A comic bookstore kind of love.

CC Gibbs contemporary books are always a battle of wills and beds. Guess which one often wins out. Always a story of intrigue to go along with the love story. This is no exception.

Just a sweet, easy read.

Eons since I'd read something by this author, and this may well have been the first contemporary. Although I didn't find it wildly credible, I enjoyed it.

Comic book store owner and artist, Stella, doesn't date customers until she meets Danny. A computer programmer who normally plays the field, Danny isn't looking for something serious. When their affair turns red hot and they find they have more in common than just the physical, they have to decide what they really want out of life.

A surprisingly fun read, this was a couple that actually seemed like they could date in real life. Yes, there are many unrealstic situations in the book and the ending

“Hot Spot” has a beautiful heroine that owns a comic book store so I thought why not. Bottom of page two, the narrator says about a guy in her store, ‘He’d make a bomb-ass superhero.’ I don’t know if I will get passed the use of ‘bomb-ass’ in something that is not a screenplay. However, the character thought it so I might forgive it because something like ‘bomb-ass’ would be acceptable dialogue.

Not so sure about this book. The way the author changed from one character to the next in the same paragraph or even in the next was a bit confusing at times. The plot took far too long to develop to me. And some things were a bit over done to a point where I was thinking get on with it already. Probably not a book I'll be reading again.

So I found this book at work one day and had nothing else to do but read it. Hot spot is not something I would ever pick up if I had the choice. However, it kept me entertained. Not too bad.

So far, this book is almost soft porn. But, there's some mystery to it...when a break-in occurs. HA HA The book's good, I guess I'm just not into the 'porn' side of things anymore.

I think Susan Johnson is a man. That said, the book has more sex and less description than many a genre romance. I haven't found a story yet, but then I'm only on page forty
Jan 14, 2015 Malden rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
This book was ridiculous and from CC Gibbs!?! To say I was disappointed was an understatement. The truth is I did not even finish it - I simply couldn't.
Two & a half stars. Fluffy smut, very easy read. It's contemporary but has less realism than a lot of urban fantasy or paranormal stories.

Another cheap B&N purchase from that same visit. What?? Maybe I thought the comic book store part sounded interesting???

And it all began rather serendipitously. Long ago, as they say, in another time, when fast food hadn't reached our area and the only shopping was what the feed mill offered, I was reading a book that annoyed me .

My husband was lying beside me in bed, watching TV. Turning to him, I sort of petulantly said, "How the hell did this book get published?"

"If you think you're so smart," he replied, with
