“The Girlfriend Experience”
Marianna Whitney knows that the
customer always comes first. Literally. She enjoys what she
does, but lately has been looking for something more. The
first lesson of being a courtesan is to never fall for the
client. Marianna knows this rule is non-negotiable, yet she
can’t help it. Chase is everything beautiful in a man and
the fact that he is her john doesn’t mean a thing to
Marianna. She is going to take this relationship to its
limit and the results are a romantic, true love that rocks
both their worlds.
Chase and Marianna’s relationship
starts out with a bang and never lets up. Both were a bit
scared to allow the other into their lives, but the
emotional intensity and arousal was there for them and they
took full advantage of it! “The Girlfriend Experience” was
one electrifying novella!
Dominique Lawe is forty-five years old
and suddenly single. Left for a much younger woman after
supporting her husband for years, Dominique becomes a
courtesan in order to show her ex-husband just how desirable
she is. Every action, touch, and breath is done with the
intent to make him pay and it isn’t until Gabriel that
Dominique realizes that what she thought was essential no
longer is. The only important thing should be Dominique and
Gabriel – it takes her a while to realize this as well as to
trust Gabriel. The result is fabulous and fiery hot!
Dominique is like any woman scorned.
She is out for revenge and refuses to allow anything to stop
her. She doesn’t expect the feelings Gabriel invokes in her
and she really doesn’t see herself falling in love – which
she does. Only this time she has a wonderful man who loves
her unconditionally. The ending for “Payback” was great –
I almost had given up on Dominique coming around. Gabriel,
on the other hand, had my heart from the get go.
Noelle St. James has been divorced more
than once and often finds herself bored in normal
relationships. That is why being a courtesan is so easy for
her – she loves sex and she loves variety. The more the
merrier is a word in Noelle’s book, especially after she
meets her new client, Dax. Dax gets off on watching the
woman he is dating make love with other men. He likes to
watch and he likes to command the entire sexual act down to
kisses, touches, and emotions. Meeting Noelle St. Clair is
like meeting the other half of his soul because in Noelle he
has found a kindred spirit and someone who loves sex as much
as he does.
“Triple Play” was not my favorite of
the three novellas. I found the relationship between Noelle
and Dax difficult to understand – not to say that it wasn’t
realistic, because it was. I just couldn’t have done what
Noelle agreed to do and I know for sure I would have never
been able to allow my lover to give me freely to someone
else. Dax and Noelle worked perfectly together and their
ability to stay in tune with the other, even while
experiencing sexual gratification, is a sight to behold!
Yours for the Night by
Jasmine Haynes is an exceptional assemblage of three erotic
and emotional novellas. Each story, with its own hero and
heroine, was well written, intense, and smoldering hot in
its own way. That is what I liked best about this
outstanding novel – I was treated to three different but
interlocking stories that made me blush, sweat, and sigh in
delight. Jasmine Haynes is a favorite author of mine for
this very reason – she makes me feel emotions and joy with
every novel she writes.
