Title: Easy by Donna Alam
Genre: Erotic Romance
Expected Publication: February 18th 2018
Remember that time your friend hired you a male escort?
No? Just me then.
He was supposed to be arm candy.
A strong, sturdy presence to escort me to the party of my crush.
Pity he isn’t any of those things.
But he is pretty,
And funny. Charming.
And determined to get into my panties.
But he’s also a liar.
Because Will Travers isn’t a male escort.
But one of London’s most eligible bachelors,
My new neighbour,
And a risk to my heart.
So I might not be a dial-a-d*ck who’s paid by the hour.
And more a dial-a-d*ck who’s free.
But the lovely Sadie is an opportunity I’ll grab with both hands.
If she’ll let me.
I’ll knock down everything standing between us.
Fight for her like I’ve fought for nothing else
Because it’s true that nothing worth having ever comes easy.
Unless it’s s*x
This is a standalone, full-length romance. Laugh-out-loud and smexy, it includes some related bonuses, including a character spin-off novella, unavailable anywhere else!
You can’t say that the author doesn’t write hot alpha males. You might not like them when you first meet them (and Will is a bit of a g1t at the outset to be honest), but they certainly have something about them.
On this occasion, for me, it was the female lead that I had a little more of a problem with – I mean, who jumps on a transatlantic flight to possibly get together with someone, after an extended conversation at an airport? I found that to be a bit of a stretch as a premise. Leaving that aside, she was a bit too hot and cold for my liking as well.
And Will? Well, he didn’t endear himself initially, but I grew to like him more as the story unfolded.
I mean, yes, its the trope about “the one” causing the player to completely settle down. But it’s all in the delivery. And, for the most part, if you accept that as the basis of the story, then this hits the right notes.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Donna Alam writes about exotic locations and the men you aren’t married to, but wish you were. Escapism reads with heart and humour and, of course, plenty of steam.
Hailing from the North of England, she’s a nomad at heart moving houses and continents more times than she cares to recall. She once worked at a school like the one described in her Pretty Trilogy. Alas, there were no handsome male protagonists hanging around there.
An Eclectic reader and part-time perv, she’s a huge fan of smart men, as well as protagonists with a fair measure of inappropriateness.
