Product Description

New Adult Contemporary Romance
*Standalone *Full-length novel
*Contains mature content

Kenna Winston's world revolves around money, and the men who spend it. Men are mere pawns in the game that she calls life. However, her game is about to change once she's offered a business contract with some interesting caveats. Kenna has to decide whether she is ready to up the ante and play in the big leagues. Or decide if the proposal being offered is crossing the line, even for her. With her heels high and morals low, she wonders what will happen if her heart gets involved?

Oh that's right, she doesn't have one.

Zackary Knight has always had things handed to him. That's not the life he wants. Can't anyone see that he goes deep, that he's more than just a shallow dollar sign? Who is this beautiful woman who just appeared on his doorstep? Is she someone he can finally open his heart up to?

Because his heart, it's a big one.

Will the desperation for money force a woman to play a ruse on a man searching for sincerity?

Kenna Winston's world revolves around money, and the men who spend it. Men are mere pawns in the game that she calls life. However, her game is about to change once she's offered a business contract with some interesting caveats. Kenna has to decide whether she is ready to up the ante and play in the big leagues. Or decide if the proposal being offered is crossing the line, even for her. With her heels high and morals low, she wonders what will happen if her heart gets involved? Oh that's right, she doesn't have one.

Zackary Knight has always had things handed to him. That's not the life he wants. Can't anyone see that he goes deep, that he's more than just a shallow dollar sign? Who is this beautiful woman who just appeared on his doorstep? Is she someone he can finally open his heart up to? (Amazon blurb)

Let's all admit it: we all have a pair of shoes or boots that we call our 'hooker heels', that one pair that we (women) feel amazingly sexy and extraordinarily confident. Kenna owns a pair of six inch heels that simply attract the attention of men that surrounds her, and not any man, but the upper class. I must admit however, she's a mess and needs to find out what she wants to do in life rather what needs to do to survive, maybe then she wouldn't have to rely on her looks to get ahead (and stop believing that at 24 she's old and done for). On the flip side, we have Zachary, wealthy, gorgeous, talented and has women draping themselves all over him - yet, all he wants is a woman who wants him for him and not his wealth, one who's looking for the happily ever after and believes in love.

Overall, a good read. It's always refreshing to find a book where the female is the player in the story. I enjoyed watching Kenna's tranformation to selfish manipulator to selfless and loving girlfriend. I would have enjoyed to see more of the part of the story where she worked through her issues after her and Zack had broken up. It was also nice to have a male character who, even though he was rich, was just an average good looking guy. He wasn't super ripped, so it made it all the more believable that someone who was as superficial as Kenna actually fell for him because he was an really nice guy.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I would like to start off saying I got this book as an arc for a honest review. I was deeply interested in this book after I read the description. Kenna is a girl who is used to wrapping men around her finger. She was taught at a young age that her worth revolved around her looks. Zachary was the son of a greedy billionaire who was tired of his father trying to mold him in his image. Zachary wanted to feed the whole world... For free. You would think that these two would not work. I will admit that in the beginning I extremely disliked Kenna. However as the story progresses and you began to see that she's never know her own value until Zach she becomes someone u feel very sad for. They get together because Zach fathers offers her a contract for six months to keep Zach distracted because his father wanted him to be the chef in a new fancy restaurant not in a soup kitchen. What follows is a wonderful story about Kenna finding herself and her worth and Zach finding that one person that's meant for him. Beautiful story. Five stars. Reviewed for HeadTripping Books by Amy

HASH(0x9ccd8300) out of 5 stars Fun read! Oct. 14 2015
By Nawal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read Ryan Ringbloom’s previous book, ‘Books Blogs and Reality’, and I really enjoyed it so when I saw this I knew I had to read it.

The way this story started off had me quite intrigued. I think the author does a fabulous job of drawing the reader in. Kenna Winston is a gold digger, to get straight to the point. She’s always used men to provide her with what she needs. And then comes the perfect opportunity for her to earn a bit of cash at a time where she practically has no where to live. But the problem arises when she gets to know Zackary and the kind of person he is. How could she do something so cruel to someone so wonderful? He’s too good but she doesn’t seem to have any redeeming quality. A relationship bound to be doomed.

It’s easy to feel sorry for Kenna’s situation from the start, as it is also easy to see that nothing good could possibly come from what she get’s herself involved in to. She makes some bad choices but she also hasn’t had the best upbringing. A mother who doesn’t really care for her, Kenna had to grow up herself.

The story proved a good companion to me this week. I think the whole concept of Kenna’s background worked rather well. We usually see a good girl and a bad boy within story lines but here we got the opposite. Zack was the innocent, gold hearted man whereas Kenna was the girl who played men.

However, I think this book lacked certain details regarding the characters which I feel was essential for the reader to become more acquainted with the characters. Therefore, if the story went a little slower and there was more involved, this story would have been an even better read for me.

