Listening to this book was a fun experience. It was like The Wedding Date meets Crazy Stupid Love, and I adored it completely.

Elle was adorably funny and very relatable given the circumstances. I enjoyed her a lot.

Nick was perfect. Maybe a little too perfect but hey, I won’t be complaining if someone like him shows up in my life. I particularly like how, when he realized his feelings for Elle, he was like “well, fuck, I am in love now so I’d better clean up my act now” even when he did not kno

Holy Hell!

Auto pilot writing at its best. It feels like a computer spat this one out. None dimensional characters with boring situations in a boring world. All the 5 stars reviewers must have slept walk through this or been paid!

This was BORING!!!! No offense but...REALLY? I dont want to be rude or insult the hard work and hours one puts into crafting stories that leave us swooning. But... no offense Kendall, this was plastic. I sometimes wonder if popular writers hire other writers to keep the

I honestly love the male escort trope and that was my favorite part of this book. I think it's the fact that the heroes with this trope are always super charming and know how to treat women that makes it such a fun trope. The beginning of this book was super fun and I was very intrigued by Nic. I just wish there was a little more development in this book because the end sorta left me wanting more. The author would do this thing where she would state something along the lines of "the conversation ...more

A sexy and sweet romantic treat from the queen of SWOONY ROMANCE! 𝐁𝐨𝐲𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐇𝐢𝐫𝐞 by Kendall Ryan hit all the right spots! It made me laugh, made me swoon, made me blush and more importantly…it left me with a craving for more of her words! Be prepared to fall quick and fall hard for Nic and Elle.

I went ahead, and read this book. I am not familiar with this author, but I saw her comment on another post about the hero since I prob would have passed bc its just too icky to me that he is an escort. I dont like "manwhore" type heros, but I do appreciate if an author chooses to delve deeper into that lifestyle as a problem, rather than have him revel in it, so I decided to see what kind of introspection the book had in it.

Nic has been an escort for six years, he makes a lot of money, he likes

Boyfriend for hire is the first book in the Escorts, Inc series by Kendall Ryan. It is Nic and Elle’s story. Nic is an escort. He is hired by Elle’s best friend and future sister in law Christine to accompany her to her wedding to Elle’s brother. Elle’s jerk of an ex was going to be there with his new girlfriend. They both got more than they bargained for, but can Elle forgive and trust him when she finds out the truth?...

I love everything Kendall writes. It's amazing that the amount of books she has written there all so different and all equally good. I love the concept of this book. I liked that it flowed and she excepted him so well. The passion was steamy and hot and the ending with wonderful.

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

I rarely run into a Kendall Ryan book that doesn't hook me in immediately and Boyfriend for Hire was no exception. While you may wonder how the author will make it work by having the hero be a male escort, just trust her, she knows what she's doing!

Elle has just gone through a really tough breakup and unfortunately she's going to have to see the ex and his new girlfriend at her brother's wedding. With her ex being

Boyfriend for Hire was entirely sexy, funny and utterly swoony! I actually missed the light and fluffy, yet sizzling romances we get from Kendall Ryan!

“You showed me that sex is more than just a transaction. You showed me what love felt like and it’s been missing from my life for so long.”


Nic was undoubtedly the star of this book for me. He’s just the melt-your-panties kind of character you’d long for in a dreamy book boyfriend. I mean, I’ve read my fair share of romance novels with

3-3.5 stars. I liked this but didn’t love it. It was a short and sexy read that had any interesting plot but nothing about it was super amazing or life-changing for me. It was fun, but I didn’t take much out of it.

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

I was quite happy to start a new book from Kendall Ryan. I always find myself following her stories like an addict.

Elle is definitely the kind of character that you can easily identify with with all of her body insecurities; I know for one that I could totally relate to her. But more than that, you can see that her meeting with Nic, you can see her gaining more of the confidence she lacked before.

Nic is a refreshing kind of guy to be honest. His job ma

OMG! This book was so sweet, romantic and an absolute delight to read! I smiled. I laughed. I cried. Boyfriend For Hire left me with all of the feels. This was only my first read by Kendall Ryan, but if they all make me feel this way, she may have found herself a new fan.

Elle has just gone through a nasty breakup only days away from her brother's wedding. What's worse is her ex is her brother's best friend, so he will be there along with his new girlfriend. The bride (Elle's BFF) decides to hire

Gah! Kendall Ryan's stories are always pure kindle crack for me. They are always full of sass, sexiness and all the swoons. Nic and Elle were absolutely fantastic. Their story was funny, romantic and full of the fiery chemistry Ryan's novels are known for! This was amazing!

The minute I read the blurb I was very intrigued. I wanted to see how Ryan would put her patented spin on a male escort story and she honestly didn't disappoint. When Elle's future sister-in-law hires Nic to  be Elle's "blind

Boyfriend for Hire by Kendall Ryan is a well written, sweet, fun and romantic read and I loved it.

Going in I was a little apprehensive about the blurb, but silly me, I should have trusted that author Kendall Ryan would write a beautiful romance about two people finding love, being able to trust their hearts and to love each other unconditionally.

Nic and Elle are likable, relatable characters that I easily connected with. They have amazing chemistry and I loved watching them fall in lov

Ryan takes the cake for fabulous rom-com stories and easy light reading. This story will put your faith back in love and give you the confidence boost every woman needs.

When Elle is dumped just weeks out from her brother’s wedding, the bride (BFF) decides the best way for her new sister in law to enjoy herself while facing the ex and his new girlfriend is to find a male escort; without her knowledge. This should be an easy job for Nic has been a escort for years but when sparks start to fly all

Obsessed with Nic!!!!

We have Nic, sexy male escort who knows exactly what to say to make a girl feel good & just how to pleasure a woman (😉👌🏻).
& Elle, recently single, self conscious, and playing it safe in life.
When these two collide its pure fire! I absolutely loved reading their first few scenes meeting and getting to know each other. Watching a man stick up for a woman, making her feel good about herself, and worshipping her... that gets a girl hooked in a book if you ask me!!!

Kendall Ryan is the master of sweet, sexy, swoon-worthy characters and storylines; needless to say, Boyfriend for Hire hit every one of those descriptions! I adored Nic and Elle, their story had me mesmerized and spellbound, inhaling page after page so quickly I hadn't realized I finished until the end! You know you're reading a story that sweeps you off your feet when you finish it within hours because you just can't stop reading!

I don’t have much to say about this one. Usually I like Kendall Ryan’s books, but this romance was just “okay” to me. Sort of predictable. Not much went on. The two main characters didn’t make me love them all that much. And, who gets their best friend an escort as a date? I know, I know, it’s fiction. It’s supposed to be unrealistic. But, I just wasn’t feeling it all that much. I did read it in one sitting, though. These reactions, however, won’t keep from reading Ms. Ryan’s next novel when she ...more

Kendall has done it again. I loved this book. I really adored Nic and Elle. They were such a good couple even if they didn’t meet in a conventional way. Nic is a male escort and was hired by Elle’s friend and thus the story begins. Nic didn’t know what to do because he knew that Elle was a client of sorts and he was feeling things for her that he hasn’t in a long time and he wasn’t sure how to take it. He had to choose between his job and love. This book will have you experiencing all the feels. ...more
