She’s a high class call girl. He’s taking over his father’s business.

Seven years ago, they fell in love in Paris.

They walked away at the end of the summer, never imagining they’d meet again.

Now he’s her client.

We fell in love the way you jump from a cliff. Hard and fast with a reckless sense of abandon. The six weeks we spent together changed my life, but at seventeen,

Series: Yes

Release Date: 28th April, 2014
Rating: 3 stars
Cliffhanger:. Yes

What do you get when you mix a high class call girl who is unapologetic, upfront and feisty? Mia Lopez, that's who. Well, her persona at least, her real name is Dayton Black. Told from a single point of view her dialogue was somewhat reminiscent of Drew from the Tangled series she's honest, sometimes crude with a lot of sass.

She does her job and she does it well, that is until one

TITLE: Late Call.
AUTHOR: Emma Hart
GENRE: Erotica, Fiction
SERIES: Book 1.
CLIFFHANGER: (view spoiler)
HEA: (view spoiler)


The plot premise. (Emphasis on premise). When Emma Hart announced Late Call I was stoked for the book because it sounded incredible - escort being hired by an ex-lover. I was preparing myself for a female dominated story different to the many stereotypical alpha erotica novels. Unfortunately, that's not what I got.

Sexy, smart and sizzling, Late Call is addictive and brilliantly written! You will love this one, ladies!

I believe so far she mentioned what her job entitles more than 40 times. Her only concern through the day is to know what to wear.

You know when you have been with an author from the start? Read their very first books, pimped the hell out of them and then forged an amazing friendship with them? You see how much time and effort they put into their books, how much their writing has gone from strength to strength and how much they appreciate everyone’s help in making that book/series popular?

Well I can honestly say that from all the books I’ve read by Emma Hart (Including two that aren’t released yet ;)) I have to say that Lat

I have no idea why I keep downloading this kind of books.

Strike 1: name dropping, lingerie in this case.
Strike 2: instead of trying to wow her or seduce her, guy hires girl for six weeks (she is a call girl). Then I got distracted trying to estimate how much money that is.
Strike 3: I don't ask people things, Dayton. I tell them. You included.

Call Girls do not fall in love…

That was Dayton’s motto, but she wasn’t able to stick to it..

Especially when her client happens to be the one man she has ever loved…

I mean, I was able to finish it, so I guess it deserves more than one star. And I would like to see how it ends so I'll probably hate-read/skim the sequel.

This is kind of like the romantic erotica version of Itchy and Scratchy: They fight, they fuck, they fight and fight and fuck, fight fight fight, fuck fuck fuck, The Dayton and Aaron Shooooowww! That's the entire plot right there. Seriously.

What always bothers me about these rich alpha guy characters is that the things they say and do are text

Late Call was an okay read. I mean, it wasn't mind-blowing and it wasn't lame either.

A decent love story between a call girl and a rich CEO, who fell in love 7 years ago pre-call girl/CEO era.

So, why the 3.5 stars rating?

Well, if I had to narrow it down to one thing, it would be all the drama and back-and-forth in Dayton and Aaron's relationship.

It was obvious they both wanted to be together and I just don't get why he didn't propose to her to leave the cal

Book Notes:
-Dayton: hard headed, promiscuous, craves control, 24 yrs old
-Aaron: rich, alpha, controlling, mid 20's
-Plot: unique
-Writing: average. 1st person POV (Dayton's)

This book wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good.
There were tons of things that annoyed me; most of all-Dayton. I could not connect with her at all. She was stubborn, in denial, and irrational. She was pissed off at Aaron for 80% of the book (not even kidding); I began to feel bad for Aaron. I feel like if

I am so disappointed. This book sounded really interesting and I was really liking Dayton and Aaron's relationship but then...
1. It seemed a huge part of their relationship is sex. Lots of sex. I don't mind characters have a great physical relationship but the last 30% seemed to be mostly sex. Drove me crazy.
2. Aaron is far too controlling and possessive for me to love him. He decided what she would wear, when she would wear it, where she would go (even if she wasn't with him), who she could ta

Dayton Black is a 24 year old call girl living in Seattle. She is great at her job and gets paid well for her services. Her stage name for her dates is Mia Lopez. Dayton uses the alter ego to help her through the life she has chosen to live. It's not a life she relishes but after her parents death and having to drop out of the college, her Aunt Leigh, who used to be in the business, introduced Dayton to her old agent, Monique.

