“While the bulk of the relationship has been already established in the beginning of the book, Calhoun nicely translates that into a believable romance that sizzles.” ~ Under the Covers

After reading a bunch of books that were less than stellar, WORKING THE HEAT was the one book that got me out of my reading slump.

At 99 pages, Anne Calhoun delivers a scorcher that gives Milla, an American living in London the dream man she has been looking for. She hopes to give her career a boost by engaging her blog readers to follow her journey to finding the perfect man through social media. Date after date ends unsuccessfully and instead of moping around, she goes out with her bestest friends and tries to keep her chin up.

One of her best friends is Charlie, an artist who is also on the rise. Strictly friendly, these two have great chemistry together so it came as no surprise to see Charlie and Milla explode on the pages when they got together.

Anne Calhoun is such an expert at creating these sensual scenes that feel almost forbidden as they are good. While the bulk of the relationship has been already established in the beginning of the book, Calhoun nicely translates that into a believable romance that sizzles.

While I really enjoyed both characters overall, Milla’s constant social media presence kind of got annoying after awhile. I definitely feel like I connected with Charlie a little more.

About Anne Calhoun

After doing time at Fortune 500 companies on both coasts, I found myself living in the suburbs of a small Midwestern city. The glamour of various cube farm jobs had worn off, so I gave up making a decent living to take Joseph Campbell’s advice and follow my bliss: writing romance.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