Overall, Hooker Heels is a great new book by Ryan Ringbloom. However, it just lacked detail, which was the only drawback I experienced. The storyline is rather interesting however, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Two unlikely characters get together and create a love story that is as true as any we live through in our day to day lives: there are the good, the bad, the ugly and the hilarious, and that is why Ryan Ringbloom hits the ball out of the ballpark with Hooker Heels.

3.5 Climbing Back From a Slippery Slope Stars * * * 1/2
There are a lot of reasons why we pick a book to read...I am sure there have been all kinds of studies done; academic ones... and the more crass kind, marketing...But whatever the reasons, they are personal to us.

Ryan Ringbloom has a knack with her covers, titles and content. In the two books I have read, Fake Boobs and now Hooker Heels, their covers match perfectly with the titles and story enclosed. She has taped into the perfect visual which carries throughout while reading... meaning all of it held true for me. I mention this Obvious observation because many times a title/cover/story just do not deliver as promised.

But more importantly, somehow this book may have been predictable at times in the overall plot points... but for me, it had me engrossed and wanting to see how it all played out anyway.

We have Kenna Winston, a girl taught early by a selfish, horrific mother that she was not worthy... that she was not lovable... her only valuable asset, her body. She was introduced to the reader in Fake Boobs, but it is not necessary to read that book to enjoy this at all.

A victim of sexual abuse, justified and cloaked in her mind as away to pay for her college education, she was set on a path which colored her world. Beauty, manipulation and acquiring from men will be the way through life...she learned her lessons well.

Our other focus is a man who lived under the constant oppression of his father's fame, life standards and desires. Zackary Knight was a talented chef coming into his own. He was also a witness to how his father's life destroyed his mother's. He learned from her the joy to do good for those in need; the opposite of what his father lived. He watched as his mom suffered the inner torments of anxiety and stress and how she coped. All of these factors molded Zachery. He did not trust others around him for all friendships and relationships were suspect... were they friends of his...of the man... or were they just trying to get close to the Billionaire's son with an agenda of their own.

Now both of these two characters are at a crossroad... Zack has finished all the Culinary training and has been asked by his father to be the chef at the new luxury hotel he is building. Zack told him what type of place he wanted... and he has just been shown the over-the-top designs for the restaurant. He is pissed beyond belief... nothing he had agreed to is happening and told his father as much. Of course, the man isn't listening again and informs him it will be ready in 6 months. Zachery is furious; goes to the only place which means anything to him, a soup kitchen he financially supports anonymously...by volunteering and running the kitchen. There he is himself.... there he is free.

Kenna has just been given a very harsh wake up call...no, literally...the hotel butler has woken her up from her overnight stay in the penthouse with a man she dreamed would be taking her on his business trip to Japan...She met the man in the bar... she eyed his Rolex, worked her magic and allowed him to take her to his suite for fun and games. She used all of her skills assuming he was hooked on her delights and a mutually happy relationship was born. It had happened before and paid off with trips, gifts and housing...so this had all the markings. Instead she received the cold slap of reality from the polite but firm butler informing her and they escorting her out of the suite, to her car to ensure her departure. As her fury is controlled, barely, he hands her an envelope. A bit shocked, Kenna drives away.

While at the gas station, she opens the envelope and see the 5 crisp 100 dollar bills... causing everything she has recently experienced to come flooding back...Her firing from her job as a server at a place which prides itself on the corset uniform of the women...a specific standard of weight, a figure Kenna had difficulty maintaining. She thinks of all the men she had learned to use. They had used her enough, so it was only fair she turn the tables...but this...this envelope, this wake up call...it seems she turned into everything she swore she wasn't going to be... she sees she was her mother's child after all.

As all of this is running through her head, she receives a call from a man who was like a dysfunctional brother to her. He was the son of a short lived relationship of her mom's. These two children connected on a level higher than usual. They had an understanding of who their parents were, what it meant as to the value of them and cynical belief in life. It bonded them through the years. Not always in touch, Kenna receiving the call is a surprise...

Tariq had a proposition for her...and Kenna had nothing going for her at all...only the home with her hateful mother. She listened to him invite her to his apartment with the promise of dinner and discussion. What the hell, she would go, have dinner, rest and regroup.

What happens next is the first turning point for her; she is offered a contract from Mr. Knight to keep Zack "occupied" while the hotel is finishing the restaurant. Tariq is involved with the construction and Mr. Knight pulled him aside to find someone to do this job. It pays enormous money for very little "work" and a payout at the end which provides more. He thought of Kenna for she fit the bill.

Kenna ponders this and they go to have dinner at Zack's place in the same building. There Kenna and Zack meet over the dinner he is cooking. The food is amazing, Kenna cannot believe she is eating as much as she is... she cannot stop...She also is trying some of her flirtatious ways and no response from Zack...

After dinner, they leave and Tarqi asks her again...framing it with the observation and reminder of where she is in her life, what the money would do for her and her past history. She says yes.

Now this story as I said earlier had a lot of predictability to it... However, I really didn't care, for what I got was written with insight. There was an intangible feeling I had to stay the course and see where this was going to go...for the hints of other elements layering these characters were enough.

