Marc Edwards is a male escort in Sin City. He’s used to being into whatever his clients are into, and doing everything they fantasize about. He’s also used to keeping parts of himself from the people closest to him, and denying himself what he truly wants.
He gains a client who’s unlike any other client he’s had. Nathalia LaBelle actually tries to get to know non-escort Marc. She wants to find out what it is he fantasizes about, and isn’t bothered by the nature of his job.
Has Marc found someone to open up to? Will Nathalia be able to handle what he desires? What he craves? Lines begin to blur, and Marc struggles knowing a relationship with a client is something that can’t happen.
But what happens when Lincoln Cash, a man who has his own special relationship with Nathalia, comes into the picture with his own desires, rules, and sinful requests? Will they be able to get on the same page, or will mistrust run rampant and ruin everybody’s chances at getting what they want?
This novel contains M/M, M/F/M, M/F, M/M/F scenes. If any of those kinds of sex scenes bother you, I wouldn't suggest reading this one. This novel also contains explicit language, and some mild sadomasochism. Nothing too extreme, just kinky. Meant for readers over 18.
Author's Note Pt. 2
While this is book three in The Escort Series, it can be read as a standalone. There is no need to read Living in Sin and Unforgivable Sin first, as this one starts in the time that Living in Sin did, and then follows through the series without giving much away about the first two. You may get some information regarding the other stories, but not much. Marc was scarce in those books, and we now get to see what he was up to.
“How are you, Lincoln?”
“I’m well. How have you been?”
“I’ve been good, just a little busy.”
“Well, let me take you out to dinner tonight.”
“I have plans tonight, Lincoln. I’m sorry.”
“Oh, well, how about tomorrow night?” he asks, unperturbed.
“I also have plans for tomorrow night.”
“Hmm,” he grunts. “Is this new guy the one taking up all of your time?”
“I’m not really sure why that’s any of your business.”
“You know why.”
“Lincoln, we’ve discussed this before. Any reason why we aren’t anything is because of you.”
“But that could be changing now, don’t you think?”
“I don’t know yet.”
“Nathalia, you know I want you, and I know you want me too.”
“We’ve tried.” I rub my hand across my forehead.
“We only tried once and it didn’t work out because we didn’t agree on…”
“I know why it didn’t work!” I snap, cutting him off.
“I think we can both agree now, though.”
I can almost hear him smile through the phone.
“I think we both know it takes more than just us to agree.”
“I do,” he states firmly.
There’s a brief moment of silence as we both wait for the other to say something.
“I have to go, Lincoln.”
“I expect to hear from you later.”
“Don’t expect to hear what you want to hear.”
His deep laugh rumbles through the phone. “Oh, Nathalia. I always hear what I want to hear. Sometimes it just takes longer than I’d like it to. This will work, my darling. Just you wait and see. When it does happen, both of our fantasies will become reality. Isn’t that what you want?”
I take a deep breath and blow it out loudly. “You know it is.”
“Good. I’ll speak to you soon. Enjoy your evening.”
He hangs up before I can respond.
With my vision partially blocked, I can’t see what Marc is holding in his hand because he’s keeping it fairly low. From all the objects he showed me moments before, I’d be happy with any of them. My body thrums with anticipation, and excitement shoots through my veins. I’ve been begging him to give me all of him for a while now. Perhaps he was too concerned about scaring me off, but I don’t think he realizes how much I love the pleasure and pain combination. I think he’s still stuck in escort mode, thinking he could cross a line with a client and get in trouble.
My body is begging for him to touch me. I can’t keep still, even with my arms and legs strapped down. I squirm, wanting his hands all over me.

4 out of 5 stars
*I received an arc from the author in exchange for my honest review*
I adored the first two books in this series, and have been looking forward to the next instalment of the brilliant Escort Series. We finally get to learn more about the fantastically sexy Marc. Sins and Mistrust is a book about love and relationships and the realisation that how the two combine can be as individual as the people involved want it to be. Isabel has written a compelling, beautifully flowing story about Marc, Nathalia, Lincoln and there often complicated relationship. It's a great read and full of seriously hot and sexy, knicker-combusting scenes!
