Blog Tour: Living In Sin by Isabel Lucero

Title: Living in Sin
Author: Isabel Lucero
Released: January 1st
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.
But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.
Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.
After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?
Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.
When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

  It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve had the best sex of my life. I thought fucking him would settle a craving, and I’d be good to go for a while. Instead, it awakened a sexual beast that I had living inside of me. It’s all I think about now.

I want it.

I need it.

I fantasize about Jace and his huge hands doing wonderful things to my body. I can still remember the way his tongue felt as he slid it into my pussy, and the warmth of his mouth as his lips encircled my clit. I was sore for days. My entire body ached from the pounding he gave me. I’ve used my fingers and my vibrator, and neither one will do. I crave his body like a pregnant woman craves pickles and ice cream.

How can I tell him that I want to use his body for my own pleasure? What would I even say to him? I’ve never had to chase after a guy. I haven’t asked anybody out on a date, haven’t initiated the first kiss, and certainly haven’t asked anybody if they want to be fuck buddies. I just can’t do that. Plus, I have no idea how to get ahold of him. I only know where he lives, and I definitely won’t be showing up to his suite like some sort of stalker psycho.

I groan and force myself to get out of bed. Before I make it to the bathroom, my phone vibrates on my nightstand. It’s Em.


“Wake up, we have plans,” she says excitedly.

“Ugh. No. I can’t deal with your happiness right now.”

“Too bad. Get up because we have places to be.”

“How come I never know about our plans until the last minute?”

“I don’t know. I’m on my way over. It’s already ten, so stop being a lazy bum.”

The phone clicks and I go use the bathroom, brush my teeth, and pull my hair into a messy bun on top of my head. I put on some shorts, flip flops and a white tank top. By the time I’m dressed, I hear Em banging on the door like she’s the cops.

“Hey! Why are you trying to break my door down?” I say as I pull the door open.

She gives me a shrug. “I thought maybe you had gone back to sleep, so I was prepared to wake you up.”

“Well, I proved you wrong. I’m ready and everything, see?” I say, extending my arms and showing her that I’m dressed.

She eyes me with a disgusted look on her face. “If that’s what you call ready. It doesn’t matter anyway. We’re going to go get pampered. Nails, hair, waxing.”

“Waxing?” I say, interrupting her. “I think I’ll pass. Last time you convinced me to get waxed, my hoo-ha was sore for days! No thank you.”

“Stop being so dramatic,” she laughs. “I’m sorry. Last time the chick was new. This time, it won’t be the same one. I promise. We need to go get prettied up, go out to dinner with these two, hopefully-not-lame bitches, and then hit a club up and find some sexy men to dance with. That’s the plan.”

She says the last part with finality, flips her hair over her shoulder and walks towards out door.

“I guess I could use a few drinks,” I say, following her down the hall.

“Still not over the king?” she asks with a laugh.

“Oh shush,” I say, playfully pushing her.

“Hell, from what you told me, I wouldn’t be over him either. I’d be scaling the building trying to get to him.”

A loud and embarrassing laugh escapes my throat. A few people nearby all turn and look in our direction. Ignoring the stares, I continue to laugh. “Oh my gosh, Em. You’re too much. I picture you climbing the building like Spiderman and shit. Oh God, that’s too funny,” I say, unable to stop my laughter.

“You think I’m playing. I’d be camped out on that balcony waiting to pounce him.” She lets out a small laugh at herself. “I think you’re crazy for not wanting to be with him again. You said yourself he was amazing in bed…and huge! It’s not like you’re getting any elsewhere.” She gives me a pointed look.

“Well, thanks for reminding me,” I say and roll my eyes. “I don’t know what you think I’m supposed to do. I don’t have his number, and showing up to his place would be desperate and sad. I won’t do that.”

Emilie lets out a dramatic sigh. “Whatever. Guess you’ll have to find you another man tonight. He probably won’t be God-like, or be as good in bed, or have a huge…”

“Okay!” I say, interrupting her sentence. “I get it. Let’s just go.”

Review by Karen

When you think of the word “sin”, what comes to your mind? The words prohibited, illicit, and even temptation pop into your head at the mention of the word “sin”. How about Las Vegas? Sin City, right? You have heard the slogan “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”. Well, that is the setting for the first book in a new series, Living in Sin, The Escort Series by Isabel Lucero.
We are introduced to Jace, a tall, dark and gorgeous man walking into one of the casino bars. He exudes confidence, both in his appearance and nonchalance attitude, when approaching women. We learn this is what Jace is paid for. He is a handsome stranger that makes women feel beautiful and special. They are living out a fantasy, for a night of sin.

Jace is tired of the business. He has been a high end escort for years and has a sizable bank account to show for the many ladies he has spent time with. His dream of opening a night club with some friends is on the horizon. Then he sees her. Adrienne is a beautiful woman, whom he now has to meet. Unfortunately, he is on a date with a client and cannot spend the amount of time pursuing Adrienne that he would have liked. Plus, he realizes most women run in the opposite direction, once they learn what his job really is.

Adrienne is quick to judge and has a hard time with trust. Her last relationship ended badly when her boyfriend tried to cheat on her, with her best friend. Then she meets, sex on a stick, Jace. The God like creature is the most gorgeous man she has ever seen and the attraction is instantaneous. But she has seen him around town, with a different girl EVERY time. How can she compete with that and who really wants to date a player. Maybe for one night of passion yes, but not a relationship.

One night of passion is just what they both get! He is the most amazing lover she has ever had and fear and insecurity make her run from the apartment. Can this be real, the attraction and the sweetness Adrienne feels and sees from Jace? Will Adrienne stay if she finds out the truth about Jace’s job and how he earned his fortune? Will they accept the attraction, stay together and fight for what everyone is really looking for? What we crave, the love and a connection to another soul, who understands and accepts you, your flaws and past.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and had a hard time putting it down. This is a HOT, I repeat HOT read with several scenes that can make you squirm in delight. I highly recommend Living In Sin.

 Interview with Isabel

1. What are your ambitions for your writing career?
 I just want to be able to keep writing books, and keep finding people who want to read them, and who fall in love with them. As long as there are people out there who love what I write, I'm happy! 

 2. What writer (s) inspire you?
 I love Karina Halle, Tiffany Snow, and Aleatha Romig. They are brilliant writers! 

3. What motivated Living in Sin and how did you researched the world of male escorts?
 My husband, actually. Haha. I don't remember what was said exactly, but I know he mentioned something about escorts. As soon as that happened, I knew I'd have a hell of an opening scene and then went from there. I looked up different escort companies, and just googled, googled, googled. I found some helpful information, but really, I just made up my own story. 

 4. What was the hardest scene to write in this book?
 At first I had trouble with the scenes with just the guys. I wanted to make sure they came off as guys, and not feminine or anything based on how I wrote them. 

5. What topic do you refuse to write about?
I haven't thought about it, really. I don't think I'd be a good paranormal writer, though. 

 6. Where do you see yourself as a writer in a year?
I hope to just get better and better. I hope to have a few more books under my belt, and to have gained a loyal group of readers. 

7. What is something that readers don't know about your main characters?
 Hmm. I think they know everything there is to know about them at this point. If anything new comes up, then it may be released in the other escort books.
