I love this book and am looking forward to reading the whole series. I don't think it's better than Fifty Shades but it is its own story and so far it is enthralling, I know what books I'll be listening to by the pool this summer.

Narration, Summer Morton - Really Good! She has a great sounding voice and handles characters of both sexes quite well.
The story? Hmmm. I'm not sure. I liked it and didn't like it. We have the "been there, done that" girl who's down on love coupled with the concept of the gambling father who gets pummeled into a coma and now the daughter has to bail him out to protect him, herself and her sister. She becomes an escort, but in order to make enough money to pay off the loan shark, who happens to be an ex - (yeah...I know, solid guy) her aunt (the "madame") suggests that she take month long jobs. She'll get 100K for each job and it'll be easier to make that kind of money. So, she sets up a payment plan with the loan shark, and all will be good in a year. Sex is not required and the organization can not charge a client for sex, (cause that would be prostitution) but if she chooses to have sex with the guy - that's her choice - and he's supposed to leave an envelope with an additional 20 K that's all hers to keep.
So her first client Wes, is a screen writer who just needs a block to keep the chicks off him while he's networking at special events. Of course, she's delightful, he's a hunk-a-burnin' love and they fall into an easy and chemistry filled friendship (and into bed..with some rules, of course).
It's a really good audiobook and I loved listening to it, but honestly - it's a little depressing, because there's really no HEA. You get all invested in the couple and they get invested in each other and them BAM - she's off to Mr. February.
I have no idea, but I imagine all 12 of her guys are going to fall for her and she's going to leave each of them and I'm just ready to hear more about her and Wes. *sighs*
This is another expensive serial albeit each "episode" almost seems like a standalone.
I got this one in a sale, but would NOT use a credit on these - they're just too short and there are too many credit worthy books out there. Nearly 6 bucks a pop for the audio and 3 bucks each for the kindle so I may just be moving along on this one... or maybe I'll listen to just one more???

I went into reading this novella knowing that my friends have had mixed reviews. And by the end, I'm not entirely sure how my heart could have swooned anymore. It's going to be really hard for me to see Mia with anyone else but Wes - I don't know how they could ever measure up after him.
