Stud for Hire by Sabrina York

Just south of Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll find a little ranch where the hot, toned cowboys are ready and eager to take it all off and make your naughtiest fantasies come true...
When her sister plans a wild bachelorette weekend at the Double S Ranch, Hanna Stevens is pretty sure she’ll just grin and bear it while the other women get their fill of hot cowboy strippers. After all, Hanna has never met a man who made her really want.
Zack, Hanna’s future husband, offered to marry her and save her family’s ranch from financial ruin, and while she accepted, it was never what you’d call a passionate affair. But when she locks eyes with Logan, Hanna is suddenly overwhelmed by the feeling she’s always craved and never experienced: Pure. Animal. Desire...

A ‘never-lose’ poker hand did, in fact lose, and Logan is now spending a weekend as a ranch-hand at his best friend’s place. Only problem is the ranch is less ‘working cattle’ than stud farm, complete with bachelorette parties, male strippers and very few rustlers. Hanna is the bride to be, surprised with a weekend getaway by her very daring sister. Born with a responsible gene in overdrive, she’s keeping a huge secret that no one suspects. Oh – that’s she’s not entirely a blushing bride full of excitement and love isn’t the secret. Nor is it a secret that her future sister-in-law is going to be a big thorn in everyone’s side. But she can do this, survive the weekend in her room, reading, ignoring the overly obvious sexuality of the strippers. Until she spots him. Logan has dreamed of Hanna since high school, she’s the real reason he left Snake Gully, an he’s never stopped loving her. Spotting Hanna, all of his fantasies seem to have come true. He knows that Hanna is all he wants, and he’s just got to get her to see it too. When he realizes that Hanna, HIS Hanna, is about to marry the single most despicable man on the planet to pay off her father’s debts, he’s determined to give Hanna something she hasn’t had since one night her senior year….choices. As with all of York’s stories – the connection between Hanna and Logan is palpable and beyond steamy. What was, for Hanna, her last shot at feeling real passion becomes more, so much more, as Logan never seeks to dominate her anywhere but in their sexual play. With a full complement of secondary characters just ripe for their own stories, a house full of family that would do anything for Logan, and the freedom and opportunity to fully exist in her art, the story races forward through hello through forever. Another wonderful story from York that is sure to make everyone look at their cowboys a bit differently. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

This is book 1 in the Stripped Down series and I loved it. The book is about Hanna Stevens who is marrying a man she does not even like in order to save her family ranch by offering financial support. So for her bachelorette party, her sister arranges for them to go to a Stud farm so that Hanna can let her hair down before she marries Zack. Logan was playing poker with his best friend and he lost so now he has to work a weekend at the Double S Ranch, Logan thinks that he will try to blend into the back ground because he really is not into all that goes on with the parties until he sees her - Hanna - the girl he loved at school get off the bus with the other women. Hanna does not want to partake in any of the games at the ranch and has ideas of trying to stay hidden in her room but her sister has other plans. Hanna does not recognise Logan when she bumps into him but their is instant molten attraction between them so when he gives her a choice to meet him in the barn later, she thinks what the hell and does, she has to be careful with everything she does though as her fiance's sister is part of the group she is with. Logan shows Hanna that she can make her own choices but is upset when he finds out that she is the hen of the group and when he finds out who she is marrying and why - the fire ignites because it was because of Hanna's fiance Zack that Logan had to leave Snake Gully all them years ago. This story is well written and you are drawn into the pages and willing Logan and Hanna to their happy ending, I was not sure if it would or could happen and you will realize as you read the book as to why I say this but I do not want to give any spoilers away but I must say that Sabrina can weave a wonderful story that keeps you gripped in its pages. I loved this book and I will be reading the others in this series.

4.5 stars What a fabulous start to the Stripped Down series. Stud for Hire is well written and allows for both Hanna and Logan’s journey and past to be played out. I really enjoyed the direction the author took this book and the character interaction was well developed throughout. I can’t wait to read more of this series and by this author

I admit, the cover is what prompted me to pick up the book. I was dazzled by the sexy cowboy with amazing abs. The synopsis had me a bit worried because I have no tolerance for cheater books, but the circumstances surrounding Hanna’s engagement and “relationship” with Zach (or lack thereof) eased my fears. I can’t explain it without giving away spoilers, but I certainly wouldn’t classify this as a “cheater book.” I had some preconceived notions that this was just going to be a superficial book about a “Magic Mike”-style ranch for horny cowgirls. What I discovered was a genuine love story with a strong and loyal hero, a heroine in danger and an evil villain that wants to trap and oppress the beautifully talented heroine. What’s unique about this fairytale is that the hero doesn’t just want to save the heroine, but to give her the freedom to become the woman she wants and deserves to be, supporting her dreams and her happiness. Logan is my new book boyfriend! He’s kind, loyal, strong and he will do anything to make sure the woman he loves is safe, protected, loved and happy. I fell in love with him right alongside Hanna. Their story will definitely tug at your heartstrings! What I also love about this book was the family aspect. Hanna loves her family and would do anything for them. And Logan has a big, loud and loving family with three sexy, mischievous brothers who will no doubt be breaking hearts throughout the series. STUD FOR HIRE is a delightful read full of humor, strength and love. Don’t let the title fool you. This story is anything but superficial. It’s a book where dreams come true, good trumps evil, and yes, where oily-muscled cowboys tantalize and titillate…and where love conquers all. ***I want to thank the publisher for generously offering me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

