It s the first time that she has to write an article about a male prostitute, a high end prostitute who is working for a very elegant as well as expensive private club, that is Instead of feeling thrilled though, Billie is self conscious and when she meets Adrian, the star of Avalon, things are getting worse The man is a perfect, exotic creature With a body to die for, Adrian is utterly handsome and sexy as all get out Talk about intensity The owner of Avalon, the cold hearted and mean b tch Azure, said to BillieGood luck, Ms Cort Enjoy yourself Adrian has a wonderful way of sliding beneath a woman s skin I d be prepared for anything if I were you Truer words have never been spoken Adrian s seductive gaze unsettles Billie, she feels uncomfortable, however, at the same time it turns her on and thethey talk theshe feels attracted to him Adrian, the masked enigma, is a complex and fascinating character He switched from being a high end prostitute to an incredibly vulnerable and private man in no time flat It was astounding Billie, however, would not be misled and began to unravel the intriguing man As a matter of fact, Billie was the first woman who really touched him to his core Billie caught him off guard, and she put his world upside down Their mutual attraction was fierce and intense, the sexual tension was so palpable and thick that you could cut it with a knife Also, Billie provided the link to the normal life, a life he thought was lost to him She put everything into perspective He fell for her because she was honest, warm and real Besides, Billie epitomized the type of woman he was not used to, a woman he could fall in love with, a woman also who was longing to have a healthy and loving relationship But Adrian didn t do relationships This being said, Billie taught Adrian how to love but at the same time she terrified him immensely because he felt unworthy of her love.What I found remarkable was the fact that Adrian didn t look for cheap excuses, he took all the blameI m the only one who went wrong, Rosie It s not your fault, or Mama or Papa s.Just mine And then my refusal to see my life for what it had become the road to hell It s because you haven t explored sexual boundaries of any sort, Billie, he went on, I d venture to say you re virginal in every aspect except the physical Pleasure could become so familiar to you, so certain and reaffirming, if you felt safe and loved and sure about what you were doing But you don t feel safe when you re giving yourself to a man, do you It terrifies you I want to show you what I do He slid a hand along the back of the sofa and inched toward her I want you to know why women pay for me Billie recovered just in time to flatten a palm against his chest Adrian, no He paused I m sorry no Right That s what I said She swallowed and felt like a child bypassing a jar labeled Free Candy Our track record is beginning to worry me The dry comment brought a reluctant smile to her lips You don t hear no very often, do you I can t remember the last timeSometimes the foreplay with all its sexual tension and chemistry is so stunning that this whole process is even better than the sexual act itself Don t get me wrong Their first real lovemaking was breathlessly beautiful, however, their make out sessions, which I enjoyed tremendously, were incredibly lascivious and lush with emotion they left me wantingandThis story oozes sensuality and temptation as all get out, it s simply mind boggling In fact, the author writes chemistry with an irresistible force, you can t evade it and you can t help but fall for Adrian and Billie It was so sublime I thought I might combust and I was happy to tag along when they embarked upon a very enticing journey into sexual oblivion Well, it goes without saying that The Fifth Favor provides one of the best build up I ve ever read, and I believe that every woman needs a man like Adrian in her life No, scratch that There is only one Adrian and I claim him He is mine and I do not like to shareI won t have sex with you It s not required A somnolent mask dropped over his features as he caught the top button of her blouse between two fingers and unfastened it I can touch you right here on this sofa, in a million different ways Taste you Take you to heaven and back again I m offering you the ultimate research for your article, Billie You can say you don t want what I have to give, but I ll know you re lying They kissed, long and ravenous and angry Catching her hand, he folded it against his chest, where his own heart beat a quickened, steady rhythm Instantly the kiss softened, became languid, a little contrite, laced with lingering desire If you write about us, he said breathlessly, resting his forehead against hers, you ll owe me A favor for a favor She kissed him again, her lips clinging to his No one had ever tasted as good as this man I share the blame This is what you truly wanted to hear from me, and I admit it I m nothing I have nothing of value to give you No heart, not an ounce of love in me It s all been fucked away Shut up, she whispered, leaning her head back against the hard brick rather than look at him Shut up, Adrian You re a liarAdrian s best view spoiler friend went flying Tragic hide spoiler What didn t work for me The Fifth Favor would have been one of my all time favorite books IF the ending had been better It felt too rushed and I was slightly disappointed.The mirror scene was BEAUTIFULWhat are you doing to me he groaned against her lips, his voice feverish and hoarse Whatever it is, don t stop Don t ever stop touching me Don t ever stop loving me I can t stop, she replied, her words shaken as she clutched his hair and stared up into his eyes I don t know howA shout out to one specific GR friend of mineAdrian took Billie to heaven in a hammock bats eyelashes innocently I highly recommend you to read this book I m sure you won t regret it The Fifth Favor is a compellingly written escort story This book will captivate many readers because it s an emotional read that features interesting characters and a very good plot It s all there a little bit of drama and intrigue, really good character, plot and romance development through emotion, steamy yet incredibly tasteful and beautiful erotic scenes Do yourself a favor and read this book This is erotic romance at its very best If you liked or loved Damaged Goods then you will enjoy The Fifth Favor too Also, readers who didn t particularly like Escorted might enjoy The Fifth Favor all theThere is nothing clinical about this story It will turn you on but at the same time it will warm your heart as well Looking back now I m still completely and utterly thrilled when I think of Adrian He will strip you bare and he will be your pleasure, I promise.As a side noteI would like to say thank you to the author for writing a hero with a loving and perfectly normal childhood When was the last time I ve read thatTruth be told, I can t rememberWhat s your pleasure he asked from across the room She met his eyes and leaned to remove first one pump from her foot, then the other YouSteam 3.5 to 4Chemistry 5Sensuality
