Cal Wilson remembers when he and Dan were best friends, so he comes as
soon as he can after receiving a worrisome, cryptic message from Dan.
Even though the two have been on the outs for a long time, Cal still
feels loyalty to his old Air Force buddy. When he finally gets to
Kauai, he discovers that Dan is dead and that his house is being
occupied by a crazy woman with a gun. Fortunately, the crazy woman is
also incredibly hot. Unfortunately, she’s also determined to play
amateur detective and find the folks who killed her beloved brother.
Cal’s not sure which is the bigger threat – the smugglers who might
have killed Dan; or Dan’s sexy kid sister, Cassie.
IT’S HOTTER IN HAWAII is a sizzling, fast-paced suspense story with a
lot of humor. Cassie is a stubborn, feisty heroine who can take care of
herself. Cal’s overwhelmed by her forceful personality at first – he’s
used to calling the shots in a relationship and he definitely wants to
be her protector. Cassie doesn’t put up with that, and the scenes in
which she orders Cal around or tricks him into doing her will are witty
and well-written. I enjoyed watching these two fiercely independent
characters learn how to compromise in order to protect each other and
their newly developing relationship. The tropical setting of IT’S
HOTTER IN HAWAII adds heat to this already spicy romance. A perfect
beach read. And if it’s still too cold for the beach where you live –
well, this book will be the perfect escape for you!
