I bought Stud for Hire by Sabrina York because the cover was sexy as hell and the blurb was just yummy. However I found this book to be not only be lacking but just plain awful. So the basics of this book is Hanna’s sister takes her and a bunch of friends to ranch which on weekends turns into a stripper/raunchy sex land because his cowboys or cowpokes? are really male models and strippers who according to our hero wear body glitter and talk about protein. I was like okay… and of course these are gigolos. Now Logan is a somewhat decent guy and he knew Hanna from highschool, and was in love with her. apparently the hero,herione and villian are all connected because they are from the same small town and went to school together Logan is still in love with her, and of course she doesn’t remember him and thinks he’s a gigolo and hires him. In all honesty Hanna reminds me of this selfish girl from a Hallmark movie she thought these gifts were for her but in fact they were her father from her dead mother but the girl doesn’t stop think about anyone else, Hanna comes off as that selfish with Logan. The sex between was just plain and weird and awful he used a horse bridle to gag her. Really? in a barn surrounded by horses, This just didn’t impress me while it tried to lean toward BDSM it fell flat with safe words like Whoa because of course it would be her safe word. Logan thinks banging her is a dream come true and he’s going to everything he can to make her fall for until he realized she is the one getting married. Now that brings me to Zak our villain he is apparently forcing/ black mailing/ being a total fucking dirt bag and making her marry him. She even admits he’s controlling and abusive which I stopped reading the book after a certain point and here’s why…. TRIGGER WARNING AHEAD.
Zak is not only abusive but he tried to rape Hanna in school which she blacked out about and the fact that Logan saved her from it. Zak shows up at the ranch because of course he does and drags her away . Which then he decides to tries rape her on a back road and does a good job trying at that point I stopped and was disgusted.
I gave this 1 star on goodreads I wish I could have given it no stars. I was awful and not sexy even the sub characters where awful.
