ARC Review: By the Hour by Roni Loren

I am such a huge fan of Roni Loren's that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book right after finishing Off the Clock. If you haven't read Off the Clock though, each of these is a standalone story so you can easily enjoy them without reading in order. I do recommend reading these in order if you can though as they are fantastic and you get to know some back story that I find adds to the experience.

By the Hour is Elle's story, and if I am honest I really disliked her in the first book. I knew that Roni could definitely change my mind though and that definitely happened here. Elle McCray throws herself into her work after being betrayed by her ex-husband. Now she puts everything she has into her career, choosing to shut others out and be feared rather than risk humiliation. So when former escort Lane Cannon flirts with her, she shuts him down. Lane has done everything he can to overcome his past, but he isn't about to let her get away with shutting him down. When things turn steamy one night, Lane has no intention of letting it be a one time thing. Elle proposes a business deal to keep it strictly physical, but Lane will only agree if he is the one in control. But what starts out as a business deal quickly becomes more, and soon they both realize that neither of them are able to control everything the way they thought they could.

I was a bit skeptical on Elle, but I was so glad that I gave her a chance! So much was brought to light here, explaining why Elle was the way she was. I felt like I really got to understand her here and it made me not only understand her but really come to like her. I felt for her and I was really hoping that she would get her HEA and everything that she deserved. I loved Lane too. He had a past that he had worked hard to overcome, and I loved that he did it on his terms. He saw beneath Elle's tough exterior and made her a better person. These two were super hot together, and their chemistry was off the charts. I loved seeing them get to know one another and explore all that was between them.

Overall, another fantastic story from Roni Loren that I can't recommend enough! I have loved everything I have read from her, and this was no exception. The Pleasure Principle series is one that has become a favorite, though honestly you cannot go wrong with anything from Roni Loren. She knows how to write a super sexy erotic romance that has plenty of story to go along with the heat. By the Hour is definitely one of my favorites I have read from Roni Loren, and I highly recommend this one and Off the Clock if you haven't read them yet. If you are looking for something sexy with a great story, this is a must read.
