About The Hookup Handbook:

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.

My Thoughts:

Case Smith thinks he’s the right person to give others advice – or pointers. I will say that it was hard to feel sorry for him. There were times that I wanted to pull out my small violin. But I can’t fault him too much since his heart was in the right place. Sienna Johnson wonders if she’s bit off more than she can chew. She looks like she’s got a pretty good relationship with her brother, Ryder. But now temptation has stepped directly into her path.

As the story goes on I begin to wonder if we will see more of Ryder. Someone else that makes an appearance is Nic. I also wondered what his story was. The good news with that is his story was the first book in this series titled Boyfriend For Hire. More good news is that you don’t need to read it first in order to enjoy Case and Sienna’s story. But what about Ryder?

The author has created some great one-liners that will have you laughing out loud. Just goes to show how much you will be entertained at Case’s expense. But in a way it seems realistic because I could picture someone in his profession doing exactly what Case does here. Of course my brain tried to insert reality by wondering how come law enforcement wasn’t knocking down his door. But then I had to keep reminding it that this is a total work of fiction.

If you’ve enjoyed Ms. Ryan’s work in the past, you’ll find this will be a good addition to your library. It’s light. It’s humorous. It’s got plenty of heat. And it will make you curious as to what this series is about. I’ve come to enjoy reading a story from the point of view of the character. We get more of an understanding as to what they are thinking and feeling. At times, they may even seem as if they are talking directly to us – getting us involved in the scene. Which is what will hook you into what this business is about.
