I’m the guy you call when you need to impress your overbearing family, your boss, or your ex. Yeah, I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.
I’m the guy who’ll make you feel beautiful, desired, and worshipped . . . all for a steep price. I’m hired to make you shine, and I always deliver.
I’ll be whatever you want me to be for one night—except my true self. This is just a job, a role I play to earn a paycheck.
But I’m not the guy who falls for a client. Not once in six years.
And then I meet Elle. Her friend has hired me to escort her to a wedding, but Elle doesn’t know we’re just pretending.
There’s a fire between us I never expected. A connection I haven’t felt in so long. One kiss, and I’m losing all control.
But what will happen when she finds out who I really am?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Boyfriend For Hire was a cute, quick story, that I easily plowed through in about two hours. Elle’s best friend, Christine, is marrying her brother. Since Elle is just coming off of a bad breakup with the groom’s best friend, Christine hires Nic, a male escort, to pose as an old college friend and be Elle’s blind date for the wedding. Naturally, Nic and Elle have an immediate connection, he feels like he can really be himself and he’s not “working” when he’s with her — but he’s a paid male escort. What does he do?
The plot is predictable, but it was still an enjoyable story. Kendall Ryan does a great job of showing the reader how Nic is struggling with what he wants versus what he should do when it comes to Elle and how he makes a living.
I would have liked to have gotten some more details out of both characters. It bugged me that we never even find out what Elle’s brother’s name is (stupid, I know, but it irked me). And why did Nic not have any other job prospects besides working for Case? And what did his parents think he did? His parents seem like such easygoing people, and I know from having an Italian mother of my own that they are always up in your business, so how did he hide his job from them?
Nevertheless, Boyfriend For Hire is a feel-good romance with a HEA that ties it all up in a nice, neat, sexy little bow. This book kicks off a series of interconnected standalones, as Nic’s boss, Case, is the hero in KR’s next release, The Hookup Handbook.
