Author: Karina Halle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 9, 2018
Delilah Gordon has a secret.
She’s been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old.
And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it’s better this way. She’d rather pretend that they’re just friends, even though her feelings for the moody, rugged mountain man are anything but tame.
Fox Nelson has a secret too. As a wildland firefighter or “hot shot,” Fox parachutes into danger every day he’s on the job, risking all to fight wildfires that threaten ranches, forests and thousands of lives. But while Fox’s job is only for the brave, inside he feels anything but. The more he grapples with his raging demons, the more he realizes Delilah is the only one who can put out the flames.
As the two friends grow closer – and more intimate – than ever before, the more complicated their relationship becomes.
And Delilah has one more secret to reveal.
A secret that will change both their lives… forever.
I absolutely love a friends to lovers story! Hot Shot was an intense slow burn romance- The storyline was written so well…
It took me a while to fall for Fox, he was a difficult character to understand. Del on the other hand, I loved her! I felt her pain and her disappointment.
No one said a friends to lovers story was going to be an easy one but damn! There were times when I was reading this book where I felt like it was a train wreck that was bound to happen! And times where I went “Poor Poor Del! My God!”
The frustration level in this book is high!High people! not only because it’s angst, heartbreak galore but also because FOX NELSON is a stupid man! MEN!!! ugh!
Thank you baby Jesus! Who finally decided to intervene and add some common sense into this man! hahaha! I think once that happened, I actually really liked him. Hahaha!
A special shout out to Delilah Gordan for being the baddest hardcover girl ever! For being strong even when the “punches” came rolling one after the other! (FYI, I’d go all “You Go girl! *fingers snap*” BUT I don’t think I’m cool enough to pull that off. HAHAHAHA!!!)
