Blurb: She hired him to take her virginity…but now she wants even more.
Lori might be a popular romance writer, but she’s never been anything but a flop with sex and love in her personal life. Still a virgin at twenty-six and increasingly frustrated by her inexperience, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She hires a talented, sexy male escort to take care of her inconvenient virginity.
She assumes one time with Ander will be enough, but she never dreams how much pleasure he can make her feel. Once isn’t nearly enough. Twice isn’t enough either. Soon, she becomes one of his regular clients.
Lori knows that nothing would be as foolish as falling in love with her paid escort, but she’s never been wise with her heart. And, despite his professionalism, he doesn’t seem entirely immune either.
Escorted is one of those books that annoy me because with just a few little tweaks this could’ve easily been a solid 4 star book but there were just tiny things that kept it down.
There were trivial things that annoyed me but could be easily looked over (third person narrative, bald-headed hero*)
I think my main problem was it took a while for the sex scenes to stop sounding so clinical and awkward. Some parts of the sex scenes made me feel like I was reading How to Have Sex for Dummies.
It would’ve also been nice to read about what Lori got up to when she wasn’t with Ander. I would’ve liked to have heard more about the fiction conference in Hong Kong or even what Lori got up to when she wasn’t having sex.
There was also too much biting for me and also too many uses of the word “passage” to describe Lori’s vagina.
However, despite saying all that, I still did enjoy it and towards the last 20% I found myself almost devouring the story because it really was good. I just wish the whole book had been similar to that.