This just didn't work for me. I didn't feel the attraction between the characters, I didn't like either of the characters, I thought the male character was a possessive insecure arse who was growing more irritating by the minute and I wasn't enjoying the set up. They had history together but she kept pushing him away because...idk why she was pushing him away. Made no sense.
The writing descriptions lost me a few times too - he's pushed her against a wal

I know I don't usually review erotic romance, but this is Emma Hart people. And I read everything Emma writes. So when she said she was doing this genre I was like, "Ooh girl! Get on with your bad self!" And she does folks. She SO does. However, this book isn't just about sex. It has a plot, character development, and you can feel all of our main character Dayton's emotions as she fights the battle between her heart and her mind.

Ok, I'm in the minority with this one, so take this all with a grain of salt

Really, this should have been right up my alley. Second chance with a first love - and she's a call girl. Yeah, that should have been a home run.

The problem? I couldn't stand Dayton. She is angry the whole book. The whole freaking book! She even says a couple of times "I'm always angry". Truer words have never been spoken.

See, in the beginning, I got it. I thought it was ok that she was angry. I understood her need to

Dayton Black is a high class call girl. One of the best..brings in the most for her mock-mother, Monique. She decided on this line of business when her life took a wrong turn, and since then, hasn't given love or relationships a second thought. That line of thinking is ably assisted by her cold, confident alter ego; Mia Lopez.

Aaron Stone is a CEO in waiting. He is destined to take over hIs father's successful advertising company, and has sought the services of Mia Lopez to accompany him on a par

It's not a bad book, but I also didn't love it. I like my books with a decent plot and this one is about 80-85% filled with sexy scenes and the plot that is present, pretty much revolves around it.
I found myself skimming the steamy scenes after about 50%.
The book itself isn't bad and Dayton and Aaron are mostly interesting. Though he was a bit too controlling for my taste and I would have liked a less predictable plot twist near the end.

It's one POV and it ends on a sort of cliffhanger.

I have a confession. This is my first Emma Hart book.

I have another confession. It won’t be my last!!

The writing and story flowed so that you were hooked and just wanted to keep going in their story so much so I wasn’t even watching the percentage creep up at the bottom of my kindle. I was engrossed in the romance, the background, the history and the geography of the storyline.

The book starts with a bang. Quite literally! You meet Mia, a high class call girl, the best of the best. She is extr

*I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have a confession: I ventured far outside my comfort zone picking Late Call up. I am so glad I did, though. I enjoyed Emma Hart's other books so when I saw the blurb for Late Call, I had to read it. I really enjoyed this book, a lot. I will be honest, I was a little nervous that there would be little plot and a lot of sexual situations. I was really, really wrong, at least about the little plot part (insert winky

This is my first Emma Hart read and I'm so damn happy that it was really really good and something that's really hard to put down. I was in dire of a 5 star read and Late Call's timing was just right to fill the spot.

What happens when a call girl is assigned a job to be her first and only love's escort? Insanity, that's what.

Last Call was an exceptionally written story about call girl, Dayton Black aka Mia Lopez and soon to be CEO Aaron Stone. It's written from the first person perspective of Dayton.

Dayton is kind of a jaded, sassy, a super sexy man-eater of a woman who is not only a professional at pleasing men but also at keeping her feelings at bay by using her alter-ego/work name Mia in attempt to separ

First Thoughts:

I wont lie, I was a little skeptical about reading this book because it is an Adult Erotica and well… I have never read an Erotica book before (no I did not read Fifty Shades of Grey)… BUT it was Emma! So I said to myself, if I am ever going to read this genre this is where I am going to get my feet wet because I <3 her so freaking much.

The Characters:

This book focuses on Dayton and Aaron, and I really loved both characters.
