The stakes are high for Miri on the French Riviera…
Continues events from book 1 (free on KU or .99 on Amazon)
Secrecy has always been Miranda Stewart’s ally in her guise as “Elise,” high-class escort to those who can afford her. Secrecy has kept her safe. Secure.
But no longer. Her secret has seeped out—someone somewhere has found out who Miri is in real life and that her father, the Earl of Dunbar, is a political heavyweight.
Fearful of being blackmailed for the money she’s worked hard to earn over a decade, Miri hires a private detective to try to trace the mysterious caller. While he investigates, Miri jets off to the French Riviera for her latest hook-up in Monte Carlo. After all, fun and sex are what Miri does best.
On her flight out to meet her client, Phillipe, Miri meets a striking woman, Cara, who rivals her own seduction techniques. Rule number one: what happens on the plane stays on the plane… Right? Who is this intriguing woman that suddenly drops herself into Miri’s lap?
Fly to the French Riviera, where Miri enjoys exotic and erotic encounters driving the mountain roads of La Corniche high above Monaco, betting on red at the Monte Carlo Casino, and mixing with Hollywood’s elite at the Cannes Film Festival.
Can she still walk the thin line between secrecy and discovery?
Features adult language and material: shameless, steamy, and sensual MF, MFF, and FF erotic scenes.

As a follow-up to the Paris Hook-up -I was intrigued and happy to continue this erotica and mystery. This is how a short story is done - there was enough information for me to understand what was happening and the mystery was easy enough that I was intrigued with fewer pages.
The sex was spicy as expected but I cannot wait for the netbook to find out what is going to happen next
we found out more background information from all the characters. I love the change of location for each book.
Loved this whole thing
Picking up right on the high heels of The Paris Hook-Up, Miri hires a private investigator to look into the anonymous texts threatening to reveal her secret life as Elise, an expensive escort to the rich. Along the way, Miri jets across France, stopping for an overnight romp with the flirtatious Cara before meeting her client, Phillipe, in Monte Carlo on her way to the Cannes Film Festival for a rendezvous with Owen, a friend she made in Book 1.
After setting up the basics in the opening salvo to The Seductive Escort series, Tierney Moore is able to more fully develop and flesh out Miri and her balancing act as a private flight stewardess and escort. Although Miri is pretty quick to blur the lines between the two, frequently mixing business with pleasure, thus saving Moore from having to write more than a chapter or two without some sexy and risqué hijinks.
Now that the threat of Miri's anonymous blackmailer has been revealed, it allows for the stakes to be raised considerably, as well, as the two are drawn closer together. The only question remaining is why Miri's blackmailer is after her and what links them, and if the texter has some link to Miri's past life. Prior to becoming an elite call girl, Miri was subjected to grooming and abuse by her wealthy father - a subject Moore explores with sufficient detail but not so much to overshadow The Monte Carlo Hook-Up's more enjoyable aspects. Miri's background is certainly sad, but she's come through it with a heightened sense of self-worth and plenty of agency.
Miri knows what she wants and confidently goes after it, whether its answers about her stalker, sex in secret casino backrooms with debonaire company, or enough money to retire in luxury. The fact that all of these elements are fundamentally intertwined makes for thicker bit of erotic escapism, and gives this slim novella a bit more heft than expected.
This is a captivating read that often reads like a stream of consciousness so you definitely feel the emotional whirlwind of the main character's life. Lots of intriguing characters and a constant shifting scene which keeps the reader engaged. I already can't wait for the third in the series!
