Working in a diner by day and desperately applying for accounting jobs by night, Allie Nobokov fears that her future will be one of a single, virginal, cat lady. A chance encounter with a gorgeous stranger, Zac, awakens her desires and she feels an undeniable connection.
When fate pushes them together once again, Allie’s desires run wild – until, just when things start getting hot and heavy, Zac disappears into the night...
How can you deny a connection so strong?
All that is pushed to the back of Allie’s mind when her younger brother shows up on her doorstep, desperately in need of more money than she can provide… Until she sees a classified ad.
“I met a girl and I can’t get over her,” says the ad, and goes on to describe Allie. “If you look like her, I’ll pay handsomely for one night with you.”
Can Allie summon the courage to answer the mysterious ad and go through with what it entails? And can she convince the enigmatic Zac to push aside his demons and give their love a chance?

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
Allie’s life was forever changed the day Zac walked into the diner that she was working at. His beautiful eyes held her frozen to the spot the moment she looked into them. Zac is exactly the kind of man that she wants to lose her virgin card too! Only he doesn’t approach her or ask for her phone number. That’s just Allie’s luck; find that someone that she is finally interested in and it goes nowhere! Typical of her life, she lost her mother to cancer, her job to the economy and now a beautiful man. What else can happen to her?
Joel looked at me with scared eyes. “Remember how you said you’d always be there for me?”
“Well I need you help now.” His lips twisted upwards in a grim, humorless smile, and I nodded rapidly.
“I need twenty thousand dollars.”
Allie cannot believe her baby brother is asking her for twenty thousand dollars! She had lost her job and was working as a waitress to keep a roof over her head. There was no way she could come up with that kind of money. Even though she had promised her mother that she would take care of Joel, there was no way she could bail him out of this.
Joel said, “It’s serious. If I don’t have the money…”
His voice trailed off and I said, “What? If you don’t have the money…?”
“He says he’ll break my leg.”
Allie runs into Zac at a bar where she was meeting her roommate. Zac rescues her from an offensive blind date. But once again he does not pick up on the intense reaction that they have to each other.
“Would you like to come upstairs?” He shook his head. “I shouldn’t.”
“Oh.” I hid my surprise. There was nothing to be surprised about, really. The ones you liked, never like you back.
While searching online for “high-paying freelance work” to make some money to help Joel, Allie stumbles across a classified site for escort services. With a recent ad describing someone that could be her. Allie replies and decides that it is Zac requesting services. The man on the site is willing to pay 25K for one night so Allie agrees to meet him. This will save her brother!
And then it hit me with a whoosh! I was going to lose my virginity.
Allie does not know what to expect but she goes to the meet the unknown man. From that moment forward nothing is as she expected it to be.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This book is about a Mystery Man that meets a naive young woman that doesn’t have a clue about the real world and how things work. The ending leaves you wanting the next book immediately to find out what happens next.
