Review: Janet Evanovich & Leanne Banks – Hot stuff

Dit boek is nog niet vertaald naar het Nederlands, vandaar een Engelse beschrijving:
Cate Madigan isn’t asking for trouble. Her wacky Irish family is constantly playing matchmaker for her with men who leave much to be desired. All she wants is peace and quiet and a nice place to live while she saves her money from tending bar in a lively Boston pub. Okay, so what if her roommate is a cross-dressing lounge singer named Marty Longfellow? In exchange for cheap rent, all she has to do is take care of his plants and collect his mail when he’s out of town. And then… Marty disappears. At the same time, a Bullmastiff named Beast shows up with instructions from Marty to take care of him. Can Cate handle this 120-pound bundle of joy who wants to devour everything in sight?
Ex-cop Kellen McBride has decided to make Cate’s bar his nightly hang-out. But is he just there for the beer? Or does he have an ulterior motive for getting close to Cate. When Cate comes home to a ransacked apartment, she realizes Kellen knows more than he’s saying. Problem is, he’s turning up the heat in her life-in more ways than one. Soon Cate finds herself in deep trouble with mysterious stalkers, a lovesick would-be boyfriend named Patrick Pugg, two friends who are looking for love, and the very sexy, possibly dangerous Kellen McBride. The south side of Boston has never been wilder…

Mijn gedachten over het boek:
Boeken van deze schrijfster lezen gemakkelijk weg vind ik. Ook dit deel is zeer prettig om te lezen. Er zit een stukje spanning in, maar op een humorvolle manier waardoor je nooit weet welke kant het verhaal nu weer op zal gaan.
De wisselwerking en aantrekkingskracht tussen Cate en Kellen maken het boek alleen maar sterker.
Als ik het goed begrijp is dit het begin van een serie. Ik kijk al uit naar deel 2.

See above

My thoughts:
Books written by this author I think are easy reading material. This book is also very pleasant to read. There’s a bit of tension, but in a humorous way, so you never know which way the story will go from there.
The interaction and attraction between Cate and Kellen make the book even better.
If I understand correctly, this is the beginning of a series. I look forward to read part 2.
