Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Daniel Sinclair is on his way to San Francisco to finish a deal. He swings by his girlfriend’s apartment to pick up some papers he left. He walks in on something he wasn’t expecting. After he leaves he no longer has a girlfriend or a lawyer. He has to call his best friend Tim in San Francisco to help him out. He wants an escort to take to the reception for protection.

Holly gets the call but she is sick. She talks her roommate Sabrina into taking her place. Sabrina decides to throw caution to the wind and be Holly for a night. She agrees to be Daniel’s escort. There is an instant attraction for both of them but they have a business arrangement. Sabrina accompanies Daniel and protects him from the eligible women by being herself. The night ends exactly how she wants it. She feels beautiful and special.

When he requests her for another night Sabrina has to keep up the ruse. However the night doesn’t end the way either of them wants. Sabrina is hurt and feels stupid for being used. Daniel refuses to let her go and tries to track her down. The truth comes out when he comes face to face with the real Holly. He still refuses to give up and enlists his friend Tim in planning to win Sabrina.

Of course the weekend ends up ruined when an unexpected guest arrives and everything comes falling down around Sabrina. She is devastated. Daniel will have to pull out all the stops if he plans to fix it.

I liked this book. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved the plot. Sabrina is not an escort but pretends to be one. You know that it will cause all sorts of problems in the long run. Of course it did and Sabrina gets burned, but she is the cause for most of it. Her insecurities and fears get in the way. Her past experiences with love color any positive possibilities that occur. I honestly think that half of the things that happened to Sabrina in this story are mostly her own doing.

Daniel was a surprise. He is a workaholic and seems distant. He is virtually surprised when he walks in on Audrey. It is funny how his best friend Tim sets him up completely. It was surprising how everything happened in the first place. The author threw in a fun twist that had me laughing and saying no way. The story evolved into a great must read love story. I give it a 4 out of 5.
