Off the Chain by Candice Dow

London Reed's dreams of becoming a veterinarian are spoiled when she isn't accepted to veterinarian school. Instead, she decides to start a dog walking service, but her high-powered mother thinks the job is beneath her and gets London a job working for the sexy William Thorne, a senior investment banker with a multi-million dollar portfolio.

Several months later, budget cuts force Thorne to fire London but not before making her an offer she can't refuse; have sex with him for money. One date turns into an ongoing affair and Thorne lets London in on a little secret--he's been running a call-girl service for over fifteen years and claims it makes so much money he's become addicted. London shortly finds herself enjoying the life of a high-priced call girl and when Thorne's wife becomes terminally ill, she takes over the service.

Everything is going great until an unexpected magazine article surfaces forcing London to make a decision: expose her clients or go to jail.

Candice Dow delves into the world of escorts. London Reed is a college graduate but she's doing anything but using her degree. After not getting into veterinary school as planned, circumstances lead her to taming another type of beast. With only exclusive customers, London soon finds herself traveling the world with luxuries at her fingertips. But all that glitters is certainly not gold as London soon finds out. "Off the Chain" is as much about choices, regrets and consequences as it is about the main character, London, finding herself. London is kind of coasting through life until she smacks into the wall of reality. While Dow has consistently produced enjoyable reads, this one was just a little lackluster for me. The plot and characters were interesting enough but the story seemed to be missing some umph and was a little predictable. With a list of six books and a half to her credit, "Off the Chain" is unfortunately my least favorite. That said, "Off the Chain" is entertaining as it has its moments and is worth the read. Look forward to what Candice Dow has in store for readers next. Reviewed by: Toni 3.75 stars

As an undergraduate at Georgetown, London Reed developed her theory of relationships that is based on men like petting and praise as much as dogs do. London planned to attend veterinary school after graduation, but that failed to happen. Instead she becomes a dog walker with a college debt rivaling the Feds. Her mother believing being a canine companion is beneath her daughter and arranges for London to obtain a position working for Quinn Forester Senior Investment Banker William Thorne. However, her admin position at Quinn Forester ends due to budget cuts. Instead Thorne offers a chance to make real money in the high end call-girl service that he and his wife have run lucratively for a decade and a half. He trains her and she makes quite a bit of cash for two hours with her first client the "King". As London becomes a woman of choice, Thorne selects her to keep the business running when his spouse becomes deathly ill. Someone sells the sex story to a magazine that leads the FBI to the DC Madam London who has a choice tell all for five years of probation or plead client confidentiality and go to jail. Until her kennel burns, London is unaware of the second order effect of confession as an adversary wants her dead. This is an entertaining look at the high priced DC call girl business. London is a terrific protagonist who along with her Johns keeps the story line focused on the activities of a woman of pleasure. Although a late happening feels contrite but thankfully dangling (like some of the protagonist's customers), readers will appreciate the dog walker servicing the affluent on and Off the Chain.
