If you play with fire…
Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen’s club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny’s: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.
Harrison Yates is scorching hot, but he’s got a past that involves being left at the altar not too long ago. Sam is determined to make him forget about his ex, but when she makes her move, it flings her life into a spiral of chaos she never saw coming.
Because Harrison Yates isn’t who he seems to be. And his secret will probably get her killed.
Quick & Dirty: A hot new adult romance with surprising plot twists, sexual tension, and great characters. All new adult contemporary fans should pick this one up.
Opening Sentence: A cool April drizzle pricks my face as I stand in the poorly lit parking lot of the Fremont Pharmacy with my roll-away suitcase.
Sam’s life has been a downward spiral lately. She just recently lost her job, her parents kicked her out, and the boy she has been in love with forever is marrying her best friend. A job opportunity to dance at a club is presented to her, and even though its not ideal Sam really has no other choice but to take it. Plus, this particular club has rules: No taking your clothes off and no touching. But on her first night she see’s the most gorgeous man out in the crowd and she wouldn’t mind breaking all the rules with him.
Harrison Yates is beyond hot, but his heart is on the mend since he recently got dumped by his long time fiancée. Sam would love to help him forget all his troubles, but when she makes her move everything goes up in flames. Turns out breaking the rules will possibly lose her more than just her job. Now both her heart and life are in dire jeopardy of being destroyed.
Sam is a totally adorable character and I loved her. Obviously her life has not gone the way she planned, but instead of giving up she does what she has to make it through the tough times. While she’s not always the most positive about her situation, she never became nagging or annoying about it like a lot of characters can be. She was realistic about it, and that made her so much more relatable to me. She was strong when things got hard and I really admired her as a character. Being inside her head was very entertaining and I loved reading her story.
Harrison is total “mind candy.” Just thinking about him makes me all hot and bothered. Not only does he have killer looks but he is sweet, driven, and full of secrets. Everything about Harrison was intriguing to me and he has become one of my favorite book boys. His relationship with Sam is perfection. It is full of sexual tension, steamy moments, and deep conversations. They have instant chemistry, but their situation makes a relationship very complicated. Everything was developed so well and I completely fell in love with them as a couple.
A Little too Hot was a fantastic read, the best one in the series. The story was interesting and very entertaining. The characters were relatable and so much fun to get to know. The plot had some twists that took me completely by surprise, which I loved. I read a lot a of books so when a author manages to surprise me it is really impressive. I pretty much loved everything about this book and I would highly recommend it. If you like new adult contemporary novels with lots of steam and intrigue this is a must read for you.
“So all I have to do is dance.”
“Absolutely,” she said with a sharp nod.
I breathe deep. “Yeah. Ready.”
She pushes the door open and I walk in. The room is dimly lit by a single torch lamp with a red shade in the corner. A fan whirring on the ceiling dries the sheen of sweat on my skin, sending goose bumps skittering over my exposed flesh. There’s music playing in the background, a slow Bruno Mars song, and along the back wall is a red velvet sofa.
There’s a guy on the sofa, and when I see who it is, my hammering heart stalls.
