Choices by Galia Ryan

Anna is an intelligent, self-motivated, goal-oriented woman who finds herself in a slight financial pinch. She has a good job as a senior lending specialist and makes decent money, but when the economy takes a slump she finds that her paychecks just aren’t going as far as they use to. She decides to take on a second job. The job search draws her into an escort agency. She is weary at first, but quickly finds that she enjoys taking on the role of “Chloe”, her sexy alter-ego. She thinks she has things under control until she meets the dominating Adam.

Adam is a sexy, demanding, intense lover. He treats Anna like she is his sex slave. At first she doesn’t know if she likes it, but soon is driven to be with him whenever he calls for her. Adam introduces Anna to a side of herself she didn’t know existed. He humiliates her, he gives her to others, he demands she not get any pleasure from him only gives it to him. And she likes it! Finds herself yearning for him.

Then she meets Jake. The boy next door….literally. She falls for him, but can’t be honest with him about her job. Her decision to quit the agency for him is met with disapproval from the agency mistress, Stephanie, and the ever demanding Adam (who has against all his wishes fallen for Anna, but won’t let her know). Anna is given the ultimate choice: leave the agency and have a “normal” life with Jake, or follow her heart (and her desires) and go with Adam….

This book is filled with the kind of intense sexual experiences you would only wish to have in your fantasies. Not only that but it puts into perspective just how far we can be willing to go for money and for love. We are never willing to admit to ourselves just how far we want to go to please our partners. This book makes you think about what it would be like to actually follow that kinky side of yourself and put sexual satisfaction before all else.

I truly enjoyed reading Choices. Galia Ryan did an excellent job keep you turned on right to the last page. 

**I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Anna is broke. Really broke. Credit cards maxed out. Store cards, too. She can’t make her repayments and there’s nowhere to turn. 

Educated, intelligent, and—until recently—upwardly mobile, Anna is forced to make a choice. Sink or swim. And swimming means finding a part-time job to complement her full-time career. One that would pay enough to get her head above water. Except that part-time jobs don’t pay. Usually. 

Drawn into the sordid world of private escorts, Anna discovers there is little she won’t do for money, lots and lots of money. She even starts to enjoy the sex. Until she meets an unusually seductive client who introduces her to the world of Dominance and submission. Then everything changes.

CHOICES is Book 1 of the Luxuria Trilogy.
Convent educated from the age of four, Galia Ryan was brought up not to question. Perhaps because of this, she has always been fascinated by all things esoteric and ‘outside the square.’ Originally from Sussex, England and now living in New Zealand with her soul-mate husband and grown-up family, Galia tries to find time between her passions for writing and reading for her other love—travel. There is always a growing list of must-see places. CHOICES is her first novel, and the first of a trilogy. SECRETS and LIES will be published by Fanny Press in 2013. You can find Galia on the Web at
