Smart and Sexy

"Cult of Beauty" introduces us to Katie, a supermodel who's keenly attuned to her body and her desires, both mental and physical. She's also smart, thoughtful and flawed. Katie struggles, as we all do, with the pull between what we want and what is "right," what is fun and what is dangerous, and it's a hell of a ride! Katie tells the story, and her voice is fresh, insightful, often cuttingly funny. The writing is gorgeous throughou

Dirty. Sexy. Taboo. Sad. Dynamic. Addictive.

Wow, it was a wild ride!

Katie Wolfer is a 22-year old supermodel known around the world. Her life is perfect, until a terrible family tragedy brings her home to New York from the Paris runways. Reality hits her in the face and she must look inside herself - not just rely on her outer beauty. Being a model, the “outside” has always been the most important thing. But life isn’t just about physical wants. It’s about emotional needs and desires. This is th

I will admit if it wasn't for this tour I don't know if I would have picked it up but I am glad that I got the chance to read this.

This book definitely was an erotica novel with more sex than story. I do prefer when their is more substance and romance but this book did keep me on an erotic edge the whole way through.



The thing about this book was also Katie's lifestyle which is not the typical norm for most people so it was like being a voyeur into her life with the sex and lots of sex,

I was given a copy of this book for my honest review

To say this book was not my cup of tea would be a slight understatement, from the synopsis of the book I was expecting a great smut book. It started out interesting with Katie finding out her mother had died, she leaves the fashion show that had just ended and gets ready to fly home. She gets home and that's were the book lost me, she lusts after her dead mothers husband, then she proceeds to have sex with everyone. By everyone I mean her stepf

KM Dylan was a model before turning to the pen. I've seen pictures and she looks super.

In 'Cult of Beauty' she brings us her inside knowledge to weave a highly-charged, deeply erotic love triangle that leaved supermodel Katie Wolfer balanced on the highwire between the toned muscular arms of total hunk Gavin Poole and the sophisticated embrace of the the patrician millionaire Daniel de Goncourt - her stepfather, adding a decadent twist to this compulsive novel.

Which one will she chose? Only on

This was a DNF for me. I just couldn't get in to it--maybe it was the writing style, I don't know. Unfortunately it just wasn't for me.

Okay so my girl who is doing this blog with me didn't care much for the book and so I was a little apprehensive when I finally got a chance to start it. I will have to say that yes this book may not be for everyone, I did like it. It was a good hot read that I was in need for and I do believe that is a HUGE reason as to why someone will or will not like your book. You have to be in the mood for that 'type' of book. There are a few books that I didn't care for but others absolutely LOVED and well ...more

Where do I begin??? I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I knew going in that it was a fictionalized memoir, but it felt so real reading it. I had to take a few days before writing my review, because I was left a bit speechless. Also, I knew it was an erotic novel, but WOW! Let's just say my husband was really happy when I finished reading this one.

My perception of what life is like for a supermodel is based on what I've seen on tv or read in magazines. Sure, I appreciate beaut

It thrills me to say another great, fabulous, intriguing and stupendous book. This was a learning experience for me. I knew and of course read a lot about the modeling industry, but never such a raw version about the model and her point of view. One thing I learned was: GO to France. Those French people could teach the stick up the ass American's a lot. Everyone no matter what they look like is beautiful. They are born to be free and very expressive. I like that idea!

Don’t judge this book by its cover. Cult of Beauty made me feel hot. And dirty. Almost to the point of distraction from the writing and the story.

Cult of Beauty is the story of Katie, a 22 year old supermodel who goes home to attend her mother’s funeral. She is alone and without any close family. Katie is taken in by her step-father, Daniel. This is a fictionalized memoir, but the reading felt more like reality and I wondered where the lines were blurred.

"Fifty Shades - I'm sorry you're out. Cult of Beauty - you're in" *in my best Heidi Klum voice*

This novel is the future of erotica and KM Dylan nailed it by writing a story that is so compelling and seductive that I was not able to put it down until I was done reading it - twice. If you enjoy novels that draw you into a world of explicit hot sex, beautiful models, fashion, drugs, and all the naughty things that are so bad that they're good, then this is the book for you. I'd describe it as an x-

Okay first I have to give my speech about this book not being appropriate for readers UNDER 18. This is an adult book with adult themes and LOT"S OF SEX scenes that are not suitable for younger readers.

