Hot As Hale by Marie James Review Tour

Title: Hot As Hale 
Series: Hale Series #3
Author: Marie James
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2015

Innocent Joselyne Bennett loves her quiet life. As an elementary teacher her days include teaching kids then going home to research fun science projects to add to her lesson plan. Her only excitement is living vicariously through her sister Lorali and friend Alexa Warner. 

Incredibly gorgeous police detective Kaleb Perez was going through the motions of life. His position on the force as a narcotics detective forced him to cross paths with Josie after a shooting involving her friend. 

On more than one occasion Kaleb discretely tried to catch Josie’s eye. On every occasion he was ignored but when her hand is forced after a break-in at her apartment Josie and Kaleb are on a collision course with each other. Formerly timid Josie is coaxed out of her shell by the sexy-as-sin Kaleb who nurtures her inner sex-kitten in the most seductive ways, and replaces her inexperience with passionate need. 

The small group has overcome so much in such a short period of time and just when they think they can settle back into their lives they are forced back into the unknown. Can Kaleb protect Josie from further tragedy? Can she let him go once the threat of danger is gone?

This is a standalone erotic contemporary novel. The next book in the Hale Series: To Hale and Back is the conclusion of the series and in the point of view of all six characters.

Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.



To Serve and Protect....

Kaleb or rather I say Detective Perez was on a mission. That mission was to get a date with Josie because the handing over a business card was just not working. What he didn’t plan on was having to protect her from misguided threats of a situation she had nothing to do with. Gutted from not being able to keep his word he call on family to help in the search, what he wasn't counting on was finding love. Josie was his soulmate in and out of the bedroom. They couldn't keep their hands off each other. She was his butterfly. They were the modern day version of her parents, cop and school teacher.

I enjoyed this story and was wondering how and when Josie and Kaleb were going to take that next step. There are only so many was to flirt and give subtle hints. I think what intrigued me the most was even in their relationship what they really wanted and desired was still passed off as hints until it was damn near to late.

I've always wanted to write novels and just recently had the gumption to sit down and start one. My passions include reading everything under the sun and sewing. I even listen to audio books while sewing. Coming to Hale is my debut novel and book 1 in the 4 book Hale Series. I have several other story lines worked out for other books once this series is complete. Reading and writing is my happy place. Hope you enjoy my debut novel.
