It isn’t Jade Talmage’s idea to accept her daughter’s offer to hire and escort for the hospital gala. But the absence of her brother paul – her usual companion – leaves her with no choice.
Enter Zachary Cooper, one-third owner of Cooper’s Companions, a professional escort company. Despite his good looks and sex appeal that make her hormones scream, Jade has no intention of being the next in a long line of the rent-a-stud’s conquests.
A weekend of mind-blowing sex has Jade’s heart crumbling. Zach is exactly the type of man she wants in her life. Yet she’s sure a relationship with a man ten years her junior would lead to nothing but heartache.
Zach doesn’t care that Jade is older than he. He wants a lifetime with the woman he’s fallen for so desperately. All he has to do is convince Jade that he’s much more than a rent-a-stud… he’s the man who loves her.
This was a fun, hot read that moved at a nice pace through a burgeoning relationship. I liked the concept of an older woman with a younger man who thinks she is the hottest woman in the world. Every woman should have a man who thinks the sun rises because of her. It made me smile and eventually made me sigh.
Zachary Cooper loves his job! No really, he does, and who wouldn’t love escorting beautiful, appreciative women around on the town. As part owner of Cooper’s Companions, the premier escort service in town, he has a job every man envies. He is perfectly content to continue wooing women and leaving when they’re both satisfied. That is, until he meets Jade. Suddenly, his life doesn’t seem to be so satisfying. What’s a stud to do?
Jade Talmage doesn’t think that a rent-a-stud is the answer to her problems. All she needs is a date for one night, nothing else. Her daughter convinces her to hire and escort for one evening. The moment she sees Zach at her door, her hormones go on high alert and she’s hard-pressed to keep her hands to herself. When she gives into her desires and indulges in a very hot weekend with the sexy younger man, she finds he heart is involved much quicker than she would like.
These two are an interesting contrast. The younger man who thought he was content to remain single and older woman who thinks that she would not be an asset to a younger man. I had a great time reading this story, and getting to know these characters. We run the gamut of emotions, between pure bliss and just wanting to smack the characters for not seeing what’s right in front of their faces. It’s very satisfying when we finally get our Happily Ever After and two people who are very much in love realize that life is much more satisfying when shared with someone else. I would recommend this book and I am definitely looking forward to reading the stories of the other characters I was introduced to in this tale. Highly entertaining and a great read.
