    1. DNF at 45% As a reader, you know, even before reaching 15% or 30% or whatever that what you re reading is great, good, mediocre or bad You would know And as a reader, there comes a time where you have to make a decision right there and then I m not going to rate this but I just can t do it I m throwing in the towel If a book cannot hold my interest long enough that I keep on putting it off, putting it off and putting it off says it all The fact that I am giving up on Julie Garwood book, probably [...]

    3. I don t know how I missed this one when I was reading the series last year It was just as good as the rest A unique storyline to the others.

    4. October 2017 Reread and ReviewSolid 4.5 Stars Okay I reallllly enjoyed this installment to the series I loved the Hh, the storyline, and the secondary characters We re introduced to another swoon worthy FBI Agent and strong willed, independent, and feisty heroine with trouble hot on her heels.I know many fans have been a bit disappointed with the last few books.but I have to say I ve thoroughly enjoyed each storyline and every Hero and Heroine I may have had a different opinion if all the charac [...]

    5. I am extremely unimpressed with Julie Garwood s newest addition I used to be a HUGE fan of hers, and her historical novels always work as the perfect pick me up.However this novel lacks everything that makes a Julie Garwood novel great Cliche upon cliche, perfect characters meet perfect characters We have the swimmer who catches up with his innocent ahem VERY innocent childhood neighbor Or, should I say Olympic gold medalist, record breaking swimmer turned PERFECT FBI agent who just happens to s [...]

    6. DNF My god, I had to stop halfway through I couldn t tolerate any of this tripeWays this story is just too stupid to be believable1 HR tells Peyton that she can t file a sexual harassment case until she s been there 3 months She keeps googling sexual harassment but doesn t figure out that this is bunkum2 Randolph Swift is the CEO of the company Peyton is working for Drew, Randolph s son in law, is sexually harassing her, but HR stonewalls her, she doesn t take things to Randolph because he s no [...]

    7. Enjoyable enough If you like sweet romantic suspense with Barbie and Ken playing the lead couple, this is for you There is nothing offensive in it Not a lot of vulgar language Not a lot of bloody gore Not even death The love scenes are steamy, and there are several of them The suspense is weak, mostly due to raunchy cardboard villains.Bottom line, for me,Hotshotwas nothing special, but still entertaining IMO, the best book in this series is Mercy I really enjoyed that one set in the bayou and la [...]

    8. Finn MacBain meets Peyton Lockhart when she s a little girl in the beginning of this book He s 14 and she s 6 Peyton s family is the MacBain s new neighbors and because of a incident with the Lockhart s pool Finn and his 2 brothers aren t allowed over there Just so happens the evening the Lockharts are having a party Finns observes a little girl wander out to their pool and sit down and in a matter of minutes she falls in Finn runs to the rescue when he bursts into the party knocking Mr Lockhart [...]

    9. I loved this book From the beginning when the author is describing the MacBain boys and their propensity for trouble and bottomless stomachs to the very end when Finn proves he is still a Hotshot, I enjoyed every word.Peyton is a woman at a crossroads and looking for a direction in her life After a disastrous experience as a food critic for a magazine, she runs into her old neighbor Finn at his brother s wedding Finn is a real Alpha hero, used to being in charge, perfect at everything he does, t [...]

    10. review posted on Got Fiction BooksThis is another of Garwood s contemporaries and I have to say, I really enjoyed it Peyton Lockhart has just taken a job at a culinary magazine as a food critic, only once she moves up there she realizes that her job is be at her boss beck and call, and less actual food critiquing She makes a couple new friends, but on the whole no one is very pleasant, and her new boss soon becomes a problem Drew Albertson s been sexually harassing the women in the office for y [...]

    11. As a person who has read nearly every J.G book, my opinion is that her writing in her contemporary fiction feels like she s a different person It s normal for writing like painting styles to evolve over the course of a long, productive career, but this is or much less than that.Peyton s choices make her seem like a moron Her cavalier attitude toward workplace harassment and leaving others in jeopardy as she saves herself does not make Peyton cheer worthy She s vapid And the cluelessness of mult [...]

    12. Another contemporary from Julie Garwood where we have a superstar FBI agent mixing it up with the grownup version of the little girl he saved from drowning years ago There s not an unforgettable knockout storyline but the balance between romance and suspense was refreshing and quite entertaining The story flows well and kept my attention I liked both lead characters who were a bit broken but still willing to go another round Garwood has kicked up the sizzle in this one and presented it very beli [...]

