Kai is from an affluent traditional Arab family. He is gorgeous, smart and wealthy. Everything Katie's new friends tell her to stay away from. Well, we all know how that works out.
I truly enjoyed this read. Katie's inner dialogue is entertaining. She and Niamh's conversations made me laugh out loud. Katie and Kai are just plain hot together, guess that is where the title came from.
The writing is well done and easily draws you into the story. I liked the location as it is new for me and I like learning about new places. This is the first in a trilogy and ends in a bit of a cliffy. All three books are out so no worries on having to wait.

“Heifer? I’ve seen more fat on the pencil my mammy’s butcher uses.”
“Time seems to take on that slow-mo T.V. effect as his head rises, the sun beaming through the tall windows and cresting his head. All that’s missing is the sound of a celestial choir as he looks directly at me, his eyes warmly reflecting recognition, and – I can’t help it – I beam back like a schoolgirl of the very gauche kind.”
“Well, I’m not saying she puts it about, but her favorite shade of lipstick is penis, if you know what I mean.”
“He was seriously uninterested. In fact, I think his answer was something like ‘if he’d a back full of willies, he wouldn’t give her one.’”
“I’m so out of my depths, I’m probably risking the bends.”
“He’s not bad looking. Shame his pal has a head like a half chewed toffee.”
Pretty Hot was aptly titled. It was smokin’ hot with an extra side of steamy. I reveled in the irreverent and clever humor of this fish out of water story. An Aussie girl and her Irish friend living and working in Dubai of all places! The clash of cultures was interesting and a bit sticky, and at times, rather icky… but I really try not to judge. I adored this delightful story and it was all fun, games, and new experiences until – damn – he broke her heart… which squeezed mine. But hold on and swoon, he frequently quotes Shakespeare to her - so of course she forgives him. The storyline is entertaining, unique, and enthralling. The writing is crisp, humorous, and full of amusing observations. But oh no – a heinous cliffhanger. Arg! I am foaming at the mouth…
With characters from all over the world, this was a truly multi-cultural romance. The setting has a feel of authenticity that convinces me that the author either has firsthand experience with the Dubai expatriate experience or is really good at research. Unlike the contrived conflicts set up in some romances, the conflict between Kate and Kai feels authentic. It is based on the profound differences in their culture and personalities. Alum isn’t afraid of the darker side of lust. There are some genuinely funny moments in this novel, but when she turns on the heat . . . it gets turned on. It’s powerful. I was surprised to find out that this was her first novel. I may not always like these characters, but I understand how they are drawn to each other. And that’s the most important part of a romance novel to me.
It does feel slow at the beginning, but the plot picks up speed towards the end of the book. It ends with a cliffhanger, but it doesn’t feel out-of-nowhere.
With the background established, the hot and heavy pulses and wow, just WOW! Kai is smoking hot, a woman's best guilty pleasure and right up there with chocolate. He melts her and you rightfully squirm following his tongue, er lips, I mean the storyline. It's masterfully delicious and details are all there. I couldn't help but to keep reading. The toe curling, panting breaths and blush red cheeks are fictional here but realistic. The young, wealthy bachelor with drool inducing looks is fantasy but his moves and her mewling seem possible anytime.
The ending is a cliffhanger, but I've purchased it and the final of this trilogy already. I deducted one star for the cliffhanger ending. Stinks when authors do that. Looking forward to more sleepless nights of the best kind!
