Reformed playboy stories are a weakness of mine….but in this case, it’s a male escort.

If you’ve read Boyfriend for Hire, then you’ve already met Case. Owner and sex-god of an escort business, Case is all for “satisfaction guaranteed”. That is, until his ‘love wand’ goes on strike. And to make matters worse, the deadline for his book is fast approaching. But in walks Sienna, his best friend’s younger sister. She could either be Case’s saving grace, helping him run his company on the business-end of things along with keeping him on a tight schedule to complete his manuscript. OR she could be another distraction Case without a doubt doesn’t need, especially when his love wand comes back to life at the mere presence of her, wanting nothing more than to show her a good time. Sienna is supposed to be off-limits…or is she just what Case needs to fill the empty space in his life and heart?

The Hookup Handbook is another fantastically written, sweet and sexy book by the uber-talented Kendall Ryan. This story not only delivers a unique story line, but the emotional aspects of the book really drives the story forward. Granted, the sexual tension and erotic situations within the story takes it from simmering to scorching in a matter of page turns. But I find it’s the conflicting desires and passionate connection between Case and Sienna that solidifies the book as a pure, heartfelt romance.

A highly enjoyable and charming quick read!

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. 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.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.