    13. I really enjoy Ms Garwood s contemporaries This one, however, was not one of her best Though the couple had some good chemistry, I felt that the plot was a little forced and that the hero was a little too alpha But, I guess that went with him being a hotshot Still, it was a nice fun read.

    14. I am quite disappointed in this book and that s hard for me to say because I m a long time fan I ahve been reading her works since high school and I have read ALL of her books I m so used to reading book after book of great stories from her that whenever she releases something new I will immediately grab it to read asap I just don t know what happened to her writing in her maybe last 2 3 books Hotshot included that her stories were becoming and mediocre It s not as exciting and entertaining as [...]

    15. Loved, loved loved this book What a great couple, so enjoyed reading about them falling in love Finn was swoon worthy and what a strong and great heroine Peyton was Great plot and moved along at a great pace Anything Julie Garwood is always a winner MUST READ

    18. I was drawn into this novel in the prologue but as the hero and heroine went their separate ways, it was mostly telling until the heroine, Peyton, returned home for a wedding I m glad I persevered I was hooked from then on into a journey I did want to end I fell in love with Hotshot Finn, an FBI agent Peyton the heroine was such a lovely character and I was pleased the story ended how it did I had a few queries along the way though, but who doesn t from time to time in a novel One being the thre [...]

    19. I enjoyed this book but I m not sure why It wasn t really good, it wasn t bad either The beginning was rather slow I was waiting and skimming a little bit in the meantime for the story to begin And then the romance part was definitely too quick I believe they have sex too early, I didn t find the feelings between them Then, out of sudden, everything stops for some silly reason and even sillier doubts view spoiler On top of that Finn suddenly changes his mind and decides that he loves Peyton and [...]

    20. I quite enjoyed this romantic suspense from JG It starts when the two of them are children and that is one of my favorite set ups If they knew each other as kids, I like to read about it rather than just flashbacks That way we really get to know and care about the characters and how they related to each other as adults.I thought the mystery element was pretty solid and I enjoyed that it wasn t about serial killers or murder etc There are a lot of crimes that are interesting to read about besides [...]

    21. I like this book It contains several my favorite elements, such as friends to lovers though they haven t seen each other for many years that the hero doesn t recognize the heroine , the hero is a FBI, heroine receives threat, hero saves heroine and some spices.Although Finn is a typical hero who is afraid to love again because of his ex s betrayal, I admire the heroine, Peyton Unlike many heroines who are so weak that refuses to fight back or chooses to endure the threat without report to someon [...]

    22. Hotshot by Julie Garwood is a romance thriller This was an enjoyable read with a mix of romance, family relationships, mystery, danger and a wonderful couple We meet our couple when they were very young Finn our hero, was 14 years old when he saved Peyton, only 6 at the time, from drowning in her family s swimming pool, during a party Peyton always had a crush on Finn, following his Olympic swimming career, as she grew up Finn though never really paid attention to Peyton The story picks up years [...]

    24. I don t know where to start All the emotions are perfectly crumbling down Okay We start from the beginning It s really funny the way JG explains Macbain family I can imagine how the father and mother try their best to manage not one but three teenage sons It is a tough one job, I bet Devin s shoulders slumped What d he do he asked, his voice deflating as he opened the doorwider and beckoned them inside Before either of the Lockharts could explain, Devin turned andshouted, Finn, get in here I lov [...]

    25. I almost never give 1 star reviews and I am very surprised to do it for a Julie Garwood book However, this story was just such a mess The prologue was excellent and I was really interested in Finn s character Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there and that was pretty much all the character development we get for Finn.Then we get to the other characters who were all pretty much TSTL Peyton was so ridiculously dumb, I m shocked she made it this far Someone tries to run her off the road and [...]

    27. Hmm I didn t think this book was up to par Garwood usually delivers a tighter plot with decent character development and fairly good sense of humour.This lacked all of the above.I wonder if the fact that this book tries to bring the topic of sexual harassment in the workplace to the forefront, played a role in those factors or the lack thereof Perhaps Garwood was trying to give it a serious tone That might have worked if some of the scenarios hadn t seemed implausible Things like a someone mana [...]
