Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.
But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.
Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.
After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?
Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.
When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?
*An erotic, contemporary romance*
*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*
Jace is just your everyday, average male escort. Ok, so maybe that’s not so normal, and he does claim god-like status…and that only adds to the enjoyment of this book. It’s a very unusual love story
between two people who find what neither thinks they are looking for.
Jace and Adrienne live in Las Vegas. As mentioned, Jace is an escort and Adrienne is a party planner. Their paths seem to cross often, and they finally introduce themselves. Or rather, Jace introduces himself. Adrienne wants nothing to do with him, since she’s seen him several times always with a different woman on his arm. She doesn’t know the real reason for this, of course, and even though she is wildly attracted to him, she won’t allow herself to go there. But, circumstances present themselves and she ends up going out with him and letting herself “go there”. Though, she believes this to be only a one night thing. Yet, their paths continue to cross and they end exploring a relationship together. Will it all be ruined when she finds out the nature of his work? Can a man who has sex for a living be with only one woman?
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention from the start how incredibly sexy this book is. And I don’t mean regular sexy-time either…this is like “I learned a few things” territory. Committed a few of those
things to memory, that’s for sure. My impression of Jace is that he’s REALLY self-centered and egotistical. I mean, I guess he has reasons to be, and that doesn’t necessarily make him a douchebag, but I wasn’t sure at first I was actually going to like him because of it. He grew on me some, but I still don’t feel like I forged a connection to him by the end of the book. Adrienne, however, I really liked. She knows her own mind, is smart and really funny. She and her best friend Em had me laughing out loud more than once.
My one complaint about this book is that I didn’t really feel the connection to all of the characters that I wanted to. I’m not sure if it was the way it was written or just the nature of the story itself, but I only found myself about 50% invested in this book. It wasn’t a book that I had to read in one sitting or felt angsty and nervous about how it would all turn out. The plot was a bit predictable, as these things go, but I did like the perspective given by Jace in the book as a male escort. It was interesting and different to get inside of his head and see that lifestyle.
Overall, I did enjoy this book. I’m not sure it’s something I’ll be thinking about for days, but it was a solid 3.5 star read for me. And 3 of stars alone are for the sex…rawr.
I use the bathroom and wash my hands. Looking myself in the mirror, I give myself a pep talk.
“You can do this. You’re a strong, independent woman. You work hard and deserve to have some play time. Men go out and get laid all the time. There’s nothing wrong with you doing it, too.” I made sure to pep talk quietly.
I step out into the bedroom and see Jace sitting on the lounge chair. I walk over and sit on the bed that I can only assume is his, because this seems like a master bedroom. He watches me as I toe my shoes off, letting them drop to the floor. I scoot back a little and make eye contact with him.
He slowly gets up from the chair and takes his blazer off. Tossing it on the chair, he begins unbuttoning his shirt. I try to watch without drooling on myself. He peels the shirt off his body and is left wearing only jeans and a ribbed, sleeveless undershirt. His tattoos are on full display. Funny, I never imagined he had them. He’s always been fully covered up, but I gotta admit, they look fucking sexy on him.
He has a chest piece that extends to his left shoulder and upper arm. I can’t quite make out the detail, but it’s exquisite work. He saunters towards me and stands at the side of the bed. I let my tongue slide over my bottom lip and then bite down on the side as I take him in. His arms are deliciously muscled and his chest toned. I can’t wait to see what’s under that shirt…and those pants.
He pulls me closer to him by my ankle and then swiftly flips me onto my stomach. I let out a small gasp, but don’t stop him. He finds the zipper on the back of my dress and slowly unzips
it. I feel the breeze on my back, and then I feel the wet tip of his tongue licking me from the nape of my neck to the top of my ass. My body shivers uncontrollably.
Jace flips me onto my back again and pulls the dress from behind my shoulders and down my body. I’m left wearing my black, lace bra and panties.
His eyes rake over the entire length of my body like he’s deciding on what he wants to do first. My chest is rising with hard, heavy breaths, my entire body feels like it’s on fire, and my pussy is dripping.
