Boyfriend for Hire

 

 

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?

Book Blurb:

Some people live by a set of rules.

I have only one, and I learned it the hard way: Don’t let anyone get too close.

The night I met Isaac, I followed that rule.

No last names exchanged, no details about our lives, and we spent the next hour soothing unspoken pains.

When our hour was over, we went our separate ways, never to see each other again.

Until the day I suddenly needed help.

We shared a shocked expression, we shared a stuttering greeting. Just wait until he finds out what else we share.

I have a feeling he’s going to take my rule and throw it out the window.

But not without a fight.

There’s a reason for my rule, and I’m not going to forget it anytime soon.

A touching and tender romance novel about those who break our hearts, and the people who repair them.

Book Blurb:

Ember

I was eighteen when Noah Sutton entered my life. He was destined for greatness, and I could barely scrape enough money together to help my mother pay our rent.

We fell in love.

A summer of pushing limits, breaking rules, and living in moments I thought would last forever.

None of that stopped him from leaving.

Noah

All my life I had one passion, one goal, a singular pursuit. Then Ember happened. A free spirit, a girl who didn’t need music to dance.

She filled my rigid world with the very thing I didn’t know it was missing.

I’ve always regretted leaving her.

What’s the point of realizing a dream if she isn’t there to share it with?

Getting her back won’t be easy. She’s moved on.

My whole life has been one big competition, and it just so happens I’ve never accepted defeat.

Game on.

The Lifetime of a Second by Jennifer Millikin

PURCHASE NOW!

Amazon (Kindle Unlimited)

Book Blurb:

Brynn

Escape. That was my sole focus. Forget the headlines, forget the threats. Forgetting what I’ve done? Never.

To disappear, I needed money. I fled the big city in the desert to hide in a small town amongst the pines.

The plan? Blend in, work until I have what I need, and then vanish.

The problem? Connor Vale ruined everything.

Falling for him would be easy, if it weren’t for one inescapable truth: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and nobody around me is safe.

Connor

Brynn Montgomery slammed into my life like a category five hurricane. She stepped in front of my truck, and everything changed. One second to swerve, one second to jump from my vehicle, one second to never be the same.

I gave her a job. It wasn’t a smart idea.

She’s guarded, withdrawn, and aloof. She wears shirts with snarky sayings and won’t let me get within a foot of her.

She doesn’t talk much, so I watch her move. Unspoken pain pours from her eyes, emotion moves with each twist of her lips. Hidden behind her prickly exterior is a tenderness that mesmerizes me.

Every day she reveals a piece of herself.

Every day I get closer to learning about the fear that grips her.

Every day I fall a little more in love with her.

Title: Dead and Gone

Author: Jennifer Rebecca

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Day: March 11th

Cover by Alyssa Garcia at Uplifting Designs.

About Dead and Gone:

You ever have an out of body experience? Like one of those moments where you’re standing on a street corner watching yourself do something monumentally stupid? Something you know you shouldn’t do but you just can’t help yourself?

 

Three weeks ago, Trent and I were deep into the Honeymoon stage of love, I swore I wouldn’t be the first one to rock the boat—Lord knows with our two Irish tempers it would happen soon enough—so when he made me promise to keep my nose and our grandmothers out of his investigation, I did.

 

It didn’t hurt that his head was buried between my legs at the time either. But then Daisy called me begging for help and what kind of bestie would I be if I shut the door in her face? That’s right, a sh*tty one. So I packed up our grandmothers and their gogo boots, g-strings and pasties to get to the bottom of things. Only problem is if Trent catches us I’ll be dead meat, folks.

 

My name is Shelby Whitmore, Funeral and Obituaries columnist for the San Diego Metro News and most likely to be single again if I survive this sh*t. But hey, at least I’m still a hit with the blue hairs . . .

Exclusive Excerpt:

I’m dead meat. Literally. Dead. Meat.

Last month, when Trent and I started up again, I promised him that I wouldn’t do anything crazy. I wouldn’t go off half cocked. And most importantly, I wouldn’t follow our grandmothers down the crazy assed rabbit hole of Granny Grabbers and Dangerous Dames.

“You’re not police officers,” he had said.

And I agreed. We’re not.

Trent also might have coerced me into agreeing with him in the most despicable ways. One minute my legs are wrapped around his neck and my eyes are rolled back in my head and I’m one more “Oh, yes,” away from the promised land.

“Shell,” he said to me in between licks and kisses. “Promise me you won’t do anything crazy.” He kissed me again and again.

“Yes,” I ignored him as I rocked against his mouth moving closer and closer.

“Promise,” he commanded as I spiraled closer and closer to the edge.

“Yes!” I cried.

“You promise?” He asked me again but I was too far gone.

