Hello again! Today I have another book review (I promise I'll get to my Cornwall updates soon)! This times book is another pick from Neverland Blog Tour's, here is my review of Hot Shade by Tamara Lush...

In the tropical Florida heat, a man with deadly secrets falls for a lovely, inquisitive reporter...

After Luca Rossi lost everything to the Italian mafia, he used all his skills to write a stunning expose, and managed to put a key don on trial for his life. But now Luca must hide out on the Florida coast until justice is served in Italy. All is well, until he meets a lovely young American reporter who won’t stop asking questions about who he is. Soon he’s fighting the urge to hush her with a kiss ... and much, much more.

Skylar Shaw took a job with a small Florida paper determined to make her mark on the journalistic world. She may spend her days writing up alligator scares and human interest stories, but when she meets a handsome mystery man on the beach, she’s not afraid to dig into his past, and the danger stalking him from across the seas. There’s just one problem ... will her efforts help Luca, or bring danger straight to him?

Luca knows all too well the journalistic drive to keep digging. Can he trust his lovely Skylar to keep his secrets, or must he push her away to save both their lives?

When on the run from the mafia and hiding out in his Uncles Florida holiday home, Luca is hoping not to get into any more trouble. Then after a plane crashes and he is deemed a 'good Samaritan', the attention this brings from a journalist named Skylar starts throwing him off and worries him about how safe it is to continue speaking to her, let alone a relationship.

If I'm honest, this isn't the usual sort of book I would tend to go for. It was quite romantic and about the angle of a relationship being formed. However, what did pull me into this book and made me enjoy it was the mystery aspect to everything going on. The mistrust between Skylar and Luca because they had both had experiences that caused them to be more questionable of a relationship.

Within the book itself though, it was this character development and growing relationship between them that definitely gave the book some intrigue. This development didn't just sit with the two main characters (Skylar and Luca) either it carried through onto supporting ones too which I found made the book a lot more of an enjoyable read.

Overall I enjoyed the book and although at times it seemed rushed each avenue and point given throughout the story was developed enough to understand what was going on. I'd recommend this book to someone who is wanting a sizzling hot read for the Summer or just fancies a unique take on the standard boy meets girl story.
