Back in January I read, reviewed and liked Lisa Lawrence's debut (at least I'm pretty sure it's her debut) erotic thriller Strip Poker. Incidentally, another book that I'm having a hard time recommending to people even though I really liked it. I did mail my copy to my sister though. Maybe I can convince her to do a drive-by review for the blog. Anyway, after finishing that book I was struck by how wonderful it would work as a series - and either Lawrence, her publisher or both must have had the same thought. Book 2 is coming (tee hee) soon.
Beg Me by Lisa Lawrence
Bantam Dell, $13.00, ISBN 978-0-385-34104-2
Publication Date: May 29, 2007
From Bangkok to London to New York to Nigeria, Teresa Knight travels the globe investigating an alarming murder mystery that leads her right into the heart of New York City's BDSM (bondage, sadomasochism) cult. In order to infiltrate this mysterious culture and its posh enclaves, Teresa is forced to partake in new sexual practices...and have some fun of her own along the way. But as she starts to unravel how two murders - separated by almost forty years and several thousand miles - can be linked to a larger, more terrifying scheme, she finds herself in very dangerous territory.Observations On My Part:
I totally dig this cover, but dang that girl has like no hips! And yeah, the BDSM thing has been beat to death (tee hee), but I'm willing to overlook this since I really enjoyed the first book and the memorable heroine. And seriously, how can you not love the idea of an erotic thriller series? The mystery lover in me is giddy.
