My name is Lucian Quinn and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I'm twenty-nine, rich and single. Impressive right? I'm also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. What these women don't know though is that I'm completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair. The only part of me I'll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream...several times. Then I saw her...I'm Lia Adams and I'm in my last year at St. Claire's University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother, and a twisted stepfather who was worse...so much worse. I'll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men that I accompany to various events are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arm for an evening. It has never gone further than that...until him...Contains mature themes.… (more)

I enjoyed this book, which is the first I've read by Sydney Landon. There were a few twists in it - things I had not expected - and the ending left me with no doubt about going on to read the second book about Lucian and Lia. Great reading! ( )

So, perhaps I should disclose a few things first: I got this on a free day on amazon, so I'm not actually out cash, and I didn't do much beyond reading the short blurb (usually I read a couple of reviews before I get anything--even freebies). I knew the book was short, but I did not know that the book was unfinished. There's a difference, people, between teeing up a second book in a series and just not fucking finishing the book. This falls in the latter category.

This is your typical man with everything but damaged so he can't have a meaningful relationship meets an equally damaged, but special, snowflake. Beyond them both having the damage in common and being hot, they've got zero in common. I liked them both as characters--I"m generally quite lenient toward the "pulled myself out of the mire and continued on/didn't let it defeat me" type of protagonist. But this was just... extraordinarily unrealistic. He's got a coke addition that no one knows about but his besties. She's got lots of issues that somehow don't bother her unless she's with him. He's never brought a girl home until her--right away. She's got a deranged step father and wicked mother that show up out of nowhere after years of solitude. ANd then I can't tell you what because the book finishes IN THE MIDDLE OF A SCENE.

I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because they are likable enough and the writing doesn't suck. But don't spend your money on this unfinished work. ( )

If I could give 10 stars, I would. This series is spectacular. It has the sex, the love, the heartache, money, drama...everything. I cannot wait till 12/31/14 for the next chapter.
Lucian is a highpowered owner of a business with money, good looks, and the ability to get whatever he wants, except for a date last minute. That's when his best friend hooks him up with an escort service and he meets Lia. Lia is a college student trying to make it on her own. She's sassy, independent and beautiful and Lucian falls hard and fast. He wants her body and he'll have it one way or the other. But things between them can't all be about the sex, feelings begin to get in the way too. And with that comes past mistakes and living up to them. ( )
