Publisher's Summary

An aspiring artist gets a seven-figure offer that could change her life forever in this provocative and surprising short story of a woman torn between saying yes and saying no.

Alicia could do a lot with a million dollars. But what’s she willing to do for it? Her top client, a billionaire hedge fund manager, has made a very intimate business proposal. In the world of finance, it’s just another transaction, right? An efficient supply-demand exchange. At least that’s what Alicia tries to tell herself. But as the deadline for her decision closes in, it becomes clear that things are a lot more complicated than that.

Alicia is part of The Fairer Sex, a collection of sexy, satirical, and sometimes harrowing short stories that explore the question: “What do women want?” The answer is different for every woman, but each can be read or listened to in a single sitting.

Unique short

Borrowed for free via Amazon Prime membership. At 37 minutes long (including intro & credits) it’s a very short story. Alicia is an aspiring artist working at a fund management company. She’s propositioned by her supervisor, David, to a night of sex for $1 Million.

Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this as well as how unique the ending was.

I can’t imagine spending money on this or ever listening to it again. Though it was well written, an intriguing concept & perspective, and the narrator was great.

Weird

Good narration, but the story was too strange. It's not what I was expecting with the summary.

Lame story that makes women look ridiculous

What a terrible, thin, flat story. Makes women seem like ridiculous, selfish creatures who don’t actually know how to stand for what they believe in, overcome by passivity in the end. Not worth the loss of half an hour.
