Standalone. No cliffhanger. HEA. Other books in the series can be read in any order.
Being an escort comes with predetermined rules that can never be broken.
No kissing, no feelings, and definitely, absolutely, no sex.
But what will Troy do when Harper, a beautiful blonde, walks into his life. Still suffering over the lost of his long-time girlfriend, Troy is trying to move on and find his place in life. He still doesn’t understand why the relationship ended or why she cheated. As a result, love is off the table.
When Harper hypnotizes him with her beauty, sass, and remarkable intelligence, what will he do? Will be able to keep his promise to himself?
Or will he break every rule?

I received this book by the author for an honest review.

Gorgeous Consort  is a standalone contemporary romance centering on the men of an escort company and the women who flip their world. This is the second in a series, but you don’t need to read the first one to understand this one.

Troy is a guy who likes to pretend he’s a playboy. Why? Because his heart was broken a while back and was never put back together. Harper is a girl who just wants her parents to stop comparing her to her model sister. The two make a deal to help each other out. Harper will help Troy get over that girl and Troy will pose as Harper’s boyfriend. Naturally, drama ensues.

The romance between the two wasn’t bad. It took a while for them to consumate and announce their feelings. I liked the progression and the speed it was going. It felt believable in that way.

However, I felt the book comprised mostly of dialogue. I wasn’t able to see what was going on, learn their mannerisms, fall in love with them as characters. It helped I read the first book where both play good supporting roles. I could see who they were in that book, but this one fell flat.

All in all, it wasn’t a bad romance, but it wasn’t a favorite.
