Title: A Taste of Utopia
By: L. Duarte
Publication Date: January 4, 2016
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?

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
“Something about her tugs at my heart, a magnetic pull of sorts.”
Seth loses it all. Including himself. But buries his loneliness in his job of pleasuring women. He has no other goals, but to make money and live life. Until he sets his eyes on Charlotte (Lottie) Cahan. He’s drawn to her. So when destiny places them together at the right time, they make a huge decision that changes everything.
“In order to preserve my soul, I relinquished pieces of me.”
When Seth and Lottie embark on this journey together, they are scared, but something just feels right. They feel right. You ever feel you’re missing something in life? Your soul is bleak and dark? Their journey to love is moving, emotional, funny, beautiful. Despite how they came to be, it’s real.
“Can you feel it? Can you feel my heart beating? Because ever since I saw you under that consolation, I have felt every fucking beat of my heart.”
Seth is a broken soul, but he finds healing in Lottie. Despite how undeserving he feels about love, he wants to hold on to it as long as he can. He loves with conviction. His heart is so big and so full. Seth loves with honesty and fearlessness. How amazing is it to be loved by someone as deeply and relentlessly as Seth loves Lottie. And Lottie? She loves Seth beyond reason. Her love is light.
“God, I’ll take whatever you feel. Even if it’s just a sparkle. I’ll flame it to life.”
A Taste Of Utopia is a compelling story about two people that never knew love could exist for them until they found each other. While the synopsis makes it seem that these two fall instantly in love. That is not the case. There is an immediate connection, but there is so much more. Their pasts have made them the people they are today. It has affected them. Molded them. Their past is what has brought them together by fate. And fate? It’s magic. And so are Lottie and Seth. You know the moment where you can’t breathe? When you’re in a room and you only see one person. That is Lottie and Seth. Completely. Two lost souls finally make their way home.
“It’s like I existed all these years with the beating of my heart suspended. Then you came along and started it in motion.”
This story has a unique storyline and is much deeper than you could imagine. This story is fascinating and the author flawlessly brings her reader directly into the heart of her characters. Secrets are revealed. You understand the rash decision that Lottie and Seth make. You see that their hearts outweighed their minds. The writing is gripping and I found myself easily lost in the story. The author has a true talent in writing beautifully flawed characters that love deeply and wholeheartedly.
“Seth has just seared through my soul and rooted in the most hidden place of my heart. A secret place we reserve for the unique soul that belongs to us.”
A Taste Of Utopia attests to the fact that love knows no time. Love doesn’t care about circumstances. It just is. I suggest you make no preconceptions about this book. It is multilayered and the author is truly talented in putting her own spin on love stories that you can never find anywhere else. This was an unconventional love story. But it is theirs.
I have found that there is only one thing better than reading, and that is writing. I’m always torn between the two. I’m also frequently torn between chocolate and coffee. However, I emphatically don’t like the month of February, lies, and flies. For me, bravery is defined by the courage to do what we fear the most. I live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. Drop a few lines. I would love to hear from you.
