Review by Lilac

Bad things always seem to come in threes, or so Sonia St. Marie discovers as she is kicked out of her apartment during a blizzard, her job teaching art classes at an adult center gets cut and she catches her boyfriend in bed with her best friend. Needless to say, it’s not been the best of days. That is, until Archer DeAngelo shows up in his black SUV, smelling of exotic spices and evoking a head full of sensual fantasies.

For years, Archer has been the distraction in the back of Sonia’s mind, tempting her to wonder about his decadent lifestyle and the women he’s pleasured. Just looking at him makes her dream of all the things she wants to do with him, and now that she’s free from her philandering boyfriend, Gabriel, there’s nothing to stand in her way.

Seeing Sonia’s distress at her homeless state, Archer offers her a place to stay–his condo overlooking Central Park. Having nowhere else to go in such inclement weather, Sonia takes him up on his offer for shelter and much more. The sexual tension that always simmered between them goes into overdrive under such close proximity. The fact Archer has made it his mission to help her put her life back together has its own advantages. But then again, Archer is only doing his job.

A Hot Day in Heaven is a great read with a fascinating twist. When Sonia St. Marie is dumped by her boyfriend and kicked out of her apartment she has no idea where she’ll go, but when Archer DeAngelo shows up and offers her a place to stay she finds his offer one hard to pass up. Having always been intrigued and attracted to Archer, Sonia soon finds the passion between them heating up as they grow closer together and more is revealed about the mysterious Archer as he helps her put her life back together.

Without revealing too much, this was a fascinating and scorching love story containing a twist that I found to be very unique. I really liked the characters of the story and could sympathize with Sonia over her despair and the confusion that she suddenly feels because of the changes in her life and budding relationship with Archer. However, at times she did seem a bit too trusting when it comes to Archer. At first it is unclear what exactly is going on with the mysterious Archer, but the unknown keeps you reading. I was just as intrigued as Sonia by the mystery that surrounded Archer and as more was revealed about this fascinating character it all started to fall into place and make sense. Although, I wish the pace of the story had been a bit faster as it did seem to drag a bit as things were revealed about Archer and his friends.

However, I found this story to be a unique and fun story filled with passion and characters that are hard to forget.
