Electrifying chemistry, two wounded hearts finding their perfect match in an unconventional way...a one night stand... against a wall in a bar... The chemistry was definitely not the issue, it was all the other stuff and boy did that make for some marvelous storytelling.

I received this ARC copy of Hot & Heavy from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept. This is my honest and voluntary review. Hot & Heavy is set for publication July 17, 2018.

I loved this one! Shawn is such an easy character to love and Sage, while she was a bit uptight, I was happy to see her play hard to get. Not that she was playing. Her insecurities made it look like she was only partially interested. It worked for me because I just love it when a heroine makes the player type hero really work for it. Shawn and Sage both deal with some past baggage but it didn't over power the story. They were fun to read about and I can't wait for the next book.

ARC received for review

Book two of the Lightning football players.

I don't remember much of Sage or Shawn from the first book. They were hot and heavy together plus throw in some emotional angst and issues from childhood, and it's a great romance. I sure hope Tanner gets the next book.

"Is it wrong that I want to lick him?

Hot & Heavy is a standalone, though each book focuses on a different player on the Lightning football team. The first book in the series, Down & Dirty features Hunter & Emerson which happen to be the best friends of Shawn & Sage which are the H/h in this story. So, you can expect to spend some time with some sexy players and some fun friends in every book. What's not to love about that?

One of the things that I love about this story is

Sage and Shawn meet across a crowded bar and when Sage doesn’t respond in the manner Shawn is accustomed to, he follows her to a dark hallway. After a hot and steamy session he’s once more struck dumb when she refuses to share numbers with him and then takes off like the bats of hell are after her.

Sage’s past left her needing to protect herself against any kind of instability and Shawn’s apparent need for an adrenaline rush is the type of thing she will not tolerate. But the chemistry between t

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Since I loved and devoured the first book, Down & Dirty, I just had to ask for Hot & Heavy once I saw it on NetGalley. In it, you will meet Sage and Shawn. Now of course I had my ups and downs with these characters, or even with what they were dealing with throughout the book, but in the end I fell in love with these two. Their chemistry was amazing and the smutty scenes that I got sort of rocked my world.

Pretty hot stuff!
An adrenaline junkie football player, Shawn, who’s been injured doing one of his crazy stunts and needs to get fit. And a beautiful yoga instructor, Sage, with instructions to help him. The trouble is they’ve met before.
Yep, the chemistry is off the charts as they attempt to attend to Shawn’s problem, which he has the tendency to aggravate.
Great fun.

I liked this one a lot - AMAZING chemistry between to the two MCs, and their instant attraction and consequential hook up is HOT. The ending felt a wee bit rushed, but other than that, a solid second book in the series.

4 stars.

I received a copy via Net Galley and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

After reading and loving the first book in Tracy Wolff's Lightning series called Down & Dirty, I just knew I had to get my greedy hands on Hot & Heavy. I mean if the titles in the series don't entice you the hottie football players certainly will. Tracy takes us back into this fictional world to heat us up once again to scorching levels with a couple that cannot keep their hands off of each other

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
Sage is at a bachelorette party and would rather be anywhere else until she sees the most beautiful man she has ever seen sitting at the bar. When they make eye contact, Sage thinks that she is out of his league and tries to stop looking in his direction. But it is hard to do. When he sends over a round of drinks for the group, Sage thinks that he is making fun of her and it really makes her sad and she

Another fantastic read in the Lightning series. Sage and Shawn. Night and day. Sage is running her mother's yoga studio while her mother is off yet again finding her bliss in India. After her childhood Sage settles for the sedate and predictable world of numbers. She's an accountant. She also keeps her mothers business going, that way everyone gets paid, bills sorted, taxes done. Shawn comes to her via a friend after he injures himself cliff diving in Mexico.

