The death of their mother affected each of the Nelson boys differently and shaped them into the men they are today. Fox is one messed up man, no doubt about it! He has lived his life driven by a guilt he should not bear, and he tries to compensate for it in everything he does. He has a dangerous job that allows him to protect people, but it could end his life at any given moment when he is out on the fire line. He is always angry, at times he is not sure life is worth living, and he pushes the envelope right to the very edge.
Delilah has been his constant companion, best friend, rock and support since they were 6 yrs old. Over the years, she fell in love with him but knows he doesn’t feel the same, so he is about the only one who doesn’t know it. Now his new girlfriend Julie is the first woman Fox seems to be contemplating something long term with, and it rocks Del’s world. Her friends and her mom try to encourage her to speak up before it is too late but she is afraid to destroy their friendship with an admission of unrequited feelings.
Julie sees what they don’t and forces Fox to face his feelings for Del head on. He loves her in his own way, but is he in love with her? He isn’t sure he knows what that means, but he knows how she affects him.
She was always something separate, the girl next door, a light that would always lead me out of the black. She was my saving grace and the one constant thing I had in my life, the one person who could turn things around.
After one alcohol-fueled but very hot encounter, they both have to face reality and decide how to move on. Fox is willing to admit he has some strong feelings for Del but he isn’t willing to call it love just yet. Friends with amazing benefits? Hell yes. Love? Well, he will have to get back to everyone on that. The question is if Del can live with that.
Remember that assessment of him being one messed up man? Those demons haunt him constantly, and his method of dealing with them is more like trying to cram them into a corner to be suppressed by any means necessary- and his coping mechanisms are going to start catching up to him soon.
Del is happy that he is opening up to her a little, but she is still worried about so much. She can’t always be his shelter from the storm of emotions he hides, and she worries that it will catch up to him when he is on the job. She worries about what the future holds and whether she will ever have his heart in addition to his body. And when one more revelation rocks her world, she worries whether he will abandon her completely before the storm passes.
While one part of this story was expected, there was so much that wasn’t! I suspected what Del’s secret was going to be and seriously debated if I wanted to read another story in that trope. I love Ms. Halle’s books though and was pleasantly surprised by the way it was handled along with how Fox’s issues are resolved. Hot Shot is one heckuva emotional roller coaster, and it is a great wrap to the series. We get a wonderful epilogue that gives us a peek into the future of Del, Fox and the whole Nelson family too.
This was a friends to lovers story about Delilah and Fox. Delilah has been in love with Fox since she was a little girl. Fox knows that Delilah is one of his favorite people in the world but he has so many demons of his own that he doesn't look at her that way.
Ok, where do I start with this one... I really liked Delilah. Like REALLY liked her. I think that she was an amazing character. She was strong, she worked hard to be happy for Fox and honestly wanted him to be happy. She was hurting and it was getting harder and harder for her to deny her feelings for him. She has a great relationship with her mother, and Fox's family and her relationship with Fox is great. I think that was was extremely level headed about things and honestly my heart just broke for her. I wanted so bad for her to get everything that she wanted. I don't feel that she was whiny, or unreasonable. She just wanted to be loved and she is right everyone deserves to be loved.
Fox, okay, I have to be honest, I liked him. He truly had a big heart, but he was lost. He was hurting and he was struggling with his mother's death and with his own form of depression. My heart hurt so bad for him. I wanted to rail at him at times, but coming from where he was, I can see where he struggled and why he he struggled. (I don't want to give away details) I think that he was as strong as he could have been, he didn't know how to cope with things and I think that Ms. Halle did an amazing job relaying his struggles. It was like I was in his head the entire time while things were spiraling out of control. It was just heart breaking.
This book really, really hit way close to home. I had moments were I was actually sobbing because it opened my eyes to another side of depression. The destruction of those left behind. I don't typically go into details about my personal life, but I struggled with postpartum depression. Thankfully I was able to get help, but for me to read about the children and family left behind was gut wrenching. I have to congratulate the author on opening my eyes and dealing with the repercussions of this subject. Most just gloss over things but I felt that she did an outstanding job in dealing with things and not brushing it under the rug. It was a very, very emotional read for me, but at the same time the ugliness and rawness of the emotions made for a beautiful story that gives you that HEA that we all long for.
I think the strength of her characters, and the supporting characters helped her pull this story off. This was an extremely well written story, with some funny parts here and there and an adorable squirrel to throw in. The pacing and flow of this book was excellent, I couldn't put this down. I read it entirely in one setting. The depth of the characters was suburb. You can't pull of this emotional of a book without the depth that Ms. Halle was able to achieve. This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone (I haven't read any before this one and understood what was going on).
This is currently one of my top reads so far of this year and I highly recommend this book. I plan to go and devour more of Karina Halle's books. This was a very emotional book but like I said, I loved it and I can't wait to read more from Ms. Halle.
