Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.
As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough. Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.
Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.
Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.
Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story.

Holy mother of all things AMAZING!! Leisa Rayven KNOCKED my socks off with Mister Romance. I couldn't devour the words fast enough!! This story is so unique, so damn brilliant, and so damn GOOD!! My heart is full to bursting with the amount of love I have for Mister Romance.
How do I even begin to describe how much I adored this book? I was enthralled from the beginning and while I couldn't wait to finish reading, I also didn't want it to end! Max and Eden are characters that will stick with me for a long time. Especially Max. His character was so intense, and I was so enamored with him. Eden didn't stand a chance!
The storyline is so unlike anything I've ever read before. It went straight to my favorites for 2017 and my all time favorite reads!! I'll be squealing from the rooftops for EVERYONE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!
Eden is an investigative journalist who's talents have been wasted at a dead end job. She wants to use her talents to get ahead, so she decides to go after a story about an elusive man known as Mister Romance. MR is an escort who makes a ton of money taking women on dates. No sex, just dates. The dates make them feel romance, make them feel worthy, and he’ll do whatever scenario/character they need to make that happen. Mister Romance’s hidden identity is important to him. It’s completely conducive to his business that he stays anonymous. When Eden finally finds out who he is, she’s given a choice. He’ll give her an exclusive interview IF and only if she doesn’t fall in love with him after he takes her on three dates.
“We’ve all been hurt. We’re all broken in places. But romance gives us a way to forget about that for a while and believe that fairytales can come true.”
Eden thinks she has it made in the shade. I mean, this girl does NOT fall in love, so not falling for MR should be no problem at all, right? But even she cannot resist his charms at times. As you could see them both falling for one another you had to wonder… is it real on MR’s end? Is Eden going to make her feelings known or keep them hidden? How is this going to end well?
“Everything is ordinary until someone loves it, then it transforms. Suddenly it’s beautiful. Incredible. Priceless. Everyone deserves to feel priceless at least once in their lives.”
Mister Romance is an interesting and captivating spin on the normal escort tale. I loved it’s originality. It wasn’t high angst in my opinion, but it had just enough to keep you intrigued. Though there was something towards the end that bothered me a bit personally, I think most people won’t be effected by it. I love Leisa Rayven’s writing and highly recommend this one if you’re looking for a sexy and fun read!
