Rating: 4 Cups
Trevor is a successful executive by day; by night he is a high priced prostitute. He provides pleasure to women who are unable to find a lover for themselves, or who prefer not to be involved. Unfortunately, one woman got too involved and Trevor ends up being charged with the murder of her husband.
Damien is Trevor’s business partner. He has not loved anyone since his fiancée died of an aneurysm at the altar. The business is getting old for him as well, especially since he met a client, Agnes, at a fundraiser and their relationship went from professional to personal.
A high priced male prostitute is accused of the murder of one of his clients’ husbands. The client is in a coma and cannot clear him. An old friend looks for support among his other clients; most of whom are uncooperative.
This is an interesting story. Trevor and Damien have no need to sleep with women for money. They both have successful careers and are handsome enough to attract any number of women. The author writes a hot love scene, but the real story is in Trevor’s wake-up call and in him re-evaluating his life. I really liked Claudette and Paige; both are very strong characters, and Paige refuses to feel sorry for herself, despite her scars. Marissa is pathetic, as is Sister Jenkins. One is trapped in a brutal marriage, but spends all her escape money on a prostitute; and the other feels superior to the women of her church, but has to pay a man to sleep with her. I also felt sympathy for Agnes; she really has valid reasons for her behavior but softens as her friendship with Damian progresses. Though the blurb is misleading, this story had me hooked and kept me reading until the end.
