REVIEW: Cate Ellink’s ‘Lana’



Secret Confessions: Sydney Housewives – Lana
Cate Ellink

Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?

Lana lives her life by her own rules – and she has very few. What she wants, she goes for, and she very rarely fails. So when a young, handsome waiter at her favourite restaurant catches her eye, she has no hesitation in asking him to escort her home.

But one night of passion opens up exciting new possibilities, and a chance for Lana to enact one of her deepest, most illicit fantasies.

What We Thought:

Cate Ellink has a way of writing absolutely smoking hot sex whilst still incorporating sensuality and the exploration and development of relationships–Lana’s story is no different.

Interestingly, for such a short story (Lana forms part two of the Escape Publishing Secret Confessions: Sydney Housewives series) the story and indeed plot is in no way rushed rather it offers a steady progressive pace.

Lana is an interesting character, not without her faults, who though seemingly a superficial man-eater on the surface does begin to show some depth toward the end. An interesting paradox of a character though–I’m still not sure if I love her or hate her. Full credit to Cate on achieving such complex characterisation. What I do know is that I would like to see more from Cate with regard to Lana’s and Tom’s characters.

Fantastic read and would highly recommend.
