*** I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. ***

The giddy delight I get when I meet a new or new-to-me author’s words is HEAVEN! That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I popped my Leisa Rayven cherry with a ROMANCE EXPLOSION called Mister Romance and it was PHENOMENAL!!! Mister Romance is a burst of smolder and swoon that blazes and burns, melting everywhere!!!

It was the absolute perfect balance between sexy, steamy romance, laugh-out-loud humor, deep emotions, and deliciously intense angst!! True to Leisa Rayven's signature style, this book was well-written, addictive, intriguing, and utterly UNPUTDOWNABLE!! This is definitely a top recommendation for every rom

It’s everything I knew kissing him would be, and right now, even my fear isn’t enough to drag me off him. It’s the only time I’ve ever felt like I was awake and dreaming at the same time.
We kiss each other like we’re afraid to stop. Like the world could come crashing down in a fiery apocalypse around us, and neither of us would notice.

Eden is an investigative journalist who's talents have been wasted at a dead end job. She wants to use her talents to get ahead, so she decides to go after a story about an elusive man known as Mister Romance. MR is an escort who makes a ton of money taking women on dates. No sex, just

I feel like the quality of this year's books is especially high. I haven't had so many 4 and 5 stars ever and right now I'm on a roll. Mr. Romance totally took me by surprise in the most perfect way.

Eden is on her last leg at her job at Pulse magazine when she gets wind of a man named Mister Romance, a high paid escort who gives women the most romantic night of their dreams, without sex. Intrigued, Eden makes it her mission to find out who this mystery man is. When she does find him, he wants to make her a deal: if he can make her fall in love with him in three dates, Eden drops the story. If not, she gets full exclusive.

Much as the blurb says, Eden Tate sets upon getting an interview with Mister Romance, a man that makes your fantasy come true.

First off the blurb was awesome, when you read the summary it what really hooks the readers to try and check it out, that did it for me.

When we hear the word escort, we totally associate it with sex right? I mean they are like high standardized version of hooker it you know what I mean. So when Eden Tate's job was on the rocks, what more juicy scope of a story more interesting than this passes it off. This isn't the normal escort service we are talking about here, Mr. Romance, that's what they

Review @ Midnight Romance

Confession time! I'm conflicted to read this book at first. This was my first read from Leisa Rayven. The title and blurb sounds cheesy and so girly. Yikes, but the cover is totally eye-catching and won my heart. Anyway, I almost DNF this right away because the heroine was sooo unlikable. But I survived when I have my answers.

DNF AT 40% - NO RATING

My biggest issue with Mister Romance was the fact that it had quite unbelievable sled of events. My another problem was that I didn't feel the romance and connection. And even Mrs. Rayven's legendary couple chemistry (that I loved so much in her previous books) wasn't very potent in this book; I dare to say that it was missing completely in the first half of the book that I managed to read.

No one is more sorry than me that I had to put this novel on my DNF shelf.

There was a talk among the socialite women about "Mister Romance", an in-demand escort who gives romance to women depending on their fantasies. When people hear escort, they assumed this person sleeps with his clients. Mister Romance uses different personas when dating his clients and it's strictly no sex policy. No one knows his true identity and Eden Tate, an investigative journalist from Pulse, wants to write an article about him and his deceitful business.

Eden needs a good article and fast if she wants to keep her journalism job. So when she hears about a male escort by the name of Mister Romance she thinks if she writes about him she'll score big time. That's if she can get him to do an interview.

Max is a high paid escort, but there's a catch, he doesn't sleep with the women. He shows them affection, things they crave, but can he get Eden to drop her story and fall in love with him?
