ARC Review + Giveaway: Still Hot For You by Diane Escalera
Still Hot For You
Book Info

Released: March 19, 2012
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Five years into her marriage with Dylan and Shay is feeling like they are in a rut. Since their wild days as young people in love, Shay wants to rekindle that spark they used to have. Though Dylan and Shay are well off now, Shay wants a baby in her life. However, Dylan isn’t ready for one. His contracting business is just taking off and with it are Dylan’s aspirations of making this a successful business so that he and Shay can live a comfortable life without financial worries.

In a desperate attempt to end this lack of communication phase between them, Shay turns up the heat by going back to the things they loved before things got too series and complacent. Shay adds adventure and fire back into their relationship by doing simple things that shows her appreciate for Dylan again.

I found that Shay was a very likeable character. She was strong and determined, learning what the problem was in their relationship and addressing that problem directly. I liked that in addition to the heat she brought back into the relationship, they also were successful in solving the problem that made them drift apart from one another.

The good thing about the characters in this book is that they aren’t bitter, nor do they fully blame the other for the distance they both caused in their relationship. It was interesting to see how Ms. Escalera put these two strong characters together and made them work for their relationship. The fact that they are willing to hash things out between themselves makes me love this book even more!

In addition to the great building of trust and emotion is the fact that Dylan is super hot. I just adore Diane Escalera’s heroes! She has a knack for creating heroes that you can’t help but drool over. Dylan is the perfect blend of bad boy and charming gentleman, making me wish that he was real so I can snatch him for myself.
Needless to say, this short story packed a lot of heat! It was sexy and teasing, giving just the right amount of sizzle to keep readers wanting more.

STILL HOT FOR YOU is passionate and sizzling, an engaging, beautiful story of two people who got the lucky chance to fall in love twice.

  1. I love “marriage in trouble” stories! There are not nearly enough stories like that written. They all end when they get married and I really enjoy to see how they make things work. It’s so nice to see one of them!
