Book: Under Contract
Author: Jacquelyn Ayres
Genre: Erotic Romance/Erotic Humor
SynopsisCharlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream. Er . . . let’s try this again. Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago. Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . . Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.
This book turned out to be something completely different than what I expected! It is sexy, sassy, sweet and just a damn good love story. Charlotte isn't your typical call girl. She's a call girl virgin and Mitch is going to be the one to pop her cherry, so to speak. At first, these two are very nervous around each other, I picked up on that right away. You could feel the trepidation in Charlotte as she prepared to do whatever she had to to provide for her kids. Mitch came off like I expected him too. All business. BUT, and yes, there's a but, you could tell there was a bit more to him that he let on.
Their banter was funny, their talk sexy and the sex steamy with a touch of sweetness that I don't think either one of the characters was truly prepared for.
While I loved Charlotte and Mitch my favorite character was Charley's sister, CiCi. OMG the mouth on that girl! She is snarky, quick witted and has a wall so high a ninja couldn't jump it. She's the perfect balance to Charlotte. The rest of their crew is just as funny. I love the chemistry between the girls as much as I do the chemisrty between Mitch and Charlotte. It's like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meet Sex in the City. Everyone should have girlfriends like that.
Now back to the sex.
Mitch seems to bring out a side to Charlotte that was hidden from her good for nothing husband. Good thing too, because it doesn't seem like the bastard deserved her. Now not everything is smooth sailing for the call girl and the CEO. Mitch must go through an epiphany of sorts and get his head out of his ass. Just wait until you see who is his biggest cheerleader...Gram. She is awesome.
Now before I give the story away, all I'm going to say is, if you think this is your typical call girl meets CEO you are wrong. It's much more than that. So throw your preconceived notions out the window and just one click this book. I sure hope you enjoy it as much as I did.And don't think we've seen the last of the GEG Club!!!
Meet the Author
I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.
