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!
Kate, the Aussie girl, sporting a wicked broken heart flees to Dubai to be with her best friend. Niamh, the funny wise-cracking best friend is full of support and advice.
“Look at it this way, you have a do-over, a place to begin again. Be who you want to be, do what, or who you want to do”.
Although Kate appreciates the support she has sworn off men for the time being. Her plan is to work, heal, and enjoy this beautiful country she is in. Having never left Australia, except for the vacation or two, she wants to enjoy her time away from everything. From the cheater.
Kai, the devilishly handsome local with eyes that smolder and abs that make one swoon. Handsome. Rich. Playboy. All the things that make a bad boy look so good. He always gets what he wants and won’t stop until he gets it. A chance encounter that includes a fall from a ladder leaves Kate falling right into Kai’s arms and on his radar from that point on. He has to have her. He needs to have her.
Kate and Kai find a passion so hot it could light the bedsheets aflame. His mere tough has Kate’s iron will to swear off men crumbling more with each encounter. Kai takes her over the edge in more ways than she could ever imagine. She becomes a different person with him. A more emboldened Kate and she kind of loves it. Can she just keep it casual? What exactly are they doing together? Does Kai just have eyes for Kate? What does he want from her?
This story had a slow start. However, the background story was completely necessary for the plot line. Once the story picked up it was a complete page turner. It had me on the edge of my seat as I was reading with the lewdest internal dialogue going along in my head. The book ended in a major cliffhanger which made me grateful it is part of a trilogy. It definitely left me wanting, no needing more. I will note that some of the cultural references or “slang” terms I didn’t understand; however, I was able to understand the gist of what was said. Overall, artfully written and intensely descriptive in all the best ways.
“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…
