Ivanhoe Jones | 10 comments The Escort Wife is the story of an ordinary couple and the tough decisions they have to take during a financial crisis.

Leah Armitage, wife of David Armitage, is a mother of 3 adorable kids. She is a woman who can do anything for the welfare of her family, and, thus, when her husband comes up with the idea of getting into the escort business, she readily agrees to be a party to it. Little does she realizes then that the decision they have taken to survive the financial turmoil will change their lives forever and that what she is getting into is more than she has bargained for. She finds herself thrown into a world she is not prepared to deal with. Open to abuse , addiction and sexual manipulation, Leah is surrounded by hedonism and decadence to the point where she seems to lose connection with her real self. The story of Leah losing her way makes a good read but how she bounces back to reclaim her life and win back the people she loves is something that makes it a great read.

The book explores the nature of human life through relationships, desires, motivations, and happiness. As the author himself states, “While stress and emotional triggers may differ, basic human desire does not.” The desire for maintaining the same life style, the stress of dealing with a devastating family business leading to financial crisis seems to be the motivation behind Leah’s and David’s decision to get into escort business . As such, Ivanhoe Jones’s characters are realistic, human and believable. The readers are familiar to them as they read through - one can easily relate to their emotions, stresses and conflicts.

What I liked most is that even though the book has some extremely intimate scenes, there is no overdose of sex, something unlikely in a book of erotic genre. I think these scenes can more appropriate be termed as sizzling romance upheld by a definite purpose.

Charlie B. | 93 comments Monsieur Touton, not much over four foot tall, a slight hunchback and passably good looking is shunned in his youth by the ladies but when Lilly, the housemaid, discovers his most unique physical quality one day when she walks in on him whilst he is bathing her eyes light up in surprise. Lilly wastes no time in taking him in hand, actually both hands and his life is now going to change forever as she not only educates him sexually but makes him realise that he has one great quality which will appeal to many of the lusty ladies of Paris. He later is seduced by his Governess then Madame Royale a promiscuous friend of the family who suggests that he should earn a living using his prodigious talent.
She introduces him to the darker side of Paris society, the can-can dancers, the shady clubs and other pursuits but she also arranges for him to set himself up in the local brothel as a gigolo. He soon gains a huge clientele, the Ladies intrigued and excited by the whispered stories of his unique dimensions and gentlemanly manner secretly flock to him for their sexual pleasure.
This is his story, a most unusual one that is filled with his many adventures with those ladies. No detail is spared and there are frequent touching moments as well as he develops a relationship with a young woman whom he has the greatest respect for despite her calling.
