It wouldn’t be a big deal, but her ex-husband was her high school sweetheart, and now he’s married to the slut Leah caught him with in bed. She won’t let the biggest failure of her life overshadow her success. When her best friend suggests she hire a date, Leah thinks the idea is scandalous. But for one weekend, she wants to forget her mistakes and pretend she has everything her ex took away from her. Jagger Holiday makes women’s fantasies come true— But working as a male escort leaves him feeling empty. He turns to photography to fill the void. When Jagger gets a call from a lonely single mom who needs the same thing he does, he wants more. He wants her. Leah and Jagger have no problem convincing everyone at the reunion they’re together. She should’ve known better than to think there’d be no strings attached. After all, he’s a professional.
Successful designer Leah doesn't want to go to her high school reunion, after all her ex-husband will be there with his new wife. Leah decides to get through it by hiring an escort for the weekend.

It is not made easy by a mean ex-husband and a bunch of high school re-unioners who are nothing but bullies and still act like they're in school.
Leah, as a hard-working, single mom, has carved a career as a successful interior designer with a regular TV slot. I didn't quite connect with Leah as I would have expected. The elements were all there: cheated on, built up her career and raised their daughter, school life was a living hell but she came across as a little cold and calculated in her approach. Jagger was a mystery and didn't really let a lot of himself out. It was however an interesting read that kept you hooked
