There are a lot of reasons why we pick a book to read...I am sure there have been all kinds of studies done; academic ones... and the more crass kind, marketing...But whatever the reasons, they are personal to us.

Ryan Ringbloom has a knack with her covers, titles and content. In the two books I have read, Fake Boobs and now Hooker Heels, their covers match perfectly with the titles and story enclosed. She has taped into the perfect visual w

"I can’t promise you he won’t be hurting when I’m done with him.”



Hooker Heels was just an okay read for me, and it was all due to my relationship with the characters. For me Kenna came off as a petty selfish heroine while Zack was too sweet for his own good. This is a me versus the book issue, because I know some of my friends who really enjoyed the book. I might be heartless, because I couldn't sympathize with Kenna at all, my first interaction with her just left a bad ta

Kenna Winston is looking for her next meal ticket when heir to the Knight empire falls into her lap. But Zack Knight isn’t looking for another gold digger and certainly isn’t interested in his own fortune, so Kenna is going to have her work cut out for her.

When Zack begins to stray from the plan, his father steps in to keep him otherwise engaged with the help of Kenna... gold digger turned whore.

This was a quick, enjoyable read that sort of plays along the lines of Pretty Woman, if first, the g

***I was provided a complimentary ARC of this book by the publisher, through Netgalley.com, in exchange for honest feedback.***

This was the first book I've ever read by this author, but it won't be the last. With a title like 'Hooker Heels', I have to admit that I thought I was going to read a much dirtier, smuttier story than what I got. However, I'm not complaining at all. This book may not have been what I was expecting, but it was great!

I was first introduced to Ryan Ringbloom in Fake Boobs, a wonderfully realistic story with the tell tale signs of low self esteem. Hooker Heels fall along those same lines, with some more interesting themes, simply told in a different way. What I love about RB's stories, are the way her female characters are portrayed as anti-heroines. Along with the important themes within the stories. Ryan Ringbloom always creates these flawed female characters that go after the impossible and still come out o ...more

I read Ryan Ringbloom’s previous book, ‘Books Blogs and Reality’, and I really enjoyed it so when I saw this I knew I had to read it.

The way this story started off had me quite intrigued. I think the author does a fabulous job of drawing the reader in. Kenna Winston is a gold digger, to get straight to the point. She’s always used men to provide her with what she needs. And then comes the perfect opportunity for her to earn a bit of cash at a time where she practically has no where to live. But

Hooker Heels is a New Adult Standalone Romance from author Ryan Ringbloom told from the dual point of views of main characters, Zackary and Kenna.

While this book does and can in fact be read as a total standalone, you also get a little bit of Kenna in the book featuring her best friend Tori, titled Fake Boobs.

Because I had the luxury of reading that book befo

When I read the blurb, I was thinking this was just going to be some average cliche love story. There were some moments where it was a bit predictable... BUT I ended up LOVING it!!! I got attached with Kenna and Zach almost immediately.

3.5 Redeeming stars

I put off reading this book for ages because I had let the reviews influence me. When I started I could see why some of the reviews weren't great. Kenna wasn't likeable and had a lot of issues and Zack was just so blah. I could see why they were both like that but for a while the whole book seemed a bit stunted.

There are books and then there are books. The ones that sit and linger with you long after you've read them. Books that no matter how busy you get with daily life, they still stick with you. Hooker Heels is one of the books. Raw, intense and filled with anguish and angst, this phenomenal author Ryan Ringbloom has brought one of the falls best books to the table. What makes this book so memorable are the characters that Ringbloom brings forward. Kenna, a girl taught at a young age that she's wort ...more

OMG... I loved loved LOVEEEEEEED this book. It is soooo good; I read it all in one sitting. When I first started, I disliked Kenna just a tad bit. I thought she was a selfish, conniving B%$&@, but as I got to know her, she truly won me over. She is just a victim who grew up in a screwed up home and despite it, she grew to be a headstrong woman who I think would be one of my BFF's had I known her in real life. Zack on the other hand *swoon* - he is all that and then some. I absolutely adored him. ...more

Kenna is a gold digger in this story. Zachary isn't having it.
Kenna has to do alot of work for this to work out.
Love and Choices, I was happy with the flow
I will not go into the story and post spoilers. It was a quick read and I did enjoy it.
Some was a bit predictable but I didn't mind.
I say go for it, it's definitely an enjoyable read.

Life was simple for Kenna, and she liked it that way.
She had mastered two things in her life to make sure that she had what she needed with consummate ease… had mastered money and men and one didn’t go without the other – a life lesson passed on very early in life from her mother.
But while this is all good and well in theory it doesn’t always pan out in practice, because kicking her heels is not something that Kenna enjoys, so when Tariq, gives her a call and asks her pay him a visit, she is mor

I loved this book. It has everything. Drama, love, steamy hot sex.

Zachary is a chef and his father is a billionaire which makes Zachary unhappy because he doesn't know if people likes him or his money.

Kenna is a whore, really, which made me uncomfortable at beginning because,for me, unless you are trying to save someone's life, whoring herself is unacceptable. She had problems? Yes, but not enough to accept this life. She just did not had good

Hooker Heels is a standalone contemporary romance from Ryan Ringbloom and is my first ever read from this author.

