Book Review: 'A Gentleman For Hire' by Olivia Starke

Enough sizzling to melt the screen…Vegas hasn’t seen anything like Michael and Kimberly.
This short story definitely packed the heat. The chemistry between the hero and heroine practically leaped off the computer screen. I needed to know what would happen and couldn’t put the short story down.
I liked Kimberly. She’s very much the ball-busting businesswoman. It’s refreshing to read a heroine so in control and composed. Plus, it’s nice for her to be the millionaire-type for a change. I loved reading her struggle for control and the ending…whew!! Hot.
Michael…I had some misgivings about him. His tendency to bite his bottom lip…I don’t know. It pulled me out of the story. But the gesture worked for Kimberly, so no harm, no foul. I liked how he was so masculine and controlled, too. Some readers might not expect some of the things he says or the alluding to being with a man. That might be a turn-off for some readers, but not this one. I liked how this snippet showed his devotion to his job and his willingness to put himself into the shoes of the women he’s escorting.
As I said above, the story sizzles. The sex scenes are off the charts and worth a second read.
If you want a hot, but short book to fill the lunch hour, then this might be the short story for you.
