When Daniel has to travel to San Francisco and needs an escort for a social event, the beautiful Sabrina shows up on his doorstep. Little does he know that she's not an escort but a lawyer from a firm he’s just hired for a business deal. Their encounter quickly turns steamy until lies threaten to destroy their passionate affair.


Daniel Sinclair is a very busy New York businessman, on his way to San Francisco for an important business deal, when he realizes he has left some papers he needs at his girl friends apartment the other night. As he has a key, he decides to swing by and get them. Audrey will be at a charity function, so she won’t mind. Daniel is not sure what to do about Audrey, he certainly does not love her, and he does not really want her anymore. So walking in on her and his lawyer in bed together, is sort of a relief. But he will miss his lawyer, and now he needs to find someone else to represent him and quick.

And so he calls his best friend in San Francisco and asks him to recommend a good lawyer firm, and hire him an escort for the evening to keep all the husband looking socialites at bay. And no, he is not interested in a blind date; he wants a no strings attached escort. With the possibility of sex. When a very hot woman shows up at his door, Daniel is instantly hooked. And she plays her role excellently.

Sabrina is not an escort though; she is a lawyer doing a favor for her sick best friend who is an escort. If she doesn’t help Holly will get fired. Sabrina hasn’t had a date or sex for years now, after being burned by a boyfriend in college, and she really needs to let loose. After all, this stranger will leave town the next day, and she will never have to see him again…


Neither Daniel nor Sabrina expects the instant connection between them, and the sex afterwards is amazing. And so Daniel hires “Holly” again for the next evening, but more like a date this time. Seeing “Holly” at his new law firm with another man (who is harassing her) is something he really dislikes seeing, and he is determined to extend his stay and have Holly with him on his terms, no matter the cost. And then the plot gets out, when he meets the real Holly and she tells him everything. So how can he get Sabrina to agree? Especially when she thinks he is cheating on his girlfriend who showed up at his hotelroom the other night …


Tina Folsom will attend the Love Letter Convention in Berlin for the third year now, and as she is a really nice lady, I really had to read one of her books. I know they are too erotic for my tastes, but I saw this one in my best friends’ bookcase, and borrowed it. It was a fun little story, with lots of sex and sexual tension, and I did enjoy the romance between Daniel and Sabrina. Yes, I did skip most of the lovescenes but not all of them.
Daniel is a bit heavy handed at times, but he knows what he wants and he goes after Sabrina. I liked Sabrina, who wants to work hard but is harassed by one of her bosses. She has had a very bad experience in college, and doesn’t trust men very much. But she does love her best friend and to help her out she agrees to act as escort for one night. She falls for Daniel fast, as he doesn’t act at all like she was expecting. A man bent on his own pleasures and not caring about her at all. Daniel wants to pleasure her just as much, and enjoys doing it. So when he asks for her again, she doesn’t really mind meeting him again.

It was a fun plot, and a nice story. If you like steamy contemporary romance, I do recommend this one.

7 stars.

    1. Thanks for visiting Tina! I get all my cover pictures from one book site, and it is indeed very different from the one on the book that I read.

  2. Oo I have this one but a different cover I think. I enjoy her vamp series. It's not what I'd call erotica. There's some sex scenes but it's not over the top (even though it starts mid a naughty scene almost). Glad you enjoyed it! And aw so lucky having met her!

  4. ^^^^^Right?! When I first saw it, I was like I know I've heard of that book before, but I do NOT remember that cover, LOL. I do like steamy contemporary when I'm in the mood for it, and I'm pretty sure that I already have this . . . just need dig it out ;) ALSO--so cool that you met the author!

    1. Yes, we will meet her for the third year now, and so it was high time to finally pick up one of her books. It won't be the last one either Jessica.

  6. This one sounds fun! The twist that the escort is actually a lawyer doing a favor for her escort friend sounds nice. I'll have to check this one out.
