Recommends it for: fans of the series; fans of military erotic romance
...And this series keeps rolling along. Another winner, another scorcher, good story, believable dialogue, nice flow, everything works. While the hero in this book, Navy SEAL Seth Masterson wasn't my favorite in the series (he started out as a super-jerk...although he was a sexy, bad-boy jerk), the heroine, former Las Vegas showgirl Miranda Breslin was one of my favorites of the whole series, and her six year old twins were adorable. But the character who almost stole the show was Seth's roommat ...more

You beauty! Another winner installment in this series that I've grown to really like. Loved Seth and his bad boy ways and Miranda for her strong will and her two beautiful little children.

Enjoyed seeing the other members of the group in this too and the development in each of their respective relationships. And Dylan, can't wait for his story which will really takes things to a whole new level.

A thanks goes out to my friend BamaGal for loaning me this book. Thank you!

To be honest, I had mixed emotions about Seth. I kept a mental tally of what I liked about him and didn't. For the first half of the book, the things I didn't like about him were adding up. He seemed to be a little too forward and while I can appreciate determination in a man, there were a couple other things that bothered me about his personality. He simply did not care about Miranda's obligations to her family. She has two kids to care for and all Seth cared about was how to get into her pants ...more

Earlier this year, I read my first Elle Kennedy book, Feeling Hot and immediately purchased her back list and read all of her Out of Uniform series. I adore this author’s voice. She writes such sexy, sexy heroes who are all Navy SEALs. Hello!. Very alpha and cocky, but she pairs them up with women that know how to handle them. They also have great friendships with their fellow SEALs, something I always like. (and by friendships I mean, they are so friendly they have ménages all the time. Total w ...more

I enjoyed this. Steamy sex scenes were good.

Seth is such a bad guy, totally smitten with Miranda. He stalks her but in a good way. He hangs out at the bar where she works so he can scare off threatening customers. If he starts to do something and she says no, he immediately stops. So he’s not threatening her, other than she’s having a hard time resisting him because he is soooo sexy. She is raising two children and has no time for sex or dating. Another problem is Seth doesn’t like kids. Seth sm
Another sexy, good read from Elle Kennedy in her Out of Uniform series. I greatly enjoyed reading this from beginning to end.

I've always liked Seth (since we met him anyway), with his smart, sarcastic mouth, and distinctive personality - he did NOT like kids. Miranda was a nice contrast to Seth. She's dedicated, absolutely, to her two children, her new business, and doing things on her own. In fact she's a bit stubborn about not accepting help from others. She believes that, really, she can only
Yap. I actually go ahead and read just books with highest ratings in particular series. And this one was real good...

I'm not usually into smokers, but loved Seth's dedication to win Miranda over. It somehow worked: both his raugh and soft parts.

I have really liked this series but I just could not get into this one.

Could not engage with the mc's and the only thing I liked was getting a bit of the guys and gals from the previous books.

“What is it about that woman [Miranda] that gets your panties in a knot, man?”

He wasn’t in the mood to be harassed, not when his cock ached so badly he could barely stay upright, but just as he was about to offer a sarcastic response, he noticed the genuine curiosity in Dylan’s green eyes. Huh. Weird.

Instead of snapping, Seth simply shrugged. “She yells at me a lot. I kind of dig it.”

Dylan burst out laughing. “I’m not sure what to do wit

Review originally posted here:

Each story I pick up by Kennedy has me falling further and further in love with her writing. She has quickly become one of my favorite go-to authors for a sexy good time! I will admit that in this story though, she really won me over with the sub-plot and secondary characters instead of the main hero and heroine.

Seth has had a crush on Miranda for longer than he can remember, but she never gives him the chance. He wants more
3.5 stars. My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed:

Navy SEAL Seth Masterson has had a thing for former showgirl Miranda Breslin since the first moment he saw her. Now that she’s moved to San Diego and his mother has ordered him to keep an eye out for her, Seth thinks it’s the perfect time to seduce the beautiful dancer.

Getting Hotter by Elle Kennedy is mindless fluff. At the time, I needed some mindless fluff. Some people read paranormal or thrillers for their fluff, but I prefer romances. I find they clear my palate, like sucking on a lemon. Some romances are better than others and I turn off my super-nitpicky reading mode but the characters still have to be appealing to me.

This book has well over 600 pages. I don't know how the hell the author got that many pages. This was the fluffiest piece of fluff I've

I can’t believe this is book number nine is Elle Kennedy’s Out of Uniform series. I’ve been reading this series from the start and the one thing I love is that while all of her heroes seem to fall fast and hard, the stories are always different and fresh. Getting Hotter features another member of the SEAL team in hot pursuit of a single mother of twins. Problem is he wants the Mom badly but has no interest at all in her kids.

I wasn't really looking forward to this one as Seth seemed really prickly to me and I thought his phobia of kids was odd, especially as no one knew why. So it figures that Seth would fall for a woman with not only one kid, but two.

Seth's actions at the start of the book did nothing to endear him to me. I was appalled when he told Miranda that he wanted her, wanted to start something with her, but didn't want anything to do with her kids. Yeah buddy, that is just the way to get what you want. So

Another HOT one from the Out of Uniform series! ;) I really enjoyed Seth and Miranda's story.

