He is everything I’ve ever wanted in a man. And I will do anything to get him. Even if I have to lie to him — Ethan
He is a sinful temptation. A guy who loves pushing all my buttons. But I can’t touch him. And I most definitely cannot have him — Joe
Ethan Skye has had only one goal in mind since the first night he walked into Saron, the most exclusive gay club in Tokyo: to win the heart of Joe Cavendish, its brooding owner and the man he’d fallen in love with at first sight. When Ethan takes a job as a bartender at Saron to get closer to Joe, little does he know that his actions will set him in the sights of an obsessive admirer.
Jaded by his troubled past and with his heart very much guarded, Joe Cavendish has one strict rule in life: never mix business with pleasure. Unfortunately for Joe, one cocky, sexy bartender seems intent on testing that resolve to its very limits, and Joe finds his patience and his libido increasingly challenged as he fights his growing attraction for his new employee. But after Joe discovers the danger Ethan is in, his possessive instincts compel him to take on the role of Ethan’s personal bodyguard and pretend lover.
Can Joe protect Ethan from his increasingly violent stalker and maintain his own sanity while he gets up close and personal to the alluring young man storming his way inside his numb heart? Will Ethan overcome Joe’s stubbornness and convince the club owner to take a chance on love? Or will the secrets they’ve been keeping from each other threaten their fragile, burgeoning relationship?
Discover Ethan and Joe’s story in this second novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger.
This is a MM romance with a HEA.

5 Stars!!!

We met Ethan and Joe in One Night, book 1 in this series, but The Escort can be read as a standalone, although tbh, One Night was hot, hot, HOT, you don't want to miss it!

Ethan has been in love with Joe since before he started working for him at Saron, Joe's bar, however, much to his chagrin, Joe refuses to mix pleasure with business. When a man starts stalking Ethan and getting increasingly close to the bartender, Joe's protective instincts urge him to help Ethan out by pretending to be his lover. Will this be the push Joe needs to realize he and Ethan belong together or will he keep pushing Ethan away?

Ethan was adorable and just perfect for Joe, and he turned out to be a whole lot more than a bartender, which was a nice surprise. Joe was protective and stubborn and I wanted to punch him a couple of times that he wouldn't just give in to the obvious attraction between him and Ethan and just talk with the man about his misgivings. *sighs* The chemistry between Ethan and Joe was out of this world and it's undeniable that Ms. Salinger knows how to write sex scenes that are sizzling hot. *fans self*

I loved seeing Cam and Gabe and can't wait to read more about them in book 3, and I really liked Eveline, she's such a fun character!

Overall, much as I enjoyed One Night, I think The Escort is my favorite in the series so far. Perhaps because it was more than just sex, it also had suspense and a bit of romance. Highly recommendable!
