Customer Reviews

I get the book, start reading it...and finished it one day later!
M Carolina Mietta
This one has a great romance, and some good suspense, but not much mystery.
Patricia J. Spear
The characters and the plot all seemed a little flat and one dimensional.
Christina M Susner

Julie Garwood is a ridiculously talented writer. Her novels are always tightly written with snappy dialogue and are carefully plotted. This novel had none of those elements. I really wanted to like this novel because I am a fan of Julie's work. But, I'm just shaking my head and wondering whether she had a ghostwriter for this novel, she got a new editor or if she's just having an off year. Having read everything she's written- this just didn't "feel" like a Julie Garwood novel. It had none of the complexity she usually crafts into her characters or settings, and at times seemed even a little ham-handed and rushed with the descriptions (which is so not her style). Since when is a Julie Garwood heroine this silly or her hero this over-the-top brooding? Since NEVER. It had an overall "cluttered" feeling and there were also some pretty big plot holes. I kept thinking all the way through that I just didn't hear her signature writing style in the novel at all. While it wasn't a bad story by regular romance novel standards...it wasn't a Julie Garwood romantic suspense. I'm still going to buy her novels the first day they come out, as she has mighty laurels to rest on prior to this clunker, but I was really disappointed by this one.

Julie Garwood's stories are usually very good and fun to read. This one is not. It is very contrived (the bad people are ridiculously bad, there are always more than one person committing the same type of crime that could be "the bad guy" - just unlikely, unbelievable plot lines. That takes the enjoyment out of it because you spend time being disappointed at the silliness instead of enjoying the story. While I expect fiction to be fiction, I don't enjoy stories where the author hasn't put any effort into making it somewhat believable. It had potential but doesn't meet it.

I think Julie Garwood is one of the finest romance writers in print. She's one of my all time favorites. However, this book is a mess. It is so disjointed, it reads like her editor was on vacation. I honestly had to force myself to finish it. Definitely not a keeper. My advice--check it out of the library if you want to read it. Julie Garwood is still at the top of my list; even the best writers are entitled to a clunker now and then.

It appears that if Julie Garwood even wrote this book, she never got passed her outline. With more time spent on writing, editing and character development, this could have been a good summer read. The story does not flow, it is just chunks of info strung together, as if it were a romance text book. The author ushers the reader through every description, interlude and exchange. The characters have sex so fast it had to have been as painful for Peyton to have as it was for me to read. I have never been so rushed through a book in my life! Just when you start to enjoy an exchange the author quickly pushes you to the next part of the story. Where were the editors? Where was the author? For Shame!!! Can I get my money back?

"Hotshot" is classic of Garwoods' contemporary romantic/suspense stories. Her hero is an overachiever, alpha male, type A personality. Her heroine is sweet, honest, smart and in trouble.
The offer of a dream job which seems too good to be true, fast becomes a nightmare for Peyton as her new boss turns out to be a sexual predator with her as his next target.
She calls her childhood hero turned FBI agent, for advice on how to get evidence against him so he can't do this to any other women, and just as he was there for her when she was a little girl; Finn comes to her aid again.
The storyline is "busy"; lot's going on at the same time. Garwood juggles the different lines and multiple secondary characters like the pro she is.
As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and will 're-read it, more slowly this time through. I tend to drop everything and devour her latest book as soon as I get my hot little hands on it.
I'm a sucker for her sense of humor, but even more for a happy ending!
As always, Julie Garwood delivers!!

I just finished reading Julie Garwood's Hotshot. Did I enjoy it? Well, yes - sort of. The author created a charming and funny heroine and an opening scene that got me into the story immediately, along with excellent scenes when the h & H meet as adults. The harassment plot was well thought out, and I remained interested in seeing how it was resolved.
The hero was beyond perfect, if that's possible....perfect athlete, protector, lover... I had a hard time buying him as human. The author fleshed out a number of characters successfully. Some, however, were just plain annoying - the cousin Dori, and, to a lesser degree, sister Lucy. Others seemed to slow the pace of the story while adding little.
For some reason, the bad guys never were threatening enough to create much suspense. Was it because they were one dimensional, or because the hero was so perfect? I A little of both, I think. Still, I was sufficiently engaged to keep reading to see how they received their just desserts.
Would I recommend the novel? Well, even a flawed Julie Garwood stands above much of what's out there. If you've enjoyed her work in the past, you'll probably enjoy this one, too - although to a lesser degree. 3 1/2 stars.
