LICKED

★★★★★

5 Stars

 

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 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 Companyin 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)?





We already met Aussie Shayne in Ryleigh's story LICKED - she's working for this bitch of a boss lady at HLS - Hook-Line & Sinker - the Matchmaking Company.
But her own love life is not really anything to write home about.
She spends her nights home alone with meals for one.
But on one pants-less subway ride she meets, and falls instantly in lust/love, with Nate Ryan.
Who she later meets again at a bar and again in a supermarket (in the meals for one aisle!) and again in Vegas.
And on all those occasions, while he is amazingly sexy and dimply and adorable and hot and nice - she's just horrible. Her foot-to-mouth disease is out in full swing when she's faced with him!!!
Also, he's FOUR YEARS YOUNGER THAN HER 28 YEARS!!!!

Then there's her job and her stupid boss who dangles a promotion in front of her, if she only goes out with this guy and that guy - all famous actors of course....But that's easier said than done...lots of complications for her not-yet-relationship with Nat....

WHAT WiLL HAPPEN WiTH SHAYNE & NATE???
WiLL THERE BE A HAPPY EVER AFTER???
WiLL THERE BE A CLiFFHANGER??? ☺ ☺ ☺


NOPE..... I'm not telling you

I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK!

Such a quirkily funny and refreshing romance.
Shayne is so cute - so adorably klutzy and with her diarrhea of the mouth. Too funny.
And poor Nate - he's sooo interested in this gorgeous redhead, but she constantly tries to scare him away. But he's not one to scare easily!
I just loved their foreplay-fights ....
This would make such an amazing RomCom movie!!!!

#HOOKER is such a cute and amazingly funny Los Angeles Romance.
With so many laugh-out-loud moments.
Sexy moments - flirty moments - adorable moments!
You just can't help loving Shayne and the girls and Nate of course!
Can't forget the best part...NATE - the mega hot suspender-wearing, future Hollywood superstar producer/director. Ugh! I want!

SHAYNE & NATE:

FUNNY, KLUTZY, SEXY & ADORABLE...
HURRY TO AN AMAZON NEAR YOU TO GET #HOOKED!

 
I can't wait to read the next book!!!!! It will be about Paige! Or PITA as her future husband, errrr her arch enemy calls her!

 First of all, how gorgeous is this cover?  

I have been impatiently waiting for Hooker since the second I finished reading Licked. 

And it was worth every excrucitatingly slow second!

Shayne is a woman after my own heart.  A little bit klutzy, rambles when she gets nervous, and OMG her inner monologue had me in stitches from the beginning!  She is my Aussie sister from another mister!

"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 underwear while eating one of Licked's famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes.  Because life just doesn't get better than that."

And then there is Nate Ryan - le sigh.  From the second we meet him pantsless on the subway, he was in my heart.

Shayne and Ryan's story is quirky, funny, sexy.  I laughed out loud so many times.  I just loved everything about this book.

I adored that we got more of Hunter and Ryleigh and the other girls from Licked.  Though not so adoring of Shayne's boss Val.  She was a cow in the first book, and let's just say she is still moo-ing in Hooker!

I couldn't help but fall in love with Shayne and Nate, and now I am impatiently (again) waiting for the next book, P.I.T.A.

Please don't make me wait too long Ms Blaine!

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.

LiNKS TO THE BOOK & AUTHOR

STALK BROOKE ON:
facebook goodreads homepage twitter

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 Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series. 

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.