“Sweet Petunia, yes!”

“I’m so glad we agree. You have no idea how happy this makes me, Shelby.” Trent smiled as he slithered up my body like the snake that he is.

Although, I had an idea how happy my climax had made him as it was currently poking me in the thigh. Before I had a chance to catch my breath or even question what, exactly, Trent and I agreed on, he slid all the way inside me to the hilt and my eyes rolled back in my head.

*****

As It turned out, we had allegedly agreed that I wouldn’t go on any more cappers with my friend, Daisy, the retired hooker, and our grandmothers. Sophia was out, she was at some big, fancy figure skating competition in Chicago.

I still agreed. I mean, what kind of trouble could two widowed senior citizens, a retired hooker, and an obituaries columnist for the local paper get into. I mean really. Lightning doesn’t strike twice. It doesn’t, right?

And Trent and I had worked out some kinks. He yelled less. I pretended to listen more. And when I didn’t he used his handsome mouth in better ways than yelling if you catch my drift. We were officially in the love bubble. The honeymoon stage. I wasn’t ready to rock the boat for just anything all willy nilly.

But Daisy, my sweet, fabulous, eccentrically dressed best friend had a problem. Several of her . . . ummm . . . colleagues from the old days were missing. Like really missing, not shacked up with a John. And she was worried. Yes, my sweet friend, Daisy, had a problem and she came to me for help, advice, I don’t really know what. All I know is that led me to today as I sit, handcuffed to the pipes of a bathroom sink in a filthy motel just this side of Mexico, dressed like a cheap hooker. Yep, I’m in trouble, folks. Just like I said . . . Dead. Meat. My name is Shelby Whitmore, funeral and obituaries columnist for the San Diego Metro News and most likely to be single again if I survive this shit. I guess I should start at the beginning . . .

About Worth Fighting For:

Nothing in Kellen O’Connell’s life has come easy. He knows better than anyone that if you want something, you better fight for it.

When he finds himself drawn to a feisty kindergarten teacher, he realizes he’s going to have to fight harder than ever if he wants to know her secrets.

If they can learn to trust each other, they might just find something worth fighting for.

Exclusive Excerpt:

While the kids were held captive by one of the men donning a heavy tan fire suit, Ali felt someone come stand beside her. She glanced to her right and found Kellen. He seemed much bigger, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with her, than he had the other day. Ali wouldn’t consider herself short, and he still had at least six inches on her.

“You doin’ okay?” he whispered, keeping his eyes trained forward.

“Aces. Why do you ask?”

“Oh, I don’t know. Could have something to do with the pale skin and choppy breathing. Or maybe it’s the way you’re swaying on your feet.”

Crap.

She hadn’t thought it was so noticeable.

She caught the eye of one of her students who’d turned to talk to the boy next to him and motioned for him to be quiet and pay attention before she whispered back, barely moving her lips, “Occupational hazard. I’m fine.”

“Of course you are, but why don’t you have a seat before you fall over?”

Ali gritted her teeth. More than a little annoyed that he’d noticed. Annoyed that she felt like crap. Annoyed that he’d ordered her around. And annoyed that the pills were barely keeping her on her feet. “I said, I’m fine.”

“Whatever you say, Ali Cat.”

“Excuse me? Did you just call me an alley cat?”

When he didn’t respond, she glanced up at him and found him completely relaxed, calmly watching the firemen who began taking questions from the kids.

That only annoyed her further.

“You know, in polite society, people don’t go around pointing out how crappy someone else looks.”

“And, if you’d retract your claws a little, you’d realize I never said you looked crappy. I was simply asking if you were feeling okay.”

Double crap.

Ali closed her eyes.

He was right, and she was being a bitch again.

She had ninety more minutes before she could head home and quarantine herself—and her bitchiness—in a hot bath where she couldn’t infect anyone else.

But there was something she needed to do first.

“I’m sorry.”

“Accepted,” Kellen easily returned.

“No, not just for today,” she continued. “For last week in front of the diner. I was snippy that day, too, and you didn’t deserve it then any more than you deserve it now.”

“Has everyone been graced with your sunny demeanor lately, or am I just that lucky?”

She huffed out a surprised laugh. “You’ve been luckier than most.”

“Any particular reason?”

None that she was going to share. “Luck of the draw, I guess.”

“Fair enough.”

“And I appreciate your concern. Thank you for checking on me.”

See, I can be nice.

War Storm

Aveyard_War Storm

War Storm by Victoria Aveyard

Published: may 15th, 2018

Publisher: HarperTeen

Rating: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

Summary: Victory comes at a price.

Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal’s betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart—and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her—Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all… starting with the crown on Maven’s head.

