Jocelyn Rhodes is a single mother with a demanding career and a long-neglected libido. Frustrated with the dating scene and way overdue for some satisfying sex, she takes a friend's advice and hires Sabian, a deliciously sexy escort. He's well worth the money, and the sheets haven't even cooled off before she's ready to call him again.

The more time she spends with him, the more she realizes she and Sabian have important things in common. For starters, she's a single mom, he's a prostitute, so when it comes to dating, they're both damaged goods. To most potential mates, Jocelyn and Sabian are in a category akin to dented soup cans, but if the two of them can look past each other's respective dents, they just might find something they've both been missing.

But even if they do find that something, how on earth can she make a relationship work with a man who sleeps with other women for a living?

DAMAGED GOODS is a solid five star read. It's chocked full of the emotion you long for when reading a great romance and the steam you expect from any naughty little erotica.

So you have undoubtedly read the description of DAMAGED GOODS and you know that this is a story about a lonely single mother named Jocelyn who hires an escort to fulfill her fantasies for a night...or at least that was the original plan. I saw her emotional attachment to the man coming from a mile away... How could you not become emotionally attached to someone who is fulfilling your desires and meeting needs that haven't truly ever been met? I would say that it is nearly impossible to keep your heart out of it.

DAMAGED GOODS addresses the social stigma attached to being a prostitute and dating one - these were, of course, of no surprise to me. One point that was brought up, however that made me look at this scenario a little differently though is this: what is the difference between a woman who pays for an escort - meaning time, company and possibly sex and a woman who goes on a date with a man in return for a nice dinner, date, an expensive flower arrangement and possibly a piece of jewelry and maybe a little action? Something to think about!

If you are in the mood for a great story that's full of emotion and hot scenes, then look no further than DAMAGED GOODS.
