Naked In Mayfair by The Secret Socialite
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Whitefox Publishing 
Publication date: 15th June 2023

Meet Ava, a blonde bombshell and newly divorced banker who leads a glamorous life in Mayfair and is looking for love again. She is passionate and strong, a woman who has it all and wants more, but her professional success and fearlessness are a foil to her vulnerability and inner demons. Outwardly Ava is confident and successful, yet she feels alone in the world. Naked in Mayfair follows Ava's uninhibited sexual odyssey as she is courted by many fascinating men. She loves sex, and her intense sexuality is her expression of a desire to find true love and connection. But whilst Ava has an amusing and pleasurable life, she is damaged inside, and the deep love she yearns for eludes her until finally, she finds purpose and peace in the most unexpected way. Sometimes shocking, often hilarious, always thought-provoking, Naked in Mayfair gives us an illuminating glimpse behind closed doors, in the back of a Bentley and at 30,000 feet. This is a glittering world of privilege and wealth, with extravagant holidays, fine dining and mega yachts. It gives us a unique insight into the secret life of a 21st-century woman's unwavering search for love, meaning, inner peace – and ultimately, self-acceptance.

"If you don’t love yourself first, you’re going to spend all your time running after men who don’t love you either."

I didn't really know what I was going into before starting this but I was so intrigued by the glitz and glamour of the Mayfair setting and the secrecy surrounding the author.

The story follows divorced mum-of-two Ava who works in the finance sector and her quest to find the love of her life. At the beginning, I was worried because I didn't really gel with Ava. Yes, she was beautiful, loved her kids and I did feel for her regarding her relationship with her ex-husband but when it came to few things that she did, especially within her relationships, I didn't agree with her morals.

As we continue to read, learning more about Ava's psyche and what happened to her whilst on holiday as a teen, everything started to make sense. There was a huge character development and I was really rooting for her the more I read.

I will say that there are a lot of sex scenes which I don't mind as long as there is plot and this book definitely has that.

I laughed at parts, I enjoyed the overall story and it is just a fun read but with a deeper story underneath.
