Romance Contemporary

Cassie Crow has been in Europe for over a month with her best girlfriends and wants nothing more than to throw caution to the wind and have a sexy fling with a hot guy she'll never see again. So when she encounters a hot Scot in a kilt in a castle claiming to be a time traveler, Cassie decides to just go with it and kisses him. The handsome man happens to be Logan Reid, internet prankster extraordinaire, and he knows the kiss he shared with Cassie is his next viral video waiting to happen. Cassie refuses to sign the waiver he needs to post it, so Logan follows her to London, where instead of pressuring her for her signature, he spends time the American lass and finds himself enchanted.

After a few scintillating nights together, Cassie leaves for Chicago, ready to get back to work and finally become a serious journalist, covering important issues in the Windy City. Logan's been offered a late night gig, and the production company just so happens to be based in Chicago, too... Cassie's back in professional mode and Logan's not even sure he wants a serious relationship, but one thing's certain - they both want to see where things go, and they start a comfortable relationship. But as their feelings begin to deepen and professional pressures intensify, will Cassie and Logan be able to make what started out as a prank actually work?

GETTING HOT WITH THE SCOT is a super sexy, fun, and flirty debut contemporary romance from award-winning author Melonie Johnson! Cassie and Logan are a great couple, with a wonderful meet-cute, chemistry that's off the charts, and poignant moments that show their emotional growth. Cassie's friends are all dynamic and interesting characters, and there was a delightful set up for the next book in the Sometimes in Love series. Both Cassie and Logan are relatable in their professional endeavors and watching them navigate what's expected of them versus what they want to pursue was refreshing to read. This is a promising debut from a fabulous author on the rise - and luckily the next two books come out soon! Highly recommended.

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web.

Thanks for the review! Put Scot in the title and I'm pretty much in, either historical or contemporary!
