About Hot for the Fireman:

Ex-Army Ranger Erik Grady lives for the job. So when his chief at the Boston Fire Department offers him two choices—mandated therapy for supposed PTSD or a permanent desk job at the station, he reluctantly agrees to see a shrink. Only this doctor is unlike anything he expected. Female and curved in all the right places? Check. Hotter than a four-alarm fire? Check. The kind of woman that can heat his blood in and out of bed? Check, check. And oh, yeah, he just happens to have first hand experience…

Of all the men to walk into psychologist Olivia Jones’ office, why did it have to be him? Her one-night stand isn’t playing by the rules of just. One. Night. She’s had her heart broken in the past, and no way is she going there again. And now he’s blackmailing her into three dates? Well, if that’s what it takes to make him see a different therapist, fine. She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She’s a professional, damn it. She’ll date Mr. I’m Too Sexy For My Bunker Pants. But it won’t end in the fun he expects.

It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was such a great read!!! Erik is a sexy, alpha type hero, who has ghosts from his past that he’s trying to overcome. Livvie couldn’t be more perfect for him. No matter what he needs, she gives it to him (whether he wants her to or not) She seems to know what he needs before he even realizes it. The help each other heal, and find love along the way.

The secondary characters added so much to this book, and we get a glimpse of what I think might be a future couple. I have to say, Smoke stole my heart and I can’t wait to see him fall (here’s hoping he gets a story, and it won’t be the very last one)

