Leah Godfrey has almost everything she could ask for— She’s got an interior design business with an A-list clientele, a weekly spot on a national morning TV show, and a great daughter—but she doesn’t have a date for her twentieth high school reunion. It wouldn’t be a big deal, but her ex-husband was her high school sweetheart, and now he’s married to the slut Leah caught him with in bed. She won’t let the biggest failure of her life overshadow her success. When her best friend suggests she hire a date, Leah thinks the idea is scandalous. But for one weekend, she wants to forget her mistakes and pretend she has everything her ex took away from her. Jagger Holiday makes women’s fantasies come true— But working as a male escort leaves him feeling empty. He turns to photography to fill the void. When Jagger gets a call from a lonely single mom who needs the same thing he does, he wants more. He wants her. Leah and Jagger have no problem convincing everyone at the reunion they’re together. She should’ve known better than to think there’d be no strings attached. After all,
he’s a professional.
A great light hearted romance read.
I really enjoyed this book which is the first in a new series by Kristen Strassel. The story is about single mum Leah and Jagger (who is a male escort). On paper this shouldn't work but I loved the characters together. I liked how the author made the characters come to life and it was easy to relate to them. The plot flowed well and had a good pace and there was plenty of steamy scenes thrown in throughout. I was hooked throughout the story and wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. The story ended at a good point for the characters but I look forward to reading more in the next book and I'll also be checking out other books by the author.
