It’s been some time since Kendall Ryan’s romances have had a but of drama. Generally filled with light hearted romance, her stories are quick afternoon walks through HEAs. Boyfriend for Hire is no different except it holds a note of mystery and “what if” when our hero harbors a secret from the heroine. Hired by her new sister-in-law as a date, Nic is enraptured from the moment he meets Elle. Sweet and caring, he falls for her silly nature and killer curves in just one weekend. But when Elle wants to take it beyond their wedding date night, Nic has a hard time separating work from love. But each moment he spends with Elle brings them closer and closer and the truth is getting harder to reveal. Nic is terrified that Elle can never accept his past and the reason they met in the first place.
Elle is head over heels with Nic despite that fact that he seems to be holding something back. After a lovely night with him and her brother’s wedding, she’s convinced there’s something more there. As they spend more time together, she’s convinced he’s a romance hero come to life. Sweet, charming, and always prepared to take care of her. But every time they get close he backs off; never kissing her, then never letting her touch him. But once the clothes come off, the chemistry explodes. Not only do these two support each other, they’ve got bedroom skills like pros (hint hint). But a cataclysmic reveal threatens all the work they’ve put in to one another.
I was on the edge of my seat this entire novel! I wanted to know more about Nic and his….bedroom prowess; but beyond that the idea of male escorts is just this side of taboo and naughty. I couldn’t figure out just how Elle would find out Nic’s secret and Kendall couldn’t have surprised me more. I wanted these two to have that HEA so badly and I wasn’t sure how they would navigate the truth. Layered and complex, this romance had be gripping my kindle wondering what would come next: a kiss or the truth? Add this to your TBR if you love HEAs with just a touch of drama to keep you guessing!
