Publisher's Summary

They told me I'd be an escort; they made it sound so easy.

Really, I'm just a high-priced call girl.

Desperation brought me to this, and it led me to him, my one and only client.

Hating him is easy; he reminds me of my shame.

Wanting him is wrong; it fills me with guilt.

Loving him is a losing battle, yet it's become everything.

A gift and a curse, he consumes my every thought, and I'd rather play my part in his bed than to spend one day without him.

    "Enjoyable Story"

    The story was good and kept me interested until the end. I loved the epilogue. Some stories leave you hanging at the end but this one had a great conclusion.

    Lia Langola did a great job narrating this story. I'll be looking for more books done by her.

    Jackson made me mad at the beginning! What a Jerk! I'm glad he grows out of it. Sage finds herself in a horrible situation. Not many people would be able to put up with someone like Jackson and hold their own.

    This book was given to me free of charge in exchange for my unbiased and honest opinion.

    "I loved every minute of it"

    ****I was given this audio book from www.audiobookblast.com free in exchange for an honest review*****

    OHMYGODDDDD!!!!!!! I loved this book. It was by no means a sweet, lovely romance. It was dysfunctional, messed up, profane, upsetting and at times a little disturbing romance. But I freaking loved it, I loved every minute of it.

    This book is a love story between a abusive jerk main character and an 'escort' (basically a prostitute) protagonist. Though Sage, our female MC, has a decent amount of self respect, she takes a lot of abuse because she needs to keep her job. On the flip side, they both grow a lot as people, and even at their worst, I still hoped that Jackson and Sage would grow enough as people to have a functional relationship. Actually, functional or dysfunctional, I just wanted them together.

    Both of them came from horrible, abusive families, and the author does a really good job of showing the psychological effects of their various upbringings, one with abandonment issues, the other with inferiority issues. I find this juxtaposition is pretty common in this genre. This book also very loosely follows the 'Pretty Woman' plotline, but the author openly embraces the comparison, having the characters see the similarity in the story and comment more than once on it.

    Some people don't like stories like these, with messed up dysfunctional characters, one a jerk alpha male, the other a protagonist trapped in a demining situation. I hope that I can warn those people away and ask them to please not read or listen this book, they'll probably hate it and might end up writing a bad review and bring down the average. They're not the intended audience, and I seriously think this book deserves a high average.

    But if you're like me, and love a little steamy dysfunction with your romance, then yes GET IT!!!! This book is definitely five star read for me, maybe a six or seven star. I was given an audiobook copy at 4 yesterday, I started it after my son went to bed and I'm writing this review at 9 this morning, that's how good it was, I could not stop listening.

    The narrator, Lia Langola, was also very talented. I didn't notice any recording issues and her voices for the men were as great as her voices for the women.

    Great steamy audio book/ book all around!

    Story
    "Decent Story"

    This story was kind of predictable from the beginning. A poor girl, who will do anything to survive, meets a rich man. I felt like there was not enough character development, and I would have liked to know more about some things. I thought that the hero was a jerk, and I don’t believe that he could have changed so quickly. I didn’t like how the heroine was so forgiving toward him. In overall, it was an decent read, but the ending left me unsatisfied, and I feel like it had much more potential.

    This is my first time listening to a book narrated by Lia Langola. She is a wonderful narrator and her voice was refreshing. I will continue to seek out more of her work.

    Lia Langola is a new narrator to me and I like her voice. She sounded age-appropriate for the story and has a confidence voice (thankfully she is not nasally or whiney!)

    She did well with a rather formulaic story (a desperate girl, who will do anything to survive, meets a alpha rich man) and I will definitely be on the look out for more books narrated by Lia

    "On the fence"

    I am on the fence about this story it's a bit disheartening how the alpha male character treats the main female character in the story. The narrator did a great job but the story line needed a bit more happier moments in it.

    "Liked it but..."

    Sage is a single woman struggling to make ends meet. Estranged from her family and in a new city jobless with no friends she takes a job as an escort.

    Jackson Stone does not to relationships and avoids emotional attachments. Tired of looking for women who meet his needs he decides to hire an escort to make things easier.

    Jackson is an alpha to the core. It really is his way or the highway. He can come off as a jerk and be ruthless. Sage is sweet and innocent and stands no chance when it comes to Jackson.

    The story started off well, but then sort of flat lined for me. After the second meeting it jumps into a month later and Sage is already falling for Stone. Their pasts are briefly explored but not in depth and I needed that to be able to connect more with Jackson and Sage. It did have a great epilogue and it was my favorite part of the story.

    It's told in dual POVs, and Lia did a great job with the narration. I will continue to listen to books narrated by her.

    Story : 3 stars

    Story
    "Great listen...Steamy much?!?!?!?"

    This book was very well written to grab you and hold you until the end. I really thought the narration was great and the writing was superb. The story is somewhat cliche in that Jackson is a real douche, but it's because of the way he was raised and he ultimately falls for a wholesome girl, Sage, who's down on her luck. But the dialogue and storyline read smoothly and the twists and turns keep you engaged. I had to reluctantly pause on multiple occasions spanning two days!

    I thought the narration was done very well. It was smooth and flowed very well. The inflection and emotion were done nicely and she got a bit into it during the steamy parts, which is much better than a mundane and monotonous telling of a sex scene.

    I did feel like Jackson was quite a bit overbearing and got quite whiny at times, and Sage was a little too mousy and self-denigrating. But throughout, they both show the other sides of their personalities which I think helped to balance it out a bit.

    Ending was pretty good, except for the part where Jackson reverted to complete A-Hole after learning his fate. I thought he was joking at first, then when I learned he wasn't, I felt like reaching into the book and strangling him.

    Lots of sex, and lots of graphic descriptions. I enjoyed it, just know it's in there in case you might be offended.

    I received a free copy of this audio book for an honest review.
