Olivia Besse - Etoile: Book Review + Playlist and GIVEAWAY

Hello and Welcome to Olivia Besse's "Etoile"'s stop on my blog!

 Series: Mannequin #1
Release Date: July 25th 2013

Publisher: Wunderland Press
Purchase: Amazon

The Mannequin series is an exciting erotic romance journey that gives readers an intimate look into the not-so-glamorous sides of the fashion and modelling industries. This book contains explicit content and is not intended for younger readers!

From afar, Elodie Marais is just a typical 19-year old girl roughing it in Manhattan. She hates her job, her love life sucks and she's totally getting ripped off by her landlord. Like most of her starry-eyed peers, she'll do anything for the Triple P's—Prada, a Promotion and the elusive Perfect Boyfriend. But Elodie and her friends aren't your average new adults who are bored to tears by their uninspiring lives—they're fashion models.

So what's a girl to do when her life is turned upside down as two irresistible bachelors vie for her doe-eyed attention, just as she's starting to make waves in the modelling world? Will she go with charming and sensitive James, a handsome financier, or reckless and unpredictable Tyler, the stunning male model du jour?

Follow Elodie's adventures from Manhattan to Paris as she navigates the terrifying worlds that are the modeling industry and her love life, one effortlessly chic outfit at a time.

Fame. Fashion. Money. Sex. Romance. That's what's in store for Elodie, the world's newest supermodel. 

This book is basically sexy as sexy can be. It's great that the author chose to delve into the crazy, messy world of modelling and its highs and lows. While we may never really know what's going on in the real world of modelling, this is a good start.

Just like real life, models have friends and enemies, too. Actually, more enemies than friends, because you know, it's a glamorous and crazy life they live and people are almost always gonna want to have what they have--and that's what Elodie experiences.

But what she also experiences is romance--the good and bad side of it. The mellow and nerve-wracking, possibly heart-wrenching sides, too. It's an unpredictable world that she's living in and that's what she realizes--and that's also what you'll realize as you read this novel.

it's a fun and sexy book to read--a good way to pass time, especially if you've always liked the world of modeling or the world of celebrities.
