Too Hot To Handle by Doris O'Connor

Too Hot To Handle by Doris O'connor

When firefighter Alex Giovanni returns to his old neighborhood to fulfill family obligations, he is reunited with the woman inhabiting his dreams. The sexy siren ran out on him after one explosive night many years ago. Hiding behind her sensible clothes she portrays the perfect image of Miss Prim and Proper and Alex vows to unlock the passionate woman he remembers. Mixing business with pleasure has never been so much fun.

Kitty Jenkins’ orderly life gets turned upside down when Alex walks into her school. Their passion filled night four years ago has left her with a secret that threatens to tear them apart. Giving into Alex is out of the question, regardless of how much her body craves his touch.

When secrets spill and disaster strikes, can their passion turn into love?

What an amazing book! I honestly have hardly taken my eyes away from my kindle today as I needed to finish this.

Everyone knows how much I love Doris Club Ink books, but I think I may be falling for another family now! Mr Giovanni is so damn sexy, and a fire fighter too? Well, that just made my day ;)


At the start of the book when Kitty meets Alex and ends up having a passionate one night stand with him, I was glad she got a good night. But as the story moved on and 4 years later, Alex ends up back in her life, I was thrilled! And I just knew he had to be the father of her son too. Little Noah was such a sweet character in the book, bless him. 

One character I couldn't stand at first was Stella (mamma Giovanni), but as the story moves on, you begin to understand her a lot more, and I actually began to rather like her. Irene on the other hand.... Grrrrr!!! And not in a good way! I would have punched her a lot sooner than Kitty did!

The accident, I was so sad when this part of the story happened. My first thought was that he'd been hurt in a fire, but I never thought he'd been hit by a bloody car! I was praying along with them that Alex would wake, and was so glad when he did. And I will admit, in the last chapter of the book, when he says the best part of their wedding was when he stood and walked towards his bride to be at the alter, I did shed a tear or two!

The sex scenes were amazing, I loved how Kitty and Alex just couldn't keep their hands off each other anytime they were alone together. I could feel the passion between them. 

I really really enjoyed this adn am so glad I picked it up! I really want to move onto the second in the series now too, Too Cold To Love. I think I'l have to buy it lol!

Well done Doris, great story, and I think Mr G is fan-bloody-tastic!
