I'm so glad I only paid $1.99 for the nook book of this. I had read "Stealing Home" and thought it was a good story with interesting characters and just the right amount of sexiness. Throwing Heat is disappointing after that. This one is vulgar, the story is boring and the characters are shallow. It's also not nearly as well-written as the first one.

    Ok

    I've read this book out of order and I have to admit I wasn't thrilled about it. It was just to slow and drawn out. However, JP was mouthwatering and Sonny's issues drove me crazy. I enjoyed and appreciated that she told a story about a single mom, but her personal issue was always forefront and tedious. CHARLIE, her son was a delight and refreshing.

           Anticipating their fiery romance, Peter and Leslie come together in a crash, bang, boom that you’ve come to expect in a Seasons’ novel. Having had a brief fling in the past, when Leslie’s apartment is flooded by a plumbing problem, Peter sees this as an opportunity to finally find a way to get with Leslie. Beyond her plumbing problems, Leslie is dealing with financial hardships and trying to get her night club on the map. Peter is facing the end of his career, health problems, and an uncertainty in his future.
          While I enjoyed the romance and the dialogue was very clever, it almost seemed like there was too much story. We have health issues, physical injuries, death, money problems, miscommunication and I honestly felt like I was on a roller coaster part of the time. Great characters but with so many obstacles in their path and not really dealt with, the book was a little ruined for me. I still loved the characters and enjoyed the story, it just felt like too much story in that amount of pages.
           Throwing Heat is a fairly good addition to the Diamonds and Dugouts Series but I wouldn’t recommend it as a read alone for people new to Seasons’ work. Peter and Leslie are fun, witty, and wildly romantic characters but the abundance of problems made the book a little too much work for me as a reader. If you are wanting to start the series, be sure to check out "Stealing Home" and "Playing the Field" first.
