So on the plus side- this has a lot of steamy, hot and reasonably well written sex. A hot hunky and surprisingly open man, despite the bad start he and Brooke get off to, and a beautiful beach setting for the majority of the book.
On the minus side, a dishonest and self-centred female protagonist who we are supposed to sympathise with but no nurse can be this dishonest and shallow and then feel she's the one hard done by.
There were some really good parts to this story and some rather poorly written and boring bits.
I have read other stories by this author and liked them, but sadly this one didn't live up to what I know she can do.
Overall this was a 2 .5/5 star.
Logan is a hockey player with a reputation, and that reputation is causing problems. The owner of the team insists Logan has "time out" on a beautiful tropical island staying in the owner's luxurious villa. Surreptitiously he arranges for Brooke, a friend of his daughter's to stay at the house to keep an eye on him. Brooke is more than happy to do this, not just for the peace and quiet for her to study for her nursing exams but for $100k payment. Of course Logan doesn't know Brooke's real reason for being there. They steer clear of each other for a while but he starts to really notice her. Things really sizzle, and there is some experimentation I could have happily not learned about, especially when reading it on an ipad on the Tube. I had to flip through those pages without reading some of the detail. Their sojuorn on the island comes to an end with them happily together, then Brooke is exposed as being paid and the media and Logan jump to the conclusion that she is an escort or worse.
Of course it's all resolved and they have their HEA. I much preferred Logan as a character, complete with flaws, than Brooke who I thought was a bit shallow and self serving. It didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book but she's not someone I'd choose as a friend.
I will definitely read more in this series by this author now they are on Kindle Unlimited.
It tells the story of Brooke Ambrose, a woman who is given an opportunity to earn one hundred thousand dollars just for spending a week on a paradise island with a famous hockey player. She's reluctant at first, but when she thinks that she can use the money to get her through nursing school and launch her career, she decides to go for it. She's not expected to talk to him if she doesn't want to, or spend time with him. She's just supposed to be there to make sure he doesn't go off the rails. An easy job for plenty of money.
However, Logan Taylor isn't just a hockey player - he's also a gorgeous bad boy, and although he and Brooke don't hit it off to start with, the ice between them eventually breaks. After they come to a truce, things quickly heat up between them and Brooke is left with her head in a mess. She wants Logan, but she's a girl with morals and struggles with the reason she was on the island in the first place, and she must keep the secret, even if it will cost her her future.
Hired is a real page turner. We quickly get to know the female lead, who's a nice girl just looking to get ahead in life. Very soon, Logan appears and the book begins to sizzle and steam. I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just say that this is an erotic romance with a fascinating plot, plenty of twists and turns and some smokin' hot sex. I'd definitely recommend this to fans of erotic romance - you don't have to like sport, either, as the hockey element isn't too overbearing.
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Hired is the first book in the Hot Ice Series by Lily Harlem.
This was a great start to the series. I love me some hot thick male athletes!
Logan "Phoenix" just thought he was getting away for some relaxation but he ended up getting more exercise that he had planned due to an unexpected guest at the villa.
Brooke just thought she was getting a free vacation but she never thought she would find
the man who made her complete. This was a great love story with some kinky sex thrown in. I just love these series books...
