I should have hated this book.
1. Based on the premise, the main character seems desperate. I hate reading novels about desperate women, with no self-worth.
2. It seems a little ridiculous that a 26 year old, successful romance writer had zero experience with sex.
3. And seriously, no one talked her out of a decision to hire a male escort? Really?
But in actuality, my reaction to this book was:It was a frickin' good read.
I literally read it in one sitting. I missed sleep, forgot my husband existed and forgot to eat or drink.
It's true, the main character Lori, is a complete mess. It's true the story is a little bit unbelievable.
I really didn't care, because:
AndersApparently there are men that can pull off the bald look
I loved the way that the beginning of the novel was super awkward. I had never read so many cringe-worthy moments in my life. It was like a train wreck that I didn't want to stop watching.
But as the story progressed and both characters showed more depth, I really was engaged in the story. Unbelievable but still one that kept awake thinking about how awesome it was. I really did love you, awkwardness and all.