Kenna Winston you are going to hate her and want to be her at points. Confusing .. you bet. She knows money and she knows men but the biggest thing she plays one for the other. Kenna is on her last romp that doesn’t go as planned when her “brother” Tariq calls her with a proposition. Tariq works for a billionaire who owns hotels and fancy restaurants. Kenna has nothing to lose so … why not. You wont believe what his proposition is …

This book was wonderfully written. The character build was just perfect. Story line was very believable and well thought out. Kenna and Zack meet in the most unconventional ways, and could end in total disaster. The author put such a spin on it that was so heart felt, and a perfect way to salvage the relationship. Kenna is introduced as pretty much a gold digging escort in denial. She gets through life jumping

I would like to start off saying I got this book as an arc for a honest review. I was deeply interested in this book after I read the description. Kenna is a girl who is used to wrapping men around her finger. She was taught at a young age that her worth revolved around her looks. Zachary was the son of a greedy billionaire who was tired of his father trying to mold him in his image. Zachary wanted to feed the whole world... For free. You would think that these two would not work. I will admit t ...more

Ryan Ringbloom strikes again with another amazing story. I had the pleasure of reading this while on holidays sitting by the pool and it had everything I needed to pass away the hours. With just the right amount of angst, sexual tension, drama, hot hot sex, and of course a hot guy to fall in love with this book had everything.
I even Loved the ott bitchy female that everyone likes to hate.

Favorite Quotes:

“‘I know that isn’t exactly the thing a guy wants to hear but I just need you to know, you’re not getting an untouched flower or anything.’ He wasn’t getting a flower at all, more like a weed.”

My Review:

I love Ryan Ringbloom’s work, but I struggled with this one, the heroine was hard for me to like. I had to trust that Ms. Ringbloom would get me there, and thankfully, she did. As always, the writing was well done, emotive, and insightful. Of course the problem I am having now is

I've only read a handful NA, but this is my most liked among all. Yes, I do like this more than Ugly Love and Fallen Too Far.

The story opens from little bit from the leading man, Zachary Knight. How he is the typical kind and rich guy who denies his wealth. A genuine modesty he has. Then a few pages in, we have our leading lady, Kenna WInston, the girl who sells her body to live in the world. The author made sure how we know our characters before everyth

I’m a Ryan Ringbloom fan dude. There I said it.
She writes books for peeps like me, with characters that I can get into. She’s been doing it for a year but I’m pretty sure this is my favorite one.

She was hired to make sure he stayed on track with the new restaurant about to open. She needed to do whatever it takes without falling in love. Because when time is up, she has to walk away at a moments notice. He just wanted to get away from his father. Do something more meaningful with his life and be with someone who didn't want him for his money. He despised the limelight.

This was an ok book. Honestly, in my opinion, it's a topic that has been used too much. The prostitute that's hired to e

Then on her way home from her best friend Tori's wedding, Kenna gets familiar with a man and who mistakes her after a wonderful night of sex as a hooker. This leaves her wondering about herself when she gets a call from her old step-sibling Tariq who has a job offer for her as his boss needs a companion for his son Zackary Knight.

I received a free copy of this novel from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

First off, although this is labelled as YA/NA I would hesitate to put it in that category and would say it was more contemporary romance.

This book really surprised me (in a good way), there were several avenues I thought it would go in but it went in totally different ways.

Kenna is a good time girl, her entire adult life she has used men to get what she wants, presents, holidays, drinks - you name it. Sadly, at th

This book was totally not what I was expecting! A totally crazy Cinderella story that just took so many crazy twists, and turns that really thrwos the reader for a loop when they least expect it. I absolutely loved the passion between Kenna and Zachary. LOVED. IT. I wasn't really sure what to think of this book going in; it sounded interesting, and it captured my interest enough that I devoured it in a day. Anyways, onwards with this really, really well-written story that captured my heart!

Kenna Winston knew two things well, money and men. She used her good looks from the time she was a teenager to get things she wanted from men. Her mother taught her that. Her life was going no where fast when her step brother, Tariq called her and ask her to come see him about a good proposition he had for her. He did work for a billionaire who owned hotels and fancy eating establishments . Zachery Knight was a well known chef and his father was opening him his own place. It was very fancy but t ...more

Kenna is desperate. Living for her next meal, she will do whatever it takes to have some semblance of a life and if that means hooking up with a rich guy for a night or two for money she'll do it. When her step-brother of sorts offers her an amazing opportunity she can hardly refuse. All she has to do is keep Zachary Knight happy and if that means sleeping with him then she'll do it - the money is that good. But there are rules. She can only spend 4 hours a day with him, she can't fall for him a ...more

I've never read anything by Ryan Ringbloom before so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was given an arc in exchange for an honest review. I will say that Kenna and Zackary were an adorable couple and I enjoyed the book.. for the most part. Of course there were a few things that didn't bode well with me, but overall it was satisfactory.

Things I liked:
- I liked the relationship and how slow the build-up was.
- I liked the intimate moments because it was hot especially the first time.
