Review: Too Hot to Handle by Katie Rose

Katie Rose’s Boys of Summer series returns for a delicious double-header—with the story of total opposites who are drawn to each other like moths to a flame.

Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.

Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.

Kristine's Thoughts:

I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! The expected publication date is January 27, 2015.

Too Hot to Handle is a typical story of opposites attract. Nikki is a no nonsense business woman who is essentially sent to clean up and Jake is the fun-loving and womanizing heart of the baseball team. There is instant chemistry when the two meet and the battle to pursue or ignore begins. On top of that there is a bet that is bound to cause all kinds of angst when Nikki finds out.

The story is not an original one and it is somewhat predictable but entertaining all the same. The pages definitely heat up and it is nothing short of sexy. I did enjoy the fact that it wasn't just about sex and that there were serious story lines to go with it. From injuries to troubled kids, there is a little bit for everyone.

Readers that are looking for an entertaining book to get lost in for a few hours will enjoy this one even if it is predictable.
