A beautiful and engaging romance built on love and respect.
Grant is a school teacher, and he’s working over the summer to pay off his sister’s debt. Between working and helping to take care of his Dad, he doesn’t have much of a personal life. When a blind date goes bad, Hunter comes to his rescue. Hunter Wolfe is a highly paid escort who provides a variety of personal services, including sex. Hunter and Grant have a few things in common including having a rough childhood and helping each other out at the high school they attended together. Hunter takes Grant out to dinner to thank him for his past help, but both of them are surprised at the connection they feel for one another. The biggest question is if the two of them can make it work with Hunter’s career.
Hunter is extremely handsome and sexy, and he knows it. While this arrogance might normally be annoying, in this case it was adorable because he uses his good looks and charm to help other people. He takes his role as an escort very seriously, and when he’s with a client, he gives them his undivided focus. Anybody who has ever been on the receiving end of that kind of attention knows what a wonderful feeling it can be. He always works hard to give his clients an experience they won’t forget, which has made him extremely popular and wealthy. Grant is a sweet person who does a wonderful job teaching students. He tries hard to find the best way to make each student excited about learning, and he’s successful at it.
I really enjoyed watching these two get to know each other. I loved Hunter and Grant, and I really wanted them to find the happiness that they deserved. I adored how Grant was so determined to take care of Hunter knowing that Hunter always took care of everybody else. I also enjoyed the time they spent in the bedroom. Their feelings for each other came through in every action, making it even sexier. Doses of realism kept me wondering how they would resolve the biggest issue they needed to deal with – convincing Hunter he deserved love and happiness. Interactions with friends and family helped us understand the characters better. It also created some excitement for what I can only hope will be the next book in the series. I read this book in one sitting and loved every minute of it.
This touching romance was such an enjoyable reading experience with unique and richly developed characters.

Hunter Wolf is a highly paid Las Vegas escort with a face and body that have men salivating and paying a great deal for him to fulfill their fantasies. He keeps his own fantasies to himself, not that they matter.
Grant is an elementary-school teacher who works miracles with his summer school students. He discovered his gift while in high school, tutoring Hunter, a fellow student. They meet again when Hunter rescues Grant in a club. Grant doesn’t know Hunter is an escort or that they share similarly painful pasts involving family members’ substance abuse.
After the meeting, Hunter invites Grant to one of the finest restaurants in Las Vegas. Hunter is charming, sexy, and gracious, and Grant is intrigued. With more in common than they realized, the two men decide to give a relationship a try. At first, Grant believes he can deal with Hunter’s profession and accepts that Hunter will be faithful with his heart if not his body. Both men find their feelings run deeper than either imagined. For Grant, it’s harder than he thought to accept Hunter’s occupation, and Hunter’s feelings for Grant now make work nearly impossible. But Hunter’s choice of profession comes with a price, which could involve Grant’s job and their hearts—a price that might be too high for either of them to pay.
