Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
This story begins with a contract.
And an exchange of money.
A lot of money.
An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.
A devil lounges smugly on my other.
And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.

Oh well🤷🏾♀️, I found this book to be a carbon copy of the Beauty series written by this author and honestly that was a MUCH better version. This was super cheesy to me and annoying.
For instance, apparently Lou/ Cait is super judgmental and inexperienced, yet it took her friend less than a sec to talk her into becoming an escort. And Max is supposed to be so private, wealthy, and broken... but he quickly began taking risks with being ...more
I loved the cover and the blurb made me curious. Having only read this author once before I did not get the common themes she talked about, so to me, this was basically all new.
Cait or Lou, is like many, struggling to make ends meet and trying to work her way through school. She is about to embark on something new to make those ends meet, she just never expected it to be as an escort. Max or Hutch, is looking for the girlfriend experience. Recently widowed, in-laws on his back, ...more
I didn’t mind at all that 81 nights had similarities with the author’s previous series.
It was captivating, very well developed, the characters so vivid that I could feel all their emotions and the plot was intriguing and fascinating. 💖
This is the story of a girl named lucky..
Totally kidding ..

"Biology means nothing. Love means everything. The rest will fall into place."
It is with a heavy heart that I say I’m not very impressed with this book. I’ve battled with the story and was kind of hoping that by the next chapter I’ll change my mind, but I didn’t. Sadly there just wasn’t enough character development along the way to build the story around. It went stale that some chapters felt redundant, that I got kind of bored in the end.
Maxwell Hutcheson is a widower. He's lonely ...more
Going into this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. The author reveals upfront that this duet has some parts similar to her previous releases, her "favorite parts", so to speak. So, while I was worried that this book would be too similar to other books, I was also intrigued. Could she still pull off something fresh?
Thankfully, she did.
Although this book isn't what I typically read in romance now, it is certainly reminiscent of what I used to read and that made the reading experience a ...more
This is a new one. An author who basically plagiarizes her own work in a compilation story of different books she's already published and it's supposed to be all shiny and new just because she inserted new characters to do it. Yeah, that doesn't change the story any to change names and come up a combo story that reads like someone put bits of this and that into a blender. It's also pretty cheeky to charge $4.99 for something fans have basica ...more

Georgia Cates is a new author to me. I was intrigued when I read the blurb and thought it was a great opportunity to dive in to a new author. Be prepared you need to wait for book two to get the conclusions to their story.