Okay with that being said this book was the craziest book I have every read. Lord I laughed sometimes and then there were times when I was like oh sh$$ did she just think that.... Man what a crazy story about a young model at the top of her game. Katie is living the high life doing what she wants

On writing this review I see I bought this ebook back in January, I can't believe I didn't get around to reading it sooner. I was completely sucked into the life of model Katie Wolfer, the sadness of her mothers death and the twisted love triangle that is Gavin, Daniel and Katie. Lavish parties, plush dinners, photo shoots, sex, hot men, beautiful women, money, drugs, and fast cars. Although a bit cliche` it has what you'd expect from a world with beauty, money and power. But it does have some i ...more

OH MY......this was one hell of a HOT book, definitely unlike any other erotic books I have read. Honestly, there were points when I wasn't even sure what the story was about because all I could focus on was the sex, sex, and more sex but the storyline picked up about half way through the book. 3 stars

A highly erotic (F/F, M/F/M scenes), fast paced, unpredictable and very well written story that will have your panties in a moist bunch pretty quickly. Any erotica fans will enjoy losing themselves within the pages of Cult of Beauty!

Oh wow. This book was a lot to handle. Between wearing dead mother's thongs, lusting after step-father, doing drugs with said step-father. Oh and then the taboo of the step-sister, watching your daughter hook-up then doing drugs with said daughter. It was a lot to process. It was nuts. My head is all over the place. I think there might be another book. The ending was a little sad. But all in all you can't stop reading because you're like WTF I need to know what kind of crazy happens next!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very well written and I do recommend it. Not only was it very sexy and fun, it kept me completely engaged from start to finish. The tone and narrative was appealing and I felt as though Katie was a friend giving me a run down on her life and all of the goings on. I really enjoyed the voyeur's view into a lifestyle of high fashion, fame and fortune that I will never experience. As with all good stories it left me wanting more. Hats off to Ms. Dylan.

This book was...... intensely frustrating. Really no other way to put it. I won't go into details explaining the book as lots of others have already done that, but damn! While there is tons of sex in this book, it's not necessarily erotica. It's more like she's trying to find direction after privilege and tragedy. Seriously complex emotions in this book and I ALMOST cried at the end.... seriously sad. Great book, tho!

Oh My God!!! Seriously that is all I can say. This book is ultra naughty, there is lots of hot sex in it. The money that is spent on clothes, bags, bathing suits, ahh it's like a dream. And the ending of this book, OMG, honestly I was surprised, and kind of crushed. Looking forward to reading the second book now!

Wow! Just Wow! I really don’t know where to begin this review. I finished reading this book literally 30 seconds ago & I’m just floored by the ending. It was not at all what I expected!

Let me begin by saying that this book wasn’t my usual cup of tea (or coffee in my case). However, I did find it quite entertaining. A few other descriptive words come to mind as well: raw, gritty, sensual, seductive and erotic. Yes, deeply erotic.

Although this wasn’t my usual type of book, the storyline intri

Wow. Just wow. And not in the good way.

I thought this would be more of an insightful exposé into the lives of high fashion supermodels and that sounded interesting. I knew from the reviews that it ventured into the erotica realm, so I kind of knew what I was getting into (though, not to the full extent, never having read one of that genre before), but figured it was somewhat inevitable, in order to accurately portray the life of someone involved in this industry. What it ultimately was, was one

“Shame is shameful, life is short and you should do what you want to do.”

This was definitely a highly entertaining, fast paced story. This is a story of exploration and awakening as well as self-discovery, with the main character making no apologies for her actions. It completely takes you out of the normal run of the mill day and catapults you into a life of the decadent, the rich, and the sexually open and liberated; combined with issues like death, drugs and family dynamics.

Have you ever wondered what a life of a person so beautiful it hurt to look at them may be like???? Cult of Beauty: The Secret Life of a Supermodel does just that. This is a very dark, sensuous, overtly and sexual story of a world famous supermodel who is dealing with some family issues in a very unique, indulgent, and self satisfying manner.

Katie walks off of a Paris runway... literally... and hears the news that her mother has died. The only living parent 22 year old Katie had is gone and she

Cult of Beauty is about a supermodel who gets the call that her mother has passed while shes finishing a fashion show in Paris. This pushes her into an erotic journey that includes women, her stepfather, college boys, drugs and extravagance. It honestly was hard for me to get into. I think the only thing that kept me reading was the hot sex! lol But overall the whole vibe of it was very strange for me.

K M Dylan is a former model turned author. She is half French, half American and lives in NYC.

Her introduction to erotica was from amazing classics her parents had hidden away. After reading books by Anais Nin, Emmanuelle Arsan and Pauline Reage's Story of O, she decided it was okay to experiment sexually and came to view sex as a sensuous erotic experience. Her adventures have provided lots of in