This story is definitely a must read!!!

~~~Emotional New Release, Excerpt, and Review!!!~~~The Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett

FBHardTruthNowAvailable

 

 

The Hard Truth About Sunshine AMAZON

New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett has written her most gripping and poignant tale yet. Provocatively heart-breaking, audaciously irreverent and romantically fulfilling, The Hard Truth About Sunshine exposes just how very thin the line is between a full life and an empty existence.

Despite having narrowly escaped death’s clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It’s only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.

What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again… can he learn to love again?

He’s about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can’t decide whether she wants to live or die.

Four people with nothing in common but their destination. They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love. And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all.

The hard truth about sunshine…
Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

LaurenBlakelyQuote

 

Jillian holds my gaze for a moment, her eyes drilling into mine before she gently tugs on the material of my jeans near the shin rod of my prosthetic. “What happened to you?”

She doesn’t look away. Not down at the fire, not down to my legs. She stares right at me. Although my gut is turning slightly at the thought of telling her what she asked, I forge straight ahead. For the first time, I tell someone who is not medical personnel or a shrink my story.

“I was driving a military Humvee and the right front tire ran over a roadside bomb,” I say, and Jillian makes a sound of distress low her in throat as her eyes turn sad. “It completely obliterated my buddy sitting in the passenger seat.”

To my surprise, Jillian scoots over closer to me and lays her head on my shoulder. She pushes her hand in between my ribs and my arm, curling her fingers over my bicep. It’s a show of support. Solidarity. That she’s settled in for the long haul of this story, and she wants to hear it all.

“It didn’t blow my leg off,” I tell her, and I can feel her body jerk slightly in surprise. Her fingers squeeze my bicep. “The fingers yes, the leg no. It just shattered and shredded it badly, but the doctors tried hard to save it.”

“Obviously, they couldn’t,” she whispers the obvious.

“They tried for three months,” I tell her, reaching down to grab my phone laying near my left hip. Jillian lifts her head up, watching as I pull up my pictures. I scroll backward, but it doesn’t take long to find what I’m looking for because I don’t take a lot of photos. I hold the phone out so she can see. “This was taken about a month after my injury.”

Jillian makes a strangled sound as she looks at the photo of me in bed. My eyes are half open because I was bombed out on so many heavy-duty pain medications, and I have a grimace on my face. I vaguely remember this picture being taken, and I think it may have been by my brother, Hank, when he came to visit once during that first month. He came a few more times after that, and then he didn’t.

Jillian’s eyes roam over the photo. My leg is encased in the external fixator with several rods leading from the outside of the cage right into my skin, where it’s drilled through and into the bone to hold the pieces together. The wounds on my leg are all open to the air, red and some of them dripping with puss and lined with blisters. I’ve got IVs in both arms and a PICC line in the right side of my neck to deliver the hordes of antibiotics and pain meds I needed to keep me alive and functioning. I took the maximum dosages they allowed me, preferring to try to be oblivious to what was happening. Yet, the pain was so great it just couldn’t be fully erased.

Jillian turns her head to look at me, and I lay the phone back down. “How long were you like that?”

“Three months. But they couldn’t get ahead of the infections, which were delaying the bones from knitting. I was in so much pain that I wanted them to amputate.”

“You had to make that decision?” she whispers.

I nod. “Yup. I mean… the doctors were at the point they felt it was the right way to go, although they were willing to keep trying if I wanted. But I wanted it gone. I was tired of being in the hospital and being in so much pain. I just wanted it gone.”

“Do you regret that decision?” she asks me bluntly, but with that still-sweet melody her voice makes. The question doesn’t bother me, because even her hard questions sound lovely.

“Yes,” I tell her without any shame. “I wonder what would have happened if I held on just a little bit longer. Not long after the leg came off, the pain receded and I became more lucid. Once I’d forgotten how bad the infections smelled, I regretted it.”

“Three months is an awful long time to be in pain like that,” she points out the obvious.

I shrug. “And the rest of my life is a long time to wonder ‘what if.’”

 

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was an awesome read, and not your typical romance. It will have you laughing at some parts, and ugly crying at others. Each of here characters are facing some type of challenge, and it both awesome and heartbreaking to read about them taking this journey. It was hard to like Christopher and Barb at first, but as we get their background stories, you can’t help but understand where they are coming from. I loved both Jillian and Connor’s characters from the start. They were dealt a crappy hand, but both of them tried to make the best of it. A story of love, healing, hope, and tragedy, this book is a must read!!!

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was so excited to get Trent and Grace’s story, and it didn’t disappoint.

There were moments where I would have loved to reach in and smack Trent upside his head, after pulling it out of his butt of course lol. Grace was a pretty awesome heroine, who was just done and wanted to find happiness. My heart broke for her when she had set backs, and I was thrilled when she finally found happiness. There were twists and turns in this book, and of course, there were tears.

A great ending to the Hennington brothers stories, that I would definitely recommend!!

~~Hot New Release and Excerpt!!!~~ Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

SBPR-DFRM-BLOGTOUR

Dirty Filthy Rich Men, an all-new sexy, contemporary romance from NYT Bestseller Laurelin Paige is available now!!!

dirtyfilthynewfontfinal

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.

 

Excerpt:

After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond.

Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm.

I was really here.

I made it.

It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out.

I couldn’t stop grinning.

“It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me.

Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window.

And everything disappeared.

The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me.

I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me.

“Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much.

And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips.

I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore.

He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.”

Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan.

Which was why I was screwed if he was here.

Why the hell was he here?

“I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier.

As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew.

“I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?”

Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world?

About the Author:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

About HARD JUSTICE:

Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…

My Review 

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a really good read!! Fallon is a sweet heroine, who’s been a bit sheltered due to her parents wealth, and a tragic accident as a teenager. Seeing her find herself, and her confidence growing, was awesome to read about. Justice is sexy, protective, and Fallon brings a sweet side out in him. I loved the banter between Justice and his friends, it’s almost a brotherhood. Add in the perfect amount of mystery/suspense, and you’ve got a great read.

I would definitely recommend this, and I can’t wait to see who the author has lined up for the next book!!

~~~**Excerpt Reveal!!!!**~~~ Easy Magic by Kristen Proby

EM Banner 2

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes the next sexy and captivating standalone title in the Boudreaux Series, EASY MAGIC. Take a trip to the Big Easy and fall in love with Beau and Mallory’s passionate story on April 4, 2017 in this upcoming contemporary romance. Check out the excerpt below and preorder your copy today!

 

 

EasyMagic BN Kobo

 

The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Family. Responsibility. Stability.

As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him.

If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting.

Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are.

When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day.

Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

EM Teaser 1

EXCERPT

I turn to look at him and he’s leaning against the door jamb, watching me with lust written all over his face.

I don’t have to be psychic to see it.

He wants me.

He slowly pushes away from the door and moves toward me, his shoulders broad in the white button down shirt, his arms hard where the shirt is rolled to his elbows. His jaw tightens as he gets closer, towering over me because he’s so damn tall, but I’m not afraid of him in the least.

He doesn’t say a word as he lifts his hand to cup my cheek, his thumb brushing under my eye. I wrap my hand around his wrist and lean into his touch, soaking up his warmth. God, I’ve missed being touched.

Being touch by Beau is like being touched for the first time in my life, and I never want him to stop.

He lowers his lips to mine, brushes them lightly, nibbles the corner, and then sinks in for the kiss of my life. He gently urges my mouth open, and licks my lips, and devours me. His hand dives into my hair, and the wall is suddenly at my back as he continues to explore me in ways I didn’t even know existed.

He braces his free hand on the wall above my head, and I fist my hands in his shirt at his sides, holding on for dear life.

Finally, he pulls back, breathing hard, his eyes bright and dilated.

And in the moment, I know. His touch is safe. I can trust it. Him. I’m not bombarded with someone else’s emotions, and I am free to simply feel my own while being intimate with him.

“So that’s what all the hoopla’s about.”

He smirks, and I realize I spoke aloud again, but I’m not embarrassed. Not in the least.

He takes a deep breath and drags his knuckles down my cheek.

“I want to keep you here all night,” he murmurs before kissing my forehead. “So I’d better take you home.”

I smile. He could talk me into staying. But he’s not. And I’ll be damned if that doesn’t make me like him even more.

TMB_Twitter_NA

TakeMeBack_FrontCoverWe fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.

It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What an amazing read!!! From the first page to the last, this story will pull you in and keep your emotions running!! Dane and Kat are PERFECT together, and finding their way back to each other was a ride I soon won’t forget! This book was a bit different from the Meghan March ones I’ve been obsessed with recently (Dirty Billionaire and it’s spinoffs), and I was worried that I wouldn’t like it as much, but I think it catapulted to the top of my favorite Meghan March reads!! This is definitely one that needs to be read!!

Synopsis


She’s the light from his past.

 

 

 

He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 
Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 
When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.
Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 
His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 
One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.
***
This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.

 

 


Excerpt

One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.
Something passes between us.
A decision.
A choice.
No more fighting this.
“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.
The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.
A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”
I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.
At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.
He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.
His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.
His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.
                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.
                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.
                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.
                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”
                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?
                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”
                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.
                What we did have.
                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”
                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.
                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.
                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.
                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”

My Review

Resisting Temptation

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was an absolute mess while reading this book. The author has a way of drawing you in, making you feel what Cade and Faith are feeling, and it’s both heart wrenching and awesome at the same time.

Cade was a phenomenal hero. He was rough around the edges, and living with his demons seems to have broken him. Faith is his complete opposite. She’s sweet, fun, sexy, and can overcome anything and still see positive in the world. While these 2 stole my heart, I can’t leave out Ruthie and Christopher. They have been through a lot, but with Faith as their guardian, they get all the happiness they deserve, and it was great to see them come out of their shell.

This story had me in 2 emotional states. Blubbering like an absolute fool, and cracking up at the antics between Cade and his buddies, and everything Ruthie.

A phenomenal must read!!!

 

An Act Of Courage

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

KC Lynn knows how to draw a reader in and keep them drawn in to the end. The emotions she’s brings out in her books are so great, it will leave you with a major book hangover.

I was so excited to learn we would get a book for Christopher!!!! (We met him as a secondary character in Resisting Temptation, which I would definitely recommend checking out first since it gives you a lot of his background story) He was such a strong hero, but a broken one. It’s hard seeing a hero you love go through what he went through, and finding out exactly what happened?? Make sure you have the tissues ready, because there are no words for it. Alissa is exactly what he needs in his life. She brings him out of his darkness, and helps him find some peace.

