Player (21st Century Courtesan Book 1) by Pamela DuMond – Review by Robin Rankin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Player by Pamela DuMond left me wanting more. This is a cliffhanger and I’m usually too impatient to wait for the next book. I’m ready for the next book in the series but I knew going in what I was in for.

Evelyn has so many big heavy thing put on her shoulders at such a young age. With bills piling up she did what she had to do to keep her head above water. In my younger years I would have judged someone for doing what Evelyn did. But with age comes wisdom and I get it now.

I’m curious to see where this adventure takes us. What’s going to happen? Is she going to find love? Happiness? I certainly hope so.

If you’re on the fence about reading this book just do it.

Player (21st Century Courtesan Book 1) by Pamela Dumond sucked me in from the very beginning. I really felt connected with the characters and she did a wonderful job of making them come to life in words. I love that the main character’s job is a teacher by day. It makes the story all the more interesting and realistic. The story had me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book, and I hated to put it down. This is a great way to start the new year, with a new author and new series. I really loved it and can’t wait to read more by this author. I give this book an easy 5 stars! <3

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Player is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. I had never previously read any of the author’s work before but I was intrigued by the blurb and decided to give it a go.
The book was well written, with really great characters and it was flowing really well, then it just…ended. I was rather thrown by the ending. It felt like the book just came to an abrupt halt and I wasn’t prepared for it to be over. I still had so many questions that hadn’t been answered yet. At least it didn’t leave you on a cliff hanger. I just need to hope that book 2 in this series will continue Evie and Dylan’s story as I really need to know what the future holds for them.
I totally adored the main character Evelyn (Evie) Berlinger. Evie is a kindergarten teacher by day and high class escort by night. She has a special gift, as an empath, she is able to feel the feelings of those around her, leading to her helping them to get over any issues they may have. This gift makes her services sought after through the escort agency she belongs to.
As an escort Evie never actually had sex with any of her clients. That is, until she met high stakes poker played Dylan McAlister. There is an undeniable connection between the two of them. Just as the plot gets really interesting around these two, the book comes to an end. Praying that their story will continue in the next installment in this series.

Pamela DuMond’s Player is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series. This new adult/college romance that has been set as a stage for a potentially epic series. Evie is unforgettable. She is such a strong and capable character as more and more of her character is unearthed through the story. The paths she’s to embark will lead on a journey and as a reader, you question where exactly the author is going to drive her. Dylan’s character was exquisitely written, you could feel the emotions, thoughts, feelings rolling off his character with the details that are added. Pamela DuMond has a remarkable writing talent that shines in this novel, to such an extent that I cannot wait to read the subsequent books within the series.

I just finished reading Player *book 1* by Pamela DuMond.

Meet Evie Berlinger – a woman with many layers – a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a friend and an escort.

She has had to overcome a lot of hurdles in her young life, one being an incident that made a lasting impression on her 13 year old self, something that she still thinks about today.

Evie is a very selfless, caring person that tries her best to take care of everyone around her and when her empathic abilities come back in full force, she decides to use them in order to help Dylan McAlister.

Dylan McAlister has an interesting background as well and like Evie, he has had to learn to live with his not so perfect past.

Being an escort can be demanding enough but Evie goes above and beyond for her clients that are going through some tough times.

Amidst all of this, Evie starts to receive some fan mail.

Who is sending these letters to her and what is their ultimate goal?

I know I can’t wait to find out!

This was such an interesting book to read – very refreshing with some very solid characters!
I loved Evie’s friends and I loved meeting Dylan’s family as well.

Thumbs up for Pamela DuMond – I can’t wait to read her other books!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

PLAYER (21st Century Courtesan Book 1) by Pamela DuMond ​is bittersweet and an original story that is multi layered in its telling. There is lots of emotions, highs and lows and is complex and mysterious, as it is sexy and as suspenseful, as it is dramatic, and it is definitely captivating in its uniqueness.

Evies life has been plagued with mental health issues. Everything she has done is so she can take care of her family and that is why she is where she is today. She has a unique ability, that makes her highly sort after by the rich and famous but who is able to help her?

It is as beautiful as it is bittersweet. I am a definite Pamela DuMond fan after this read and there is so much more story to tell and I can not wait for the next book in the series.

Five Stars

Player is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. This is the first book I have read by this author, and I have to say, I hope I have the pleasure of reading many more. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. Evie is a school teacher by day and a high end escort at night. She is a very interesting character who feels she has to help the men she has dates with. When she meets Dylan, a professional poker player, things change for her. The book flows well and I enjoyed the writing style. I can’t wait to read what Ms. DuMond has instore for us in the next book in this series.

This story was amazing! This is the first story that i have read by this author and i honestly think i am going to become a little obsessed with her stories (they’re that good!!). I devoured this book and read it in one setting. I couldn’t put it down.
The main character is called Evie and i just cant help but feel for her and her tragic start in the world. She is strong and beautiful and she had such a giving soul. I loved her.
She meets Dylan through her work when she takes him on as a client. She has a special knack for helping men heal and that is exactly what Dylan is needing.. Will she end up helping him heal or will she end up destroying him in the process?
I highly recommend reading this book! Go get it now!
Happy Reading.

PLAYER (21st Century Courtesan Book 1) by
Pamela DuMond. This book had me in an unshakable grip from page one, although I’ll be honest I didn’t try shaking it too much. This story has so many amazing aspects that draw readers in and takes them on quite the journey. With amazing characters that you fall in love with. Evie is one of my favorite characters I’ve gotten to read about and her story is not one you want to miss. There’s some twists and turns that had me turning the pages as fast as I could so I could see what was going to happen. It’s well written and paced nicely, never feeling rushed or lacking anything. It’s a well balanced story with characters you connect with and root for. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it.

Player: 21st Century Courtesan Book 1 written by Pamela DuMond. Players is a quick read about Evie and her empath ability. The story is told from Evie’s point of view and centers around her life, her choices and her newest admirer, except she doesn’t know who it is and they are scaring her by leaving notes and other things laying around, like in her locked apartment. I will say there story at the beginning and then at the end when they make a comeback makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. You really want to see if anything comes out of seeing Easton even if he does despise her.
