Synopsis

My name is Lucian Quinn and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I’m twenty-nine, rich and single. Impressive right? I’m also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. Maybe it sounds vain, but the fact that I’m a God between the sheets doesn’t hurt my stock any. What these women don’t know though is that I’m completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair by my past. The only part of me I’ll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream…several times.

Then I saw her…

I’m Lia Adams and I’m in my last year at St. Claire’s University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother, and a twisted stepfather who was worse…so much worse. I’m so close to escaping from my past and making my dreams come true. I’ll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men that I accompany to various events as an escort for Date Night are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arm for an evening. It has never gone further than that…until him…

 

Review

This is the first book I would ever read from this author. I’m happy to say that I am not disappointed. In fact, I’m even looking to read more of her works. I’ve enjoyed reading this first book in this series. There are instances which I found to be unrealistic, but it was, overall, an entertaining love story about two people who both had difficult lives.

I like Lia. She is a survivor. Her mother was a good for nothing witch who should have never become a mother in the first place. Her stepfather was evil in the flesh. He’d probably be worse than the devil. However, she was a strong person who picked herself up and worked hard and supported herself and sent herself to school. Her job as an escort wasn’t so scandalous because there was nothing else that happened aside from an actual date.

That’s the first thing I found unbelievable. I mean, I just find it hard to believe that there are still escort companies who provide escorts strictly for dates only without the possibility of the date ending up as something else. Anyway, I have nothing against escorts and all that. I just thought the whole concept was too fairy tale-ish. I also couldn’t believe her complete personality change since getting involved with Lucian, but well, that’s love for most people, so I think I can overlook that.

The hero, Lucian, is another survivor. His past relationship was one big clusterfuck. I mean I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where the hero had a past as tragic as his. The fact that he almost died because of his ex-fiance was just so sad. Sometimes, I fought hard not to laugh at him, especially during the sex scenes which were supposed to be hot. I mean, the sex scenes were really hot, but there was something in the way he talked sometimes that I just found funny. I mean, I don’t think I’ve met a fictional hero who talked the way he did during sex. It was hot, but I really found it ridiculous sometimes.

I am going to give this book four red hearts because I really enjoyed it. The story had equal parts, hot, sweet, suspense, drama, and mystery injected into the whole plot. I like the secondary characters too. This book isn’t just like any other erotic romance novels out there. In this series, we all go on a journey with the two broken souls who still have so much in them to give to ever give up on life and love. I am rooting for Lia and Luc to have their happy ending. This book ends with a cliffhanger, by the way, which is just suspenseful enough and exciting enough to give readers a sleepless nights until they get their hands on the next installment.
