Book Blurb: Dear Reader,

If you like hot men, hot action and hot attraction you're going to love this HOT new series! HOT STUFF introduces Cate Madigan, a Boston native from a large and crazy Irish family. Cate has far too much going on to get involved in extracurricular activities, like men and marriage. She spends all day in school, earning her teaching degree, and all night working as a bartender in Boston's South End. Ex-cop Kellen McBride has decided to make Cate's bar his nightly haunt. He likes Cate's sassy Irish spirit and wild red hair. He also has an ulterior motive for getting close to her. Cate has sworn off all things romantic, but when she comes home to a ransacked apartment, a roommate who has flown the coop, and a sleeping bullmastiff named Beast, Cate has no choice but to ask Kellen for help. Can Kate resist the charming Kellen McBride while keeping herself out of danger? Or will Kellen turn up the heat on Cate and everything in her life?

We know you'll have a blast with HOT STUFF!

Janet & Leanne

Review: Some books are meant to be read for the fun of reading. Hot Stuff by Janet Evanovich and Leanne Banks is one of those books. Janet is stepping away from Stephanie Plum on this one, but she's not stepping away from a fun mystery/suspense story that is full of humor and some zany characters. Zany? What is zany anyway? Zany is Patrick Pugg who is always saying stuff like "Pugg thinks....." Pugg doesn't use the word "I" until, Cate's neighbor Julie offers to rearrange certain parts of his anatomy!

Then there's Kellen...He's a hot ex-cop looking for some stolen property that Cate's roommate, Marty, an awesome drag queen, might know about. He's totally hot, but even though he is..Pugg's strangeness eclipses him, because he's too normal. I do love the girl's nickname for him, Mr. Yummy.

Oh and the best part? Beast, the bull mastiff puppy that Marty bought.

I love that Janet's books always feature an it a dog..or a hamster...Animals make funny books funnier.

This is a fluffy fun good time read.
