When I started this one, my interest peaked right away. Who is the mysterious Lady Upstairs who employs Jo and company?! How do they know what these men they are blackmailing are doing? So many questions, so little time with less than 300 pages in the book.
Needless to say I lost interest fast while reading. I liked the revenge aspect, but I didn’t like the way Jo and company were using other women in their blackmailing scheme. You want to ruin these powerful men that are doing these awful things, but you’re also willing to use other women to get the job done? There has to be a better way to get it done!
Needless to say this one was not for me, but it may be for you. I would never tell you not to read a book, but I would tell you to proceed with caution.
Thank you to G.P. Putnam and Author Halley Sutton for the #gifted copy. This one published 11/17 so it’s available now!

Jo’s job is blackmailing the most lecherous men in Los Angeles–handsy Hollywood producers, adulterous actors, corrupt cops. Sure, she likes the money she’s making, which comes in handy for the debt she is paying off, but it’s also a chance to take back power for the women of the city. Eager to prove herself to her coworker Lou and their enigmatic boss, known only as the Lady Upstairs, Jo takes on bigger and riskier jobs.
When one of her targets is murdered, both the Lady Upstairs and the LAPD have Jo in their sights. Desperate to escape the consequences of her failed job, she decides to take on just one more sting–bringing down a rising political star. It’s her biggest con yet–and she will do it behind the Lady’s back, freeing both herself and Lou. But Jo soon learns that Lou and the Lady have secrets of their own, and that no woman is safe when there is a life-changing payout on the line.
