Tease by Immodesty Blaize
I have to begin by saying that this isn't the usual type of novel i'd go for, but there was alot of publicity surrounding this, that i just had to read it!
This is the first novel from the famous Burlesque showgirl, Immodesty Blaize, and already i can't wait to get my hands on her next novel.
Although written about a great Burlesque dancer named Tiger Starr, i can't help but feel that this book is loosley based around the experiences of Immodesty hersef - and if i'm right in thinking this, then she lives an absolutely fascinating life.
This book not only goes in depth about each character and their personalities, but takes you behind the scenes in the world of burlesque and the highs and lows encountered in getting each performance inch perfect.
Tiger Starr is a renowned burlesque dancer and the 'best of the best' at what she does. She yearns for the day when she can conquer America and show them that she has what it takes to make it big there too, although there are many complications along the way. Tiger holds a dark secret which is about to be leaked, but who could it be trying to destroy her like this?
There will be laughter, maybe a few tears and certainly gasps of surprise as you read deeper into this tale of mystery and success, with the biggest gasp of all coming towards the end!!
I really hope that you enjoy reading this book too if it sounds like your cup of tea - please leave a comment and give me your opinion too, thanks!
