I'm really glad that Zoey Castile (a.k.a Zoraida Cordova) has taken the leap into writing adult romance books because her voice is very addictive. Hired, the second book in her Happy Endings series, was just as engrossing as her first romance book, Stripped. These books are full of steamy, delicious and romantic goodness.

Hired is the story of Aiden and Faith, two people who come from very different worlds. Aiden is a male escort and Faith is a campaign worker for her mother's mayoral run. These two meet under unusual circumstances and hit it right off. The characters in this book were interesting and well-rounded. I particularly liked how much thought was given to writing Aiden and his career choice. He was comfortable in his skin and his work.  He also happened to be a kind and thoughtful person who looked out for others. Faith was equally kind. She was a smart and strong woman, entirely dedicated to her family. I loved the girl, especially when her more humorous side came out. She meets Aiden after a particularly rough day working on her mother's campaign and their chemistry was 100% undeniable.

The romance in Hired occurs in a short time frame, but it didn't feel rushed to me. Maybe, it was the steamy sexual tension, or perhaps it was the fact that Aiden and Faith were more or less open with each other emotionally. They clicked for me as a couple and I enjoyed the progression of their relationship. They were so soft with each other! And the steamy scenes? Ooh, baby! *fans self* These were some class A sex scenes, definitely some of the best I have read in the genre. You can imagine that their romance wasn't going to be a straightforward one, especially given their respective careers, but the journey towards understanding each other and becoming one was wonderful. By the end, my heart was soaring in happiness for them.

Hired was an excellent addition to the Happy Endings series. If you're looking for something fresh and fiery, I totally recommend these books.
