Overview

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Michelle Schwartz
This truly is one epic read. The story brings adventure, love, laughs, sex appeal and wonderful visuals ... albeit in my mind ;). I laughed, I cried and then laughed again. Isabel's writing ability is on point. Living In Sin is definitely one of the best and hottest stories that I have read in a while. I can honestly say that it is in my top 10 reads. I read a lot, so that is saying a lot. You will NOT be disappointed.
Goodreads - Jennifer Bush
This book was such an awesome read. I ABSOLUTELY loved it. The Author wrote a fun, erotic romance novel with a lively and lovable set of characters. There is rotating POV's in the book, switching flawlessly between Jace and Adrienne. The love scenes were (fan yourself) hot and steamy. The writing was spot on. I have nothing bad to say about this book what-so-ever.
Ladies, you have to come meet the highly paid male escort, Jace Jamison, in this first book of The Escort Series.
Goodreads - Lyndsey Wharton
Living In Sin is just WOW! Isabel Lucero spoils us with the beautiful Jace Jamison. I was hooked from the first page until the last and now I'm wanting more. Isabel Lucero brings together all of the characters beautifully, The story flows so well that you can't help but get lost in the action and Oh Boy there is plenty of that.This is a must read for anyone that loves erotic romance, It certainly has a different twist to what is out there at the moment.
Goodreads - Gretchen Purgason
This book is sexually charged and just flat out HOT!!!! The chemistry between Jace & Adrienne you feel from the moment they meet. I Love them!!!!! The way they treat each other is so respectful. Yes it's hot but it's also sweet and caring. They genuinely like each other. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It’s so amazing and hopefully it’s the first of several books. There are others in this same Escort company that make small appearances and I am anxiously awaiting their books too.
Goodreads - Tonya Nichols
If you love steamy romances but want something a little different in the story line, this book is a must have! The first chapter of the book is probably one of the hottest, steamiest things I have read, and I think I fell in love. Jace Jamison is a man who gets what he wants, when he wants, how he wants and the women who want him… pay him, because he is a male escort in Sin City. There are twist, turns, sex, sadness, anger, excitement, and happiness, this book has it all!

    Mama Mia!!!!! Man was I in for quite the surprise when I started

    Mama Mia!!!!! Man was I in for quite the surprise when I started reading Living In Sin!!!!!!!!!!!! Within the first couple of pages, my jaw was on the floor.
    My introduction to Jace was absolutely mind blowing!! I'm usually not into reading what went down in Chapter One, but hot damn!! The man is just....wow.

    Ok, so let's continue.

    Jace & Adrienne meet by chance. Adrienne's immediate attraction to Jace comes with much caution. She immediately puts him in the manwhore category (and she was kind of on point) but can't help the attraction she has to him.
    Jace charms his way into Adrienne's head (and pants) and all caution is thrown to the wind from there.

    Yes, there is drama. Yes, there are the funny friends included. Yes, there is SMOKING HOT SEX and my god...

    The premise of this lovely story is how "the one" can make you change your ways (in Jace's case) and how "the one" can teach you to forgive (Adrienne).

    I absolutely cannot wait for Troy and Emilie's story!!!!

    3.5 Stars After picking up my jaw off the floor from Chapter One

    3.5 Stars
    After picking up my jaw off the floor from Chapter One, I jumped right in.




    Jace is a male escort.  But he wants more-he wants it all.  With all of his hard work he is on the cusp when he meets Adrienne.




    Adrienne is unlucky in love and a bit jaded. When she meets Jace the attraction is immediate and strong.




    Together they are hot! But with the secrets and jealousy they just aren’t able to get it right.




    The storyline was a bit predictable.  Yet there were moments of brilliance that made this read enjoyable.  It is part of a series that will focus on each of the escorts.




    I was cracking up with the relationship between Adrienne and Emilie.  They’re fantastic.




    Thoughtful and sweet Jace and jealous, drunk Adrienne were also bright spots.




    Looking forward to Troy and Em’s story.

    I was lucky enough to be chosen by Isabel Lucero to receive an ARC of “Living in Sin”. It was amazing, if you love steamy romances but want something with a different back story, this book is a must have! The first chapter of the book is probably one of the hottest, steamiest things I have read, and I think I fell in love! Jace Jamison is a man who gets what he wants, when he wants, how he wants and the women who want him… pay him, because he is a male escort in Sin City (Las Vegas).

    Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy come true. He is gorgeous, sexy, wealthy and charming. While he is leaving one of his “jobs”, he spots beautiful woman who catches his eye. Adrienne is a beautiful event planner that has a semi-boring life. She tells her best friend Emilie about this beautiful man she has seen a couple of events but he is always with a different woman. She thinks he is a GLC (God-like creature) but has come to the conclusion that he is a player. As luck would have it,
    Em (who is hilarious and outgoing) run into Jace, Adrienne tries to steer clear, but Jace has other ideas.
    As the story goes on, you also get to meet the “guys”, Jace’s four friends, who are also escorts that are fun, witty, and have steamy, sexy stories as well. This face paced, erotic romance will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are twist, turns, sex, sadness, anger, excitement, happiness, and humor… this book has it all! You need to add this to your TBR list.
    ***And bonus… this is the first of the series. I can’t wait to read more about my favorite group of guys!

    This book was such an awesome read and I'm very thankful that I was one of the few ladies to get to read an ARC of Living in Sin. I've never read a book about male escorts before so I wasn't sure what to expect but I have to say, I ABSOLUTELY loved it. The Author wrote a fun, erotic romance novel with a lively and lovable set of characters. There is rotating POV's in the book, switching flawlessly between Jace and Adrienne. The love scenes were (fan yourself) hot and steamy. The writing was spot on. I have nothing bad to say about this book what-so-ever. 
    Ladies, you have to come meet the highly paid male escort, Jace Jamison, in this first book of The Escort Series. He is hot, tattooed, confident, rich and he's very skilled in bed. You will not be disappointed in this book!

    OH MY FREAKIN WOW!

    I absolutely LOVEDthis book. I instantly fell in love with the characters. Adrienne and Emmilie cracked me up. Their witty banter back and forth is hilarious. And the way Isabel describes the guys, they sound like sex on a stick. The sexual chemistry between Jace and Adrienne is off the charts HOT! They so obviously belong together. They're perfect together. All the sex is OH MY FREAKIN HOT!!! Wooooh give me a minute. Holy Mother of Hotness. The secondary characters in this story are such an essential part of making this story so special. I extremely recommmand this book to everyone and can't wait for the next book.

    There seems to be a lot of escort books coming our lately and I'll admit I'm an escort junky I love reading the dark and dirty books. In this one Jace is the escort (MALE ESCORT!!) and he is one fine piece of man. I absolutely LOVED the way the author described his attire and demeanor because it made it SO clear and sank in that he was sexy on legs. And he's hotter than H*ll between the sheets.. or anywhere else he happened to get his hands on a lady friend ;)
    Adrienne is a party planner and happened to see Jace a few times at her events, always with a different lady. She knew she didn't want to get near him when he was a player. But Jace is ever persistent about getting a chance with her. Turns out all he needs is a forgotten phone and he gets the chance he desires. 

    Absolutely wonderful book but be warned it is a longer novel but a really didn't feel like it was dragged out at any point.

    When I first read the synopsis to this book I thought to myself

    When I first read the synopsis to this book I thought to myself "this is a book for me!"Let me just start by saying Isabel Lucero didn't disappoint. She went well above what I expected out of this book. Walking away and looking back I would give this book well over 5 stars if I could.
    The entire story kept me engaged. I didn't want to put it down.
    When I started reading the first chapter I couldn't believe it started with a foursome! I was like holy hell! I was then afraid that the book would go downhill from that. I mean really coming out the gate with sex packed action? Where is there to go from there?
    Well let me tell you there is plenty to go from there! At the start of the book I found myself agreeing with Em. And that Adrianne should just use him for a booty call. (Who wouldn't want all that hotness from GLC?) But further into the book I felt myself rooting for the relationship to form and for it to become something other then just hot amazing sex.
    The same thing goes on with Em and Troy. Honestly their story line made me angry. I was like enough already just give it up to him. The teasing each other kind of got on my nerves and I felt their story was drawn out even though it never really went anywhere in the book. It was just the same thing over and over. But then at the very end of the book it all made sense so I am no longer mad. Just very excited.
    I found myself laughing at some of the conversations, because I could see myself and my friends talking the way Em and Adrianne did. It was like I was really there in their conversation. I love when an author can do that. I really enjoy books that draw me into the settings and make me feel a part of the story.
    The texts from GLC (Jace) and Adrianne were also funny, but they made perfect sense as it was coming from a real life point of view.
    My overall opinion of this book: Characters were wonderful. They were well written. They all worked together to form a great book. Each character showed their own characteristics, with back stories. I could easily imagine the characters in my mind while I read thanks to the description that was hinted at each character. The plot was great. I loved this story as it is one I could see happening in a real life setting. And I could also imagine the entire story in my mind while I was reading.
    So by all means run out and pick up this book or start clicking one of the links below to purchase the ebook. Set aside time before you start reading as this is one hot book you won't want to put down!  Review written for Swipe The Pages

    I loved it!! Oh, it was so steamy :) Jace is an escort, sexy and rich, Adrienne is an event coordinator, she is confident and sassy. Eventually, they fall for each other and things get more serious. Jace fears that when he tells her what he does, he will lose her.

