Livia Ellis is blond with blue eyes and comments that she only runs if a gun-wielding maniac is chasing her. She is a lover of yoga and a bit of a shoe hound and says she may have had issues passing up handbags. Currently, she is trying to learn to play the Irish harp. She enjoys both theater and concerts, as well as reading fantasy and science fiction. She admits she adores Star Trek and has a picture of herself (dressed as a nun) and the late Patrick Swayze (dressed as a medieval warrior) in a frame (yes – she did cry when he died).
Ellis describes herself as a perpetual student with a vivid imagination although she admits that she is only sexually adventurous on paper. She says she never knows what to say when people end a conversation with ‘god bless.’ Ellis occasionally plays the lottery – but generally only when she’s feeling really poor. She loves to travel and speaks French fluently. She is always happy to find readers who enjoy what she writes.

This is volume three of the Memoirs of a Gigolo serial and it's obvious that I've been enjoying it so far...because I've gotten this far. With 4 stories (vol 1-3 and the Halloween special) under my belt I can honestly say, I think I'll be around for the long haul of Memoirs of a Gigolo. Each volume seems to get better and better.
I didn't think a series of erotic shorts could keep me entertained for very long, but Ellis' writing has proven me wrong. The way this story is written continues to solidify my opinion that this is more of a literary erotica than raunchy smut. There's nothing wrong with smut either, but I continue to be drawn in to the unfolding plot, the complexities of the characters, and how the sexual episodes don't feel forced, rushed, or unoriginal.
I also have to point out that I'm very eager to continue on to Volume Four. The way each of these installments ends somehow doesn't bother me. They are somewhat cliffhanger endings, but since this is a serial, that's the only natural way to "wrap it up." Each book is a series of chapters that'll fit right after the last one and I guess that's the mark of a great book (when it's complete). It'll keep readers going and going until the book's finished.
