Living in Sin (Escort #1) Review

lis8Living In Sin
By: Isabel Lucero
Released 1/1/14


Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?



When I first read the synopsis to this book I thought to myself "this is a book for me!"Let me just start by saying Isabel Lucero didn't disappoint. She went well above what I expected out of this book. Walking away and looking back I would give this book well over 5 stars if I could.

The entire story kept me engaged. I didn't want to put it down.
When I started reading the first chapter I couldn't believe it started with a foursome! I was like holy hell! I was then afraid that the book would go downhill from that. I mean really coming out the gate with sex packed action? Where is there to go from there?

Well let me tell you there is plenty to go from there! At the start of the book I found myself agreeing with Em. And that Adrianne should just use him for a booty call. (Who wouldn't want all that hotness from GLC?) But further into the book I felt myself rooting for the relationship to form and for it to become something other then just hot amazing sex.

The same thing goes on with Em and Troy. Honestly their story line made me angry. I was like enough already just give it up to him. The teasing each other kind of got on my nerves and I felt their story was drawn out even though it never really went anywhere in the book. It was just the same thing over and over. But then at the very end of the book it all made sense so I am no longer mad. Just very excited.

I found myself laughing at some of the conversations, because I could see myself and my friends talking the way Em and Adrianne did. It was like I was really there in their conversation. I love when an author can do that. I really enjoy books that draw me into the settings and make me feel a part of the story.

The texts from GLC (Jace) and Adrianne were also funny, but they made perfect sense as it was coming from a real life point of view.

My overall opinion of this book: Characters were wonderful. They were well written. They all worked together to form a great book. Each character showed their own characteristics, with back stories.  I could easily imagine the characters in my mind while I read thanks to the description that was hinted at each character. The plot was great. I loved this story as it is one I could see happening in a real life setting.  And I could also imagine the entire story in my mind while I was reading.

So by all means run out and pick up this book or start clicking one of the links below to purchase the ebook. Set aside time before you start reading as this is one hot book you won't want to put down!



It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve had the best sex of my life. I thought fucking him would settle a craving, and I’d be good to go for a while. Instead, it awakened a sexual beast that I had living inside of me. It’s all I think about now.


I want it.

I need it.

I fantasize about Jace and his huge hands doing wonderful things to my body. I can still remember the way his tongue felt as he slid it into my pussy, and the warmth of his mouth as his lips encircled my clit. I was sore for days. My entire body ached from the pounding he gave me. I’ve used my fingers and my vibrator, and neither one will do. I crave his body like a pregnant woman craves pickles and ice cream.

How can I tell him that I want to use his body for my own pleasure? What would I even say to him? I’ve never had to chase after a guy. I haven’t asked anybody out on a date, haven’t initiated the first kiss, and certainly haven’t asked anybody if they want to be fuck buddies. I just can’t do that. Plus, I have no idea how to get ahold of him. I only know where he lives, and I definitely won’t be showing up to his suite like some sort of stalker psycho.

I groan and force myself to get out of bed. Before I make it to the bathroom, my phone vibrates on my nightstand. It’s Em.


“Wake up, we have plans,” she says excitedly.

“Ugh. No. I can’t deal with your happiness right now.”

“Too bad. Get up because we have places to be.”

“How come I never know about our plans until the last minute?”

“I don’t know. I’m on my way over. It’s already ten, so stop being a lazy bum.”

The phone clicks and I go use the bathroom, brush my teeth, and pull my hair into a messy bun on top of my head. I put on some shorts, flip flops and a white tank top. By the time I’m dressed, I hear Em banging on the door like she’s the cops.

“Hey! Why are you trying to break my door down?” I say as I pull the door open.

She gives me a shrug. “I thought maybe you had gone back to sleep, so I was prepared to wake you up.”

“Well, I proved you wrong. I’m ready and everything, see?” I say, extending my arms and showing her that I’m dressed.

She eyes me with a disgusted look on her face. “If that’s what you call ready. It doesn’t matter anyway. We’re going to go get pampered. Nails, hair, waxing.”

“Waxing?” I say, interrupting her. “I think I’ll pass. Last time you convinced me to get waxed, my hoo-ha was sore for days! No thank you.”

“Stop being so dramatic,” she laughs. “I’m sorry. Last time the chick was new. This time, it won’t be the same one. I promise. We need to go get prettied up, go out to dinner with these two, hopefully-not-lame bitches, and then hit a club up and find some sexy men to dance with. That’s the plan.”

She says the last part with finality, flips her hair over her shoulder and walks towards out door.

“I guess I could use a few drinks,” I say, following her down the hall.

“Still not over the king?” she asks with a laugh.

“Oh shush,” I say, playfully pushing her.

“Hell, from what you told me, I wouldn’t be over him either. I’d be scaling the building trying to get to him.”

A loud and embarrassing laugh escapes my throat. A few people nearby all turn and look in our direction. Ignoring the stares, I continue to laugh. “Oh my gosh, Em. You’re too much. I picture you climbing the building like Spiderman and shit. Oh God, that’s too funny,” I say, unable to stop my laughter.

“You think I’m playing. I’d be camped out on that balcony waiting to pounce him.” She lets out a small laugh at herself. “I think you’re crazy for not wanting to be with him again. You said yourself he was amazing in bed…and huge! It’s not like you’re getting any elsewhere.” She gives me a pointed look.

“Well, thanks for reminding me,” I say and roll my eyes. “I don’t know what you think I’m supposed to do. I don’t have his number, and showing up to his place would be desperate and sad. I won’t do that.”

Emilie lets out a dramatic sigh. “Whatever. Guess you’ll have to find you another man tonight. He probably won’t be God-like, or be as good in bed, or have a huge…”

“Okay!” I say, interrupting her sentence. “I get it. Let’s just go.”
