Escorted by Claire Kent

Review is intended for mature audiences, 18+.


She hired him to take her virginity...but now she wants even more.

Lori might be a popular romance writer, but she's never been anything but a flop with sex and love in her personal life. Still a virgin at twenty-six and increasingly frustrated by her inexperience, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She hires a talented, sexy male escort to take care of her inconvenient virginity.

She assumes one time with Ander will be enough, but she never dreams how much pleasure he can make her feel. Once isn't nearly enough. Twice isn't enough either. Soon, she becomes one of his regular clients.

Lori knows that nothing would be as foolish as falling in love with her paid escort, but she's never been wise with her heart. And, despite his professionalism, he doesn't seem entirely immune either.

My rating: 4 Stars

As an Amazon freebie, I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one. I'm pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Lori is best selling romance author who is known for her steamy sex scenes. She's also a twenty-six year old virgin who is ready just get it over with already. Instead of waiting for a real man, she decides to hire an escort to take her virginity and maybe teach her a thing or two.

Ander is the perfect man for the job. He's bald, sexy, and oozes sensuality. It also doesn't hurt that this man totally knows his way around the bedroom.

Seriously, the perfect Ander. Who wouldn't want this bedroom tutor?

The initial encounter yields some promising results, but it's clear that Lori could benefit from Ander's expertise a few more times.

The way this book was written was very interesting to me. For the most part, the interactions between Lori and Ander are in the hotel room. The author did a fantastic job at slowly showing the progression and the changes in the relationship from client/escort to a fast friendship to even maybe something more.  She dropped subtle hints along the way, and it was killing me every time Lori noticed a change but didn't really put much credence to it. At the same time, this is one of things that I loved about her. She went into this knowing it was going to be all business, and she didn't mind. Even as she found herself falling for him she was strong enough to keep her feelings at bay. She didn't turn into a weak sniveling heroine. She kept her head up and continued to enjoy the ride. ;)

Ander was pretty much perfect for me. From the beginning, it was so clear that he was drawn to her. He treated her like she was so much more than just a client. Watching him bring out Lori's sensuality was no where near clinical. He treated her as if she were his most coveted lover. The man that things can do in the bedroom...whew!

One of my favorite aspects of this book is that Ander and Lori interacted with such ease. It was heartwarming to watch them quickly become friends, and soon they had me chanting "TELL HER ALL YOUR FEELS!!!"

We are treated to some action outside of the hotel, and I really was left wanting more. Don't get me wrong, I loved the hotel interactions, but it was refreshing to see them in another setting. However, that doesn't affect my rating in any way. I think the point of this book is for us to see the relationship development from the hotel room, and the author did a fantastic job paving the way.

All in all, this was a really good read and I will check out more from Claire Kent!
