Marry the girl I’ve had a crush on my whole life? Check.

Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.

Produce an heir… Wait, what?

I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.

And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.

She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll never be in my bed.

But I’ve never backed down from a challenge and I’m not about to start now.

Mark my words—I’ll have her begging for me, and it won’t take ninety days.

On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times bestselling SCREWED series, Kendall Ryan brings you HITCHED, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat. A NYC playboy turned business mogul has ninety days to win over the woman he's always desired in order to save his father's company. One tiny problem: She hates his guts.

my thoughts

A sexy, hilarious, toe-curling good time! I was HOOKED from the very start…now there is NO getting rid of me Kendall Ryan!

To quote our stubborn heroine…“It was ovary-melting.” 

Ok, so don’t throw stones or anything, but would you believe that this is my very first read from the amazing Kendall Ryan? I know! I don’t believe it either. I’ll be honest and say that the book covers for this series is what pulled me in. The blurb made it even more enticing, but I wasn’t familiar with Kendall Ryan’s work. Well, I thought to myself, this looks like an awesome way to start! Once I read the prologue, there was no turning back. First of all, any author that starts off with a male POV has my vote. I absolutely LOVE it, but it’s so rare that it’s done well, and my GOD is it done WELL in HITCHED! I adored Noah right off the bat. His cockiness knows no bounds. He had me at…“I need to knock her up.” 

Our leading lady, Olivia Cane, took more getting used to. She is stubborn. She is driven. She is spoiled. But once you get to know her she is stubborn because she is a hard worker. She is driven because she wants her father’s company to succeed. She is spoiled…well, because her father co-owns a $100 billion company…I would be hella spoiled too for sure! But her air of confidence demands respect and I envy that.

In just getting to know these two characters, I’m completely intrigued with what’s to come. The blurb tells you everything you need to know, so I won’t regurgitate that for you, but just know that this first volume in the series is so much more than I thought it would be. The hilarity and the passion flies off of every page, leaving me in a reading euphoria. All I can say is THANK GOD that each installment comes out two weeks apart, because the way that this ended…I need answers ASAP!

quote“That’s the whole point of doing this trial period—to see how well we can play ball together before committing to a team-up. I’m doing my best to become friends with you, so . . .”

He tilts his head with a half smile. “Just friends? I’ve got my sights set a little higher.”

Gee, I never would have guessed, what with his constant attempts to steer the conversation toward sex.

I quirk one eyebrow in skepticism. “Friendship is all we need to pull this thing off. And we’re pretty much starting from square one . . . I would call us acquaintances, at best. Don’t you think you’re being a little overambitious?”

“Nope,” he replies, cocky smile still firmly in place.

I roll my eyes. “Wow. Your arrogance truly has no limits.”

“If I can put my money where my mouth is . . .” His lustful smirk makes it clear exactly where he’d like to put his mouth. “Then it’s not arrogance. Just confidence.”

“What makes you think I would want more with you, anyway? You aren’t exactly my type.”

I expect him to just give me a knowing look, or maybe toss back some mild innuendo. What I absolutely did not expect was, “Because I have a nine-inch cock.”

I almost choke on my martini for a third time. I splutter, “Is that number supposed to impress me?”


I give him a skeptical look. “You want to show me your dick?”

“If it’ll help convince you.” He drains the last drops of his Scotch and stands up. “Come on, let’s go.”

I stare after him as he walks away.

Is he serious? He’s just going to whip it out? I look around to see if anyone is watching me, then I get up and follow him to the bar’s back hallway, near the restrooms, unable to comprehend why the hell I’m humoring him. This is ridiculous.

Once we’re safely in a private corner, Noah undoes his belt, opens his fly . . . and pulls out a fucking fire hose.

Holy mother of God. My hands fly to my mouth. I want to gasp in shock, but there’s no way I’m giving him the upper hand.

He was right. His cock is nothing short of massive, and it’s not even fully erect right now. Nine inches may actually be a conservative estimate of what it might look like hard. He must destroy men’s egos every time he walks into a locker room. And I don’t even want to think about what he destroys with women . . .

“Meh. I’ve seen bigger,” I force out, fighting to maintain my composure.

Noah chuckles. “I don’t think so, sweetheart.”

“Well, th-that monster is not coming anywhere near my uterus. No, thank you. I prefer to keep my organs intact.”

Noah’s grin widens. “I doubt that, but just to be on the safe side, I’ll ease it in nice and slow. Piece of cake. Plus, you’ve got good health insurance, right?”

“That is not funny, Noah. Now, put that thing away or I’ll remove it.”

I try to sound stern, but my shaking voice and bright red cheeks surely give me away. Why the hell can’t I stop staring?

He chuckles—yeah, the jerk can definitely see right through me—but he obliges, tucking the beast back into its lair.
