Lydia Montgomery is a Tramp.
After fleeing a tragic past, Lydia’s determined never to go back to the life she left behind at any price. She lands in Grand Haven, California—a city booming with billion-dollar corporations and tech money—and everything changes.
Armed with the only lesson she learned from her mother, Lydia builds a life of routine, solitude, and success.
Nothing is out of reach when you’re beautiful.
Nearly a decade after her arrival, Lydia's the highest paid escort in the city, and only the most influential people in Grand Haven can get near her. She's a goddess among her clients, and out of reach to everyone else. Lydia's created the perfect illusion, and no one will take it from her again.
Until a misunderstanding lands her in the office of the city’s most eligible bachelor.
Talent Ridge is Grand Haven royalty. Despite running in the same circles as Lydia’s clients, he’s scandal-free and on his way to being the most powerful man in the area.
Their chemistry is undeniable, but a relationship has the potential to destroy everything they’ve worked for.
Especially when Lydia is running from her past, and Talent is running toward a future she can never be a part of.
Beauty and money can’t save them this time.
Are Lydia and Talent willing to give it all up for each other, or will their differences cost too much?
Tramp reminds me of a modern-day Pretty Woman. A rough around the edges, never been kissed, woman of the streets; meets a mega rich, gorgeous city’s most eligible bachelor. Whether you’re brought up as a poor street working woman, or born into old money, everyone has a story. Every person has a truth, and no matter how bad your life is, somebody always has it worse than you do.
Tramp shows us to live life to the fullest. Take chances on life, on people, and on love. Have that extra piece of pie or slice of pizza. Top that sundae with chocolate sauce and sprinkles. Tomorrow isn’t promised, therefore live like it’s your last. Cherish every moment alive and tell your crush that you want them. Talent never relents, he pursues Lydia like she has never experienced before. Once she opens her heart to the possibility of romance, she can no longer deny the rush of feelings that courses through her veins. Talent’s most challenging quest will be to convince Lydia that she no longer needs to lend herself to men. She can depend on him for any and everything. Lydia has never known stability and her biggest hope, is that she finds it in Talent.
I am so thrilled to see Mary Elizabeth back at writing. She has a style that I have yet to see anyone else match, or even come close to. Descriptions so deep, that you can physically see the characters and scenes taking place so vividly within your head. Tramp is a bit different than what she typically writes, and I really enjoyed it. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us soon. Coming up next in the series is Harlot!
Mary Elizabeth was born and raised in Southern California. She is a wife, mother of four beautiful children, and dog tamer to one enthusiastic Pit Bull and a prissy Chihuahua. She's a hairstylist by day but contemporary fiction, new adult author by night.
Mary can often be found finger twirling her hair and chewing on a stick of licorice while writing and rewriting a sentence over and over until it's perfect. She discovered her talent for tale-telling accidentally, but literature is in her chokehold. And she's not letting go until every story is told.
