One bad boy billionaire plus one sexy geek equals one hot fling... It's a travel nightmare for mathematician Caylee Reynolds. It's bad enough that her luggage was lost en route to her conference, but when she arrives at the Australian resort and learns that she's also lost her reservation, Caylee’s ready to break down. Then things get even worse. The resort is owned by Blake Sampson―the bad boy who once took everything from her... Blake thought he’d left his troubled past far behind him. Then the sexy-but-proper math guru he’s never been able to forget walks into his lobby. Hoping to show Caylee he’s changed, he offers to share his suite. Except the attraction between them only grows in such close quarters―exponentially. Even though Blake’s incredibly successful—and hot—Caylee’s not sure she can risk her heart again. Not after the way he destroyed her trust when he disappeared years ago. But if she's wrong in her calculations, she could lose everything...
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Reading is a very subjective activity. What you’ve been reading, how your day’s been going, are you PMSing? Everything can alter your feelings on a book.
Her Hot Number is not a bad book by any means, it’s not badly written but sadly it did not do a thing for me. It could be that it was not the book for a gray, rainy morning, but I didn’t like it.
I couldn’t connect with the characters. I found the internal monologues tediously long and repetitive, and the h was seriously bitter over something the H hadn’t really done. I get it was something worthy of pissing her off, but she never gave the H a chance to explain, and that could have resolved their problem way more quickly.
The H was a sweetheart, ok, so he was an asshole when he was a teen, but when he finds the h in a tight spot, he gives her a place to stay, takes her shopping, and I mean, he SERIOUSLY takes her SHOPPING (clothes, shoes, undies) he even takes her to a salon and gives her a new style.
Through all this, the h is “he is so nice and hot and I never felt this way about anyone…. But don’t forget when he did “that”, maybe this is all to make fun of you later” come on! I mean, really?! Enough is enough. So I found myself skimming (even the sexy times) to see how it all ended.
Finally, we know what he actually did, and his reason is so sweet, that you just want to punch the stupid h in the face with a two by four.
The H was way too sweet and nice and hot and sweet (it’s worth a double mention) for the very ungrateful heroin. Maybe for somebody else, this book will be wonderful, for me it just wasn’t.
