Sandrine Tomasson has had terrible luck in the relationship department. She’s just off a broken engagement when she decides to fly to New Orleans for an interview working as an engineer on a dream project. Leaving Manhattan isn’t in her plans whatsoever, but scoping it out can’t hurt. She’s floored to find former flame, Leonce Decoeur, at the construction site. After meeting during the Hurricaine Katrina aftermath nine years ago, their budding romance ended before it even got off the ground. Truth be told, neither has forgotten the other and their chemistry is off the charts, but these two have a past and present that need to be reconciled before they can be free to give their hearts to each other.
I was excited to see that this next installment in Lyla Bellatas’ Real Fling series was heading to New Orleans. It’s a city I have so much love for and you can tell that Ms. Bellatas feels the same way. Hotter takes us on a tour of some of the most loved places in the city and paints a very accurate picture of its unique atmosphere and amazing people. I really felt for Sandrine as a character, her shock at being thrown headfirst back into a relationship she assumed was buried forever in the past. Leo is a knight in shining armor type. It’s clear he’s loved Sandrine all these years and he pulls out all the stops to make it happen. He’s not afraid to be with a strong and accomplished woman. The sex is hot and heavy from the get-go and that’s one thing I love about this series. We get right to it without beating around the bush. The conflicts are real and ones I think most career women can identify with. We know there’s an HEA coming and I really enjoyed seeing how Sandrine and Leo worked through their conflicts. This is a sweet romance with an erotic edge that I highly recommend for readers who want that warm and fuzzy feeling when they close their Kindle.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
