I don’t want to know his full name.
I don’t even want his phone number.
In fact, the only thing I want from Jude is the filthy hot sex the masterful hung stud delivers on a weekly basis.
He’s way too young for me . . . and much too good at fulfilling my every dirty desire.
He definitely isn’t supposed to show up one morning on my doorstep wi

My Review:

Oh, my… This couple was deliciously naughty and with explosive sensual chemistry, I felt sorry for the ladies working housekeeping in the hotel they frequented as I’m sure their room required steam cleaning and their linens could only be tossed upon their exit. The writing was salaciously scandalous and occasionally went a bit past my comfort zone for eewwww with the body fluids, while their activities were pun

I received this book as an ARC from the talented Rie Warren. What an awesome way to spend my day as to read this book! First, many may not know, but I do not typically care for the female characters in books. Cady however, was wonderful. Strong woman, with a career, a life, a family...she was cracked but not broken. She wasn't a 20 something that didn't' have it together. She was great.
Jude...oh, alpha sexy! Talk about perfection...has a loyalty and love for family AND is smoking hot!! I'll take

3.5 stars - I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a book for exhausted single mums everywhere. True - it is a completely implausible fantasy read - but it does kinda tick off about a dozen mid life fantasies in a single read. Anonymous hook-up with a hot younger man? Gorgeous manny who takes over domestic duties? Being pursued by a sexy professional sportsman? The relationship between Cady and Jude isn’t just a cliche - it is the embodiment of every working

I will start this by saying I was lucky enough to be given an ARC from the author.

I read this book in ONE DAY. I really, really liked it. the characters are well written and funny. I found myself engrossed in the love story and truly rooting for them.

One minor thing that I super loved is that Cady is a partner in a woman-run law firm. That little detail filled my paralegal heart with joy.

Cady is such a complex character, with layers and layers of personality to dig through.

3.5*s of fun fantasy romance

This is a fun story, with the mysterious start, the unexpected meeting and the mission to make it permanent. I enjoy Ms Warren's style, which is usually no holds barred, with plenty of humour, super hot encounters and larger than life characters. In this book we also have the benefit of the children who are perfect at adding the aww, as well as the giggles.

I think this is perfect escapism, es

It was an interesting way for Cady and Jude to meet, by having a hook up once a week with no questions or personal information exchange. This was great for Cady since she was an independent, hardworking, single mother of three and divorce under her belt. By the hook up with Jude she could forget her reality and have the me time of being pleasure by very talented Jude and not worry about any strings attached. It all came crashing down when Jude shows up on her front porch one morning while she wa ...more

What an interesting plot line!!! I loved the way they meet. Hot younger man, sexy mature woman. No last names exchanged - just hot sex once a week. Annnnd then we get a glimpse of her real life. Cady is a single mom of 3 boys and a successful divorce attorney looking for a nanny to help her with her boys. Who shows up at her door but her weekly hook up, Jude - sent by her son's football coach. You have the typical boy shenanigans, frazzled mom and a man who gets along great with her boys. C

Why Him is the first book in the Mistaken Identities series.

Cady is just coming out of a divorce. She has custody of her three teenage boys whose lives have been interrupted enough but she still has needs. What happens as a chance meeting at a bar turns into a regular Thursday night thing. There were no names exchanged, no personal details shared just a night of passion.

Cady was a wonderful, Strong woman, with a career, a life, and a family. She was a wonderful character who I could completely get behind and want to be friends with.

I enjoyed the book, but Cady's constant issue with Jude's age got to be really old, really quick. She's a self-confident woman, knows what she wants and goes for it. Except she thinks that Jude at 26 doesn't know what he wants.

Jude is patient as any saint. He has strong feelings for Cady and does his best to show her just how much she means to him. He adores Cady and her children,and Jude has demonstrated nothing b

HOLY SMOKES Rie Warren is back and with a vengeance!

Is it hot in here? No? Just me? Damn I think I need an ice cold shower, Why Him? is hotter than hot!

Why Him? is oh so sexy and erotic. Ms. Warren certainly knows how to craft a ridiculously dirty and contemporary story.

