About this ebook

Even in dating, the best defense is a killer offense. And with exes that are flat-out bad dudes, you can’t go wrong with the biggest, baddest Big O consultant at your side.

Name’s Aidan Knight. I’m the guy you don’t bring home to mama—the rough, gruff, tatted-up bruiser our clients hire to scare off dangerous or stalker exes. Though I’m always intense, when the terrorized client is a great girl I never should’ve let become the one that got away, my new default cranks up to savagely protective.

Letting her out of my sight is just not happening. And soon, all the time we end up spending together starts including some really big, epic O’s. The kind that require cardio workouts and protein bars for stamina.

As if I need more reasons to fall harder for this woman.

For the record, back in college, I thought I was doing the noble thing by leaving her untouched. Now, I see things a little differently. Will I be saving her from her psycho mob boss ex? Of course. Will I be the gentlemanly knight who sets her free and leaves the rest to fate again?

Hell no.

Note: Hot Knight For Hire is a super sexy romantic comedy entirely from the hero’s point of view. Lots of filthy sweet talking. Insanely acrobatic smexy times. Two wild and crazy characters. And a romping fun HEA. Enjoy!

Ekkkkkk Aiden is definitely not man you want to mess with. He is finding that trying to help his friend might lead to more complications in his life then he had planned for. Aiden is 100% s stand up guy, and he will always do the right thing no matter what. When he inadvertently takes a job working for an "old friend" he is not sure what to make of her situation. Cat knew exactly what she was getting into the minute Aiden came walking thru that door, but will she be able to separate her feelings from the past from her feelings in the present. Two people that have a very strong connection never lose that even if its been eleven years since they last laid eyes on each other. Those feelings never really go away. I loved the easy conversation between Aiden and Cat and how they kind of just picked up where they left off all those years ago. And I mean Hello Aiden is a dirty talker and he knows just how to get Cat all riled up and ready. I loved getting to look back at there relationship in the past compared to the feelings that they were having in the present. This was actually a very relatable story and of course it was equal parts sexy dirty and funny. Lili has a way with words and this book was no was just as fabulous as the last one. I can not wait to see what happens next with Shane. This series has been a delight to read.

This author speaks to my funny bone and my heart… Saying Lili Valente is a heart and funny-bone whisperer sounds not quite right but… she really is! After Magnificent Bastard hit so many highs in the happiness stakes, I honestly was nervous heading into Cat and Aidan’s story. How could it ever equal Penny and Bash’s romance? Well, I can honestly say it didn’t… It surpassed any expectations I could ever have had…. This time around, text and emails have been replaced with old-fashioned, hand-written notes. Stuffed in an unmentionable body part no less! OMG, I’m still laughing… Their relationship started honestly, and anonymously, years before and paved the way for their unexpected reunion. What they had flirtatiously started so long ago was going to be shared through flashbacks as circumstances had them together again but for a very different reason. Trying to keep to a professional level is darn near impossible despite how much different they now appear to be. On the surface anyway. Cat’s professional demeanor is a far cry from the balls-to-the-wall zest for competition and life that Aidan used to know. “… I’m all about giving a f***. I give big f***s, all the f***s.” She is, however, feisty and quick with a comeback, ready to meet Aidan word for word, toe to toe. The perfect match for a man who deserves a smart and loving woman… And he does deserve her. Aidan has changed too though his reputation for badness is well-deserved and absolutely delicious. No, really… I’m sure ‘lickable’ is on his resume somewhere. His gift for out of this world dirty talk is only rivaled by his protective streak… “I won’t pull out your chair, sweetheart, but I will pull your hair.” Words are aphrodisiacs and the minute they come together the sheets (and pages) are burning in lust-filled, emotion-fueled heat. They are incredibly sexy and absolutely made for each other – and when I stop laughing I will revel in their happiness… I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Once again, Lili Valente has written a magnificently entertaining story filled with humor, passion and a bit of suspense proving her grand ability to draw me into the lives of her characters and becoming one with their universe. Spectacular Rascal returns us to world created in Ms. Valente’s novel, Magnificent Bastard, but this time reintroducing us to Aiden whom we met before. Though Aiden’s passion it running his tattoo business, his best friend and owner of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, has convinced him to work for him as well. But unlike Bash’s smooth, gorgeous businessman persona, Aiden is the complete opposite. His “bad boy” look comes complete with a beard and tattoo sleeves covering each arm. This façade is perfect for the hard-to-get-rid of ex’s, you know the ones that just don’t seem to get the hint that it’s over. But despite his gruff and tough-guy exterior, Aiden has the heart of a giant teddy bear. When he meets his new client, Cat, the memories of 11 years ago come flooding back. Aiden is determined to turn her away because of the potential conflict of interest; that is until he meets her ex who just happens to be in the mob and is about as scary and creepy as they come and clearly is not going to take Cat’s no for an answer. In spite of his hesitation, Aiden begins to feel a protectiveness for Cat and recognizes how much she needs his help. As they begin to spend more time together, their relationship moves beyond and simple business arrangement. When the connection from the past again resurfaces, it makes it nearly impossible for him to walk away. And as Cat remembers their past as well, she also wants more from Aiden. Will Aiden be able to keep Cat safe from her ex, and will they find comfort and love in each other’s arms, the kind of love which is meant to last a lifetime? Aiden is such a sweetheart making me absolutely swoon over and over again, and his “dirty talk” with Cat is oh-so-sexy. Cat is a bit on the crazy side which I must admit makes me love her as well and believe me when I say she can deliver the “dirty talk” as well as she can take it. The banter between these characters is hysterical making me chuckle and laugh out loud. Lili Valente at one point even breaks the fourth wall talking directly to the reader which is absolutely fantastic (not to mention the creatively amusing epilogue). I just couldn’t stop giggling it was so much fun. Spectacular Rascal is definitely a must, must read. If you haven’t given Lili Valente a chance in the past, this is certainly a great place to start. She has an absolutely undeniable knack for combining comedy with hot, sexy passion with elements of suspense and danger that will keep you coming back for more, more, more!

About the author

Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.

When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.

You can currently find Lili in Vermont, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.

Lili also writes darker, dirtier books as Everly Stone.
