Simply put, I want to live in a Max Monroe book. The newest book in their Single Dad Collection, Hot Stuff, is the easy read you need right now. The story follows Garrett, a newly divorced single dad of fraternal twins, and Lauren, a San Diego native who left to go to medical school and become a doctor and has now returned to a new practice. Garrett and Lauren’s meet-cute will make you smile wide. In fact, this entire story will do that. From the first chapter to the epilogue, I simply couldn’t stop smiling over their journey. Of Max Monroe’s books, this one feels like the easiest in terms of story tension. There is a great story here with the realities of being a firefighter as the complication for Lauren and Garrett’s story. However, Max Monroe make Garrett so thoughtful, insightful, and mature that the issues with his job never spoil his burgeoning relationship with Lauren. Even more, much like Holley in Single Dad Seeks Juliet along with other Max Monroe heroines, Lauren is quirky and intelligent. She becomes the perfect partner for Garrett, causing this story to have a high swoon level. She also adds in some necessary laughs, a hallmark of Max Monroe’s storytelling. Basically, her soulful relationship with her pet fish, Fat Frank, will make you titter with glee.
If you read Holley and Jake’s book, and you felt sorry for Garrett, do not despair. Max Monroe have absolutely outfitted him with a story that will quite literally steal your heart. If you need a light, easy read, Hot Stuff is the book you need.
In love and romance,
