After reading and loving book 3 of the Hot Ice series, I made it a point to try to get my hands on the first two books in the series. As I can attest, these books do not need to be read in order and do well as stand alones. I did enjoy meeting and getting to know Ramrod (the hero in book 3) before he met his heroine.
As with every Lily Harlem book I have read so far, it is told in the heroine's first person point of view. We know exactly what Carly is thinking and how she is feeling. I was embarrassed right along with Carly during the TV studio incident. I do understand that Carly is worried about being a one-night stand to Brick but I'm not sure I agree with some of the things that she did. This led to some rough moments and misunderstandings.
One thing I would have liked to have seen developed a bit more was why Carly has the need to drive herself so hard to succeed. It was briefly alluded to while they were at Brick's cabin in South Carolina but it was not developed or revealed.
Overall, this was a great story and it definitely has a place on my favorites shelf
