Body Heat (Simply Series #4) by Carly Phillips

The sizzling reader-favorite tale in book four of New York Times
bestselling author Carly Phillips's Simply series

Night after night, Brianne Nelson has fantasized about the sexy stranger she met at the
café where she works part-time. Never in her wildest dreams did she
imagine that he'd turn out to be a client for her “real” job as a
physical therapist—or how much better Jake would look with his
clothes off!

Thanks to his wealthy sister, injured detective Jake
Lowell is the recipient of Brianne's personal services for the next
month. Determined to get well enough to go after the guy who shot him,
Jake is in desperate need of Brianne's healing touch. But when the
“therapy” sessions evolve into something a little steamier, Jake and
Brianne are in for a reality that makes their hottest fantasies look
like child's play.

Overly descriptive, overwrought and lacking heat. It's bad enough that there are two pages devoted to one person's face but what do phrases like 'emotionally conscious' mean? This book is filled with similarly meaningless phrases, incomprehensible dialogue and despite the title is neither hot in the erotic sense, emotionally stirring nor mentally stimulating. The heroine feels inexplicable emotions that seem to come from nowhere. She imagines slights that leaves you flipping back to previous pages in an attempt to understand their source. This gets two stars because it's not the worst thing I've come across but far far the best.

New York City may be hotter than a matchstick, but to injured police detective Jake Lowell the temperature is below freezing when compared to his BODY HEAT. Jake¿s takes nightly visits to The Sidewalk Cafe not so much because of the food or service, but because he cannot takes his eyes, mind, or libido off of waitress Brianne Nelson.

Though a sexy woman often accompanies him, Brianne returns Jake¿s fantasies, especially late at night. She has no social life as she works during the day as a physical therapist and the night on waiting tables. However, Jake¿s beautiful companion turns out to be his sister Rina and she hires Brianne to provide her brother with physical therapy on his damaged shoulder.

Rina performs matchmaking magic as she manages to turn Brianne and Jake into roommates at least for the summer. Soon Brianne and Jake raise the heat between them even further, but she has obligations and he has one failed marriage already plus a need to capture the individual who killed his partner during the incident in which he hurt his shoulder. Now she is in danger because his target has a new victim to use against Jake.

BODY HEAT is more than a spoonful of love during a summer in the city. The tale is torrid as Carly Phillips skillfully employs massage techniques to ignite the plot. The story line contains suspense elements, but truly belongs to the relationship between the lead characters that keep readers erotically aroused just by the way Jake and Brianne look at one another let alone a massage or two. Keep that significant one handy.
