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.

I was very intrigued with the premise of this book as soon as I saw the blurb. I love books that deal with best friend's siblings and I wanted to see how that would play into this story. Overall, I did enjoy it.

I liked Sienna. I thought she was smart and fun. I'm a dancer, and a curvy one at that, so I liked getting to read about someone so relatable to me personally. I could understand her insecurities, her hopes and dreams. I did like her interactions with Case in the workplace; I thought that portion was characterized very well. Sometimes I forgot how young she was but I think the Author did a good job in making that age realistic.

I liked Case, but it did take me a little bit to warm up to him. He's gruff and stressed-which hey, what person isn't these days-but there was something just holding me back from him a bit. He did win me over and I was rooting for him to make things work with Sienna.

These two had chemistry, but neither wanted to act on it initially. I think that might have been part of my hesitancy connecting the two of them together, but once they kissed I was all in. I liked seeing them connect, both in and out of the bedroom, and I did believe in their connection.

The pacing of the book was good, and the writing was strong. I wasn't sure how these two were going to fit together, but they really did. I enjoyed this title overall and would recommend it.

This one starts off a little slower than other titles, but not necessarily in a bad way. There was a lot of this story in the setting, in who they were to one another before they even meet, and it gave it depth. I think we have all had that job that talking about is a little awkward, although I think for most of us, it's in a pie shop or wearing an awful uniform while selling hot dogs in a mall.

Sienna and Case are coworkers...well, he's her boss. Who just happens to be a male escort writing a book about sex who needs some additional help in the office, and with organizing his book.

It's a fabulous and fun set up. And, for me it mostly worked...although there definitely were some times when I felt the chemistry wasn't as strong between them as other parts in the book, I definitely felt the connection overall and I enjoyed this title.

I recommend this title.
