I don’t care what my cousin says; I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean—
Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever.
It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate…except for one teeny tiny glitch.
He’s a gigolo.
Boy, do I know how to pick them
You’re the warm sun that shines when everything else is dark,” he went on, lifting his hands to rest them against the wall on either side of my face. “A smile and a hug in a room full of disapproval. You’re…” Wincing, he pressed his forehead against mine, “You’re everything.”

I was so excited to read more from Linda Kage, but I was also a little worried. When you start by reading one genre from an author and move onto another one, there’s always the fear that you won’t enjoy it.
In this case, I was totally panicking over nothing.
I mean, she wrote contemporary first, so obviously that’s her niche. And it shows. This book was fantastic. It was funny, sarcastic, sweet, but also had a level of seriousness with Mason and his sister and of course, Jeremy.
I loved seeing a little bit of the struggles that Mason goes through with his decision to be a gigolo or an escort or whatever you want to call it. The fact that he struggles without it instead of being all, “hey, I’m getting laid”, made this novel all the more realistic. And the fact that Reese supported him rather than giving him hell about his decisions definitely made me love her more. Especially when she was dealing with so much of her own shit and could of just disregarded him, she didn’t.
HEA’s are my life. I can’t wait to read more in this series. The Forbidden Men series is quickly becoming one of my favorite contemporaries.
Until next time,
