Review: Hooker by Brooke Blaine

Series:  L.A. Liaisons book #2

Whoever said singles were missing out by not finding true love and getting married before the age of thirty had never experienced the sheer pleasure of nightly romantic comedy viewings in their underwear while eating one of Licked’s famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes. Because life just doesn’t get better than that.

At least, it doesn’t for Shayne Callahan. It didn’t take more than a handful of broken hearts after college to solidify that she was better at pairing up those around her than herself. As a matchmaker at the elite HLS—Hook, Line, & Sinker Matchmaking Company—in the City of Angels, she has a knack for finding the other halves of even the most eccentric clients:

Sugar daddy with a foot fetish? Gross, but no problem.
A severe case of nudophobia? Match made before lunch.

But even the most happily independent of women can find their best-laid plans screeching to a halt when they meet that guy. For Shayne, that guy comes in the form of boyishly handsome, suspender-lovin’, dimple-poppin’ Nate Ryan on a pantsless (we’ll get to that later) Metro ride.

Of course, relationships can never be easy. Before the destined lovers can ride off into the sunset, they must overcome a power-hungry and sexual-punning boss, a celebrity scandal and cover-up, and let’s not forget Shayne’s dreadful foot-in-mouth disease—with which there can never be a happily ever after.

Will fate throw Shayne a freakin’ bone? Or will she be destined to live out her life as sexy(ish), single(ish), and L.A.’s finest Hooker (upper)?  

 

Thoughts:

So many things to love about this book:

-You could be best friends with these girls. Road trips and spiked coffee? Sign me up!!

-I love that the age difference wasn’t harped on or made the central focus. 

-I got to see just enough of my book 1 favorites, Ryleigh and Hunter. 

-Brooke Blaine’s writing style is so casual and easy to follow she draws you in and you cannot stop yourself from turning the pages. What a great escape from reality she provides for a few hours!

 

The Ace vs Shayne vs Nate connection was like a train wreck fixing to happen and yet you could not look away!! Our poor beautiful redheaded Aussie! Her heart was in the right place! And oh man that epilogue! My heart…. Sigh… So sweet and romantic! Nate for the win!!

I see a future Paige and Dawson book!! And what exactly does Quinn do for a living…  I CANNOT WAIT TO FIND OUT!!
