My name is Logan Steele. I’m devilishly handsome, seriously ripped, well hung, charismatic and highly sexed. Women just can’t resist me. So when I lost my job in the construction industry and was struggling for cash, I decided to put my assets to good use.

By day I’m a private personal fitness trainer. By night I’m a high class gigolo.

Tell me your fantasy, I’ll fulfil it ~ So, who do you want me to be?”

Sophisticated for the Night

It had been over nine months since I’d deflowered Summer Beresford, in her Virgin for the Night fantasy. Nine months where she’d plagued my thoughts, both in my personal and professional life. I’d resolved to never take another booking from her, I’d never gotten emotionally attached to a client before, it didn’t bode well for me. Especially not when she obviously just saw me as the guy she paid to take her virginity and nothing else. I didn’t take rejection well. When I read that her co-star Daron Beck had set his sights on her and planned to accompany her to their movie premiere next week, it made my blood boil. His reputation for sleeping with his leading ladies, was nearly as legendary as my reputation for being the best in the business. He, on the other hand, wasn’t so respectful of women. The thought of him putting his hands on her, if he hadn’t already, or treating her badly, made my mind up. I was about to do something I’d never done, take a former client out without her paying me, and I wasn’t going to take no for an answer. Next week I’d be accompanying Summer to her premiere, whether she liked it or not.

We get to see a couple of different sides to Logan in this book that we haven't seen before: nervous and anxious, at times maybe unsure. He definitely has his work cut out for him to get Summer to see him beyond his chosen path of being an escort. Summer, on the other hand, has definitely blossomed since her night with Logan, and it appears she might be the next big movie star. But she's still humble and very down-to-earth. And of course thrown off kilter when her date to the movie premiere shows up. 

Without giving away too much of this book, suffice it to say that Logan definitely has a double standard when it comes to careers, and yay for Summer for sticking to her guns. And thank heavens for James saying what needed to be said to Logan.

I will say that while I was anticipating the ending of this installment, I was sort of hoping it would end on the opposite end of the spectrum. But hey, if it ended the way I wanted it to I'd be a bit sad about it. But for now I still have three more installments to read!
