Reader Review: Sex with a stranger never turns out as good as one thinks it will, at least until Grace meets Sam in a bar and spends the night in multiplied bliss. This is a great story. The secondary characters can be found in Hart's story Dirty, which is amazing in itself. Sam's book is not as dramatic as Dirty, but the depth of the characters make it worth the money spent. My only problem with this book was the amount of time Grace spent with another man and how long it took for her and Sam to finally get together. Other than that it is a great read.
I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons....
But they're not the ones you'd expect.
For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the lust and urgency only live skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases up like the folds of a fan. Tight. Personal. Ready to unravel in the heat of the moment.
Unsurprisingly, my line of work brings me face-to-face with loss. So I decided long ago that paying for sex would be one of the best (and arousing) ways to save myself from the one thing that would eventually cut far too deep.
But Sam was a mistake. Literally. I signed on to "pick up" a stranger at a bar, but took Sam home instead. And now that I've felt his heat, his sweat and everything else, can I really go back to impersonal?
Let's just hope he never finds out about my other life....

The Fishtank wasn't my usual hangout, though I'd been inside it once or twice. Recently redecorated, it sought to compete with a bunch of brand-new bars and restaurants that had opened in downtown Harrisburg, but though the tropical theme and aquariums were pretty and the drinks cheap enough, the Fishtank was too far away from restaurant row to really compete. What it did have that the other, newer bars didn't, was the attached hotel. The Fishtank, "where you hook 'em," was sort of a joke with the young and single crowd of central Pennsylvania. Or at least with me, and I was young. And blessedly, purposefully, single.
Scanning the crowd, I wove my way through the closely set tables toward the bar. The Fishtank was filled, literally, with people I didn't know. One would be the perfect stranger, emphasis on perfect.
So far, I hadn't seen him, but there was still time. I took a seat at the bar. My black skirt rode up a little and my stockings, held up by a garter belt of wispy lace, slipped on the leather stool. The sensation whispered up my thighs, bare above the tops of my stockings. My panties, of even wispier lace, rubbed me as I shifted.
"Tröegs Pale Ale," I told the bartender, who passed me a bottle with a nod.
Compared to many of the women in the Fishtank, I was dressed conservatively. My black skirt was cut fashionably just above the knee, my blouse silky and formfitting, but in the sea of low-riding jeans and navel-baring T-shirts, spaghetti straps and hooker heels, I stood out. Just the way I wanted.
I sipped my beer and looked around. Who would it be? Who would take me upstairs tonight? How long would I have to wait?
Apparently, not long. The seat next to mine h...

Sex with a stranger never turns out as good as one

Shows there is no easy way to love.

Grace paying for sex from Jack makes sense in the story. I found it really sweet how her coming to care for him opened her eyes to Sam. The characters are flawed & that makes them relatable. My only gripe was it didn't seem like Sam grew at the end of the story. Jack also makes a brief appearance in Naked & if Megan Hart doesn't write his story I will be sorely disappointed b/c he deserves it. I found myself almost wishing Grace would go ahead & fall in love with Jack instead, even though I know he belongs with someone else.
