a book in review!

Brief Summary:
Enough for twenty-five-year-old Shea O'Grady, a Boston-based grad student. She just doesn't have the stomach for it. Or the lips. So she comes up with a better way to use her youthful sexiness to pay off her debts. When she shares her plan to seduce and rob johns with her nasty tempered pimp, he agrees to fence her take for a generous cut. So Shea puts together a team of girls to work with her and convinces her downstairs neighbor, a hunky Rastafarian dealer dude, to help with the knockout drugs. But picking up rich guys and relieving them of their excess bling is not as easy as it seems. Sometimes it's even more dangerous than a job on the street. 

The Blow Off is a cautionary tale, a romantic black comedy, and a satirical look at student debt, prostitution, woman on man crime, and the things we do for love.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Throughout reading this book, I kept thinking "Wow, it reads like a movie". The author definitely has a way with words! This book is under 200 pages, but you won't feel like it's short on the plot. The story will have you hooked instantly. This 4 star book is one for when you don't have anything planned for a Saturday night and there's nothing, but reruns on. Do yourself a favor and pick up The Blow Off and be prepared to go on an adventure that you won't forget, xo!

The tropics provide a lush, steamy setting for hot Florida pulp.
