A hot new brother’s best friend standalone romance from New York Times best selling author Kendall Ryan is live available everywhere.


About The Hookup Handbook

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

My Review

When it comes to the ins and outs of sex and intimacy, Case Smith is a pro, and I mean that in every sense of the word; because for the past 8 years, he’s been a male escort, sleeping his way through a never-ending list of clients, but even though he’s damn good at his job and keeps his female clientele more than satisfied, the stress of running a business, managing his employees and their schedules as well as an upcoming book deadline that he’s barely started and it makes sense that his sex drive has taken a hit, but interestingly enough, it’s not that he can’t perform, it’s that there only seems to be one woman who gets him hard – too bad she’s his newest employee, his best friend’s little sister, and completely off-limits! 

Boy could Case use a handbook in order to maneuver around his current attraction, or maybe…he just throws his rulebook out and sees what he could have with a certain curvy and sassy part-time employee who makes him look as his profession with fresh eyes.

I love the fact that Sienna busts Case’s balls on day 1. She doesn’t hold back when she questions him about his 8 year career of sleeping with women and she asks the tough questions, even if he refuses to answer them or even consider them while she’s in his presence. Case needs a woman who will challenge him, not the typical women who fawn all over him and his gorgeous self.

The push and pull between Sienna and Case had to happen, even if it was frustrating. There’s a lot on the line for both of them that has nothing to do with his business or her job, which means if they’re going to give into their feelings and desire for one another, they need to know what they’re risking and be okay with the fallout if things end badly. 

I do have to mention Case’s word choice when it comes to a particular part of his anatomy. I should have ran a tally of the number of words and descriptions Case used to describe his penis – I truly didn’t know there were that many colorful variations, and while some were completely absurd, I anxiously anticipated what would come out of Case’s mouth next to label his favorite appendage.

The Hookup Handbook has heat, heart, and hilarity; it’s a brother’s best friend, office romance that proves that a ‘cocky manwhore playboy’ can be a one-woman man if the right girl comes along and knocks him on his ass.
