SUNNY:ARC BOOK REVIEW "Two Times as Hot" by Cat Johnson


One Good Girl...
After her sister snags a hot Oklahoma cowboy, Emma Hart figures it’s her turn to saddle up. And with two country boys pursuing her at once, she’s in for a wild ride...

Two Sexy Guys...
Lieutenant Colonel Logan Hunt can’t deny the heat between him and Emma is fierce. But Logan isn’t looking for anything serious...just a chance to blow off some steam. So why is he crazy jealous when he sees pro bull rider Jace Mills trying to charm Emma into bed?

Winner Takes All...
Logan knows he and Emma could have something special—and not just because she’s smokin’ hot. Now he has to find a way to prove that even a no-strings-attached guy like him can stick around for the long haul…
This is a good old fashioned love story.  I liked Emma in the first book as the fully supportive sister and I like Logan for being a faithful friend.  So it is right and just that these two find each other in the sequel to One Night with a Cowboy.  Unlike the first book, being in the military plays less of a role in the story.  In fact, much of the story takes place far away from the college and base.  Surprisingly, Logan's rank and role plays little role in the story.  

For me, this is more of a story about falling in love through the everyday interactions.  It is the little things that they do for each other that makes the relationship grow.  Not to worry, there is plenty of steam in this story to enhance this narrative.  

My biggest critique is the title and the blurb.  Yes, the title is eye-catching, but this book is less frivolous than the title may lead you to believe. It simply does not do the book justice.  And the blurb mentions "And with two country boys pursuing her at once, she’s in for a wild ride...", that is such a minor part of the story and does not accurately reflect the depth of this story.  Such as shame.

I enjoyed the read and would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a good love story between mature adults.   

Thank you to the author, publisher and Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
