Emma Holly, author of Hunting Midnight and Catching Midnight, turns up the heat in this R-rated saga of fashion and passion set in Paris and New York. It features two young women, Beatrix Clouet and Lela Turner, who act out all their sexual fantasies even as they stumble from lust to love. Beatrix is the daughter of the late founder of an exclusive Parisian boutique; for years she has had a crush on her mother's second, much younger husband, Philip, and now might be the time to bring their simmering attraction to a boil. Her friend Lela wants to run the boutique's New York branch and turns to magnate Simon Graves for retail advice, which he gives in return for nights of sexual adventure. But Simon is also is a corporate takeover artist, interested in the boutique. When their tradeoffs threaten the very future of the boutique and Lela and Beatrix's friendship, what -- or who -- will be the first to give? Ginger Curwen

Nasty Evangeline Clouet was the driving force behind the success of elite Meilleurs Amis Boutiques found around the world in spots for the jet setting rich and famous. However, Evangeline pushed a lover too far and he killed her. The business is run by Evangeline¿s boy toy husband Philip Carmichael while her daughter Beatrix stays away preferring to paint.

Bea arrives at the office and abruptly kisses her stunned stepfather Philip who she has loved since she met him as a teen. Soon she is under his desk playing with his wang as he listens to an accounting report that tells him the New York store is in trouble. Unable to resist Philip comes, but afterward tries to return to prim and proper. However, Bea knows she has the upper hand as he cannot ignore her lure. As they fall in love, a hostile takeover of the business occurs that places Bea best friend pulled between loyalty to her buddy and her lover, leading the takeover.

Readers who enjoy erotic romance that does not wait to turn up the heat will appreciate this sex in the boardroom just don¿t read in a public place unless you want to be considered Meg Ryan in the restaurant scene of When Harry Met Sally. The story line is either boudoir but not always in the bedroom or at the boutiques¿ offices though none of the key players except for Evangeline comes across as a business barracuda. Fans will gain immense pleasure with this sex anywhere is convenient tale.

Personal Assets is one of my favorite Emma Holly novels, and one of my favorite erotic romances ever. I first stumbled across her with Beyond Innocence (another great one!), and since then, I've been hooked. I've read everything she's written, and I'm rarely disappointed. Personal Assets is the story of two friends, each finding love in their own way. I really enjoyed the the concurrent stories, the development of each character, and of course, Emma's exploration of sex, experimentation, friendship and love. Her prose is evocative and so exquisite!

The author gives the reader lots of sex scene with the backdrop being the fashion industry. What a fun and steamy ride.
