Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .
Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?
Getting Hot with the Scot was such a charming love story. I love that it had as much to do with friendship as it did with the unfolding love story between Logan and Cassie.
Logan comes off as an arrogant (albeit, charming) jerk in the beginning when he first meets Cassie. I sort of wish this would have deterred Cassie's attraction to him a little longer (because that's my trope, y'all), but their attraction was written well and I could see why she wouldn't want to wait.
I thought it was interesting that the author decided to take the idea of this romance a bit further than I believe other authors would have taken it. **spoiler** This romance turns from a vacation fling romance to a serious, commitment-heavy, and emotional story. This is by far - not bad at all. The author does it very well - I was just surprised to find so much emotion in a story that started as a summer vacation fling.
Cassie's friends are hilarious and sweet, and I love how Bonnie was her ultimate wing-woman. They also set up Bonnie's story (the upcoming book) very well and I cannot wait to review it! (yes, I already read it haha)
