The Fifth Favor – by Shelby Reed

SYNOPSIS
Imagine a world where a woman’s every pleasure, every wish and wildest fantasy is granted by the man of her dreams…

Such a world exists inside the walls of Avalon, an elite private club that caters to women’s deepest desires. Billie Cort, a reporter from the raunchy magazine Illicit, has come to Avalon to interview the club’s most popular escort, the breathtakingly sexy Adrian.

Expecting nothing less from a place like Avalon, Billie is still stunned at how effortlessly Adrian brings out her sexual side. Adrian, too, is surprised to find himself thinking about Billie long after their interview is over. Adrian, of course, is irresistible, but Billie isn’t accustomed to being pursued by outrageously attractive male escorts. Adrian wants her, but soon realizes that she can fill a role in his life that’s more than just physical…

Firstly I want to thank the amazing Sylvia Day(author of Bared to You)for recommending this book, not sure I would have picked it up otherwise due to the cheesy cover, yes shame on me!!

This story is very emotional and extremely well written. I don’t think my facial expressions changed much..I think they stayed sad and tense the whole way through. I didn’t cry but I felt emotionally exhausted by the time I finished this book!!

The Fifth Favor follows the emotional journey of Adrian and Billie.

Adrian…WOW what an enigma albeit a HOT one!!! He is classy, gorgeous, amazingly talented in bed and fulfills every woman’s secret, or unbeknownst to them, sexual desires.

Adrian works for Avalon, a high class club and let’s be blunt and not beat around the bush, he is a male prostitute. Billie works for a magazine and has been hired to interview Adrian (who is the most requested male companion) and write an article about Avalon. As soon as Billie meets Adrian she falls hook, line and sinker and it seems so does Adrian. However, how can feelings like this be validated with the nature of Adrian’s lifestyle? Their journey in discovering what is important, how to feel and receive self-less and deserved love and follow their hearts is intense, passionate and very sad!

Adrian (sigh) feels that he does not deserve Billie’s love, he is such a tortured soul, broken by years of aiming to please others thereby neglecting and loosing himself along the way. His battle to go and fight for what he ultimately needs and deserves is heartbreaking. However, Billie never judges him for his choice of life, which I loved, she was head strong, knew how she felt, did not mince her words and stood for what she believed in no matter how much it hurt and broke her heart. She accepted him for who he was and strove to make him realize and accept that it is ok to FEEL and say enough is enough this is my life I choose LOVE!!! Billie showed great strength and character in the battle to find and unveil the REAL Adrian. Adrian the man NOT Adrian the male high class prostitute!!
