Let me just start by saying that this is a great little novella.
Set in what I see as a southern Florida type of town, the story follows Maire, Esme and Niki in their search for a sugar daddy. Each has different motivation for their quest for a seemingly easy bank roll. Student loans, trying to make another man happy and fund his dreams, finding a means to start a new life. Whatever the reason, it surely is not as great as it seems. Most of these men are significantly older than the women they are seeking. Often they have some sick fetish they are requiring to be met. Any way you slice it it’s prostitution. And that is a dangerous world to be in.
I felt sympathy for these women. Their desperation and need for a large amount of quick cash led them to their current situation. It all looks glamorous from the outside. Nice car, rent paid, shopping sprees, you name it. It is at their disposal. But at what price? No woman wakes up one day and says, gee I’d really like to have sex with a man three times my age just so I can pay my bills. It’s also not hard to imagine how they ended up in their position either. Big dreams and a small bank account or lack of resources could easily lead anyone to this position. Shame and fear of judgment, not wanting to ask friends or family for help. All of these things are a dangerous combination.
This story was sexy, but also with a deadly mystery involved. These men are accustomed to getting their way, and do not like being told no. There is nothing their money cannot buy or buy their way out of. These women are disposable, they could be any girl. I found them all endearing and empathized with their desperation. I also loved the mystery that was woven into the story. Who is the bad guy? Who is the liar, the manipulator? I greedily devoured this book as I had to know the fate of these women and who was ultimately pulling the string.
Great story for a day at the beach or poolside with a fruity drink.
4 stars and a blue martini! Enjoy!
