Book: Cult of Beauty: The Secret Life of a Supermodel
Author: K.M. Dylan
Supermodel Katie Wolfer takes a call from her stepfather as she steps off the Dior runway in Paris: her mother has died. As she struggles to move forward with her now-parentless life, two men loom large for Katie—Gavin Poole, a hot, emerging fashion designer with an inability to commit, and her charismatic, wealthy French stepfather, Daniel de Goncourt. Katie becomes entangled with both of them, exploring her darkest sexual desires amidst a lavish, decadent lifestyle.
Deeply erotic, thoughtful, and thrilling, this fashion model’s fictionalized memoir is sure to arouse and intrigue you.
Okay so my girl who is doing this blog with me didn’t care much for the book and so I was a little apprehensive when I finally got a chance to start it. I will have to say that yes this book may not be for everyone, I did like it. It was a good hot read that I was in need for and I do believe that is a HUGE reason as to why someone will or will not like your book. You have to be in the mood for that ‘type’ of book. There are a few books that I didn’t care for but others absolutely LOVED and well when it all comes down to it probably was because I was in the mood for something different then what that book was about. Anywho… with that being said here is what I thought of the book.
I started it and saw the forward and decided I wanted to know more about the author first before I got into it. It was set up as if the author was a model and I wanted to check it out and see if that was true or if it was just part of the book. So like I said I went to her Website and clicked on her about section and got so excited!
I am a former model. I am half French, half American and live in NYC. I love art, fashion, beauty and the erotic. I love to travel and especially the beach. Katie’s erotic adventures in the Cult of Beauty novels are loosely based on my own crazy experiences in life… The key word is “loosely!”
My taste as a reader and a writer is toward decadent erotica—women with a streak of perversity who enjoy sex for it’s own sake, who like to be dirty, and will get a little kinky—whether it be with other women, multiple partners or exploring S&M.
There is a little bit of everything in this book and maybe that is what I liked about it. There is crazy sex, drugs and some taboo things that go on.
It is not a long book so for me it was a quick read, with that you will see that it is very fast paced which I enjoyed because there was never a dull moment. While reading I wanted to believe that this is how it is for models because well in all fairness, in movies they are portrayed a lot in the way that it is written.
It would be awesome to hear some of her actual stories with no fiction mixed in because to be honest I wanted to believe that this was all about her and what she has been through. 🙂
There were so many different scenarios that were played out and all though there were a few spots that I felt that she could have gone more into the story because well I wanted to know more, like with Ryan, overall I did enjoy the whole story. I will have to say that ending left me wondering what the hell was going to happen. haha I was at a loss and didn’t know what to think, it was a bit of a cliffhanger.
This book is not for everyone and I understand that, there is SO much that goes on sex wise so if you are all about a hot steamy, sex filled book this is absolutely for you!
Cult of Beauty is about a supermodel who gets the call that her mother has passed while shes finishing a fashion show in Paris. This pushes her into an erotic journey that includes women, her stepfather, college boys, drugs and extravagance. It honestly was hard for me to get into. I think the only thing that kept me reading was the hot sex! lol But overall the whole vibe of it was very strange for me. She lusted after her stepfather, wore her dead mothers pearl thong, did drugs with her stepfather, and had sex with anyone around including her step sister. It was just all over the place. I feel like there was a lack of connection to her for me. She had a complete lack of any emotion to losing her mom, although they were not close over the past few years. The ending kind of abruptly stopped and was sad as well. Sounds like there might be a sequel, but I’m not sure if I would read it. So besides the “hotness” of the sex, this book didnt draw me in like I wished it would.
