Despite everything I've done for my parents, I'll never be good enough for them. Instead of seeing a man to be proud of, they just see an embarrassment. I served four tours in Afghanistan but that doesn't mean anything to them. They only see the ink, the party life, and my short stint in jail.
And nothing else.
When they were in trouble, I handed over my life savings. I didn't think twice about it because they're my family, my blood. They raised me to be my own man and gave me everything I needed. It didn't matter that it was every penny I had. It didn't matter that the money was set aside for my future. My dreams.
Because they needed me.
But now they refuse to pay me back until I become the man they think I should be.
I have an unusual professional.
I escort men, acting as their date to family functions or work parties. It's my job to act deeply in love with my client. And I always nail it.
But it's not what you think.
I'm not a prostitute.
I'm not a call girl.
I'm an actress.
Get it right.
There are strict rules when it comes to my profession. There is no touching, kissing, or anything but hand-holding. Those who choose not to comply will get a swift kick in the nuts.
But all this goes to hell when Ash walks into my life.
I must say, 2016 for this book whore has been kick ass book wise so far, personal life not so much but that’s why I am a book whore. I will lose myself in a book to escape the realities around me when things get to be too much and Into The Fire by E.L. Todd was a great way to escape. Not only is this book sexy, and trust me it is sexy people, it also has the perfect mix of banter that will have you doubled over laughing and angst that will have your heart beating fast, your stomach in knots and will have you hooked almost immediately.
It always sucks when your family tries to not only change who you are but basically blackmail you into changing sucks even more and that is what is happening to Ash. Now is he a manwhore? Yes. Does he act like a kid sometimes? Yes. Did he make some mistakes? Yes he did. He also served his country, helped out said family and now is being told to change or they won’t pay him back. Can I see both sides? Please don’t show this review to my children when they are older, I beg of you, because I can see both sides. I hate that Ash was put in this position but I also see where his parents are coming from. I said don’t show my kids because let’s face it here people I act like a big child most days, I hate authority, I still fight with my parents and am the type of person who will do the complete opposite of what you want if you try to force me to conform to your ways. I already see my kids being my mini mes so shhh ok? Alright moving on lol. I instantly loved Alessandra. I think if it had been anyone else there would have been no hope for Ash. She was perfect for him. I loved how it evolved into a friendship then the relationship.
I am going to be keeping my eye out for the next book in this series because Into The Fire was a great start to a series that I have a feeling that I will continue to enjoy.
