Escorted by Claire Kent
Reviewed by Kate
Okay, I admit to being intrigued by the premise right off the bat. You just don't run across too many male escort romances out there.
Lori, a successful romance author, is still a virgin at 26. She hires Anders, a male escort, to take care of that problem for her. Obviously, or it wouldn't be a romance, they both fall for each other.
This story is told from Lori's view point. You only hear Ander's thoughts if he shares them with Lori. I typically don't care for this style of narrative, but it worked here. I don't think I could have liked Ander as much as I did if the story included his other "engagements." There were two things that bothered me about the story:
1. The title. I kept thinking "oooh, you got escorted" in the same line of "you got served," and
2. the pen name Lori uses in the story is Claire Kent, the name of the author.
Small things, I know, but that's just me.
