Book 2 of Arkadia Fast Review This book reminded me a lot of Fast and the Furious but with a few slight twists. The only thing I didn’t like was I wanted to know more about the horrific accident that Hadley was in including why she’s unable to have children. Why didn’t Aiden or anyContinue reading “Book Review: Hot Lap by Leslie Scott”

I didn’t realize that there are two other books that follow the character in the book. Only one scene did I feel like there might be more to this book or other books that will help me understand these characters better. I will be getting the two books before this: Let’s Get Textual and I Wanna Text You Up.
Monty Andrews left her sheltered life with her parents and younger brother after being cheated on by her fiance. That is when she realized that she lives for other people and says “yes” to everything. All of this conformity has come at a cost–a loss of her identity. Monty moves in with her twin sister. She decides that her “yes life” is over. She’s going to take more chances, do more things. That’s how she ended up at a bar with her sister, Denny. Oh, and making out in said bar with a gorgeous tatted up stud in the women’s restroom. Both things she would have NEVER done before. Oh, how his hands, and mouth feels on her skin. The knock on the door brings her to her senses–literally.
Campbell is a former teen heartthrob and rock star. Now, he’s a single father who moonlights with a small band and teaches private music lessons.
One night at The Grouchy Owl, he spots a brilliant, gorgeous woman that he just can’t resist. So, he doesn’t. It turns into a one night stand that Campbell never wants to end. He would love nothing more than to explore an actual relationship with Mackenzie. Too bad his next music lesson is her son! Oops 😦
I cried, laughed, was angered, and disgusted–disgusted by the actions of the characters. Ok, two characters in particular. I do think that I would have had a better understanding of the characters had I read the previous four books–which are now in my Amazon list.
Some of the content was a bit difficult to read–the details from Clara’s abusive marriage and the things her husband did to her. But these horrific events shaped Clara into the strong and independent woman that she is. I did have to walk away from the book a few times when some of those scenes were particularly graphic or when children are involved. It was gratifying to see how much Clara changed and became a stronger woman. In the end, she stood up for herself and the children. Something that not every abuse victim is able to do.
Clara is a woman trapped. For years she was trapped in an abusive marriage to Colin with her two little boys. She did everything to protect her angelic boys from their father. She made sure that she took all of Colin’s anger. Finally, she was able to leave and live into a battered women’s shelter. The shelter saved her life. Saved her boys.
