***A MALE ESCORT/BROTHERS BEST FRIEND ROMANCE***
Matt Quinn has been an escort for most of his adult life. He’s so good at his job that he’s booked months in advance.
An enquiring email from a potential client finds him intrigued about the shy, awkward woman. A back and forth is started and before Quinn knows it, a friendship is formed.
Time passes and Quinn is smitten.
There’s only one problem…
The client is his best friends little sister.
She’s off limits.
He knows better.
Staying away from one another is easier said than done.
The synopsis for this book says a male escort and a friend to lover (brother’s best friend) storyline, both storylines that I love! So of course I was excited to dive into this book. While I enjoyed this book, unfortunately I didn’t love it. I’m really not even sure what kept me from loving it, because I did love the friendship between Quinn and Mia and I’m glad that the author decided to not rush their relationship and gave the readers a chance to see their connection without it being insta-love.
“I’m not boyfriend material. If that’s what you’re after, that’s not me.”
Mia is a shy 27-year old virgin that is ready to come out of her shell and also more than ready to lose her v-card. She has selected Quinn, male escort and best friend to her brother Harry, as the man for the job. She has crushed on him for the past few years and feels he is the perfect choice. What she doesn’t count on is the friendship, witty banter, and endless converstaions she shares with Quinn and then the explosive connection they share. Her feelings for Quinn are strong, but she fears she wants more than Quinn is able to give her.
“I want your smiles. I want to hear your laugh. This is us, Mia. Just us. I dont’ want fake, I want it all.”
I loved seeing the changes in Quinn throughout the book. He really grew into an amazing man, friend, and lover. He stepped up and was willing to make changes in order to keep Mia in his life. I loved that! However, I will admit that some of the sex scenes with his clients and with Mia were beyond cheesy. There is dirty talking and then there is just gross and icky. Mia was a likeable main character. She is a good friend, loving sister, and is devoted to those she cares about.
This book is told in dual points of view (POV) which I enjoyed. Although there were a few chapters where we got to hear other characters “voices” which was a little weird. They came out of nowhere and didn’t really flow or fit with the story.
About Last Night was a quick read that is a standalone and ends with a HEA (happily ever after).
