Review of Whatever You Like by Maureen Smith
Published: November 1, 2010
4 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “Desire burns deepest after dark...
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 companionship 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: two weeks fulfilling all his fantasies, in exchange for a multimillion-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 by Maureen Smith was a story about sparking chemistry and fighting for the person you are meant to be with. I gave Whatever You Like by Maureen Smith 4 smirks because it is a book that draws readers in during the first chapter with the storyline of a professional escort (Lena) and a rich, stubborn man (Roderick) who immediately cannot seem to get enough of each other.
