Jace Jamison is every womans fantasy. Hes a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. Hes a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasnt getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, shes constantly working at numerous events. Several times shes seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. Hes devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but hes always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who shes seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isnt dating these women because he wants to, but because hes paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what hes never had? A woman who wants him despite what hes done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?


Well, Living In Sin certainly starts with a bang!! **fans myself**. Not gonna tell you what happens, but boy I think my Kindle caught fire, it was pretty damn hot!
 Jace.  Every woman's eye is drawn to him when he is in the room.  Sexy.  Confident.  So good looking that even a supermodel would think she was not hot enough for him.

Adrienne is a successful business woman, smart and sassy.  Single and in a long sexual drought.

She has seen Jace at events before, but thinks he is a man whore as he is always with a different woman - no thanks!

What neither of them knows is that they have each seen the other person and interest is piqued.  She is his "mystery woman" he sees one night, he is the player, even if he is a God-Like Creater (GLC)

When they finally get together, boy do those sparks fly.  I loved how they were both drawn to each other.  As much as it was supposed to be a one night only thing on both sides, they can't help but want more.

Adrienne was great.  It was a nice change to have a woman who did not just fall into his bed and roll over and beg because "OMG he is sooooo hot".  She stood her ground and made Jace fight to be with her. 

Jace is the ultimate sweet talker.  Heck, with all his years in his chosen career, he could sell ice to eskimos!   Seriously, who wouldn't melt if he was saying this about you, and you are what he wants?

"Well, I hope she doesn't have a date. We're just friends because she refuses to date me,"

 But behind all the talk, there is a man who has suffered, who is still suffering for things in his past.  And he is also not all talk, he follows it all up with with his actions.

Of course, we have the requisite outside forces trying to keep the pair apart.  There were a couple of secondary characters that I really just wanted to say "really?" to.  

I loved the secondary characters.  Adrienne's best friend Em was great.  

And then there are Jace's best friends, and fellow escorts - Nico, Kade, Mark and Troy.  Have you ever watched the TV show Gigolos?  No?  Well the way these boys interact is like reading an episode of it (now go and NetFlix it!!)

What will happen if Adrienne finds out about his job?  Will he ever give it up?  Can their relationship withstand it all?
 Oh no, I will never tell!  For that you are going to have to read Living In Sin for yourself.

This is the first I have read of Ms Lucero's work, and I found it a well written, well paced story that kept my attention (especially after I got past the first 10% after the "Big Bang" beginning, when Adrienne came into the story.

Now, to find my own Jace when I hit Sin City later this year!!

Its been almost two weeks since Ive had the best sex of my life. I thought fucking him would settle a craving, and Id be good to go for a while. Instead, it awakened a sexual beast that I had living inside of me. Its all I think about now.


I want it.

I need it.

I fantasize about Jace and his huge hands doing wonderful things to my body. I can still remember the way his tongue felt as he slid it into my pussy, and the warmth of his mouth as his lips encircled my clit. I was sore for days. My entire body ached from the pounding he gave me. Ive used my fingers and my vibrator, and neither one will do. I crave his body like a pregnant woman craves pickles and ice cream.

How can I tell him that I want to use his body for my own pleasure? What would I even say to him? Ive never had to chase after a guy. I havent asked anybody out on a date, havent initiated the first kiss, and certainly havent asked anybody if they want to be fuck buddies. I just cant do that. Plus, I have no idea how to get a hold of him. I only know where he lives, and I definitely wont be showing up to his suite like some sort of stalker psycho.

I groan and force myself to get out of bed. Before I make it to the bathroom, my phone vibrates on my nightstand. Its Em.


Wake up, we have plans, she says excitedly.

Ugh. No. I cant deal with your happiness right now.

Too bad. Get up because we have places to be.

How come I never know about our plans until the last minute?

I dont know. Im on my way over. Its already ten, so stop being a lazy bum.

The phone clicks and I go use the bathroom, brush my teeth, and pull my hair into a messy bun on top of my head. I put on some shorts, flip flops and a white tank top. By the time Im dressed, I hear Em banging on the door like shes the cops.

Hey! Why are you trying to break my door down? I say as I pull the door open.

She gives me a shrug. I thought maybe you had gone back to sleep, so I was prepared to wake you up.

Well, I proved you wrong. Im ready and everything, see? I say, extending my arms and showing her that Im dressed.

She eyes me with a disgusted look on her face. If thats what you call ready. It doesnt matter anyway. Were going to go get pampered. Nails, hair, waxing.

Waxing? I say, interrupting her. I think Ill pass. Last time you convinced me to get waxed, my hoo-ha was sore for days! No thank you.

Stop being so dramatic, she laughs. Im sorry. Last time the chick was new. This time, it wont be the same one. I promise. We need to go get prettied up, go out to dinner with these two, hopefully-not-lame bitches, and then hit a club up and find some sexy men to dance with. Thats the plan.

She says the last part with finality, flips her hair over her shoulder and walks towards out door.

I guess I could use a few drinks, I say, following her down the hall.

Still not over the king? she asks with a laugh.

Oh shush, I say, playfully pushing her.

Hell, from what you told me, I wouldnt be over him either. Id be scaling the building trying to get to him.

A loud and embarrassing laugh escapes my throat. A few people nearby all turn and look in our direction. Ignoring the stares, I continue to laugh. Oh my gosh, Em. Youre too much. I picture you climbing the building like Spiderman and shit. Oh God, thats too funny, I say, unable to stop my laughter.

You think Im playing. Id be camped out on that balcony waiting to pounce him. She lets out a small laugh at herself. I think youre crazy for not wanting to be with him again. You said yourself he was amazing in bedand huge! Its not like youre getting any elsewhere. She gives me a pointed look.

Well, thanks for reminding me, I say and roll my eyes. I dont know what you think Im supposed to do. I dont have his number, and showing up to his place would be desperate and sad. I wont do that.

Emilie lets out a dramatic sigh. Whatever. Guess youll have to find you another man tonight. He probably wont be God-like, or be as good in bed, or have a huge…”

Okay! I say, interrupting her sentence. I get it. Lets just go.
