Sometimes I wonder how it really feels to have an instantaneous sexual reaction to a person you have just met That it may just be possible that the zing is really there and you feel it every time you meet with this person The sensual attraction that draws and consumes you constantly in the other person s presence Hmm, I kinda like that feeling And Hot Under Pressure was exactly like that This story gave stranger sex a whole other meaning.I truly liked the plot of this story I loved the way the characters of Ashley and David evolved from stranger to intimate And how they both had to deal with a long distance love affair not to mention the conflicts they had to deal with within their own family This story has really evoked powerful emotions within me when I was reading it because I was internalizing the scenes especially when Ashley has to leave David to get her sister My heart really went out to David Now, I thought this was a man worth loving because he was just so understanding And have I mentioned how sexy from the book s description And I so wanted to strangle Ashley s sister several times in this story She was so damn manipulative and not to mention very selfish Anyways, it was really obvious how seriously I was carried away with the story And another favorable trait of this story that s why I recommend it to all romance lovers the sex scenes were really good LOL There s a reason Kathleen O Reilly was recommended at Save the Contemporary she writes great contemporary romances There s so much to this book it s not just a romance there s character development, actual emotion, depth, and real connections, both between Ashley and David and between the reader and the characters I should note I didn t like the next book in this non connected series, Midnight Resolutions, as much as this one I can t really put my finger on why, though my gut instinct says it s Rose s fault Ms O Reilly is on my auto buy list. My first Kathleen O Reilly and definitely not my last She packed so much into this one night stand turns into something else tale, that I was hooked from start to finish Great premise, great characters, view spoiler though the sister of the heroine was rather one note I also thought the h s mother could have stepped up , but hey, I bought it for the most part hide spoiler I don t think I ve read a harlequin category romance in years I think that I possibly unfairly lump them all into the Billionaire Shipping Magnates Pregnant Virgin Mistress group I am not interested in reading about billionaires and their pregnant mistresses And for a long time whenever I d pass these books in the book store I d lament the loss of the regular everyday heroes and heroines that used to populate these books back when I read them on a regular basis Back when Sandra Brown, Linda Howard and Nora Roberts used to write them.But I read an intriguing review of this book and I thought to myself hmm, that sounds interesting Now a few weeks ago I might have put this book on mywish list and gone on about my business, thinking I d get to it sometime But I now have my book crack pipe with me, aka, my Kindle So in about 1 minute flat I had the book in my hands and I was reading it.Now, at first I was a little shocked because words like Cock and Ass were being used liberally and in overtly sexual ways Back when I read harlequins the word Cock was never used, not even in reference to a rooster But after a little research I realized this was a Blaze and they tend to get a little sassy They even get explicit with masturbation and phone sex I am no prude, I love me some steamy erotica, I simply had to readjust my expectations here.The story is fairly simple Ashley and David are divorcees who are both dealing with the fall out from their respective divorces Ashley is the rock of her family they tend to rely on her a little too much while Dan is bitter over the fact that it was his own brother that his ex wife cheated on him with The two of them meet on a airplane headed to L.A she is from Chicago and he from NY where through some mechanical failure they are grounded for 8 hours The two of them spark immediately and end up sharing a room together Soon they embark on an affair One where they meet up in various cities to have sex in hotels That actually sounds a lotsleazy than the execution of it in the story The story is actually written with a lot of wit and a surprising depth There is a lot of story contained in this small book The breezy, sometimes funny beginning actually evolves into a book with muchserious themes And when I closed the book I was gratifyingly reminded of those old Sandra Brown and Linda Howard harlequins This was a nice, solid contemporary romance that would have had no problems even in a longer form mass market format.I just may have to look up some of her other stuff to see if this is typical of her style or not I hope so, I am always on the look out for a simple good contemporary romance. Not quite a three, but it was OK So the story was OK, but I hated her sister and his brother It wasn t anything special, but it was OK for a quick read.About the audio At first I figured that the narrator was just OK, perhaps new and needingexperience The voice was easy to listen to, but the timing felt off The characterizations for the H and h were fine, but the other characters feltlike cartoons And that is when it hit me About 3 4 of the way through I realized that it was like listening to a perverted Peanuts special 8
