It's a really sweet contemporary romance.
One look into striking cobalt blue eyes and Monica knows she'll take the plunge. Too bad the man she's attracted to is in the online catalog of a high-priced escort service.
Monica is a freelance writer trapped at home by acute agoraphobia. Tired of her fantasy sex life, she dares to hire a man for an in-home date which may or may not lead to the bedroom.
College student Ryan is strapped for cash. To keep himself and his ill grandmother financially afloat, Labors of Love dating service sounds like an easy gig. He's relieved when he's attracted to his very cute first client.
What was meant to be a one time date evolves into several appointments since Monica can't get enough of Ryan. Can a relationship based on a business contract blossom into real romance and can Monica overcome her paralyzing panic attacks when true love is at stake?
Monica's flaw is believable and made a nice plot :) I'm glad that she wasn't weak, she learnt and fought against her disability without Ryan being the hero. I like the little snippets of her fantasies. I'm pretty sure that happens to us ladies pretty often ;) It's a pretty good as a quick light read :3
Erotica wise, the steamy was pretty good :3 That's just a no no. I enjoyed the rape fantasy scene. It was steamy yet hilarious at the same time!
"Scream and I'll shoot, bitch!" he growled.
Monica glanced sideways at the gun and begin to laugh.
"Ryan, it's a neon orange water pistol. That doesn't help the illusion."
"I knew I should've brought a knife instead." He jammed the small plastic gun in his jacket pocket and grabbed her throat, gripping hard enough to let her know he meant business. The feeling of her body trapped beneath his, her pulse beating fast against his palm, made him hard. He ground his growing erection against her.