As usual Rie Warren puts her own unique stamp on a an over utilized trope... the May-December, older woman-younger man... whatever you want to call it trope is usually campy and predictable but Ms. Warren has crafted a distinct

Goodness gracious, this book jumps right into pure hotness. Definitely keep a fan handy! Or a toy!
Cady is a divorcee with two kids. She and her ex-husband are both divorce attorneys, but she's better. All her time is spent working or with her kids. One night she's out having a drink when a stranger hits on her and all of her normal brush-offs don't seem to work, which makes her do something completely out of the 27 every Thurs

It's really funny that being an older woman who wouldn't kick a younger man out of her bed, I don't normally get into the older woman/younger man books, but I guess I just hadn't read the right one yet. Should have known that the extremely amazing Rie Warren would have me devouring on that she wrote, as Why Him? totally had me reading it in less than 2 hours. It all starts when Cady has a Thursday night hook up with a younger man who she met at a bar, and this night is so hot, that they set the ...more

I really enjoyed Stevie and Kane. They had this chemistry that I get from their first meeting and let bed the struggle that they had to keep things business. Stevie was the yang to Kane’s ying and the banter between the two was great. I’m really hoping that there will be a book about Stevie’s brother and best friend. I see something brewing there. The other secondary characters really helped the story progress and added a great dynamic and witty banter to the story.

Rie Warren continues writing books that I fall in love with after another. This is the first book in her Mistaken Identities series. I was so into it that I read it in one afternoon.

Cady is newly divorced and she’s the mother of three active teenage boys. She’s a mother first and lawyer second. Cady rarely does anything for herself. Until Jude walked into her life.

She gave Jude a fake name and nothing else except her body. They meet once a week and they loose th

I Voluntarily Reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book!

This was a first read by this author. First and foremost. The title ahould have been Room 27. But that is just my opinion. I actually really enjoyed the book. I kind of was looking for a bigger moment, but it was fine the way it ended up. I fell in love with Jude. He was sexy, broody and alpha caveman over Cady. I loved how he took a genuine interest in Cady's boys and he beought humor aling with heat. Cady happened to be really stubbo

Luckily for me Ms. Warren gave me a copy to read and I’m so glad she did. Jude, oh my gosh that man is totally precious, and hot and funny and so sexy...he’s the total package. He hooks up with “Catherine” for a standing night of pure sex each week. Catherine doesn’t do last names or want to know anything about him or hi ...more

If you are in the market for a very hot, steamy read, look no further than Why Him by Rie Warren. A May December romance that hooked me right from the start. Cady was not looking for romance or a relationship, been there, done that as they say. She was looking to scratch that itch. Jude was younger and seemed to know his way around. He was just what the doctor ordered and was most likely just looking for a steamy encounter as well. The results of this chance encounter will knock your socks off. ...more

This is a wonderfully written story about a younger man / older woman scenario. These two have a once a week arrangement, where no names are exchanged, and no strings attached. That is until their worlds collide when Cade is looking for a nanny and Jude arrives at the door. This talented author has written a fantastic storyline, which is emotional, humorous, and thoroughly entertaining. I cannot wait to read more in this captivating series, and highly recommend this talented authors’ work for al ...more
Hot and steamy with some great characters bringing the heat and a lot of laugh out loud craziness! Although I enjoyed the chemistry between Jude and Cady, there is a thin line between erotic and disgusting. The over the top, graphic descriptions of the constant exchange of bodily fluids soon became quite queasy. It's a shame because between Jude's father and Cady's sons and her ex-husband, this story was really, really good!

Why Him is one hell of a steamy, hot book! The premise of the story sounded intriguing and it is definitely was worth reading!
Anonymous hook up, no strings attached, but when their worlds collide...
Jude and Cady had amazing chemistry even if she wasn’t willing to let him completely in. He is a great guy, good with her kids but all she can focus on is why would a younger hot guy want an older women with three kids? Jude had his work cut out for him trying to convince her otherwise.

Oh my goodness..... what a book. This is definitely one that you will want to read alone and should I say under the covers..... ooops.... Anyway this is a well written story about a lot of great sex and the woman who is getting it. I do not want to give away the details but I will say, if you like this type of genre, you will LOVE this book.

5 out of 5

Thanks to goodreads for allowing me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

Rie Warren has once again proven why she is one of my favorite authors! Why Him? had me fanning myself with the first page and hooked from the first word. Jude and Cady had incredible chemistry and throw in Cady's three sons and this book was not only hot, but had me laughing out loud and so completely entertained that I did not want it to end! Why Him? is a definite must read and perfect start to Rie Warren's new Mistaken Identity series.

Jude and Cady have a standing no strings, no details arrangement every Thursday that leaves them both sexually satisfied. When fate intervened and reality intrudes, their arrangement gets turned upside down.
I just enjoyed the dialogue and banter between all the characters. Cady’s boys had me laughing out loud. Sex scenes are hot hot! All in all a fun, quick, dirty read.
