I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.


Operation Burlesque BBW Romance - Michelle Fox


Ruby loves sequins and sparkles. After her job on Broadway falls through she becomes the seamstress for the Cirque d'Amour. There see finds her libido lit by the magician, Blake Cannon. After one-night Blake disappears and it seems Ruby knew nothing about him and her lack of knowledge gets her in a lot of trouble. Kidnapped and taken to Morocco she has to survive to make it back home but will she be able to escape her captors, find the American embassy, and find a life that includes Blake?


I loved this book. I loved Ruby and the fact that she is not tiny and petite. She is also spunky and does what she must to survive. She thought that Blake never knew she watched his act each night but finds out he was a fascinated by her as she was him. Blake is harder to capture. At times I loved him. At times I disliked him. He never gave Ruby a straight answer until Ruby makes decisions he does not like. Both are strong personalities. Their character development was well done.


The story is full of action and adventure. Some of it over-the-top since Ruby does not have any special training but it gives life to Ruby and I had a real sense of her and her strength, intelligence, and abilities. I had a hard time putting this down so I read it in one sitting. I wanted to know what happened. 


The secondary characters were an eclectic mix--some good, most evil. I loved Lilli, Ruby's friend and the woman who taught Ruby she could succeed anywhere she wanted. Ruby and Lilli are opposites. Their friendship is strong and believable. I'd like to see Lilli get her own story. She sounds fascinating.


This is a good, fun read. I loved the tongue-in-cheek humor of Ruby's thoughts as she goes through the story, occasionally speaking it aloud. It fit Ruby and made me chuckle. I'm looking for more reads from Michelle Fox
