Lure by Gianni Holmes

Kit spends most of his time out looking for his next trick at the direction of his pimp until one day a random pickup turns into something so much more. Sully is out looking for a prostitute to work for him but as live bait, helping him infiltrate places he might not otherwise have access to.

From the Lure blurb:

When it comes to book smarts, I'll never be anyone's first choice.
Luckily, when a wealthy and dangerous stranger picks me off the street to work for him, he uses me for my body, not my brains.


I'm the bait tasked with luring men into his trap.

I have no idea what he does with them.

I don't want to know.

Until the night he tells me to run, but I stay.

Now I know what he's really capable of...the blood on his hands...

But the danger, being part of something so exciting, only makes me want him more.


My life was simple before he swishes his way into it with his catsuits and kitty ear headbands.

I’m only interested in the men he gets me close enough to kill.

Until he pounces in my lap, meows at me, and changes everything.

I'm straight, but I want him.

I send him to lure men, but they must not touch him.

I take pleasure in seeing them want him, but know they’ll never have him.

This cat-and-mouse game between us can only end one way. Should I let him go before his innocence gets stained by the darkness of my world?

Lure is the first book in The Hitman's Bait series with a grumpy hitman and the boy he hires to lure men into a trap. All books in this series will be of the same couple, and each book will end with an HFN. Each book will follow a different lead. There is no cheating and no breakups between the main characters. The couple enjoys exhibitionism and playing flirtatious games with other men, observing strict rules of a no-touch policy, but watching is absolutely free.

Red Books Reads Review:

I absolutely adored Kit - he is just so bubbly and cute and adorable! Sully is gruff but I love how even he isn’t unaffected but Kit and how sweet he is. I loved how Kit didn’t leave his friends behind either, even though his new job with Sully helped him move on from working the streets. This was such a great book and I really enjoyed how you got to connect with the characters and understand their motivations. The book has a HFN ending and so there are no nasty cliffhangers while we wait for book 2 in the series which is nice. I loved that we got a minor mention of the Smokey Vale bikers and I kinda hope we get more of them in future books as I would love to see what they all make of Kit!
