Amy's Review:

This was a super easy, good read. I read this book in less than an hour and it brought a big smile to my face!
Ivy is a VIP Companion. She is fiery red hair and a striking beauty. Her job is to accompany clients anywhere they need a beautiful woman on their arm. Gala events, fundraiser dinners, charity projects, etc. When she meets her newest client, it is no other than Jax Sterling, and old childhood friend. (face palm) Jax is just as handsome as he was as a teen.
Unfortunately for Jax, Ivy has her guard up. Past set aside, Ivy is scared of her feelings and what the future could hold for the two of them. There is sexual tension to the tenth power in this little jewel.
The writing of this story was fabulous. As a debut novel, I truly enjoyed this piece of work and hope I get the honor to read something else by this author. At 36 pages long, I simply wanted more. I wanted more back story and more details and a lot more of their back ground together. Because of these points, I had to give this story 3.5 stars.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a short story to brighten their afternoon :)
