Review : Too Hot to Handle (The Boys of Summer #2) by Katie Rose

Katie Rose’s Boys of Summer series returns for a delicious double-header—with the story of total opposites who are drawn to each other like moths to a flame.
Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.
Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.


My review :


Too hot to handle is a story about a hot, prodigious baseball player, Jake and Nikki, the new PR hired to clean, restoring the image of this bad boys team.

Imagine being surrounded by all these guys, used to move about as they pleased, had to take orders from her? Get ready to go to the camp! Like a bunch of spoiled children, they made her life like hell. Always getting into Nikki’s way to help them. She tried to do her best to keep them in shape, making them more respectable. It will be a long road trust me!

But Jake saw the fire under Nikki’s coldness, badass attitude. They both felt the chemistry even Nikki tried to stay away as far as she could from Jake the hotness, player, no strings attached guy.
Behind all his attitude, we can see the sweet side of him and not only the good-looking looks! He actually cares for his family, friends, people who are important, matters to him.
Like all his teammates, Jake is little stubborn and when he wants something, he goes for it. This time his undeniable attraction to her is so strong that he can’t help to chase in every way.
Nikki disregard is a shield, protection from being involved with someone. Jake does the same by his carefreeness’ attitude. She didn’t want to be hurt again.
Like the tittle of the book and the cover implied, this man is totally hot, delightfully sexy and sensitive! The sexual tension, attraction was totally in the air! They both ignited sparkles!! Wow! The chemistry is here and you can’t denied it!

This read was very fluid, easy, funny, sexy and efficient. It goes straight to the point! I love romance with sexy, hot, handsome athletes and woman who could stand against them, strong and independent! Learning about the inside of the baseball league was interesting and i was pleased to read about that. I give this book 3.5 « sweet Jake stars » because i’d loved to have Nikki and Jake’s past, characters more developed!
