Sometimes chasing a dream can become a nightmare…
Alecia Preen is living in poverty and desperate to make a better life for herself. Having moved to a new area for new beginnings after being disowned by her family, money was fast running out. She is struggling to make ends meet.
With the intention of charging lonely men online for her services, Alecia realises she can supplement her income by being unscrupulous. In meeting Jake Parker he requests that she role-plays as a psychiatrist, but he makes her aware of an underground millionaires playground called Sordida. He warns her to stay away.
As Alecia’s curiosity gets the better of her, she is amazed by the wealth and decadence on offer. Sordida is not the club she had anticipated because behind the legendary name lurks a very dark secret. A secret that could cost her everything.
He pays by the hour and Alecia pays in ways she had never imagined.

Not for the feint hearted but oh so addictive and intense, this novella kept me turning the pages from beginning to end.
Alecia is an interesting character. I admired her but didn’t like her much to be fair which for me, made the reading experience more fascinating. She’s obviously a clever lady with qualifications etc but wants the money and lavish lifestyle without putting in much work. While working as an escort she catches a whiff of what seems like a winner but is it more than she can handle?
I found the plot intense as I could see things through Alecia’s eyes but there was a sinister vibe throughout the whole thing that just gave a sense of foreboding and despite her not being the most likeable, I desperately wanted to protect her from what I felt was coming.
I’m not a huge reader of erotica but the sexual aspect of the novel was done brilliantly, and it fit well within the plot. It was not gratuitous and unnecessary and for me it played like scenes from a saucy film. The swinging scene is an unusual topic for a mainstream novel, and I found it fascinating and enthralling.
A gripping and fast paced thriller that is hard to put down and will have you gripped until the ending, which is well worth the wait.
