Leah Godfrey has almost everything she could ask for— She’s got an interior design business with an A-list clientele, a weekly spot on a national morning TV show, and a great daughter—but she doesn’t have a date for her twentieth high school reunion. It wouldn’t be a big deal, but her ex-husband was her high school sweetheart, and now he’s married to the slut Leah caught him with in bed. She won’t let the biggest failure of her life overshadow her success. When her best friend suggests she hire a date, Leah thinks the idea is scandalous. But for one weekend, she wants to forget her mistakes and pretend she has everything her ex took away from her. Jagger Holiday makes women’s fantasies come true— But working as a male escort leaves him feeling empty. He turns to photography to fill the void. When Jagger gets a call from a lonely single mom who needs the same thing he does, he wants more. He wants her. Leah and Jagger have no problem convincing everyone at the reunion they’re together. She should’ve known better than to think there’d be no strings
attached. After all, he’s a professional.
First thing that got my attention is that this is a book about two mature adults who's lives are successful, but they're not perfect. They're both still missing something to complete them, to make them whole.
When it comes to Leah, I loved how real she was, specially with her teenager and the struggles that come with dealing with a child her age. It was heartwarming and heartbreaking at times, but look back and remember those times in your life and I imagine that's the way my parents felt at one point or another. This woman inspired respect, after getting over a nasty relationship with a self absorb jerk, she built her life from nothing and became successful. And although she enjoys her professional success, her personal life is lacking, that's the reason why she decides to take an unconventional path when it comes to bringing a partner to her high school reunion.
Jagger is successful at what he does, but he has bigger dreams and needs the money to help make his dreams come true. He's a sweet and honorable man who is just doing what he can in order to keep moving forward.
Once Leah and Jagger meet their chemistry is electrifying, they understand each other, they complement each other. They also add a very healthy splash of sexiness to the storyline.
I love the writing style of the author and the flow of the story. Not only are the two main characters well developed, but you will love and definitely hate some of the secondary characters.
This one was one book that I devoured in one sitting.
This is a book with two characters in a journey of self discovery and self fulfillment, a book well worth the reading.
