*Book Review & Giveaway* Roaring Hot by Rachelle Ayala


Motorcycle racer Teo Alexiou is challenged by his grandmother to come to her birthday party with a real girlfriend. He has plenty of party girls, and he fears getting roped into marriage so he hires an actress to play the part.

The last thing Amy Suzuki wants is to be a kept woman, but her student loans are piling up and acting gigs are nonexistent. She agrees to Teo’s proposal for one summer, limited to public displays of affection.

When Teo and Amy find themselves caught in love’s grip, their new desires war with their fears. Teo wants to renegotiate, but Amy insists she’s only with him because she is paid. She would never lose her heart to a man who uses money to buy affection.

Their game playing explodes when Teo is injured on the track. Teo needs Amy, but how can she be sure of her true feelings when she’s an actress who can portray any emotion on command? Was her role in the reality show skillful acting or true love?

When I started this book I was in the midst of a crazy, stressful and exhausting time at work. I really didn't see how I would have time to read this. The next thing I knew I was reading the last page! This book was just what I needed to keep myself sane and slip out of my own mentally draining days!
The tension and chemistry between Teo and Amy is beyond hot. They try to fight the relationship (which makes for a fantastic story) but in the end.....well.....I'll let you find out how that all plays out. From beginning to end this story kept me surprised. When I first started reading it I didn't think it would be such an introspective tale. I loved watching the relationship grow....even though Amy "didn't love" Teo.
It's a new year, make one of your goals to read more. Put this book on the short list of must read books and get started!

"Love love love love Teo!!! The chemistry between Amy and Teo was off the charts! Although I kinda dislike Amy at first she redeemed herself towards the end when she (spoiler deleted) that for me is one of the sweetest thing a girl can do for someone she says she doesn't care about. =) But Teo I LOVE HIM!!! Yeah he was a douche at times, but it goes with the territory being a billionaire's son, a hot racer but he treated Amy with respect so for me all is good. =) Highly recommended.”
