"He prefers women over forty-five years old who are articulate, intelligent and bright working professionals in need of attention and fun. Be careful ladies, Jett is addictive and you will want to take him home!"
There is nothing sexier than a well-written adult story. This book has it all: infidelity, sex, emotional drama, soul searching, and revenge. Ellis grasps the reader’s imagination with a gripping, heart-wrenching tale of infidelity, descriptive sex, and emotional torment. The writing is intense and slick with erotically vivid language.
The novellas’ main character, Carlos, faces the reality of a failing marriage that he thought was built on love, but was in fact build on lust, wealth, and power. After returning early from a business trip to surprise his wife a day before their anniversary, Carlos is devastated when he arrives home and hears his wife, Dr. Jessica Davenport, having sex with another man. He is furious and wants to harm his wife and her lover. However, Carlos’ foster sister, Colleen, convinces him to consider the consequences: losing custody of his three daughters and prison time. Instead, she suggests sweet revenge.
Fast forward two years. Carlos has refocused and gotten himself in shape. He and his sisters, Colleen and Kristen, and a few select staff create a sex fantasy business for mature women. The money earned from this venture is to fund his impending divorce and custody battle. Anger can be the best motivator. Carlos has difficult decisions to make leaving him at the cusp of good and evil.
Although intense, the story is classy and romantically erotic. It’s fast-paced and reads like a television soap opera. Ellis’ narrative is excellent with an emotionally charged conclusion, leaving the reader yearning for more.
