Fabulous book! Clover is a great girl with a very busy life. She is a personal assistant to a very mean boss. Debra is constantly on her and making her work ungodly hours. At the last minute Debra decides to tell clover that she has to go to a big gala for the new photographer for the magazine and that she better have a date. Well Clover has no idea what to do. Her closest friend helps her out. Clover is such a hard worker for the magazine and so she has no time for a social life let alone meet any men. Taking her friends advice, she decides to take out the card she gave her and call the number. Not knowing exactly what to expect when he comes to pick her up for the event, she is very nervous. Do you think this will all work out for Clover or blow up? Clover is just not sure that that anyone will believe that a man as hot as Damon would ever date her. How will this little arrangement she has going with him work out? With the suspense and twists n turns, you must read to find out! i was gifted this book for a honest review
My Escort was a great Romance read. The characters really made you feel within there hearts as the words bleat off the page. The characters gave you a since of an airiness and appeal. Clover was likable from the start because of her bubbling attitude. Damon was a guy that charmed his way into your heart! Can we say Hot! I did find myself craving more of those hot scenes like experienced in the end. This is not an easy task with me especially with first person POV. Not many authors can pull that off but, Kia did it exceptionally well. I did find myself at the end saying where's the rest! lol. I'm not the basic Romance fan but found myself intrigued from front to end. I'm so hoping there's another soon because this book was refreshing indeed. Through out the book it expresses Kia's personality which sort of let's you see into her heart. This is a book I will read the next one of. Oh but watch out for that Boss from hell she's got a bite. Yes it was a light romance romance that kept you with a smile. That's kind of nice for a change.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review and boy am I happy I did. My Escort is about a young professional woman who works hard and has little down time. She also has a boss from HELL. My Escort is Kia Carrington-Russell's first venture into writing adult books and in my opinion she did extremely well. She doesn't venture into the bedroom much but does peek inside the character's heads. What I loved most about Kia's writing is how right out of the gate I hated Clover's boss Debra. I also was immediately rooting for Clover from the first word. She did such a great job setting up the characters that I felt connected to them and couldn't put the book down. Page after page was written well and in depth where you just couldn't stop reading. Don't even get me started on Damon. Can I please have one of him? He is a very strong yet sensitive individual. As believe me when I say he is perfect in every way. I can only guess as to whether or not there will be a book 2 but you can believe that I will be at the front of the line to preorder that one. :)
Very good read, loved it! What happens when your boss who dislikes you tells you that you need to bring your boyfriend to an event but you don't have one. Well you call the Escort and that's when the fun begins. Clover is stuck in a job that she likes, though she'd prefer to be a travel writer, but has the boss from hell. When she calls a number and hires a "boyfriend" for the night she gets more than she expected. The story takes you on a ride that makes you laugh out loud and wonder what will happen next because Clover is very take charge and well Damon can be also. Do they get together? Well read and find out because it's not a they met and are now a couple at the beginning book. I received this as a gift.
High pressure, high fashion and a boss who is a merciless tyrant who love making life miserable, almost sounds like a modern day fairytale, and maybe it is for Clover. Instead of a fairy godmother and a glass slipper, Clover hires an escort for a posh business/social event. Damon’s job is to act like her boyfriend, not too cutesy, just attentive, hot and caring. He definitely has hot down pat, as every woman in the place, including Clover’s boss fawn over him. Still things aren’t going as smoothly as Clover had hoped and the quiet banter, taunting and teasing between Damon and Clover seems far more than their intended business relationship. Talented and smart, Clover has been held back from her full potential at work and it takes a few comments from Damon to open her eyes to the fact that Clover is going nowhere in a hurry. Damon is holding back several more eye opening tidbits, but when he does a slow and drawn out reveal and Clover is mysteriously offered the position of a lifetime for her magazine’s biggest competitor, things don’t go as planned. Can you say comedy of errors? Oops? Clover didn’t see that one coming? What follows is humorous, warm and a little heartbreaking as the man with the velvet voice rubs Clover raw with his misguided intentions. Has the clock struck twelve on any chance for love between these two? My Escort by Kia Carrington-Russell is sweet, light and delightfully enchanting. If you just happen to need a romance that is built gently and a little clumsily, just like the real world, here it is. There is no over-blown drama, no over-detailed and dark feeling, just two people a comedy of errors and some great escape reading.
