Standalone. No cliffhanger. HEA. Other books in the series can be read in any order.
Abiding by the rules has never been a struggle for Cato. Being an escort is strict and professional. He clocks in and clocks out like a regular job. He poses as a boyfriend or husband for those who need it, and with his charm and good looks he does it well.
And he doesn’t break the rules.
No Kissing.
No Feelings.
And No Sex.
Ever.
There’s an endless line of beautiful women outside of work, so temptation has never been an issue. They come to him quicker than he can even look in their direction. And as soon as he kicks them out the following morning, he can’t even remember their name.
But when an old flame becomes his new client, someone he let slip through his fingers, will he be able to keep his resolve? Or will he crack?

Dark Escort is a contemporary romance centering on an escort business and the women who turn the escorts’ worlds around. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I don’t really know how to begin this review. On one hand, it was better than the second book, but on the other hand, it wasn’t. Alright, let me start on the romance and work my way around that.

The romance wasn’t half bad. I couldn’t really see the couple as a long lasting couple, but I did like Katarina. She had a spunk to her that set her apart from the other two female leads. Not so apart that she was in a different league. Just apart enough that she had something more going on.

I don’t care for the male lead. He felt too insecure. Yes, that insecurity does make a tad bit of sense. However, the Kat didn’t know what Cato was talking about on numerous occasions and he basically broke everything off like a little girl over a misunderstanding. On the other hand, he expected her to forgive him fairly easy in comparison.

I did like that there was more description going on. I could actually feel like I was in the book versus just being told what was going on or reading a manuscript of dialogue. Not that E.L. Todd has done that, I’m just using that as an example.

All in all, it wasn’t my favorite because of Cato, but I do like Kat. The romance was okay, but my feelings of Cato did hinder that a bit.
