Hot Under Pressure - Kathleen O'Rilley


Boutique owner Ashley Larsen hates flying. Especially when there's a sugar-fueled little hellion on board. But then David McLean (sexy!) sits next to her, and suddenly Ashley finds herself hoping the delay will last forever—and that David won't notice her comfy pink bunny slippers (sadly, the opposite of sexy).

David does notice Ashley, and when the flight is delayed overnight, they can't get to the airport hotel fast enough. Off with the slippers and in with the zing! Fortunately, America is filled with cities—L.A., New York, Miami—and nothing says "smoking-hot passion" like an intercontinental affair!

Alrighty...IM BACK!!! *said in really creepy voice! lol Ive been sick/hurt this week! lol But Im back now and YOWZA this was the perfect book to start off with!

This happens to be my first Harlequin!!! Yay me! I have to admit that I once thought that these books were hokey and for old chicks...I know I know but I was TOTALLY proven wrong! lol

We meet Ashley...she is divorced and owns a few new chichi boutiques! =)

This was the perfect book to pop my Harlequin cherry! ;) Ashley HATES...absolutely HATES flying but when David sits next to her on one of her many business trips all things start to head for the Mile High Club.

David is a (I forget what you call it) but a numbers guy in business's! lol He tells them all what they should do to get ahead in their company etc. David is also divorced (and let me tell you his story is a B-U-R-N) and has no plans for a love affair but when he sits near this bombshell Ashley he cant help but think of getting her near a bed!

Oh darn...looks like the plane wont get to take off after all. So what better to do then to shack up for a one nighter with a hot bod laying next to you! ;) Ashley and David never knew what hit them after this long night of lovin' and obviously when things leave all was well but they couldn't help but think of each other and soon form a bond. Meeting state to state though soon took a toll of them and when push comes to shove can they handle a it something they even want?!?!? What happens when they leave the bedroom and real life calls?

I LOVED THIS STINKING BOOK! It had so many facets for being such a small gem. I loved that each character had their faults and issues yet by the end of the book all was well. The sex was HOT HOT HOT and and their dialogue was superb! I loved how the was quarky in ways like Ashley would hear her overbearing/extremely needy little sisters voice in her head! I looks at it as her internal demons! lol You'll understand as you read the book! Ashley and her family had ISSUES! As did David! David and his brother had a KING of issues! I don't want to give anything away but lets say that he too has to come past a lot of hurt within his family!

Overall I thought this book TOTALLY hit the spot in every way! Was it erotica? No...was it just about as hot...HECK YA and it still had heart! LOVED IT! =)

I give this book a total of...
