I just started my dream job. Too bad it comes with movie mogul Jake Dalton who’s equal parts sexy and arrogant ass. He’s also a man who comes with a thousand warning signs. Good thing I have zero interest in complicating my life.
But while stuck on set in one of the most exotic places in the world, the desert heat isn’t the only thing making me sweat. The more time we spend together, the harder it is to deny the chemistry sizzling between us.
When we finally give in…the sex is off the charts. But Jake has too many secrets, and combined with my past, trust is impossible. This craziness is temporary, right?
This was such an amazing journey, an emotional roller coaster and a crazy amount of heat (from the desert and not only, if you get my point). I loved this book to the moon and back. I read it in two days, simply because at some point I needed sleep.
With this being said, let me introduce you to our main characters: Jake and Charlie. She is just starting her career. With no idea what she wants to do with her future, she submits a CV as an assistant for one of the most important actors in Hollywood. Suffice to say that said actor is hot as sin, but when you bring his brother (the movie producer and mega boss of Global Studios), only then you understand what hot really means. Charlie’s ambitious, with a desire to learn, no intention to be pushed around by an actor’s whims or the producer’s mood swings or swearing. Jake is hard on his team, a perfectionist and in no desire to settle down.
Their story is so complicated, with many things keeping them apart. But when the two personalities collide, a fire stars, so powerful and dangerous that melts their walls with each look, banter or kiss. The Charlie we meet in the beginning will not be the same after Jake and he will change as well. I loved this evolution so much and it goes so well with the story.
The book has 400 pages, according Goodreads. I did not feel the time pass by. I was so hooked and so invested in the story! I was afraid the plot would drag at some point, but it was not the case. On the negative side, I would have wanted to have more descriptions of the places. Morocco is an exotic place and with beautiful scenery. I would have wanted more of this explored (not too much more, just a bit more). Also, the way Charlie got the job is a bit too…coincidental. It did not feel believable.
All in all, I loved this book so so much! I wish I could award it 5 stars because with all the emotions that it made me feel, with all the good time I spent reading it, it fully deserves them. But I am compelled to remain with 4 stars, although it pains me to the heart! An amazing story, with so much passion and with characters that have baggage to carry around, until the fire manages to burn the past to ashes. Happy reading!
Cover Review: Nope, not the cover for my tastes. It has a dude with a great abdomen but little to remind about the story. He doesn’t remind me of a movie producer or … of the movie industry or that matter. The font used for “Hot Nights” may resemble to the way one would write an autograph but… neah.
Favorite Quote: (a Moroccan girl to Charlie, translating what her mother is saying): “She also say you have sad eyes. We have a saying in my village: past is a cage and life is a bird. She cannot escape it, no matter how hard she beats her wings against the bars. Only when she accepts the cage will she truly be free.”
About the Author
Catherine Wiltcher is a mum-of-two, former TV producer and self-confessed alpha addict. Her writing is best described as sinfully sexy, and her characters always fall hard and deep for one another.
She lives in a village near Bath in the UK with her husband and young daughters. If she were stranded on a desert island, she’d like a large pink gin to keep her company. Cillian Murphy wouldn’t be a bad shout either…
