Summary –

For fans of J. Kenner and Tracy Wolff, Laura Marie Altom’s heart-wrenching new Shamed novel features two broken-hearted lovers who fall for each other—one dangerous, sizzling encounter at a time.

When the woman he loves marries billionaire Liam Stone, Nathan Black swears off dating, constantly being broke, and playing by the rules. His new gig’s not exactly legal, but the cash will help him build a solid future. Then there’s Carol Moore, Liam’s personal assistant. She and Nathan always seem to get paired up at Stone family functions—and always seem to fall into bed together afterward . . . or even during. She’s the perfect rebound. So why does Nathan want more?

After Carol’s dreamy boss gets hitched, crushing any chance of them getting back together, she finds herself hooking up with the bride’s best friend. Nathan is hot, adventurous, and makes her feel even better than chocolate does. But when one of their sexy games reveals the presence of a relentless stalker, Carol discovers that Nathan has a dangerous secret. And before long Carol is forced to choose between her safe old life and the bad boy who makes her feel like the woman she’s meant to be.

My Thoughts –

Carol and Nathan were certainly steaming up the pages in The Escort.  For the most part, I really enjoyed this story.  At times the flow wasn’t there, but overall it was ok. 

Nathan, at times, could be a douche.  The lying, dude…stop with the lying.  ­­I just really wanted kick him in the junk every time he lied. peeve.   Carol was ok.  She took a risk and threw herself out there for a chance at love.

OK enough story to see how it ended.  I read it fairly quick and laughed out loud a few times.  Good job to the author, I look forward to more works from you!!
