    Hot, Hot, Hot!

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** I love a book where a strong opinionated testosterone laden military man has his life turned upside down and around by a mere slip of a civilian woman.

    By the time Ms. Foley was done introducing the two main characters, Chase and Elena, I was rubbing my hands in glee. I knew what was coming just by the way the author set up the foreshadowing of each character and it's one of my favorite scenarios. I was also curious how she was going to get her characters to dance to love's tune when one of them definitely had ear plugs in to resist. What fun.

    Chase is that kind of guy who takes his job and responsibilities seriously. He's no-nonsense, by the book, and judgmental about how things should be done and the heck with political agendas. On his down time, a reader gets to see a different aspect of the man, the part what would appeal to any red blooded woman with a pulse. He's just that yummy. What I enjoyed most was the author's clever and entertaining ways of making Chase succumb to Elena's charms and his slow realization that he is like every man in love. He'll do stupid things. Of course I sort of wondered how plausible a few of the things would actually be in real life but I didn't wonder too hard. The telling of the tale was close enough to being realistic that a bit of fantasy is a perfect touch.

    Elena's character in Hot-Blooded ends up on a journey of self-discovery. She's good at her job and she avoids taking risks of any kind but one day that tendency turned into a big negative in her life. She was bowled over with the realization that she wasn't living after all and decides to do something about it. That's when the fun and revelations began. Elena has fought against her nature most of her life because she viewed her family situation as a bit skewed and didn't want to make the same mistakes. She's made of stronger stuff inside, even more so than she ever dreamed possible. Her mettle is tested and it was a delight to see her surpass everyone's initial expectations of her, including her own.

    The physical relationship between Elena and Chase is as hot, sensual and satisfying as a romance reader could wish. It contributes to their growth as characters falling in love. My favorite one is when Chase does a 'stupid thing' and it made it so much more romantic and intense. I think that was one of the pivotal moments in their growing relationship.

    There was an intense scene with a big bug that squicked me out. I had no problem visualizing the scene because I'd seen pictures of the thing on the internet and the reactions of all parties involved were completely believable. The romantic girly-girl in me enjoyed Chase's response to the threat.

    Secondary characters were placed in crucial spots throughout the story, either to give a reader a better understanding of the hero and heroine, movement of plot or to give a reader a sense of where all the action is taking place and why. Internal and external dialogues were well done and enjoyable especially Chase's- although Elena's were no slouches either.

    Hot-Blooded was a very fast, hard-to-put-down and entertaining read about two characters I totally enjoyed getting to know. The chemistry between Chase and Elena is evident from the start but their road to happiness is a bit dusty and bumpy. The happily ever after was a delight and the passion and caring between the two characters just warmed my heart. I'd recommend Hot
