When Daniel has to travel to San Francisco and needs an escort for a social event, the beautiful Sabrina shows up on his doorstep. Little does he know that she's not an escort. Their encounter quickly turns steamy until lies threaten to destroy their passionate affair.
This book opened like another book I have read before (Fifty Shades, anyone?)where the best friend/roommate falls ill and suckers her wholesome friend into substituting for her, only this time it isn't an interview she'll be going for.
I instantly liked Daniel. Who wouldn't? The man was completely betrayed by his girlfriend and lawyer from the opening chapter. Not that it ruined his week or anything. Daniel is clearly a workaholic and wasn't all that emotionally attached anyway, making you wonder, was it just that he was emotionally unavailable in general, or was it just that the right woman hadn't come along yet to sweep him off his feet? (Yes, I think men should be swept off their feet too sometimes!)
I also took an instant liking to Sabrina. She was, as I said, wholesome, yet vibrant and successful and well, the perfect fit for Daniel if you ask me. So when these two finally met, I was rooting for their success. Of course, Daniel doesn't know she isn't an escort and since she is a stand-in for her friend, Holly, he doesn't actually know her name either. All this confusion makes for a messy romance that is as passionate as it is nerve wracking. You never know how either one is going to react when the faced with the truth!
The affair turns to love in about two days. Yes, two days! Only, unlike in a lot of stories I read, it was totally and completely believable. I found myself stopping to count them out just to be sure. The two were so connected that I actually felt like they had been together for weeks. Color me surprised! The author did a fantastic job weaving two characters and their lives together in such a short amount of time that it's almost mind-blowing. Definitely a book that sucks you in and a worthwhile read!