But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal’s powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force. But Maven is driven by an obsession so deep, he will stop at nothing to have Mare as his own again, even if it means demolishing everything—and everyone—in his path.

War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced?

In the epic conclusion to Victoria Aveyard’s stunning series, Mare must embrace her fate and summon all her power… for all will be tested, but not all will survive.

So I loved the series and I thought they were really good audiobooks. So obviously I read this las tone in an audiobook and it was fantastic! I liked the narrators, and I thought they added depth to these characters.

Mare will always be my favorite character because she has so many faults and knows it and does her best to help others and save her world. I loved her love for her family and her best friend Kilorn. She never ever abandoned him , did her best to keep him safe, and they were so close throughout the series. They might not have had anything romantically, but they remained friends and always stuck by each other. I appreciated him, because when Mare mentioned she didn’t care for him as a lover, he didn’t pressure her about it. He left her alone to do his own thing, but he never forced her to change her mind or try to guilt her into it. In a way he respected her choice and I loved that about him.

And Mare’s love for her parents was a favorite as well. They were so present in her life, and were there for her so much and were involved in everything as well! They love her so much and I enjoyed seeing them. And Mare with her sister and brothers were sweet too!

I was hooked trying to see where Mare and Cal would go, especially after what happened at the end of the third book. Seeing them struggle to control their feelings was interesting, and it as even more interesting seeing Evangeline do her best to get them back together, That was unexpected. I do wish we had more conclusive ending with them. I mean I understood where Mare was coming from, but the way it was present left me feeling it wasn’t really resolved. Seeing Cal grow as a character was impressive. I felt bad for him mainly because, in order to follow his grandmother’s wishes, he has to be king. And he can’t make his own choices about a lot of things, especially on who he loves and marries. He sacrificed a lot for her and it was depressing to see that he was suffering for it. I think what made me sad with Cal was the aftermath of a certain character’s death. He was pretty broken up about it and it was heartbreaking seeing g him struggle and mourn that loss that he tried so hard to fix in the end. And again I was a bit upset that his ending with Mare wasn’t really solid because I wanted to see a more final ending for them both.

I’ve mentioned Evangeline before in this review already but I want to bring her up again and say her character was really a big surprise for me. But I think that made me like her in the end. And her love story was great as well! But like Cal was suffering, you knew Evangeline was suffering as well with what happened at the end of book 4, and how she deals with those repercussions.

But I hate her mother and father so badly, her brother was hit or miss but ultimately I appreciated her love and protectiveness for her brother. But her mother and father were horrible people, I hated them so much! And reading more about them in War Storm made me hate them even more!

Also Iris was vicious. I didn’t think her character had much depth to her at first, but reading more about her in this novel allowed me to get a better idea of her. She was cunning and her mother and sister were just as bad. Victoria Aveyard makes really unique characters and worlds. I’m really bummed that this series is over but I enjoyed the amazing ride I was brought on and I cannot wait to see what Victoria brings to the table in the future!

The Bourbon Kings Trilogy

Banner_1.jpg

The Bourbon Kings, The Angel’s Share, The Devil’s Cut by J. R. Ward

Published: July 28th, 2015 (The Bourbon Kings)

Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group

Rating: 5-star-rating-clipart-1 (for all 3)

Summary for The Bourbon Kings: For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.

For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.

As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive. 

So I’ve never read a book by J R Ward, and reading this trilogy definitely fixed that for me. As as hoped me what I was missing by not reading her work before. I was absolute trash for this trilogy and I finished it in the son of a few weeks.

Lane and Lizzy were my OTP from page 1. I loved seeing their romance blossom in the course of three books. It was also amazing seeing what a really good relationship was like compared to all the others that were developing in the story. They had their ups and downs in the book one and three, but they always stuck by each other in their good times and bad. You could really see that Lane appreciated her comfort and strength in moments where he really needed it. He was expected to be strong as the face of the family after everything went down as well as with what was happening with Miss Aurora, but he wasn’t afraid to take comfort in his love with Lizzy. I always wanted more from them because they were my favorite couple, their POV’s were my favorite, and I just wanted the best for them and their ending. BTW, their storyline in the end was the sweetest it could have been, and I’m sad the series ended where it did because I wanted to read more about them and their future because things were just getting started!

Edward was another interesting character as well. It was sad seeing him the way he was after the incident in South America, and how mentally and physically deteriorated he was throughout the time of this novel. Seeing Sutton and how she really cared about him was a nice change to his timeline as well because I was so sad that nothing seemed to be going his way so it was nice seeing this relationship with Sutton develop as the novels went on. I love them together, she’s honestly perfect for him. But seeing Edward with his work Shelby really made me laugh. She definitely got him out of his funk before things went down. She took no shit from him and really took care of him with everything and it was such a positive part in his story. I adore Shelby and her tough love.

