This is my first title by this author, and while this was a standalone, I did feel like maybe there was some information I didn't have, coming in to this in the 7th book in the series. There is a subplot that, while I was able to follow along, I don't think I was invested enough in the events to really understand the amount of time that was given to it.

The parts of this that focused on Ben and Julia were strong. I liked their relationship, the way

For me it was the first book in this series and the first book of this author in total, so two first times. This book can be read as a complete standalone, even though I will pick up the first books in this series, because this book was so much fun to read.
The Knight Family is a tight-knit group of brothers that went through thick and thin together already. The murder of their father, the disappearing act of their mother together with their sister

Can I give this more than 5 stars??? I have loved the Knight Brothers books/series since the very beginning. With Hot and Bothered, I can honestly say it gets better and better and better! There’s so much I want to say about specific things I enjoyed about this story however I do not want to deliver any spoilers. It is about Ben and Julie this time, but of course all the brothers stop by…and they, too, just keep getting more and more endearing.

Not only is the story of Ben and Julie wonderful and

In true Jennifer Bernard style Hot and Bothered from the Jupiter Point-Knight Brothers series is another great book that will keep those pages turning until you are done. This is Ben Knight and Julie's story. Definitely a five star book.

Ben Knight is an Air Force Reserve pilot--after serving 12 years active duty. Having come home to start up a flight company that mostly caters to Jupiter Point's honeymoon clientele, his main goal is to fly high and often. All that comes crashing down when a blast from the past returns. Why here and why now?

Julie fled Jupiter Point 12 years ago when her best friend called needing her help. She stayed away for fear of what she'd find when she came back. But NONE of that compares to what slams int

I am still seriously swooning over Ben Knight! Yes ladies another of the very sexy, charming and incredibly awesome Knight brothers, finally comes face to face with his fate or in Ben's case finally does again. We definitely see who got a big helping of sweetness, vulnerability and the ability to fly circles around the heart of the woman he wants.
I am such a sucker for a really good second chance love story, and this certainly is that!! I love how both Ben and Julie are totally unprepared for t

What do you do when your high school love comes back into town 11 years after she ran off & left you behind? According to Ben Knight, you act like it didn't bother you, ignore her, & avoid places you may run into her. The thing is, Ben can't pull it off. Everyone can tell it bothers him & that he is still extremely hurt by what he sees as her actions. Ben has gone on to have an excellent military career & now is co-owner of Knight & Day, a flying tour business. He just hadn't ...more

Ben Knight and Julie were high school sweethearts who KNEW they'd get married, have kids, and live happily ever after. Then life got in the way. Fast forward twelve years...

Ben, a former military pilot, and his brothers have opened Day and Knight Tours. They take tourists up in the skies for tours of Jupiter Point and surrounding areas. Ben loves his job, but feels as though something's missing in his life. Although he tries not to be, he's a little envious of his brothers and their significant

Again WOW!! I don’t know how she does it, but every book, including Hot and Bothered, Jennifer Bernard writes in her Jupiter Point series is better than the last. This is an amazing story about two people who get a second chance at the love they were denied as teens. Ben and Julie are perfect for each other, then and now. Neither could forget the other, their first love and nor could they find someone who could fill the hole left in their hearts. Julie gives all of herself to others, especially ...more

I've been waiting quite a while for Ben's story and, it was well worth the wait. Ben lost the love of his life when she disappeared 12 years ago, just before his father was murdered and, he found him. Because of this severely traumatic sequence of events and, the fact that his mother left and took his sister with her after his father's murder, Ben has lived his life with his heart walled off. He and his brothers have all managed to do well and, 2 of his 3 brothers have found happiness with the l ...more

Jupiter Point and the Knight Brothers...what a combination!
Ben knew what he wanted when he met Julia in High School. Everyone expected them to be together forever, until the night she left town without a word. Then his father was murdered and his life took a completely different track. He returned to Jupiter Point, started a business with his brother, and is happy...or is he? When Julie comes to town he realizes that he isn't over her. Julie isn't going to let the fact that she never heard from

I think I say this every time, and if I don’t I feel it, that each new book in the Jupiter Point series is my new favorite. Well, Hot and Bothered definitely takes the cake. This is absolutely my favorite of the series! This book has everything I look for in a second chance romance and then some.

