4 Star Review by Lisa Kane

Mia needs a change. she's in her mid twenties and she's in a rut. Oh, and did I mention that she's also a virgin? She's had a couple of fumbling attempts to lose her V- card but nothing has panned out. But she has a plan. Two years ago, her brother Harry (the two of them are as close as siblings can get) let it slip over Christmas cocktails that his best friend Matt Quinn was busy servicing one of his dates. Her curiosity piqued, it didn't take long for Mia to track down all the dirty details about Matt's servicing skills. Seems he's an escort at DTF, a hunk for hire service. Mia had a brief encounter with Matt and was pretty god smacked by the Adonis look alike. This is the guy she is planning on giving her virginity to and sets her plan in motion.

Mia reaches out to Quinn (his "service" name) via email. She may lack self esteem, (she was once overweight and a little frumpy) but there is a certain appeal in her shyness and that is what ultimately caught Quinn's attention. He's been with hundreds of women and it's the shy ones that he prefers. He is intrigued by Maya  (the name she uses in her emails with him. He has no idea that this is the little sister of his best friend Harry. All he knows about her is that she has moved back to the same city where they both live, she has a new apartment and she's about to start a new job.

I'd met her once, at a Christmas party hosted by their family five years earlier, but since I was caught up in my own bullshit, I'd had so much to drink that most of the night was a blur. 

Their emails start out innocently enough and then the heavy, flirty banter comes into play. Mia feels guilty, because she knows if Harry knew what his Minnie (his nickname for her)  was up to he would go ape shit. But Quinn shows a vulnerable side to her and the two make plans for their first "date". They begin to rely on their texts and soon it becomes phone calls. No matter how lousy their day is, a couple of minutes spent talking with the other seems to do the trick. But lines are starting to get crossed and Quinn isn't getting the same satisfaction from his work as he used to. He finds himself thinking about Maya at the most inopportune times.

Will they hit it off when they finally come face to face? Can Mia ever tell Quinn who she really is? Will Quinn ever want to leave the escort business?

"I promise you, Maya, the best sex is always dirty and messy and shocking. That's the kind of sex that stems from passion. It's incredible."

I'm not usually a fan of escort romances, but this one had the right combination of humor, and wit and sex. There's always that fantasy about these kinds of stories-the guy's had hundreds of women and yet one in particular brings him to his knees, and not just to get down to business. There was a strong chemistry between them, Mia may have been innocent sexually, but she is no shrinking wallflower. She excels at her job, is one smart cookie and has had life slap her around a bit. Quinn is suave and worldly and yet he is no jerk. He had his reasons for living the life he chose and he makes no apologies for it. Their connection is believable and the story works. There are some fantastic secondary characters-particullary Harry, Mia's brother. He has had a colorful past himself and had his heart shattered. I'd love to see him get his HEA too. Besides, he give great advice:

Don't make a man a priority if he only makes you an option.