The development of a cynic with a man who was also a cynic about those around him, for good reason, was interesting to see. Here we had a woman who had molded herself to whatever the man in question wanted... and she was at a loss with Zack...

Overt flirting.... nope, a turn off for him...
Sexy Stripper heels...nope, he thought they were classless...
Touching his strong bicep and give a squeeze... nope, an gentle move to separate her from him...

What the Hell....
What did he want from her...
Turns out he wanted just her... stripped of all her tricks...
Kenna was scared...how was she supposed to do that...
She didn't know who she was without them...

This is told with each of their POV's and it was a terrific way to be in their heads and see all the changes and realizations. There was a hopefulness yet our own knowledge of what was coming ... the good, the lull of happiness and then the realization of it all... we knew it would happen but could not look away.

It takes a bit but I will let you know, when these two get together it is something...It had its own way.. not overly explicit or even often... but when it took place, there was a rush... and yes, Zack had equipment and tattoos which made it all quite enjoyable.

This story had all of the above plus the additional focus on the need for the homeless and those who go without meals in our country. The soup kitchen and Zack's efforts to teach and provide held my attention. It also gave him his platform to be who he wanted, not a pawn of his father's.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the other part of this story; eating disorders. Kenna is fighting one and Zack has been touched by it. If there are those of you who may have triggers regarding them... then maybe this read is not for you. It is handled in a forthright manner and addressed.

Although many may feel the beginning of the book was too much relationship building and not enough sizzle, I happened to think it was strong and interesting to see how things were going to progress. I did feel the flow had its ups and downs but overall I was there throughout.

Ryan Ringbloom has guts. She seems to tackle subjects of difficult people working out who they are... and sometimes these people are not easily loved. I respect that. I will be looking to see what she presents next...I have a feeling it might be that other cynic Tarqi...

HASH(0x9ca29e10) out of 5 stars Another NA Winner from Ryan Ringbloom! Oct. 1 2015
By Melyssa Winchester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hooker Heels is a New Adult Standalone Romance from author Ryan Ringbloom told from the dual point of views of main characters, Zackary and Kenna.

While this book does and can in fact be read as a total standalone, you also get a little bit of Kenna in the book featuring her best friend Tori, titled Fake Boobs.

Because I had the luxury of reading that book beforehand, I eagerly awaited this story. There was just something about her that I wanted to know more about. I knew there was more layers to her than what we were privy to in Tori’s book and after reading Hooker Heels, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was right.

There are going to be people that find Kenna and her attitude hard to take. The way she lives her life, the choices she ultimately makes, they aren’t ones that a lot of people would make, but they are uniquely hers and there are reasons for them. A poor self-image added to onto by a mother that I would have loved to take a baseball bat to, along with being used in the past so that using became her future. It all combined to take this girl who is deserving of love become someone who didn’t think she was worthy of much of anything.

She wasn’t picture perfect and I think that’s what I loved so damn much about her. She needed her eyes opened. She needed what she found in Zackary. She needed the wakeup call she received and boy did she get it with him.

Now before I go into Zackary and then how I felt about them as a couple, I feel that it should be mentioned that there is mention of an eating disorder here. Of course Kenna believes she’s got a handle on it and that it’s not one, but it very clearly is. It was portrayed very realistically in my opinion and I do think the author took a great deal of care with the issue, but if it’s a trigger just tread carefully.

Zackary. Best hero I’ve read in a romance in a while. Truly. He had his own set of issues, baggage as it were in terms of his family, but at the end of the day, his heart was pure. That boy *sighs* Kenna hooked me with those heels and he took me the rest of the way. What he spends his days doing—what he eventually has Kenna be a part of—what can I say, it was so damn good natured and pure hearted. He was an inherently good guy.

I’ve called the author the queen of redemption before, and also the person that inspired me to write my own set of redemption stories, but there was none of that here. She didn’t redeem someone for me this time around. She didn’t have to. I understood Kenna and well, Zack was…well, he was Zack.

What she did do was make me fall in love with the good boy that has a frisky as hell side.

Can I just say…..damn for the steamy scenes? #TeamZackary. It’s those sweet ones you gotta worry about. LOL. Okay jokes aside, the scenes with them fit perfectly into the story and when they did finally act on their feelings, it was pretty damn epic.

This couple worked for me because at first glance, you’ve got the girl that seems to only be interested in money and the guy trying to escape it. Disaster waiting to happen right? Well, not here. Here it was healing and sweet. Also humorous. Being in Kenna’s head for some of the stuff she went through with Zack was hilarious. They just plain worked for me.

What else can I say here? Ryan Ringbloom has another winner in the NA oven here…or maybe I should just shut up and quote Zack since he said it best.

“A BUN.”

This was a fantastic read with near flawless pacing and characters you can’t help but fall in love with, both together and separate, along with a good coming of age and growth story right alongside the romance. It was everything I’ve come to expect from this author and more.
