New Release + Review: LaClaire Touch by Dori Lavelle

Title: LaClaire Touch
An After Hours Series Novel
Author: Dori Lavelle
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 31, 2017
When a man pays for my body, I shut off my emotions, close my eyes, and force myself to push through. No thinking. No feeling. No breaking apart.

Soon the debts will be paid. Soon I'll scrub their cologne and sweat from my skin and walk away from this business for good, pretending it never happened.

For now, my body is not my own. For now, I belong to any man who can afford me.

But when Derrick LaClaire asks for a night with me, I turn him away, even when he offers to pay triple what I earn per hour. I need his cash, but if I let him touch me, I know I'll break every single one of my rules. And he'll discover who I really am.

LaClaire Touch is a steamy full-length, standalone novel with a happy ending.

**WARNING: Due to sexual situations and adult content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. **

Brooke Rayner is a survivor.  That’s what she does after she was kicked out from her home and had to drop out of school at 16.  Nowadays, she is Ruby at The Mirage, the place where both clients and prostitutes can conceal their identities while interacting.  It pays her bills, keeps her anonymity and she’ll be doing it until she can get out of debt and has enough money to start college.

Derrick LaClaire is an adrenaline junkie.  The youngest LaClaire brother will do anything and travel anywhere for that high, the one that helps him forget the nightmares of his life.  When he meets Ruby, he becomes obsessed with having the girl who ran away in the night and comes back to get his fill, but things will take and unexpected turn when she calls out his name…
When their worlds collide and Derrick desperately wants to know why she disappeared and took that path, Brooke will have to confront the demons from her past and unearth secrets she’d rather keep hidden.
This is a story about a second chance with a big twist.  Short and fast paced, but a little over the top for my taste.  I totally understood Brooke’s character and her backstory, but can’t say the same for Derrick and his attitude about life and the consequences of your actions.
IMO, the book was okay and easy to read, just not my style plot wise.