While the story and characters were great, I have to be honest and say I'm still hung up on Cash. I thought Seth might be able to steal my top spot for Book Boyfriend with his bad boy attitude and tattoos, but alas he was not able to do so. I did like him, but he started off as a jackass who wanted nothing to do with Miranda's kids while trying desperately to get in her pants. Later when his reasons for

This was my least fav of the series. Seth was an asshole and even though I found out later what his objections were towards kids, I just didn't get why he was so fixated on Miranda and getting her in bed. Really? He could and had any woman he wanted although who would want him. He was a major jerk. And seriously, could he be a SEAL with long hair and a lot of scruff? I would think they would have to be pretty clean cut. I didn't really care for Miranda much either. She seemed like a good mom but ...more

This was my favorite out of the series. I think it helped that it was more the length of a book as opposed to just a novella. The characters were more developed and their story felt more complete. This was my favorite storyline and my favorite couple from the series. The smut level was higher in the last book, but this one will be more memorable for me. I think Elle Kennedy is actually a really good writer, I am usually pretty much super glued to her books once I start one. I recommend this whol ...more
3.5 Stars. Well written with an interesting plot however I didn't feel as engaged as I did with the last book. Seth was a douchebag for half of the story and I just couldn't rid myself of that image for the remainder of the book. I felt that Seth was too "flat", lacked passion and he failed to tug at my heartstrings, unlike some of the side characters in this book who may turn out to have much better stories of their own.

I really enjoyed this book. Seth spent most of it being stupid, but I'm glad he wised up. The chemistry between him and Miranda was great. I also liked the little side with Dylan. I'm looking forward to his book also because he seems like a really great guy. He's really good with children and is willing to put friends and family before all else.
Christine Diane Paloma
Two stars are for Dylan's moments. I really, really didn't like Seth in this. He was too pushy and too insistent. I get he liked Miranda a lot, but I didn't like his disregard for her kids and how all he cared about was them getting it on. He completely glossed over her situation.

Getting Hotter is the 8th book of the Out of Uniform series, the story of Miranda and Seth.

Unrealistic, unlikeable, and often irritating.
Yes, I know that it is fiction, but still it has to be believable. That’s the point of reading fiction: to escape reality and to be absorbed in a made-up world, and in the lives of the imaginary characters, laugh with them, cry with them, feel with them. I didn’t get it in this story, as I was constantly fretting about that how unrealistic this and

I love this full length format! OK, honestly, I was not thrilled about Seth. He seemed like a jerk to me and my feelings seemed justified by his behavior in the beginning of the book. But, as the story progresses we find out so much about him that you just have to love him...he reminds me a lot of Zsadist (Z) from Black Dagger Brotherhood. Miranda is the perfect heroine for this story. A strong determined single mom who puts her kids and business before her personal needs. When Seth is tasked wi ...more

I absolutely love the Out of Uniform series, but I have to be honest on this one. It wasn't my favorite.

I loved Miranda. Fiercely independent, she's doing her best for herself and her kids. Without the twins' father to help, she works two jobs as she tries to establish herself and build a life for her family. Unfortunately Seth keeps hanging around her and though she's resistant, she can't deny her attraction.

I didn't have the same positive feelings for Seth, however. Out for pure sex, he spent

I really don't know on what to say or feel about this book. Maybe this is one of my least favorite in the series. Get mixed feelings and more in confusion and this is the first time that I get bored while reading Elle Kennedy's book. The POV of the characters also confused me, from Seth to Dylan.

I knew that from the moment that I read this book especially the first scene when Seth meet Miranda's twin kids that there's something behind why Seth is an Big Idiot Jerk. There's something and that is

Miranda rocked as the female character because her twins were always first and foremost in her mind. Everything that she did, she thought about the consequences so it took her a while to say yes to Seth’s proposal of just being friends with benefits. But she gave and when she did, it was smoking hot.

Miranda fought the attraction but only because she had two kids to think about not because she was playing games.

It was wonderful to see the interaction between the kids and Seth develop and Dylan, ofcourse, continues to prove himself at the nicest guy there is, so totally relaxed with the kids.

From the very first moment SEAL Seth Masterson met dancer Miranda Breslin, he was in full out lust. He wanted her in his bed, in his kitchen, hell anywhere he could get her.

I was actually surprised by this book ! For a big part of the book i wasn't a big fan of Seth's attitude. He seemed more about having sex with Miranda than trying to know her (a little at least) and while i understand someone to not like childrens at all i didn't condone his cold behavior with them. But after the revelation a lot became more clear !! and for once i didn't see it coming but it was a nice thing and put more depth into the book.

So I don't take these books seriously. They're kind of ridiculous and over the top, but I find them to be like candy - a little fun and addicting. So when this one managed to bring me to tears I was shocked.

Getting Hotter lets us get to know Seth, the Seal that wants nothing to do with love, romance, and especially children. So naturally the girl that he wants to bone has twins. When her apartment floods and she has no place to go, he gives her and the

This is the book that never should have been. It could easily have been incorporated into the previous or next book. The entire piece seemed to be the preamble to Dylan's story. In fact the plot was a duplicate. Sorry. Total miss.
