Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway: Living in Sin (The Escort Series #1) by Isabel Lucero

Title: Living in Sin
Author: Isabel Lucero
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publication Date: January 1, 2014

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*
*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

What an incredible story!  I absolutely loved the angle of this series being about Male Escorts!  Isabel Lucero does an amazing job with her characters, making each one distinct, relatable and likable or hatable to the reader (depending on the character).  I absolutely adored Adrienne and her best friend Emelie. Their relationship makes me wish I had more girl friends my age or maybe that when I was single I had made trips to Vegas to experience the night life that Sin City has to offer as only a couple of single gal pals can.

This story follows Jace and his co-workers/friends as they go through the motions of performing their everyday duties of being male escorts.  Along the way, Jace happens upon a rather exotic beauty (Adrienne) outside the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.  He's struck by not only how beautiful she is, but also by his bodies response to hers.  He's got other plans though and is on his way to check in with his buddies after a very sexy and erotic rendezvous with not one but three female clients.  Yeah, he's got a tough job!  This scene between the foursome was my first of its kind with its M/F and F/F encounters and boy will it leave you needing a new pair of panties.  Continuing on though, as fate would have it, that chance encounter won't be their only one.  Problem is, Adrienne has seen this God like creature around town, and unfortunately for him, she has seen him with a different woman every time and doesn't date players after her last dismal relationship attempt ended in her boyfriend cheating on her and kissing her best friend.

Jace is happy with what he does but has made his fortune.  He's got more money than he knows what to do with.  He's got the penthouse apartment, Bentley and a new club opening with three of his escort friends to prove it.  But what he doesn't have and hasn't had for a really long time is a relationship.  What girl wants to date a guy who is a male escort?  None, from his experience, they tend to cut and run when that little morsel is revealed.  So can you blame a guy for not wanting to tell a woman he's immensely attracted to on a deeper level that he is an escort, especially when she admits her past relationship woes?  

Some of the story was fairly predictable to me but as a whole it keeps you on your toes.  I would think I had pieces figured out and even thought I had the last 20% of the story all figured out but then Isabel Lucero shocked me and didn't take the easy way out.  I am definitely wiggling on the hook to see where Jace and Adrienne go as we move onto Troy's story and I definitely want to learn more about Troy and the rest of the escort's of The Escort Series.
