I mean, thanks for the chuckle. And the cringe-fest.
Credit where credit is due, this tried. It tried really *really* hard.

The Hotter They Come is full of drama, angst, mystery, suspense and an intense love story. Torn between her job and the man she loves Piper must decide what to do. Jack fell hard for Piper and is caught up in her beauty. Can their relationship survive. Great writing, believable well developed characters and a beautiful romance make this a must read.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Roxanne D. Howard; she has done a great job at writing a good book. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

This was a great read although it was very quick. Read it all in one sitting. The sex scenes were hot and I really liked the characters. I can’t wait to read more on Jake and Piper. Ends in a cliffhanger so there’s more to it.

This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the Publisher and NetGalley. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

Piper was sent undercover to do an exposé on Jack and his company, but once she realized things were not as they seemed, all bets were off. They had one day together before things fell apart. This book was the first of a trilogy for these two featuring the beginning of a romance on the high seas. It was steamy, but also set the stage for Jack and Piper's adventures to come.

This was a quick read. It jumps right into the story but I still liked it. I could picture Captain Jack in my head and wow he was hot. Both characters were strong and sincere. I liked the story. I definitely need to read the next book asap. It does end in a cliffhanger though.

Piper is a undercover reporter who was sent to investigate Jack’s whale watching business by a rival. They have developed feelings for each other, but things become complicated when she must choose between her and assignment and him and how will he feel when the truth is revealed?

Heat, suspense and twists will keep you entertained until the last page. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Here’s the thing, I loved how this story started – masquerade ball? I’m in. But their one night stand was honestly cringe worthy. It all happened too fast (before the sex I mean), it lacked details and suddenly they started having sex. Like I need to feel the chemistry first, you know? Reading the sex part made me cringe and I just didn’t feel connected to the characters at that point.

I know I’m repeating myself from book to book but this one was short also. Too short. In fact, when I requested

Jack is the captain of a whale watching business his business is in high demand and causes jealousy and others Piper is reporter for a TV show ugh hate TV shows based on catching people doing the wrong thing.
The problem is Piper and Jack have met before they had a great time together but now the problem is Piper is investigating him based on lies that were told to her for her TV show trying to catch. Doing wrong falling for him was not in the cards but it happened anyway now Piper has a dilemma

This was a quick, sexy read with plenty of hot sex. Jake and Piper have incredible sexual chemistry that takes off the day they meet at a mascarade ball. She's a undercover report who falls for Captain Jack. While it was a decent novella it does end with a cliffhanger which is a bummer.

Thank you Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
