This novel was such a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I liked it from the start and couldn’t put it down. I actually read it in 1 night because I just couldn’t stop reading it. The chemistry between Theo and Amy was exactly as the tittle…ROARING HOT! This novel had me breathless more than once with it’s incredible twists and turns! This is definitely a book that I will read and reread. I won’t say much because I can’t stand to spoil a book, but I will say this…. you won’t regret reading it!

There hasn’t really been a book that I have read by Mrs. Ayala that I have’t enjoyed and this is no exception! I was kind of skeptical at first, I thought it was going to be one of those books where Mr. Hottie falls in love with a beautiful girl & they fall in love, then have some problems & before the end of the book they work those problems out & live happily ever after. So imagine my surprise, when after getting through a few pages, I noticed I might have actually been wrong! Teo Alexiou is, for lack of better word, a man whore. He’s a multi-billionaire and has women flocking all over him. Amy Suzuki is a young aspiring actress who needs to find an acting job, and needs to find one NOW! They meet at a Pool Party, bump into each other, she spills her drink on her & then can’t get her contacts out because she has a nail biting problem and dipped her fingers in tobasco sauce. She tried getting them out & her eyes become inflamed. Teo is the kind of man I could totally see myself falling for in real life, if I weren’t very happily married. He would break my heart but I really think he’s the kind of guy I’d fall for. He’s the bad boy type, out for adventure. I like that. Amy is the one that I can relate to more. I enjoyed that even though the book is an adult book & has those adult moments in it, it’s not raunchy! It’s very steamy/racy, I’ll give it that, but far from Raunchy!

Boy, am I glad this was part of a boxed set, because I would be annoyed if I had spent money on it. I do not expect a high level of believability in romance novels, but this had less than most. I did not care for either of the main characters, and their romance/attraction did not flow or feel at all plausible.

Sports and love is two of the key elements why I love this book by Ms. Rachelle Ayala. Teo will zoom you through his bad boy image. Women loves him with his money and his good looks. Amy is a very sweet girl who is  enjoying life to fulfill her dreams of becoming an actress. Their path met and  passion and games collides. I highly recommend this book to everybody. This book also is emotional and full of adventures.

Once Rachelle Ayala was introduced to me as an author, I was immediately hooked. She has a writing style that makes everything just flow so smoothly and it makes you not want to put the book down. Roaring Hot is a passionate read that will leave you speechless and wanting more because of all the different plot twists that Rachelle has you going through with the characters along the way. This is a story of becoming your own person and breaking out of the mold for the sake of love. The topics in this novel are ones that are not to be taken lightly, so I just want to prepare you as a reader for some tough stuff that have depth and will tug at all of your emotions as you read. Another reason why I love Rachelle’s writings is that she always makes me feel something whether it be good or bad. Now to talk about the characters in Roaring Hot! Teo Alexiou is one of those people that would do anything to make his grandmother happy because since the age of three she was the one that raised him. He wants her to smile and be happy always. His grandmother made me smile when she told Teo that for her 80th birthday that she wanted him to find a real girlfriend. She wants him to find a girl that he is able to hold on to because no matter how much he has tried to find the girl for him he just can’t seem to open his heart up enough to let her in. Okay, so what do you think Teo does? He wants to make his grandmother happy and so he asks his friend to help him find a great fake girlfriend. This just sounded like it was going to be a recipe for disaster. Enter Amy Suzuki. She is a girl that wants to be an actress and she needs a job BADLY. If she can’t find something soon, her dreams may be shattered and she will have to move back home. She is offered a role on a reality TV show and she takes it. Why wouldn’t she? This just may be her chance to get her foot in the door. Teo and Amy’s relationship was one that I enjoyed reading about and learning about each of them. Caring for another person can be difficult and the trying part of opening your heart to another person can be super hard. This is a test of opening your heart so that the right person may be able to get to know you and all your faults and love you just the same. I think everyone has had to do this at one point in their lives and so the story was very easy to relate to as I read it. Trusting yourself and just letting what is going to happen in life happen is one of the toughest life journeys to go through. This book was everything I expected from Rachelle Ayala and then some more. Like I have stated, I am a huge fan of hers and have read everything that she has ever written. I have Kindle copies and paperback copies of a lot of her books. Not all, but one day I will!I am now and always will be a fan of Rachelle and her works. If you have never read anything by her before or even if you have, this is a must read! I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

