Hooker Heels by Ryan Ringbloom

Life was simple for Kenna, and she liked it that way.

She had mastered two things in her life to make sure that she had what she needed with consummate ease… had mastered money and men and one didn’t go without the other – a life lesson passed on very early in life from her mother.

But while this is all good and well in theory it doesn’t always pan out in practice, because kicking her heels is not something that Kenna enjoys, so when Tariq, gives her a call and asks her pay him a visit, she is more than a little intrigued as to what her step brother may have up his sleeve.

Knowing exactly what Keena is like, which in this instance I have to say doesn’t say too much for how he perceives his step sister. Tariq has an offer for Kenna that he hopes she will be unable to refuse. All she had to do was keep his boss happy.

Zachery Knight may have been the toast of the culinary world but he himself would have been happier flying completely under the radar. This bashful man was being handed a beautiful restaurant by his father, designed to be the most glorious of gastronomic experiences, to showcase Zach’s prodigious talent but all Zach wants is to keep things simple.

Zach’s father needs to keep his boy entertained until he could get the restaurant open and his son back where he belongs – in the kitchen but projects like this don’t happen overnight – so hence the need for Keena.

So what is the favour – well it’s a contract from Mr Knight to keep Zach company for the next six months… now I was a little taken aback by that but then thinking about it – Keena , spending time with an obscenely rich man and getting paid for it- in her book, that is a result!

Signing on the dotted line was never in doubt, but the rules attached, well that might not be so straight forward.

Could they stick to them, I mean would she be able to keep this reluctant man happy?

Zach was so far removed from the guys that Keena usually associated with that it initially it had her on the back foot but he had a heart of gold and was determined that he would have things his own way.

I liked Zach, he was a genuinely good guy, one that moved through life at his own pace, doing what he wanted and what he was good at, refusing to allow the money that surrounded him to change who he was inside.

He was what Keena needed and not the other way round, we was almost an antidote to her excesses.

I loved the influence that he had on her and the encouragement she took from being around him but when he discovers the truth about how she came into his life, is it all over for good?

Or can they open their eyes and hearts a little more to see that they have both changed and that is because of what they have between them?

Can they finally see what it is to be truly loved by someone?

A great story with a moral compass that may wobble a little but ends up pointing in the right direction. Keena may not be everyone’s cup of tea but bear with her she isn’t all bad and Zach is a little stayed at times, old before his time but it is surprising what the love of a good woman can do!

Character driven this is a quick solid read that you won’t want to put down.
