The first book of the Razor Bay series came out a year back and it introduced us to the hero Max, the half brother of Jake Bradshaw.

Max is a deputy sheriff and he is generally a man of few words. He had to spend his childhood with a mother who wouldn't let the past go, harping on his father who walked out on them for Jake's mother. As kids Max and Jake didn't get along but adulthood and Jake's return is changing all of that.

Harper Summerville is a gypsy, she roams all around the

Much like the other book I've read by Andersen, this one was good enough to keep me reading, but not good enough to interest me in reading anymore of her books. She comes up with interesting situations and compelling relationship dynamics, but the details in the execution just don't quite work. In this case our heroine Harper Summerville is a rolling stone, spending the summer in Razor Bay to teach yoga and lead excursions at the local inn. Max Bradshaw on the other hand, is a Razor Bay native, ...more

When dour and somber deputy Max Bradshaw meets rolling stone Harper Summerville it is certainly a fun ride. Book two in the Razor Bay series I think was better than the first. Both the hero and heroine are likable. After the last few books I've been reading, this is a change of pace! No the characters aren't too perfect. They have flaws and real issues to overcome. A good read all the way around. I just wish the next book was already here!

This was a good second book in the series. In this book you get to find out more about Harper and why she has moved to Razor bay. We also get to find out alot more about Max and how he works with the troubled boys. It was a good story and gave me an update on the characters from the first book but did not find it kept me as hooked as the first book in the series. A good light story but not sure if I will continue in the series. xx

This is not one of my favorite Susan Andersen books. Although the hero and heroine are totally likeable and the setting was pleasant, it did not have a plot or conflict that I found particularly interesting. The couple are totally in to each other from the moment they meet. And the conflict seems to be mostly that he does not like rich girls and she does not intend to stick around in town. She is in town "undercover" to check out a local home for teenage boys for her family charitable foundation ...more
I enjoyed this. I guess it's the second in a series. But aside from missing how relationships were formed, I felt I was missing nothing. This was just a nice, fun contemporary read. I don't read a ton by this author, but I generally enjoy what I do read. Recommended!

I loved all the characters & the location of this series, and that each character remained active in each story.

Harper was the perfect match for Max to bring him out of shell and help him get past his childhood and have a reason to smile.

non riesco a capire come Susan mi abbia affascinata tanto in "Seduzione corpo a corpo" e mi lasci totalmente fredda in questo romanzo. troppi personaggi, poco calore, dispersivo e noioso, insomma davvero pessimo. peccato perchè speravo tanto in un'altra bella aggiunta alla mia libreria

Going to have to dnf this one too. I'm quitting at the pancake breakfast, which is as relevant to this story as a snowflake in hell. I came for a romance and this so far didn't deliver. I don't have time to wait. I'm bored and already did a hefty amount of skimming, so I'm done. Gave up at 11%.

Growing up, there was nothing Harper Summerville loved better than travelling with her father. Something she continued doing even after he passed away. But now her job had landed her in Razor Bay, Washington, and she had to admit, the place had just about everything you could want in beautiful surroundings. Water, trees, mountains and the delectable body of a certain deputy sheriff she wouldn't mind getting a closer look at.

I know I love Susan Andersen. I have read all of her books back to when she was doing pseudo-mystery/romance. I always find it so bad for me that she does not write more frequently enough to put out multiple books per year. That is why I horde her books and that is why I wait so long between books and I think I forget just how enjoyable a read she does put out. This book takes us back again to Razor Bay and it's quaint town, lively folks and once again we see Max Bradshaw, the brooding, hulking ...more

Je ne lis que très peu de roman MF (que je sélectionne avec soin la plupart du temps), car j’ai toujours peur de la déception… Ces romans sont souvent délivrés avec une héroïne à la limite du supportable …. Et avec le héros, qui est quasiment toujours dépeint comme le plus beau gosse de la Terre !
Dans celui-ci, point de cela, Harper, est une fille simple, sans chichi, naturelle, généreuse qui ne tourne pas autour du pot ! Elle veut quelque chose !

