Book review: Hunk for the Holidays by Katie Lane


Hunk for the Holidays

As vice president of her family’s construction company, Cassie McPherson always puts business before pleasure. That might explain why she doesn’t have a date for the company Christmas party. But it doesn’t quite explain why she’s crazy enough to hire an escort for the event or—crazier still—why she’s dying to unwrap him like a present . . .
With whiskey-colored eyes and a killer smile, James is one gorgeous hunk who really knows how to fill out a tuxedo. He charms everyone—including Cassie. And when the night ends, the party doesn’t stop. As Cassie falls, literally, into his bed, James falls head over heels in love. Now he has to figure out a way to tell her the truth: he’s not an escort. He’s her family’s fiercest business rival. But all he wants for Christmas is her . . .

This is actually my first Katie Lane book. The blurb sounded fun and i have heard good things about Katie Lane books so i was excited to read this.The McPherson's have a big construction company in which all the family work. Cassie is the Vice President but really a glorified account by her own words. It's not what she wants to do but as the only girl in the family her overprotective dad wants her in a safe place so she's stuck. James Sutton is the the McPherson's biggest rival right now so he's basically public enemy number one where they are concerned. Cassie is a workaholic and doesn't even really want to take time off for the company Christmas party which means she has no time for dating either. Usually she hires a escort to go to social events. This way she doesn't have to show up alone and well meaning family and friends can't try to set her up with a really great guy that they know. This time though it's James who shows up at her door. Cassie's dad is the one who invites him to the office and then they are supposed to do to the company Christmas party.His chance to size him up. He can't make it though. Unfortunately Cassie doesn't know this nor does she know what James looks like. She mistakes him for her escort and he doesn't correct her and this is where the fun begins. This was a really fun book. There are a lot of really great funny lines that will make you laugh out loud. Both James and Cassie have relationship hang ups but fall for each other anyway. The book was a little long for me though at 352 pages. Here and there it drags just a little bit. I loved all the characters though. Cassie and her brothers are fun even though sometimes Cassie seems a bit clueless. James is great though. I liked him the best. Nice romance that just happens to be at Christmas time. 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars for Hunk for the Holiday's by Katie Lane.
