SERIES #REVIEW: The Desert Pleasures Series by Zoe Blackwood

THE DESERT PLEASURES SERIES by Zoe Blackwood
Genre: EROTIC ROMANCE
-  BOOKS 
(All standalone novels)
HOLLYWOOD GIANT 
LOSING GRIP
LOSING HER
BROKEN MOON 

- SERIES BLURB -
Alicia Porter owns an exclusive and discreet male escort service for women called, Desert Pleasures. 

The clientele is unique, hand selected by Alicia herself, so her escorts are also not the standard for the industry, but rather something deliciously sinful.

The first four books in the series are introductions to the escorts, as well as the clientele (Losing Grip). Since these books feature different characters, they can be read in any order. Several books have character crossovers. 

**They can be enjoyed in any order and are intended for a mature audience.**

— Guest Review by C. — 
Have you ever read a series where each book got better and BETTER? A series where you fell in love with the characters even more with each installment? Yes? Well, that was my experience while reading The Desert Pleasures by Zoe Blackwood. While each book can technically be read as a standalone, I would recommend you read them all because you will connect with the characters even more.

Let me say that Alicia owns one heck of an escort company. Her, uh, escorts are not only incredibly hot and sexy, but incredible intriguing too! I loved reading all their stories — and they where quite the stories! Oh, my! Hot scenes and great plot lines made each book a must read for me! 

Zoe Blackwood's writing was appealing and easy to connect with! She certainly brought her characters to life and I had no problem envisioning the scenes and everything unfolded. I will certainly be checking out Zoe's future books as I truly enjoyed (A LOT!) reading this series!

A meeting with the owner of a discreet male escort service leads to a rather unusual relationship with male escort Nic Adair. The simplicity of their relationship appeals to her fear of intimacy.

Learning to love and trust again may be too big a risk for Kristine. When a strange pattern of anonymous threats against her emerge, she will have to learn to trust the people in her life.