My. Review

4 stars
Some Like it Hot is the second book in the Razor Bay series. I like this series. Their are a couple of love scenes towards the end that I skipped over. A little swearing. characters that I liked. Some humor and mostly dealings with relationships between half brothers, new couple and girl friends and the community.
Max Bradshaw is a deputy in Razor Bay. He has just started the last few months getting to know his half brother Jake as a brother instead of old habits in their youth.

I have read Susan Andersen since she started writing and she never disappoints. Her latest book, Some Like It Hot, is the second one in her Razor Bay series. This book tells the story of Harper and Max a couple who are definitely looking for different things in life. Harper grew up in a world traveling family and cannot imagine putting roots down in one place. Her desire to be a rolling stone has put her at odds with her mother and brother who prefer a more grounded life after years of moving fo ...more

Quick sweet beach read. I liked Some Like It Hot but, if I'm to be honest, it isn't one of my favorites by Susan. I haven't read book one, so I am unable to compare the difference in the way Max and Harper acted in that book compared to this one. However, just an FYI, you can read this as a standalone. I didn't feel the least bit lost. With that, I enjoyed the characters on an individual level; I just couldn't quite grasp the feel of them together. Their chemistry sometimes fell kind of flat and ...more

Harper Summerville has had a wanderlust her entire life, and her job checking out charities for her family's foundation has been a good fit for her. When she gets to Razor Bay, Washington, she can't deny that the scenery is beautiful and relaxing and that the people she meets are welcoming.

I read this book quickly. Not because it was bad or because it was the best I've ever read per se, but there was a good flow to the book. My issue with this book was two-fold: 1) not enough character depth between the leading lady and gent and 2) wishy washy 'i love you, but there's some problem'.

1) To be honest, I felt like there was way more depth and understanding between the ladies of this group at the end than I did between Max and Harper. I felt like the beginning of the book did a great

An author known for her ability to evoke place in her books, Andersen vividly and visually presents Razor Bay, and her affection for the Pacific Northwest comes through clearly. Max lives up to the promise of a rough-edged hero in need of a healing touch that won readers’ interest in Jake and Jenny’s story (That Thing Called Love). He’s my favorite kind of wounded hero: he has some heavy emotional baggage, but he’s trying to move past it, nor drown in it. I had a more difficult time understandin ...more

This was not my favorite of Ms Anderson’s books. However, by no means was it a bad book. It just didn’t grab me by the throat right away like some of her other books do. This book is part of a series/trilogy yet can be easily read as a stand-alone novel.

Ms. Anderson really doesn’t dwell too much on past story-lines for a new reader to have any difficulty with the book, plot line or even the characters themselves. This book does set up quite nicely for the next in the series and the next book ap

After reading the first book it was nice to have Max’s story, and it was also good to read more from the previous characters and how they were getting on etc.

I did like the character of Harper, even if in the end I thought of views were completely skewed and her bad relationship with her mother was pretty much her own fault. Max was the more likeable of the two, but maybe that’s because we had some of him in the previous book and so it was nice to get more of a background on him and his personal

The first book in this series was Max’s brother Jake’s book and I enjoyed that one. I enjoyed it well enough that I was curious about this story. While I’m not particularly pissed off that I read this book, I wasn’t exactly blown away by it either. I liked Max and Harper fine. I just wasn’t as wrapped up in their story as I had hoped to be. The story itself was fine, the characters were fine. Max and Harper were fine…but that was it. It was easy to put this book down and read other things, which ...more

Ever since reading “That Thing Called Love” (Razor Bay #1) I have waited for Max’s story. He had such a gentle giant type feel to him and I was not disappointed with his story.

Max is not as soft spoken as he was in the first book. He opened up right away which I would have loved a bit more of a slow opening up but considering the things we really saw him be himself on where things like the boys club it seemed to work. And Harper... well honestly I liked
