Blog Tour: A Little Too Hot by Lisa Desrochers (Review + Giveaway)
Today I am so excited to talk about A Little Too Hot, the newest release by Lisa Desrochers. This tour is brought to you by the fine folks at RockStar Book Tours.
I've reviewed Lisa's books before, but if you're new to the blog, or new to Lisa, here's what you need to know:
Lisa Desrochers is the USA Today bestselling author of A LITTLE TOO FAR , courtesy of HarperCollins, and companions, A LITTLE TOO MUCH (Nov 12, 2013), and A LITTLE TOO HOT (Jan 21, 2014). Also in stores is her YA PERSONAL DEMONS trilogy (Macmillan).
She lives in central California with her husband and two very busy daughters. There is never a time that she can be found without a book in her hand, and she adores stories that take her to new places, and then take her by surprise.

Before we get into the steamy details, here's an overview of A Little Too Hot:

Publication Date: Jan. 21, 2014

Source: Here's where things get interesting. I've reviewed a lot of books on this site but I've bought them all with my own money. However, the e-ARC of A Little Too Hot was received via Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. (Pretty freaking awesome of them to do it, and I thank them)
Page Count: 284 pages
Order Links: Amazon | B&N | iTunes | Google Play
The cover is simple and matches the cover art of the previous novels. And like I've mentioned in my reviews of the first two books here and here, I wasn't a huge fan of the cover art. But OMG, do I love the stories. A Little Too Hot was no exception. Here's the blurb (don't worry, this post is a spoiler free zone):
From USA Today bestselling author Lisa Desrochers, comes the third book in her sizzling New Adult series.
If you play with fire…
Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen’s club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny’s: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.
Harrison Yates is scorching hot, but he’s got a past that involves being left at the altar not too long ago. Sam is determined to make him forget about his ex, but when she makes her move, it flings her life into a spiral of chaos she never saw coming.
Because Harrison Yates isn’t who he seems to be. And his secret will probably get her killed.

Praise for A LITTLE TOO HOT
“Every page is deliciously breathtaking, wickedly sexy and sensational. A LITTLE TOO HOT is wonderfully unique and a LOT HOT! I am a HUGE Lisa Desrochers fan.”
— Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author of REAL, MINE, and REMY

But what did I think about the book?
My Rating: 5/5 screaming kitties - I flipping loved it!
I think it's official: I'm a Lisa Desrochers fan. It started with a crush after the first book in the series, A Little Too Far, and has blossomed into full on fan status. This book, A Little Too Hot, did not disappoint.
Sam was introduced as an ancillary character in A Little Too Far but you don't need to have read A Little Too Far to understand this story. Her story really starts here and is very exciting.
The characters are believable, which is always a big issue for me. Harrison and Sam are tough but vulnerable in ways we haven't seen in other characters in the series. I really like Sam. She's not a victim. She's tough and does what it takes to get by. I admire that quality in her.
About a quarter of the way into this book I was shocked by a major twist, like jaw-dropping shocked. So believe me when I say A Little Too Hot is a fun and wild ride.
I felt like this as the steamiest book out of the three. And that's saying something because the other books are Hot with a capital 'H'. But it wouldn't be a Lisa Desrochers romance if A Little Too Hot wasn't pushing a boundary or two.
All the twisty turns, surprising action, believably likeable characters, and steamy romance make A Little Too Hot my favorite book in the series. I loved it, and I think you will too.
