Uptown Thief

Uptown Thief review Ä PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Scort service for New York City's rich and powerful 1 percent is the perfect way to bankroll her business not to mention the perfect cover for robbing corrupt CEOs And when times get even tougher pulling a heist on a mega billionaire will secure the clinic's future and her gorgeous crew's for goodThere's just one problem Marisol didn't anticipate bad news eve. Uptown Thief takes you on a wild ride but not through the countryside you re expecting and that s what makes it greatMarisol is a former sex worker who runs a free clinic for sex workers in Manhattan But the economy is tight and it s sueezing her fundraising so she also runs an escort service on the side Lately she s gotten into the Robin Hood business using her small team of escorts to case the homes of millionaires who engage in sex trafficking in Mexico and robbing them in classic heist fashion She s all set for her last big score that will set the clinic up for good when complications ensue in the form of a traitorous employee and an ex cop turned possible loverIt s a twisty fun read with snappy dialogue and winning characters but what really makes it stand out is what it has to say amid all the breaking and entering and sexual brinksmanship about the sex trade in America It presents it as ideally and non judgmentally a gasp simple transaction between people who want sex and other people who are willing to give it to them for money No girl has sex if she doesn t want to Marisol tells her escorts Tyesha one of them defends her choice of profession with a shrug I work one day a week I pay for grad school and I have a 401k The problem the book argues is with the way the sex trade is treated in America as an illicit immoral practice ceded by default to violent pimps who treat unprotected women like property and make clinics like Marisol s all too necessary This is a point of view you don t get very often in fiction or non fiction and that s what makes this book specialBesides all that it s a refreshing take on the classic heist story with a team of smart beautiful women taking on the roles of George Clooney and his buddies in Ocean s Eleven Also it has lots and lots of sex If you re looking for a fun read that also has something interesting to say you ll love this

Uptown Thief review Ä PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook N dangerous than her curves A seductive ex cop who's too close for comfort and a powerful thug with a score to settle are turning Marisol's precise planning and seductive fail safes into insidious traps Now this beautiful modern day Robin Hood will have to play some lethal wild cards without rules or limits to save those she loves and live to steal another da. This is pretty much what I always hoped entertaining fiction about adult women would be Which illustrates that it can be done Thank god Now we need a lot of it Unlike 95% of books it hits my basic marks such as truly adult heroine Her 20s are well behind her She knows her shit She has her goals Now she s in the midst of successfully running things to meet them within a network of women She s not isolated but surrounded by a variety of others just as she would be IRL They are all ages including a best friend in her 60s and cohorts in their early 20s she s intelligent driven and successfulwithout paying some dumb made up price for it She s not the only one she s not a bitch she s not empty She s not mourning what could have been if she d been traditional no baby or picket fence lust Her life is stressful and challenging to be sure but that s what she has chosen and largely it suits her she s not looking for a man She s complete She likes men And we get some fine ass men in this book along with a variety of losers The men are absolutely entertaining to read They are not there as prizes or rescuers though And not one of those men is better or stronger than our heroine Plus some of them admire and desire her she s got a glorious pair of shoes and a couple of awesome dresses but what to wear is not her main concern or even touched on in most scenes And she often looks frazzled or carries her dry cleaning on the subway like a normal person diversity of race background nationality for example Dominicans vs Puerto Ricans vs Cubans and diversity of orientation which matches what I see around me IRL the financials and organization nonprofit details make sense I ve run businesses so fiction makes me nuts because unrealistic The heroine s organization feels real she s writing grant proposals dealing with city ordinances truly working overtime etc the locations are interesting and don t depend on wealth for excitement Her apartment feels real and dusty and there s no room for a sofa because NYC Cuba feels incredibly real right down to the locals lack of personal space the way everyone s always touching you she absolutely knows what she s doing in bed No man is teaching her bupkis And she has different types of sex casual hookups paid sex buddy sex and making love sex She never fusses about what the man thinks of her sexually or her body the world is unfair to women because sexism and misogyny but nobody expects a man to help them or bail them out of this They are responsible for their own damn selves Just because it s an uneual playing field doesn t mean we re not still wholly in the gameOk so what s not for me It s a heist book which is not my fave Some of the men feel one sided or too convenient The love interest in particular is maybe too handy and perfect in most ways Also I think he needed to grovel a bit if only for my delightThere s a lot of messaging the author is trying to get across gentrification sucks Cuba is better than America in some ways we need universal healthcare paid sex work can be work with skill and dignity it can take many tries to exit an abusive situation being a rich men s non working partner is boring AF etc I didn t mind the messaging in part because I agree with all of it But it s a load for a book to carry and occasionally felt a bit preachyteachyOverall though we need books like this Tons of them Then maybe this won t have to carry so much weight by itself
