Hunter Wolf is a highly paid Las Vegas escort with a face and body that have men salivating and paying a great deal for him to fulfill their fantasies. He keeps his own fantasies to himself, not that they matter.
Grant is an elementary-school teacher who works miracles with his summer school students. He discovered his gift while in high school, tutoring Hunter, a fellow student. They meet again when Hunter rescues Grant in a club. Grant doesn’t know Hunter is an escort or that they share similarly painful pasts involving family members’ substance abuse.
After the meeting, Hunter invites Grant to one of the finest restaurants in Las Vegas. Hunter is charming, sexy, and gracious, and Grant is intrigued. With more in common than they realized, the two men decide to give a relationship a try. At first, Grant believes he can deal with Hunter’s profession and accepts that Hunter will be faithful with his heart if not his body. Both men find their feelings run deeper than either imagined. For Grant, it’s harder than he thought to accept Hunter’s occupation, and Hunter’s feelings for Grant now make work nearly impossible. But Hunter’s choice of profession comes with a price, which could involve Grant’s job and their hearts—a price that might be too high for either of them to pay.
High priced escort + school teacher = hotness. Grant is a teacher and Hunter is an escort. Hunter saves Grant when his date goes bad in a club. Hunter and Grant go on a date and realize that they have a lot in common and decide to give dating a shot. Hunter tells Grant what he does for a living and Grant tries to deal with it, he really does try, I am not sure I would have been able to. As their relationship grows Hunter can’t help but realize his feelings are getting stronger and if he wants to be with Grant he has to make some changes. Hunter and his fellow escorts are a tight group of friends and after speaking to several of them he makes a choice especially once his job starts affecting Grants job. This book did a good job portraying what Hunter’s life is like and how everything isn’t as flashy and wonderful as it seems. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others.
