Meet Miranda. She is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky single girl who just happens to be a dominatrix with a dungeon in her flat where she services clients with flogging and extreme correction and (if she's lucky) gets the occasional slave to pay her for the honour of doing her vacuuming.

The chapters are the perfect time for my commute and had me giggling all the way to work. Miranda's voice is that perfect blend of sultry & gravelly and when combined with her sarcasm and levity, I could listen for hours.

Geared towards Australia, so SUPA and other financial plans gave me no insight. Several characters were getting significant help from their parents (really??) and one character was a billionaire. Not relatable to someone making it on her own from foster care (actually, i found it really annoying) So putting aside the financial advice, what about the story arc? rose tinted and tedious. Everyone was "gorgeous". There's none of the true grit and peril that throws all plans out the window. The billionaire's mother gets cancer and he doesn't do anything to get her the best treatment?! He just navel gazed in his self absorbed narcissism. this book wanted to be financial advice wrapped in a story... it was not remotely satisfying on either front. The only thing I could relate to was their age group.
