I don’t remember a time I didn’t love Crenshaw Bennett.
I tried to deny it, but my feelings grew deeper.
I thought he could never love me the way I love him.

I was wrong—outrageously, deliriously, and beautifully wrong.

One innocent kiss changes my life forever.

Suddenly, Shaw is mine.
Loyal, devoted, and the most loving man on this Earth.

Start your review of Hotshot (The Bennett Brothers #1)
The H could have literally slept with anyone else, but he chose to fuck the h's tormentor and nemesis that bullied the h as a teenager, when she had cancer. Then as if that wasn't bad enough, he gets the ow pregnant and permanently involves her in their lives forever. I honestly cannot understand why authors continuously create and write about unfaithful MC's and decide to call the book "romance." Newsflash, it's not, the very foundation of romance demands fidelity and faithfulness and reading a ...more

"I can't remember a time when he wasn't everything I ever wanted."

Hotshot was my introduction to Ahren Sanders. I didn't know what to expect, but the synopsis intrigued me. And well, yeah, the cover caught my attention too. It was a real nice image to keep in my head as I got to know Shaw. And I really did get to know him. I enjoyed the dual POV that allowed me to know what he was thinking and feeling. I must say the author did a great job of writing the characters in a way that I was able t

Beware of Spoilers!

Star Ratings:
Heroine (Lizbeth): 24yrs old – 3/5
Hero (Crenshaw): 30yrs old – 3/5
Plot: 4/5
Grovel: not enough - c’mon, what does it take to satisfy my grovel-craving?!
Cheating: technically none
HEA: yes with a ‘one month later’ epilogue (seriously, what is the point in having such a short spaced epilogue?!)
Triggers: Cancer, some OW drama (she was stalker-ish crazy!)

Average score: 3.5/5

Best Line: “I’m blunt and spicy. It makes for more fun.”
Hotshot is a hot mess. Although there weren't drastic grammatical or syntactical errors, like in most books I only give one star, it has so many things I hate that it was shedding stars by the second.

First of all, the hero is a controlling prick. And I quote Bizzy, chapter 30: "Because Shaw won't let me". He physically overpowers her during a hugely emotional fight, "pinning her arms above her head and her lower body between (his) knees". He emotionally manipulates her, saying he can't give her

Review by Lisa Kane

Sometimes you think a book will be about one thing and then completely turns on you. At first glance I thought this would be a friends turned to lovers romance. That would be like saying a tsunami has a few strong waves. This one is so much more and the angst is enough to make me reach for my Tums. Repeatedly.

Lizbeth "Bizzy" Hastings first met Crenshaw "Shaw" Bennett when he was at the same chemo session as she was to support his 14 year old little brother Nicky, who

This was so bad. Ow drama all thru the book. I can't believe the heroine stayed with him but she kinda didn't have a choice he was controlling and manipulative. This is one of my biggest pet peeves in books is another woman. Real life offer this all the time we don't need it in books. 😆 ...more

Have you ever read a synopsis/blurb regarding a book and thought, “Oh wow this is going to be cool read.” Then to start it and see that it’s going to take on a different approach?

Hotshot did this to me. I was like this is going to be fun filled and sexy friends to lovers romance but it was OOOOOHHHHH SO MUCH MORE!!! This story was absolutely incredible.

It is a very emotional book that will touch your heart in a way like no other. This story has rawness, passion, camaraderie, vulnerability, dece

This is a couple that is put through the proverbial ringer yet still manages to find a way to stick together.

Bizzy's been in love with Shaw since the moment she walked into his little brother's hospital room when she was 15 years old. He's always been the other rock in her life. But one innocent kiss changes everything for them.

I always enjoy a falling for the older brother romance. This one was a little different since Bizzy had a very st

I didn't catch this one when it was first published -- but caught it last week and was intrigued. So glad -- a really good story with two really impressive characters. Shaw is a bit of a dirt bag at times and Bizzy has a problem not standing up for herself. Yet, I still found myself smiling when they were on the same page. Lots of angst! But lots of heat, too! And enough laughs to keep you wanting more.

