You ever read a book in a genre you don't usually read and think, "Damn, I should read those kinds of books more often"? That's what I thought after this debut, only I'm not sure what genre it falls into. The book had a bit of everything-- action, sex, smarts, an underlying point ... I'd describe it as a women's ocean 11, but with more at stake than just money and revenge. It was a much enjoyed fast, fun read.

This is not the type of book I’d normally pick up, but I’m glad I did because it gave me insight into a world I know absolutely nothing about. This Robin Hood story of a feminist, independent madam (for lack of a better word) gave me a perspective on the sex industry that I’d never seen before. Marisol is a take-no-prisoners boss who respects her employees and allows them to have control over their bodies and their work, despite their position as sex workers. It gave me insight into how this profession could be. The story itself is fast-paced and titillating (the sex scenes are steamy!) as Marisol protects those she loves and takes revenge on those who treat women poorly (or worse). The action scenes are tense and exciting, and this is definitely the novel for those who want some excitement in their lives!
