"Hypnotically romantic…this book reads like a sensual dream and I didn't want to wake up." - Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author
Escort, a sexy new contemporary romance standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren is now LIVE!
There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.
I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I'm getting lucky. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.
1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.
2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.
3) Except that . . . she's a virgin.
I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.
Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.
But once I realize one night with her won't be enough, I'm the one who's screwed.
There was something about this book. A feeling as you were reading it that fully involved you in the story, a feeling that it was a little darker than it seemed at first. I think it is in the settings and the way they are described, and the characters and their backstories.
That said, I really enjoyed this title. A lot. It was different, and it evoked different feelings than I usually have when I am reading a romance. I know, I keep saying this...and I am not describing it in a way that does it any justice.
Beatrix "Bea" and Hugo meet when she hires him as an escort for the evening. Her reason? She wants to lose her virginity. But, you soon find out the reason she is a virgin, and the reason she feels she needs to no longer be one are not simple, and you are intrigued.
Hugo is definitely intrigued. And not quite sure what to do with the attraction he feels to the young virgin who hired him. His struggle to be who he is, and to still deal with the feelings she evokes in him is interesting, and it keeps you turning the pages of the book.
I am not sure what else I can say about this one without spoiling it, so I will leave it at this...this book was not what I was expecting. And, I enjoyed it.
I recommend this title.
