Overview

Wanting You by Leslie A. Kelly


No celebrity secret stays buried for long in USA Today bestselling author Leslie A. Kelly's sexy and suspenseful Hollywood Heat series.


A cold case is suddenly too hot to handle
Police officer Rowan Winchester wants nothing to do with his family's A-list Hollywood legacy. Working with the LAPD is his way of atoning for the Winchesters' dark and secretive past. And, right now, the last thing Rowan needs is true-crime novelist Evie Fleming nosing around the most notorious deaths in Los Angeles - including the ones that haunt his own family.


To make things worse, he's torn between wanting the wickedly smart writer out of his city... and just plain wanting her.


While researching her latest book, Evie suspects that a dangerous new killer is prowling the City of Angels. Now she just has to convince the devastatingly handsome cop that she's right. Soon Evie and Rowan are working together to try to find the killer, even as their attraction ignites.


But when the killer hones in on Evie, she and Rowan realize they'll have to solve this case fast if they want to stay alive.

Wanting You is the second in Leslie Kelly’s Hollywood Heat series. Picking up a few months after the first book left off, this one is twin brother Rowan’s story. Rowan saves true crime writer Evie Fleming from an apparently mugging gone wrong. Her self-proclaimed protector, Rowan then becomes her police consultant as Evie looks into LA serial killers and other notorious deaths. I really liked the interaction between Rowan and Evie. They complement each other well. Kelly is keeping this series interesting and I can’t wait for Raine’s book. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Wanting You by Leslie A. Kelly Hollywood Heat #2 Excellent romantic suspense second novel in a wonderful series that I have truly enjoyed so far – cannot wait to see what will happen in book three when the third and final brother will get to find his HEA, too. The dynamics between Evie and Rowan were scintillating, sensual and so much fun to watch. Evie was strong and smart and admirable in ways that made me root for her throughout the book. Rowan was an alpha cop but also a man I could relate to and see with Evie. The true crime novel she was working on and the premise for other sleuthing stirred up a hornets’ nest that was filled with danger. I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book and also have to add that by not reading the end of the book first, as I usually do, I was totally surprised by who the ultimate bad guy turned out being. Did I enjoy this book? Definitely Will I read more by this author? Without a doubt What do I hope is in the next book? * The resolution of who killed Baker * The HEA ending for Raine (the third brother) * The slamming of the door on Angstrom (serial killer met in this book) * An epilogue that has all the brothers and their partners gathered together and settled happily. Thank you to NetGalley and Forever Yours – Grand Central Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Wanting You is an amazing story that has everything a great novel should have. Leslie A. Kelly has written a truly delightful novel with suspense, some action, and lots of romance. Absolute perfection. I literally couldn’t put the book down. Sharp, witty and so very well-written. I thought I loved the first book in the Hollywood Heat Series, but I loved Rowan’s and Evie’s story in Wanting You even more. The romance between these two was combustible, happening quickly. Still it didn’t feel rushed. The main mystery or suspense provided plenty of nail biting moments without being too graphic. I had plenty of ideas of who the killer could be, but I never guessed. What a surprise when he was revealed. Simply excellent! Some progress was even made on the overarching theme, which I’m guessing will be Raine’s, the third brother, story. I can hardly wait. An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Evie Sullivan has a knack for looking at crimes and finding missing information. After her friend was brutally killed and she was the key witness putting away her killer the last thing she wants to hear is this killer gets a new trial. In LA researching her new book and also a possible serial killer getting attacked was not in her plans nor was meeting sexy cop Rowan Winchester. Once Rowan found out she was a writer and what she was writing about he knew he need to make sure he kept his distance. Little he he know Evie has the answers his brothers have been looking for. Now to keep Evie safe from whoever was trying to hurt her and to avoid the chemistry between them. Yup that’s not gonna happen. Love these two together. So can’t wait for Raine’s book. 1 like

