Book Tour: Living in Sin by Isabel Lucero

Title: Living in Sin
Author: Isabel Lucero
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publication Date: January 1, 2014

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

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?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*
*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

I started reading this book and thought that it was pretty interesting, there are not too many books out there from a male escort POV. Fast forward a few pages and BANG!!! Holy mother of goodness!!! What comes next took me by surprise and it was just hot, lustful actually, and when that scene was all over it left me wanting more.
Jace Jamison is charming and sexy with a heart of gold, and he comes from a broken home. His mom did everything she could to give him and his brother a good life, but when his brother is killed, their lives changed forever and he has to assume the responsibility of head of household since his mom falls into a depression. Through a little research he finds out about being an escort and moves to Vegas where he starts doing just that. Money is good and seven years later he’s still doing it but after putting himself through college and investing wisely, he realizes money is not everything and his life’s still missing something.
Adrienne has a pretty good life, a fulfilling career as a party planner and an amazingly fun best friend. She broke up with her boyfriend 8 months ago and since then she hasn’t been out with anyone let alone have sex.
On different occasions she’s seen Jace with different women and labels him a man whore. After a few briefs encounters her best friend, Emilie, convinces her to take a leap of faith and have some fun with the GLC (God like creature.)
They have a steamy night of passion and Adrienne disappears until life brings them back together. They talk and socialize but Jace doesn’t reveal to Adrienne his line of work. Is she strong enough to deal with Jace’s secret? Would she be ok with his career choice? Most importantly, can she trust him?
The chemistry these two share is, for lack of a better word, erotic, but is also full of kindness and respect for each other.
This book to me is about the redemption of Jace, an incredible man who, due to life terrible circumstances, have to do what he can in order to survive. And also, about Adrienne, the woman strong enough to understand him and support him. It is truly a beautiful story, yeah, there are very steamy sex scenes but they complement the story instead of becoming the main point. The main characters are well developed and have soul, the secondary characters are interesting and a refreshing addition to the story. I think Isabel has a real winner on this book and I can’t wait to read the next one on this series. Highly recommended!

Something noteworthy is that Isabel loves to hear from her readers. Never hesitate to get in touch. She’s always willing and ready to talk about anything. If you enjoy this book, she encourages you to not only let her know, but let the world know.

 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.
