ARC BOOK REVIEW...Hot and Bothered: A Loveswept Classic Romance by Linda Cajio

Celebrated author Linda Cajio unravels a tantalizing tale of a woman desperate to escape reality—and the rugged loner who’s all but given up on his dreams.

Judith Collier is running away from her life. She needs peace and quiet to focus on a very difficult decision, and except for the distinct lack of any kind of modern amenities, the isolated cove in Baja seems just about perfect. Judith knows that her wealthy and demanding family will never think to look for her in such a secluded spot. But there’s one major distraction: The most gorgeous man she has ever encountered lives in this cove. And Judith can’t escape from the reality of her physical response to him.

Paul Murphy has no interest in babysitting Judith. He came to the remote Baja village to heal from tragedy. Leaving the LAPD after ten years on the job, ending his marriage, and losing contact with his young daughter has left him with a stone-cold heart. And yet, this beautiful stranger just may have the power to shake his foundation to its core—and remind him what it’s like to believe in love again.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Taking Shots, Along Came Trouble, and Hell on Wheels.
Expected publication: May 13th 2013 by Loveswept (first published September 1st 1995)

I was so bored and disappointed in this book that I stopped reading it. To me, both characters were cowards who ran away from life issues. I don't like those kinds of characters so I had a hard time adjusting to the plot and the characters' journeys. I'm sorry.

My Rating:

-Overall : 5
-Plot : 7
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 7
-Cover : 8
