The first time she got pregnant. The second time she got paid.

No one ever thinks they’re going to end up as a high-end call girl in Las Vegas. But life doesn’t always go as planned. I know this better than anyone.Over the years I've felt a lot of things about my occupation...but not regret—never regret. I have my reasons for doing what I do and nothing and no one has ever made me question them.


He changed me and I'd naively fed into the fairy tale.

But Marco wasn't my Prince Charming. He had secrets of his own. Secrets that would eventually rip away everything I held dear.

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

First of all...reader beware! This book ends on a cliffhanger. Like a REALLY big one. So if that's not your thing, wait until the next book comes out in July and read them one right after another. Because you really should read's SO GOOD.

This book literally starts out with a bang. We meet Brandi when she is with one of her regulars. She is a Las Vegas Escort and she is one of the best. She has a young son with muscular dystrophy to take care of and by being an escort, she is able to properly care of her son. You can tell right away that this is just a job for her and at this point when she is with a client, she just goes through the motions. But then she meets Marco Valenti.

Marco is an extremely charming and gorgeous, Italian businessman who hires Brandi. It doesn't take her long to realize that he's not only successful, but also that his business dealings are with some of the most important and dangerous men in Las Vegas. Pretty much from the moment Brandi met him, she knew that Marco was different. He treated her with the utmost respect and never once judged her. As Brandi and Marco spend time together and get to know one another, they start to develop real feelings. As their relationship progresses into a genuine thing, Brandi and her son's safety comes into question and they move into the hotel with Marco.

I just fell in love with Brandi and Marco as a couple. Sure, the way they got together was unconventional, but their feelings for each were the real deal. Marco not only loved Brandi, but he also admired her for doing what she had to do to support her and her son. The scenes between just the two of them were not only ridiculously hot (seriously, you will need a cold shower and a panty change), but also very sweet. Marco loved to tell (and show) her how amazing she was and he never once did he let her doubt his feelings. And I also loved that Marco accepted her son with no questions asked. The two of them form quite the bond that even Brandi didn't see coming.

I CANNOT wait to read the next book. Never mind the whole cliffhanger thing (I mean yes, that is important too), but I am ready for more Marco. Marco speaking in Italian and teaching Brandi's son how to say some phrases. Marco being sweet. Marco being rough. Marco at the opera (which I have been doing ALL WRONG). Marco in a speedo. Marco just being Marco. I NEED MORE MARCO!


I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

If you haven't read the first book in this duet, Hook, STOP READING RIGHT NOW. No really. Don't scroll down. Don't read the excerpt....just go away!  ;-)

Burn picks right up where Hook left off. You know what I am talking about. Right after THAT CLIFFHANGER. Good lord. I was hoping for maybe a quick resolution, but of course that isn't the case. (Hmph.)

I don't want to say too much just in case someone didn't heed the above warning, but I will that there was a twist that made me be like "Say whaaaaaaat?" I was so invested in Marco and Brandi's relationship and wanting them to make things work that I didn't even see it coming. Luckily it was a good twist and it gave me lots of hope. I wasn't thrilled by everything that went down in this book, but it was all for the greater good.

Once I started reading, I couldn't put this book down. I just had to know what happened. I cried a little. I got super frustrated and yelled at my ereader. I worried...a lot...about everyone. It's a long and twisty road and the pay off is TOTALLY WORTH IT. Elisabeth gives us an EPIC epilogue that made me feel all the warm and fuzzies.
