".. I want to believe we're in this because of who we are. Not just because we don't see each other as damaged goods." Gosh. This book is amazing. I totally get it if there are some people who did not like the idea of this. But for someone married, single and/or have kids and no time for dating, one can relate. And I love how REAL it is and how it can happen to anybody no matter how complicated it is.[b:Damaged Goods|11520968|Damaged Goods|Lauren Gallagher|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1307408122s/11520968.jpg|16457981] is not just your typical dose of hardcore loving and sexy men.I personally think that it is waaay more than that. The characters felt so real and the situation is headache-inducing. I don't know if I can take it if I ever put myself in the characters' shoes. "Yeah, I had everything. Which was, of course, why I now reclined on a rented, rock-hard, queen-size bed, waiting for a male prostitute to show up.” The blurb alone from Goodreads will make you want to pick up this book. Jocelyn Rhodes is a single mom with 2 kids who was having a hard time finding the right one. Forcing herself to find "the man" that will accept her and her kids at the same time, be a partner in everything ( yes. the BED included) , she tended to end up with the wrong men and finally succumb to hire an escort to fulfill her needs. Now enter, Sabian. A man who will give you what you need in bed with a price tag attached. This is a really sensitive issue. Revolving around the morals and norms of society, relationship and family. I really admire Jocelyn for her open-mindedness. It is too much to handle. This woman surely have no trust issues at all. I love her.And Sabian/Austin is an incredible dude. Though, I don't really understand why he can't just find another job other than being an escort or being a striving artist. I mean, there could be other jobs, right? Anyway, I think he's really cool and sincere. It's hard to believe it coming from someone in his line of work. But hell. He proved himself.The steamy scenes. Are steamy. I mean, Massage? Anyone?That EPILOGUE.. Christ. I think I shed a tear or two. It was so romantic!Over and Out.
