Lip Service

Lip Service

  • customer reviews
A sizzling and sensual journey into an erotic world few women dare to enter . . . On the surface, Julia Sterling’s life seems blessed. Married to a renowned psychiatrist and living on Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side, Julia deeply loves her stepson and is forging a career as a journalist.

When a writing job exposes her to the world of phone sex, Julia gets a glimpse into a world that stirs her erotic fantasies but threatens her carefully constructed reality. As she explores her emotional and sexual connections to the men she knows and several she will never meet, she confronts evil, perversity, and her own long-forgotten passions.

Tracing the currents of desire, illusion, and psychological manipulation, Lip Service is an astonishingly vivid journey into one woman’s inner life. At the same time, this electrifying thriller grips the reader as it blurs the lines between fantasy and reality and builds toward a shattering climax.
