I don’t care what my cousin says; I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean—

Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever.

It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate…except for one glitch.

He's a gigolo.

Mason Lowe hasn't been dealt an easy hand in life.  At the young age of eighteen he was forced to sell his body to his landlady since his mother couldn't may the rent and his sister has cerebral palsy.  Reese Randall is in hiding from her psycho ex boyfriend who tried to kill her.

Both are in their first year attending the university where Reese is hiding and Mason lives.  It's here in the courtyard with her cousin Eva that she sees Mason for the first time.  From the start, Reese's feeling toward Mason have been intense.  Too bad for her, he doesn't seem to share the same feelings towards her.  There's also the rumor that he's a gigolo.

Yes, that's right a gigolo.  What started out as an agreement with his landlady has become so much more than that and he now has an entire business operation going on at the country club where he works.  It becomes no secret to Reese that Mason is in fact a true gigolo and she understands where he's coming from when she meets his sister for her new babysitting job.  Mason doesn't want to live this life forever, he has a plan and Reese isn't a part of it.  As time goes on their friendship begins to grow and they develop feelings toward one another.

But will it be enough that they share feelings or will his connection to the gigolo world make it impossible for him to leave such a profitable business?  What happens when her past comes back to her new future?

I loved this book  It was new, it was different, and was funny and emotional.  This book was great because while the main focus was on Reese and Mason, it was nice to see the story of Sarah and also parts of Eva's life.  It was amazing to watch both Reese and Mason shift and become different people as the book progressed and I look forward to reading more of this author's work in the future.  I would love to see more of Eva's story it sounds like her story would be amazing, 4.5 stars!
