Dave and Lida, 1

Lida Lawrence is left broke and desperate after her ex walks out on her. She needs $1,500 fast or she’ll be evicted. There is only one thing she can think of doing that will get her enough money in time, so she heads out to the Hotel Carrington looking for a businessman willing to pay for some companionship.

Dave McKenna is a salesman from out of town. He is lonely and bored. Lida picks him because he seems like a nice guy, but once she gets up to his room she finds out that Dave isn’t quite as vanilla as she thought. He offers her the whole $1,500 for a single night of pleasure and pain, but can Lida give him what he desires?

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys



She hesitated.  Beer was probably the cheapest thing on the menu, but it didn’t go with the aura she was trying to project. 

“A glass of house white and one of water, please.”

Just then a group of four came up to the bar, two couples.  There were three seats together and the single between her and her sandy-haired target.  Sliding off her stool, she moved to take the free one beside her mark, smiling apologetically as the bartender placed both glasses in front of her.

He smiled back and said, “Do you come here often?”  Then he flushed bright red.  “I’m sorry.  That was a really corny line.  I’ve wanted to say something since I saw you come in, but you were over there and I was over here. Now you are over here too, and I’ll shut up now!”

He took a quick sip of beer, choked slightly, coughed, and took a deep breath.  Then he took another sip before sitting back and looking at her with a wry grin.  “Yup, that’s me.  Mr. Smooth.  I’ll leave now before I trip and fall on my face or spill my drink on you or something even more embarrassing.”

“Please don’t leave.  I hate to drink alone.”

He paused and looked at her, hesitating. 

“I mean, I’d love some company.  And no, I don’t come here often.  I’m Lida.”  Damn.  She meant to use a false name.  She really sucked at this.  How was she going to make fifteen hundred bucks if she couldn’t even get past the introductions?

“I’m…Dave!”  He reached toward her, and they shook hands solemnly.  “Dave McKenna.”

“And what are you doing here in Chicago, Dave McKenna?”

“I’m a sales rep making my regular monthly visit to the Windy City.”

“Staying over the weekend?”

“A salesman’s work is never done.  I’ve got a big meeting on Monday. I thought it would be better to stay here and spend the weekend preparing.  If I go home…well, there would be distractions.  What about you Lida?  What are you doing in the Carrington?  Business?  Pleasure?”

“Oh, I’m not staying here.  I live here in Chicago.  I just didn’t feel like going home to my empty apartment just yet.  Where’s home for you, Dave?”

“A small town outside of Duluth.  You won’t have heard of it.”

“Must be lonely travelling, being away from your family.”

“You get used to it.  So do they, I guess.  My wife got so used to me being away that she decided she’d be better off without me permanently.  No kids, luckily.  You?”

“I’m sorry, Dave.  I wasn’t married, but I was in a long term relationship that ended recently and badly.”  She sighed. “Would you like some company, Dave?”

Turning in the stool slightly, Lida deliberate bumped her knee against his thigh.  He didn’t move away.  She took that as a good sign.  “And by company, I mean…”

She couldn’t do it.  She couldn’t say it.  She paused, preparing to leave, but then she felt a warm hand on her knee. 

“How much?”

The Romance Review
Written by Book Addict on 1st Dec 2014

A woman down on her luck needs to do what it takes to make rent. Lida Lawrence is looking for any man willing to pay for one night of sexy time. It's rumoured escorts could make several hundred dollars in a night. She may even be able to make her goal of $1,500. Now to find a business man willing to plow her. Dave McKenna is the man Lida picks up at a bar in a hotel frequented by lonely businessmen. Perhaps Lida will end up being alright after all. All she needs to do is lay back and let him ride her. Ms. Philips is providing a fresh and great way to write kinky couple stories. After reading her third book in the series, I had to pick up the first two and read them. They are truly fun to whip through. These smexy books are great for couples to read and ignite their own roleplaying scenes. The way the twist in this story is written is amusing and almost reminiscent of couples videos from early 1990s on how to spice up sex. This story is recommended to kinky readers who want to know how being an escort can be fun and financially fruitful.

A shocking story!

I had to check this one out. How could you not with that cover? There's a delicious twist, which I did not see coming at all, and it made the story for me. Such a fun idea for a series! Really looking forward to the next one :-)
