Mirage by Alice Tribue
Series: Mirage – Book #1
Genre: erotica, contemporary romance.
I’m the woman your husband thinks about while he’s on top of you at night…
At least, that’s how I tell the girls I hire to think.
Being an escort is no easy job, and being a madame is no easier…
I’m in the business of selling fantasies and dreams to million dollar clients, and if you think what I do is harmful to society, then think again. (If it wasn’t for me, there’d be a lot more unhappy and unproductive businessmen and a lot more drug addicted prostitutes in the world)
I guard privacy and secrets with my own life, and I’ve never slipped up or got caught, not once.
But there’s something about the man I just met, something that makes me uneasy, especially since he’s interested in me…
And he’s offering me a whole lot more than anyone ever has before…
I’m just not sure if this is a risk worth taking–if letting him into my life is the right thing, or if the red flags I’m currently seeing are real or another mirage…
One thing about Alice’s writing – she gives me something unique every time. It would be easy to use the formula of her other works – change the names and the settings but I know I’m going to get something new and fresh every time.
I really like the heroine of this story. She’s strong, she’s successful, she’s got a ‘take no prisoners’ attitude and when I learned of her heartbreaking back story to the life she’s forged for herself, I loved her even more. The tenacity of Nicholas is admirable. He doesn’t take no for an answer. He pushes her boundaries and moves her out of her comfort zone.
This story has all the right things to make it an enjoyable read – there’s tension of all sorts. There’s lust, sexy times and an ending you won’t see coming. Alice, you have delivered.
I was given an advance reader copy for my honest opinion.
