I met Roz Lee at a conference several years ago. Until recently, I had not read any of her books, since I do not normally enjoy sports romances. After talking to her again at Lori Foster’s RAGT15, I decided to give one of her books a read. I chose Free Agent and enjoyed it a great deal, so I bought Inside Heat since it is the first book in the Mustangs Baseball series. I thoroughly enjoy it.
Pediatric nurse, Megan Long will go to any lengths for her patient. The boy’s hero is Jeff Holder, the relief pitcher for the Mustangs and known as “The Terminator.” She attends a game to get his autograph for her patient. All does not go as planned because when she reads what he signs on the program would not be something she could give to Christopher, her young friend.
When Jeff Holder meets Megan’s brown-eyed gaze, he is immediately attracted to her, so when he signs her program, he asks her to meet him at a restaurant after the game. He hopes she will take him up on his offer.
When Megan arrives at the restaurant, she is expecting to meet an igotistical, arrogant man, but when she huffily explains why she wanted the autograph, Jeff immediately apologizes. He has her meet him at a sporting goods store down the street and has her pick up whatever she wants for her patient. He goes all out to make sure the little boy gets his autograph in a big way and even comes to the hospital the next day with his twin brother.
When the pair tells her what they want, Megan hesitates, but what red-blooded woman hasn’t dreamed of being with two hot guys? While sexually drawn to both men, she feels an immediate emotional connection with Jeff. Can the pair overcome the beginnings of their time together and find the love both of them crave, or will Jeff’s pig-headedness drive them apart?
Ms. Lee’s writing style is edgy with some grit thrown in. Her characters are interesting and the romance is fulfilling. I also found her love scenes extremely hot and very well-written with plenty of emotion along with the hot sex.
Megan Long is a great heroine. I liked her immediately because of her love and care of the children in her care. While she is not what I call a strong-willed female, she has a certain line she will not cross when it comes to her relationship with Jeff and Jason. While some of her decisions created a great deal of emotional pain for her, she was not deterred when she considered what was best for her. Her relationship is a bit complicated with Jeff and Jason to say the least.
While Jason Holder is part of the love triangle in the story, Jeff Holder is the hero. I had a bit of trouble with his character. At times, I wanted to hit him over the head for his stupidity. His internal battle was wrapped around jealousy that in my mind was unfounded. It was clear from the onset of the story that Megan was in love with him, not his brother.
This is a great read for sports fan because the details regarding the life of a pro ballplayer are excellent. It is obvious Ms. Lee has done her research. If you enjoy a well-written manage relationship with some interesting twist, then you will love Inside Heat. Happy reading!
I loved INSIDE HEAT for many reasons - well-drawn and likeable characters (yep, made it to first base), an introduction to the fascinating world of baseball, where "inside heat" takes on a multitude of meanings (second base) plus sizzling M/F/M sex scenes (definitely third base).
So we're sitting at third base right now, feeling hot and horny - what makes this one a home run?
Well, most of all, I loved Ms. Lee's story because it offers more than simply a bit of hot ménage sex against a backdrop of professional baseball. Essentially, INSIDE HEAT crossed over from a piece of erotica into a true love story, and that's what makes this one a home run, in my view.
Jeff and Jason Holder are stars of the Mustangs baseball team. Megan is a pediatric nurse who meets the famous twins when she seeks an autograph for one of her patients. Their developing ménage liaison moves from physical gratification to a full committed relationship in a way that is believable despite Megan's misgivings. But when the balance of attraction shifts to a situation where one or more of these very real characters might miss out on their Happy Ever After, the story takes on a more subtle and complex layer.
Ms. Lee has created three protagonists who all - to differing degrees - find their hearts engaged and at risk of being broken.
INSIDE HEAT delivers everything an erotic romance needs to make it all the way home, with an emotion-packed love story in which the Happy Ever After is not necessarily a given.
I look forward to the next volume in the MUSTANGS BASEBALL series.
