Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The romance in Dimon's latest romp (To All a Good Night) definitely rates as hot—so hot, in fact, that it cools down the thriller elements. As estranged lovers Noah Paxton and Lexy Stuart reluctantly reunite—he's tracked her down to a Utah desert spa forty miles from the nearest anything—and do some investigating to hunt for a killer, their playful banter and lovers' spats weigh down the proceedings. Noah works as a security expert for Stuart Enterprises, Lexy's family business, and he's surprised Lexy at her retreat. What he doesn't know is that Lexy's supposed vacation is actually her attempt to investigate Noah himself, whose marriage proposal she's turned down because she suspects he's stealing from one of the company's big clients. Though she's out to discredit him, she may be more interested in his scorching body. When Lexy's only source, the resort's security chief, turns up dead before he can help her, Noah and Lexy begin a protracted game of cat and mouse—with, quite possibly, no mouse at all. Though steamy, Dimon's latest won't thrill anywhere but between the sheets. (Nov.)

Noah Paxton has finally caught up with Alexa, his missing ex-fiancé. After a diligent search, he finds her vacationing at a fitness spa in the desert. Noah is HOT AS HELL, and he wants to get to the bottom of why Lexy left him and took important and confidential records with her. After all, he trusted her implicitly, and to find out he is wrong about her doesn't sit well with him.

Alexa Stuart has come to this desert spa with the hopes of finding out why Noah, her now ex-fiancé, kept important secrets from her. Lexy gave Noah many chances during their whirlwind relationship to tell her exactly what he was doing and why. When Noah wouldn't admit to his secret activities, Lexy had no choice but to end their engagement and their relationship. Returning his ring was one of the hardest things Lexy has ever done, but she had no choice. Though she loves Noah, without his trust - and her lack of trust in him - what kind of marriage could they possibly have?

When a dead body is found in Lexy's room, she has no choice but to involve Noah. Working to clear their names as suspects of this senseless murder, they will stop at nothing in order to find the true culprit. Who said anything in life is easy, right?

HelenKay Dimon once again has penned an extremely compelling and well written romantic suspense novel with HOT AS HELL. This talented author effortlessly combines scorching hot loves scenes, tender displays of affection, and wickedly funny humor. These elements smoothly blend together to make a compellingly addictive read.

Speaking of addictive - Noah Paxton has to be one of the finest, most sexy male characters I have read about this year. He loves Lexy - that isn't the issue.

Lexy Stuart is looking for some rest and relaxation at a Utah desert retreat and maybe a chance to try and forget her fiancé, Noah Paxton. It's not that easy when Noah shows up, ready to win her back no matter what it takes. But Lexy isn't just taking a break, she's trying to solve a mystery to save her company. When that mystery centers around Noah and with the discovery of a dead body in Lexy's room, these two need to learn to trust each other to solve the crime and find their way back together.

I'm a big fan of HelenKay Dimon books and not just because she's a personal friend. She writes a really good romantic suspense with a lot of the elements that I enjoy. There is a lot of spice and heat between the hero and heroine, there is a nail biting mystery, and a little bit of danger that keeps you on the end of your seat until the bitter end. This particular was not my favorite of hers but I will keep picking her up and enjoying the twists and turns she provides.

Format: Paperback
Lexy Stuart has had it with her fiancé, Noah Paxton. He may be smart and insanely gorgeous, but he keeps secrets from her; secrets like the fact that he was married once before. With that not-so-little straw breaking the camel's back, Lexy packs up and heads off to a fitness spa in southern Utah. Fortunately, or unfortunately for Lexy, Noah is hot on her heels. He's determined to bring her back with him, and he's not leaving until she agrees to marry him again. Arguments lead to heightened sexual tension and when a dead body turns up in Lexy's room at the resort she has no choice but to ask for Noah's aid in discovering who the killer is. Being in close quarters leaves little room for resisting old passions and emotions that never did die. Lexy and Noah's time in the desert is about to get a whole lot hotter.

I have a confession to make: I picked up Hot as Hell because I liked the cover. Happily, this book proves that you sometimes can judge a book by its cover. HenlenKay Dimon has penned a sexy, exhilarating tale with a hero who is, indeed, hot as hell.

I love Noah. He was intelligent, protective, and sinfully good looking. Yet Noah isn't perfect. His past has left its mark on him, and while it causes Noah to make mistakes in his relationship with Lexy, my heart broke for him all the same. Lexy, however, took a while to grow on me. While I understood why she left Noah in the first place, after a while her words and actions were not only desperate, but felt unreasonable as well. Perhaps this is because I also saw things from Noah's point of view, but nevertheless I was impatient with Lexy at times. Yet, the end, her love for Noah won me over and I was unable to put Hot as Hell down because I wanted to see the two find happiness with one another.

Description from the back of the book:
She's mad as hell.
He's hot as hell.
The desert may not be big enough for both of them...

Tell me more...
Lexy Stuart is nobody's fool...not since she wised up to the fact that her fiancé, Noah Paxton, wasn't just sporting the hardest bod this side of the Ironman competition. No, he was also harboring enough secrets to make a CIA operative blush. Little things he never thought worth mentioning like, oh, a previous marriage. So, Lexy gave back the ring--with extreme prejudice--and made sandy tracks straight to a remote desert spa. Problem is, with a man like Noah, a girl can run, but she can't hide. Nor does she particularly want to...

Alexa Annabeth Stuart. The stuffy name couldn't be less suitable for a woman as fiery and free as Noah's Lexy. And Lexy is his--always will be--the tricky part will be getting her to realize it. Of course, Noah's always up for a challenge. Which is a good thing, since between the crazy heat at this god-forsaken "retreat" and the looks Lexy's shooting him (not to mention the shockwaves he's getting from her hot-pink bikini), winning his ex back could be one dangerous mission. But if Noah doesn't survive it, well, he intends to die a very satisfied man...

My View:
For the most part, I liked this book. I could easily fall in love with Noah for the cover picture alone, but more to the point I liked his character and all the complexities that went along with him. I even liked Lexy's brother, Grey. He is someone I'd love to see in an upcoming book. Lexy, however, was a problem for me. Noah and Lexy were together for two years and she agreed to the marriage proposal and then decided she didn't like his secrets. At times during the story I wanted to shake her.
