Clearly riding on the 50 Shades wave, but with a more literary and quirkily told explict story it has found a fresh niche in this quickly crowding market. Meeting every Tuesday in a hotel in the Pigalle district of Paris, this is the story of Ellie’s sexual awakening at the hands of the 45 year old family friend she calls ‘Monsieur’.
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 judgements? 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 .
