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?
Boyfriend for Hire may be one of the most unexpected Kendal Ryan books I’ve read. I came in fully prepared to hate Nic for his life choices, to feel like Elle was a doormat who couldn’t fend for herself in the real world, but I was completely wrong, and I am so happy for that. Boyfriend for Hire was one of the sweetest stories I’ve read in a long time, and I definitely misjudged the tone and tenor of it.
I was most impressed with Nic. He was so much more level-headed and sentimental than I could have ever imagined. To take a sentiment from Elle, he was the perfect boyfriend, straight out of the pages of a romance novel. And, as much as I loved how kind and caring he was with Elle, some of my favorite interactions happened between Nic and one of his clients, Esther. He was so incredibly considerate, and it felt like there were true feelings of concern and companionship between the two of them.
Elle was a little more fickle a character for me, not that I didn’t find great love for her, I just often felt a bit of a disconnect with her, which I’m sure was more because of me than her. I never quite understood why she made some of the decisions she did concerning her career, and a little her past relationship. I would have loved to have had more insight into that part of her life, as I think it would have helped paint a clearer picture of how she’d become the person she was in Boyfriend for Hire.
Boyfriend for Hire was a short, sweet read and I enjoyed every second I spent reading it. Elle and Nic were adorable and seemed to have great chemistry, so I was happy to see them figure out their relationship and the things they were able to overlook and forgive concerning past life choices. Kendall Ryan did a fabulous job with this book, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the other men we met in Boyfriend for Hire.
