Roaring Hot is about Teo – a motorcycle racer who is a bit of a party boy and doesn’t show any signs of settling down. His grandmother says that she wants him to bring a girlfriend to her birthday party – so rather than find someone that might be suitable he and his pal Ronaldo create a fake reality TV show so that he can hire an actress to play his girlfriend.
Of course things get interesting when the two seem to be falling for each other for real – but Amy, the actress hired, doesn’t want to get attached and tries to convince herself that she only likes him because she is being paid to.
Of course, when Teo gets injured in a race and ends up in a coma she realizes that maybe she really does love him and doesn’t want to lose him so she does everything in her power to try and get him to wake up.
This book was a bit of a roller coaster ride with Amy and Teo because they were having trouble separating what was real and what was fake for the TV show. In the end, Amy truly seemed to care about Teo and his well being. I don’t want to say too much more because I don’t want to give too much away. Another great read from Rachelle Ayala.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
