She hired him to take her virginity...but now she wants even more.

Lori might be a popular romance writer, but she's never been anything but a flop with sex and love in her personal life. Still a virgin at twenty-six and increasingly frustrated by her inexperience, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She hires a talented, sexy male escort to take care of her inconvenient virginity.

She assumes one time with Ander will be enough, but she never dreams how much pleasure he can make her feel. Once isn't nearly enough. Twice isn't enough either. Soon, she becomes one of his regular clients.

Lori knows that nothing would be as foolish as falling in love with her paid escort, but she's never been wise with her heart. And, despite his professionalism, he doesn't seem entirely immune either.

My Thoughts:

There was just SOMETHING about this book that drew me to it. And oh my goodness am I glad for it because I adored this book top to bottom, left to right, up and down. It's difficult to put into words exactly how I felt, but here goes nothing.

Lori is a smart girl, and a writer, so I connected with her. And Ander? He wasn't the kind of guy authors always write about--he was definitely different. Put the two of them in the same room and hello! They fit together perfectly, they do. There were moments where the emotion was a roller coaster, and then there were those moments, those flawless moments, where you just adored them. My favorite part of all? Their first kiss. Their first REAL kiss. It was epic beyond proportions and far exceeds any other first kiss.
"Just try it, Lori," Ander said, his voice a little thick. She could feel his breath on her skin. "Kiss me."
*fans self* Oh, Ander.

Escorted is now one of my absolute favorite books. Ever. Claire Kent sucked me into this world, into the slow build of Ander and Lori's romance, and I loved it. Loved every minute of it. As of the writing of this review, I'm currently reading Breaking (a novella that takes place after Escorted), and thoroughly enjoying it. I will be reading more and more of Claire Kent's books, I can definitely tell you that!

My Rating:


  1. It's been so long since I've read a straight out romance. I can't think of anything worse than falling in love with your paid escort! I'll be interested to find out how this one resolves :)

    1. Seems like all I read anymore is romance, lol. It is interesting how it all plays out, a lot better than you'd expect. :)

  2. OOo I love kissing scenes. You totally got me with that. Thanks for the heads up Jessica!

    1. Right?! Amazing kissing scenes totally make a story infinitely better for me. :)
