Review: Hunk for the Holidays by Katie Lane

Always putting business before pleasure, Cassie McPherson works hard for her family's construction business. 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 . . .

Cassandra “Cassie” McPherson is the one and only daughter of Big Al McPherson and Mary Ann Katharine while the other sibling of hers are men. Though, she’s the only child of McPhersons who is willingly to continue the family business, M&M Construction, while her bothers choose to stay away. Living around boys make Cassie used to control everything or everyone, including men. No wonder, she’s single until now. But, instead of sad, Cassie prefer to enjoy her single life by hiring an escort to accompany her to attend few big events, especially family events. But, don’t underestimate her, she never-ever had sex with her male escort until she meets James-she-doesn’t-even-know-his-last-name-guy. He’s hot, incredibly handsome, and charming. What happens next?

Yes, and the story begin after that. I love reading this because it reminded me of Brothers and Sisters, an american television series which is showed a complicated story of an American family. It is starred by Calista Flockhart, etc. I feel its warmth is similar to that TV series. Lovely!

Personally, I do love all characters on this novel, especially Cassie. She is a strong woman and I can relate to her independency. She grew up as the only girl amongst his brothers, but unfortunately her father still doesn’t give her full authority yet to take over the business. Honestly, I enjoy this story so much. It’s romantic yet beautiful. And, one of the most important thing, though it can be categorized as romance novel but Katie succeded in building the backround. All the construction stuff. Escort service. Family matters. Those are easily related to the whole plot. The conflicts are just enough to light up the story.

This novel is not only focus on Cassie-James relationship but also feature another relationship. One of them is Amy-Rory. Usually, I hate to be distracted by another love story on a novel, but in here, I am happy to follow the story of Amy-Rory. Their love story is kind of cute.

I giggled all the time while I reading it. So much fun! And, wowsaaa, there are one or two HOT scenes up here. You better to open your window widely or turn down your AC. Hahaha.
Overall, I love this book and I will look forward another Katie’s books. I hope she wrote as cute as this book. *chuckle*

My rating: 


Thankyou Netgalley for providing this novel.
