And there’s nothing wrong with using what your mama gave you to get exactly what you want . . .”Celess knew she had to stop living the fast life and settle down, maybe even start a family—if she could find a man who could get past her secret. But you know what they say: Once you go bad, you can never go back. And if beauty is pain, Celess has suffered more than most and she knows how to use her looks to her advantage. She hooks up with well-connected Miami bad girl Sienna, and together they move with one purpose—get money.When modeling and bit parts in movies aren’t enough, Celess and Sienna leave L.A. and head to Italy to open what quickly becomes the fastest-growing escort service in the world. They have it all—looks, style, and a six-months-long waiting list. Life is good, but they know the deal—there are always haters on the way to the top. Celess and Sienna are ready for the backstabbing and drama that come with money, power, and sex, but they’ll be surprised by just who will turn on them. Be careful who you trust . . .

Editorial Reviews

In this final series entry (after Secret Society and Never Enough), Celess and girlfriend Si-Si are on the run from a murder charge stemming from an earlier L.A. mess. Landing in Genoa, Italy, the pair hook up with Andrew Coselli, a dude so wealthy he has not one but two Bugatti Veyrons, each worth $1.7 million. This Thelma and Louise duo severs connections to their prior lives by pulling the SIM cards from their cell phones, then setting up a call girl enterprise for wealthy clients. Si-Si and Celess live the high life by partying and shopping in Genoa, Rio, Cape Town, Mumbai, and Dubai. They don't realize things are going wrong: a shadowy figure from their past seeks revenge, and Celess starts hitting cocaine hard. Watch out, girls! Saying "Til death do us part" might be more than a trite vow. Verdict Celess, a sassy and reckless transsexual, is a fresh take on the strong females found in street lit, and Miasha's pacing moves faster than a private jet. Still, this reviewer had problems with the work's rushed ending, but that won't slow patron demand.—Rollie Welch, "The Word on Street Lit," BookSmack! 8/19/10 (c) Copyright 2010.
