Aspen works the job that she loves doing, researching for a new clean energy that won’t hurt the environment and the climate change.  She hates her boss, who also happens to be her Dad.  He only offers her the company if she can find a man who he approves of and won’t embarrass him. How was she going to do that in a hurry? Rhett is the perfect gentlemen and can be whatever else you need him to be. He was perfect for the job and she only needed him a short while.  Could this continue with no feelings for Aspen to take the company over? Rhett had no problems becoming attached to any of his “dates” but would this time be different? 
I enjoyed this book immensely.  There were several times the relationship between Rhett and Aspen made me giggle or truly laugh out loud and maybe almost spit pop all over my kindle.  They have great chemistry and make the book enjoyable! Aspen’s father was cruel, mean, and incredibly hurtful. When it came time to a scene with him, I cringed because I knew the type of things that would happen.  It was heartbreaking. Then there would be a scene with Harper or Rhett that would lift your spirits back up, it was great. 
 Even though the scenes with Aspen’s Dad were hard to read these were incredibly important.  This book teaches you that family does not always have to be blood. Family is with whomever you want it to be as long as you are loved and love back.  Love is not hurtful. Love empowers us to do things that sometimes we don’t want to do, in which case Aspen finally did. It was a powerful message and I hope it’s a message that other readers grasp and accept.  
There is no doubt in my mind as to whether you should read this book.  Of course you should! Of course there are dark moments and hard to read scenes but the overall feeling in this book is happiness, love, and moving forward with ones life.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beautiful-Entourage-1-ebook/dp/B00WZOSI3U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1435090988&sr=8-1&keywords=Beautiful+Entourage

Gorgeous Consort (Book 2 in the Beautiful Entourage Series)

Troy is a vulgar, uncensored, extremely good looking man.  He fights for what he loves and goes down swinging for his heart. Troy was broken a year ago and doesn’t see a reason to date or see a reason to trust women, ever again.  Harper was a sweet girl longing for her family’s acceptance and approval of her life. She was doing everything right except for having a boyfriend. She had yet to find Mr. Right and her family just didn’t understand how she could be happy, successful, and still be single. She needed a date for her sister’s wedding or there was no way she was going to make it through the event.  Troy thought he needed a “friend with benefits”. Little did they both know what they really needed was in front of each other the entire time, true love, honesty, and trust. Will the blinders be removed to show just how great love is? Is the ice that is around Troy’s heart able to be chipped away? 
This book was great. It was sweet and romantic but in a different way. The male lead has his sweet moments but he is raw, unfiltered, and likes to run at the mouth sometimes. That made him perfect in my eyes.  He wasn’t what “everyone” wanted him to be. He stayed true to himself but knew when cut back a little bit of his normal style. I think the author did a great job writing and describing his character. Bossy, unfiltered, and loud people are beautiful too and that is just how the author wrote him.  Harper was also a fun character to read. Her honesty is what I appreciated most and the author had a great follow through with her character. 
There were different emotions felt in this book. There was some comedy, of course, how could you not laugh after reading some of Troy and Harper’s conversations. There was a bit more in the “heart felt” category in my opinion. The turmoil, sadness, love, and longing that all pulled at Troy during the book seemed to drip off the pages into my soul. It was beautiful, powerful, and incredible all at the same time. It’s hard to put into words how the writing of this author and this character will make you feel. 
Even though I’m a sucker for sappy romance books, this book was a bit darker but still sucked me in. It’s an incredible read and time flies when you’re reading it. I, without a doubt, recommend this book to you! 

Dark Escort (Book 3 in the Beautiful Entourage Series)

Cato was the epitome of all playboys and the king of one night stands. He did his business and left before the ladies woke up.  He met someone who left an imprint on his heart and then shattered it when she left in the middle of the night with a note. Was this how other women felt? Two years lady he gets a new client who doesn’t recognize him as having any kind of history with him. Katarina needed an escort to get her family off her back. Maybe if she appeared to have a boyfriend she was serious about then they would back off of trying to push her and her best friend Joey together just as a convenience for both family businesses.  What would happen when their two worlds would collide again? Could Cato hold it together and abide by the rules the escorts are to follow? Would they ever be able to move forward? 
I was nervous about reading this book because I wasn’t Cato’s biggest fan. He was a little bit too vulgar and opinionated for me. However, after reading his story, he won me over! The author did a great job writing his character along with Katarina! It was kind of refreshing seeing the female be the one hold the power of a man’s heart.  She held the power to Cato and she had no idea! There was a number of emotions throughout this story. There was comedy, love, anger, frustration. There are some moments where you will laugh out loud and some moments where you might swoon.  
It’s a bit faster read than the first two but the story line is still incredible. I do enjoy that the author took each character and gave each of them their own story. The only thing that was the same in each story was they are all male escorts and nothing else is the same. Each has met their love interest in a different manner. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Jett was an all-around good guy. He did was his clients needed to be done and that was that.  His newest client was gay and needed Jet to help him break the ice to his parents.  Little did Jet know that his client’s sister would make him crazy with lust and love.  What was he to do? His client needed him to play his part as his boyfriend and he wanted nothing but to start a relationship with his client’s sister.  Could they make it work without exposing the client? Was it worth trying?  
This was an interesting book.  The twist that Jett’s client was gay but he was falling madly in love with his sister made the book for a great read.  It was a different story line than I have read but it kept me reading. It grasped me and I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen. The question “how was it going to work out” was in the back of my mind the entire time I was reading.  I loved how Jett became such good friends with his client and truly cared about him – more than just a paycheck.  It was nice to see that they did their jobs to help people as much as a job. This story seemed to be more heart felt and sweeter than the others.  
Another great read, can’t wait to read the last book in the series.

River has been looking for love and to settle down for a while and he just isn’t finding the right girl. Once he stops looking and is just his natural charming, sweet self he runs into the woman of his dreams; Meadow who had teary eyes and a makeup streaked face.  He saw her down deep and natural. He knew she was the one and the next day received his next client, Meadow.  He had to make her his, but how? Could he convince her that she was the one? Could he get her to open her eyes to see her boss was a sleeze ball? 
River was my FAVORITE! He was sexy, charming, sweet, and bossy. He pulled all of those qualities off quite nicely. I think his story was probably the best story and it was the shortest! I loved the back and fourth between Meadow and River and they left me laughing multiple times.  Although there was disappointment in some spots throughout the book I think this book, overall, had more of a happy tone. It was a great ending piece for the series.  I think I would even say that this book was beautiful, front to back, starting with River coming to save the day at the charity event.  River is definitely a swoon worthy character and the author did a great job making him that way.  The descriptive way that the author wrote this book, her characters and the scenery made it so easy to just fall into the book and live the story as the characters were telling it! 
There is no second guessing here, go pick up a copy now. They are such great books, you won’t be disappointed. 







Thanks & HAppy Reading!