Evie Fleming -- True crime writer and researcher, and apparently a crime magnet. Rowan Winchester -- Reece’s twin brother, member of the Winchester Hollywood dynasty, detective with the LAPD. Evie has relocated to LA to do research on cold-case crimes. She is attacked in front of a police station and Rowan comes to her rescue. This book has stalkers, serial killers and rattlesnakes. When the serial killer was identified I admit I was shocked. I did not see that coming. The Hollywood Heat series continues with the witty dialogue and intriguing mystery. More clues were dropped regarding the Great Winchester Mystery. Raine (brother #3) is chasing a stripper looking for clues. I thought this book missed having the supporting characters that made book 1 (for me) more intriguing. There was no wisecracking nurse or roommates and Edward, Rowan’s father, did not appear until the Epilogue. Evie did have BFFs but… just read the book is all I am going to say. 3 ½ Stars -- rounded up to 4 The book was provided by NetGalley for an honest review.

WOW!! What an emotional roller coast Wanting You by Leslie Kelly, book two in her Hollywood Heat series, took me on. This romantic suspense was edgy, dark, as well as being romantic and sexy. In addition there were some humorous scenes that made me laugh. Evie Fleming is in Los Angeles researching her latest true-crime book when she is attacked out of nowhere. Police officer Rowan Winchester happens to be in the right place at the right time to stop Evie’s attacker from mugging her or possibly worse. Rowan ends up being assigned as a bodyguard to keep Evie safe. He also wants to make sure she that while she is nosing around the most notorious deaths in Los Angeles, that she not include the ones that haunt his own family. While researching her latest book, Evie suspects that there’s a new dangerous killer prowling the city killing women. Now Evie and Rowan are working together to try to find this killer, while their attraction grows. When the killer focuses on Evie, she and Rowan realize they'll have to solve this case fast if they want to stay alive. Rowan is a wonderful, warm, awesome guy who tries to lighten moments for Evie, whose job keeps her immersed in dark deeds and twisted crimes. I loved how Rowan was teasing Evie about her fear of snakes while they were visiting the site of some very dark and horrific murders. She got back at him teasing him about his fear of spiders. It was nice seeing they could be funny among the darkness. At the same time I loved how in tune these two were while questioning former and current police officers who were involved with the unsolved cases of the murdered women; victims of this unknown serial killer. Ms. Kelly wrote a dark, emotional, and intriguing story which kept me on my toes, guessing who the killer was, until I turned the last page. I’ll admit I was kept guessing who the murderer was up until the end, and I even ended up wrong at that. I welcomed the humorous scenes that lightened the darkness but emphasized the growing attraction between the main characters. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

This was a great book with a nice blend of mystery and romance. It's the second in the series but I read it without reading the first book with no problem. The story had a nice quick pace and the characters are very well developed. Evie is a true crime writer who is smart, quick and strong. Rowan is an LAPD detective assigned to work with Evie as she digs into unsolved murders for her latest book. Before long these two have dug up enough info to convince them there is an active serial killer in LA. Soon it's clear that Evie is in the killer's sights and Rowan will do whatever it takes to protect her. I really enjoyed this thrilling story and would recommend it to everyone.

Evie is an author who writes true crime books. She was involved in a case as her roommate was killed by a serial killer. She helped put the pieces together and convict him. Now she is looking at another case she is writing about which involves looking at old crime scenes. While she was leaving one scene, she was mugged but saved by Detective Winchester. Rowan Winchester is now a detective in LA, but before that he was part of Hollywood as a childhood actor along with his brothers. Rowan has secrets that he doesn't want to see in a book by Evie. Meanwhile, Evie is in danger from a serial killer but who is it and why? This book is incredibly good. Not just a romance but a thriller and murder mystery. Everything comes together completely. I want to read much more from this author. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no other compensation.

We met Rowan in the first book and in this story, we get to know him better. Even though he and his brother are twins, they are nothing alike except they are both all about their family. Rowan saves a woman from a mugger and helps her out afterwards. When she finds out who he is, she starts talking about the one subject that is off limits. It is too bad, because he was very attracted to her. When he is assigned to help her with her research, they find that someone, besides Rowan and his family, doesn't want her digging into some old cases. She is looking into a lot of old cases, so she isn't sure which one it is. As the danger closes in, they become closer and Rowan isn't about to lose her to some serial killer.
