Christy's 5 star review!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mia Asher has a way with words. Her writing and ideas are brilliant. After reading Arsen, I became a huge fan. When I heard she had a new book coming out, I jumped at the chance to read it. Though it is nothing like her debut novel, it was still completely mesmerizing and compelling.
Blaire. What can I even say about our little gold digger Blaire. Personally, I think Blaire is misunderstood. There is more to her than meets the eye. I just know it. She grew up in an unideal way. Blaire has never known love.
Many say that love will set you free, but I disagree…
love is a cage, a very painful one;
it’s gilded bars made with yearning, heartache, and unfulfilled dreams.
And the moment I realized that love wasn’t necessary to one’s survival I became free.
No one would have the power to hurt me again. That realization set me free.
It is sheer talent to create these heroines that do terrible things and that on the surface anyone would dislike and make me love them. Blaire did some questionable things. She is nowhere near perfect. She knows it. But I loved her regardless. There was something about her that I just ‘got’.
Now the men. There are two men in this story, but I don’t consider it much of a love triangle. Blaire is a lot of things, but she doesn’t cheat and when she’s with a guy she’s only with him. Honestly, I can’t even tell you which guy I liked more. They are both so intriguing and different! Usually when reading a story with two guys I can fairly easily choose, but this isn’t clean cut. The situation isn’t normal. Nothing about Blaire and her relationships are normal.
First there is Ronan. Ronan is unlike any man she’s ever been with. He’s not rich. He doesn’t live the lifestyle Blaire usually requires. But there is something about Ronan that Blaire is drawn to. As hard as she tries, she can’t help but to fall for him. There is one huge problem with that. It’s not even that the money is the biggest issue. The biggest issue is that Ronan makes her feel. And that is not something Blaire is equipped to handle.
I don’t want to feel anything. I can’t. Feeling is bad. It leaves you vulnerable. And I don’t have time for emotions like guilt or shame. I like money. I like power. I like adoration. I like sex. And I’m good at it.
I loved how upfront Lawrence was with Blaire. He wants her. Enough to pay whatever price she has. And like he says, everyone has a price. He’s rich enough to pay whatever Blaire requires. Seeing how alike Blaire and Lawrence are, he gets her. It’s easy with him. Easy is what she needs.
“We speak the same language. You and me… we’re both cut from the same cloth. We see something we want and we take it. We don’t let emotions get the best of us.”
Easy Virtue is seductive, mesmerizing and addictive. I read this book in one sitting because once I started, there was no way I was going to be able to put it down. To me, that is the biggest sign of an amazing story. Not being able to put it down. This story is well written, bold, risqué, and refreshing. It’s an unforgettable unconventional love story about imperfect characters. It’s a story that made me think, made me feel, and made me crave more. I truly loved this one and I can’t wait to dive into the next one to see what happens with these three!
