REVIEW: HOT MESS BY LYNN RAYE HARRIS

English professor Dr. Georgeanne Hayes has a problem. Her star pupil, an Army sergeant who works in a Top Secret government program, is missing—and someone tried to push her in front of a train last night.

Sam “Knight Rider” McKnight is used to looking out for Georgie. When they were kids, she was just his best friend’s baby sister. But Georgie’s not a baby anymore and Sam is getting some very male—and very dirty—thoughts about the girl he knows he can never have.

When someone threatens Georgie’s life again, Sam will do anything necessary to keep her safe. Even if it means spending the next few days locked up in a remote house on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with her.

Sam might be used to denying himself what he wants, but he’s about to find out that being cooped up with Georgie will push him to the limit. And maybe beyond.

Our Review 

This is a steamy little novella in the Hostile Operations Team series. As noted in the synopsis, Georgie and Sam have known each other for basically their entire lives and when they were old enough for romance to happen...it didn't. Happenstance throws them back together and gives them a chance to explore a possible second chance at something happening between them. Of course because it's been over a decade since the first attempt, things have happened to make this a much more challenging task. Sam is reticent to get involved because he doesn't think he's good enough and he feels like his BFF (and Georgie's brother) would freak out. He is also concerned about how Georgie would take his extended absences for his job. Georgie is less hesitant...but does have a few concerns about all of this as well.

The tale as old as time...the best friend's brother wouldn't like the romance thing....

That is killer! And it made our hero and heroine's journey a bit of a challenge, though...Georgie is a badass independent woman. For some reason, I enjoy these types of stories very much, and if you add in the fact that Sam is a man in uniform...we could read about him and his sexy ways all day long. I like the Hostile Operations Team or better known as HOT (because, damn they are hot) and was very excited to rejoin the team to see what they get up to. Georgie has gotten herself in quite the predicament y'all! 

Being thrown together in a tense situation...emotions running high...these two take an opportunity and decisions have to be made. Cute, steamy novella in the collection. Indeed! Another lovely book in our collection!
