I received a copy of this book from the authorpublisher in exchange for an honest review35 Stars The first book in the Happy Endings series charmed my pants off so I was ready to evour the seuel once it landed on my kindle I Looking for the Toffees didn t even read the blurb beforehand I justove right inDown on his luck Aiden Rios finds himself in a bar in the Big Easy after one of his clients ends up cancelling on him But things take a turn when he meets Faith Charles and the two ecide to indulge in a night of fun But one night is not enough and Faith and Aiden find themselves making excuses just to see each other again Things heat up between the pair and they become inseparable but when Aiden s secret threatens to break them apart will this budding romance come to a screeching haltI think my main issue with this book was that I went into this book expecting to love it as much as the first book and I might have overhyped things a bit for myself First things first let s talk about what I liked I loved both Faith and Aiden and I thought they were a perfect fit for one another because their kind of on similar paths of trying to figuring out their futures Faith wants to break away from the role of being the utiful The Gulag Handbook daughter to her politician mother to pursue her own passions but sheoesn t want to create a scandal so close to the election Getting her mother to listen to her and to actually see how unhappy she was was not an easy task for Faith but I loved the fact that she The Beckoning Lady (Albert Campion didn t give up I also loved the fact that Aiden was so supportive of Faith even though he only knew her for a short time That s the uality I loved most about Aiden he s so supportive and protective of the people he cares for and is willing to go the mile to show them Aiden too has his own personal struggles as he faces the repercussions of a risky mistake and now heoesn t know how to fix things He soon learns that it s okay to lean on others when shit gets rough and that he Will in the World doesn t have too things alone any While I June Fourth Elegies do think Faith and Aiden made a great pair the romance itselfidn t work for me in this book It just felt very insta lovey and I m not a fan of characters Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes dropping I love yous after knowing each other for just a feways Maybe if I had felt a stronger emotional connection between these two it would ve worked but I just felt like something was missing for me While Hired The Confabulist didn t uite live up to my expectations it was still an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the final book in this series later this year Maybe the reason we re magnets is because we re both hurting inifferent ways Hired was my introduction to the author Zoey Castile Yes the synopsis was too intriguing to pass up I confess I was expecting to be given a behind the scenes taste of life as a male escort And the author s play on her series title happy endings made me smile as well While Aiden might be a high paid male escort the Der Illusionist details of his career aren t what the story focuses on If however you are interested in New

Is endless ate throughout New Orleans with Faith Same for Faith she Different Class didn t have a backbone or plan just perpetual stress about being her politician mama saughter New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world and I will read almost anything set in that fabulous city Unfortunately Aiden and Faith s long Short Stories by Roald Dahl drawn out internal monologues about how Life Was Not Fair and If Only HeShe Knew The Truth About Me kept me from enjoying glimpses of touristy New Orleans I was surprised that Faith as a lifelong resident wouldrag Aiden to tourist traps like a swamp tour voodoo tour and live music at Preservation Hall ok that one is a must see I admit instead of the hidden secret places of New Orleans I finally reluctantly admitted to myself that I couldn t find the spark between Aiden and Faith when I was starting to be bored even with the Goldilocks the Three Bears descriptions of the city And it takes a lot to turn me away from the Big Easy I had very high hopes for this having heard a lot of buzz about the first in the series still in my TBR But sadly I just have to let this one go Note I voluntarily read and reviewed this eARC generously provided by NetGalley and the publisher Aiden s rules existed for protection They were there to keep him and the other party from getting hurt Meeting Faith was a game changer because he was willing to break all his rules for her and now Aiden could become the injured party Pro I always love seeing one of those never me heroes fall for the woman heidn t know he was looking for Obviously it started as physical attraction but it was easy and wonderful to see the bond slowly forming and growing between Faith and Aiden This was a fabulous pairing and I was rooting for them from the start Pro I idn t expect them to make an appearance but I was so happy the Mayhem family was back Once again they came to help one of their brothers find his HEA and so the bromance continues Pro Castile id an awesome job taking us on a tour of Louisiana It was fantastic that she took us off the beaten path I have read many books set in New Orleans before but Castile featured sites I have not visited before and that was a special treat Pro Call me nosy but I loved learning Aiden s backstory He by no means had it easy but those trials really helped shape the best parts of him and how can I not fall for a man who loved his aunt and his mother that much Pro The campaign storyline added an interesting layer to this story and it was fun rooting for Faith s mom Pro It was nice to see such a family focus in a contemporary romance There were some really lovely moments all around between Faith and her family Aiden and his family as well as between the Mayhem brethren Lots of warm fuzzies Overall A fun and sexy addition to the Happy Endings series and I say keep em comingARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG INSTAGRAM TWITTER BLOGLOVIN FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS I m really glad that Zoey Castile aka Zoraida Cordova has taken the leap into writing adult romance books because her voice is very addictive Hired the second book in her Happy Endings series was just as engrossing as her first romance book Stripped These books are full of steamy Socialist Realism delicious and romantic goodnessHired is the story of Aiden and Faith two people who come from veryifferent worlds Aiden is a male escort and Faith is a campaign worker for her mother s mayoral run These two meet under unusual circumstances and hit it right off The characters in this book were interesting and well rounded I particularly liked how much thought was given to writing Aiden and his career choice He was comfortable in his skin and his work He also happened to be a kind and thoughtful person who looked out for others Faith was eually kind She was a smart and strong woman entirely I Look Up To... Michelle Obama dedicated to her family I loved the girl especially when her humorous side came out She meets Aiden after a particularly roughay working on her mother s campaign and their chemistry was 100% undeniableThe romance in Hired occurs in a short time frame but it idn t feel rushed to me Maybe it was the steamy sexual tension or perhaps it was the fact that Aiden and Faith were or less open with each other emotionally They clicked for me as a couple and I enjoyed the progression of their relationship They were so soft with each other And the steamy scenes Ooh baby fans self These were some class A sex scenes efinitely some of the best I have read in the genre You can imagine that their romance wasn t going to be a straightforward one especially given their respective careers but the journey towards understanding each other and becoming one was wonderful By the end my heart was soaring in happiness for themHired was an excellent addition to the Happy Endings series If you re looking for something fresh and fiery I totally recommend these book. Ll have to come clean about his line of work and he plans to right after another taste of Faith’s sweetness and another and another Until a chance meeting with his client leaves Aiden exposed and Faith shocked and hurt Now the hired hottie must show Faith that the love they share is bigger than the scandal threatening to estroy th.
