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.

I’m not sure if Livia Ellis can write a bad installment for Memoirs of a Gigolo. That sounds like I’m too much of a fan, but I’m saying that in an honest unbiased way. Ellis continues to release each volume of Oliver’s memoirs and keeps me wanting more each time.
In this one we get a great glimpse into Oliver’s past and why he is in the financial situation he’s in today. Until now, the reader gets the gist of what happened. In volume four, Oliver opens up about it all. We get to connect with him on a deep emotional level. I feel that, at least for Volume Four, this series is taking (probably a minor) step away from being a moderately erotica based story. The majority of this volume is spent on developing a better understanding of characters like Oliver and Olga, figuring out the relationship between the two of them, between Oliver and his past, between Oliver and his home/family history and what it means to him.
There’s a few interesting twists near the end of this volume that’s really making me want Volume 5 to be released as soon as possible, but I can’t get into that without you all reading these first. All I know is that the start of Volume 5 will be very interesting.
