Book Blurb:
Blaire Reese is a whore. But not just any whore... a Super Whore, one trained by the CIA in the art of Seduction and Sexual Manipulation, to be used as a weapon in the war against terror.

Blaire has been trained to seduce those suspected of terrorist activity, to get close to them, and to learn their secrets. Even though the government has spent millions to train her and others like her for this specialized form of intelligence gathering, many at the CIA greet Blaire and her peers with skepticism and derision. Soon, Blaire is wondering if she's made the wrong decision to use her unique set of skills for a government which seems to dismiss her as nothing more than a cheap tramp.

That is, until she receives her first assignment. Ranjim Sayeed is young, good-looking, highly educated, and suspected of funding Al Qaeda to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. But he is also secretive and closely guarded. The CIA taps Blaire to seduce Ranjim, and discover the ins-and-outs of his terrorist organization.

But Ranjim is a more difficult target than he first appears. He too is a skilled seducer, and practiced in the art of manipulation. Before long, Blaire is no longer sure what to believe - is Ranjim really a terrorist? Or is he an unwitting pawn being used by someone who is much more dangerous? What dark secrets is he hiding? And will Blaire be able to survive their discovery?

Among all the mind games, deceit, and manipulation, lies a truth more shocking and horrifying than anyone at the CIA could imagine. A truth no regular spy could uncover. Blaire may be untested and inexperienced, but she is now the only thing standing between the United States and an attack which could bring the country to its knees.

When the key to the country's survival lies hidden in the heart of a terrorist, only love can bring it to light and save the lives of untold innocent people. Blaire may be a Hooker Spy, but in its darkest hour, can she also be the United States' greatest hope?

Book 2 of the Cathouse Series is a shocking, entertaining, and sexually-fueled spy thriller unlike any readers have ever before experienced. Discover the twists that occur after the events of A Patriotic Whore, and what it really takes be a Hooker Spy.


Reviewers Note: A Hooker Spy is an Adult, Erotic Thriller and the second book in The Cathouse Series by Matthew Kadish. I read this as a beta eARC reviewer.

The Review: 

I was lucky enough, (ok, there might have been some begging involved), to get in on the beta read for this book after having read the first one and liking it so much. I have to thank Matt Kadish for giving me a chance and allowing me to gush, grumble and gabble as I voiced my opinion and drooled over some hot DIVA love! I had a fantastic time with this book and trust me when I say, this series is well worth the price of admission... and then some!

A Hooker Spy picks up right where book one, A Patriotic Whore, leaves off, starting with an unbelievably hysterical dream sequence that left me lol’ing and ready to face whatever crazy ride I was about to embark on.

The Story...
Blaire and the rest of the DIVA’s from the Cathouse are set up in the CIA’s compound ready to head out on their super secret hooker spy missions but because the DIVA program is new, the CIA hasn’t yet sussed out how to best utilize this groups specialized talents, going so far as to think of them as jokes. Other than sparklizing their work space and twiddling their thumbs or mastering Angry Birds, the DIVA’s don’t have much to do, but this is a randy crowd so there’s always excitement in the air. The first couple of chapters lets us get a feel for their new environment, the new characters introduced and the roles they will soon play.

And then the hooker call bell is rung... 

Soon the fabulous thirty get their footing and are deployed on missions, including Blaire who is sent out after proving to the head honchos in charge how invaluable her specialized brand of services could be. She’s pointed in the direction of Ranjim Sayeed, whose charity organization is suspected of funding terrorist activities. 

What Blaire plunges into (other than Ranjim’s sexy underwear) is a dangerous, epicurean adventure that is so intense, it will keep you mesmerized and completely entrenched in this read from beginning to end. 

This story has a book-load of substance! There’s no fluff, no arbitrary scenes. Everything is well thought out and calculated making for a most interesting read! This story is thrilling, exciting, electrifying and.... dark. Dark, oh so very DARK in some places as Blaire attempts to infiltrate the terrorist organization and prove her faux loyalty to these world class psychos! And I do mean PSYCHOS! *shudders* I seriously wanted to run screaming from Daddy "scares-the-shit-out-of-me" Sayeed! cuz that cat was the headmaster (like higher than Dumbledore) of “Monstrous Mansion”. He and his twisted butler were SCAR-EEEEE! And naughty and.. ok, so I got a little tingle at one point, but the rest of the time I was all like, “No! No nononononono! Run Blaire! He and his handy butler are both certifiable and you're gonna find yourself chained in the basement!” No, seriously D:

This book has a slightly different, heavier tone and theme than the insane antics of book one. Whereas book one was full of humor, was character driven with lots of exposition, this book is more serious and plot/story driven, yet it still held the charm of Blaire’s unique personality and wit. There are twists and turns a-plenty and we get to see Blaire using her knowledge, her intelligence and her training in action and I completely LOVED every minute of it.

I won't lie. Blaire is the star of this show, even though there are plenty of hot DIVA’s to choose from. But I’ve developed quite the girl crush on her. She’s the ultimate female heroine. She’s tough, she makes sacrifices, she knows how to play the game and she’s real. Everything about her is right. 

This was a perfect second book in this series. It has a little something for everyone and for those of you who didn’t like the “twitterspeak” in the first book, its been cut down and refined some. The author did an incredible job with character growth, pushing the overall plot further along and giving us an amazing, sometimes chilling, always entertaining adventure and its one I will enjoy reading time and again.

The Wrap Up: 
I enjoyed A Patriotic Whore, but I was blown away by A Hooker Spy and I’m so glad I stalked wormed asked politely, my way into the beta. I haven’t had this much fun with a series in a long while. Some questions are answered but a lot of new ones are posed. And I'm excited to say that book three, A Professional Bitch, (don’t you just love those titles?) is out so you won't have to sweat over the cliffy in this one.