I was slow to like Roaring Hot. In the beginning of the book I found Amy a bit dull… and Teo was your average rich ass. I couldn’t find much to like about either of them. The whole idea of hiring Amy for what started out as a fake reality show just to get her into acting as Teo’s girlfriend in front of his grandmother was just too far-fetched to me. But… by the end of the book… I was in love. It was almost like I didn’t know Amy & Teo at the beginning and made assumptions… exactly like Amy & Teo didn’t know each other. As the book went on Amy & Teo couldn’t help but share parts of their personal lives and real selves with each other… and as they opened up I found more about each of them that I liked. When each of them would internally argue over whether the other was being honest or acting… I struggled to figure out if I really liked them together or not. I refuse to ruin an ending… but this ending… my heart broke a little bit. From the moment Teo has his accident I started reading faster wanting to know how it would end. I still almost can’t quite handle the crash to the final page. It contained a real roller coaster of emotions. I plan to go back today and reread that part of the book. I find myself wondering how I would deal if something like this ending ever happened to me. And (trying really hard to avoid spoilers) I really want to ask the author “So???? Does Teo ever get it back?????”

Teo Alexiou - hot motorcycle racer and a hit with ladies, needs to find a girlfriend for his grandmothers birthday and one that will be  convincing enough for her to believe. Amy Suzuki - is an aspiring actress who is yet to get her big break and ends up being his "fake girlfriend" for a reality show. Or is it all just an elaborate plan for Teo to get another notch on his bed after she shot him down when they initially meet at a pool party? As the show is being filmed they are both becoming aware of their real feelings and there are several moments when both are wondering if it is real or just for show. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters and like most authours that are new to me I will definitely be checking out some more of Rachelle Ayala other books 4 stars

Hot, hot, hot! Motorcycles are a reminder of my youth. Back before kids I had a Nijna. It was my summer escape (and one scary, stupid, amazing January ride in upstate NY). This book brings back memories of a more carefree time. I absolutely loved reading about Amy and Teo. Teo is an ultimate playboy. He is not looking to be tied down in any way shape or form. Can Amy change that? Does she want to change that? I don’t know if I would want to or not. I loved reading about the racing circuit, seeing the way the team pulled together even when they weren’t getting along. It reminded me of family, and I would have never expected competitions to have such a happy atmosphere! There is a darker side to this novel as well. Amy has to grapple with some difficult choices. Should she go along with Teo’s lie and pretend to love someone? Should she let go of her heart and fall in love? Find out when you grab a copy of Roaring Hot!

Roaring Hot was an addicting read! I couldn't get enough. I didn't want to put it down, even when I had to. The setting was very well described and the characters were well done.  Teo, in my opinion, overcame the biggest changes character wise within the story. Teo Alexiou was always the playboy with women hanging on him. His grandmother isn't happy about it and demands for him to bring a girlfriend to her birthday party. Teo agrees because his grandmother is very important to him, since she was the one who raised him. Teo went from having many women to pretending and being with only one. Part of the reason I felt he avoiding being in relationships was because he had abandonment issues. He's willing to do whatever it takes to please the one person who has always stand by him, his grandmother.   Amy was the typical, want-to-be Hollywood actress. Her roommate, who I felt was more using her than being a friend or supportive, helped get her a part where she would try to romance a motorcycle racer. Amy always seemed to over-analyze and be hyper aware of her own behavior. At times, I felt she acted robotic and didn't really know how to be herself or who she really was.   Teo's friend and fellow racer, Ronaldo, drove me nuts. He tried too hard to get drama involved in what was supposed to be a fake show. He seemed like he had his own plans and didn't care who he double-crossed.   Working and living in a world surrounded by acting, it's hard to see what's real and what's pretend. The pretend ending between Teo and Amy frustrated me. I had thought they felt more for each other than that, but Ronaldo played a part in how that went down. I adored the real ending, or more so beginning, for Teo and Amy.  I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours. All opinions above are 100% my own.

When I started this book I was in the midst of a crazy, stressful and exhausting time at work. I really didn't see how I would have time to read this. The next thing I knew I was reading the last page! This book was just what I needed to keep myself sane and slip out of my own mentally draining days! The tension and chemistry between Teo and Amy is beyond hot. They try to fight the relationship (which makes for a fantastic story) but in the end.....well.....I'll let you find out how that all plays out. From beginning to end this story kept me surprised. When I first started reading it I didn't think it would be such an introspective tale. I loved watching the relationship grow....even though Amy "didn't love" Teo. It's a new year, make one of your goals to read more. Put this book on the short list of must read books and get started!

