SINS & MISTRUST (Escort Series #3) by ISABEL LUCERO

sins and mistrust

SYNOPSIS

Marc Edwards is a male escort in Sin City. He’s used to being into whatever his clients are into, and doing everything they fantasize about. He’s also used to keeping parts of himself from the people closest to him, and denying himself what he truly wants. 

He gains a client who’s unlike any other client he’s had. Nathalia LaBelle actually tries to get to know non-escort Marc. She wants to find out what it is he fantasizes about, and isn’t bothered by the nature of his job. 

Has Marc found someone to open up to? Will Nathalia be able to handle what he desires? What he craves? Lines begin to blur, and Marc struggles knowing a relationship with a client is something that can’t happen. 

But what happens when Lincoln Cash, a man who has his own special relationship with Nathalia, comes into the picture with his own desires, rules, and sinful requests? Will they be able to get on the same page, or will mistrust run rampant and ruin everybody’s chances at getting what they want?

Author’s Note
While this is book three in The Escort Series, it can be read as a standalone. There is no need to read Living in Sin and Unforgivable Sin first, as this one starts in the time that Living in Sin did, and then follows through the series without giving much away about the first two. You may get some information regarding the other stories, but not much. Marc was scarce in those books, and we now get to see what he was up to.

Content Warning

This novel contains material not suitable for readers under age 18. M/F M/M M/F/M scenes exist within this book.

J&G:  It’s official!!  We’re GREEN WITH ENVY over a book character. Some girls get all the luck and if you’ve read Sins & Mistrust you’ll know that Nathalia LaBelle hit book character luck overload when she caught the attention of the uber sexy, brazen and super confident Linc and the uber, uber sexy, sensitive and beautiful Marc…not to mention these guys are DYNAMITE between the sheets.

In the words of Nelly…it’s getting hot in here and we don’t think we’ve cooled down since finishing this book yesterday. Why Isabel Lucero you saucy minx, what a sexy, kinky and lusty read this was.  Call the fire brigade because this was a HEAT FACTOR 10!  One of the hottest things we’ve read in a while that’s for sure!

“Marc,” I breathe, bringing our mouths closer together. “Kiss me.”

Note to author:  Is there a video of the goings on in this book somewhere because we need visuals! You know…for **cough cough** research purposes! We need to understand exactly what limb was in where, on where and around where. Just thinking about it makes us all hot and bothered!

Although the sex was absolutely OFF THE CHARTS and knicker melting good it didn’t override the emotion of the story because we felt every conflicted feelings between Marc and Linc especially.  There really wasn’t any question for us regarding the feelings between Nathalia and they guys, they were quite an open book, so for us it was the powerful passion and heart beating moments between these two gorgeous men that had our hearts and pulses racing!

‘There’s no way I’m letting go of this man.’

Nathalia wanted to know the real Marc as opposed to ‘Marc the Escort’ Marc was in the business of pleasing others, giving into their wants and here was a woman who wanted to know what Marc wanted and it was a refreshing change for him. Marc was without question used to give rather than take.

The passion, the heat and the lust between Marc and Linc was palpable to say the least! Linc chipped away at Marc’s carefully constructed walls bit by bit as he attempted to persuade Marc to let him in (no pun intended…oh alright then).

“You fuck me like you can’t get enough, and when you kiss me you steal the breath right out of me. We have this passion that even you can’t deny, but you don’t let me in.”

The friendship dynamic between Troy, Jace and Marc is apparent and it’s something we particularly love about this series. Their brotherhood and friendship seems to strengthen as the series progresses.

“We celebrate together, we mourn together, we cry together and we rise together. Never alone.”

The sweet between Nathalia and Marc was in contrast to the sheer animal heat between Linc and Marc and each balanced the other perfectly and when the three come together (hmmm what’s with those puns!) it’s explosive!

‘…and in that moment I realize I’m watching two people express their love for the other without words. It’s beautiful.’

Once we started we couldn’t put this book down. We were there with these characters every step of the way which is why we felt a little let down at the end. We had a lot of build-up but needed more ‘afters’. We needed to know how they prevailed plus there were questions we needed answered. Marc went through such a life altering change it would have been lovely to see him settled in the open.

At the end of the book the author has stated her intentions to write more of their story and that’s great, because we definitely want more. However, we would have preferred the ‘more‘ to have been included in this book as the ending felt rather abrupt.  This was our only bug bear in what was an addictively HOT story!  LOVED IT and highly recommend picking up Sins and Mistrust…preferably near a freezer!

LIVING IN SIN (Escort #1) by ISABEL LUCERO

living in sin

SYNOPSIS

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

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?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*
*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

This is one of those welcoming escapes – you know the ones….when you just want to read something really hot, with characters whose interaction will have you giggling and swooning in equal measures and something that gives you that feel good glow after you’ve closed the pages. Well, Living in Sin is that type of read. Add Jace Jamison into the mix…holy wow was this guy sex on legs! We bloody loved this cocky, tattooed, sensual, gorgeous, generous, witty sex god alright! He was as divine in a well-tailored suit as he was in a pair of sports shorts…..and let’s not get started on Jace in his naked form!! But although being an arrogant arse at times, he had such a beautiful soft side. Yep!  This guy had it all going on!

“I’ll tell you what I want,” he says. “I want to take my time with you. I want to go slow, and make sure my mouth meets every part of your body. I want to taste that delicious pussy of yours……I want to taste how wet I get you….” – Jace

Goodness Jace!!!

Adrienne was confident, sexy and sassy and it’s no wonder Jace was enamored with her. She definitely stirred something in our hero and he in turn, brought out the provocative side of Adrienne which made for some pretty steamy yet sweet reading.

‘Adrienne made me recognize that I haven’t been living.’ – Jace

Anyways, we’ll let you gage our reaction to this book by including our text exchanges while reading this book.

Gitte: I really like Adrienne, she’s fun, sweet and down to earth. There’s nothing that annoys me about her, phew!

Jenny: Such a relief! OMG! How freaking hot are these two together???? This!!! Bloody hell!

“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.” – Jace

Gitte: Once they finally get it on it was defo freezer time!!! What is it about filthy talkers?

“Why are you so good to me?”

“Because you’re mine.”

Jenny:  I don’t know girlfriend but we sure do love ‘em and Jace is a really good dirty talker!! Am loving how we’re getting to know the other guys too and love the friendship between Adrienne and Em. They are hilarious together!

Gitte: I bloody love the friendship Em and Adrienne have, it feels real and they’re so funny together! Now, the guys…..I love them! They’re imposing, have fab banter and a wicked sense of humour, but there’s a vulnerability too. Love them!

Jenny:  So true….I’m swooning and double swooning here…..lord have mercy, I want to be wooed by Jace. Jace does good woo! Thud!! There goes my heart! He just stole it!

Gitte: He’s something isn’t he, though I can’t picture him at all. I need to google lol!!! The wooing is 10/10!! Wow!!

‘I don’t think you can ever fully explain to someone what they mean to you and how much you truly care about them. They aren’t in your mind, or in your heart, and therefore will never know the emotions you feel when you’re around them….’ – Jace

So don’t delay. If it’s sexy, fun and swoony read you’re after, and we’ve enticed you enough to meet the delectable Mr Jace Jamieson and co, then be sure to add Living in Sin to your must read list. And as the boys would say………………..and it bears repeating….

Here’s to you indeed! Thanks for the fun read! You guys were just what we needed!  Hmmm….wonder how much they charge per hour? Oooopsie, did we say that out loud? ENJOY!
