SHARKS IN THE CITY by Garry J. Peterson
LIVE THE LIFE YOU IMAGINED
SHARKS IN THE CITY is an erotic romance based on the lifestyles and life stories of five fascinating and successful San Francisco women and how they interact with the Sharks, or ‘men behaving badly.’ Much of this tale is based on actual events, which makes it even more tantalizing. It is lively, seductive, and even has a thriller element that will keep your interest and imagination spiked. The relationships are intense and the explicit sex is HOT!
“The concept of toxic masculinity is at the core of the author’s ‘men behaving badly’ Sharks, and accurately describes man’s need to aggressively compete and dominate others, especially women, and maintain complete control over their relationships. Issues of domination and devaluation of women are complicated, but Garry provides happily-ever-after solutions that are awesomely simple. This is cutting edge.” – Mimi Rainey
“I found this novel to be engaging, playful, evocative, and well-written. I cannot stop reading it to see what the next adventure will be for this fascinating group of young, modern adults. The erotic, complex blend of sensuous experiences made it riveting. My true test, which this book passed, is, ‘Does it pop into my mind later out of the blue?’” – Susie Churn
“SHARKS is written from a male point of view, and it is an exciting portrayal of life in the fast-paced Silicon Valley and an accurate depiction of what working women are faced with today. Whether it is business intimidation, social media lies and deceit, or just successful women trying to get ahead in a man’s world, it scarily reflects our disruptive times.” – Donna Daly
"I am a dedicated reader of well-written, erotic romance novels. Fifty Shades of Grey, one of my favs, was a very good love story. SHARKS IN THE CITY is NOT a love story! It is a provocative, creative, and brutally honest tale of five young, professional, and socially outgoing women, building lives and careers in male-dominated San Francisco in 2021. In addition to dealing with the 'Sharks,' aka 'men behaving badly,' they must navigate social media hurdles, gender bias, and female inequality issues ... constantly. Ladies, this is a one-of-a-kind romance thriller, with great stories, awesome characters, and steamy SEX! I was blown away by the author's keen sense of authenticity." –Bobbi Warren, beta-reader and huge adult-romance fan
