SUMMARY
By day, Lena Morrison is an ambitious grant writer. By night, she's an escort to some of Chicago's most successful men. Sex isn't on the menu—Lena's job is to provide her elite clients with comanionship and sparkling conversation. She enjoys the extra income, but even more, Lena loves the empowering feeling of being appreciated for her beauty and her brains.

When tycoon Roderick Brand hires Lena as his date for a private party, their electric attraction leads to the most erotic night of her life. Incredible as the experience is, she vows not to mix work and pleasure again. But Roderick is relentless. His irresistible proposal: three weeks fulfilling all his fantasies, in exchange for a million-dollar grant that will guarantee Lena a major promotion.

Lena can play that game. She'll give him the hottest, wildest sex he's ever had, then she'll walk away, leaving him aching for more. But when it comes to desire, rules—and hearts— are easily broken. And the best-laid plans have a way of working out in ways neither could expect

WHATEVER YOU LIKE is irresistible. He can't resist her. She can't resist him. And I couldn't resist an afternoon of passion, lust and love. This is the respectable take on PRETTY WOMAN. WHATEVER YOU LIKE is just what I like.

Lena works two jobs to keep her grandfather and sister living the life they have become accustomed to. By day she works at the local university writing grants. By night she is an escort. No she doesn't sleep with clients. She is a well educated, good looking female who serves as a date on important business outings.

Able to speak three languages, Lena is requested to accompany Roderick Brand to a party he is throwing on his yacht for a Japanese company he wants to purchase. Lena's ability to converse in Japanese and her knowledge of their customs wins over the clients and earns her the respect of Mr. Brand.

But respect isn't all that is present. They are both undeniably attracted to each other. So much so that they break the contract rules and sleep together. This is a mistake she has made once before with horrific results, and she is not going to make that mistake again. She is determined to never see Roderick again.

Roderick is a man who knows how to get what he wants. And he wants Lena. He actually purchases a foundation that is giving the grant Lena most wants. He offers her University more than they requested, if Lena will be at his beck and call for three weeks.
These two are hot and wild, and dare I say, ‘creative'. It had some Pretty Woman elements to it, but this was far steamier and more endearing. Both of them are the caretakers of their families. No one takes care of them, so it was wonderful to see them care for each other.
There are funny moments, especially with her grandfather and sister, and there are tender moments. But three days later, what I really remember is their connection. Physically and emotionally. They've had relationships, but they've never had love, and that is a joy to watch unfold.

It's a quick novella length read. All those hopeless romantics out there are just going to swoon for Roderick and Lena. Check it out..and Enjoy!
