Review: I love nothing more than for a comfortable story to come my way. And when I heard about this story and saw what it was about, I had to get it. It is the fifth in a series and I don’t recommend you read this book series out of order. I don’t know what it is about this book but it is alluring and interesting. Once I started reading it, I found Ryan to be smooth and well written. He knows how to take care of his clients. And he soon learns what they look for. Patrick is the client and he knows what he wants. And when he comes across Ryan, he finds himself unable to stop staring. Thank god for having Ryan as his escort.

The story is hot, fluid, and sensual. Amazing, sexy. This story is so worth it. And it is well priced too. I would highly recommend this story to those that like hot romances that don’t cross too far into the other side of romance. I would highly recommend it and say that it is best to read this series in order.

Blurb:The sequel to Amber Allure’s best-selling The Escort: On the Menu

As a professional escort, Ryan James’ job is to service his clients, be it simply to accompany them somewhere socially or to provide more intimate services.

Ryan is accustomed to having control of every situation. Smart, sexy, and intuitive, he gives his clients what they want before they know they want it. When he meets Trevor Hilquist, however, Ryan is thrown off-stride. Trevor’s a puzzle, the complete opposite of what Ryan expected. The man likely spelled his name T-R-O-U-B-L-E, and Ryan doesn’t know exactly where to start.

Trevor’s smitten. Not only has his uncle arranged for an evening’s entertainment, but also his escort is just too scrumptious for words. He sizes up Ryan as a man who likes to lead, then formulates a plan. And before the night is over, he’ll have Ryan giving him exactly what he wants—hard, fast, and repeatedly.

Review: What did just happen? I started reading, I kept reading, I even finished reading, yet that question still remains along with her close friend “I don’t get it”.

Picking up another instalment of this series I seriously hoped that Ryan’s adventures would be getting better, because let’s just face it; I’m a sucker for rent-boys. Everything starts nicely, our high-class escort gets a job turning a favour for one of his friends and agreeing to escort a rich young man for the weekend. So enter Trevor. This kid is a surprise, a nine-inch one, and he’s a bit energetic, full of life, and fun. So, he’s getting an escort and can’t wait to get his hands on him…

And here lies the crux of the matter. Ryan, for some reason I still can’t get, went from paid whore to hard-to-get damsel and if he could have worn, a chastity belt I’m pretty sure he would’ve. And I don’t get it! Why on earth did he protest so much? What did Trevor do exactly that wasn’t proper…? How did Trevor get to be trouble…? He was being paid nicely for showing Trevor a nice time. What the heck did he have in mind for crying out loud?

I just didn’t get the plot, at all. I sat there, I read it, I even re-read it to be sure, and I still don’t get it. I’d like to say that the carnal part was so mind-blowing that I forgot all about the plot and lost myself in the smut, but I can’t do that either. A public interaction on a dark park might have triggered the pervert in me, but it was all so hollow that it failed terribly to evoke any reaction.

Overall, I was hoping for more, for at least the plot – if there must be one – to make sense. Because damn, I liked Trevor, I didn’t get why Ryan would turn his nose the other way at him. I’m still wondering…
