“I loved being swept away by all the many characters that Max portrays in his role as Mr. Romance.”
~ Under the Covers
MISTER ROMANCE was surprisingly sweet. For a book that features a male escort, this was done in a very classy way. The trope of a journalist wanting to do a piece on an escort is not new, but I liked how Ms. Rayven made Mr. Romance all about the fantasy and… well… the romance. He doesn’t have sex with his clients but just fulfills that need and desire to feel special. There was something really sweet about what he does that somehow made me look past his choice of careers.
In terms of the characters, I liked them ok. Although neither Max nor Eden are stand out characters for me, I thought they were still enjoyable to read about. Eden is quite cynical and I liked that about her character. I don’t think I bought the fast fall into love that we see here after just a few dates with Mr. Romance. I was expecting her to be a tougher one to crack considering her previous choices in that department.
Of course we have a twist in the end as to why Max ends up in the situation he is now and why he does what he does. I had a tougher time buying into the whole story .
Overall, I loved being swept away by all the many characters that Max portrays in his role as Mr. Romance. There was something magical about that even when you knew where the gimmick was. It was a fun read and I’ll be on the lookout for the next.
