About this title


Amelie is thirty years old, the haute-bourgeoise wife of a distant husband and model mother of two picture-perfect daughters. One evening in a service station on the outskirts of the Bois de Boulogne, David drives into her life. Twenty years her senior, darkly handsome and almost embarrassingly virile, he is a suave filmmaker, a confirmed bachelor, and the perfect match for the perfect affair - but one with a twist. Anything but the conventional lonely wife, Amelie isn't looking for love; but she does find she's hungry for pleasure. Capricious, snobbish, and sometimes deceitful, she brings to the affair the same fastidious care and controlled affection that she brings to her choice of hats. Just what David thought he had in mind - until he falls in love with her.

From the Inside Flap:

Amelie is a sexy, beautiful thirty-year-old haute bourgeoise wife of a distant husband. One evening at a service station on the outskirts of the Bois de Boulogne, she meets David and steps into an erotic and sensuous new life. Twenty years her senior, darkly handsome, and almost embarrassingly virile, he is a suave filmmaker, a confirmed bachelor, and the perfect match for the perfect affair--but one with a twist. Amelie isn't looking for love, but she's hungry for pleasure. Written with cool-headed intensity and sexual heat, Crush is an unforgettable odyssey through the wilds of desire into the badlands of erotic obsession.

"A little book that astonishes, by the fierceness of its outlook, the rawness of its tone. Quirky...and immoral."--Magazine Litteraire

"A play-by-play of a married woman's affair--from first kiss to last groan--leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination."--W

"Lots of explicit sex and atmospherics--from the markets of Marrakech to salad lunches with girlfriends at Cafe Flore--enliven this sexy...series of bedroom escapades."--Publishers Weekly

"Sex in David's apartment, sex on a trip to Marrakech, sex in David's office, sex in David's country estate.... There is, yes, sex, sex, sex--though at times it gets rather alarmingly out of control."--Kirkus Reviews

Cecile de La Baume was born in New York in 1960 and currently lives in Paris. Crush is her first novel.
