This is nothing short of sinful, deliciously decadent and fabulously filthy!
Following hot on the heels of both Thor and Kaden, this is all about Xavier and in my opinion these guys are just getting better and better. The author seems to have a spring in her step and it certainly shows because with each of the books the stories are getting better and better, I mean Kaden was a good read, but Xavier well he beats him hands down!
Xavier is friends with Thor, so it was little surprise that when his life imploded and he lost everything, it would be his friend that would offer him a helping hand.
Its only been six years but to Xavier it feels both like a lifetime ago and only yesterday because while he has recovered from the loss of his job, the fact that he lost the security his wealth afforded him, he still hasn’t actually resolved how he feels about his ex- Alexa. The pain he felt when she left him still weighs heavy on him and in that respect, he has the most delicious internal conflict, how can he still hate a woman that if truth be told he still loves.
Well he needs to find a happy medium because he’s just picked up a new client and it is none other than Alexa and her husband. Oh dear …. things have just gotten very, very interesting indeed!
The dynamic, the connection and the undertone of conflict all made for a deliciously addictive read. A quick and honest read steal much time out of the day but stole my breath, it brought so much to the page that while it was expectedly scorching, what I had anticipated was the emotional vulnerability that was also prevalent.
I was thanking my lucky stars that this was a novella, because it was one that had it been full length, I would have been losing sleep. This pair will keep you on your toes as you whip through the up’s and down’s of not only what they once had, what they have now and what they can have in the future.
So many authors who have series often have a similar cadence and general plot line or maybe it would be better described as flow...so there are some surprises but they are often fairly predictable, but not Brit Lauren. Each book has it's own plot and you never know exactly what to expect from her stories.
This book is about Xavier, who we get to meet a little in Thor & Kaden's books and you get just enough about him in those books to make you wonder what his story will be about. You get to see how Xavier feels about his current profession and how he deals with his ex showing up as a client after 6 years.
Throw out all your preconceived notions when reading this book...sit back and enjoy the ride through all the twists and turns that keep you guessing.
I loved the ending, but I am hopeless romantic that believes in soulmates...do you?
That said, this is Xavier's story, secretive, aloof, he's been escorting for six years without incident. That is, until he meets his new client Alexa...his ex!
He realizes he's not over her, and when she brings her husband to their date...
Well, you'll have to read this HOT, TWISTED, short story to find out what happens.
Let me just say it's worthwhile finding out!
Steam factor- 5 Stars
Plot development- 3 Stars
Editing- 3 Stars
I must admit, escort tropes are a dirty indulgence of mine so when LP Lovell (aka Brit Lauren) started writing the Recherché series, I knew it'd be a no brainer I'd pick it up. Each novella is centered around a different high-end escort and can be read as a standalone but I'd still read the series in order. The books read fast and are seriously smoking hot.
Xavier is a very popular escort within the company yet on a personal level he's kind of clipped and not especially friendly. I was anxiously awaiting his backstory to get a better understanding of his deal. This is where the story falls seriously short for me.
First of all, I have no clue that prologue. I don't want to spoil it but the health-related happenings don't really have any relevance to his future happenings. It was all very odd to me.
Secondly, this is a second chance romance and I had no clue the H/h backstory and specifically WHY Alexa left him except that she did. He wasn't happy or being true to himself but her dumping him made no sense. Then her husband hires him because he's into cuckholding? A must admit that was hot but I really struggled with their backstory to be able to embrace their connection and possibility for a second chance romance.
Third, editing. This was a published edition (NOT and advanced copy) and I struggled with lack of common sense edits. If spell-check doesn't catch it, it's good to publish? That's a hard limit for me. Readers are consumers and we expect things constructed correctly. I wouldn't buy, nor keep, a pair of pants with the stitching coming apart. A basic beta reader could've caught 95% of the spell-correct typos. If I hadn't loved the steam factor, I would've returned it out of annoyance of the shotty editing.
But all in all, Xavier and Alexa are smoking hot and he's an escort and I'm a sucker for everything both those in my books. Still waiting for Malcolm's book....
