I was completely enthralled and blown away by this book! Player is Book 1 in this series, which is written by Pamela DuMond. There were so many highs and lows and emotional turns that it was definitely a page turner! Evelyn or Evie is empathic. She is very in tuned with others feelings. From the time that she was little she has had to learn to control her empathic surges. Not only that but she has had to deal with a bi-polar mother. Especially when her mother had caused tragedy to others that has followed Evie into adulthood. However, with having to take care of her mother and sister along with student loans, Evie needed to find a way to make more money. Her friend told her of this escort service. Evie decided to try it out and along with that comes the possibility of love and fear. Fear from potential stalkers comes into play because of this job. The potentiality of love also is a factor, which comes to into play with one of her clients. However, her empathic abilities has helped her become one of the most sought after escorts in Chicago. I absolutely loved this book! I really cannot wait for the next book because I need to find out what happens! The characters are amazing and really play well in the storyline. I loved the authors writing style. She really makes you a part of the story. The sexy scenes are severely hot and give just enough for the meat of the story. I was truly impressed with this book and this is a book I would definitely recommend!

So this book was a pleasant surprise as far as it was definitely not what I expected I would be reading after reading the synopsis. This is my first book by this author and I loved everything about it except the ending…. The flow was awesome and I wasn’t even paying attention to where I was in the story and then just like that it was done and I had no idea this story would be continued, thankfully it did not end on a huge cliffhanger but there was enough of one that I wanted to throw my kindle when I was done.

I loved Evie once I got to know her, and that didn’t take long after reading about her life growing up and then where she was in the present. She has a special ability that has allowed her to make enough money to take care of her mother and her sister, but she wants out and has finally gotten to the point where she can move on yet there are a few men that are making that very hard for her as well as a stalker that she just can’t shake. She has fallen in love with Dylan, one of her clients and this whole part of the storyline had me so frustrated and although I loved them together they still had me so angry and I wanted to crawl through my kindle and slap them both.

I need the rest of this story, I have so many questions and I need to know what the future holds for Evie, will she be able to identify her stalker, will Dylan and Evie figure it out and have a future together? And so many other things…

I highly recommend this book, it was awesome and I can not wait to check out what else this author has available.

cour·te·san/ˈkôrdəzən,ˈkôrdəzan
noun
a prostitute, especially one with wealthy or upper-class clients. (Miriam Webster Dictionary)

I was super surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. I had preconceived ideas as to what it would be about and it was so much more!!!

This is a well written tale about a woman who is in tune with her empathic talent and uses it to help people heal in their life. We get to read the story from not only her point of view, but we get to”hear” her emotions as well (I enjoyed Hope most of all).

This book has a lot of layers with enough suspense that I’m invested in the journey and will immediately search for the next story in the series. (Crossing my fingers that it is written)

There are open door sex scenes but they aren’t super drawn out or used as filler to the story.

I believe this is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will be reading more in the future!!!

Player is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series and what an amazing story it is. This is my first book aby Pamela DuMond and I love her writing style. She has a very descriptive writing style. She draws you into the story with the character story line. The main character in the story is Evie. Evie is a special escort who is also an empath. She has that talent to really help the men who hired her. She is getting ready to retire but she has two more clients to see for the last time. With that in mind she is starting to feel there is something wrong and she cannot shake that feeling. Will one of her last clients be her very last client or will the client be healed by her service?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Player by Pamela DuMond is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series. This book is full of mystery and intrigue and it will keep you reading through to the end.
Evie has a rather unusual second job. Hired as an escort to the wealthiest around due to her empathetic abilities she is able to earn enough money to support her family. However there is risk involved with the work she does. She knows she needs to cut ties and move on. With only a few clients left that is exactly what she will do. But will she be able to get out before it is too late? And will she be able to help heal her latest client?
This book was great. It had a unique and intriguing storyline to it. The characters fit so well with the story the author was telling. They were compelling to read about. I was never quite sure where the story might take us. I’m glad I picked this book up!

Player (21st Century Courtesan #1)Player by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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!

Got to be honest I absolutely loved this book! It was exciting to read, it was entertaining and I couldn’t put it down! It was also a fantastic introduction to Ms DuMond as a brand new author to me. The story was fast paced and the flow was perfect.
I could feel the tension between Evie and Dylan rolling off the pages as I took in their story. I really liked Evie, she was a strong independent woman but as I got to know her more and the more I read about her I could see that this was a front and she was covering up for things that had happened in her past. Dylan is extremely hot and I just knew that the connection and chemistry between the two of them would be good – and I wasn’t wrong!!
I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series and I really need to check out the prequel to the series too!
A fantastic 5 star read that I highly recommend!!

I loved this book. The main characters are well developed. The book moves quickly. I liked the transition between past and present and thought the author did a great job navigating the storyline. All in all a great book. This is the first I’ve read from this author and I hope it won’t be the last.
