This is the last straw and she knows something has got to change and quickly if she’s going to make it. Trying to be a good friend, her best friend hooks her up with a dancing job at a local gentleman’s club. Little does she know that this job is about to change her life big time…and not necessarily for the better. Her first night on the job is a huge success. It’s such a success that she gets her first private client. Harrison Yates is sexy and irresistible. Sam knows it’s against all the rules to get close to him but there is something about him that she just can’t ignore. And when he continues to come back over and over for private dances from her she decides to throw caution to the wind and go for it. But Harrison Yates has secrets. Secrets that just might cause Sam to wind up in deeper trouble than she’s ever found herself in before.
A Little Too Hot is Lisa Desrochers’ third book in her A Little Too Far series. It follows the evens in Samantha West’s life. Sam is the former best friend of Lexie and former girlfriend of Trent, Lexie’s stepbrother whom she’s now engaged to. To say Sam is bitter of that turn of events is putting it mildly. And her destructive path is understandable but I have to say, I couldn’t really be that sympathetic of her plait. To me she often came off as being a selfish brat who just expected everything to go her way. I unfortunately couldn’t connect to this story. It wasn’t a terrible story, but when I can’t connect to the characters I have a hard time loving the story. I think Desrochers was going for a racier type of story here and it fell a bit short in my eyes. Most of what the characters felt for eachother appeared to be lust rather than actual love. And maybe it’s because I’m a hopeless romantic at heart, I wanted the romance rather than the lustful encounters. If you like lust, then you’ll most definitely like this book. It’s sexy and racy and will give you shivers in a good kind of way. Both Sam and Harrison are hot and hot for eachother. The sexual tension between them builds and builds through the story. And just when you think you can’t take it anymore, they succumb to their desires. Add in a bit of danger into all that hotness and you have the makings of a nice little story. Overall, this wasn’t a bad read, but ultimately since I couldn’t relate to the characters, I was left a bit wanting. Can’t wait to see what Lisa Desrochers puts out next. I hope I like it as much as her other books.
