Intensity Blog Tour (Review+Excerpt+Giveaway)


 REVIEW
I was really excited about reading this book because I secretly love books about girls that go into the escort world and meet their perfect match. It's one of my many guilty pleasures! Anyways, I really enjoyed this book. It was not what I was expecting, but that made me like it even more! 

Serena has recently lost everything and she's in a very vulnerable state, going into the escort business looks like the only choice at that point. Serena is a "good" girl. She's sweet, innocent, and cute. However, she has moments where she brought her inner bad girl because she needed to.  

Linc was an interesting character. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Linc. It just took me a while to trust him. He's an expert on sending mix signals and that was a bit annoying at times. However, he redeems himself at the end, which made up for all of the times that he annoyed me. 

Linc treats her differently than the other girls at the escort business, which created enjoyable drama. He's a sweet man! 

Overall, this novel was actually a quick read for me. It really had no boring parts, which made it easy for me to breeze through it. The ending was unsatisfying BUT I know that Linc and Serena's story continues! 

EXCERPT 
I turned toward the frameless picture windows lining the entire exterior wall and was presented with a breathtaking, unobstructed view of the harbor. Smack dab in the middle, behind an antique mahogany desk, stood the tallest, most impressive man I’d ever seen. The black suit he wore matched the surroundings, professional and sleek. The top three buttons on his white shirt undone, dark sprigs of hair peeked through and begged for my attention.

As I got closer, his eyes scanned me from head, to chest, to hips and up and down my long legs at least three times, resting on my ruby-red tiptoes.

Ha! Two could play at that game. Using the exact pace he did, I snapped mental pictures of every God given, Mr. Universe muscle. A wavy black ponytail, pulled tight at the nape, crested his wide shoulders and dipped to mid-chest, bringing my journey to a momentary pause. A taut dress shirt molded to his pecs became an instant favorite and preference I didn’t know I had. As I gravitated lower, the desk impeded my view, coming to rest at his waist and a nondescript silver belt buckle. My eyes drifted back up, wishing I could see more, but his tailored jacket without a hint of lint on it kept him hidden. Still, from what I could take in, the man had sin engraved all over him.

I stopped in front of his desk and realized my earlier assessment of him had been right. My six five in heels, shrunk to five feet the way he towered over me by several inches. “Linc?” The wispiness of my voice made me cringe. Way to go, Serena.

His answer, one sharp nod. In the corners around each eye, little wrinkles appeared as he took another long journey over my body. Knees locked together, I tried hard not to fidget. 
“I’m Serena. Mylaynee said my interview was at twelve thirty. I’m a little early. I didn’t mean to interrupt if you were in the middle of something.” Damn, there I went, rambling. Yeah, that would have him eating out of my hands.

Linc rounded the desk, coming toe to toe.

“You’re a virgin.”
