This story is short, fast paced and festive. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. This book is the first book of Luke Prescott’s that I have read. I needn’t have worried though. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters likeable and the story enjoyable. I liked Addilyn. I hated how judgemental her family was. I hated that she felt like she had to hire a fake boyfriend to get them off of her back. That being said, I liked Nate. I liked him and Addilyn together. My ...more

5 Stars to Hired For The Holidays by Luke Prescott.

What a precious, sweet and sexy story. I loved it! To say I was excited when this surprise was released is an understatement. I am a fan of this author and I love Christmas romances. Put the two together and it's like Christmas morning for me. In addition, I love the trope of hired boyfriend/girlfriend. I admit that even though this trope is predictable in it's happily ever after, Hired For The Holidays had everything I look for in a book.

**FYI, this story isn't the 100+ pages it's listed as. It actually ends at the 46% mark on my Kindle.

This was a very good Christmas romance. I liked both Nate and Addilyn and enjoyed their story. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'll probably try more of his work in the future.

Addilyn is a nurse that is successful and happy with her life...even without a man in it.

Nate is a good guy that works as a hired escort. He's very good at playing the

Hired for the Holidays was such a cute, fun holiday read! I read it in one sitting because I just didn't want to put it down. Luke Prescott definitely has the gift to put great love stories to paper with such unique storylines and amazing characters that are extremely well written.

The story revolves around Addilyn who is a single and successful nurse who loves every minute of her lifestyle and feels she doesn't need a man or a relationship to make her happy. Her family on the other hand does no

I bought this Christmas story because I loved the magical year Luke has had this year with his writing skills. He doesn’t disappoint with this short sweet story.
Addilyn loves her family but, they drive her crazy, especially her mother. She constantly nags her about being single. This year she decides to pay for a date, unfortunately for Nate it will last two weeks!
Nate has been helping women by being the perfect date for special occasions. He is a drool worthy hottie. I loved the chemistry betwe

A short sweet Christmas story

Addilynn has to go home for Christmas and is tired of the pressure from her family, because she is 30 and single by choice (not. Bad one). Along comes Nate (via Google) you will have to read the book to get the rest. But, the chemistry between these two is hot from the moment they meet. Her family is the all American family. I felt like I was walking into my mom’s house. I loved this story. It was short but perfect. Didn’t feel rushed even though everything moved fa

The perfect Christmas gift! Short, sweet and HOT!

Addilyn needs a boyfriend! Going home for the holiday without one is just too much to even imagine. Her parents treat her like an old maid! 30 and not married..oh my! She’s beautiful, independent and works at a job she loves. She doesn’t need a man to take care of her.
Addie contacts Nate Wheeler, boyfriend for hire. Two weeks together with her family.

Hired for the Holidays is a short story on finding love unexpectedly at Christmas. Addilyn Mitchell is going home for the holidays but she doesn't want to go home alone for fear of being judged by her family for choosing to follow her career rather than finding a man to settle down with, and Nate Wheeler is the just the guy to hire to take home to play the part of Addilyn's boyfriend. This is a fast paced story but without the feeling of being rushed, it does end at 50% but then Luke Prescott ha ...more

REALLY NICE STORY!!!!

Enjoyed this book immensely. A sweet and steamy short story that will makes you smile and feel good. It was interesting to me that some profound and very true pieces of relationship information was imparted near the end of the book that we all could take heed of in real life! That was that relationships are messy and that lack of honest communication can easily cause unexpected and unrealized difficulties. I am glad I came across this book by Lukd, it was indeed a very nice

Surprised and impressed!

This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I can’t say I was disappointed! Well written and caught my attention from the first chapter! I’m impressed! I loved Addilyn from the beginning and fell in love with Nate instantly! It’s nice to read about a woman going after her man, for a change, and not the other way around. Love love loved this book!

You really outdid yourself with this one. It was a wonderful way to bring the holiday season for circle le and a happy ending for the year. So might say it's the perfect love story. This story is simply amazing and wonderful. Addie and Nate are the best way to make a holiday merry and bright and I can't wait to see what you bring us next. This was worth the read and I'd like to read about this family. They just give us hope. Congratulations on another excellent read giving a HEA.  5/5 stars.

I can't express how much I loved this book! It's one of those, when you finish, you just sighhhhhhhhhhhh! No Stuck up Princess, or Arrogant Butt holes here. Just 2 nice people who make a business transaction, that becomes so much more! Factor in a really out of control family, for some added fun and you have one terrific story!

Another great book with a wonderful couple that I easily wanted to see get together from the beginning! They were both so sweet and deserved a happy ending. Another super steamy quick read from one of my new one-click authors plus it took place around Christmas time so it gets you in the spirit. :)

Simple and perfect!

A wonderful little Christmas Novella just in time for the holidays. No one likes to be alone at Christmas, for some it's even worse. That's what this story is about. It's fun, flirty and sexy. All thinks Luke Prescott does so well! It was a perfect read during this busy season!!

Hired for the Holidays

This is a novella. The story is quite good. Great Christmas read.

Book 2. I quit reading it five minutes in. Horrible. The characters attitudes turned me off and I thought. No way am I reading this.

Giving it a 4 because book #1 was good.

Boyfriend for Hire

It was a cute, but steamy Christmas novella. This tells the story of what you do when your family is convinced you need a man. My biggest complaint was the story stopped at 51% and the test was filled. Entertaining story though.

Even Escorts Fall in Love

Another hot, sexy story by Luke, especially the scene in the Chevelle, OMG! It is so nice to have a classic muscle car in a story instead of the new "Jag" or "Benz".

Thanks for the Christmas story.

Luke Prescott grew up in New York, where he still lives today. He likes to fish, work on his Jeep and cheer on the best damn team in the NFL, the Giants. He spends his days getting his hands dirty and his nights using his dirty mind.

Writing is a new-found interest for him. Realizing how sexy the written word can be. His debut panty soaking novel is coming soon.