I adore Ben, pretty sure he is my favorite Knight brother, hands down. Julie is amazing with Felix. Her love, devotion, and loyalty to him and Savannah shone brightly in everything she did. Felix was lik

There is something special about a high school sweetheart story; the shared history, surviving one of the worst times of your life together, finding a way to make it despite all that. Ben and Julie in Jennifer Bernard’s latest Hot and Bothered, are such a couple. A terrible misunderstanding pulled them apart, now that both are back in Jupiter Point they have the opportunity to straighten it out. While Ben and Julie are fun, Felix, Julie’s godson, steals the show. He adds another dimension to the

There needs to be more stars to give this book!!! Second chances at love, family drama, a little bit about the autism spectrum and getting closer to finding out who killed the Knight brothers father. This book has it all!!!
Ben and Julie met in high school and then one night Julie is gone. Fast forward 12 years and Julie is back in Jupiter Point. Will things be different this time around? Can they get past the way things ended all those years ago. Now add some family drama from the family Julie

Okay, I’m sure I’m in the minority here and that’s fine. But I feel like I missed a whole lot with this book. Yes, I know it’s several books into the series, but it’s supposed to be a standalone. I feel like I missed several things that should have happened in the previous books. It took me a while to get into the book, but it finally started picking up and I was getting into it more. Then out of nowhere, it just seemed to end. The whole murder/mystery thing is what killed it for me. I’

This series just keeps getting better and better. I love Ben and Julie. Heck I love Jupiter Point! Former teenage couple reunite 12 years later. It wasn't smooth sailing for them at the beginning (both believing the other was mad at them and hated them). As time goes on, we learn more about that time 12 years in the past and why things happened as they did. Some devious plans and some serious threats kept them apart. They reconnected and things are going good until some emotions get in the way o ...more

Another first for me, this was the first book I’ve read written by Jennifer Bernard. It was a nice read, and I know it can be as a stand-alone, but I felt like there were pieces missing. I don’t know why, I followed the subplot, but at times it felt a bit thrown in there.

The story is about Ben, his heartbreak actually because of his high school sweetheart Julie, which left him without any saying in the matter. After ten years, she come

I have read each and every one of the Jupiter Point books. Each one becomes my favorite at that moment, but I have to say I think "Hot and Bothered" will remain my favorite for a very long time! I loved the characters of Ben Knight and Julie deGaia. From their history to their future. This was one of the best second chance romance stories I have read. Jennifer is an expert at weaving in favorite characters from prior Jupiter Point books. And we get more of the story of what happened many years p ...more

Finally, we get to read Ben’s story! I have been looking forward to this one and it did not disappoint! Ben and Julie get their second chance and a happily ever after but first must deal with their past. Like all of Ms. Bernard’s books, it grabs the reader from the first page and is very hard to put down. Although I recommend reading the entire series, you can definitely read this as a stand-alone book. You won’t be disappointed!

I loved Ben and Jenny's story. You could feel their hurt and sadness, she left without a word and he stood her up. Jenny's back in Jupiter Point, no matter where she goes Ben is there. They need to talk, but will they be able to get past the heartbreak?

I highly recommend Jennifer Bernard's Jupiter Point series, you can read each as a stand alone but you'll want to read everything she writes.

I received an ARC from the author for a honest review.

Hot and Bothered is the seventh book in the Jupiter Point series. Ben and Julie we the real deal, and Ben knew that from day one. Until the day she left without a word. Then his life was turned upside down even more when his father was murdered. Now twelve years later, Julie returns and is willing to tell the Knight family things that may help solve questions of the past. But the danger is still real. Will Ben and Julie survive and reunite? I really enjoyed this story. I highly recommend it.

Ok, wow! This was a great book! These Knight brothers are wonderful! Fun, family (crazy and otherwise), mystery elements. Felix was a great kid and was good to visit with Sarah. Ben was seriously sweet (even Julie thought so). This rekindling romance was a wonderful addition to the Jupiter Point series. I cannot wait to find out how the mystery resolves!