I don’t really know what to feel about max because he honestly wasn’t around much. I mean he was the typical bad boy with his tattoos and the motorcycle. His story wasn’t really touched upon but I liked the mystery surrounding him. I mean there were flashbacks showing what a troublemaker he is but yeah I kind of wish we got more with him, but at the same time I liked the other characters more than him in a way so I wasn’t too put off about that.

Now onto Gin, oh my gosh she was a hot mess but I think that’s what I liked about her. She had the best change out of anyone in the story. You read about her in book 1, and you almost don’t recognize her at the end of book 3. She really opened her heart and mind and was willing to do what she could for her child. She gave up so much in the end for her and it really was so nice and sweet. She even pulled a stunt on her husband all for the sake of her kid. And Gin and Samuel T were just crazy…like woah! But at the same time they were so good for each other, even if it didn’t look like it…but he was the only one who could take her crap. I’m happy they got the ending they deserved.

I think my favorite character outside the couples was Miss Aurora! She was smart, sweet, strong, and so full of love for Lane and the others. I adored reading about her from Lane’s POV because he just adored her so much. And I liked seeing her treat him with so much love. You could see the positive impact she had on the characters through the way they spoke of her and thought of her. I think just overall this book was filled with an amazing cast of characters, and really addicting storyline, and just really intense love stories.

I cannot wait to check out J R Ward’s other novels, which after reading this series I will be doing sooner rather than later! Highly recommend this series! It was so good!! I didn’t want to put it down!

Plus the narrator for the audiobooks was really good! I liked him! He did a good job!

The Wicked King

The_Wicked_King_cover

The Wicked King by Holly Black

Published: January 8th, 2019

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

Rating: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

Summary: Jude has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were biddable. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a faerie world.

So I am really enjoying this series a lot! Honestly! I feel like the whole dark atmosphere is really doing it for me! I have a love/hate relationship with the characters which I think is why I enjoy them so much. The characters are horrible people/creatures but that is what makes them so unique and investing.

And I love seeing the progress of things between Cardan and June, and how things come to play towards the middle and the end. Like its a crazy ride I tell you! I hated (and loved) where the book ended mainly because I was getting so into it and I was sitting on the edge of my seat and now have to wait a full year for the next one! But Holly Black is a master storyteller and she just gets you so hooked that when the book ends you’re not ready!

I don’t want to say much about the storyline or the characters because if this is the second book, but wow I just think Holly once again created a world of unique characters. They have so much depth to them and they are really not what they seem at first. They really do keep you on your toes! There are layer upon layers to them and I feel like there is so much I don’t know about them that has yet to be revealed.

Also let me just say that that ending was insane! I was not expecting that at all and it just blew me away! Like it was really unexpected!

I was shook!

The next book feels so far away! I can’t even deal with it! Honestly if you’re looking for a series about dark fae and magic, read this series! Even if you’re not, just read it! I promise you won’t regret it! Its amazing! The audiobook of the Cruel Prince is fantastic as well so if you feel the need to read it that way, check them out! The narrator is really good! Highly recommend them both!

Exclusive Excerpt:

Looking up, I’m frozen, stunned into silence at the sight in front of me. She’s absolutely goddamn gorgeous. She ain’t just some pretty young girl. She’s breathtakingly beautiful. She shouldn’t be in this shithole, she should be modeling or some shit.

Glancing to her nametag, I see her name clearly, Channing. She doesn’t belong here, her long blonde hair is braided down her shoulder, her eyes have some dark circles beneath them, but they’re the color of the Texas sky. I can’t even drag my gaze down to the rest of her, I’m so mesmerized by her pretty face.

I hear everyone’s order and almost groan when those blue eyes meet mine. “Sweet tea, darlin’.” I grin.

Her cheeks tint pink and she dips her head before turning and hurrying away. I watch her ass as she goes. It’s encased in tight as fuck blue jeans, and those are tucked into a pair of worn brown boots. Goddamn. Fuck. Perfect.

“Don’t even go there,” Wyatt warns.

Turning my gaze from Channing’s ass, I look over at him, lifting a brow in question. “She ain’t even twenty-one,” he points out. “She’s also got a bit of a reputation. Better to just stay away,” he mutters.

I snort. “Got my own rep, cousin,” I point out.

Wyatt shakes his head. “Trust me, that’s a whole fucking mess of drama in a five-foot-five hot body that you don’t want any part of,” he mutters.

About the Author:

I was born and raised in a small farming town in California. I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 19. We married four years later and have two little boys! We lived in Oregon for a few years while he served in the US Coast Guard.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we’re raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
