These days, we could all use a little trip back in time, before COVID-19, before the internet, before cell phones, when life was simpler...at least in some ways.
This book was written in 1961, a very different time from today. It's what as known as a "bodice-breaker", or an “erotica-romantic novel”, but one far tamer than such books today. It has plenty of passion but is written in '50s style, where there is a lot of sex but it is not explicit, either in language or description.
As for the plot, here's some of what the book jacket says, in typical '60s over-the-top fashion: "Brad Smith’s business gave him special privileges, and he made the most of them. But where do you draw the line? At this peculiar hotel, guests arrived late, stayed even later, and paid a high price for unusual accommodations. And if he were man enough, a guest could meet Janice Westbrook. Brad Smith decided he would win Janice for himself. After all, he was a mattress salesman, with a perfect excuse to make himself cozy around the girl and the hotel. The only thing was, a twisted monster named Whitey was after Janice too. And pursuing Brad was a cute little town woman, Marcella, who figured that anything Janice could do, she could do better!”

Another good escape from Pandemic book.
This is the second novel I have listened to by Matt Harding and, in many ways , it's like the first. ( Young Widow ) So some of this is just a repeat of my review of that book.
This is an old style romance novel with a hard drinking, womanizing man, falling for a hot woman, who happens to be rich.
The male is rather dense and I found myself, a few times, yelling while driving and listening,, "Don 't do that you idiot!
Really pulled me in. This is not great literature by any means, but for a few hours it will make you forget about this crazy world we are in now. Back then, there was no Internet, no cell phones and, of course, no Covid. The good old days when life was simpler but people, through stupidity, ( like today ) managed to get themselves in a lot of trouble. Good escapist novel. I hope Audible releases even more of these because we certainly need "release" from the news of today.
