Week 31 Review: The Hotter You Burn

From Goodreads:
New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers story featuring a troubled playboy and the woman he can’t resist… 

Beck Ockley is ruthless in the boardroom...and the bedroom. He's never been with the same woman twice, and vows he never will. With a past as twisted as his, meaningless sex keeps the demons at bay. His motto: One and done. No harm, no foul.

Harlow Glass is the most hated girl in town. The beautiful artist is penniless, jobless and homeless. When she sneaks into Beck's home—her ancestral estate—for food, she's shocked by his early return...and her immediate, sizzling and intense attraction to him.

For the first time in Beck's life, he can't get a woman out of his mind. All too soon, friendship blooms into obsession and he'll have to break her heart...or surrender his own...

My Review:
Man, this book! Another fantastic, awesome book by Gena Showalter, and just so enjoyable! This was such a great book, and I really enjoyed reading about Harlow and Beck, they were great people, and they made such a great couple!

We knew a bit about Harlow from previous entries in the series. But this time, we got to see things from her perspective, and yeah, things were not easy for her! From her dad, to the incident that brought her into home schooling, to the way that she lost her mom, yeah. Not fun!

And then there was Beck, who was damaged as well, but in different ways, from being a foster kid, and the experiences at the one place, where the lady introduced him to sexual acts. At 14. Plus, the beating that he, West and Jace did. Yeah.

These where two damaged people, but they built a relationship, even if that wasn't what he thought he could offer, thought of as a cage. But he learned the error of his ways, that was darned sure! Though it took a few extremes to get him there!

Favourite lines: The whole book! It was just so fantastic!

Such a great, amazing, wonderful book! I just enjoyed reading it so much, and now I can't wait for Jessie Kay and West's book!
