Charlie Ashley, or Mr. Ashley as his clients know him, is a high-end male escort who gets paid thousands for whatever services his clients require. He’s lived the last ten years alone, not letting anyone in, enjoying his success and provocative lifestyle.
Allison Hayes has no idea the man she is falling in love with is a male escort. She connects with Charlie through their love of music, playing a taunting game asking herself if she loves him, hates him or if she is going to save him.
After meeting Allison, Charlie enters a world where everything he knows no longer makes sense, leaving him too scared to move forward, yet making it impossible to look back.
But can he give up his entire life for love?
Smashing debut novel from up and coming Indie author Lauren Runow. Charlie and Allison start on a road that will change both of their lives forever. Charlie, a high-end male escort, sees Allison, a student at a prestigious Art School, at a concert and becomes smitten by her. Just by happenstance he sees her again at coffee shop and things heat up from there.
I love this novel for so many reasons. First off, the setting, I know 90% of the places they went (Paris being the only exception, haven’t been there yet, oh and Crossfit, no clue what that is, lol). I know this is probably weird sounding but I like reading a book and saying “Hey I know where that is.” It makes me feel like part of the book in a way. Ok dorkiness aside. The author does a great job of helping the reader feel like they really are wherever Charlie and Allison are.
I loved the use of music in the novel. Music is an excellent way to convey what the characters could be thinking or feeling, in a way that is relateable to the reader. Most of the songs used are songs that I belt out every day in the car on my way to work. Let me tell you, the songs chosen fit the book very well.
This book is amazing. The interaction between the characters is well written and quite hilarious at times, especially between Allison and her sister. Oh and the drama of it all, by the time I was finished I was so shell shocked, I did not see any of that coming.
Overall this book is a blast to read, yes it does end on a cliff hanger but it is well worth it. I recommend this to all romance readers, over the age of 18 of course.