    Living In Sin is definitely one of the best and hottest stories that I have read in a while. You will definitely not be disappointed. Really looking forward to the next book!

    I really wish there 1/2 stars so i could give this 4.5 stars...I read this in one sitting... 12-4am! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this book from start to finish. I loved the characters, the storyline was believable and the sex scenes were just enough to get you all hot and bothered. Another great falling in love story amidst the craziness of an escorts life. I would've rated it 5 stars but I thought at one point towards the end it should've ended but it kept going and not that it was bad because I was glad for the HEA...Now I'm anxious for book 2! :

    Adrienne is in the middle of a dry-spell. She hasn't hooked-up since her last relationship and she's just about going crazy. On a night out with her best friend, she meets Jace. She's instantly attracted to him, but she's seen him around town with a different woman every time. But although he's a player, she's in need so why don't scratch an itch and get him out of her system? Easier said than done. Jace is relentless in her pursuit of Adrienne and he won't stop until he has her heart too.

    Although happy with the money he has made as an escort, Jace is starting to feel the strain his job has on his life. He enjoys it, but he can't help but want something more now that he has his life and business in order. Especially once he spots Adrienne.

    This was a surprising good read. Isabel Lucero did an amazing job in drawing me into the story. Whew! That first look into Jace's life was kind of shocking, kind of amazing and mighty HOT! Yep, I was hooked!

    What started as something hot and exciting turned into a great romantic story of new beginnings and second chances in life. I loved the way the author mixed the humor, with the sensual and the sweet. Jace was a wonderful character to get to know. He had many sides and all of them were amazing. From the sweet man who went out of his way for a first date to the cocky, sexy man who made Adrienne melt with just a grin.

    Adrienne was fun too. I loved her outlook in life and understood where she was coming from. Strong and independent with a wild side she kept hidden, she was just what Jace needed. She brought his best traits to life and kept him on his toes, which I enjoyed. I loved their flirtatious banter, heated looks and their chemistry. Their connection was immediate, but the author made sure to develop and strengthen it as the story progressed.

    All in all, a hot little read with a couple of great characters and sizzling chemistry that will leave you wanting more. I will definitely be looking for more from this author. I am especially curious about Troy and Emilie's story!!!

    EXCELLENT - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE *******************************

    EXCELLENT - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE ********************************

    Category /Genre: Contemporary Romance
    Received from: Isabel Lucero (in exchange for an honest review)
    Recommended for: 18+ due to sexual content
    Grammar/editing: B – a few small errors – book received as an unedited ARC / errors excused

    Adrienne has seen the GLC (God-like creature) several times when she has been working her job as an event planner. Each time, he has a different woman on his arm. What she doesn’t know is that he is there working as well, as a highly-paid escort. A chance encounter leads to a night of passion, but Adrienne believes it will be just the one night. Jace Jamison is surprised to find himself desiring a woman beyond the appointments of his job. Can he convince Adrienne that he is not a player? Can he face her with the truth which may frighten her even more?

    I absolutely loved this story. It was a believable situation set in beautiful Las Vegas. The characters’ behaviors are realistic, for good and for bad. This was a page-turner and I found myself irritated when life kept intruding on my reading time. Next time Isabel releases a book, I’m locking myself in a room by myself and I pity the person who interrupts me. This is the first book in a new series and I am looking forward to the second.

    Please don't let what others do or had done overshadow the good.

    Please don't let what others do or had done overshadow the good.
    I adore this story. Finally! A decent escort plot that makes my heart get giggly at times. I love James and his overalls- the looks, kindness and sweetness. I also liked Adrienne's personality. She's a hard worker, a loving daughter and an independent woman. She knows what she wants. 

    The pulls and push between them is what get me hooked. Jace wanting to confess everything to Adrienne just to prove that he wants her more than anyone else. I also loved that Adrienne is straightforward and honest that she wants to be the only one and with Jace's job, she knows that she won't have it. 

    Thank you Isabel for a happy ending. Jace's decision made me love him even more. That's what true love is. When you found the right reasons to give up what you have now, even if it's wealth, you know it's the right one. Adrienne is the right one. And Adrienne being able to give people a second chance, first with Liam and then with Jace. Second lesson, you cannot move forward in life if you don't forgive. Last but not the least, never, ever judge people for what they do or what they have done. It will never define their future. The things that define your future are the decisions that they make in the present. Jace did the right thing and he gave him and Adrienne a happy future.

    This has yet to be released but I am already looking forward to Troy and Em's story
