Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O'Reilly (2009)

CATEGORY: Harlequin Blaze
SETTING: Contemporary US
SERIES: Book One in the Where You Least Expect It series
HEROINE: 32 year old divorced boutiques owner

Boutique owner Ashley Taylor hates flying. Especially when there's a sugar-fueled little hellion on board. But then David McLean (sexy!) sits next to her, and suddenly Ashley finds herself hoping the delay will last forever - and that David won't notice her comfy pink bunny slippers (sadly, the opposite of sexy).

David does notice Ashley, and when the flight is delayed overnight, they can't get to the airport hotel fast enough. Off with the slippers and in with the zing! Fortunately, America is filled with cities - L.A., New York, Miami - and nothing says "smoking-hot passion" like an intercontinental affair!

Dear Author reviews Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O'Reilly

The dialogue between Ashley and David sparkles at times while at others it’s quiet and serious as they discuss their feelings and the issues still keeping them apart. You didn’t go easy on the issues either. David with his broken family relationship caused when he caught his brother and now ex-wife in bed only to have those two marry after the divorce came through. And Ashley who acts almost as a mother to her 30 year old, champion guilt inducing younger sister who can manipulate with the best of them. The resolutions for both came raggedly yet in their own time. I appreciate the fact that neither is tied in a neat little bow and both appear to be sort of ongoing. Just as real life would be.

Smart Bitches Trashy Books reviews Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O'Reilly

Flaws aside, I loved this book. I am horrified at myself that I resisted the appeal of category romance as long as I did, and this book is exactly the kind of kick in the ass I deserve for neglecting some outstanding stories in the category format. Hot Under Pressure depicted realistic, wounded people recognizing that perhaps they’ve outgrown the habits that used to keep them safe. It is a breath-holding, marvelous tense pleasure to witness their potential for happiness, should they take a chance and change directions. (read more)
