Escaping the day by Laila Blake Review

Book Blurb

We read books for a myriad of reasons. Some books, we read to root us in the reality around us, but others we read to take us away, to make us forget about our job, our chores, the bills waiting to be paid.
Similarly, the women in these three stories find ways escape their every-day lives lives, minutes or hours at a time. One seeks refuge in a world full of magic and adventure, another in exciting debauchery just to set a counterpoint to her wholesome family, and yet another peppers her marriage with exciting opportunities for punishment. All of them get what they want, one way or the other.

Escaping the Day is a 11,000 word collection of three erotic stories. It contains mature content and elements of bdsm.

About The Author

Laila Blake, born in 1985 in Cologne/Germany, is a bi-lingual author and translator. She has an MA in Specialized Translating and has worked with several research projects in Applied Linguistics and language acquisition. Teaching English to adults is still paying most of her bills.
Growing up with a love of stories, she started her first epic fantasy story at the age of 13. It didn’t grow past a few chapters and since then, she has gone through a myriad of ideas and beginnings, both in English and German, has learned a lot and lived a lot and dreamed of being a writer.
In 2013, Crimson Romance picked her debut novel for publication and she has been working on new projects ever since. In the meantime, she has also gotten short-stories into several erotic anthologies to be published later this year, and has been working on other projects and ideas.
