Blog Tour Stop: Under Contract by Jacquelyn Ayres

Book: Under Contract
Author: Jacquelyn Ayres
Genre: Erotic Romance/Erotic Humor

Charlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream. Er . . . let’s try this again. Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago. Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . . Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.

When I first started this book I wasn't sure what to expect, but what a love story this turned out to be.  I could not put it down until I was to the end, which meant a late night, but well worth it.  Mitch and Charlotte meet in a not normal circumstance when he pays her quite a bit of money to be his on call girlfriend.  He is a hot guy with tons of money and I questioned why on earth he did this, but was answered later in the book.
Charlotte has been down on her luck when her husband decides he no longer wishes to be married, but she still has bills to pay and kids to raise.  She overhears a conversation about becoming a call girl and decides to give it a shot and lucky for her she meets Mitch. 
The first night they are together he gives her the contract to sign and then they get down to business and she gets her first "O" with someone else involved.  Seems like a win/win to me.  But Mitch sees that there is more to her and decides to give her a lot more than what is in the contract and finds himself postponing his trip and developing feelings for her. 
While gone on his 3 month trip he finds himself missing her but he breaks it off with her.  His Gram's wants no part of that so she makes it to where when they Skype on night Charlotte is there and he gets a glimpse of her and he cannot get her out of his head and comes home to make things right with her, and he does in a big way. 
I won't give away too much more of this book but as you can tell it is a 5 star read for me.  Pick this book up you will not be disappointed you did.

I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures. 
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.
