"starts out funny, but takes a serious twist"
Finally escaping a terrible marriage from a domineering
husband, Cassie has moved on with her life and become a
successful doctor. Only when her ex-husband Jack won't
leave her alone, Cassie decides to hire an escort to pose
as her new husband to Jacks wedding!
Her escort, Lee turns out to be hot, and someone she would
consider dating after the fiasco of Jacks wedding is over.
That's when she finds out he not only isn't an escort, he
is going to be a working colleague of sorts!
HUSBAND FOR HIRE starts out funny with Cassie and Lee
getting tossed into an instant relationship. Christina
Carlisle did a wonderful job injecting humor into
stressful situations and making Lee come across as a
gentleman rather than someone out to use Cassie.
As I mention, the story starts out funny, but takes a
serious twist after Jacks wedding. Having just started a
new job at a major hospital, Cassie gets sued for
malpractice and Lee turns out to be the hospitals
attorney. While I think it would be next to impossible to
make this situation funny, I was disappointed because of
the serious turn HUSBAND FOR HIRE takes.
Christina Carlisle is a fearless author and has written a
very interesting story that covers two different sort of
novels. While I think HUSBAND FOR HIRE does an admirable
job at making this work, I was disappointed that the
humorous story I thought I was reading was lost when a
courtroom drama took over.
