This is a fun read and a page-turner for sure. It is about 4 women in the upper crust of NY being fabulous in their Jimmy Choos. I won’t give more away than that. Just read it. It has the right amount of sex, titillation and cheating to match up with a healthy dose of romance, love and fantasy. These 4 women are smart, flawed and sexy and the writing keeps your brain awake and wanting more. This is not heavy literature, but it is a damn fun read. I read the first book in the Shades of Grey series but I found myself flipping forward in the hopes of something that might really turn me on (yeah I said it). What was that writing? I couldn’t read beyond book one of Fifty Shades of Grey but One Flight Up held me. Plus, the added bonus here, that’s never mentioned (not even on the back cover): all four ladies are women of color. What a treat! How great to see this side of us. Go Susan Fales-Hill!!! Thank goodness you are writing. Now let’s turn this into a movie could we please!?!
So, I mentioned in my last vlog that I was reading Bel Canto. Well, I have finished the wonderful book and I urge you to pick it up if you haven’t already.
Here are some of my favorite lines from the book to entice you:
“Perfect takes a longer time.” p. 168
“A kiss in so much loneliness was like a hand pulling you up out of the water, scooping you up from a place of drowning and into the reckless abundance of air.” p. 207
“Love was an action. It came to you, it was not a choice.” p. 271
