Full of hot scenes and interesting characters, this is a super romance sprinkled with a bit of comedy that will hold your interest to the end. Lilly Peters is an intern who has paid her way through school herself. When her grandmother becomes ill, Lilly has to find the extra money needed for her care. She hears through the hospital grapevine that working as a high class call girl can bring in lots of money, so she jumps at the chance. Her call girl career started as a means to an end, but she finds she enjoys having sex for money along with all the extras her men give her. Everything is fine until some of the other escorts are roughed and no one seems to know why. Even though she’s in danger, Lilly is hesitant to give up all the perks that come with her new, more affluent lifestyle. Things get worse and she’s faced with the choice of keeping her dream of becoming a doctor or continuing to have sex for money. You’ll be surprised by her decision. She certainly was!
LJ’s writing style is fluid (yes, that too!) and floats from page to page with the sharing of a fantasy likely many women share. She has created a story so natural that it all seems perfectly feasible that an ER physician could become a professional escort.
But before the detail, the story line: ‘Lilly Peters is a doctor by day and an escort by night. She was on her own at a very young age and had to put herself through Medical school, but when her grandmother took ill she needed money for her care. She had heard through the hospital Intern grapevine about being an escort for very rich influential men and jumped at the chance. What she didn’t know was how much she would enjoy having sex for money. She liked her men to give her gifts… and guess what? They did! Everything was going at an easy pace when some of the other escorts were roughed up pretty bad and no one seemed to why. By this time she had changed her lifestyle from second-rate to first –rate. She loved her luxurious condo and outstanding wardrobe and the fact that she could pay all her bills and still have money in the bank. She was financially secure but very unhappy. As things got worse and one of her favorite lovers was murdered she had to make a choice. Would she go back to her dream of becoming a great doctor or choose having sex for money?’
LJ obviously has a great time writing her short romantic mysteries and she adds enough steam and spice to make them soar. Grady Harp, October 17
