Mr. Paradise by Elmore Leonard

Elmore Leonard is a guilty pleasure. He has the most wicked sense of humor of just about any crime writer today. His characters are totally lacking in moral values, even the "good" guys, yet I can't help cheering them on.

In Mr. Paradise, Kelly is a wealthy Victoria's Secret model. Her roommate, Chloe is an escort--at least she was until she took a well paying job as the girlfriend of Tony Paradiso. Chloe talks Kelly into doing a "modeling" job for Tony but things go seriously wrong.

Leonard has written dozens of best sellers, all of which are hilarious in spite of their morally bankrupt characters.
