By day, Judith Rashleigh is a put-upon assistant at a prestigious London art house. By night, she's a hostess at one of the capital's notorious champagne bars. Desperate to make something of herself, Judith knows she has to play the game. She's transformed her accent and taught herself about wine and the correct use of a dessert fork, not to mention the art of discretion. She's learned to be a good girl. But when Judith is fired for uncovering a dark secret at the heart of the art world--and her honest efforts at a better life are destroyed--she turns to a long-neglected friend. A friend who kept her chin up and back straight through every slight: Rage.

Like and Unlike Fifty Shades
submitted by sVfGI7Glt2pz7GZgVB90 on August 4, 2020, 11:29pm
A slightly dirty thriller there are some graphic sex scenes in it but the plot is fantastic.
The hero Judith works in an arrogant auction house she doesn't fit ... she discovers hostessing persuading slightly creepy elderly man to buy bottles of champagne in a Mayfair bar. She's invited to the South of France and then becomes embroiled in insider trading art fraud.
It's filthy in part, but unlike Fifty Shades, there's an actual plot and it's a lot of fun.
