Publisher's Summary

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, Ander doesn't seem entirely immune either.

FROM JUST BUSINESS TO AN INTENSE BEAUTIFUL ROMANCE

I really loved this story, yes it was probably unrealistic but it felt so real, and I loved the slowly developing beautiful love story that evolved and ended in a memorable tearjerker of an ending. Lori, a successful romance writer was embarrassed that she was still a virgin at 26 so she decided to rid herself of the problem once and for all and then she thought she wouldn't be embarrassed and instead she would feel experienced enough to get physical when on dates. She decided to hire a male escort and chose Ander but she wasn't prepared for the handsome, charismatic, sexy, quiet and reserved man who knocked on her door.... and once was never going to be enough.

There was a lot of sex (not kinky) but, as Lori and Ander slowly got to know each other, Lori could see behind his professional face to the man that was desperately trying to get out. Their relationship spanned months, months of tender looks and the cracking facade that Ander carefully erected slowly began to come down. There were secrets, a bit of angst, heartache but out of it all came a beautiful romantic love story when they both finally let their feelings out.

The whole story was mainly focused around them and the characterization of Lori and Ander was amazing because you really felt for both of them and they were both intense, driven, strong, very vulnerable and loveable characters. Ander had to be a good actor for his profession but with Lori there was never any acting - everything was real. Told from Lori's POV and the narrator did a great job.

Worth a credit? As I said before, this is unrealistic, escapism, pure erotic fiction, but some of the best books are and oh how I enjoyed the journey.... a journey that I didn't want to stop and one that will stay with me. So creditworthy.... Hell Yeah!

not a new concept but a fun listen!

i needed something to listen to in between a long historical fiction book series and this did the trick. it's not a difficult read and you can easily get swept away with it. normally i don't listen to books unless i'm working but i couldn't put this one down.

Unique! One of my favorite books of all time!

Wow! What a unique book! First, the focus was very narrow. It focused only on the relationship between the h and the H, nothing else. Not once was the h at home, working or doing something mundane. Second, their relationship grew so slowly and subtly. You really had to pay attention to all the little nuances with the characters. You could kind of figure out what the H was feeling but it wasn’t obvious in the least. Then there was the sex- a lot of it. I normally hate books with nonstop sex, but again this book was different. It progressed over time from factual and clinical to passionate and meaningful. It told the story. I loved the deep, subtle growth of the characters and their relationship. I can see how some may have found it boring since it wasn’t flashy or overly dramatic. It was deep, slow, and sensual. So good!!!

Ok

It was cute but I felt like half the book was missing since it was told entirely from her perspective.

Back to basics

If you need some instructions, this virgin story will give you the basics.... just be careful you could end up falling in love with your instructor , even if it's his job to satisfy you and many other women...

Super-hot HEA explicit love story

This story was very alluring on many levels. First-time virgin sex, gigolo sex, great detailed explicit sex, a HEA ending, and excellent narration by a very pleasant sounding censor narrator. An all around winner.

Mechanical narrator

Too much sex for me or rather a repetition of phrases. However given that is was a 2 dimensional book the characters really developed in the latter half, so really 3 and a half stars.
I think if I had read the book the Anders would have just appeared courteous but this narrator changed the character by tone alone, a shame really.