G it not just a setting but another character seeing as everything the characters o revolves around the city Though politics is a part of the subplot of the story actual politics Never Tell don t really come into play in the book Weon t really know much about the campaign other than the sitting mayor is an abusive white man who Feminism is for Everybody doesn t care about his constituentsOther than that Hired is a whirlwind romance that takes placeuring about two weeks though the majority of it happens in one week I m personally of a slow burn romance kind of gal so the fact that they were in love after a week left me exasperated However that was minor compared to the rest of the book s contentBy which I mean there are a LOT of steamy sex scenes be they public with a side of exhibitionism or private with a side of passion and mutual respect These scenes made me sweat so than when I read Stripped let me remind you there was a ferris wheel sex scene in Stripped The sex scenes feel rushed and not at all at the same time maintaining a balance that can be precarious when you have characters with so much sexual tension These passages are also incredibly respectful and sex positive never Deterring Democracy do the characters feel pressured or imposed upon they re both game for whatever the other is game for Faith and Aiden are open with each other both forthcoming about their expectations and experiences It was refreshing to see the way they talked about their lives only Faith sometimes beingistant about her family with reason She Comet in Moominland (The Moomins, d just met this guy who apparently overshares everything about his childhood in ColombiaThe conflict of the story has too with the subplot of the campaign rather than anything to Hunters Heart do with something the other hasone Aiden tortures himself over not telling Faith about his true employment as an escort when he himself says he s basically under contract and he wouldn t openly say who his employer is When the relationship between Aiden and Faith comes to a head it has to Menneskefluene (K2 do with misunderstandings much better than miscommunication in my opinion mostly from Faith s camp and again she has good reasons to be angryOverall Hired was highly entertaining andelicious like a mango sorbet you eat while it s hot and humid outside all with scenes that will leave you hot and bothered for hours You ll keep thinking about Faith and Aiden until later and you ll find yourself rooting for them to get over their problems by the end Castile truly Nazi Gold delivered

for Mayor Love of course conuers all and sooes lots of hot sex Plenty of his brothers to get HEAs I wouldn t even mind if Maribella gets a brother So sexy and fun I loved Faith Aiden and New Orleans so much I will never get tired of watching a playboy fall in love I stopped reading this at about 50ish% cuz well i Selected Poems don t have problems with stripper jobs its rare for me to find stripper books or escort but hero was one if strippers aren t your cup just pass my problem was the whole keeping the secret for so long that when things blow up they blow up and both mcs for being whiney and couldn t connect with them i just rolled my eyes and felt bored with the whole thing i love love Black MC who loves nature and is the sweetest bean in the world Colombian MC who was previously a stripper are slowly falling for each other in New Orleans Dual POV Amazing chemistry Hi I m in love I sadly DNF at 65% I should have loved it it had an irresistible combo of a male stripper a politician s aughter and New Orleans But instead of a sexy heady mix I found myself bogged own and bored by this slow moving endless Doctor Strange, Vol. 2 date between two indecisive passive whiny people It looks like I m totally in the minority about this all other reviews are complete raves so I guess this is a big case of It s not you it s meAiden and Faithidn t light any sparks for me It rove me crazy that Aiden was moping and feeling oh so sorry for himself but not enough to actually o anything about it He had multiple chances to come clean to Faith to his former business partner his friend even his current client but instead Aiden just stays on th. E arms of a hard bodied stranger He’s everything a woman The Train Robbers dreams of in a lover So much so that her one night stand turns into two then three then four For Aiden Rios meeting smart sexy Faith feels like fate After beingitched by his client in the Big Easy the high paid male escort needs a little company himself Aiden knows he’.
