Posted by Jennifer in 4 Stars, Contemporary Romance, Review / Leave a Comment




The first in a new series, a journalist focused on her career and a sexy Scottish comedian turn a one night stand into forever.

Cassie Crow leaves for vacation with two goals: fill up her empty charm bracelet and have a one night stand. For once, she wants to have fun instead of obsessively checking her work email. And kissing a man in a castle who’s dressed as a Scottish Highlander is the perfect solution.

Except when that man turns out to be Logan Reid, the host of a popular sketch show—and Cassie has just been roped into his latest prank. She wants nothing to do with his antics, but that was a really great kiss, and one night together couldn’t hurt.

It’s clear that one night isn’t enough and when Logan’s show brings him closer to Cassie, they decide to give dating a try. Can the woman who’s focused solely on her career and the man who refuses to take life seriously make it work?

Review of Getting Hot with the Scot

Review (4 Stars):  Getting Hot with the Scot was a sweet and hilarious romance that I absolutely adored.  Cassie is on vacation with her closest friends when she walks into the middle of a TV prank with a popular TV host, Logan Reid.  Cassie refuses to sign the release because she has worked so hard to build her career and she has seen what negative things will happen to a TV personality’s career after being on Logan’s show.  The only thing is that Cassie and Logan are extremely attracted to one another and the more time Logan spends with Cassie, the hotter the chemistry gets between them. This may turn into more than just a fling for them both.

This is the first book in a brand new series and I’m absolutely hooked.  The chemistry between these two characters was amazing and I wanted so desperately for things to work out between the two.  This was a hot, steamy romance with wonderful laugh-out-loud moments which shouldn’t be missed.  I can’t wait to see which of her friends finds their happy ending next.
