ADVERTISING FOR LOVE is certainly different, serving up a unique tale that is sure to test anyone's boundaries.
Aisha Anderson hires an escort to help her get through a company function. And when she sees the hottie, she decides to act on her lust (as advised by her friend) and tumbles with him onto the sheets, never realizing that it could turn into more. However, when she meets one of Greg's previous clients, she has to decide if she could be with a man who has bedded half the city's women.
There's nothing salacious in this story, and our hero has been with no other woman since meeting our heroine. What there is is mention of his clients and the encounter with one, who wants to share details. It may be a personal preference, but I still find it hard to wrap my head around the idea of a prostitute hero. Well, a male version of a high-end call girl, definitely. Not that they don't deserve a happy ending, but like I said, I'm not used to this kind of hero, so it was hard to warm up to him. Although the author did make him seem sympathetic, what with his background, thus the need to go into this business.
When Aisha met the woman who wanted to share the intimate details, Aisha couldn't take it and she ran. I empathize with her, truly. I can understand how she feels, and why she'd feel that way. What I object to was that we didn't read any internal growth/realization from her rejection to acceptance. It would've been great to include it because that's when we would've seen this character grow and take on depth.
Overall, ADVERTISING FOR LOVE is a short, fun, sizzling read.
