This week's teaser is from Jared (Boyfriend for Hire 4) – OUT NOW
“What happened, Ethan?” Jared couldn’t wait to hear the latest story. Ethan mad scientist in the making went from one guy to another, forgot about them when he was deep in experiments, and nearly always ended up getting himself in trouble.
“Thank you for coming to get me.”
“Don’t change the subject.”
Ethan clutched his bags to his chest. “Marcus lied to me. He was married,” he finally said, and Jared touched his arm in reassurance because even though Ethan kept doing this to himself, Jared wasn’t going to be a shitty friend and say I told you so. “He had all this baggage, kids, three ex-wives, but he swore to me that he was free now, to be with me. But he lied, so I made purple dye which seemed like a good idea at the time, I stood outside his apartment, the one he kept so he had his single life, because I wouldn’t do this in front of his wife, it’s not her fault. In fact, she seemed like she might be a very nice lady when I spoked to her on the phone, and I—”
Jared shook his friend to stop the verbal diarrhea. “Ethan, breathe… and stay on topic.”
“Oh, Marcus called the cops, but one of his neighbors turned up, Officer Lester, and there was an altercation, a scuffle if you will, and bang.” He couldn’t make a bang motion with his hands so he replaced it with a heavy shrug and a little jump.
“The device had a premature explosion, all over the Officer, and of course, Marcus’ fancy car.” He bit his lip. “Marcus was more worried about his car, than me. That’s not right.”

Jared’s world is turned upside down after Luka hands over his pocket money to hire him as a friend for his lonely, widowed dad.
Jared is good at his job, but his soft heart means that he often finds himself in the weirdest of situations. A kind-of-threesome, a disappearing swan, and a destroyed hotel room are just the tip of the iceberg, but he is a popular boyfriend-for-hire and always in demand. He dreams of working as a family psychologist one day, and as his work with Bryant & Waites is funding his studies, the last thing he wants is to lose his job. At a make-or-break meeting, Jared vows to focus on being strictly professional. Still, almost immediately, he meets Luka sitting on the office steps with pocket money in hand and with a sadness that melts Jared’s resolve. Luka explains that his mom passed away some years ago, and his hardworking father needs a friend. Jared has no intention of taking Luka’s pocket money, but he wants to make Luka smile again, and if being hired as a friend for Luka’s widowed dad is what it takes, then he’s all in.
Being a single dad to eleven-year-old Luka is the best thing in Nate’s world, but add running a bar with long hours, and his work-life balance is screwed. There’s certainly no time for relationships, and even though Luka worries about his dad’s love life daily, romance is the last thing on Nate’s agenda. Owning Rhea’s Bar and keeping his head above water is second only to his love for Luka. His entire world consists of his son and the bar until Jared stumbles into his life. Even though Nate won’t admit it, he’s lonely, and Jared is the first friend he’s made in a very long time. Could their friendship become something more?
