Filled with intrigue, lies, secrets and enough sweaty sex that I felt like I needed a cold shower when I was done, The Masseuse was a smart and fantastic surprise. ~ Leigh, Guilty Pleasures
Anna Rossi lives by one simple rule: don’t get attached, don’t get hurt. But Alec Flynn doesn’t play by the rules…
Anna never takes on a massage client without screening him first, but the paycheck offered by billionaire Maxim Stein is too good to turn down. Stein is the richest man she’s ever laid her hands on, and despite the risks, she trusts that she can take care of herself. After all, she’s handled difficult clients in the past. What she isn’t prepared for is getting caught in a compromising situation by Maxim’s tall, dark, and gorgeous bodyguard—or the desperate desires he awakens in her…
Alec is dangerous. The mysterious, hard-bodied man is completely irresistible and won’t be refused, no matter what walls Anna puts up to protect herself. But as Anna falls fast for his careful ministrations and mind-blowing skills, she begins to realize that giving herself over to a man with so many secrets isn’t just putting her heart at risk—it’s endangering her life…
Review copy provided for an honest review
It took a little while for me to get in to this book, but once I did, I could not put it down! It was erotic, emotional and had more substance than I originally assumed it would.
Anna Rossi is the title character, a masseuse with a past she can’t seem to put behind her. She refuses to let anyone get close to her and leaves when she thinks she is in danger of getting hurt. Alec Flynn is the right hand to a wealthy man. When Anna and Alec meet, they rush headlong into whatever it is they feel growing between them. But Anna’s history and Alec’s lies threaten to tear these two people apart.
When I first began this book, I have to admit it…I didn’t have high expectations. Anna and Alec were so attracted to one another with just a simple glance, and seemed to be falling head over heels with one another when they didn’t know the first thing about the other person. Alec was standoffish and beyond the physical, I couldn’t see what the attraction was for either one. But as I read further and further into the book, I felt myself get dragged down into the sultry air of Florida and the emotions that flared between these two. Despite the secrets both were keeping, their connection was deep and heartfelt, and I found myself falling in love with this couple. Especially Alec.
The perfect example of not judging a book by it’s lick-able cover, Alec was more than just a handsome face and gorgeous body. The man beneath proved to be complex and surprising, very much like the story itself. Filled with intrigue, lies, secrets and enough sweaty sex that I felt like I needed a cold shower when I was done, The Masseuse was a smart and fantastic surprise.
My only dislike in the entire story was the end. No spoilers here, but I just was not satisfied, until I found that this was only the first book in a trilogy. So, I can forgive Ms. Kincaid for the ending, knowing that in a way it is only a beginning and I get to share my time with Alec and Anna again.
Don’t read this book at church. Alex and Anna know how to bring the heat! ~ Paige Turner, Guilty Pleasures
Based on what I read in the beginning of the book, I thought it was going to be a book about Alex and Anna’s sex life but was blown away by the twists and turns of the book. Their teasing and sexual tension was palpable. While I’m no prude and love reading sexy tales, I didn’t think some were un-necessary.
Both Alec and Anna had difficulty pasts. Despite both tragic pasts they had someone in their corner to help in the tough times. I was definitely anxious to see what skeletons they were hiding. What kept them from fully trusting each other.
I thought the author did a great job keeping the reader interested in the book. The suspense and drama was perfect throughout the book. It was definitely a page turner. I had to stay up past my bedtime to finish the book.
Looking forward to book 2.
