Getting Hot with the Scot by Melonie Johnson


Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt...

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
I thoroughly enjoyed this lighthearted story about Cassie and Logan. Logan's pranks have helped him avoid dealing with the grief caused by the loss of his father. Cassie, on the other hand, is wanting to move on to serious reporting and believes that being an unwitting participant in one of his sketches will set her career back by a landslide.

Logan has had his sights set on Cassie since he first met her in that drafty old castle. While he is pursuing his dream of making it big, Cassie is also making her dreams come true by creating a dialogue to help children's literacy.

One slip of the tongue, one moment of weakness leads to a potential career crash for Cassie. Logan didn't mean to share the video but the effects of it could lead to the loss of her job.

Only time will tell if the aftereffects of the leaked video will lead both the destruction of career and the romance that Logan has built with Cassie.

This is the first in a new series, and is one which I will continue to read. It was easy reading, with some silly banter, some fun flirtations, and a sweet story at its heart. As a Brit I had a few issues with how they managed their itinerary, but overall it was fun.

A group of old college girlfriends on a trip round Europe together is a great starting point for a story. We get to know them and their foibles in a really natural way through the story, to the point where I could describe each one and their interests, but having learned them organically. This is a sign of good writing for me. I am really happy that we will be meeting them again in future installments and finding out how they reach their happily ever afters too.

Cassie and Logan are a good pairing, because unbeknown to them, they have a career in common and a future which would work. I thought this was a clever way of making what should have been a crazy fling actually work into a romance with a future. The dilemma that Logan faced was well played, and his difficulty in deciding how to reconcile head and heart worked.

Overall a good read, with a happy vibe and a desirable outcome – thank you, Melonie Johnson.
