We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

After finding out that everyone and their Mama has read “Black Swan Affair”, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read this book because let’s be real: an escort that has secrets of her own that’s being offered a quarter of a million dollars to be a fake girlfriend to one of the hottest bachelor’s? I practically needed a baby bib with the amount of drool I was sporting but after reading this, I was left feeling unsatisfied with a huge case of it’s not you, it’s me. 

“We look pretty, we adorn our clients, we dote, we mingle, we act the part we’re given, and we go home at the end of the ‘date’ a few hundred dollars richer, with our legs and pride intact. 

Willow Blackwell is has a lot of responsibilities for a twenty-six year old and the financial burden is starting to rear it’s ugly head. Having a day job as an audio book narrator, she knows that’s not going to help her so much with all of the bills she has racking up. Her night job as an escort however, helps make her dire situation just a little bit more bearable. But make no mistake, she doesn’t want or need anyone’s pity, and while she doesn’t sleep with her clients, it is still a hard thing for to do. But little does Willow knows is that one offer is about to change the course of her life. 

“When was the last time you were good and kissed? Painstakingly completed branded by a man so thoroughly you could still feel the press of his lips and the coiling of his tongue with yours when you went to bed at night?

Shaw Mercer is a certified playboy that has no plans on ever settling down. Being co-owner of a very successful company and the son of the Mayor, all he has to do is smile and women will drop to their knees. Told to find something more serious and settle down for a while, Shawn decides to seek out the woman who’s been the star of his illicit fantasies and who also rear ended his car. The funny thing about fate is that you have no control over it and once it’s on the designated path, there’s no stopping it. 

How far will these two go to make a fake relationship seem believable? 

I really liked the fact that Willow was her own person in the beginning of the story. Her life was not easy but she handled it with such certainty and grace, that I had to applaud her for it. But….. I had some major issues with certain people and that made it very difficult to connect with them. In the beginning I really loved Shaw and I thought to myself, this guy is going to ruin me and will go down as one of my favorites hero of all time. But one minute he’s dominant and is exuding his alpha tendencies, and next he’s all hearts and flowers mushy type. I got serious whiplash to the point I had to double check to make sure I was reading is POV and not Willow’s. 

I also felt like there was something missing. I don’t know if it’s because this is only part one or it was just me, but I feel like I’m missing that connection between the characters that would make me want to hang on to their every word. Now as for the ending, I knew something was going to happen but I wasn’t expecting something like that and for that alone, I loved I was given the element of surprise. If you’re a fan of this author’s work, then you should give this one try.

Author Bio

As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
