Title: Perfect Ten
Author: Michelle Craig
Release Date: August 28, 2014
Joseph Starling Jr. was in the right place at the right time. It didn’t take him long to discover his particular talent. He knew how to make a woman feel good. If she wasn’t screaming out his name, purring like a kitten or clawing at him like a lioness, he had failed. Mediocre was not a word in his vocabulary. Her enjoyment was so important to him that his own pleasure was a secondary concern.
Faith Graham was nothing like the women he was required to date as an escort—it was what he liked about her from the first time he saw her. She was imperfect and insecure. Her hair was a bit on the wild side, and her clothes were slightly rumpled. But her curves! They were alluring. She had curves where most of the elite clientele he mingled with had straight lines, and not an ounce of softness to be found. Shocking him to his core, she didn’t want anything to do with him.
Joe had always thought that working as an escort for Perfect Ten was a dream come true, but he was beginning to wonder if there was more to life than raking in the cash and having his pick of women on any given night. Could he start over with a new direction in life, or was he already at the age of twenty-six too jaded? Was there more out there for Joe Starling or was he destined to be a boy toy at the whim of any woman rich enough to afford him?

Joe Starling stumbled into a young man’s dream of a job. Literally stumbled. He has been a male escort for the past several years and the fringe benefits are phenomenal. While it is not in his job description to sleep with the clients, what is a single young guy to do when a beautiful woman asks for sex? Hot sex with wealthy, beautiful women and you get paid for it that is a perfect life.
Faith Graham has always been insecure about her looks and weight. Her mother and sisters are constantly commenting on what she wears and what she eats. Now while she is not a size zero or a size six like they are for that matter, she is content with her life and her size 16 jeans and chest that come with the added padding. Needing a date for her sister’s wedding, she was going to go solo until her best friends chipped in to hire an escort to be her date for the wedding. Going to the agency to meet the man who will accompany her, she takes one look at Joe and lets out a loud no, this will not work. He is tall, dark and handsome, and no one will ever believe he is dating her.
Joe takes one look at the strawberry blonde woman looking at him and is entranced with her eyes. Glancing down her body he notes an ample chest and bottom he would love to grab onto and….! His thoughts are interrupted at her loud dismissal of the idea that he should be the one to accompany her. No one has ever turned him down and now he wants to get to know her. Talking to her and being with her, he is attracted to her sweet nature and kind personality. The sexual chemistry that is between them is also off the charts. When there one “date” ends and Joe asks to see her again, her self-doubts take over. What would a man like her see in a plus sized girl like her? Plus could she deal with him seeing other women, dating other women? When Joe realizes he does want something more, and is willing to give up everything for her will it be too late? Can she give him the second chance everyone deserves?
This was such a great book! There is humor and a little heartbreak but with the HEA, I couldn’t be happier. 4.5 stars
Author BioAbout me. Let's see. I work full time as a bookkeeper in a law firm located in Old City, Philadelphia. I've been there for almost ten years now. I am a country girl at heart and am more than ready to get home to my country living in South Jersey at the end of the day, but it's nice to get a taste of the city too.
I have a B.S.B.A. in Human Resource Management. If I have any valuable advice to give, it's go to college directly after high school! I didn't finish with my degree until I was thirty-eight.
I am married for almost twenty years with no children. We prefer the furry kind, although I love, love, love my niece and nephew.
I write under two names. I use my real name, Nikki Worrell, for my hockey romance series (www.nikkiworrell.com) and Michelle Craig for my erotic romances. I picked the name Michelle Craig because my middle name is Michelle and my husband's name is Craig.
