About the Author:
My name is Mia Asher.
I'm a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, oh yes…I might be a bit crazy - but who isn't?
I believe in happy endings however I know that not everyone is lucky enough to get one, but such is life. I think fine lines exist to be pushed and possibly crossed.

Review by Michelle:
Damn you Mia Asher! Easy Virtue has done it again. You made me laugh, you made me cry, you frustrated the hell out of me and then I came to the end and I was shocked and stunned and needing more. What's worse, I have a feeling you are sitting back with an evil little smirk on your face loving every minute of the love/hate relationship your readers are having with you and this book as we speak. How many times can you tear us apart while we just smile and take it and beg for more? I have heard that you love an underdog. I can tell that you love to manipulate our hearts and our minds by making us fall for the wrong man despite our best efforts and I think you may be a bit sadistic as well. Admit it, you love to torture us. If you admit it, I may just admit that I love to be tortured by you just as much.
Mia Asher is an enchantress, a masterful storyteller, and an intoxicating weaver of words. I was hanging on each and every word as each simple combination of letters seemed to hold so much, to tell a story of its own, to have so much meaning and resonance. Not only is this author's writing substantial and powerful, but there is no doubt it will give you the feels. These feelings may not be what you were hoping for when sitting down with a romance, but they are true and genuine feelings nonetheless. Feelings that run the gamut of emotion, that can agonize but also amuse, torment and also delight.
How does an author manage to continually write such loveably, wonderfully, addictively detestable female characters and why am I so easily spellbound by these woman who often act in such deplorable and contemptible ways? Blaire is an incredibly complex character. Unapologetic in her actions and motivations, seemingly cold and calculating, you would think she would be a hard one to love, but then we come to find that she is attempting to bury the hurt and betrayal of the past, that she really does have a heart, that she is human, and even that she has an endearing side. This may be a side that she keeps well hidden, but when it's illuminated, it really shines and enamors readers just as completely as the men who are drawn to her.
All of the characters, including both men in the story, are incredibly captivating and alluring. Stop right there, before we go any further, I know what you are thinking and have no fear, there is no cheating when it comes to these two men and there is not even really a love triangle. Instead of a decision that needs to be made between two men and the love for each, it is more of a choice between two completely different paths. These men could not be more different yet they are both immensely appealing in totally different ways. Although there is usually a clear cut right and wrong choice when taking into consideration modern conventions of love, romanticism, and fairytales, Mia Asher once again makes it hard to despise or even dislike the "wrong" man. In fact, you may even find yourself desiring this road for Blaire no matter hard you may try to fight it.
Easy Virtue is not a love story. It is no simple and lighthearted read. It is a raw and in your face, consuming and completely addicting story that will leave your jaw on the floor and you on your knees, pleading for more. One thing I know for sure is that I will be impatiently waiting and doing some major author stalking in anticipation of the continuation of this story.