I enjoyed this romance very much. I loved the development of the characters and that Rachelle used some conflict that I had never seen used before in romance novels. Overall their love story is great and enjoyable to read. There's a particular scene in which Amy is done, quitting, wants nothing more to do with Teo. It's a little sad because we, the reader, know what Teo's thinking as well. Anyway, the next thing you know, he's essentially kidnapped her and they're ripping each other's clothes off. This is problematic for two reasons, the first being that he ignored her wishes and did what he wanted regardless of her feelings. The second being that she had JUST resolved to have nothing more to do with him. They hadn't even talked since she was ready to storm away. This makes her look wishy washy and like she doesn't even know what she wants. Sure, she's conflicted, but she just went from roaring mad to getting naked in the matter of a few pages. It reinforces the stereotype that women don't know what they want. The worst part is, in every other part of the book consent is a huge thing. Like, I seriously contemplated standing up on my sofa and applauding how well she included the importance of consent, and not just the first "yes" but all the way through the entire act. That was really well done, and in comparison with this scene it really stuck out and made that particular scene look even worse. Overall, I enjoyed the story line and the development of the characters and their relationship. We get to see both characters doing a lot of growing up and changing throughout the course of teh book and that's refreshing to see.

I loved this book by the end, but boy can Teo and Amy be frustrating! Amy is an aspiring actress that distrusts everyone- especially herself. Teo is a rich "bad boy" with childhood wounds the size of Texas. Their relationship begins as a pretense of sorts, but whether either of them wanted to admit it there was a lot more there. It's a racy read, make sure you're into that sort of thing before buying. Teo's grandmother was by far my favorite character. I love her no-nonsense caring ways. I know literally nothing about racing, but it was easy to understand Teo's attraction to an escape. I had scripted reality shows, so it took me a bit to warm up to Amy. She grew on me, though. I received a copy for free to review.

This is the first book that I've read by Rachelle Ayala, and I can definitely say it won't be the last! Teo is a bad boy racer, with a plethora of women on his arm and in his bed. But he's a grandma's boy, and his grandma asked him to have a real girlfriend before her birthday. So what's a playboy to do besides hire an actress? Amy is a struggling actress who literally bumps into Teo and can't stand him but also can't turn down the paycheck she's offered to pretend to be Teo's girlfriend. Of course, since they're in close proximity and don't get along, they soon find themselves lusting after each other, and Grandma's wish may come true... This book is full of fun characters and neat twists and turns. You'll definitely enjoy it! I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Teo races bikes. Teo is happy be Your boytoy, but on his terms. Kind of a guy version of a strumpet. Very confident to a point of being flashy.  So he is a tough guy, but he does have a weakness. A woman who raised him has his heart and he will do anything to make her happy (Awww). For her birthday, Grandma want Teo to have a girlfriend. You know that did not set well with him, so he goes out and hires an actress to play the part. Amy takes the job since she has no acting prospects at the moment and bills are piling up. You can expect the turbulence  to soar and heat to rise with these two. There is an accident, and other back stories that leads Teo to want to change the terms of their agreement, but Amy does not want to be a bought woman. Rachelle Ayala steps forward with a few twists that will get you involved with this story... you will have no choice.

Rachelle Ayala has got to be one of my favorite authors. Ever since the first book I ever read that she wrote (Broken Build) I have waited impatiently for more. I think this is the 5th book I have read. This book did not disappoint at all. I laughed and I cringed and I got thoroughly into the plot of these pretend lovers who with the help of a manipulative but very well meaning Grandmother have to circumvent their very real feelings because it is all just an act isn't it? You will just have to read this book to see if this all works out--oh I can't forget to mention the secondary characters who were delightfully crazy!!

Teo Alexiou is at the top of his game in the Moto racing world. When his grandmother makes him promise to have a girlfriend by her next birthday, he makes a deal with Amy, an actress that he hires under false pretense. Amy thinks that she is playing a part in a reality show. Once the acting starts though, which one will be the first to break the rules and fall in love for real? What a unique love story! With the lure of rich bad boy, and all-inclusive worldly travels, love couldn’t help but happen. I could tell from the start that Teo was more sensitive than he alluded to. I think this has become my favorite story so far from Ms. Ayala.

