#Review #Romance Hot Item by Carly Phillips

Title: Hot Item
Author: Carly Phillips
Rating: 4 stars

Last week my husband and I went to a book sale at our local library and I picked up this book. I've seen Carly Phillips books many times, but I'm fairly sure this is the first one I've read. Why I waited so long, I have no idea. 

I really enjoyed Riley and Sophie. They were a good compliment to each other. My only complaint was that I really wanted to see more of them. The romance moved very quickly and for what was there it was believable. These two have known each other for a while, so it wasn't as if they were complete strangers who fell in love over night but it did happen fairly quickly. I would have liked to have seen it slowed down just a little. 

There was also quite a bit of head-hopping and another romance that gets thrown into the story. I thought the side story between Cindy and Miguel, was interesting, but I'm not sure it was necessary to move the plot along. It did, however, keep me guessing as to whether or not Miguel was responsible for the trouble at the sports agency where Sophie worked.

This was the third book in the series, but I didn't feel lost even though I hadn't read the first two books. 

I really enjoyed this book and will most likely read more by this author in the future. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced contemporary romance.
