Touch of Heat by J.D. Foxx

This is the first book in a three-part series.

Used to things going terribly wrong in his life, Gage has a renewed sense of hope when he lands a job that brings in a lot of money.

He sells his body as a high-class escort in Los Angeles.

His clients are wealthy women looking to escape their lives for a few hours, and it pays very well.

Isabella is an investigative reporter. She tracks criminals and works with local police to get her stories.
When her sister goes missing, and the only clue is a business card is for the escort service, she decides to go undercover and join in as an escort. She believes she may be able to find some leads through working for the same place as her sister did before she disappeared.

Gage and Isabella are hired to go on an assignment together to entertain a very wealthy couple.
Upon arrival, Isabella has a sneaking suspicion that this may be where her sister has been taken and that she is being held hostage.
In an attempt to find her, she stumbles upon a scene that she should not be witnessing and she gets caught!

The book ends here. It does not explain who has found her, and it hints at what she saw.
For a book that is mainly dominated by Gage’s sexual encounters, the plot itself was really interesting and suspenseful. I want to know what happened next and if Isabella is able to find her sister.

The book is already short, but the writing flows so well that it seems like a quick and easy read.

The chemistry between Gage and Isabella is instant and it makes for some humorous dialogue along the way.

It would be good to read if you have an afternoon off.

4/5 stars
