Review Tour: Allegra Jackson Sex, Booze and Designer Shoes




Allegra Jackson
Sex, Booze and Designer Shoes
By: Amelia Benjamin
Released June 1st, 2013
Blurb   
Allegra Jackson is living high. She’s a successful head hunter for a London modelling agency and at the top of her game in all respects. Now, with the help of her sidekick Oliver, she’s joined the Los Angeles branch of Valentina Blackheart Models to show them how it’s done. Allegra has a queen-sized appetite for sex, champagne and more sex, and she has no trouble getting what she wants, even though her desires can land her in hot water. LA itself is a bit of a cultural shock, but Allegra enters new foreign territory when she falls hard for all-American bachelor and real estate mogul Christian Beaumont. Life becomes even more confusing when her friend and employer Valentina Blackheart—Allegra’s fifty-something, supremely well preserved double—makes a startling proposition. Will Allegra accept Valentina’s offer for the sake of financial security, even if it means abandoning her wild lifestyle?

Review Rating: 3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: We're kinda doing the genre blending here. One part chick lit, a few parts erotic, and full part hilarious. You just gotta love a heroine that's a bit wild and crazy. Uncensored. Oh yeah, that's exactly what's going on here. 

Allergra's got the life- and she's sure living it. Sex, fun, and...I did mention crazy, right?

I have to admit, a lot of times the narrative was just too much. I love the voice and style, but really  wanted more action and dialogue. Still, I had a blast following along in Allergra's head. Sure brought on a few giggle fits. I felt like my kiddo with the uncontrollable laughing at times.  It's got some wit, great banter and a plot that wasn't too predictable.
