The Seduction Expert by Saya Lopez Ortega


She’s cold, narcissistic, conceited and she has no redeeming qualities. 

She doesn’t care, she’s gifted. 

She doesn’t care, she’s the seduction expert.

Women contact her to take over their love lives. She steps in when they’re lost, she’s supposed to succeed where they failed. She handles their single status, their relationships, their breakups, and very often their partners’ affairs. Her job is a life priority, she spends most of her time at the office or between two flights in business class and the fact of having a sports car that can reach one hundred kilometers in less than six seconds often make her feel like a superheroine in service to women.

Anyway, take her card.

You’ll see, it’s much better than spending holidays in St Barts.


I’m the seduction expert, everyone knows it and my function intrigues. Women want to call on my services and men imagine life by my side. I daunt humankind and very few people dare approach me.

Let’s face it, the main character in this story is in no way shape or form a nice woman.  In fact, she’s a narcissistic, power-hungry, self-obsessed, controlling, b**ch who is fascinating to watch. Her confidence as a multi-millionaire entrepreneur and champion for the feminist cause unveils and extorts cheating husbands and boyfriends to compensate their wives and girlfriends. However, she is challenged when she decides to marry a Beaumont for his money. She didn’t expect the wrath of her nasty future mother-in-law.

The book starts out slow and looks like it was translated badly, but if you can get past the woman’s personality and occasional bad grammar, the story is interesting and picks up speed toward the end apparently resulting in the first of a book series. You will even learn a few lessons about how to get and keep a man if you want to use a few of her less than reputable methods.

I believe in the story and not in the personality of the character or the bad editing (which is not what a reviewer should solely base their review on). With that being said, I enjoyed this surprising book.

Thank you to Saya Lopez Ortega and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.
