Love is selfish...
My name is Blaire.
I'm the bad girl.
The other woman.
The one who never gets the guy in the end.
I'm the gold digger.
The one no one roots for.
The one you love to hate.
I hate myself too...
Everyone has a story. Are you ready for mine?
“Easy Virtue” is the story of Blaire. She didn’t have an easy life and has had a makeover of sorts. She now morphed into a woman some would call a ‘Golddigger’.She meets the wealthy, handsome Lawrence and sees a chance for a new victim (I have to tell it, how it is…). But her heart truly beats for another man, Ronan. What will she decide for in the end – for the money or the love?
This wasn’t an easy read for me. I love, love, LOVE Mia Asher’s writing style and that she can make me grind my molars with her angsty plots. But in “Easy Virtue”, I had serious problems with accepting and respecting the female MC, Blaire. Her decisions were more than questionable and frustrated the hell out of me. But I loved both male MC’s, so there was the balance for Blaire… As for the story itself, I would call it a “sort-of-love-triangle”. Well, I guess that’s in every reader’s own opinion if this is a love-triangle or not. For me, it was. Mia Asher always makes me feel so much with her books, it’s as if I’m an observer for her characters’ lives. It’s as amazing as it is frustrating – because it makes me feel the bad things, too. But in total, everything balanced itself out pretty well.
Why not five stars? Well, I have to admit, that the reason therefore is pretty personal. First, because I was a bit at war with Blaire and second, the ending. I knew going into the book that “Easy Virtue” would end on a cliffhanger. But I was a bit (no, scratch that – pretty badly) annoyed by the fact, that the book was relatively short but ended in such a bad place and without getting any hint as to when the sequel would finally be out. That, I couldn’t accept a hundred percent.
I’ve read “Easy Virtue” already in January 2015.
All in all, I rate “Easy Virtue” with 4,5 stars and can recommend it to all fans of angsty reads and Mia Asher-books. Now, I’m looking forward to the sequel “Sweetest Venom”, which will be released on April 3rd, 2016.
