On the dusty outskirts of Vegas, there’s a down and dirty saloon where all sorts of lethally charming—and genuinely dangerous—men carouse to seduce the women who happen to venture inside on their way to and from Sin City.
Despite the many women he’s bedded over the years, Gideon Lane has never been able to get Rochelle Burton completely out of his head. He certainly never expected to see the city girl again, now a successful author, all grown up in all the right places and asking for his protection.
After their disastrous night together, Rochelle was determined to put Gideon—and the things he made her want—far behind her. But when an obsessive fan expresses their anger over her latest book in a disturbing way, Rochelle’s overprotective cousins insist she hire the best bodyguard the Rough & Tumble saloon can offer.
Both Rochelle and Gideon intend to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when the threat to Rochelle puts them in close quarters, Gideon can’t help wanting the chance to prove that some things are better the second time around…
I love a good second chance romance, and I enjoyed reading Hot and Bothered by Crystal Green. Gideon never forgot his first love, Rochelle. Despite the disastrous sex they had when they were 18, she can’t get him out of her mind, either. Sparks are still flying when she has to hire him as her bodyguard. There were lots of hot sexy times and quite a bit of suspense thrown in. Gideon and Rochelle had chemistry in spades for sure, but I wasn’t a huge fan of either of them. If you’re looking for a sexy read with some storyline, give the Rough and Tumble series a try.
