Title: Love Starved
Author: Kate Fierro
Publication date and length: April 21,2015 304 pages
Micah Geller considers himself lucky: at 27, he has more money than he needs, a job he loves, a debut book coming out, and a brilliant career in information security before him. What he doesn’t have is a partner to share it with—a fact that’s never bothered him much. But the romantic in him isn’t entirely dead. When a moment of weakness finds him with a contact to a high-class escort specializing in fulfilling fantasies, Micah asks for only one thing: Show me what it’s like to feel loved.
This was a beautiful story. Micah takes a chance on a escort service to fulfill his fantasy of feeling loved. You would think that you would wonder is the escort giving you what you paid for or is it for real. This is Micah and Angel’s story. A very well put together story that has you hoping for the HEA.
Micah was a lonely and scared man, but I thought that he didn’t let himself go to enjoy himself. Angel had tons of secrets, but treated Micah with respect and love. The relationship that develops between the two is beautiful. I felt Aiden taught Micah so much about relationships and love, and brought out the best in him.
There was one secondary character I thought added so much to the book. Daphne, Micah’s friend, she was loud, bubbly and very nosey. She was always there for Micah.
I enjoyed reading this book very much. It is a perfect book if your looking for HEA.
This is a sweet, romantic story that made me laugh, cry, and believe in true love all over again. I couldn’t put it down.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt. I liked Micah right away, but I didn’t care at all for Daphne. However, her obnoxious behavior set the stage for one of the most fun, heartbreaking, wonderful love stories I’ve read in ages. The whole thing felt a lot like some of my favorite date movies—neither a tragic, overwrought drama nor an over-the-top comedy, this had a nice blend of emotions, action, and humor.
I absolutely fell in love with Angel right along with Micah. Even though being an escort wasn’t his dream in life, he was not ashamed of who he was. I liked the dynamic with Micah, too. He was worried his family would think less of him, but he himself was also never ashamed of Angel. No wonder, because even though we never see inside Angel’s head, I think he’s one of the most complex and interesting characters I’ve read in a long time. Plus, I always love when bisexual men are well-represented, and Ms. Fierro does an excellent job.
The only negative thing I have to say is that I think it was a chapter too long. There was nothing in the last chapter that really added to the story, and it kind of cheapened the resolution of Micah and Angel’s relationship for me.
Other than that, this was fantastic. Anyone who needs a dose of optimism is sure to feel all warm and fuzzy inside after reading.
