Review: Monsieur by Emma Becker

From their initial online encounter, through a shared appreciation of erotic literature, to the highly explicit and shocking story of their brief relationship, Emma Becker charts the labyrinths of lust of Ellie and 'Monsieur', set against the murky landscape of Facebook, text messages and the Pigalle hotel room in which they meet every Tuesday morning.

Why do we do things we know are wrong? Why do May-to-December romances invariably go wrong? Why does the allure of forbidden sex cloud our judgments? Emma Becker doesn't come up with all the answers, but provides a fascinating and poignant tale, which will turn Monsieur into the new Lolita.

Monsieur is a story about Ellie, a twenty year old and living in Paris, and her pursue of Monsieur, a married surgeon approaching middle age. Follow this reverse Lolita story as it starts out as a shared love of erotica novels that evolves into an affair. Spanning over several months their intense sexual adventures consists of random phone calls several, Facebook and meetings in a hotel on Tuesday mornings. As their brief affair comes to its conclusion, how will Ellie survive its devastating aftermath?

Wow, just wow! Author Emma Becker has written a very intense, dark piece of literature in Monsieur. This is an all-out memoir of sexual lust and the dark side of a young woman’s obsession as she spirals out of control. Characters are honest and raw – their depravity deliciously perverse. The language and the sex is crude but only adds a flavor which is normally missing from good erotica. This is necessary read if your tastes of erotica fall more in the “Story of O” genre.

I was provided a copy of this book for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.
