The Hotter You Burn by Gena Showalter and Book Review


The Original Heartbreakers

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale featuring a troubled playboy and the woman he can’t resist…

Beck Ockley is ruthless in the boardroom...and the bedroom. He's never been with the same woman twice, and vows he never will. With a past as twisted as his, meaningless sex keeps the demons at bay. His motto: One and done. No harm, no foul.

Harlow Glass is the most hated girl in town. The beautiful artist is penniless, jobless and homeless. When she sneaks into Beck's home—her ancestral estate—for food, she's shocked by his early return...and her immediate, sizzling and intense attraction to him.

For the first time in Beck's life, he can't get a woman out of his mind. All too soon, friendship blooms into obsession and he'll have to break her heart...or surrender his own.

This is the first book I have read by Gena and I will be going to get her other books.  I was blown away by this story.  This book has just the right balance of romance, humor, small town life, and friendship without be thrown out of whack.  Gena has a way of grabbing your attention from the get go and not letting go of with.  She also leaves you wanting more.
You have Beck Oakley who is a love them and leave them kind of guy.  He have everything that money can buy.  But something click when Harlow tries to steal a pie.  Harlow has hit rock bottom.  She has lost it all.  She thought stealing a pie from Beck’s window was ok, till she was caught.  She brings out a side of Beck that he never expected and has flipping him upside down. But of course he tries to bury those feeling deep down.  He feels unworthy of her.  Even though she has lost it all, she still tries to make amends for her wrong doing and still has spunk about her.  Things get really nuts when Beck “helps” her find the right guy.  They say sometime what you are looking for is standing right in front of you.  Will they admit their feelings for each other? Or will Beck loose his future?  Will Harlow get her life back together?
I loved this story.  The battering back and forth had me rolling at time.  The passion was not over the top and it made you just fall in love with these characters more.  I cannot wait for more by Gena and I will be getting the other books that have come out so far.
