Review: Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven

descriptionMax Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.

 As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough.  Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.

Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story.

Don’t miss this sizzling new standalone from the internationally best selling author of Bad Romeo, Broken Juliet, and Wicked Heart.

I am a BIG FAN of Leisa Rayven's work so when I read the blurb of course I was first In line. I mean hot male escort falls for journalist who wants to find out who Mister Romance really is. The question is though, did I enjoy it? Yep yep I did.. but I did have some issues.. In most part I enjoyed so I'm going to explain my thoughts with you in the best way I can.

So what's it about?
Max Riley is the epitome of SEX. Max is dangerous, sexy, arrogant and so so INTENSE but he is also very sweet and caring. He's a male escort but actually he doesn't have sex with his clients, oh no he just wants to help people and make them feel better by romancing them. Miss Eden Tate is a journalist who's trying to get a name for herself she truly wants to write and sell stories but stories is what she's lacking until she finds out about Mister Romance. So she finds a way to get to know him. They set about three dates to come up with a story but of course there's an agreement of such and then the lines get blurred along the way.

I don't want to go on about the blurb too much as you want to read it for yourself but I will say Max made the story for me, he is truly the selfless man in every scenario. He cares about his clients and he loves people HARD. But Eden does push him in more ways than one.



When I picked this up I FELL HOOK LINE AND SINKER for the story, I loved how it was progressing and I adored Max especially. What I loved in the beginning was how Max knows how to treat the LADDIESS. He's a true gentleman if there ever was one. He gets to know people, see how they tick and work with that. But above all else he wants to just make the women feel good about themselves. So when you say Mister Romance he is ALL THAT in bucketloads.

So why not 5 you ask?
Eden, I liked her I just didn't love her. She has a story to tell but she was a tad selfish for me. You get to 65% then to 75% and then to 80% and they're still not connecting as such. It's very slowww In parts. That said I did really enjoy the story, this is fantasy meaning it's NOT REAL, it's about a guy who pleases many woman to help them cope and live with their own issues. And he falls for the one person he shouldn't. So I'm just enjoying it for what it is.


So do I recommend it? Yes absolutely just be aware this is a slow read you need time to be involved in the characters.

And will I read more by Leisa? Yes yes and yes I loved her writing, actually this book I found her writing to pick up. She writes sentiments and sayings which I highlighted in tenfold.

Enjoy Xoxo
