✯4 Intense Stars!!✯✯


This is C.C. Koen debut book and I really enjoyed it. It moved pretty quickly. There were parts that were definitely far fetched for me. But, that didn't make me not like it.

Serena is 21yrs old and her grandma her only family just lost her battle with cancer. Serena is working a bunch of jobs to try and pay off all her grandmothers medical bills. Unfortunately, she couldn't catch up and she lost her grandmothers house. Her childhood home. She doesn't have any friends. Her grandma and her friends were the only friends she had. Now, she's all alone.

Serena becomes friends with Mylaynee and she offers Serena a chance at a job. One that makes a lot of money. As an escort. There's only one big problem. Serena is a virgin. She doesn't think she can do it. But, agrees to go to the interview anyway. Serena would do anything to get her grams house back.

When she gets to the interview she meets Lincoln AKA Linc. He owns the Lounge. Linc owns it for her own personal reasons. He lets all the girls pick and choose what they will and will not do. Linc gives them a place to live. He wants them to feel comfortable and safe at all times.

Linc sees something in Serena. Their connection is instant. Linc can see she is naive, quiet and a virgin. He can also see she is desperate. Linc offers her a job. She will be an exclusive. Serena will work at the Lounge as a bartender and is expected in his bed at night. 

Serena does just that. Though it's not what you'd think. Linc is hot, sexy, very much an alpha and strong. But, he only sleeps next to her. Never crosses a line with her. Not that she wouldn't do it. Serena gets attached to Linc very quickly. Monday through Saturday she sleeps next to Linc.

Serena has become best of friends with Mylaynee and a few other of the girls. And, because she is exclusive to Linc she's also made some enemies with the girls. Serena handles everything pretty good. Her friends, Linc, her jobs and the money is great. For the 1st time in awhile maybe ever she's alive. She's finding herself. She's growing. It's nice to see. 

Linc has a of secrets. Serena has secrets of her own. Mylaynee working with Jax on the side was weird. That had a lot of unanswered questions. I wish some of the stories had some sort of closure. Hopefully, in the next book I'll get some answers and Linc POV. I'd love that. Hahaha

There were times I was dying with laughter and other times holding my breath. It was nice seeing Linc so protective of Serena. Serena changed Linc. And, in a very good way. Can't wait for book 2!
