This was my first book by Maureen Smith. I can say that I liked it mostly because it reminded me of one of my fave movies, Pretty Woman. The sex scenes were quite explicit. If you're more into the hearts and flowers romance without details, don't get this title. If panty-melting hot is your thing, then you won't be disappointed. Overall, I really enjoyed the book immensely and would highly recommend it to others who enjoy Maureen Smith or this genre in general.

I never get tired of stories with uber-rich men. It's a nice fantasy. This one had the added bonus of hot sex scenes coupled with a good plot. Another winner from Ms. Smith. I'm looking forward to his brother's book - Anyway You Want It - which is a "friends to lovers" storyline. Should be another winner.

Update: I got to review this book for the blog Smart Bitches Trashy Books! Here's a link to the review I wrote (it goes into the story in more depth).

This steamy romance is the story of Lena and Roderick. When Roderick hires Lena to be his escort to an important business affair, she can't help but be persuaded to break her rule of getting involved with a client when her attraction to him overwhelms her. But when their arrangement ends, will they be able t

I'd "LOVE," to Be Served on Roderick's Plate!! STIFLINGLY EROTIC!!


The chemistry between Lena & Roderick IGNITE from the moment they meet until the novel concludes. It was SUCH a PAGE-TURNER. The MAYHEM they created with their TORRID love scenes, engulfed my every WICKED FANTASIES, and at times my pulse went HAYWIRE, (the pool scene, OOO-WEE! MY HEART-RATE WAS GOING A MILE A MINUTE!) It literally had me wonde

This was a cute pretty standard contemporary romance/chick lit book. Lena is the responsible member of the family who earns the$$ by working 2 jobs: college grant writer and professional escort (NOT sex/not a prostitute). She is a date for very wealthy business men who need an attractive and smart person for a function. She speaks japaneese and italian.
Roderick is wooing a japaneese company and his friend owns an escort agency, she pushes Lena on him as his "date" and Lena not only sweeps the Ja

As a writer and reader, I learned a great deal about explicit imagery and language. This piece of writing put a larger emphasis on sexual content and behavior - something I have yet to consider when writing my own prose. Grisham definitely wrote for the soul purpose of entertainment - there was no life lesson or moral earned from the story. In my own writing, I tend to lack the creative sense for great fiction pieces, but this piece of writing told me that exploring language, and sometimes uncom ...more

This book starts well enough - classy escort falls for a super sexy client who happens to be an energy magnate. Sparks fly, she manages to (mostly) stick to her principles, they have hot sex. All well and good... until they jet off to Tokyo.

I almost wailed, "Nooooo!" Japan is so hard to get right, and having lived here for the better part of a decade every mistake sticks out. And wow, there are a bunch. Flowers symbolizing death decorate their hotel room. One of the stickiest snacks ever is used

Ranty Spoilers Ahead: I hated this book. It's really messed up to me how "romance" is confused with "rich man creates scenario to coerce consent from vulnerable woman who would rather say no but now has to say yes". Somehow being a creepy stalker who doesn't understand that no means no is ok as long as he's handsome and rich. This trope is insulting to women everywhere and I wish I could get a refund of the $2 I spent at Amazon to read this novel.

You will not be able to put this one down once you start reading. The sex scenes in this book are just amazing!! Maureen Smith really has an incredible gift with her words, I am officially addicted to her books, and am reading them one by one...definitely purchase this, you will not regret it one bit!

This was a okay read to kill time on a Sunday. I still think it's sad that a book about black characters would have white people on the cover just to sell more books, I presume. Stupid.

Seninim / Maureen Smith
Öncelikle kitabı çok beğendim , farklı bir konusu olmasının yanı sıra yazarında anlatımı bir hayli kuvvetliydi.Beni etkileyen en önemli unsurlardan biriyse içinde JAPON KÜLTÜRÜ’ne değinilmesi , tam bir Japonya delisi olan ben için kitap bulunmaz bir nimet oldu.Okurken küçük bir yerde Lena’nın Japonca ‘’Doomo Arigatou Gozaimasu’’ demesi ve Japon yemeklerinden bahsedilmesi çok hoşuma gitti.Öyle ki en çok duyduğum Japon yemeklerinden biri olan Negi Ramen’i bile ‘’Acaba yazar
For it's length, it took me some time to read. This is a first time author for me so I wasn't sure what to expect. The writing is very good and the story moves briskly. I didn't score it higher because as a book it breaks no new ground for me. It is a basic story of an arrogant billionaire who sweeps a (sometimes) resisting woman off her feet. The heroine Lena works as a high class escort -- no sex, just arm candy and big brains -- for rich men in order to pay for her grandfather's care at a ful ...more

