Slow Heat is the latest sexy book by Jill Shalvis. From the back cover.~
After a woman claims she’s pregnant with Wade O’Riley’s love child, Major League Baseball’s most celebrated catcher and ladies’ man is slapped on the wrist by management and ordered to improve his image. His enforcer is the team’s publicist, the tough and sexy Samantha McNead.
When Wade needs a date for a celebrity wedding, Sam steps up to the plate as his “girlfriend”. But given her secret crush on him and that one awkward night a year ago in a stalled elevator with too much Scotch, the whole thing is an exercise in sexual tension.
Wade is thrilled when the pretense turns into an unexpected night of hot passion. But the next day Sam is back to her cool self. As a catcher, Wade’s used to giving the signals, not struggling to read them. Now, to win the love of his “pretend” girlfriend, he needs a home run-even if it involves stealing a few bases…
Slow Heat is another fun, hot and sexy book by Jill Shalvis. We first are introduced to Wade and Sam in Double Play. I loved Wade from the beginning and was so glad we got his story with Slow Heat. Wade and Sam have to pretend to be dating to help turn around his public image. The only problem with the plan is both are still attracted to one another after their secret tryst in the elevator a year ago, not that either is willing to admit it when the plan is hatched. The fact that both are having trouble keeping their hands to themselves just makes this story funnier and sexier.
I loved Slow Heat! Wade and Sam were so wonderful together and I really liked watching them fall for one another. Jill Shalvis gives the reader another sexy winner with Slow Heat and I can't wait for her next book to be released.
