I was excited for a hot sexy kinky story, but sadly this was not that book. While the sex is hot, the story is not. The main character, in my opinion, is flighty, whiny and a flip-flopping emotional wreck. Given that it is written in the first person, that left me feel confused and not happy with the choices she was making in the novel. However, the story is cohesive (mostly) and it never hurts to have a story where your characters are wealthy and beautiful.
If you are looking for a pro-kink story, keep looking (and let me know if you find it!). But for the average female reader, perhaps this story is a bit on the naughty side. It's definitely mindless summer reading, and that is often delicious in its own right. The story doesn't resolve itself, demanding you read the next book, which is not yet on audible.
Charming, fun and filled with catty women! The series develops nicely in this second book. I loved Sophie and Anatoly's banter as well as the slow pace of their relationship. The book doesn't make love Sophie's number one motivation in life, which is so refreshing in a chick lit style book.
A great fun read, if you liked the first, you'll be glad you chose to follow it up.
I really enjoyed this book. The protagonist is flawed, funny, smart and very 'real'. The book is written in the first person, allowing you to see how she really ticks. Her sidekicks are memorable, fun in their own right and really keep the dialogue moving forward.
It's a private eye crime-solving comedy that will entertain you and make you want more. There's a nice dearth of sex and romance, leaving room to develop the story and the characters in it. And it has great politics without being political. Yay for Sophie Katz!
At only one hour in length, I'd hoped for a book that really perked me up, motivated me for mornings. But the dry performance left me wanting. And that dry tone is all the more salient when the book is meant to motivate its listener,
The lesson in the book is a good one, and perhaps if you are interested, you should consider the book before the audiobook. Though. it isn't as 'tip' heavy as you might want.
Overall, a mediocre listen with a good message.
