I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

We’ve come across many other paranormal romance writers who venture into the contemporary romance genre. Some have been successful in their crossover, while some others have not. Gena Showalter’s The Orginial Heartbreakers series is a good series for a paranormal romance writer. I mean, considering that most of her previous books were all dark and full of supernatural beings, this contemporary romance has been all realistic.

The Hotter You Burn is the second full length installment in the series. It has the all-time favorite billionaire playboy as a hero coupled with a down-in-luck but kind heroine. That forumla works all the time, and this book was no exception. While it is already a second book, it can still be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the previous book and the prequel novella myself, but I still enjoyed this book.

With what I read and with how much I enjoyed the Hotter You Burn, I think I’m going to have to backread the previous stories. I did see there were some not-so-flattering reviews about the other books. However, I’m sure I’m still brave enough to tread through and read them. Having said all that, it’s good to see that Ms. Showalter can still entertain her readers even when she’s on a different genre.
