Heated - J. Kenner

Heated (Most Wanted, #2)

This book was actually a nice read! The characters were very mature and likeable. I cannot believe I didn’t read the first novel, but you don’t need to in this series. I truly loved how Sloane was all tough on the outside but when it came to her feelings, she proved to be a very passionate person who cares and loves those close to her. The book takes place in Chicago and Sloane is homicide detective from Indiana on medical leave for a gunshot wound received in the line of duty for a case she was working. She has about 10 days left on leave and promised her good friend Candy that she would look into their other friend Amy’s sudden disappearance. Her intel leads her to Club Destiny which is owned by Tyler, Evan, and Cole and there starts her mission. It was explosive when Sloane and Tyler meet for the first time and from that point on, we see the vulnerable Sloan who is fighting the pull to Tyler and we see the struggle she is experiencing because she is a cop and does not approve of everything Tyler, Evan, and Cole are into.   

OMG – Tyler, Tyler, Tyler!!!… What I can I say!! That man is smooth! Although in the beginning of the book his character seemed a little dark and brooding, I came to admire his character. Once Sloane got to really know him, she found that he is a very loyal individual and is selfless in his endeavors! Although Sloane did not agree with the strategies and method of business that Tyler, Evan, and Cole participated, she truly understood why they do business the way they do. He was truly caring and I came to like his character a lot during the book. Tyler is one of the best book boyfriends that I have come across in a long while. Although his past is a little screwed up, it’s not to the point where there are psychological issues or demons that need to be dealt with and I am happy that this was not a factor in Tyler’s character.
J. Kenner has a way of putting words together that make it seem as if you are in the book experiencing what the characters are going through and I really admire her for this! This book was a great read, had mature characters, real issues that are happening in today’s world, didn’t go overboard on the steamy scenes, and kept to the plot throughout the book.

4 out of 5 stars! I’m definitely going to get first book Wanted and definitely cannot wait until Cole’s book! ARC was received by NetGalley in exchange for review.
