Logan suppressed a shudder. This weekend was going to be a nightmare. The bunkhouse was going to smell like a fucking sorority. He'd probably end up taking his bedroll out onto the range. He'd rather sleep with the rattlesnakes.

This was a surprisingly sweet, funny and sometimes angsty cowboy romance. Hanna is soon to be wed so her sister Sidney has taken it upon herself to show her what she'll missing. Se takes her to a ranch filled with randy male strippers, in the beginning all we know is th

Hanna Stevens is getting married in a few weeks to a man she doesn't even really like, never mind love. Her fiance, Zack, is CEO of the bank that holds the note on her family's ranch and marrying him will save the ranch from foreclosure, save her parents from moving when her mother's health is not good.

Logan Landry lost a bet and now finds himself "working" for the weekend at his buddy, Cody's ranch... Only, it's not a working ranch, it's more like a strip show with fake cowboys and lusty women

If you are looking for a feel good, happily ever after, second chance, with a good bit of titillating heat then STUD FOR HIRE by Sabrina York will definitely fit the bill.

Hanna Stevens is going to marry someone she has no love for but will do so to help her father keep the ranch. Her sister has other plans as she takes her and some other friends for a bachelorette weekend at the Double S. Ranch. This is a special ranch ... not a completely working ranch and not a dude ranch. Well, it is full of

Wish there were more options then a five star review. This book hit a home run. I was sucked into this book for two days. Sabrina is an excellent writer that knows how to write stories that we all could relate in some way. She wrote a story in which love, obsession and power were viewed from two different perspective one of love and the other of control. It was a powerful book which showed signs of love and very scary out how a men could go above and beyond for be cruel and obsessive. I love the ...more

Who else loves hot cowboys stories? I see a whole lot of virtual hands raising. You really must join me then for a trip to Double S Ranch. Sabrina York has created yet another completely engrossing story that is hot, steamy, suspenseful, and heart warming. Honestly Stud for Hire is a story that is nearly impossible to put down.

Hanna Stevens is that wholesome sweet, innocent girl that will do anything and I do mean anything for her family. She's smart, has a great personality and has a few moves

*ARC from the author and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Hanna Stevens is unhappy to find that her sister Sydney has planned her weekend-long bachelorette party at a stud ranch. She's more unhappy that her future sister-in-law Tibby has invited herself along for the weekend. Hanna's upcoming wedding to Zack Pucey is not something she's looking forward to, mainly because she is not in love with her fiancee. She only agreed to marry Zack because he will take care of the debt that her fa

Some books just leave you drained (in a good way) when you are done reading them. Stud for Hire does just this. The story is smartly written, the characters are well developed which made me so much more invested in the outcome than I may have been if everyone was just written light and fluffy and the sex scenes are sizzling. This book just sucked me in and wouldn't let me go. If you've ever read a book written by Sabrina York you know that her characters all

I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review and here it is: 4.5 stars.

Stud for Hire is the first novel in Sabrina York's Stripped Down series, and she certainly sets the series off to a very good start--who wouldn't enjoy a novel filled with sexy cowboys--although the only actual cowboy in this novel is the hero, Logan Landry. The others are all male strippers, hired by Cody and Cade, two brothers who have turned their Double Silver ranch into the Double Stud ranch, a sexy d

A ‘never-lose’ poker hand did, in fact lose, and Logan is now spending a weekend as a ranch-hand at his best friend’s place. Only problem is the ranch is less ‘working cattle’ than stud farm, complete with bachelorette parties, male strippers and very few rustlers.

Hanna is the bride to be, surprised with a weekend getaway by her very daring sister. Born with a responsible gene in overdrive, she’s keeping a huge secret that no one suspects. Oh – that’s she’s not entirely a blushing bride full of

Hanna and Logan.

Logan has been in love with Hanna since high school. He saved her from almost being raped by the town's poor little rich bully and went through a really rough time afterwards. Hanna didn't remember it had been him, she was so traumatized. Fast forward to Hanna's bachelorette party. Her sister lines up a weekend at a dude ranch...which included some hot strippers. Logan recognized Hanna right away. Serious sparks flew, consequences ensued, feelings were hurt, lives were changed a

Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. I thought it would be a fun romp, but it turned out to have quite a bit of drama when the actual premise was revealed. It seemed to me that there had to be another way for Hanna to save her father's ranch other than to marry a man she didn't love. 

I had trouble connecting with both of the main characters because of all the deception involved. Despite the fact that it's just an initial hookup, Hanna conceals her engagement from Logan. In turn,

#1 in the Stripped Down romance series

Thanks to NetGalley who provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I had my doubts about this one at first since it's based at a ranch that's been converted to a sort of party-central location for bachelorette parties, etc., hiring male strippers as "ranchers." But Logan is a real rancher who has lost a poker bet and has been asked by his friend Cody to fill in. Hanna is the partying bride, although she's not happy about her upcoming

I admit, the cover is what prompted me to pick up the book. I was dazzled by the sexy cowboy with amazing abs. The synopsis had me a bit worried because I have no tolerance for cheater books, but the circumstances surrounding Hanna’s engagement and “relationship” with Zach (or lack thereof) eased my fears. I can’t explain it without giving away spoilers, but I certainly wouldn’t classify this as a “cheater book.”

I had some preconceived notions that this was just going to be a superficial book ab

Stud for Hire was a big surprise for me! It was very sweet and emotional, yet hot and sexy!! Either way, it's a great beginning of a new series!!!

Cody and Cade inherit the Double S ranch. They left the name of it as Double S, but it now stands for Double Stud. It's a dude ranch that females visit for various events.

Don't let my rating deter you from reading this book, it wasn't bad at all, but sadly it really was just okay for me.

Hanna's moral compass was a little mislaid in my eyes and Logan ran hot and cold, from a stuttering, shy man to spanking extraordinaire in the span of a minute. I needed more to believe there were real feelings blooming between them, not just a long-time crush fulfilled or one last fling before marrying out of supposed obligation.

Logan's brothers kind of saved the day and kept me

"Perhaps that was why she didn’t like frolicking with random men, didn’t like casual physical contact. Because of the impact to her soul.”

BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT TO HER SOUL????!!!!!!!! She didn't like casual physical contact, in this case, it was just the inside of a man's arm she touched, because it impacted her soul?! WTF.

This was one hot book!! It was fun to watch Logan and Hanna reconnect.

I really liked Hanna in this book. She wasn't portrayed as mean or anything, however I did feel really bad for Logan a few times. Logan was there for Hanna during one of the worst days of her life and she doesn't remember him. Granted he has changed, but he has been in love with her ever since and for Hanna to not remember him, it hurt my heart.
