Emma Bell is a librarian and recently broke up with a guy who abused her. All she wants to do is get control of her own life again. Every day Emma goes into a coffee shop to get her usual tea order and waits until He enters...her "pretend" boyfriend! One day he orders, looks at Emma, then drops his business card into a glass jar and leaves. Emma takes this card to find out who he is and that's when the real fun begins.
Gavin Kingsley is President and co-owner of Forbidden Desires, a high end escort service. He knows he shouldn't be attracted to the sweet girl he sees every day at the coffee shop, but he couldn't help it. He left his business card hoping she would take it and make the next move. Imagine his surprise when Emma shows up at his office! The receptionist thinks she is there to interview for the open escort position and brings her to Gavin's office. Gavin's brother, Cooper is also there. Both guys are immediately drawn to her. Gavin is dark and mysterious while Cooper is open and friendly. Cooper knows about Gavin's past and his hidden secrets and he is very curious about his brother's obvious attraction to this girl so he sets his brother up to hire her to be their personal escort. Of course Emma didn't come to the office for this job but she could use the money to fix up her grandma's old house so she agrees to their proposition.
The attraction between Gavin and Emma was so obvious and I just loved the way Cooper played that up, taunting his brother! Things progress quickly between Gavin and Emma and things seem to be great until Emma finds out about Gavin's hidden secret!
This book ends on a cliffhanger and I can not wait until I get my hands on the next one! I could not put this book down. I just loved Emma...she was nice and sweet but she was also getting control of her life again and was a little ballsy at times. Gavin is an alpha with a tortured soul...everything that makes for a perfect romance! Great start to a new series!
