Allison Hobbs is back and she remains my favorite author, this follow up to " A Bonafide Gold Digger" reassures me that Allsion will remain in my top position. No one writes like Ms. Hobbs and NO ONE is this freaky, thats for sure!!! There's drama erotica and even some humor in this wild tale!!

The super conceited diva Milan Walden is back! After her fiasco with Noah, Milan manages to land Pure Paradise as her very own salon after the embarassing way she was fired the previous year. Milan's salon is luxurious and caters to pampered wealthy women of Philadelphia.....and the super freaky who enjoy the wildest, raunchiest acts you will ever read about! Milan's salon offers a variety of salon treatments in addition to a secret, super spicy speciality menu!

Milan still engages in unspeakable acts with males and females and has even taken on "dominatrix" role, has developed a liking of the BDSM lifestyle and has a wealthy billionaire, Maxwell Torrance as a personal slave!!! Milan also "gets it on" with her assistant, Sumi and a variety of other Pure Paradise "employees" they all work hard to satisfy her insaitiable appetite. The goings on at Pure Paradise are insane. But Milan can't focus all her attention on Pure Paradise, Maxwell or part time lover Sumi because her driver, Hilton Dorsey has her attention! Hilton is a former NFL player and he is drop dead gorgeous!! Milan has been creeping with him and feels she is actually falling in love!

Can Milan keep her salon running, her wierdo lovers satisfied and manage to have a real relationship with Hilton? Or will Milan's cold as ice exterior and appetite for all things freaky be her downfall??? Cuddle up with this book and turn up the air conditioning!!! This book is HOTTTTTT!!!!!!!!

Milan makes her return (Bona Fide Gold Digger) and she has not changed one single bit. I'd even go as far to say that she's gotten worse. Actually, the more I think about it, she MOST DEFINITELY has gotten worse! Her sexual depravity so unmatched and so freaky that she could be Satan's own dominatrix! Yeah, this book is pretty heavy on the S&M so be warned. I'm not a fan of S&M but I am a fan of Allison and this woman... geez!... I want to know and I don't want to know how she comes up with some of these story lines... and WHERE in the world does Allison come up with the women!?

There were more than a few times that my mouth just dropped open while reading, literally. Sumi does a trick with her body that will make you shake your head and say, "naaawwww"! There were a few times that I just froze because I did not believe what I just read. (Can you REALLY do that with a [...] implant)? Royce, the security guard will turn your stomach (or excite you if you are as freaky as Milan). Allison's casts of characters are the "Old Bay" seasoning on an already mouthwatering steamed crab of a story.

Milan made me wanna jump in this book and go Ike Turner on [...]. Her antics are above extreme and her sexual appetite is even higher than that. Milan wants what she wants and nothing, and I mean NOTHING, stops her from getting what she wants. She uses BDSM, S&M, manipulation, sex, lies, videotape (ha), abuse of power, past trauma, and complete aberrant carnal degradation. But that's ok, I read Allison's work BECAUSE of the complete aberrant carnal degradation. The characters in her book are like a horrible car wreck. You know you shouldn't look, it feels bad to look, but you can't help BUT look!

Yeah, this is another one of Allison's freaky-deeky, non-stop drama, burning hot sex, WTF!?! situations, and a story you have to read to believe.

Format: Paperback
Milan Walden is back and now she is running the Pure Paradise day spa. The day spa offers the regular menu of services like facials and massages. But it also offers more fantasy driven services that takes care of the more erotic needs of its clients. Milan couldn't be happier with the success of the spa and also the steady flow of women and men to satisfy her own sexual needs. Milan gets sidetracked when she becomes attracted to a sexy former football player name Hilton Dorsey. Milan knows that they share a mutual attraction for each other but she just can't seem to break this invisible barrier that separates them. Meanwhile, Milan's financial backer Maxwell is feeling neglected due to Milan's pursuit of Hilton and the increasing popularity of the spa. Will Milan be able to keep everything together or will it all blow up in her face?

Pure Paradise is a good sequel to A Bona Fide Gold Digger by Allison Hobbs. Hobbs once again brought us a scintillating story filled with her signature erotic touch. Readers are given an up close and personal look into how Milan transformed Pure Paradise into a money making machine. You actually see the growth in Milan as a person between the first book and this one. This story is full of dangerous liaisons, twisted fantasies and humorous drama that will keep you glued to the pages. There's also a nice love story type element to this novel that made it all the more enjoyable. This is a sequel but you don't have to read the first book in order to read this one. Pure Paradise is a sexy, seductive novel that will have you begging for more from Allison Hobbs.
