Allegra Jackson: Sex, Booze and Designer Shoes, by Debut Novelist Amelia Benjamin
Allegra Jackson: Sex, Booze and Designer Shoes, by Amelia Benjamin (300 pages), is an offbeat erotic romance about a successful young businesswoman whose life is turned upside down when her employer offers her riches beyond her wildest dreams in exchange for granting an unthinkable request.
Allegra Jackson is living high. She’s a successful head hunter for a London modelling agency and at the top of her game in all respects. Now, with the help of her sidekick Oliver, she’s joined the Los Angeles branch of Valentina Blackheart Models to show them how it’s done.
Allegra has a queen-sized appetite for sex, champagne and more sex, and she has no trouble getting what she wants, even though her desires can land her in hot water.
LA itself is a bit of a cultural shock, but Allegra enters new foreign territory when she falls hard for all-American bachelor and real estate mogul Sebastian Beaumont. Life becomes even more confusing when her friend and employer Valentina Blackheart—Allegra’s fifty-something, supremely well preserved double—makes a startling proposition.
Will Allegra accept Valentina’s offer for the sake of financial security, even if it means abandoning her wild lifestyle?
Blue Ribbon Rating–5: “A divinely sumptuous treat of the senses. I am looking forward to reading more from Amelia Benjamin, whose work is a blend of non-stop drama accentuated by some very hot sex scenes. You won’t want to miss this spicy tale!” Read more …

“I loved how confident and uninhibited Allegra turned out to be. I loved her go get ’em attitude, and her ability to take charge in most situations she was in. ‘Sex, Lies and Designer Shoes’ is a great tagline for this book, as it contained all of that and more. The sex scenes were great, and there were a lot of them.”

Says Benjamin, “I have always been fascinated by strong, powerful women. There is something quite inspiring about a determined, independent lady who knows what she wants and where she wants to be. I set out to write a fun, romantic book that would appeal to people of all legal ages; hopefully I have achieved that. The other characters are also close to my heart–Oliver especially. I take Allegra to L.A. to clean up a dysfunctional office where more troubles seem to find her. I think readers will be surprised at Allegra. She seems very superficial to begin with, but give her time.”
