Molly Somerville loves her career as the creator of the Daphne the Bunny children's book series, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. She has a reputation for trouble that started even before she gave away her fifteen-million-dollar inheritance. Then there's her long-term crush on the quarterback for the Chicago Stars football team her sister owns—that awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can't even remember Molly's name!
One night Kevin barges into Molly's not-quite-perfect life and turns it upside down. Unfortunately, the Ferrari-driving riving, poodle-hating jock isn't as shallow as she wishes he were, and she soon finds herself at a place called Wind Lake. Surrounded by paintbox cottages, including a charming old bed-and-breakfast, Molly and Kevin battle their attraction and each other as they face one of life's most important lessons. Sometimes love hurts, sometimes it makes you mad as hell, and sometimes—if you're lucky—it can heal in a most unexpected way.
This Heat of Mine begins when Molly, a children's author, and sister to owner of the Chicago Stars goes on a mini vacation. She just never expected to run into the one player she's had a crush on forever, Kevin. Kevin's there to get his head back on straight. He keeps getting into trouble with his coach, and things just aren't going the way they should be. But after a night Molly and Kevin both regret, each of them must learn to live with the fall out.
This book was okay. It wasn't as good as some of the other books I've read by this author, but I still enjoyed the plot line. The first part of the book was interesting, then frustrating. i really hated some of the things that happened, and I was annoyed with it for a while. But towards the end I really starting liking the characters a whole lot, and got excited about how it was going to end. It did end with a really nice HEA, and we got to see two romances come to play in this story!
So, over all I liked the plot. But I had a hard time liking the characters till the end.
