Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort. 

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle. 

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

Review: Surj Harvey

"Here's to the people we fuck, here's to the people that fuck us, 
if the people we fuck are fucking with us, fuck them and here's to us."

"Living in Sin" was a fun, sexy read which wasn't too taxing on the old brain cells... just what I needed after a couple of really heavy reads. Straight from the off, I knew this book would get me all hot and bothered and the fact the characters were drop dead gorgeous with personalities to go with didn't help matters. 

The opening chapter literally just threw me into the world of male escorts and their shenanigans.  I thought it might be seedy, a bit cringe worthy but no way. In fact it was the exact opposite. Women got to live out their wildest fantasies with men who not only looked the part but who knew what they were doing in the sack... or up against a wall or wherever and however the client wanted it. It was brilliant!!!! I loved reading about the guys from the agency. They were like best friends... brothers even and the banter they shared had me howling. 

"She has a sploshing fetish."
"What the fuck is a sploshing fetish?"
"She likes to have food and stuff smeared on her, then eaten off."
"That's not too bad right? I mean, whipped cream and chocolate syrup ain't bad to lick off a nice, naked body."
"Too bad she wanted fuckin' baked beans and ketchup rubbed all over her! That shit is nasty." 

Each of the men seemed to have a story and lucky us because this is a series so we'll be getting a whole lot more from these dream boats and I can't wait. 

"Living in Sin" told the story of Jase and Adrienne.. both really likable characters. Jase was just sooo swoon worthy. It was hard not to fall for him. He had the looks, the body and he was most definitely a charmer... he could charm the pants of any woman with those beautiful blue eyes. I loved that he was a gentleman and always respected the women he was with (whether that be through work or otherwise). Yes I know at work, that's what he got paid to do but trust me, the way he did it made me go weak at the knees!!! Despite his obvious hard earned wealth, money wasn't something Jase particularly flaunted. He was just a really down to earth, personable guy with an edge of cockiness and a sense of humour that only he could get away with. The image I had in my head of this man was to die for....yummy. 

Adrienne was a strong, confident woman who was going through a dry spell. I loved that she stuck to her guns when it came to Jase. She knew what she wanted from a guy and a womaniser (so she thought) was not on the top of her list for potential boyfriends. However, when your going through a sexual drought and your desperate for a bit of hanky panky, why not go for someone who is attracted to you and vice versa. Her strength definitely came through when (despite having the best sex of her life... and trust me... it was good), she didn't throw herself at Jase. It was what it was and he was definitely not what she needed long term in her life. Sex was one thing... anything more with this man was asking for trouble. 

I'm so glad the author didn't throw this couple into an instant relationship. Their interactions were realistic. They didn't know each other so initially it was literally a physical attraction that drew them to one another. They spent weeks not communicating but then why would they? They had a one night stand (as toe curlingly earth shattering as i was):

This was a one-time thing. That's it. Not gonna happen again. 
It was fun, hot, amazing, delicious sex... that will never happen again. 

I loved the pre relationship foreplay. It was brilliant. The whole friendship thing, the text messages etc all made for humorous reading But when things progressed, there was an under current that this could turn into so much more. And holy moly... Jase's mouth ... he was a dirty dawg!!! 

“I know you physically, I know you’re beautiful. I know how your body feels under my own. 
I know how you taste. I know the way you sound when you cry out as I fuck you. 
I know how you feel when you come, but I want to know more.”

Despite being quite predictable in terms of the story line, "Living in Sin" still made for a fun, flirty and very dirty read. I knew where the story was heading as various characters made their appearances but that was OK because I was desperate to see how the drama of certain situations would unfold. Without a doubt this book was entertaining. Never a dull moment. The sex was hot, the characters even hotter and as for the rest of the series, the next book will tell the story of Troy... the man damaged by a previous relationship. I'm hoping Emilie will feature heavily in his book because I have to say, she was one of my favourite characters. The comedy value she brought was priceless. 

I rated "Living in Sin" 3.5 Hearts. Bring on the next one!!! I can't wait to get me some more of these hotties!!!
