On the flap: One night…one fantasy for hire…one sizzling case of mistaken identity.
Ainsley Simmons can hardly believe she’s ordered a fantasy lover online for Valentine’s—a man to fulfill her deepest sexual desires for the entire evening. She’s in for a surprise when sexy young Mr R shows up at her door in a classic case of mistaken identity.
Ainsley has the night of her life being pleasured by the much younger and demanding multi-millionaire—until she discovers he’s not her fantasy lover after all.
He’s even better than that…
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of bondage and anal sex.
Ainsley Simmons is a successful 40-something woman who has recently been down on her luck. She has an ex-boyfriend who used her business triumphs to embezzle from her and then runaway with a younger woman. To add salt to the wound, she finds out they’re going to marry which he never gave her that option. Taking the advice of a friend and to make herself feel better for just one night, she’s hired a male escort to fulfill all her sexual fantasies. It just so happens she wants him to be a bit younger.
As a young entrepreneur, Marcus Roarke has it all except love. He’s built an empire with Platinum Pleasures and fulfilling once in a lifetime opportunities to the very wealthy. In his personal life, he is often seen with a new woman but hasn’t had a serious relationship since the death of his wife several years prior. A last minute favor to his beloved administrative assistant sets into motion the fortuitous meeting with Ainsley.
I couldn’t get enough of this short story. It’s funny how miscommunication and mistaken identities leads to world of possibilities plus some really hot sex. I do mean alpha male, throw you on the bar sex. I like there is just enough plot and background to make the story enticing, erotic, and memorable. The characters are titillating, both with their fair share of sorrow which makes you root for this May-December romance wanting the happy ending.
On a side note, I could see the easily form into a series. I don’t believe it’s the author’s intent but that would be a fun ride.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
