She’s his wet dream. Too bad he’s going to marry another…

I’m Samantha Kent--owner of a house that I share with four roomies. Luck hasn’t been on my side lately with a ruined car, a novel that isn’t selling, and no money in my pockets. All in all, the worst timing for Mother Nature to hit West Palm Beach with the storm of the century and destroy my beautiful garden.

I received an eARC of Hire Me for an honest review.

I just want to say that I thought that I was in a reading slump because I didn't seem to be able to read a short book for a week...and then I started this one and read it in a few hours. It is a novella and it is short but still it got me through my reading difficulties of the week and I am grateful.

Every time I start an Elodie Colt book I have really high expectations and I haven't been disappointed so far. And I'm gla

honest review. Hire Me Elodie Colt

Elodie girl why do you always do this to me, I'm seriously fangirling I honestly have no idea how you do it but I want to say thank you for doing it. i love you so much girl!

One thing I love and have noticed with all of your books is you create the most powerful female lead characters, ones who aren't afraid to bend the rules, take a different direction, do what they believe is right. I first noticed this when I read your first book in blood We Trust. She

Omg first to say it's I love it! This book really surprised me, When I thought I knew what was going to happen next I receive a "no no, you don't have any idea" especially on the hot scenes. I was laughing most of the time, more when he dare her to a sassy thing and when he find out her secret. Matthew sexy Matthew, I was like what else you need to realize that she is the woman of your life?!

Elodie Colt’s delightful novella Hire Me shows even adults aren’t above behaving like teenagers when it comes to love.

Samantha Kent and Matthew Miller star as the main characters in your typical boy/girl-next-door story; though apparent they’ll fall for each other, readers will follow along willfully until the awaited moment happens. The four roommates provide a funny supporting cast, and the flip between points of view provides an entertaining read. The erotic scenes fluttered throughout add t

Hire Me: it was a fantastic story Hot men tough woman! I loved how it was written. It was very hot hot hot! I loved how each roommate was totally different but we're willing to help each other. I loved that they lived on the beach. I loved that Matt was turned on by Sam but knew it was wrong. He was just a true blooded American I loved that how this story.

This story I read in one day, I was so into it! It wasn't the usual kind of book that I read but it was really refreshing. What intrigued me, in addition to the great storyline, was the author's ability to write in first person, from two different points of view. I do not remember ever having seen such a thing, but it worked, and the author did it well. The two points of view added so much to the storyline by allowing the reader to feel what both people were feeling, even though it wasn't in the ...more

This is the first book I've read by Elodie and I loved it! Samantha has the worst luck but has a awesome go with the flow attitude. This is a slow passionate love story with a friendship. Hope this book continues as a series with stories on her roommates! ...more

Okay, so before I start my review, I of course have to say thank you to Elodie Colt. I am honored to have had the opportunity to read and review your book before it's release. As mentioned earlier, you have a fan forever!

Now to my review!

Hire Me is amazing! It starts off with Samantha who seems to have the worst of luck. I mean, all she wants to do is write and make money, but life is not trying to hear it. I guess the storm that hits her house is a bad and good thing, bad because it ruins her c

Oh gosh where do I start.... I loved this book from the start it pulls you in without you realising it and by the time you look up you've nearly finished and the day had gone! It's a true romance with added spice. I cried and laughed whilst reading it and was constantly asked if I was okay!
You don't expect a lot of the things that happen especially the hot scenes that start off as Samantha's fantasi

However, if you have a character, like Matt, who seems decent, mostly honest, and as if he's struggling with some personal choices, it is a bit different. Sam is sweet and a bit misguided, but you want them to find their way and I think that equals some good writing. Even if they don't find their way together, you want them to get some happiness. I obviously won't give too much away, but I did enjoy the sexual tension, and was happy with the ending.

Hire Me is my first book by Elodie Colt, so I didn't know what to expect. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. Colt has delivered a book that is well-written. The characters are entertaining and lovable. Samantha is an author. Matthew is an orchard owner helping Samantha's neighbor with her garden...and his girlfriend is Samantha's neighbor's daughter. Samantha and Mathew's story is loaded with drama, humor and smoking hot sex. Hire Me is a fun book to re ...more

I received an advance copy of Hire Me (The Heed Me Novellas Book 1) in exchange for an honest and voluntary review, which I'm very happy to supply. I found Hire Me to be easy to "get into". I was caught up in the story right away. There wasn't any of that feeling of "well, let me just keep reading, and maybe the story will improve and grab my attention" - the way you get with some books. I was interested from page 1. I enjoyed the characters; their personalities were well developed and deftly co ...more

I enjoyed this, for the most part. It was well-written, the terms used were researched properly. The characters were interesting and original. The sex scenes were written just right and they were pretty arousing hahaha. I just thought the romance progressed a little too fast, but considering it was a novella, I suppose it was apt. I also didn't really like the way Matthew talked about Sam at certain parts, but that was all. I'm looking forward to reading the next instalme

I liked this book. The writing is descriptive and well written. The characters flawed but they journey towards a HEA. I don't particularly like the H/h actions but again the reader is making this journey with the characters as they muddle through the messes they make. You know the characters are developed when the reader loves or hates the characters. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review. ...more

This is a well written book with strong characters and an interesting story line. The author does a great job developing the story and moving it quickly and smoothly. She gives Samantha and Matthew a hot sizzling chemistry , adds enough supporting characters to help bring the story around and delivers an entertaining book I enjoyed reading.

Undeniably hot neighborly attraction, real and right.

I received an Advance Reader Copy for Hire Me written by Elodie Colt and voluntarily reviewed this book. Samantha Kent could really use a good tipping of luck onto her lap right about now. She is a struggling Indie author with a house full of girls...and she has had no man in sight for a few very long and lonely months. And that is merely one of the items on her "Karma-is-SO-working-against-me-right-now" lis

I have loved all of Elodie's books and this was no different!
Sure it's a novella, but believe me you won't feel short changed, nor will you feel the book is rushed.
The characters are all likeable, well...except one, but then that would be giving something away, and i don't do spoilers lol.
With humour, heart break and super hot sex, this is one you will definitely want to read!!
