A 21ST CENTURY COURTESAN
Genre: Erotic Romance
Bradley starts out with a great idea -- high-end call girl meets the man of her dreams and decides to leave the world's oldest profession -- and an interesting point-of-view choice -- first-person, present tense. Unfortunately, the second half of the book isn't terribly erotic. There's nothing but long, dull conversations between the heroine and her therapist, lots of crying, too much confronting-the-past angst and very little sex. A disappointment.
Valentine's life as a high-priced "escort" is satisfying, until she meets Joshua, a decent guy and the man of her dreams. Valentine is convinced that he's too good for her, but rather than give him up, she decides to confront her past and leave the business. First, however, she has to tell Joshua what she's been doing for a living for the past 10 years. (DELTA, Apr., 336 pp., $13.00)
