Boyfriend For Hire Series
When the lines between pretense and reality blur, can the actor and the boyfriend-for-hire discover something real?
Ryan Levesque is Hollywood’s newest blue eyed boy. Moving from soap operas to the big screen has paid off for the kid from Minnesota, and he’s hot property. But, when a video from the lowest point of his past is shared on social media everything begins to unravel and old hurts resurface. His agent suggests a way out of the mess, and he jumps at the chance to make things right by pretending he’s in a committed, loving relationship with the tall, dark, sexy boyfriend for hire, Kaden. Only, he never counted on the impact Kaden would have on his life, or his career.
When Kaden Moore’s next assignment lands in his lap, he’s expecting nothing more than a self-centered celebrity who’s messed up. Kaden’s new role is that of Hollywood A-lister Ryan Levesque’s boyfriend, a PR stunt concocted by his agents to restore the actor’s dented popularity. Kaden is aware of the video that surfaced from Ryan’s past, and though it raises questions about what kind of man Ryan is, it’s not any of Kaden’s business. Kaden has been pretending his entire life, and knows he can show the troublesome actor a thing or two about the world beyond the Hollywood bubble. But maybe Kaden isn’t as clued up as he thinks, especially when it comes to the heart and love.
The fake boyfriend trope is one that’s been around and done plenty of times, but I’m still drawn to it because I know I’m going to get the real happy ending with the two guys in the end. It’s kind of a go-to for me when I want that guaranteed HEA, and these authors do a spot-on job of delivering here in Kaden.
Now, I do admit that at first Kaden was giving off those “I’m just here for the job” vibes pretty strongly, which had me wondering—if for a short time—whether things between him and Ryan would head anywhere. Not to worry though…that connection does happen, it still feels genuine, and I truly enjoyed the journey to get there.
Ryan’s superstar life is not all it seems (is any celebrity’s life?), and he has his own unique set of problems with which he’s dealing, and that resurface during the story to complicate things for him. Even with that going on, he and Kaden still develop a connection that feels authentic even in the relatively short span of time in which the story takes place.
Kaden was a solid 4-star read for me, and if you’re a fan of the fake boyfriend trope then this book and series is a must read. This story does touch on the more serious topic of abuse (both emotional and physical), so that along with the adult language and sexual content makes this book one for readers 18+.