Teo and Amy were not the only ones confused about their relationship and what was real and what was acting, but man, did I fall in love with both of them! Teo is the hot and hunky “bad boy” and “playboy” – someone I would totally fall for in real life even though I know he would only break my heart. Amy is the sweet, innocent one that I could relate too. Those two coming together was magic, but neither one of them could figure it out together until, of course, things go south. It’s kind of like that song – ‘you don’t know what you’ve got, til it’s gone’. I really enjoyed this read and while I categorized it as “adult romance”, it isn’t raunchy. There are some romantic scenes that involve physical interaction, but nothing too racy.

Roaring Hot is an incredibly passionate and highly introspective journey that will leave you utterly breathless with astonishment and reeling from the amazing twists and turns along the way. It is a story of breaking free of the invisible chains that we wrap around our hearts in the name of love and peace. This is not for the faint of heart as the topics dealt with are very real and will evoke unwanted feelings from the depths of your soul. Be prepared to truly and honestly feel the struggles and pain of the beautiful characters that you will discover within these pages. They will latch onto your heart and throw you into one wild rollercoaster ride. I dare you to walk away from this exquisite creation and just try to ignore the impact that it will have on your outlook on life from now on. Teo Alexiou would do anything to please his grandmother who raised him as her own from the age of three. He would go to any lengths and depths to bring a smile to her face because she is his entire world. Knowing this, his grandmother gently but firmly tells him exactly what she wants for her eightieth birthday – find a real girlfriend. This is one promise he isn’t so sure he can keep because no matter how hard he may try, he just isn’t able to open his heart to truly love a woman. In an attempt to fulfill his grandmother’s wish, he does the next best thing. He asks his friend to help him find a fake girlfriend. That way, he doesn’t have to worry about surrendering his heart because when you’re acting it isn’t real, right? Amy Suzuki is an aspiring actress who is desperate to find an acting job in order to keep her freedom and her hopes alive. If she doesn’t find something that’s legit and pays well very soon, she will be forced to move back home with her parents and follow their path for her life. Her death grip on her dreams is quickly slipping, so when she’s offered the lead role on a new reality TV show she quickly agrees to the deal. What neither Teo nor Amy realize is that sometimes life has a way of entangling the heart into things that we were so sure were iron clad and safe. Will Teo and Amy find themselves burned by what they least expect, or will the healing radiance of something so pure and true chase away their fears and show them that vulnerability is worth the risk? I was deeply touched by the grace and gentleness that this story showed in its care of dealing with tough and sensitive topics. These are topics that will touch many lives and will impact them in a very positive way. I can attest to wrestling with them myself throughout my life. Not a day goes by when I don’t have to remind myself to be true with people and allow them to see my heart. Otherwise, I would be glad to keep it locked away and free from any more hurt. That’s not reality, and this story portrayed that thought incredibly well and with a lot of tact. The characters really pulled on my heart from the very beginning, and I felt like I was a part of the story because I could relate to them so well. My heart hurt for them as they made choice that were painful that kept leading them to the same conclusion. They just refused to see what was right in front of their face. Pain can go a long way in taking control of your life if you allow it. It will shield you from happiness, fill you with never-ending doubt, and load you down with needless worries. What would happen if we would choice instead to take control of our pain and allow ourselves the immense freedom and endless blessings of living life as it comes? What would our friends and family think? What would the world around us think? It’s definitely official that I am a huge fan of Rachelle Ayala! Her stories are exquisitely stunning and utterly heart-wrenching, and yet throughout each of them there is a small ray of hope that shines begging to be seen and fighting to survive. She truly knows how to grab your heart and capture your attention from the very first word. I have yet to be able to put one of her books down after I start reading it. It’s almost mandatory that I have to read it in one sitting, otherwise; I would go crazy wondering what would happen next. My heart gets so invested in her characters that I just have to see them through to the end. I recommend her stories whole-heartedly to anyone who isn’t afraid to take a good look inside their heart and see who they really are. Don’t let fear stop you from becoming who you are meant to be. True happiness comes from accepting who you are and pushing ever forward with confidence and determination to living life as it was mean to be lived - with your heart wide open, your eyes looking forward, and your mind at peace.
