It’s too late to turn back now . . .
From the New York Times Bestselling Author Penny Reid
Four days left.Private beach (…and boat).Not so invisible girl.And maybe less of a jerk-faced bully than originally thought.What’s the worst (or the best) that could happen?
Kaitlyn is finding life outside of the science cabinet of obscurity to be quite illuminating …and so are her pants. When things heat up between Kaitlyn Parker and Martin—previously known as the jerk-faced bully—Sandeke, she places her trust in the one person she never thought capable of earning it, let alone keeping it safe. Fortunately or unfortunately for Kaitlyn, where she gives her trust she can’t help but also give her heart.
But how will the world beyond the sanctuary of their newfound connection react to their relationship? Soon senators, chinless billionaires, and elements beyond Martin and Kaitlyn’s control want to weigh in on the young couple’s future.
Navigating the chaotic inferno of new love might be more than Kaitlyn bargained for, and much, much more than her trust—or her heart—can handle.

By SparklesOh, the angst!! Thank God the third and final part of this story is already out, or I’d have been having a ginormous meltdown right this second.

One of my favorite parts of Heat was how instrumental Martin was for Kaitlyn’s “awakening”. She had been more or less living life behind a curtain and she was now beginning to actually experience it. I loved how she was with Martin and how in return he was with her. 

Once more a perfectly chosen title, the hotness level of their chemistry was out of this world and their sexy interactions left me breathless.

With very different but very strong personalities, Martin and Kaitlyn’s forage into relationship land was bound to be eventful. Add to this the outside forces that seemed set on throwing sticks into their wheels, and man! I was devastated and crying, snot and all, into my pillow late last night. 

Gah! I was so completely engaged and into the characters that I got all the feels. Even right now, as I type this while thinking of the story I’m sporting one sad-looking pout. I just can’t help myself, Ms. Reid’s writing has the power to suck me into her stories and take me along her characters for their ride. I will admit, though, that I was disappointed that we didn’t get even a little bit of Martin’s PoV in this one either. I’m holding the hope that he’ll get to share his mind in the next one though.

Again, these two don’t feel like barely adultish people, but again I do not give a flying fig. I’m loving Kaitlyn and Martin’s story and I’m hopeful I will get to see them end up happily ever after together in a little while when I finish the last part of the story. What? You thought I would have been able to wait a little bit to start it? Ha! I challenge anyone out there to finish Heat and not immediately start the following book. I’ll send you cookies that you obviously won’t eat because you have an iron will. Kudos for that.

Rating: 4.5 “Thank God I don’t have to wait to read on” Stars
