Synopsis from Goodreads

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.

Review

Case may come across as a conceited playboy but it is quickly apparent he has donned this persona as a form of armour when he decided to start a male escort service. Case prides himself on his satisfaction guaranteed promise to the point he has been contracted to write a book to give insight to the male species on how to truly satisfy the woman of their choice. Unfortunately, Case has hit a roadblock in the form of a physical rebellion and lack of inspiration. That is until one of the escorts, Ryder, little sister, Sienna, steps in to temporarily act as office manager for the agency and productivity coach for Case.

Sienna is a little straight-laced, to begin with, although her sassy side soon makes an appearance where Case is concerned. Fresh from college and undecided on her future, the role of office manager allows her the time she needs to plan for her future. On the other hand, it would seem fate has already got plans for Sienna, she just isn’t aware of them yet and Case is at the centre of all of them.

There is no denying the chemistry between Case and Sienna even if the circumstances are not conducive to a relationship between the pair. With Case’s escort role, Sienna’s brother and both of their insecurities coming into play; there is a lot for Sienna and Case to work through. Hence, the decision to hook-up rather than catch feelings. Anyone else want to scream TOO LATE, lol

Case’s unusual career aside, it is obvious Case and Sienna bring out the best in each other. It is easier to move past the unconventional nature of Case’s ‘relationships’ when the reasons behind his decision to embark on this endeavour are revealed.

Kendall includes a lovely catch-up with Nic from Boyfriend for Hire included in The Hook-Up Handbook adding depth to the story and proving even escorts can find love 😍
