They say that love is the most powerful force in the universe. They’re wrong. Sex, lust, passion, these are the emotions which human beings crave. And they’ll spend any amount of money for a taste.
I’m the guy that makes your heartbeat rise with a look, your breath falter with a touch. It’s my job. My name is Thor Jameson and I’m a male escort. No, I’m THE male escort. My reputation is unrivalled and well deserved.
I’ve always been for sale, until the one thing I didn’t even realise I wanted was thrust in my face by chance. For once, I’m not selling, and she’s certainly not buying.
Thor is one of the most sought after male escorts. He owns his own company, and although he now has several employees, allowing him the freedom to work when he chooses, he ends up breaking one of his own rules. He takes on a client who doesn't know she's a client. He's hired by her friend to be a "blind date" for her at her sister's wedding. Poppy has been shunned by her family, which is why her friend wants her to go with Thor. She has no idea that he's a male escort. He's gorgeous and mysterious and makes her feel special. Thor enjoys her company because she's not pretending, has no filter, and doesn't look at him like he's beneath her.
I said LP Lovell takes my out of my comfort zone, and she does with this book. There are several elements in it that typically turn me off and cause me to stop reading, but LP's writing is so good, that I had to continue. And I'm glad I did. My biggest complaint was that I felt the ending was rushed. I wanted to know more.
This is the beginning of a new series from LP Lovell. The Recherche Series will focus on the high end escorts in this fictitious London company. I can't wait to read the next one. 4-stars!