This book was a perfect “quickie” for a beach or vacation read. It moved along at a good pace, had interesting characters, and a plot that wasn’t overly complex. Each of the main characters, Sage and Shawn, carry around bags full of issues from their past. Sage's mother, s flighty and irresponsible yoga instructor, dragged her around all over the world and never allowed her to have a sense of security. Shawn blamed himself for the death of his mother and sister and compensated by engaging in adr ...more

Well this just gives me all the feels. After reading the first book, I was hoping to read Tanner’s story next. But I’m very happy that Sage’s story was first. This was so good!!!!

Sage is Emerson’s BFF. She runs her Mother’s yoga studio and is an accountant for a few other small companies as well. She’s lived her life by the books, so to speak. But one night while out with co-workers, she ditches the rules and allows herself one night of passion. One night, that apparently, turns out to be more

Although this is the second in a series, I hadn't read the first before reading this and I didn't feel as though I had missed out on anything too important. However, I am planning on going back and reading the first book when I get a chance.

Ah, Sage and Shawn. I don't know if I can think of a book that I've read recently where both main characters came into the relationship with so much baggage. While it's common for character's history/background to cause issues with their relationships in boo

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second in the series, and does include elements from the first book, but would be a strong standalone too.

Both Sage and Shawn have been deeply affected by their pasts, and the chemistry between them threatens all the coping mechanisms that they have developed over the years. Sage is thinking about taking a risk, Shawn may have found a solution to his need to take them. This opposing reaction in the face of l

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I enjoyed this book. One yoga teacher who knows nothing about sports hooks up a star football player and then leaves him without a backward glance.

Sage doesn't take chances. She doesn't hook up with random guys. And she most certainly doesn't get it on with random guys in the back of club. When she does all three in one night is it any wonder that she practically runs from the bar and back to her safe little world?

This is the second book in Wolff's Lightning series and can be read as a standalone. This story is all about Sage and Shawn. Shawn was my favorite of the two. He is a sexy dare devil adrenaline junkie. He is not a happy camper when his coach insists he takes yoga to help center him and calm him down. Yoga is definitely not his type of activity, but he has no choice. Sage is a yoga instructor who is high strong with insecurities a mile long. The two should have nothing in common and should not be ...more

This was a fantastic book. I thought Shawn and Sage worked so well together. Just what the other needed to give each balance. For Shawn being and NFL wide receiver wasn't enough he was also an adrenaline junkie. An addiction he fed with extreme sports. When an injury threatens to derail his career he finds himself at Sage's yoga studio door for help. Sage, after growing up with a loving but flighty mother, simply wants stability in her life. Running a yoga studio isn't her dream but it seems she ...more

I quite enjoyed this standalone read, Shawn and Sage are both likeable characters who are fighting off demons from their past while trying to live their day-to-day lives. Sage, after being dragged to a bar by friends, breaks her rule of only have 2 drinks and winds up having a quickie with Shawn outside the bathrooms at the bar. Knowing it can’t go anywhere, when Shawn asks for her number, Sage denies him and splits. Then when Shawn needs a yoga instructor to help with his football injury, his f ...more

You know when a book starts off with the two main characters getting their freak on in a bar outside the bathroom that the main focus is going to be sex. So I wasn’t surprised by the amount of sex in this book. What I was surprised was how involved I got with the characters. I was thinking that this book was going to be heavy on the sex and light on the plot. Instead, I got surprised. The plot was as good as the sex.

I loved Sage. She has to be one of my favorite fictional characters to date. She

When Sage Kaufmann attends a bachelorette party with a group of friends at a bar she never expects that it is going to lead to the hottest hook-up of her life... all she planned to do that night was have her two cocktails and then go home, but she wound up doing a whole lot more than that!! When her eyes connected with a tall, gorgeous man across the bar she was immediately drawn to him, but quickly decided he was to hot to take an interest in a girl like her... but she was so, so, wrong!

Hot & Heavy by Tracy Wolff, the second book in the Lightning series, is definitely a hot read! This book was very enjoyable, it was entertaining and fast pace. Sage and Shawn will draw you in from page one, Wolff did an excellent job giving us two very compatible characters.

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her ...more
