Ilene is a captivatingly beautiful supermodel, Faye is an award-winning advertising executive, and Alana is a brilliant editor for today's hottest fashion magazine. Now all three women are caught in the whirlwind of the super rich and famous. They find themselves the objects of the desires of every man; from movie stars, politicians, CEOs, and rock stars, to European royalty; men for whom there are no limits, nothing is too expensive, nothing is forbidden. From Manhattan to Paris to Southampton, their new worlds are a torrent of sensual delights and unlimited luxuries. But ultimately they realize that there's only one thing more satisfying than money and power: love.

Wow - I wasn't quite sure what this story was about based on the title - but got sucked in about 10 minutes afterwards. I really enjoyed this book, as it told stories of 4 women (not just the 3 inidicated). Each story stood on it's on and had lots of drama, romance, etc. Ms. Alers is one of my fave authors, so when I saw this audio, I had to purchase. Gabra Zackman also did a good job with the narraration. I'd say more, but that would give the premise of the story away. If you want a good "women's" story with some intrigue - go for it.
Based on the title and synopsis, I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book. To my surprise, I was totally captivated. I found myself loving and hating each of the main characters. In this book Alers manages to take readers into the lives of four individual women without over- or underdeveloping any one of them. Additionally, the narrator did a wonderful job breathing life into Alers' words. I will definitely keep an eye out for other titles by both this author and narrator.
Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
The first two hours of this book are so monotonous and dull that I'd rather be listening to just about anything else. The plot has so far managed to be both far fetched and unimaginative - 3 beautiful women of color whose men have all proved disappointing will now be paid up to $5000 a day to spend time with rich men. The problem is, everyone is so aloof and professional they are virtually indistinct and completely unconnected and uninvolving. I couldn't care less what happens to any of them. I also think the publisher could have gotten an Africain Americain to narrate as the pasty midwestern accent just makes a flat story flatter.
A sad waste of time and money.
I read/listen alot and this is one of the best! I would highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author. The narrator was fabulous!!! I really enjoyed it and could hardly put it down to go to work!
This was my first experience with this author, and I really liked it. It's not your typical romance story, although there are some definite "steamy" elements. Despite the pronounced differences in the characters, it was interesting and entertaining to see how they were drawn to each other and interfaced in each other's lives. I rarely listen to books twice, but I will probably make an exception with this one.
Avid reader paper, hardcover, listening, e-read. Reading is fundamental! Now let's talk.
Well written, vivid characters, great content that is meaningful. Recommended read. I could not stop listening. Thought this would be a book with not much substance but gave it a chance - - was I WRONG! I have recruited several new audible members who wanted to purchse this one.
i love the narrator as usual she is great this book is smooth yet exciting and yes i was looking for a happy ending. i listened straight thru.Nice to see black women being portrayed as sucessful women in such a diverse way.i read allers before.i would like to hear more from her on audible.com.This book is not just fluff,but fluff with substance.Very enjoyable characters.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I just could not get enough of this book. the characters are sexy and realistic.
