Summer has (almost) arrived! You know what that means? It’s time to put down the Dostoyevsky and put that dogeared copy of “Siddhartha” back on the shelf — those books are for the damp, frigid winter — and pick up some trashy, sexy, and deeply enjoyable beach reading. Our first recommendation for your summer of pleasurable page turning? “Bought” by Anna David. The novel is a followup to “Party Girl,” and continues to follow the oh-so-exciting life of L.A. magazine writer, Emma Swanson. This time around, she’s writing a story about a high-class call girl and discovers some tricks of the trade in the process. But it’s not all fun and games, as Emma must contend with a moral quandry of her own. Hooked yet? [$14.99, Amazon]
We’re giving away five copies of “Bought” by Anna David, but you have to work if you want it in your beach bag. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, May 22 through Thursday, May 28—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
