Frisky Business, Book 1
Anna Jackson’s ex-boyfriend may have stolen her promotion, but she’s not mad. Not anymore. She’s getting even—by beating him at his own game. So what if she has to give up all her free time and any semblance of a personal life? With a partnership in a law firm as prestigious as Beckam, Beckam and Leland on the line, she’s willing to pay the price.
Las Vegas escort Devon McGuire is charming, sexy, and damn good at pleasing women. He’d better be, it’s what he gets paid for. Always up for a challenge, he’s looking forward to his newest job. Who wouldn’t enjoy a week as the companion of a smart, sultry, high-powered attorney—no strings attached?
Devon’s used to pushing boundaries, but there’s something about Anna that makes him want to turn up the steam. And when she learns to let go and unexpectedly opens to him, he finds himself falling right in.
Whoa, hold it. Love was never part of the plan…
They say “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”. That is just what Anna and her friends had full intention of experiencing in this fast-paced romance that combines just a little bit of everything that Vegas is known for.
One would think that Anna Jackson is the typical professional lawyer, but Vegas has a way of changing people. Anna has just been dumped by her boyfriend, Thomas Leeland, who also stole the partnership she had been working for right from under her feet. Anna is on a mission to prove that she is the best. I love how Anna’s friends wanted to make her mission impossible and set a new plan in motion for their best friend. I could just picture Ann’s jaw dropping when she met Devon in Caesars Palace.
Devon McGuire is a very pricey male prostitute. I love how he is independent and has schedules for his clients, most of which are regulars. The way Devon attacked and then retreated when dealing with Anna was a lesson in warfare. He did just enough to hook Anna and have her agree to his plans. What I really loved about Devon was that he never treated Anna just like another client. I got the feeling that Devon was really making love with Anna throughout the story not just having sex. I could tell that Devon really cared about Anna and her feelings.
Thomas Leeland shows up again in the story and stirs up more trouble. There is also a story about Devon and his family which I found very moving. My favorite characters are Anna’s friends, Mindy, Janie, Holly and Nichole. They are friends that I would love to have on my side.
Bait and Switch is the first book in the Frisky Business Series. I hope there are many more books with these refreshing characters.
