A fashion model’s scandalous erotic odyssey continues in the sequel to Cult of Beauty: the Secret Life of a Supermodel, as Katie Wolfer battles with her step-sister and gets in deep with a charismatic, French billionaire on a secret project: The Lotus. Rife with drugs, wild sex and other questionable behaviors, Katie’s story is a roller coaster ride that pulls back the curtain on a shocking world.
As one of the most beautiful women in the world, Katie is a magnet for people’s desire, and she herself has a deep wild streak that makes her a perfect match for French aristocrat and polo player, Victor de Goncourt. He wants her to help him run a very special project: The Lotus. Can business and pleasure mix?
This is the second book in the series and it could be read alone, as the author did a great job in giving us back ground to the story, but I highly recommend you read the first book as well. A brief over view, Katie has already lost her mother and her step father (whom she feel in love with) has died. His death is suspicious but she believes he died fighting for the right to love her with another man. She is now left with her step fathers business partner and two step siblings, one who has some mental issues.
The story takes us on the journey Katie begins at this phase of her life. She is in her early 20’s and is a very successful model but she fears she is aged out of modeling already so she needs to make plans for her future. She goes through hearing the will of her step father and then the battle of who really deserves anything with her step sister. She goes to the funeral in France and meets Victor.
She is now faced with the fact she may walk out of this family without the money she was promised, or she could take Victor up on this great offer to help run the Lotus (one of the biggest, richest party scenes known to man) She is also conflicted with her upbringing of being a good girl, going to a good college, getting the best grades she could, being one of the top models in the business, to now being willing to be a sex slave and participate in just about every kind of sex event you could imagine and some I couldn’t even begin to make up.
By the end of the book she has decided that she can’t keep going this route, but Victor has other plans. The ending will leave you in a cliff hanging situation but don’t fear the third book is coming soon. The writer did a wonderful job developing the characters and the plot, it is just hard not to let the plot get lost in all of the sex scenes. There were no times of the story dragging and I was able to invest myself in her situation of trying to find out who she was. The world she knew and the world she was living in now was black and white and the author did a great job of showing there were no gray areas in her world. It was all or nothing. She lost her self worth and dignity, but she never lost her will to reach for it again.
This scorching erotic memoir reveals the secret life of one of the world’s most beautiful fashion models, as she falls for the wrong men (and women). The story begins in Paris when Katie Wolfer steps off the Dior runway and takes a call from her stepfather, Daniel de Goncourt. Her mother has committed suicide. Katie flees back to New York, where two men will loom large in her life—Gavin Poole, a hot, emerging fashion designer who doesn’t like to commit, and her billionaire French stepfather, the magnetic Daniel. Katie becomes entangled with both of them, exploring her darkest sexual desires amidst a lavish, decadent lifestyle.
Katie’s story will sweep you up in a world of beauty, sensuality and power. She is always in the crosshairs, seducing or being seduced. Thrilling, shocking and also thoughtful, this novel about a supermodel’s sexual awakening is sure to arouse and intrigue you.
