Summer Fever by Donna Hill - Ian and Nina's affair was hot and steamy from the beginning to end. I was glad to see their Love grow and they got through all the stubbornness.

One Hot Summer by Niobia Bryant - Maleek and Love's affair stood the test, with all the twist and turns. I was glad to see them make it though all the drama that comes with fame.

To Hot To Handel by Zuri Day - Trey and Choice, Hot, hot, hot. There love affair was explosive. I just love a man with swagger and confidence.

Some Like it Hot

Collectively the three stories that make up “Heat Wave” are enough to start a small fire. This is an amazing read and captures the reader from page one and keeps moving until the last page. All three authors are well established writers in the field of romance and bring to the table a well-thought-out plot that is able to captivate their audience. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good romance with the right amount of steam. This book is sure to satisfy.

This story was ok to me a 3.5 star read. Even though I gave it 3.5 stars I still thought it was cute. Nina a regular school teacher in Brooklyn went to the Hamptons for her summer vacation. The house next to the summer house belonged to Ian, Ian is a successful business man who was immediately attracted to Nadia. In the beginning the little cat and mouse flirting game these two play was cute but got annoying after a while. It's realistic of cour...more

3.5 Hoots for Summer Fever. It was a cute story. The characters seemed real and the story progressed at a good pace. The sex scenes were steamy and definitely felt real. The ending…not so much. The last chapter was very rushed and was too short. I would have liked to see more details.

One Hot Summer gets 3 Hoots. The suspense was the best part of the whole story. I had a hard time connecting with the characters. Love and Maleek both come off as spoiled, it’s all abou...more
3 stars - Summer Fever
This story was ok. You could tell Nina and Ian were in lust with each other but I didnt really feel the passion between them. The love scenes were just so so, and the ending was just so sudden. Ian comes to his senses 5weeks after they departed each other, proclaims his love and Nina reciprocates with no mention of love b4 the last page and a half of the book. This was probably the weakest story of the three, I am guessing this is why it was first.

5 stars - One Hot Summer
African Americans on the Move Book Club
In 1963 when Martha and the Vandellas were crooning that love is like a heat wave, no one knew they were paving a way for the 2011 rendition of a new threesome to be reckoned with. Donna Hill, Niobia Bryant and Zuri Day have penned the novel Heat Wave, and it is definitely sizzling, to say the least. Like a soft, smoky voice over some smooth, sultry jazz, Heat Wave stirs up plenty of passion.

Donna Hill begins with “Summer Fever,” which is the story of Nina Forbes and Ian Harrison and the weeks t...more
These three stories are steamy. These are great beach reads, especially if you like trashy but well written quick reads. Wish I had a beach and a good drink when I read them.

Summer Sizzle. Hot Like Fire. Three authors bring to the pages the summer heat that provides a tantalizing night of passion.

Odessa Nance
The book was interesting and some authors stories were better than others.
Three of the best in Af-Am romance together makes for an awesome read. All you would expect and more from Adrianne Byrd, Niobia Bryant and Zuri Day. These are women whose books I buy just because and I am never disappointed.
great stories, they give you just enough storyline so you don't feel like you were short changed. great characters and interesting situations
