Katie Lane - Hunk for The Holidays

Title : Hunk for The Holidays
Author : Katie Lane
Publisher : Forever
Published Date : September 2012
Genre : Contemporary Romance

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 ...

Though I gave 3 stars to this book, there are several things which I don't like. First, I don't like the heroine who made the first move to have sex with the hero in the first met (they're nearly stranger!). Big NO! Except she already know about him, know him in years, then maybe it'll be okay for me.

Second, why she couldn't spare time to hear what James want to say? If she could, she wouldn't say that James was a liar. All going through in her mind was having sex with him. Geez!

Third, what kind of a man that after having sex with a woman then threw her out the door? Arghhhh...

If you realize that I'm using several words "sex" on the reason, yes, it's because the sexual tension in this story  was quite a lot, while what I want is the main characters development, just felt it in nearly the end of the book.

Despite of the characters, I quite like the whole story. It's simple and sweet, also funny (when Cassie burnt the tree and Wheezie's character). Love the way the family got together, depend on each other, and how they accept the enemy in their family.

I love the side story about Rory and Amy. Actually, I was hoping that Katie Lane will make a novella about them. Will you?

I also curious about MacPhersons brothers who are single (Patrick and Matthew). Will the author make the series?

Overall, I enjoy the book, but it's just an average for me. By the way, this book is perfect to read on Christmas day ^^
