I am so glad I didn't let the first chapter scare me away. I absolutely fell in love with Jace. He's an escort in Vegas, so I'm thinking sexy, rich, talented in bed..... He didn't disappoint. The more of the book I read, the more I liked him. He just seemed so genuine, so caring. He's absolutely perfect.
How in the world can you possibly have a normal relationship when you are an escort? What woman in her right mind would be willing to not only let her man go out on dates with other woman, but to romance, and even possibly sleep with them? A couple of Jace's co-workers are starting to ask themselves this same question.
Jace was never interested in a relationship, that is up until he saw Adrienne. Adrienne is an event planner in Vegas. She's attracted to Jace, but she's seen him with several different women. A player is NOT someone she is interested in. Adrienne's friend convinces her that one night with Jace would be perfect. A date, a little fun between the sheets, and she'd be able to put him out of her mind and move on.
Things didn't quite work out that way. One night just wasn't enough for them. Will Jace admit what he does for a living? Will Adrienne be able to handle it (just imagine that scene - when you find out the man you've been dating has been paid to date other women while he's seeing you)? Will it work out? You'll have to read to find out.
I was provided a copy of this book as part of a blog tour in return for an honest review.
Jace works as a high-end escort, catering to the social and after-hours needs of rich and powerful women that may not have the time or inclination otherwise for traditional relationships. He works for an agency and has several close “co-workers” that are also employed as escorts. This sets the storyline up nicely for subsequent books in the series, getting a glimpse of the personalities and lives of the men we’ll learn more about in the future. Not only is Jace an escort, but he’s working on opening his own nightclub in Vegas with his friends Troy and Marc, also escorts. Jace has been smart with his money and is now living a life of luxury, one that he could have only imagined growing up with a single mom and tragedies that he is more than happy to have left behind. Jace’s life changes though when he makes the acquaintance of Adrienne, a woman that he encountered in passing several times, until he is finally able to employ her as the event planner for his club’s opening.
Adrienne is coming out of a relationship, nearly swearing off men for good. Her last relationship left much to be desired, especially in the sex department, so when she meets Jace, or “god-like creature” as he is referred to between Adrienne and her best friend Emilie, all bets are off and she soon realizes that she can’t resist the attraction she feels towards him. Things are good at first until she finds out about his secret life as an escort. She makes it painfully clear to him that she’s not willing to share; he needs to make a choice if he wants to keep her, the escort business or her.
I have read complaints from other readers about the abundance of sex in this book and honestly, I did not feel it was over the top. The sex scenes were incredibly well written and downright hot. Normally if a book has too much sex (yes, those books exist) I find myself just skimming to get through it. That didn’t happen in this book. There is sensuality in the scenes that helps to develop a deep sense of emotion between the two characters.
I loved the characters and I loved their interactions with each other, not just Jace and Adrienne, but the friendship between Adrienne and Emilie and the relationship with Jace and his friends. I loved the back and forth banter between them and could sense the loyalty between them. The characters were well developed and the storyline flowed well. There was a little bit of angst, but that is probably to be expected when you have one of the partners who is pretty much a hooker! There is likely to be issues of trust there.
Living in Sin is the first book in the Escort Series. It can be read as a standalone and the story wraps up nicely at the end. It was a solid four star read for me. I enjoyed it from cover to cover and it maintained my interest throughout. There seems to be a lot of books out there right now using Vegas as a storyline, either through escorts, or partying gone awry or whatever and while this book was well written and engaging, there wasn’t really anything that set it that much apart from the others. I would definitely recommend it to friends and am set to dive right into the next book in the series, Unforgivable Sin, which picks up right were this book leaves off and tells the story of Emilie and Troy. I have already picked up Ms. Lucero’s other books and look forward to those as well!
