Hold on to your chair because you are in for an insatiable treat.




This has to be one of the best books I have read in 2012...

Pynk takes us deep in the world of Lip Service; an Escort service ran by Madam Money Watts. We are also introduced to three escorts by the name of Leilani, Kemba (male escort), and Money's sister, Midori. Each of these characters is dealing with the drama in their own personal life & the lives of their "companions". That's when excitement begins...

"Funny how the very people who make the laws are sometimes the ones who patronize the offense."

When I read that line I knew I was in for a treat. This novel packs in everything from page-turning plot twists, drama, lies, sex, politics, and blackmail. Pynk does an excellent job giving each of her characters depth which made this book very satisfying to my soul. I had my opinions about Escorts, but after reading this book it made me think otherwise. While reading this book I felt as though I was a fly on the wall - having the pleasure of getting the inside scoop. Yes! I admit I'm NBN (Nosey by Nature).

I'm warning you now - clear your calendar for the day - because once you start reading this book, you won't put it down until you are on the last page.

I highly recommend this book. ( )

I have had the chance to read one of PYNK’s novels in the past and I really enjoyed it. So when I was asked to read her newest novel I was more than willing to oblige. I expected POLITICS. ESCORTS. BLACKMAIL. to be fairly similar in content to the last of her books that I read. To an extent it was. But what I really liked about this one is that along with the sex that comes with an erotic novel I felt a real connection to the characters. It was pretty refreshing. And even though there are a lot of “happy endings” in the book, the story as a whole doesn’t have a happy ending for everyone. The fact that these characters get a dose of reality really makes PYNK’s novels an even more enjoyable read.

I can’t say that I liked that characters, on a personal level. They all had some issues, and their motives weren’t always the best. But they were very well-developed characters and they each had a specific purpose in moving the story forward. Money, much like her name, was driven by money and it showed. While I didn’t agree with her, I understood why she was doing the things she did, and I respect her for being who she is regardless of what others thought of her. It was the same for all the characters. They didn’t necessarily make the same choices I would make, and I didn’t agree with what they were doing. But these characters didn’t apologize for what they were doing, because it might offend someone. I really loved that about this book. The fact that the characters despite not being the most reputable of people weren’t really hiding anything.

PYNK’s writing is awesome. She was my first exposure to erotic literature and she did a great job of breaking the stereotypes of what I thought erotic literature was. This book has a plot, it’s not just sex for the sake of sex, there is good character development, and the story is intriguing. Actually most of the ending of the book has nothing to do with sex, it’s just a good story with the sex thrown in for a different kind of reading experience. I have to say I really enjoyed reading this one and can’t wait to read another PYNK novel! ( )

POLITICS.ESCORTS.BLACKMAIL follows the life of Madam Money Watts and explores the call-girl industry as it spills over into the world of politics in New York City. Money's exclusive, top escort service operates under the name, Lip Service, and Midori Moody, Leilani Sutton and male escort Kemba Price are her high-end contractors who make a hefty living out of sex for money.

Among her clients are two New York senators who are the very officials voters have elected to make decisions for others to abide by, yet these politicians play by a different set of rules, secretly paying top dollar for the forbidden girlfriend experience. But when a freaky client takes it too far; a pimp wants in on some of the action; and an escort gets greedy, the world of Money Watts is brought to a head.
