I've read many books by Isabel Sharpe and have immensely enjoyed the majority of them. This one fell a little flat. I did not read the other Checking E-Males series titles first, so I was not privy to the Marie/Quinn subplot or the other characters' histories. I found heroine Darcy to be a little unlikable, but she grew on me. Had it not been for my previous experience with Sharpe's books, I probably would have given up on bitter Darcy after the first few pages. I found Troy to be likable and re ...more

Hot to the Touch is the final book in Sharpe’s Checking E-Males series. In each of the three books, Marie Donovan, who owns, is trying to set up one of her younger friends with the perfect man. Marie is about to turn forty, divorced, and wary; the subplot of all three is her friendship-turned-romance with Quinn, the George Clooney lookalike she meets every Friday for a platonic drink. I enjoyed the whole series and found the main story of this book–the romance between all-arou ...more

Between a 3.5 and 4, but prob enjoyed book 2 best. The last book of a mini series, featuring Darcy and ( I was glad to see) Troy. Darcy annoyed me a bit with her non trusting issues but came good at the end ( as one would expect). Troy did his growing up, with some reversion to his previous untrusting type. As always everyone gets their guy and gal, including Marie and Quinn which was a nice sub plot through all 3 books. A good series.

3 1/2 stars, with extra points for the deliciousness of the side serving of Marie and Quinn. And the well done "older woman" story. And the descriptions of the delicious Lebanese food.

I'm sad to see this series come to an end. I enjoyed all the characters so much, it's like losing friends.

Isabel Sharpe was not born pen in hand like so many of her fellow authors. After she quit work in 1994 to stay home with her first-born son and nearly went out of her mind, she started writing. Yes, she was the clichéd bored housewife writing romance, but it was either that cliché or seduce the mailman, and her mailman was unattractive. After more than twenty novels for Harlequin, and the exciting ...more
