I can't believe that this is my first book by Sybil Bartel! Rough was so good and I couldn't put it down! When I read the blurb I knew I had to take a chance on this new to me author and I was hoping for the best. This one was such a nice surprise because it was everything I had hoped for and more. I am definitely going to have to check out Sybil's other books and I cannot wait to read more from her!
Jared a former Marine has spent the last three years working as a male escort. He doesn't do shy or sweet clients, preferring to keep his control and often times being on the rough side. But when his friend and fellow escort asks him to take a few clients for a night, he ends up meeting Sienna. Sienna having been hurt isn't looking for anything serious, which is why she hired an escort. But Jared is unlike Alex who she thought she was getting. Jared and Sienna can't deny the attraction between them though and things quickly become more complicated than escort and client.
I really liked these two together. They were so different and that was exactly why they worked so well with one another. The chemistry and attraction was there right from the start and these two were beyond hot! This was one seriously steamy story, and I couldn't get enough of Jared and Sienna. I did like that there was more to them though, and I felt their connection grew in a really genuine way here.
I will admit that there was a bit of drama that was at times on the unbelievable side, and the ending for me was pretty abrupt. Otherwise though, I really enjoyed this story and I am already looking forward to reading more from Sybil Bartel. This is the second book in her Thrust series and each book is a standalone. I can't wait to go back and read the first in the series and this is definitely one I would recommend if you are looking for a sexy alpha.
