Overview

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, Ander doesn't seem entirely immune either.

    Real romance

    I have to admit my coffee got cold, laundry is not getting done, dishes dirty, and my kids will probably eat cereal for dinner. I am half way through this book and i cannot put it down. I have over 100 romance books on my Nook and this one of the best. The author grabs your attention on the first page and never lets go. I only paused reading so i could express how wonderful this book is.

    I never write a review, but I was impressed

    I never write a review, but I was impressed with this new author. the story is a complete one with no sequel. the characters were so likable, so well developed, so human...I was impressed. You could see the evolution at all levels: emotional, relational and physical. the sex scenes were so well written,l so sexy with out all the unnecessary roughness we encounter nowadays...I lost myself in it. Very good book worth every penny.

    Recommened!

    Loved this!!! The first 3/4 of the book were incredible, I couldn't put the book down. Then, something changed, as if some other writer took over. The story became redundant, the dialogue was immature, and it was as if the writer were purposefully dragging out the ending. WHY! I loved this book, I wanted the inevitable HEA! The story had a HEA, by the way, but why the needless filler? There are over 900 pages, surely thats not too short. I recommend reading BREAKING, a a kind of follow up to ESCORTED, it helps give this more closure. And I really do recommend this book even with the flaws, it's that good. S.A.K.

    Unique

    This was so uniquely written, i enjoyed the subject matter, perspective, and everything else. For me this is a book that has stuck with me weeks after i read it. I read an average a book per day and through a year maybe ten books stick with me so much after reading them i can vividly remember them. Wonderful experience!

    Review: House/Well I was pressured by a fellow bartender to read

    Review: House/Well
    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.”
    Kent, Claire (2012-12-15). Escorted (p. 129).  . Kindle Edition.

    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.

    Great book!

    Loved the storyline and build-up. Very romantic. Story was very focused on the emerging relationship and the two characters and their feelings. Nice steamy love scenes. I've been waiting for this book to come out on nook for awhile and it does'nt disappoint!

    This fantastic erotic romance is the story of Lori and Ander. When Lori decides to hire a male escort to rid her of her embarrassing virginity problem, suave sophisticated Ander fits the bill. But a one night engagement turns into two, then three and so on, until the reality is that they have gone beyond a client/employer relationship into something far murkier. Calling it quits may be the only way for Lori to disengage herself from an emotionally doomed situation - unless they can both own up to their true feelings for each other before it is too late.

    I loved this story so much that when I finished it I just wanted to go back to the beginning and re-immerse myself in it again. I could not put it down once I started it. Ander was such an intriguing character. He's a professional escort - his job is to be whatever a woman wants, whether it's a date or a lover. Like any professional he brings his tool kit with him wherever he works - his body, sexual protection, assorted toys, and no doubt a toothbrush. His first interaction with Lori is so clinical as to be almost mundane for him. Yet, we see everything from Lori's perspective and her reaction to him is one of definite desire but also caution. She knows that he will have no feelings for her, yet as they keep seeing each other she gets glimpses from him that things are not so cut and dried. It was a nail biting experience to go from one week to the next with this couple as they learned things about each other that had never been shared before. On the road to romance, the sex was stellar (as expected and always delivered by Claire Kent)and plentiful. But the emotion underlying the sex is what makes this story stand out.

    Overall, this story delivered everything I could ask for in an erotic romance - interesting and engaging characters, steamy sex, emotional and tense moments and at the end a satisfying romantic conclusion. 5 fabulous stars.

    Just the best story. From the first page you can't put it down and at 977 pages it's really hot, sexy and just plain good. Will now read Breaking which is a 300 page novella that picks up where this book leaves off. Can't wait for more books from the author.

    Great book

    First book I read by Ms. Kent. I was blown away. Loved Lori and Ander's relationship. Even though he was an escort, their story was so much more than that. Looking forward to reading many more books by Ms. Kent.
