We finally get Luca's story and it was worth thewait! Even though I really liked the first book in the series, I actuallypreferred this story more, just on the fact that this time, it's a man who isdoing the escort role. He has a solid reason for why he's chosen thisparticular path, although he's not exactly thrilled with his currentoccupation. 

About the Author

Kelly Collins writes with the intention of keeping the love alive. Always a romantic, she is inspired by real-time events mixed with a dose of fiction. She encourages her readers to reach the happily ever after but bask in the afterglow of the perfectly imperfect love.
 
Kelly lives in Colorado at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her husband of twenty-five years, their two dogs, and a bird that hates her. 

In her spare time, she enjoys walking the trails and visiting the mining towns like Cripple Creek. She likes to think it's the ambience that brings her there and not the amazing slot machine in the back of the casino. 
 
In the winter, you'll find her tucked into herseat at The World Arena cheering her beloved Colorado College Tigers Hockey Team.  After several losing seasons she knows there's a win coming soon. Kelly is no fair weather fan. 
 
She has three amazing children, and she wonders how they all turned out to be engineers when only the creative side of her brain seems to work. She just chalks it up to the engineering genes her husband contributed to the mix. 

Creative minds need an outlet and writing books is where she focuses her excess energy.

I bugged, nagged, pleaded, and downright stalked Ms. Collins for a sequel to her amazing book, "Dean's List". At first I think she had thought she had finished the story and boy was I a happy camper when she said she was thinking about writing a sequel. Then all I had to do was check in with her for bugging every once in a while so I wasn't forgotten. Definitely stalking but I had to know what happened to my characters. Ms. Collins did not disappoint. She is such a lovely lady who is beyond generous to her fans. She gave me a wonderful story that was unique and also gave me a glimpse into the lives of previous characters (LOVE). I am thrilled with the outcome and I hope Ms. Collins is proud of her work as it was a really solid book! denise bailey

5 wonderful stars!

This book contains Luca's story, who was featured in The Dean's List, which I truly loved.

Although I loved TDL, I'm beyond in love with Honor Roll. You're given a much more in-depth look into Luca's life. Luca is a very relatable character, as well as Mim. I feel as though they both fit together perfectly, and this book couldn't have had any more of a perfect ending.

While both books are considered a standalone, I highly recommend reading The Dean's List first.

I was given a copy of this book to conduct a beta read and I'm very happy to have received it.

With the opening line of this story being “When I stepped off the bus on 6th Avenue, I felt tired, I’d been whipping my dick out for dollars all week and my twenty-six year old body couldn’t keep up.” I completely expected this book to fall on just that side of raunchy. Surprisingly it doesn’t…not that it mattered to me.

We learned a bit about the hunky Luca in The Dean’s List. He’s the male counterpoint to River and Jade. Like the ladies, he’s taking part of the concierge service to pay off student debt, which frankly I can’t blame the man. For me, I found it more interesting that he was paying off the debt not just to be free of it but to prove his father wrong. I think this humanizes both the character and the plot line.

In Honor Roll, we get to see a bit more of the details regarding his regulars but moreover how it’s not necessarily just the sex involved. I think the story hits the nail on the head on the differences between what men want versus what women want. We get to see a vast array of woman and what issues they bring to relationships of all kinds—not that men don’t have their own baggage.

In the midst of his final weeks as a gigolo, Luca finds matters complicated by his sudden interest in Mim. While we don’t get too much of her, their connection further emphasizes the power of his job and how it has strained or even nullified any romance throughout his college years.

In the end, I expected this to be smutty but in reality it’s quite heart-warming with just enough heat to make it sexy.

Very good story. Lots of sex and also lots of happiness. It was exciting from beginning to end. What a life this young man went thru in his young life. He almost lost family and the love of his life as he climbed the latter to success.

> Review – Honor Roll

>I am an independent reviewer. This is a follow up book to "The Dean's List" and ends in an HEA.

>In this story we get to know a lot more about the male escort, Luca. Luca is obsessed with graduating debt-free, yet selling himself is becoming shameful to him. When Luca meets Mim, a cute grad student, he decides he wants a relationship. There is a fine line between cheating and work for Luca and the whole conflict is whether Luca can keep Mim after she finds out the truth.

>There are a lot more descriptions of individual appointments with Luca, each appointment is very unique, some being quite comical, though all sexual in nature. Luca’s parents and even Mim’s parents make an impact in the story despite not being in the story that much. The theme of forgiveness and love is brought out with the parents and with the appearance of the priest. Religion plays a much larger part in this story than in the previous one. I give Mim credit for getting over Luca’s job as quickly as she did. Luca has the sweetest personality. He is a wonderful listener and a perfect gentleman. I thought it was humorous that he wouldn’t sleep with Mim, in order to not taint her.

>This book touches on some sensitive topics, like sex as a commodity. My heart broke when Luca told Mim he never made love before. I am glad to have gotten an insight into Luca and his motivations. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving it 4 stars. The character of Mim was hard for me to like. I actually connected much more with Luca, even though the thought of being an escort is not something even near my comfort zone. Mim was abrasive. I didn’t see the attraction for Luca. The story as a whole worked well and will open one’s eyes to the power of money.
