When DC Madam Faith Crawley receives a call from former client, Senator William Drummond, it's the answer to her prayers. The money the dirty politician offers her to smear his rival Finn Billings will save Faith's business, her lifestyle, and her girls.Raised in the shadow of a political magnate, Finn Billings has the credentials to get the job done, but he lacks confidence and wonders if politics is truly the life he desires.Using the façade of her front business, a PR firm, Faith turns Finn into a political powerhouse while obtaining the evidence Drummond needs to destroy Finn's political chances. But Faith didn't plan on falling in love with her mark.Now she has the toughest decision ever—give the sleazy senator incriminating photos of Finn to save her business or give up everything for the sake of love.
There is something about this book that sounds so tantalising mischevious. I am excited to read this one!
So what have some of the readers thought about this already?
Goodreads reader says
Ross leads us through scenes of Washington, D.C., from luxury suites and five-star hotel ballrooms to the alley next to a chili joint, the streets of Chinatown, and a rotting railway bridge that leads to nowhere…or maybe to somewhere, after all. Don’t try to cross it in heels!
Ross’ settings, action, and descriptions bring it all to life in a sensory, actually tender, way.
From the beginning, you’ll want to know whether Faith will do Drummond’s bidding or defy him. Either way, the cost is unimaginable.
You’ll be turning the pages faster and faster to find out.
Goodreads reader says
In her debut novel, Dana Ross pulls off challenges that have defeated more seasoned authors. She gives us a heroine who is a hard-boiled Washington D.C. madam and makes the reader pull for her. And then she presents us not with the usual testosterone spewing hero, but an unlikely one -a virtuous, awkward senatorial candidate – and we love him.
Goodreads reader says
Dana Ross is a talented author with the ability to make a story pop off the pages with characters who struggle with their identity or as some would say damaged. The author has an ability to create dialogue that is able to craft a story bringing out the different characters unique voices. The story is from Faith’s point of review. Faith is human but her background has made her protect those she cares about.
Baroness’ Book Trove says
My rating for Full Girlfriend Experience by Dana Ross is five stars. The story didn’t leave my mind, and I was so all in with Faith and the crazy life that she leads. I have never been to Washington D.C., and yet I felt connected to the places that Ms. Ross described, to the point of smelling the wonderful scents of spices to the horrid smell of the filth. This book is Ms. Ross’ first, and it is spectacular. I can’t wait to read her next one.
Some great thoughts there! So, I also have an exclusive excerpt from the book just for you lucky people!
✮ Excerpt ✮
There were three things I could not stand—cheap shoes, bad wine, and the man seated across the table from me.
William Drummond was staring at me like a half starved animal. Maybe his greedy gaze was due to my dress’s plunging neckline, but the man obviously had other things on his mind—complications that involved me. And like the pan-fried calamari appetizer slowly digesting in my belly, sharing company with the man who almost killed one of my girls did not sit well.
Nonetheless, I had problems. I had to at least hear him out.
I lifted my empty champagne flute and motioned for a refill. Drummond obliged. The bubbly was good and dry, one that cost a pretty penny, which the
As Drummond refilled his glass, I remembered how easily he polished off drinks without showing a hint of an altered mind. In addition to the champagne, there was a glass of whisky with melting ice cubes by his plate. Bells in my head rang a warning.
He was slick. Just like that suit. Which was decent, though, probably an Italian label that cost more than my rent. He also sported a rose-gold designer watch—last year’s model—and diamond pavé cufflinks that practically blinded me with their shine. His nails were trimmed and glossy, like he’d had a recent manicure, and his jet-black hair shined like an asphalt lake. His eyes were a forgettable brown, but they revealed intellect—correction, cunning intellect. Drummond lifted his champagne glass and aimed the rim in my direction. “Let’s make a toast. To old times.”
I leaned forward and clinked his glass. “Old times.”
Thank you Caryn for this excerpt from your book!
Until next time xxx
