Have you met the crazy, sexy, charming heroines of her LA Liaisons series?
If not, you should definitely have a taste at gorgeous Rom-Com with Licked and Hooker!

Book Infos

Hooker_coverWhoever 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 underwear 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)?

My Review

Hooker_alleskelle_cast1

With only two books, Brooke Blaine became my Contemporary Drug of choice when I’m in the mood for Rom Com !

I discovered her with “Licked” book 1 of the LA Liaisons series, and I fell under the charm of her sassy heroines, strong willed alphas and all around craziness. And she definitely won me over with “Hooker” !

Here’s what I loved the most about Hooker, but you’ll find the same general recipe to “Licked” as well.

Hooker_alleskelle_cast4

Hooker is about Shayne Callahan, Aussie transplant part of the crazy girls gang we’ve met previously in Licked. Her job at the most craziest matchmaking company, for an even craziest boss, is to find the perfect half for eccentrics clients… But let’s just call her a Hooker. Capital H, please.

Shayne is an heroine I’m daring you not to fall in love with. She’s hilarious, feisty, has ladyballs of steel but has a soft side when it comes to affirm herself in her line of work. She’s also the opposite to what you would expect a professional matchmaker to be regarding the dating game! She doesn’t have any. Game, that is. Which give us the opportunity to witness awkward and embarrassing moments!

Hooker_alleskelle_cast2

Being caught up by her girlfriends in yet another “brilliant” and crazy idea, it’s with complete unwillingness that she finds herself pant-less on a frosty sunday afternoon. Riding the subway. In front of the most gorgeous guy ever… L.A. No Pants Day meet cute, who’s in?

The hero, all dimples and charm, Nate Ryan, is just to swoon for. Cute, charming, dirty sexy nerd… Can I entice a few of you and say his suspenders are not just for show?

Hooker_alleskelle_cast3

He’s definitely crushing hard on that tall redhead riding the LA metro pant-less and will relentlessly try to get a taste… and more.

Hooker was full on anticipation, hilarious come-backs and banter sessions, sexy come-ons delivered by a too good for his own good hero. Add to this one of the best women friendship and support system I’ve read in romance!

I loved every minute of my time with these crazy ladies, and I’ll be back for more for Paige’ story!

Personal message for the author : Could we pretty please get Ace’ story?

Excerpt

“Hi,” I managed to say.

Nate nodded toward my legs. “Your pants are making me hungry.”

Aaaand that was the point where I stopped breathing. Except to say, “What?”

His eyes trailed down my body and rested on my thighs. Self-conscious, I looked down, almost sighing with relief when I realized my lower half was indeed covered this time, but that feeling went away pretty fucking fast when I saw the ice cream cones on my pajama pants practically flinging themselves at him.

Yes, I’d gone out in public in pajamas, so sue me. I hadn’t counted on running into…well, anybody.

“Oh. Oh yeah, um…I like ice cream,” I mumbled. “Especially from Licked, my friend Ryleigh’s store, although I have to say, her boozy shakes are unreal, especially the Make Me Quake Shake, which has these amazing pieces of those Ferrero Rocher balls in them, and they just give it the perfect amount of crunch so that you—” I stopped and took a breath when I noticed his grin getting wider. I swallowed and then said, “Not that I go there all the time or anything. Because I don’t. I mean, I’ve only been once or twice. You know…to taste test. Actually, I never eat sweets.”

He laughed then, and those penetrating eyes, tinged with more green than brown today, made their way up my body once more, pausing with what looked like amusement at my full hands. Then his gaze was on me and those dimples were out in full force.

“That’s too bad,” he said. “I’ve got a helluva sweet tooth.”

Wait…was he flirting with me? Was that a come-on? Or just stating a fact?

“Yeah, well, in that case your dentist probably hates you,” I said, readjusting the cold-ass meals in my arms. I’d be damned if I let those suckers go now. I’d tied my jacket around my waist, and my thin tank top would reveal a tit-bit more than I needed him to see.

He chuckled at that. Hmm. He had a nice chuckle. And a husky laugh. Both of which made my eyes zoom in on his throat. I wondered if it was as warm as it looked. He must’ve caught me staring, because he coughed, bringing my attention back to his face. His eyes were twinkling something wicked.

“You might be right about that,” he said. “Maybe I don’t like people telling me what to do. Or dictating what I can and can’t put in my mouth.”

My mouth dropped open, but I quickly snapped it shut. This guy was obviously a charmer, and after dealing with guys like him all day, the last thing I would do was fall prey to another arrogant playboy. Nope. Not me. Not gonna happen.

Author's Bio

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

She is the author of the international bestselling romantic comedy series, L.A. Liaisons (“Licked” and “Hooker), as well as Flash Point and The Desperate Man series. The latter, co-authored with Ella Frank, has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
