Book Review – Hooker by Brooke Blaine (LA Liasions #2)

Whoever said singles were missing out by not finding true love and getting married before the age of thirty had never experienced the sheer pleasure of nightly romantic comedy viewings in their hookerunderwear while eating one of Licked’s famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes. Because life just doesn’t get better than that.

At least, it doesn’t for Shayne Callahan. It didn’t take more than a handful of broken hearts after college to solidify that she was better at pairing up those around her than herself. As a matchmaker at the elite HLS—Hook, Line, & Sinker Matchmaking Company—in the City of Angels, she has a knack for finding the other halves of even the most eccentric clients:
Sugar daddy with a foot fetish? Gross, but no problem.
A severe case of nudophobia? Match made before lunch.

But even the most happily independent of women can find their best-laid plans screeching to a halt when they meet that guy. For Shayne, that guy comes in the form of boyishly handsome, suspender-lovin’, dimple-poppin’ Nate Ryan on a pantsless (we’ll get to that later) Metro ride.
Of course, relationships can never be easy. Before the destined lovers can ride off into the sunset, they must overcome a power-hungry and sexual-punning boss, a celebrity scandal and cover-up, and let’s not forget Shayne’s dreadful foot-in-mouth disease—with which there can never be a happily ever after.  Will fate throw Shayne a freakin’ bone? Or will she be destined to live out her life as sexy(ish), single(ish), and L.A.’s finest Hooker (upper)?

4 out of 5 stars

Hooker is the second book in the L.A. Liasions series and I freaking loved it.  And the reason I loved it so much was Nate Ryan.

Shayne goes on a pants less subway ride along with a few hundred other folks, and while on the ride, she sees the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen.  The end up talking, and Shayne finds out that he’s a few years younger than her, and still in school (graduate school, but I digress).

The guy ends up being Nate Ryan, who is 24 going on 40.  This guy was way more mature than Shayne and I freaking loved him.  He was sweet and funny and super patient with Shayne.

Shayne’s a professional matchmaker (yes, that’s right.  Do we need those with Tinder around) and her client is a movie star who is looking for a match.  Just not in the way you might think…  Disaster strikes and Shayne has to step in to be his “girlfriend”, which causes issues with her relationship with Nate.

I seriously can’t say enough about Nate.  He is very likely going to be my muse on Man Crush Monday next week – that’s how much I loved him.  I would recommend this series!

Happy reading.
