Ms. McKenna has a way with words that it always unexpected, and very, very sexy. So while part of me read this book with trepidation – I didn’t want to hate Didier, as usual she went outside of the box and gave us insight into two very different people and made them three dimensional. If the character of Didier had just been written as a gorgeous male prostitute, for me he would still have attained a certain sleaziness. Ms. McKenna makes him warm, likeable, intelligent and yes, hot!
I can so empathize with Caroly, she wants her first time to be memorable, but it’s not simply that she is waiting for the ‘one’. She arranges it so that she can have sex on her own terms and with someone who not only knows what he’s doing, but is someone she feels she can never have as he is out of her league. Didier connects with her on more than just a physical level though. Didier is perfect fantasy lover fodder, he obviously loves women and appreciates them, and has an uncluttered very European attitude to sex. He is unapologetic about his occupation and it pleases him to be everything his clients need him to be.
I love the descriptiveness of the writing, it is impossible to not be drawn in and experience Didier along with Caroly. A great read for those who like their romance with substance as well as heat.
Caroly Evardt never expected to find herself patronizing a male prostitute. Then again, she never expected to be weeks from her thirtieth birthday and still a virgin.
When a friend mentions that a gorgeous male model in Paris sells his body as well as his image, Caroly’s intrigued. Finally, a chance to sample the gifts of a beautiful man—no strings, no stakes, no fear of rejection.
But she soon discovers that Didier Pedra amounts to more than a striking face and talented body. He’s a kind, charming, damaged man, and after a few evenings of pleasurable education, Caroly’s interest blossoms into something far deeper than mere lust. Her simple arrangement is suddenly feeling downright dangerous…