I loved catching up with the Men of Honor characters, especially Cade and Faith. They played such an important part in Christopher’s life, and it was awesome seeing the bond never died.

A phenomenal read of love, strength, healing and forgiveness, with the perfect amount of suspense, that I would definitely recommend!!!

Hot Stuff
Book 1

He’s about to find out … She’s not just one of the guys.

Annabelle Jordan and her two sisters were orphans in frilly dresses when they went to live with their sports-lawyer uncle in his world of locker rooms, bookies and gambling. Now the girls are publicists in their uncle’s firm, The Hot Zone.

Despite her upbringing, Annabelle is all woman. She’s naturally drawn to real men—like her latest client, businessman and former football legend Brandon Vaughn.

The chemistry is potent, undeniable, irresistible. Annabelle soon realizes that Brandon is much more than just another jock. And that she’d better hold on tight if she doesn’t want to lose her heart.

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Loved this read!!!

Between a sexy sports hero, and a heroine who is all girl in a boys world, the chemistry between Vaughn and Annie was instant. They are just about complete opposites, but they have the same drive to succeed. My heart broke for Annie and her past, and how she is still a bit insecure about some things. Vaughn has his own struggles, both past and present, that he’s trying to get through. There are twists and turns throughout, and I love how Carly handled the relationship between Vaughn and his parents in the end. A perfect start to this series, that is definitely a must read!!

Hot Number
Book 2

But the star publicist is looking to prove she’s also an irresistible woman in order to get a second shot at professional baseball player and major league playboy, Damian Fuller.

Micki transforms herself into one hot number Damian can’t help but notice and together they burn up the sheets and find themselves falling hard. Until Damian’s past returns, threatening their future.

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This just might be my favorite Carly Phillips book ever, and mostly because of Mikki’s character alone. She is probably the most realistic heroine I’ve ever read about. While she’s strong and confident overall, she has some insecurities that just about every woman can relate to, and she’s a character you would want to be besties with. Damian was just as likable, even when I wanted to smack him upside his head for not using his brain and considering some of the situations he puts Mikki in and how they would make her feel. He definitely has his good points though!

I loved catching up with some of secondary characters, and was excited to see a certain stubborn man pulled his head out of his butt and admitted his feelings to the love of his life.

A phenomenal must read!!

Hot Item

Enter star quarterback and notorious bad boy Riley Nash who, for reasons of his own, needs to track down Atkins.

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I absolutely loved this story!!

Sophia is a strong, yet a bit guarded heroine. She definitely has the need to take care of people, whether it’s her family members or clients that The Hot Zone has. I have mixed feelings about Riley. He was a bit deceitful with what was happening at The Hot Zone/Athletes Only offices, almost seeming vengeful. He more than made up for it, showing Sophia how loved she could be. These two together were entertaining to read about. Between their banter, and the hard time they had keeping their hands off each other, it was perfect. Add in a bit of drama with the secondary characters, and you’ve got the perfect read. Spencer’s sisters had me cracking up, it was good seeing that not all teens in books are angels, and of course we can’t leave out meddling Uncle Yank.

A perfect addition to the Hot Zone series that is a must read!!!

Hot Property
Book 4

Just one short season ago, major league center fielder John Roper had it all: the looks—and personal life—of a sports hero and the public’s adoration. But this hot property’s lucky streak has run out. After a World Series disaster, fans diss him, shock jocks mock him and his dysfunctional family hassles him for money he really can’t spare.

Now it’s up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.

Amy finds it’s easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper’s refusal to put his own needs first, she’s starting to think that life in the fast lane isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball—one she never saw coming…

My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What a fantastic ending to the Hot Zone series!!!

I was so excited to see that Amy (who we met in Hot Item) was getting her own story, and it didn’t disappoint. She’s a sweet heroine, who takes life a bit seriously most of the time. John is perfect for her. He brings out a fun side of her, helps her let her guard down. Reading about each of their families makes me grateful for my normal one. Amy’s family had me cracking up most of the time, and John’s had me wanting to smack them upside their heads. Add in a bit of drama with a crazy fan, and you’ve got an awesome read!! I would definitely recommend this!!
