"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.

Cassie Morgan doesn't need a man--or so she thought--but when her controlling ex-husband invites her to his wedding, she can't resist showing him that she doesn't need him anymore. Unfortunately, she's never been good at attracting the right sort of man, so she decides to hire a gigolo to pretend to be her husband. What she doesn't realize is the devastingly handsome player in reality works for her new boss. And worse still ... he's a lawyer, schooled in the intricacies of the law and the many ways she's breaking them....
