She’s the seduction expert.
Women contact her to take over their love lives. She steps in when they’re lost, she’s supposed to succeed where they failed. She handles their single status, their relationships, their breakups, and very often their partners’ affairs. Her job is a life priority, she spends most of her time at the office or between two flights in business class and the fact of having a sports car that can reach one hundred kilometers in less than six seconds often make her feel like a superheroine in service to women.
Anyway, take her card.
You’ll see, it’s much better than spending holidays in St Barts.

The Seduction Expert is modern feminism meets Miranda Priestly and I am here for it!
This was a book that grew on me! At first, I thought the [anti]heroine was very hard to like. She’s cold, distant, and full of herself. She’s after status and absolutely nothing else. But, as the story progresses and you learn more about what she does, how she does it, and why she does it, The Baroness begins to grow on you. Also – can I request to go by The Baroness now? (Hey, Google! Call me Baroness from now on!)
I think the thing I liked the most about this book is the idea that it surrounds a bunch of powerful women. Men are only victims and subcharacters and, so far, this isn’t the story of the hard-hearted woman who softens when she finally finds a man to break down all of her walls.
Not even a little bit. We end the story with The Baroness at an all-out war with what may be the only woman that is more cut throat than she is as well as a last minute business trip to another company.
I’m excited to read the next book in this series. An excellent debut novel from Saya Lopez Ortega!
