Hunk for the Holidays - Katie Lane Katie Lane’s Hunk for the Holidays features a workaholic heroine, a mistaken-identity hero, and a lot of misunderstanding.Cassie McPherson doesn’t have a date for her company’s holiday party, so she arranges for an escort to keep her family out of her personal affairs. Bad enough she’s a woman in a man’s world, but does her family have to keep reminding her of that fact? When James shows up, dressed to the nines, Cassie is so unsettled by his looks that she forgets to check that he’s who she thought he was.Of course, hunky James isn’t the escort she’d arranged for. Instead, he’s her family business’ biggest rival, carving out chunks of winning bids against them. He’s there to meet with Cassie’s father, who happened to be home sick. Before you know it, he’s heading to the party with Cassie, wondering why he didn’t just say something from the beginning.Well, duh. Because if he had, he wouldn’t be spending time with her now, would he? Anyway. Lust ensues, followed by falling-in-love, all up til the big reveal. Then Cassie’s furious, because he could’ve told her. James is furious too, but I don’t think he has a leg to stand on. I mean, really. What did you think was going to happen, doofus?Well, this is a romance novel — and that means Cassie and James get their happily-ever-after, eventually. It takes a while though, and I wasn’t that invested in their journey because I’m not a fan of lying-by-omission, especially when James knows well enough just who Cassie is. Other than that, the story was pretty enjoyable so take a peek between these covers and let me know what you thought!drey’s rating: Pick it up!
