5 out of 5 stars
This can be a read as a standalone but I have to say you need to read fall out girl first.
This isn’t the first book or the last book I have read by Ms. Duarte. Her writing gets better with each story she writes. The author flawlessly brings her readers directly into the heart of her characters. We get to see some of our friends from fall out girl and what they were up too.
Seth Phoenix aka Jake knows how it feels to have lost it all. Which is why he worked so hard to gain it all back. As one of the best male escort in the country, he has it all—money, looks, and the greatest job description: to pleasure women. He wants for nothing in life. Until one day, completely captivated by a beauty and innocence he had never seen before, he marries one of his clients.
Charlotte “Lottie” Cahan is a student at the prestigious Yale. As a self-professed geek, she wears thick glasses and her nose is always buried in a book. But on her 21st birthday, her best friend Chloe convinces her to go to Vegas for a night of fun. Despite her insecurities and unworldly innocence, at a whim, she marries a man she just met. What she doesn’t know is that this man was hired to give her 21 orgasms on her 21 birthday.
Seth can’t believe his eyes the beauty who completely captivated him is his client.
This steamy relationship seems to be destined for forever. But the world is a smaller place than they both believed and secrets, long forgotten and abandoned, will resurface to haunt them. Can they survive the dark secrets from their past? Will they have a happily ever after?
And I absolutely adored the epilogue and I highly recommend this book.
By Tracy Manderson
This story is not an easy or light romantic read, it is beautiful, amazing, steamy and romantic with some really heavy baggage that BOTH of the main characters carry with them. They are PERFECT for each other, they balance each other out, they enable each other to express the sides they have suppressed or that they think they have no right for …. It is a journey to discovering what love means to one, how a completely broken person can be put back together when they meet the right person and when they open themselves up to the possibility of love … We will meet again Luna and Caleb and Caleb’s parents from Fall Out Girl here but it is not continuation of their story!
I have always been drawn to words and the emotions and images they evoke and I am telling that after having read two books by Ms Duarte that are linked with each other, she is a master with words! You have no choice but keep reading as you are caught in the net from the first page on and you know that there is no escape until you have reached the last page …
Do yourself a favor and read this book, you will not regret the time you will use for it, it will make you to appreciate your life or it makes you to re-evaluate your life, you will NOT walk away from it untouched!
It's the first day of 2016 and A Taste of Utopia is the first book to ring in the New Year!!!!! And let me just say that I am absolutely smitten with this book and found myself a new author to stalk. L. Duarte, you have my complete and undivided attention now. As a hopeless romantic at heart, Ms. Duarte has managed to set my heart racing with A Taste of Utopia.
So when I first read the blurb, a male escort and a self-professed innocent geek, who happens to be a virgin fall in LOVE, I was immediately sold. And from the first page of the prologue to the very last page, Ms. Duarte had me devouring this book in one sitting. L.Duarte will be capturing the hearts of any romance aficionados as she showcases a couple who were meant to meet, fall in love and have their lives intertwined.
"SEX IS MY domain. I play a woman’s body like a neurosurgeon works a scalpel, calm and deliberate. However, there’s an urgency to the way I desire Lottie. A desperation. I want to f#*% her with the same eagerness a martyr is ready to die for his cause. This raw attraction hums through my body with full-blown intensity. It’s overpowering.”
Do you believe in fate? Do you believe you can fall in love with a person and know within just one kiss that this person is "the one"? The one person who will set your racing. The one who without a doubt will change your life. The game changer. Well in the case for Seth Phoenix, he knew from the moment that he laid his eyes on on Charlotte “Lottie” Cahan, that she was the one.
Charlotte is in Vegas to celebrate her 21st birthday. A recent graduate from the prestigious YALE University, Charlotte considers herself a geek and innocent. So while in Vegas with her best friend, Chloe she decides to finally let loose and maybe cash in some orgasms...well to be more exact lose her virginity. But what Charlotte isn't aware of is that Chloe had hired a male escort to give her endlesss amount of orgasms. And as it turns out, Seth was the male escort to grant and fulfill Lotte's birthday wishes. But what happens when, Seth doesn't want to be just a male escort and wants to be the guy for Lotte. And what happens when Seth and Lotte decides to get married in Vegas, will he be able to tell Lotte that he is a male escort? How will Lotte's parents react to this spur of the moment marriage? Can a male escort and a virgin fall in love with each other less than a week? How can something so wrong feel so right?
"And I fall. And he catches me. And he falls. And I catch him. And we spiral downward in a kaleidoscope of tangled bodies, intertwined souls, screams of release and the rapture of pleasure.”
A Taste of Utopia by L. Duarte was the perfect book to kick off my 2016 book calendar. It had everything I was looking for in a sweet romance. The hero, Seth was an absolute gem. He didn't have an ego that I would normally expect to find in a male escort but was truly a genuine soul. He was kind, understanding, and had such a big heart. Usually, I am apprehensive on the insta-lust/love romance but Ms. Duarte wrote A Taste of Utopia perfectly. She was able to incorporate an emotional journey and personal growth for both Seth and Lotte, that you could understood why they fell in love with each other so fast. They had the kind of love that knocks them off their feet. It is the kind of love that reminds us all that we meet thousands of people, and then you meet the one person, and your life is changed forever. And for Seth and Lotte.. it was about taking that chance to really fall...and fall in love they did.
So if you are looking for a book that was the perfect blend of friendship, love, and sacrifices, then I highly urge you to read A Taste of Utopia. Thank you, Ms. Duarte for writing a sweet book that was brimming with so much passion and heart.
