Blog Tour and Giveaway for "Living in Sin" by Isabel Lucero *Exclusive character interview*

Title: Living in Sin
Author: Isabel Lucero
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publication Date: January 1, 2014

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*
*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

Living in Sin starts with a bang, literally. I have never read a book before that goes straight to the sex, not even straight up erotica that barely bothers with a story line, so this was quite different for me, and I loved it. It is clear from the beginning that Jace is a man that really knows his way around a woman's body, but you wouldn't expect any less from a successful male escort in Sin City now would you? What isn't clear is if he knows his way to a woman's heart.

Adrienne is a successful event planner, and she's seen Jace at a few of her events, always with a different woman. Naturally she finds him attractive, because who wouldn't, but she doesn't want to get involved with a man that is obviously just a player. That is until her friend Emilie convinces her that she deserves to have a little no-strings attached fun with the God-like creature.

This book had me hooked from the word go (what can I say, I like me some hot sex). My initial impression of Jace was not favorable, but I generally pay little to no attention to the synopsis of books before I read them, and I didn't really think about the title either, so I didn't realize that he was a male escort. I thought he was just a cocky bastard. I quickly grew to love him when I saw the error of my ways though. There are so many layers to his character that blend together to make him pretty much the perfect male specimen. We should just clone Jace Jamison and get rid of all the other men (don't tell my husband I said that.)

"Living in Sin" was very well written, in my opinion. It has drama and suspense, that while they don't happen in most people's lives (because most people aren't male escorts), are actually very believable and even relateable. Did I yell at Jace for being an idiot and not being up front with Adrienne sooner? Of course I did, out loud (it startled my children, and then I was reprimanded by my four year old because I should not say that word), but real people do that, and the story would have been a lot more boring. I honestly can't think of a single book where the characters don't keep secrets from one another because no one really wants to read about people being up front and honest all the time. Sure we want it in real life, but it's just not that interesting. Then there were the glorious sex scenes. Ms. Lucero did not skimp on any of the delicious dirty details.

Overall I give this book 5 out of 5 stars (because the other girls say I'm not allowed to give it any more stars than that), because I was hooked from the beginning and captivated through the end. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the Escort series. Keep reading for my exclusive interview with the guys from the Agency. - Katie

Character Interview

Why did you become an escort? Are you really just in it for the sex? 
Nico: *Yells* We're all in it for the sex! 
Troy: The money isn't bad either. *laughs* 
Jace: Well, I wanted to get away from NY and not have to worry about money. I came across information about escorts, and as soon as I was legal, I moved here, and well, now I don't struggle. *smirks* 

What's the most you've ever charged a client? 
Marc: It all depends on what the client wants. We can get booked for weekend trips, or even longer than that. For a weekend trip, you're looking at anywhere between six to eight thousand dollars. We get 80% of our hourly/weekly rates. 

Do you get physical with all of your clients? 
*In unison* No. 
Troy: *laughs* Not all women want sex, they just want company or to have a date to a work party. 

How do you feel emotionally when the clients expect you to be more physical? 
Troy: If a client wants to be physical, we know, and we're okay with that. We don't let our emotions get involved with any clients. You just can't. 

Have you ever fallen in love with a client? 
*laughs* No. 
Jace: Like Troy said, we can't let our emotions become a problem. 
Marc: Plus, it's rare that you have a client you'd actually be attracted to or interested in in your personal life. Sometimes our personalities don't match, but you have to do your job. 

What is the strangest activity a client has requested? 
Nico: *laughs and slaps Marc's shoulder* I think Marc wins this, at least recently. He had a woman have a sploshing fetish. Look it up. 
Marc: Shut up, Nico. Don't remind me. *everybody laughs* 

How do you make sure the woman is satisfied before you finish? I'm sure some of our readers have boyfriends or husbands that could use some tips. 
Troy: Look, if a man can't satisfy a woman before he comes, then he's a terrible man. *everybody laughs* I'm just sayin', it's easy. You have to learn what a woman likes and what she doesn't. Do everything she loves, and control yourself. It's not that hard. 

How do you get through an evening if your client is really ugly? 
Nico: Think about the money. *Marc smacks him in the head.* 
Marc: More often than not, you'll be with someone you aren't attracted to, but our job is to act like we are, make them believe we want them and only them. It's an acting gig, really. 

What do you do if you run into a client outside of work? 
Kade: It doesn't happen a whole lot. Some people just come in from out of town. Plus, it's a big city and it's rare to see a lot of the same people, but it does happen. I recently ran into somebody I had been with, at a restaurant. She blushed and gave me a nervous wave, but she was with somebody, so we didn't talk or anything. 
Jace: Some of these clients are regulars, so it's not too weird to see them more than once anyway. 

Do you have limits on what you will do with clients? If so could we get some examples? 
Nico: We'll do almost anything. Whatever the client wants. Almost anything.

Have you ever had someone underage try to purchase your services? 
Jace: No, they have to go through the agency, and they're sure to get all the information they need. 

Are you doing anything later? I mean I'm in town for a couple more days and... 
*laughs* *Nico and Kade simultaneously* I'm free! 

I just couldn't resist. You know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
