Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Three established authors dish out a perfect beach read: wealthy New Yorkers, summer sun, and sizzling sexual chemistry. Hill's "Summer Fever" kicks things off with an idyll in the Hamptons. Nina Forbes is a schoolteacher whose best friend hooks her up with a house-sitting gig. The house is fabulous, and the neighbor, British import Ian Harrison, is even better. In Bryant's "One Hot Summer," Nylah Lovely has been burned once by a celebrity lover, but when basketball star Maleek Trenton hires her to plan a party for him, she can't resist his arrogant yet honest charm. While Day's intrigue-laden "Too Hot to Handle" is the weakest of the three stories, the steamy elevator scene between pampered Choice McKinley and her family firm's star employee, Trey Scott, is irresistible fantasy fare. These authors know how to give their readers exactly what they want. (July)

Lady Raven Rave "Romance Novel Junkies" Donna Hill This story was ok to me a 3.5 star read. Even though I give it 3.5 star I still thought it was cute. Nina a regular school teacher in Brooklyn went to the Hamptons for her summer vacation. The house next to the summer house belonged to Ian, Ian is a successful business man who was immediately attracted to Nadia. In the beginning the little cat and mouse flirting game these two play was cute but got annoying after a while. It's realistic of course but annoying. Other than that the story flowed ok for me and I enjoyed getting to know both Nina and Ian. I thought the ending was cute as well when he showed up at her school. Niobia Bryant This was a 5 star read for me. This sorry was soooooooo cute. I love Maleek every time I read his name I think of Maleek from the tv show The Game. Love as her friends calls her, was in a high profile relationship and and divorce from her R&B ex that didn't go too well. She was public humiliate with his cheating and swore off dating high profile men. Maleek is a famous athlete and also had his heart broken and is ok with the single life until he meets Love. These two were sexy and steamy, I also love there back and forth conversation and their sexy intimacy was hot. Spoiler********As for Tashi *shaking my head* Like fat Joe says Jealous Ones Still Envy. Zuri Day This was a 4 star read for me. It was a nice read, the elevator scene was hot and steaming with Choice and Trey. Choice is the daughter of Charles McKinley a successful black own architect firm. Trey is working his way up the ladder in the company, he had know idea that Choice was Charles daughter. After these two start dating her comes Remington trying to block because he want Choice for himself. Remington's father also is part owner of the architect firm MB, so he feels threaten when Trey comes into the picture. This was a good series for me and I enjoyed each story individually and what each author brought to the table. I love that each story took place in different areas of New York as well as dealing with the summer heat in New York. Very appropriate read for me as I'm in New York now in the summer heat lol, I need some of these story thrown my way. Reviewed by (Romance Novel Junkies Book Reviews) LIKE us on fb.

Collectively the three stories that make up “Heat Wave” are enough to start a small fire. This is an amazing read and captures the reader from page one and keeps moving until the last page. All three authors are well established writers in the field of romance and bring to the table a well-thought-out plot that is able to captivate their audience. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good romance with the right amount of steam. This book is sure to satisfy. In ‘Summer Fever’ by Donna Hill we are introduced to Nina Forbes, a NY City school teacher looking for a break from her life in the big city. She accepts her best friend’s offer to house sit for one of her clients in the Hamptons during the summer. Meeting sexy, Barbados born neighbor Ian Harrison is the icing on the cake for Nina and may just provide a bit of distraction for the summer. As Nina learns to come to grips with her growing love and the end of the summer, which will take her away from her island hunk, she wonders can her heart survive the distance. ‘One Hot Summer’ by Niobia Bryant takes us to the world of glitz and glamour and the pain that comes with living all of your relationship highs and lows in the spotlight. After being humiliated by her R&B singer husband, Simone Lovey vows to stay out of the spotlight and concentrate on her event planning business. All of that changes when she takes a job to assist a client’s athlete brother plan an end of summer bash. Maleek is determined to break through Simone’s hard exterior and show her that not all relationships in the spotlight end up as the next scandal splashed across the tabloid. Will they be able to overcome the obstacles that threaten to end their shot at happiness? ‘Too Hot to Handle’ by Zuri Day is the final story in this collection of hot and steamy stories. Getting stuck in an elevator with handsome stranger Trey Scott is not the way Choice McKinley thought she would end her 4th of July. A quick pit stop by her father's office turned into more than she could ever bargain for. When they learn that their worlds collide more than either of them dreamed, they struggle to make their relationship work. Cut throat corporate actions threaten to burst their happy bubble and forces Trey to deal with a past he had long forgotten about. Finding a way to make it all work could be more than either of them bargained for. Reviewed by: Lashonda
