A Heat Of The Moment Thing by Maggie Le Page

Becky Jordan has had it with relationships. From now on her time and dedication won't be lavished on her latest Mr. Wrong-or, worse, Mr. Hell-No!-just the dream travel job which has unexpectedly leapt into her lap. Finally, life is looking great.

Unfortunately, not as great as her sizzling-hot, take-charge new boss. Matt Frobisher is everything she doesn't want him to be, but if anyone thinks she'll risk her career on a workplace fling they can think again. No amount of Superman behaviour from him will make her roll over and play Lois.

At least, that's what her head says. Her heart, however, doesn't do logical. In desperation she finds herself a Mr. Distraction, one with no strings and plenty of appeal. But Mr. Distraction also comes with unforeseen complications. Kryptonite complications, like Becky's sister. And when she shows up there's only one sure thing: not even Superman can prevent the Disaster Fest that's about to blow Becky's life apart.

(Contains one guy determined to win the girl, one girl determined not to be won, and plenty of heat in the middle.)

About the Author

Hi there. I live in Christchurch, New Zealand (aka QuakeZone) with my partner, two children, and a snooty cat who thinks we're all her slaves. My days are spent running around after kids or doing one of my 'real' jobs, so my writing generally happens in the dead of night. (Morning? Ha! I'm a third-generation night owl. Enough said.)

I love chocolate, hate being cold, and am ever fascinated by the possibility of time travel. Obviously, my ideal experience would be to wake up on a tropical island eighty years into the future, with an endless supply of chocolate on hand.

There's nothing I love more than a good chat (except perhaps a good chat and chocolate--see the theme here?). So don't be shy--get in touch!

***SPOILER ALERT++++ I had such high hopes for this book, a really good story line, and at first I laughed out loud at some parts. She had been duped by a man who slept with her just to make 50 Quid, then hung her panties on the bulletin board at work to show he won the bet, ( also where she slept with him, on a conference table). So now she has sworn of men! Enter her new boss, sweet, sexy, kind, Matt. But she is sticking to her guns, NO MEN. Then out of no where, here is her teen age crush, who kissed her and told every one in school she was a bad kisser and had dog breath. She s pends the day with this married guy , then stays the night at a bb to have sex with him. Also I am pretty sure he is the guy her sister just broke up with because he was married.... Next morning as she is totally ashamed, I quit reading, even though I hate not finishing a book. The whole thing left a bad taste....

Becky Jordan has an accident in the swimming pool and is rescued by a chocolate-voiced dish of a man. At home, with her slob of a housemate Jim, she wishes she’d captured Chocolate’s name and phone number. She starts her new job as a travel lecturer and discovers her boss is… Guess who? But they’re both damaged and find it hard to trust, particularly when Charlie, a man from Becky’s past, intrudes. I knew from the first page that here is someone who can write. I was immediately interested in Becky; I cared about her. I was amazed how quickly this was achieved. The incident in the pool is clever: a slight misdirection. Becky’s insecurity in her new role is convincingly expressed: “I’d been trying to do a job I had no hope of performing effectively.” She suffers hard lessons but gains in strength. Maggie Le Page shows sensitivity and understanding of the way people think and behave. There’s a gentle underlying humour together with comic, LOL moments, but it’s not just chick-lit, by a long chalk. I really wanted to find out what happened next. Surprises, shocks, the pain of love gone awry. The writer cares for her characters, and so do I. I wanted to know what happened next, for them to be all right and happy. But do they? Read the book!

Reviewed by Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite In A Heat of the Moment Thing by Maggie Le Page, Becky Jordan experiences an embarrassing near-death incident. A gorgeous, charming man saves her life. Even though she wants to see him again, the last place she expects to see him is at her new dream job…as her new boss. Becky can’t deny her attraction to Matt, but she is determined to avoid a workplace romance. Been there, done that. In an attempt to forget about the obvious chemistry between them, Becky finds a guy to distract her, but this leads to unforeseen consequences that will ultimately have a huge impact on her life.  This book was equally amusing and heartwarming. There were hysterical moments where I was literally laughing out loud and other touching moments where my heart did a little pitter-patter. While the last quarter of the book seemed a bit slow-paced and the ending seemed abrupt, the rest of the book was borderline perfect. The plot was entertaining and the characters were unforgettable. And the absolute best part was the romance between Becky and Matt. It was believable and incredibly sweet. Even though there were intimate scenes, Maggie Le Page does an excellent job of creating sensual moments without them being overly erotic, which isn’t commonplace these days and is refreshing to see. While romance is definitely prominent in this story, A Heat of the Moment Thing is also about a woman finding herself and learning to follow her heart. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read more from this talented author.

The words that Maggie Le Page uses are perfect to stimulate laughter. The scenes are funny and so realistic. There are some wonderful characters in the story that enhance Becky’s life. Characters like Jim and Liz help Becs as she barrels her way through bad choices and worse lies. There are several characters that cause her a lot of hurt. I leave it to you to sort them all out. Becky Jordan has just gotten over an embarrassing interoffice relationship that left her humiliated and for the new year’s resolution she is swearing off men. Then she finds herself in the presence of a real live hero. When the fantasy and the reality of the hero gets blurred, she finds herself running away from him and running into him all the time. Matt Frobisher is a good looking should I say, a very good looking man that has sworn to be a bachelor his entire life. The entire office knows this about him and accepts it. When the new girl in the office finds out who he is, she is so shocked and the more she finds out about him the more enamored she becomes. All the while fighting herself. Then Becky chooses to make a monumental mistake. This is where the trouble starts in earnest. This book is fun, hilarious, and tender. It also made me sad to see what can happen when people are not honest and listen to bad advice from their friends. There is also such growth and maturity that takes place, making it a very emotional book.

All I can say is I'm glad this was free!! I kept reading in hopes that it would lead somewhere and when it does it ends abruptly!

Reminded me of Sophie Kinsella. I couldn't put this book down! 330 pages. Funny, sad, romance, an ending that gives you closure, FREE! What more could you ask for!

A good story with good pacing but the ending did seem a bit rushed.

4.5/5 Stars I was very impressed by Ms. Le Page's debut novel. I loved the quirky humor, the fast pace, the drama. Ms. Le Page's ability to draw you in and make you feel what her character was going through is superb. This was the first book in a very long time in which I cried (when no one died). While as an American, some of the dialect and language was unfamiliar, it did not interrupt the flow of the book (short of having to look up Maltesers). In fact, I appreciate seeing the alternate spellings and different words. Engaging, funny, and not predictable. I highly recommend and will definitely be reading more from Maggie Le Page!

I really enjoyed this contemporary romance with sparkling wit. Becky was a woman I could relate to, facing problems in her life we have all faced - don't fall in love with the boss! What a roller-coaster of a ride we take, as Becky goes on her journey to, not only knowing herself, but finding love. Well done, Ms Le Page.
