Often shocking but never gratuitous, Monsieur is, paradoxically, a coming-of-age story—her seduction of the married man and its devastating aftermath leaving Ellie older and wiser than she once was after their four-month affair comes to its unpredictable conclusion. At once a novel-confession and a description of the descent from passion to cruel fantasy, this is the disenchantment of a contemporary Lolita.

Monsieur is a story about Ellie, a twenty year old and living in Paris, and her pursue of Monsieur, a married surgeon approaching middle age. Follow this reverse Lolita story as it starts out as a shared love of erotica novels that evolves into an affair. Spanning over several months their intense sexual adventures consists of random phone calls several, Facebook and meetings in a hotel on Tuesday mornings. As their brief affair comes to its conclusion, how will Ellie survive its devastating aftermath?
Wow, just wow! Author Emma Becker has written a very intense, dark piece of literature in Monsieur. This is an all-out memoir of sexual lust and the dark side of a young woman’s obsession as she spirals out of control. Characters are honest and raw - their depravity deliciously perverse. The language and the sex is crude but only adds a flavor which is normally missing from good erotica. This is necessary read if your tastes of erotica fall more in the “Story of O” genre.
I was provided a copy of this book for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

This book is nothing like the reviews or plot summarise i have seen. This book is a combination of french literary erotica like Annais Nin or Story of O and the original novel '9 1/2 weeks.' (Without the BDSM) We follow a girls obsessive love through long internal monologues and descriptions of her various erotic encounters. It isnt a book to read for the hot sex, even though it is unashamedly erotic, but anyone who has ever been desperatly inlove with someone while knowing that that relationship will never lead any where good will identify with her stream of concious oscilations between love and anger, joy and pain. Despite the fact that the book sort of looses its way in the middle I really enjoyed it. Some times you want brainless smut but sometimes you want to read smut that makes you think or feel in a deeper way.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
