Ethan

Hockey season is over, and that means one thing—returning home to my empty condo. With nothing to distract me from this loneliness, it’s going to be a miserable summer.

Then I hire Luca for one night.

At least, it was supposed to be one night.

Luca

Ethan isn’t like my other clients (not that I have many these days). He’s nice. He’s genuine. He doesn’t treat me like I’m he

Ethan has a disappointing end to his hockey season, & decides that maybe the off season can be more fun than his hockey season by hiring an escort to stave off loneliness, & this will also assure his privacy.

“That ass looks good in jeans. I'm curious how it looks without them.”

“What was so terrible about paying for sex when getting it for free didn't mean it would be meaningful or honest or even warm? At the end of the night, I'd feel less alone and he'd have more money. Everybody won.”

This book is EVERYTHING I love about romance. It was sweet, sexy, fun, just enough drama, and it put hearts in my eyes. I am a huge sports romance fan and add in the escort aspect and I was IN HEAVEN. Luca and Ethan were just completely perfect together, both lonely and craving a little connection. It was so easy to get completely lost in this story. I absolutely love LA Witt's hockey romances and this is no exception. I am looking forward to the next book in the series because I know the Gentle ...more

This was a great feel good read. As soon as I found it was a hockey player and an escort I just knew I would love the story. Mind you I thought the story would be predictable and go in one direction, even if it was predictable, it didn’t exactly go where I thought it would. A few times I could sympathize with the characters and may have been tearing..just a bit lol. Great job, can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series. I obtained this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review ...more

Pro Hockey player + escort + written by LA Witt = one-click for me! Add age gap to the mix and you have a book that deserves more than 5 stars.

Ethan craved human touch and company, while Luca needed to stand on his feet through college. And when they come together to solve each other's needs, they soon realize that that's the best possible match.

Both Mcs were amazing! I loved their scenes, their banter, their conversations, all of it. There weren't silly issues and unnecessary drama, and the w

ARC Review

This story's the starter title in Gentlemen of the Emerald City. The series is an MM Contemporary Romance. HEA. 3rd person. 2 POV. Past tense.

Sports / Hockey Romance. Closeted Main Character. Escort main character. No cheating. Holiday Romance. Low level angst. Hot, definitely hot. Romantic.

This story is just suitably put together with all the ingeredients mixed properly for it to be really romantic: it's suitably emotional as well as very hot - just perfectly - as well as lots of fun

Rumor has it her arch nemesis, Lauren Gallagher, is also somewhere in the wilds of New England, which is why L.A. is al ...more
