4 Happily Hot and Bothered Stars
* * * * Spoiler Free
Woweee, Wow! I have been reading Elle Kennedy for quite some time. She had many books through Entangled Publishing with the Brazen Imprint which promises its readers to be smokin' hot, have lots of connections and some serious heart between all of the players.

Well, this collection of three novellas has that same feel of the other books I had read and you will be enjoying all of the sexy times presented.

There is much to choose from...

Hot set of SEAL novellas

Three quick and steamy novellas about some SEALS and the women they want badly. There is a threesome in the first story that is pretty hot. All in all a good read if you’re looking for quick and steamy.

Quick Review: The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I want more Garrett and Shelby! I wish the novella had a couple more chapters. It was SOOOOOOOO hot and it was sweet too! I garantee it's a good story! #WinkWink

Talk about three quick steamy sizzling novellas rolled into one that will definitely leave you hot and bothered.

Three hot as sin seals. Three quick but erotically pleasing romances that will bring your arousal up to an all time high.

Elle Kennedy brings the heat and you will find yourself thinking you might have too many clothes on. I mean hot dayummm.

Book 1 had me seriously coming undone. Book 2 had me falling for a determined seal who was ready to for a relationship. Book 3 was a best friend

3 stars, overall

This was a freebie on Amazon consisting of the first 3 novellas in a series that comprises 10 books overall, I believe. These books are basically erotic fluff with no plot or character development and I'm not saying that as a complaint. Sometimes some fluff is all I need.

Heat of the Moment - 3 stars
Friends-to-lovers novella with two people crushing on each other but both thinking the other isn't interested. I LOVE THIS SETUP. Also there is a hot threesome with a friend. Definitel

Hot and Bothered is a trio of novellas that are hot, dirty and pack a bit of an emotional punch. I enjoyed them all and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of books in the series.

What the hell........



I've LITERALLY just finished reading the first Elle Kennedys Off Campus book, thought it was brilliant and basically everything this book wasn't. How can an author go from "are you literally reading my mind" to this

Holy Smokes!!! You want a quick, hot, sensual, steamy, stories!! This is the book for you! Hot and Bothered by Elle Kennedy is no joke . In this book you get books one through three --short stories of the men of the Out of Uniform series. Remind you that these stories have been previously released as single books and are now put together in one book, with no story changes just minor editing changes.

Besides all the "hot and bothered" ness you also get three lives of the navy seals at their best,

As anticipated, these novellas are comprised mostly of smut with some pepperings of plot and character/relationship conflict. I think my favorite was the last one featuring Will and Mackenzie because 1) I’m a perpetual sucker for best-friends-to-lovers. 2) The psychic element was unexpected.

This was a lovely and light, enjoyably predictable read, which I both needed and wanted after finishing the heavily languaged epic, Les Miserables. If you’re looking for something simmery, sexy, and straight

Wowwwww. Talk about full on Alfa's...These men don't joke around, as they are navy seals, not even when it comes down to their women! This one book is actually three stories of three different character, their lives as navy seals and the women that change everything.

Heat Of The Moment 5 stars

Oh boy... this novella was pretty hot!! The heat wave going on in this story had Shelby wanting to do things she’s never done before!!! Garrett was all for helping her live out her fantasy. But for him it was only going to a one time shot with that fantasy! Because he wanted Shelby all to himself! I loved Carson! He knew how to work up Garrett when it came to Shelby!
This was a good start! I can’t wait to read the other two novella’s!!

Hot and Bothered by Elle Kennedy contains the first three stories in her fantastic Out Of Uniform Series.
Heat of the Moment; Heat of Passion and Heat of the Storm are novellas and very easily to read and love. I was hooked from the start and read them in one sitting.

Heat of the Moment is Garrett and Shelbys story. The book was originally published as part of a anthology, is now a bit edituied and got a brand new gorgeous cover.
Shelby Harper has a major crush on John Garrett, the hot Navy SEAL. B

I was super excited when Elle announced she was relaunching this series! It's been out of print for sometime and I loved how she updated them to fit with modern times.

This book has three stories and I really enjoyed them all. I must say Heat of the Moment
was quite a surprise, because it packed a little more than I was expecting, but in a bad way! You'll have to read it to find out what I'm talking about. I enjoyed seeing Shelby and Garrett finally deal with their respective unrequited feelings

What's not to like about three sex-filled romances of Navy seals who have decided they are ready to settle down? Now all they need to do is convince the ladies in their life that they are serious!

Each story is steamy -- there is no skimping on the sex in these novella's which is what I'd expect with three virile, attractive Navy seals with lots of experience! While there's plenty of action to satisfy, I really liked the premise of each story.

In Heat of the Moment, Garrett wants to ask Shelby on

Three Hot Stories. Individual review for each

Heat of the Moment

No cliffhanger
Standalone novella
Told from both POVs
No major editing issues

Short sweet and very hot. I wish I could have a bit more of John and Shelby. While their story was short it was jam packed with a quick backstory that made you love them both and a twist you didn’t see coming. All taking place in about 50 pages. The only thing I hated was that I would have loved a full length novel about these two.

Great start to this book thou

I can't believe I really enjoyed reading this. My thoughts for this book will be quick and simple because my thoughts are pretty straight forward for each story.

Heat of the Moment followed Garret & Shelby and it was really steamy, unrealistic at some points, but overall a pretty cute adult romance story.

Heat of Passion follows Carson & Holly and it was funny, unrealistic at some points, but the were the more relatable couple out of the book.

Finally, Heat of the Storm follows Will &

Heat of the Moment (Book 1): 4 stars.

I really liked this one. The threesome scene for me felt like it honestly didn't need to be there but it was still hot. Garrett is wonderful, I loved him.

Heat of Passion (Book 2): 3 stars.

Liked this one less than the first. My main issue for me was Holly's family, on the one hand (view spoiler)

3.7

Here are a couple of realizations I’ve had since I started reading “Hot and Bothered” In the middle of Biology class:

Listen, Elle Kennedy is one of my favorite New Adult authors and her books are the only ones within that genre that I’m proudly to display on my shelves. I’ve never enjoyed a new adult that much until her sophomore series “Off Campus” came into my life. I read erotic stuff pretty often on my phone usually, but I dare say that... Elle has been definitely holding back on us? In s

Three short stories of player SEAL's and how they ended up falling in love. 3.5 stars.

Heat of the Moment:
Garrett and Shelby spent a year wanting each other and not being able to get the message across. Then they did with a little help from Carson. Short steamy tale with multiple sexy moments. If MFM or even MF offends you, pass on this one.

Heat of Passion
Holly is too busy to have a relationship, carrying the weight of the world in her shoulders. Carson wants more than casual. With a little advic
