I’m selling your fantasy. Are you buying?

They say that love is the most powerful force in the universe. They’re wrong. Sex, lust, passion, these are the emotions which human beings crave. And they’ll spend any amount of money for a taste.

I’m the guy that makes your heartbeat rise with a look, your breath falter with a touch. It’s my job. My name is Thor Jameson and I’m a male escort. No, I’m THE male escort. My reputation is unrivalled and well deserved.

I’ve always been for sale, until the one thing I didn’t even realise I wanted was thrust in my face by chance. For once, I’m not selling, and she’s certainly not buying.

I’m selling your fantasy. Are you buying?

Thor the first installment in the Recherche series based on several different high-end escorts in London. Now, I'll admit right off the bat that I'm a bit of an escort whore. The whole premise to me is so naughty but NICE. So when I saw LP Lovell decided to wrap her writing brain around steamy sexy escorts, I kinda flew into reading it!

Thor Jameson is the owner of Recherche. He's tall, dark, and tattooed. His client list is almost never changing because, let's face it, one time is never enough with him. So when he's approached to fill in as a fake boyfriend at a wealthy local wedding, he was initially hesitant. Albeit easy cash, spending hours on end pretending to be some mousy chick's boyfriend for the "show factor" doesn't rank as something high on his fun things to do list. But against his better judgment, he accepts. Except he's soon told the "girlfriend" he's supposed to court doesn't know he's an escort. When he sets eyes on the girl in question, Poppy, he's quick to jump on the job.

Poppy Whitely would love anything to not attend her sister's wedding but when she meets her "blind date" for the night, she's anxious to get in his pants show her sister she's not the mousy little ginger everyone treats her like...

This was one quick and dirty little number! And the author said it's the most tame? Wowsa! Thor was the perfect blend of romance and steam. Of taking a guy that's never saw beyond selling his body for pleasure and finding for once, he's interested in a woman- would himself pay to be with her. We also get a nice introduction to all the future escorts whose love stories are yet to be told...Kaden, Xavier, Maddox and Cora. And yes, Cora is a female escort! 

This book is a quickie almost novella and perfect to slip in (pun intended) between maybe heavier or longer reads. Because it's sort of a novella size, I kind of missed the depth of background we get for the MCs. Clearly Poppy has familial issues and I'd love to have gotten her backstory.

Looking forward to the next installment in the Recherche series!
