Room Service delivers anything you want…no limits.

When Samantha Ingalls checks into the Fantasy Suite at the exclusive Fini Luxury Resort & Spa near Aspen, Colorado, she is struggling to get over a painful divorce. All she wants is to hide away and be pampered at the five-star hotel. What she doesn’t expect is a gorgeous, charming gigolo who knows exactly how to make her wildest fantasies come true.

Frisco Thorne has spent the last few years focused on work. After another failed relationship, he decides to make a dramatic lifestyle change. Being a gigolo is every man’s secret fantasy…lots of sex and no responsibilities.

Samantha and Frisco don’t fight the strong attraction that starts in the elevator and barely makes it to the bedroom. For the rest of the weekend, they explore every inch of each other’s bodies and delight in discovering new ways to create sexual pleasure. They make sure they make enough memories to last a lifetime, since there’s no future for them outside the Fantasy Suite…or is there?

A whirlwind marriage ends in a whirlwind divorce, so Samantha heads to the hills of Colorado to find some peace and make a plan for life after a loveless marriage. A few nights in the Fantasy Suite of an exclusive hideaway with a man who more than knows his way around a woman’s body is just what the doctor ordered.

And apparently the doctor ordered lots of sex. When Samantha decides to give into Frisco’s charm, it’s no holds barred. She needs the boost to her self esteem and Frisco is just the gigolo to give her enough boosts to last a good long time.

I was curious, though, the way he spoke to her and the time he spent with her, it didn’t seem like just a paid companion kind of weekend. He’s very personal and I could feel a bond forming between them so all the sex didn’t just feel like sex, it felt like a beginning. But…he’s a gigolo, he professionally dates lots of women.

I couldn’t wait to see how the author worked it out. Talk about your slick twist endings, this one was good! Very satisfying and seriously made me want to re-read the whole story to catch the subtle clues. Since the story is told in first person from Samantha’s POV, the unexpected ending made more sense. The surprise wouldn’t have been there if I had known Frisco’s thoughts and motivations.

The resort Samantha goes to is really fascinating as well. I hope Ms. Clark writes additional stories set around the amazing and super hospitable Fini. Between the super sexy owner, Blake, the clever Aussie masseuse, Erika, Joshua the bartender, and the rest of the staff, plus all the visitors, there’s plenty of new stories still to be told.

Fini may be where people go when their loves lives end in heartbreak but it’s also the place for new beginnings and this is one reader who hopes that this is the beginning of a new and exciting new series. An easy recommend.
