“In Summation”:*****This book is erotica. That means lots and lots of sex with a good amount of kink*****
That got your attention.
Some of the most powerful and well known women in the country pay to have sex with me, some of them married. Some are into more than just straight sex, which is why they call me. Bondage, power play, submission…nothing is off the table. I will do anything for the right price.
The stories I could tell you about a certain high profile congresswoman, or that innocent blonde actress. Trust me, she’s not so innocent.
Guys would kill for my job. I’m living the fucking dream. Meaningless sex, no relationship hang-ups and I’m rolling in the dough. Life is perfect, just the way it is.
Until I meet her.
She changes everything.
She makes me want more than I’ve ever wanted for myself and she believes in me. But she also thinks I sell insurance. I can’t stop what I do, but I can’t give her up.
Eventually, my two worlds are going to collide and when they do, shit will hit the fan.
“The Reviews are in”:This is one impressive novel! The mind of a male escort is revealed and his determination to keep his family comfortable is undeniable.
Who would not fall in love with Liam Cooper! He is the right mix of cocky and compassion. From his reasons of being, an escort to how he really does care about his clients will take your breath away.
“My name’s Liam Cooper, but most people just call me Coop. There are two things you should know about me. One; I’m a male escort and two; I’m damn good at my job. ~Coop introducing himself and his eight-year career.
The cocky attitude aside, he forms bonds with his clients and has fun with them. One he even becomes her best friend. He elbow rubs, among other things, with the rich and famous. And he aims to please.
‘It’s not that I’m a tease, not unless you were paying me to be one. The tease in my lifestyle was never quite being able to get where I wanted to be, or what I wanted for myself. I wasn’t the tease. But my potential was.’ ~Coop defines his existence and life.
Coop moves along, servicing clients and taking care of his family. He is taken back to his youth when his sister’s best friend returns to town. Mia gave him his first ‘hummer’ before she moved away.
Mia is a divorced nurse, who hasn’t really changed since Coop saw her last. Beautiful and adventurous. He is once again smitten.
‘Mia wasn’t a girly girl, by any means. She’d do anything, and make sure she was having fun while doing it.’ ~Coop remembering why he was a smitten boy.
Keeping his secret life, secret becomes difficult. He wants to confess all to Mia. He just doesn’t know how or when. Every time he is ready, something holds him back. Fear that he wouldn’t be enough for her drove him even while preparing to make love with Mia.
‘This was me, Liam. She was getting a part of me that no other woman had ever been with. I wasn’t the Dom; I wasn’t the cabana boy; I wasn’t the actor, the playboy, or Coop, the Escort.’ ~Coop is trying to decide if he was enough for Mia on his own without all the other trappings and personas.
The vulnerability of Liam Cooper was not what you will expect. Yes, he is a nice guy and is driven to do things most men would envy he is not corrupted. When he hurts, you will find yourself crying and hurting right along with him.
Many other characters in his life are not quite, what you think they are or can be.
His best friend is a client, Bethany. A young music star who at nineteen is being a typical hormone driven teen. Hiring an escort is easier than having her ‘real’ sex life blasted on tabloid pages.
Sex scenes are crazy hot and at the same time believable. Being an escort has its perks!
Tease’s characters are so well written and cultivated from the author’s imagination you will eagerly anticipate the next novel in the series.
