S.E.X. Review~ Jared by R.J. Scott & Meredith Russell

Jared’s world is turned upside down after Luka hands over his pocket money to hire him as a friend for his lonely, widowed dad.

Jared is good at his job, but his soft heart means that he often finds himself in the weirdest of situations. A kind-of-threesome, a disappearing swan, and a destroyed hotel room are just the tip of the iceberg, but he is a popular boyfriend-for-hire and always in demand. He dreams of working as a family psychologist one day, and as his work with Bryant & Waites is funding his studies, the last thing he wants is to lose his job. At a make-or-break meeting, Jared vows to focus on being strictly professional. Still, almost immediately, he meets Luka sitting on the office steps with pocket money in hand and with a sadness that melts Jared’s resolve. Luka explains that his mom passed away some years ago, and his hardworking father needs a friend. Jared has no intention of taking Luka’s pocket money, but he wants to make Luka smile again, and if being hired as a friend for Luka’s widowed dad is what it takes, then he’s all in.

Being a single dad to eleven-year-old Luka is the best thing in Nate’s world, but add running a bar with long hours, and his work-life balance is screwed. There’s certainly no time for relationships, and even though Luka worries about his dad’s love life daily, romance is the last thing on Nate’s agenda. Owning Rhea’s Bar and keeping his head above water is second only to his love for Luka. His entire world consists of his son and the bar until Jared stumbles into his life. Even though Nate won’t admit it, he’s lonely, and Jared is the first friend he’s made in a very long time. Could their friendship become something more?

Jared, Boyfriend for Hire by RJ Scott & Meredith Russell was sweet and sappy, and a nice addition to the rest of the series. Jared worked for Gideon, a boyfriend for hire, was also a psychology major and something of an impetuous child in a mans body. Jared made me smile and laugh, especially when his boyfriend work led him astray.

Nate was a single father to Luka- a youngster who wanted to hire a boyfriend for his widowed father. On a chance encounter at Jared’s place of employment, Jared and Luka entered into a contract that changed their lives.

Luka was a sweet, sensitive boy who loved his father and would do anything to make him happy- even “hire” him a boyfriend.

Nate and Jared were equally sweet. Not particularly rushed in their budding relationship, the authors allowed them to flourish on their own time and navigate Nate’s hesitancy, albeit years since his wife died.

A quick read, Ms. Scott & Ms. Russell delivered sweet, romantic love that placed a smile on my face.

Sexy and Sizzling
