Product Description

"You said you wanted normal, Gabe. Riley is your normal."

After nearly ten years of moonlighting as a professional escort, Gabriel Maddox is good at giving women the forbidden pleasures they crave. They don't need to know that something inside of him dies a little each time he does it or that his desperate need for cash is the only reason he can't walk away. They just need to know that to get what they want, they have to play by his rules.

Riley Sinclair is starting over. She's left dry, dusty Texas and her ultra conservative, fanatically religious parents and cheating, mean-spirited fiancé behind for a new life in Seattle. But one look at her stunningly gorgeous new neighbor Gabe brings back all the insecurities she's trying to escape.

Gabe can only offer Riley pleasure but when she discovers that his perfect outside hides something terribly broken on the inside, will she risk her heart to give him what he needs?

Trigger Warning: This book contains references to abuse that may be disturbing for some readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome author 12 November 2016

I original had not thought about buying this book right away until I hit book 4 in The Protectors series and realized that character in the Barretti series are in that series and when I went to purchase the Barretti series I saw that those guys are first introduced in this series. I am extremely anal about buying books in series and reading them in order so of course I then had to buy this series also and even though I just started book 4 in the Protectors series I needed to go to the beginning and read all of these books. I loved this book just as much as the Protectors series that I have read. I am looking forward to reading all the rest of these stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick, enjoyable and sexy read ... sometimes, that's what I'm in the mood for! 22 March 2015
By Linda - Published on

This book really surprised me! I had gotten it for free so didn't expect too much but I started / finished in one sitting and am now looking forward to the next one in the series.

The plotline is pretty basic ... Tortured / damaged Hero meets kind-hearted and unassuming heroine. Our Hero, Gabe, is your typical tattooed, broody, Alpha bad boy who is controlling in bed. He is a construction worker by day and a professional escort by night. His clients like him for his dominant personality and how he treats them with little-to-no affection. Not that he beats them up or weird stuff like that, but he gives them exactly what they want with no emotional connection, and that's the way he likes it. He thinks that he is wired to be that way with any woman, not just his clients, but little does he know ...

One day, he gets a new neighbor, Riley, who just moved from Texas to Seattle. Riley has left behind her conservative parents and an ex-fiance in Texas, all of whom treated her like crap. She found her fiance cheating on her and he hit her, she left, and now needs to fly under the radar because he may / may not be looking for her. This part of the plot wasn't fleshed out too well, but it is a shorter-than-average book so I understand the glossing over of certain details. Didn't really take away from my enjoyment of the book.

The story is basically about Gabe struggling to continue in his career as an escort - his reasons for having to do this are explained in the book, and it's not because he's a horndog - and the growing relationship between Gabe and Riley. We are also introduced to some interesting secondary characters - namely, Logan and Shane, two friends of Gabe who are also escorts and who will obviously be getting their own stories later on. There is plenty of angst in the book, quite a few descriptions of schmexy time, and yes, an HEA for the couple at the end. No cliffhanger!

I get it ... this isn't going to be a classic and this isn't going to be a book club selection anytime soon. However, it is a nice, quick, sexy read if you are someone who likes ...

1) Tortured hero with alpha characteristics
2) Kind-hearted heroine who is not a knockout beauty but is a good person
3) An interesting storyline that comes with a few twists and turns, so while the HEA may be predictable, the events that lead up to it may be surprising
4) Descriptions of sexy times don't bother you, and you are looking for a quick read with interesting sex scenes but still with a storyline that keeps you engaged

I admit .. I wish some parts of the plot were fleshed out more. If the author were to add another 100 pages or so to the story, for instance, we could have gotten more re: the history (and aftermath) of Gabe and his mother; Riley and her parents and fiance; what happened after Gabe revealed his "secret" and how he and Riley cope; more background on both Gabe and Riley personally. However, even without these details, the book was still a pleasure to read. Sometimes, we just need a book that is quick and easy to read, but still interesting and engaging enough so we don't feel like complete dopes, but also will make us hot with descriptive sex scenes. This is such a book. There are some grammatical / spelling errors but nothing too awful. I suggest you give this book a try ... .you may be pleasantly surprised like I was. I certainly look forward to more from this author!
5.0 out of 5 stars Words Can't Express... 24 March 2015

Words can't express how much this book got to me! Oh wow! I did not expect such a deeply emotional, troubling and touching story. This truly proves you can't judge a book by it's cover. Because the cover is HOT and the title has your mind already imagining all sorts of steamy scenes. The book is indeed hot and steamy, but it is sooooo much more than that.

Gabe is such a troubled and tortured soul and had a horrible life as a child - some things you just can't wrap your mind around because it's inconceivable. His past really and truly shaped the man he became and the issues he had with women and relationships and his need for control. Riley and Gabe found each other at a time when they needed the each other the most. In addition to Gabes issues, Riley was running from things in her recent past as well.

The story line was great, I cried like a baby when details of Gabes' life was revealed. In addition to the story being strongly emotional, there was definite chemistry - immediate attraction - and the sex scenes were hot and amazing. I most definitely recommend this book and I will be on pins and needles waiting for the next book in this series!

I loved the characters and the story but it was a little insta love. I would have liked a bit more build in getting to know each other. Still worth picking up.
5.0 out of 5 stars once started, could not put this book down... 11 April 2015

Had so much fun reading this book. Once I started reading could not put it down.
Riley and Gabe were well thought out characters and their back story's compelling.
The steamy parts were very steamy.
Will look forward to the next book in this series.