The story wasn't bad, but I didn't like the sex most of the time too much quickies, it started out very very interesting (hope not a spoiler) but on that first night they met and they had sex it kind of lost my interest, don't get me wrong I have read books where the sex is in the first chapter and I liked it but it kept my interest. I felt like the book was missing something cant pin point it it felt like it didn't hold my interest the way I wanted it to, the characters were great but would hav ...more

Loved that it was set in chicago.
Loved that the main character would do anything for her family and career, to a fault- some would say
Steamy scenes, A LITTLE softcore-.IMO
I didn't see a love story, more like a lust story.
Unrealistic, Pretty woman - knock off.
The protaganist always flaunted his money and that's the only way he showed her any "romance." That doesn't give any hope to the poor sap's romantic he/she will never be able to live up to unless there's a Swiss bank account somewhere.

Seninim kitabını şu dakika bitirdim ve açıkçası nasıl bitti anlamadım. O kadar akıcıydı ki bir elime altım 150. sayfadayım ondan sonra çay almak için giderken ayraç koyduğumda baktım 280. sayfadayım. Nasıl bu kadar hızla ilerledi farkına varmadım. Resmen bir içim su olan bir kitap.

Yazarın kalemi çok akıcı ve üslubu da çok sürükleyiciydi. Ağır bir dil değil hafif ve keyifle okunacak bir dili var yazarın...

WHATEVER YOU LIKE was a good read. The characters were explosive together and the pace kept up.

Lena Morrison works a second job as an upscale escort for the rich and unattainable. The night she accompanies Mr. Roderick Brand changes everything.

Not allowing her to get away, Roderick goes through Lena’s day job at the university to persuade her into spending time with him.

Lena tries to keep her life separate from work, but Roderick breaks down every barrier. Until they both push each other away
Feb 02, 2016 Sonia rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition

This author writes very good erotic...3 stars. Story 1 star. Erotica without the emotional growth of the main character, is both tedious, boring and irritating. In addition, this very slippery line that this author tries to walk between escort service and prostitution, is very shaky. Shaky because she failed to make the case. Add into the mix, the author created a very immature h who instead of trying to grow her emotionally, spends the time, other than the erotica, being an incredible em

Omg, I loved this book. It is so romantic and the way she describe the twin brothers Roderick and Remy the way their character were portrayed, it was like life was bouncing. off the pages of book and you could see them both. Great storyline and plot. Love love is in their air... Ah, yes I have already started on part two and the second part runs right into the next book. 'Any way you want It.' ...more

Güzel kitaptı hiç sıkılmadan okudum başından kalkmadan...
Devamı da çok geçmeden çıksa keşke çünkü ikiz Remy ve Zandra'nın neler yaşayacağını çok merak ediyorum..
Bu arada Brand kardeşleri bir türlü siyahi olarak canlandıramadım gözümde, en sonunda Idris Elba'ya baktım google'dan anca ondan sonra :D
PS: Bir de bu kapaktaki adamı hangi akla hizmet koymuşlar onu anlamadım ben!!

Eski yazarlar yazarken, bir konu olurdu kitaplarda... O konunun arasında da cinsellik olurdu konunun gidişatına göre... Artık yazarlar(!) cinsellik yazıyor, aralara da azıcık konu serpiştirmeye çalışıyor sanki. Bu da her şeyi havada bırakıyor. Boş bir şeye dönüştürüyor... Bu da öyleydi.

This was XXXX short of bring to hot to handle. Leann and Roderick took love and relationships to the next level as they learn to trust each other by giving and receiving. The grandfather and brother added concern and understanding.
This book is hot hot hot!!! Whew! I thoroughly enjoyed it & am now in a desperate search for more of Maureen Smith's books. I totally recommend this book. It held my attention & I loved the characters.

Bir aşk romanı okuyorsanız eger erotizmin bu kadarı gayet normal ve gereklidir bana göre. Yazarın anlatışı da tutkulu olduguna göre öpüp başımıza koymalıyız, bence tabi. Eskortluk yapan ancak müşteriyleriyle yataga girmemeye yeminli Lena, yeni müşterisi Roderick e karsı koyamıyor ve ipler bu noktadan sonra kopuyor. Adamımız deli gibi zengin ancak kafayı Lena ile bozuyor ve onu elde etmek için hain planını acıklayınca kızımız ne kadar dirense de karsı koyamıyor. Eh peki bunca seyin arasında aşk n ...more

I have enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. My earliest memory of knowing I had a “literary gift” was as a third grader, when I wrote and illustrated a story about a child who stumbled upon a bird’s nest and decided to nurture the orphaned chickadee until its mother returned. I can’t recall whether the story had a happy ending or not, but my teacher, Mrs. Bennett, was so impressed that s ...more
