Product Description


Stranded in a Dallas hotel room with nothing but a red spandex dress, stiletto heels and thigh highs, with directions on where to meet a gigolo, was not how Marlow Smith planned on spending her thirtieth birthday.But when her best friend leaves her knowing Marlow is so anal she'll dress up and go fire the man, she does exactly that. Except the firing. She finds him sitting at the end of the bar and somehow ends up back in her hotel room with him. After a night filled with the best sex of her life, she leaves, thinking never to see the man again, and returns to her boring, stable life.

Business consultant, Liam Campbell, can't believe that little Jane Smith actually thinks he's a gigolo. She's curvy and cute, and he can't resist talking her into bed. And once he gets her there, and on the couch, and in the shower, he doesn't want to leave. The only problem is he never quite gets around to telling her the truth. He wakes up the next morning with a hundred dollar tip and no way of finding his "client".

Three months later, Liam shows up at her family business as their hired business consultant. Marlow hopes that he doesn't remember her and when he does, she wants to pretend that nothing happened. But little does she know the moment he sees her again, Liam has plans for not only her body but also her heart.

Look for the sequel: Hands on Training coming on Feb 19th!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure this book could be any cuter ! 21 March 2015

I loved the story about Liam and Marlow. She was a whisp of a women who wasn't taken seriously with her parents and her suitors. I was angry with her father throughout the book.
Liam is a strong character who fell hard for Marlow. He was willing to wait until she was able to see what she was missing. I'm glad our Marlow didn't feel the need to reinvent herself for a man.
While i enjoyed the book it was a bit redundant in the beginning.
5.0 out of 5 stars Melissa Schroeder has another good one! 21 March 2013

As if I didn't love the other series Melissa writes (All the Harmless series) I hope she continues writing the Hired Hand Series. This being the first, it captures our attention. It took a while to get the second (Now out titled Hands on Training) I hope it doesn't take as long to get a third. Very worth reading. It is too fun to think her friend hires a Gigolo for her birthday and she mistakes a really hot guy for the gigolo and yet still goes to the hotel with him even when he tells her he's not who she thinks he is. Although, he didn't exactly get to informational in is fought and denied until it couldn't be and yet still is. There are more characters that Melissa can develop and hope she does for future novels. This is equally as fun to read as her Harmless series, which if you haven't read one can only ask........why the heck not?

Marlow's friend hires a man for her to sleep with. When Marlow refuses to do it and instead wants to go to the bar to dismiss him, Joey hides her clothes leaving only a skimpy dress behind. Marlow goes anyway and meets Liam, who matches the description of the man on the note Joey left. He invites her for coffee and they end up sleeping together. But then Marlow leaves. Fast forward 3 months and they meet again in a business capacity. They begin a relationship. The plot is vague but the characters are very well developed.

I really enjoyed this book. Melissa has done it again. She has written a great story about Marlow and Liam. It's a wonderful way to explain the characters and realize the love that has developed in such a small amount of time. Can't wait to read more. On to the next one.

This was a really good book. It was very sexy and I really liked the fact that the main character was a curvy girl instead of some model type. I like the authors writing style. I would say that this is a "Must Read" book.
