Player by Pamela DuMond is the first book in her 21st Century Courtesan series and what a fantastic first book. This book grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let go until the last page. I easily gave up all of my day to blaze through this one and can’t wait until the next installment comes out. Following the story of Dylan McAlister and Evie it was easy to fall in love with them. Evie is a woman of seduction by night and education by day. Becoming a seductress was supposed to be to help her family but the more she does it the more she falls in love with the power that it gives her. When Evie meets Dylan, she thinks he is going to be just another job, but there is something about Dylan that brings out a desire and passion from her that she wasn’t prepared for. When Dylan first set his eyes on Evie, he wasn’t prepared for what she brought out in him. His broken past kept him from connecting to others, but these two connected from meeting one. Can Evie help Dylan with the broken pieces of himself? Can Dylan keep Evie beyond their night together? There is a touch of suspense to this lovers tale, as Evie’s stalker isn’t happy with her budding love affair with Dylan. Can these two get past their dark pasts, or will they be pulled apart by differences. DuMond is a new to me author, but I am so glad that I picked this book up. The chemistry between Evie and Dylan was palpable, and the playful banter between them made this an easy story to fall into. If you are looking for a great story that will take you away from everything for a couple hours than this is the story for you. This book is a part of a series, and while I haven’t read book two yet, if it’s anything like this one I can’t wait to read it. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read and a new author!
