Miami Star reporter Rebecca Challenger desperately needs a big story on the serial killer terrorizing the city in order to get a promotion to features writer. Her main source, lead homicide detective Rick Gonzalez, despises reporters. As the pair spar over the story, they’re both jolted by a white-hot current of mutual attraction. They overcome their mistrust to start a promising love affair, but overheard gossip causes Rebecca to shy away. Baffled and hurt by Rebecca’s sudden rejection, Rick vows to forget her. That is, until the serial killer, enraged by Rebecca’s story about him, kidnaps her, and Rick must rescue the woman of his dreams. Can true love endure in the face of misunderstandings and a psychopath’s wiles?
This book is a very short but fascinating read. Miami Heat is just that. It brings the heat and the anxiety. This book has suspense, great sex, a strong leading lady, and a hot detective. I read this book within an hour. It was well written and I couldn’t wait to turn to the next page.
This book starts out with Detective Rick working on a high profile murder investigation. Then enters Rebecca the great reporter. These two bump heads in the beginning but then it turns into so much more.
I am giving this book 4.5 hearts.
