What would you do to improve your life?
Twenty-one-year-old Serena Thomas is faced with a tough decision. Unable to get ahead of debt and loneliness since her grandmother’s death she finds a new job, placing the sheltered virgin in an underground escort business. She tells herself it’s just a temporary life choice, but destiny has a different plan. She meets a mysterious and gorgeous man, who happens to be her new boss. Will Serena fit in or will she be left all alone again?
Lincoln (aka: Linc) Jefferson has an unusual life. He established The Lounge, an exclusive escort club for very personal reasons. A place where the women say who, when, and what type of sex they’re willing to have. The escorts possess all the power and the money. It’s a business Linc guards at all costs. Trying to maintain the secrecy is a constant challenge and one that’s tested when he enters into a relationship with Serena. She tempts him unlike any woman, even though he’s surrounded by beauty on a daily basis. The more time they spend together the harder it is for him to keep his secrets. Will Serena stand by his side or will she abandon him?
Sparks and passion fly, taking these two on a journey neither could have expected.

As soon as I sat down, my hands coasted across the soft leather. Just like I’d imagined a cloud would feel. When I looked up, Linc stood in the same place. The blackness of his suit reminded me of a panther’s coat, and the man—observing his meal.
He crossed the room and sat next to me, the cushion sinking with his weight and tilting me closer to him. His left leg lined with mine, thigh to heel. He extended an arm along the top of the couch and laid his fingertips along the crease of my neck, brushing them up and down.
Millions of tingles raced over my spine.
His other warm hand took possession of my upper thigh, and he skimmed his thumb back and forth across my clenched legs, creeping upward.
As my dress moved higher and into no man’s land, I gripped his wrist and squeezed hard. His fingers stilled at the edge of my panties, making me clench, and the movement on my neck ceased mid-stroke.
“W-what are you doing?”
Beautiful cover that is catching to the eye! At first this book kind of threw me off. However, as I started to read more into it the story became more involved and made a passionate sweet sence. You have Serena who has had to give up her dream and life threw a curve ball in her family life even though she did everything right. So when by chance she seems to get a way out she jumps for that one fresh breath of air, I couldn’t blame her I would have too in t situation probably. Linc, is owner of a unique escort service as in the escorts make the rules. This is one that I think is as it should because they are only doing things they feel comfortable and not forced to. I enjoyed how the author decided to add this into the book. When these two meet the chemistry is there but one problem lies between them, who will give in? And when they finally do it was very intense! The author brought an innocent women and an experienced man and showed how one can work things out by patience! Will jealousy and demons of the past cause a rift between what these two have? This could have been a little longer but I can see why the author wanted to leave us in suspense and keep the secret for the second book. Trust me you will definitely get some twist once you read this one!
