SPOTLIGHT REVIEW... A Taste Of Utopia by L. Duarte

Seth Phoenix knows how it feels to have lost it all. Which is why he worked so hard to gain it all back. As one of the best male escort in the country, he has it all—money, looks, and the greatest job description: to pleasure women. He wants for nothing in life. Until one day, completely captivated by a beauty and innocence he had never seen before, he marries one of his clients.
Charlotte “Lottie” Cahan is a student at the prestigious Yale. As a self-professed geek, she wears thick glasses and her nose is always buried in a book. But on her 21st birthday, her best friend convinces her to go to Vegas for a night of fun. Despite her insecurities and unworldly innocence, at a whim, she marries a man she just met. What she doesn’t know is that this man was hired to give her 21 orgasms on her 21 birthday.
This steamy relationship seems to be destined for forever. But the world is a smaller place than they both believed and secrets, long forgotten and abandoned, will resurface to haunt them. 
Can they survive?
 Or is this fated to be just a taste of utopia?

This Book Nerd Says

When I was approached to read this book I jumped on it because that synopsis just called out to me. It's one of those stories where I feel like the synopsis does a great job of telling you what you need to know about the premise of the plot before you really get started so I won't talk too much about that. 
What I will do is talk to you about the more that this one gave me. I completely devoured this one in a one sitting read. 

 The main part of the story opens in Vegas on Charlotte's 21st birthday... 
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right?
What is supposed to be a carefree night transforms into something of the pages of the romance books Charlotte is a big fan of. 

Full of the sexy, A Taste Of Utopia also brings a stark contrast in the form of the past that Seth has buried away. When he lays eyes on Lottie, everything begins to change and the past that he has left behind somehow seems to catch up with him. It's these glimpses of the vulnerable Seth that I adored most throughout the story. 

I was able to just fully enjoy myself with this story, so much so that I was pleasantly surprised by some of the twists that came my way. I can say without a doubt that I found this to be fun and enjoyable. It was a love story with all the fun of Vegas backdrop with the foundation of imperfect realism. 

I am giving A TASTE OF UTOPIA 4 Cherry Flavored Stars!