Childhood crush develops into a steamy love Hanna is having a bachelorette party at a ranch with cowboy strippers. That is not her thing, but had been organized through her sister. Her sister in-law attends too and keeps a close eye on her. Hanna does not feel like a bride-to-be should and with time it unravels why she is marrying her fiancé. During her time on the ranch, she meets Logan and is instantly drawn to him, not knowing that he is not a stripper and that he went to school with her, having ever since a crush on her. Hanna decides to have once a bit of fun before settling into marriage and soon learns that Logan is more than a bit of fun. They fall for each other, but that is when things turn into bad. Do they stand a chance? The story contains some soft version of Dom/Sub, Bondage and SM, but really very soft, the focus is on their relationship, but the scenes are steamy. If you dislike the graphic details and also this lifestyle, you should consider reading something else. Overall the characters had been very likeable, the story nice and flowing, a good read. But the book needs some editing. There were a lot of sentences that made no sense or where you had the same word twice in a sentence that diminished the fun of reading a bit. When the book would be reworked and those issues removed, it would be great.

375 stars---STUD FOR HIRE is the first full length in Sabrina York’s adult, contemporary STRIPPED DOWN romance series. This is rancher/architect Logan Landry, and Hanna Stevens’ story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Hanna and Logan) STUD FOR HIRE focuses on the events at the Double S Ranch. When Cody Silver needed a quick influx of cash he portioned off part of his business into a ‘stud ranch’ catering to bachelorette parties and weekend celebrations. When Hanna’s sister books the ranch for the weekend, Hanna has no idea she is about to meet her past and her future in the guise of Logan Landry-a man she believes is a gigolo for hire, and the man who will give Hanna one final weekend of pleasure before marrying a man she does not love. What ensues is the building relationship between Hanna and Logan, and the revelation about Logan’s connection to Hanna’s past. Hanna is an artist; a painter, and a reluctant bride whose family has fallen onto hard times and our heroine has had to compromise about the future to keep her family home and farm together. Logan is a man who has been in love with Hanna Stevens since high school but Hanna was out of our hero’s proverbial ‘league’. Throughout the story line Logan offers up to Hanna anything she wants and needs including a night of passion involving some Dom/sub play. The $ex scenes are provocative and seductive without the over the top graphic sexual language and text. The sexual attraction is palpable; the chemistry is electric. We are introduced to a number of secondary and supporting characters including Hanna’s sister Sidney, and her friends Porsche and Amy, as well as Logan’s brothers Ben, Brandon and Rafe who make life difficult for Hanna and Logan ensuring there is never any privacy or time alone. The brothers’ lighthearted tease is welcome and refreshing. Crystal and Ford from Sabrina York’s The Real McCoy (Cowboy 12 Pack anthology 2015) make a cameo appearance, along with Cade and Lisa (Come Hell or High Water-12 Alarm Cowboy Anthology). Hanna’s ‘fiance’ Zack and his sister Tibby are the requisite evil who intend to make life miserable for everyone involved. Brandon and Porsche’s story line is next in Cowboy to Command. STUD FOR HIRE has a little bit of everything: love, romance, sex, humor, suspense, mystery and cowboys. The premise is entertaining and enjoyable; the characters are heartwarming, inspiring and passionate; the romance is fated by circumstance and time. Sabrina York’s STRIPPED DOWN series will satisfy the romantic heart in all of us.

LOVED this book! In it, Hanna is a reluctant bride at her bachelorette weekend. Her sister planned a wild weekend at a ranch with sexy "cowboys" providing entertainment for the weekend. One of those cowboys is actually a former classmate of Hanna's, but he looks very different now and Hanna doesn't recognize him. Instead, as in the title, she thinks he's a "Stud For Hire." Zach is Hanna's fiance and also a former classmate, but he is not who he seems to be. Hanna should know this, but she's blocked out important events from her past and has no recollection of them. What follows is a very sexy tale told only as this author can tell it - she is the queen of sexy romance. Yes, it is a bit formulaic, but it is done so well that I didn't care. If you enjoy contemporary romance, you will love this book. The author is on my must read authors' list.
