Mia Asher has a way with words. Her writing and ideas are brilliant. After reading Arsen, I became a huge fan. When I heard she had a new book coming out, I jumped at the chance to read it. Though it is nothing like her debut novel, it was still completely mesmerizing and compelling.

Blaire. What can I even say about our little gold digger Blaire. Personally, I think Blaire is misunderstood. There is more to her than meets the eye. I just know it. She grew up in an unideal way. Blaire

Oh. My. Freaking. God.

I didn’t see that coming. That ending hit me like a fish slap.





Thank God the next installment is already out otherwise I’d lose my mind.

Did I love this book?

I don’t know. I’m still not sure whether to hate it or love it. But one thing is for sure, it completely blew me away. Because it's intense, scandalous, disgusting, obnoxious, mind-blowing and wrong on so many levels. It’s everything I despise in real life and yet I devoured it like a woman starved.

She hardened her heart, hidden it and her hopes for love away, determined to always protect herself. She doesn't want love, she wants mon

I think it’s a true testament to this author’s writing when her stories feature highly unlikeable characters and boundary-pushing plotlines, yet I still crave more of her words and dive right in to her books. Either that or I’m a masochist. Probably both LOL! Anyways, after almost having a heart attack from reading the angsty Arsen, I was both nervous and excited to start this one as I knew Mia would bring her A-game. And boy, did she ever!

Mia Asher surely can write a steamy hot story with some gut wrenching angst thrown in for good measure. I seriously couldn't put it down and let me just say, I was not falling asleep on this one.... AT ALL.

"What is love? I don’t know. I’ve never had it. Is it even real?”

Blair White grew up never knowing love, it started at a young age when she was neglected by her parents and continued through school when she was shunned by her peers. I can’t really imagine what that does to a person, but I can see how it would either destroy them or turn them a survivor. Blair White is a survivor.

It didn’t take her long to realize what people wanted from her, and when that happened she began

Yikes! Another one of those 'everybody-loved-it-but-me' kind of books. To be fair, I really didn't know what to expect with this book. So signed up for an ARC based off of the blurb, which was totally giving off an anti-heroine vibe. I was looking forward to reading something different.

One thing’s for certain, Mia Asher can write and she does it in such a way that it literally depletes your lungs of oxygen. Her words become the bursts of air your body requires. She takes you and grips you. She's got a way with making you feel. It doesn't matter if those feelings are despair, anger or frustration. It doesn't matter if they're happy, euphoric or scorching... No, Mia has such a way with description and storytelling that you want the hurt, you crave the agonizing pull from deep wi ...more

Blaire White grew up bullied by peers at school and ignored by parents at home. At a young age, she learned not to rely on anyone else. As she grew older, she realized her beauty was worthy trait and used it fully to her advantage by luring rich men into her grasp. She was happy with her superficial life until she met two suitors who could give her what she always wanted.

Did you read that blurb? Ya' just gotta love a Mia Asher story and this one does not disappoint. Blaire is right, you will probably hate her.

The story starts out when Blaire is eighteen and we get to know a bit about her childhood and some of the reasons for why she does the things she does. Meaning...she's never felt loved so she shuts off all emotions and just takes what she wants. It then moves into the present, five years later.

The problem is...there's a whole lotta men and it's confusing.

Well...I'm not sure what exactly I expected to get from this book. I mean, I knew from the blurb that this one would definitely be an interesting one, and it totally was. But I didn't think I would be able to enjoy a book as much as I did while hating the heroine the whole time.

Blaire White grew up an overweight child who was bullied, and never had many friends. She was an only child raised by parents who were never around. They gave her gifts not love. She grew up lonely, empty, & hollow, and felt unlovable & worthless. She was either purposefully ignored or made fun of, and she craved attention. With no sense of self worth, she needed other peoples acceptance to feel go

If I had read the reviews, I probably would not have read Easy Virtue because l despise love triangles. To be fair and accurate, no cheating occurred in the book but it seems like Blaire will have to make certain choices in book two. How is she going to choose between these men?

This is a story of intense emotion. One that pivots your senses and brings them to a heighten level and keeps you there throughout the journey.

Blaire White is a gold digger- "Any woman whose primary interest in a relationship is material benefits. A woman who cares more about a man's bank account than she does about the man." Blaire makes no excuses as to why she is as she is but how she became that way tugs at your heartstrings. It's emotional and tragic because Blaire doesn't b

Blaire is the epitome of a gold digger.
