I was pressured by a fellow bartender to read this book, solely due to the fact that the male character and my husband have a very similar first name. So after the first chapter I was ready to put it down. The very detailed and juvenile approach to sex was slow and wasn’t holding my interest. However, since I was traveling at the time I thought I would stick with it. I am so glad I did. If you’re a “Fifty Shades” fan or a fan of similar genre, than you may like “Escorted”.
(Ander describing why he doesn’t do S&M for clients) There’s a small percentage of the population that’s into that lifestyle, but there’s a whole industry built around it. And, in general, those who participate in that lifestyle want to engage in the culture as a whole rather than using the occasional services of someone like me.” “Huh.” Lori thought about it for a minute. “If recent erotic romances are to be believed, most women are really into stuff like that.” Ander chuckled and shook his head. “But that’s the stuff of fantasies. Most women who get turned on reading about it wouldn’t actually want to live it out. It might turn them on in fantasies, but it wouldn’t in real life. Tell me the truth. What would you do if I tied you up, muzzled you, and started to whip you?” Lori thought about all the hot sex scenes she’d read featuring such activities. Then she honestly examined her own nature. She snickered. “I’d have you arrested for assault.”

The same concept, introduction into sex before a relationship, unfolds for the main characters. Even though the first couple chapters are just blatant sexual encounters, you start to chisel away at the character development. The characters, Lori & Ander, are actually really sweet and realistic. I kept feeling that the author might turn the book into “we never talk about our feelings thus we can’t continue our ‘meant to be’ relationship”, but happily she did not. Half way through I really wanted to know where the couple would end up, even though I know they must have a happy ending in store. The author also wrapped the book up nicely and doesn’t leave you with a sequel. I ended up enjoying this book so much, I know I will come back to it and read it again.
