Review & Giveaway: Bring on the Heat by Katie Rose

Bring On the Heat
The Boys of Summer # 1
By: Katie Rose
Releasing August 26th, 2014


In Katie Rose’s irresistible battle of wits, a case of mistaken identity lands a female fan in bed with a sexy superstar—and in major-league trouble.

House-sitting for a rich and famous friend has its perks, and Darcy Hamel isn’t shy about enjoying them. Especially when it means scoring a ticket to an exclusive fashion show hosted by the New Jersey Sonics. An avid baseball fan, Darcy has always dreamed of meeting the team—especially the starting pitcher whose body is as hot as his fastball. But there’s a catch. The gala is by invitation only. To get behind the velvet rope, mild-mannered Darcy will have to pose as party girl Lydia Logan.

Schmoozing is one of the downsides of fame, but Chase Westbrook knows how to liven up even the dullest event. And nothing spices a night up more than a beautiful socialite with a naughty reputation. What Chase doesn’t expect is a hint of sweetness beneath her sultry façade. Flirtation turns to seduction and leaves him aching for more. Chase just doesn’t know who the real Lydia is: the spoiled tease crying foul over some missing diamonds or the alluring woman making a play for his heart.

When I saw this cover I knew I had to read it. There is nothing better then a good sports romance in the summer. I will admit this is a new author so I didn't know what to expect from her. For the most part I enjoyed Bring on the Heat. It was enjoyable getting to know the characters and figuring out what they were about. I had a few issues with the story, most were easy to overlook, but one for me wasn't. That was when Chase found out about Darcy lying about who she was, (she was acting like she was her boss, Lydia). I don't mind the lie part, what part I didn't care for was when Chase ended it with her  and thought about starting it up with the real Lydia. Gross. If you take that part of the story out of it then it's pretty good. They do find their way back to each other in the end. The issues I had are mine, so please judge it for yourself. 


  1. I swear I am going crazy. I won't go into details until I talk to you in person. My copy was the uncorrected proof and everyone talks about Chase and Lydia one way, but mine was another. I reread the last chapters 3 or 4 times!
