Book Review! May at the Peacock Ranch by Michele Machado

May at the Peacock Ranch by Michele Machado
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: September 29, 2017
Publisher: Mint Minx Press

With everything to lose and only one thing to wager… 

When May Victoria loses her mother, it's a race to get enough cash together to keep her young siblings out of foster care and in her custody. The odds are stacked against her, but she does hold a high card…

Her virginity.

The Peacock Ranch is a legal brothel on the outskirts of Las Vegas that's skilled in the business of virginity auctions—but whether or not May can survive the week with all but her chastity intact is a gamble she wasn't counting on. 

From the author of Market Street Cinema, May at the Peacock Ranch explores the journey and drive of a girl willing to go all-in with a payoff to readers that's tenfold. 

May at the Peacock Ranch by Michele Machado was a a quick and entertaining read. May is a brave girl who will do anything for her family. Literally anything. There was a little mystery and suspense thrown in, not to mention some steamy moments as well. The story is short, so everything happens and is wrapped up quickly. It was a little predictable and a bit unrealistic a time or two too, but it was still a fun escape all the same. I love the cover!

The ARC of May at the Peacock Ranch by Michele Machado was kindly provided to me by the publisher through Net Galley for review. The opinions are my own.

Michele Machado is a San Francisco born literary pundit with a significant ramen addiction. When not writing review articles or shoveling Japanese noodles down her throat, she enjoys penning fiction with a higher heat factor. In order to balance the serious nature of her "real job" with the more salacious stories she writes, and to avoid uncomfortable conversations with her grandparents, the pen name of Michele Machado was created—and the stock photo in this bio was purchased. Now liberated by a nom de plume and hidden behind a beauty at a typewriter, Michele Machado is excited to share her first two releases.

  1. What a fabulous cover - though I'm not a huge fan of shorter books...

    1. The cover is what pulled me in too. I'm a sucker for a pretty cover. ;-)
