Love is selfish...

My name is Blaire.
I'm the bad girl.
The other woman.
The one who never gets the guy in the end.

I'm the gold digger.
The bitch.
The one no one roots for.
The one you love to hate.

I hate myself too...

Everyone has a story. Are you ready for mine?

Easy Virtue has been on my Kindle for ages now, and I finally got around to reading it. In short, I really liked it, but I am a bit frustrated at the heroine, and at the huge, massive, gaping cliffhanger at the end of the book.

So… Easy Virtue is my first book by Mia Asher and tells the story of Blaire White, an “ugly little duckling” who used to be the outsider at school and grow up as an only child to two messed-up parents who never made her feel loved. The moment Blaire grew up and turned into a beautiful and sexy woman, she moved to New York, started to pursue her own personal path to vengeance and became a self proclaimed gold-digger.

“I am allowed to be that selfish girl who likes to put herself first, the girl who would rather have an expensive bag that a love letter.”

In other words, Blaire is not ashamed to admit that she sleeps with rich and famous of New York in exchange for money, clothes, trendy purses, and fancy places to stay. She never gives or expects anything more than sex.

However, after her latest prey dumped her, she accidentally meets Ronan who is a wonderful and handsome man, but who’s rather the “nice guy next door” rather then the type of guy she usually goes for. And as she ;efts herself grow more and more close to him, she starts to become afraid of what Ronan would think of her if he know the truth, and braces herself for the sting of the rejection…

“Once upon a time, there was an unloved Blaire (…) She promised that she would never let herself grow close to anyone; that she would never let love cut her wings and make a prisoner of her once again. That way she would remain safe and unharmed.”

It is difficult for me to cast a vote on that book just yet. There was this huge cliffhanger, and there feeling that there is much more to the story the reader needs to know. But I am definitely intrigued and despite the fact that I do not agree with Blaire’s behaviour (and that it is frankly difficult to relate to her), my interested is piqued, and I can’t wait for the next part to be released, as I really, really want to know if Blaire will take the risk of choosing love over money.
