#Review #ByTheHour by @RoniLoren @AuthorsPal #AmReading

I love Roni Loren’s books and this one was no exception. Come meet Lane and Elle and read their story. It’s a wild one!

About the Book:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Clock comes a story of love, hate, and the fire that ignites when the two collide…

Dr. Elle McCray has a plan. Work hard. Be the best. And do it alone. After her ex-husband’s betrayal, she’s learned being feared is a hell of a lot easier than being humiliated. So when trouble personified, Lane Cannon, dares to flirt with her, she shuts him down cold. Too gorgeous. Too cocky. And his job as The Grove’s sexual surrogate is to sleep with patients. No, thank you.

Former escort Lane Cannon has spent enough years with people looking down on him. Stupid. Trailer trash. Rent boy. He’s heard it all. He’s worked too hard to shed his past to let some haughty doctor cut him down. But something about Elle’s ice queen act has his dominant instincts perking up and his body taking notice. He can’t walk away.

After an evening of verbal sparring turns into a night of steamy hate sex, Lane’s ready for round two. But Elle proposes a business deal. How better to keep things strictly physical than to pay him for his services?

Lane wants her, not her money. But he’ll play along in exchange for one thing—all the control. It’s only supposed to be a dirty little fling between colleagues, but these two are about to learn a lesson in love…by the hour.

My Review:

Wow! Lane is a man of mystery. So much to learn about him in this book. And Elle, hmm, what an interesting pairing. Almost like an Oreo cookie, one’s hard on the outside and one’s soft and squishy on the inside.

I never imagined the story behind the story for either character. So interesting and real. Reading about their past or struggles made them more like-able and more personable for me. It cracked the hard outer shell a little. I love how everything was wrapped up though, all the struggles and hardships. That was done very nicely.

Lane and Elle are two opposites who have so much in common. I know that doesn’t make sense but after you read this it will. Their characters really work together. Elle is real in her fears and concerns. I almost cried at the parking lot scene. So believable. This story drew emotions in me for both characters. I was rooting for them both, no bad guys here. Just demons and history.

I especially loved the ending! That was awesome! Loved how it ended where it started.

Roni has a way of making you connect to the characters through her writing. Her words are more than letters on a page or a screen. They tell a brilliant story that draws you into the plot and you feel like you are a part of the story while you are reading it. You can visualize the scene as if you are there. I love Roni’s writings and she just gets better book after book.

Meet the Author:

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her cooking, watching reality television, or picking up another hobby she doesn’t need–in other words, procrastinating like a boss. She is a RITA Award winner and a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.