I literally had goosebumps reading about the ow and H (which is most of the book).
Not the good kind of goosebumps. The bloodcurdling kind. The itchy evil kind.

The ow is a hideous revolting piece of work. Heinous.
Why is she even breathing?
The hero is a eunuch. Totally vacant. Nothing goes on upstairs nor downstairs.

Obviously the Hxh's relationship was going to be tested.
I didn't expect a cutesy sweet romance with no punch.
I just didn't expect the hero to destroy them.

Doormat heroine, ridiculous how weak she was and how easily she accepted this whole situation!
3.5 star rating

I’m not too sure of how to rate this one. The story had so much back and forth. Truths were hidden. All trying to protect individuals. The heroine was “A Number One”. It was the hero, though, that had me constantly scratching my head. I’m sure that I’m in the minority here, but it seemed to me that he wanted pity and understanding for something that he did and had to take responsibility for. At times he was elusive and closed-off, even when he was the one at fault. And, the perso

This is my first review, and I'm only writing it because this book pissed me off so much, that is hard to describe. The hero is an idiot, using the heroine without any concern to her happiness, betraying her time and again. He's knowingly screwing up their relationship time and again, but according to the author it somehow should make everything alright that he's always getting her the "best of everything", a gigantic diamond ring, and a yacht. The heroine on the other hand is a half-wit doormat ...more

This was the first book I’ve read by Ahren Sanders, and I was totally taken by surprise by it. I’m not sure what exactly I was expecting when I read the Hotshot blurb after my blogger boss, Miranda, told me about this assignment. But I can tell you that I was absolutely not expecting to feel the level of emotion that I felt while reading this book. From white-hot, furious anger to gut-wrenching heartbreak, I felt every single emotion that this couple went through. Oh yes, Hotshot drew me i

There’s not an Ahren Sanders’ book that doesn’t emotionally tear me apart and then ever so slowly put me back together again, making the heartache worth it in the end because the hero and heroine showed they had what it takes to be together.

But I have to admit that the angst in Hotshot KILLED me; I'm not sure if it's the mood I'm in with my overactive emotions due to real life issues, but, I didn't know if I could handle all of the ups and downs of Shaw and Bizzy’s relationship. With that being

Even before I pick up a book by Ahren Sanders I know that not only will it be a hot & steamy read but chances are that I will have another book boyfriend to add to my list, lets just say that Crenshaw Bennett, aka Shaw, may have slightly pushed Finn out of that number one spot he has been coveting for a while. Not only that but Bizzy has just started a new list for girlfriends ;) Bizzy has not had it easy at all and the way she handles everything that is thrown in her direction is rat ...more

Ahren Sanders’ latest novel, Hotshot, is an emotional rollercoaster of epic proportions. Shaw and Bizzy have long fought their attraction to each other with their age differences, but now as adults those difference no longer matter. Shaw’s controlling nature is enthralling against Bizzy’s sweet and reserved nature. These characters are so unlike each other that they work perfectly. Each balances out the other’s faults, well, some of them. Shaw’s past discretions come back to haunt their newl

I am going to keep this short and sweet because pleased don’t think I don’t have a bucket load that I could say …I do but I would lose you along the way, so I will just say that I have been truly spoilt this week I have read some fabulous stories and this is at the top of the pile!
The story spans a decade, Shaw and Bizzy may have in painful circumstances, when they were both touched in different ways by the pain that cancer brings. And try as he might Shaw would have had to have been deaf and bl

Received for an honest opinion.

I'm so confused with this book. I love Shaw and Bizzy as a couple, I think they're great together but what happens with Sasha is so infuriating. I have never hated a character more than Sasha, which I suppose is a testimony to great writing, but I don't understand why someone would put their characters what Shaw and Bizzy go through. I hate Sasha so much I wanted horrible things to happen, which makes me feel awful. I think it also makes Bizzy seem weak when she's
