~Book Review~ “Hot and Cold” by Amy Briggs and Mikey Lee


Dani Moore, book blogger and recent survivor of a brutal assault, happens to be tagging along with big brother Clayton at the crime scene, because she is terrified to be alone.  Scott is hooked from their first introduction and even though he wasn’t looking for a relationship, finds himself wanting to be in one with Dani.

While working over-time to solve the crime, Scott also begins to pursue a relationship with Dani, who for the first time since her assault, feels like she is “normal” again when hanging out with Scott.  Can Dani feel safe enough to trust Scott and give him her heart and can Scott find a way to divide his time between solving a crime and being the man that Dani needs him to be?

Amy Briggs and Mikey Lee have done an amazing job of creating a thrill ride of good old fashioned crime solving and romance.  I truly enjoyed the banter between Scott and Clayton.  Clayton is a fabulous older brother to Dani and mentor to new investigator Scott.  I also loved reading about the investigative and forensics work they were doing . . . it was written in a realistic way, yet used terminology easy to understand and kept the flow of the plot moving forward in a smooth manner.  Dani and Scott’s blossoming relationship is really heartwarming.  Scott really is a nice guy and is willing to do anything he can to make Dani feel happy and safe with him and Dani, while still recovering, is unexpectedly full of sass and sarcasm and is a great counterpart to Scott in every way.

As a huge fan of crime and suspense with a romantic twist, Hot and Cold was a fun and satisfying read!  5 stars!

Dani Moore has been burned.

Still recovering emotionally from a recent assault, Dani spends her days blogging and riding around with her brother, a homicide detective. She’s going through the motions with no real hope of ever getting back to “normal life.” But when she meets Scott Walker, the city’s new arson investigator, the heat between them is undeniable.

Scott’s the nicest guy she’s ever met. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s so attractive she can barely breathe.

Finally out of school and working his first big arson and murder investigation, Scott hasn’t had time to get involved with anyone. But when he meets Dani he’s convinced that the gorgeous girl who lights a fire in his heart will be his.

He’s unable to resist her, even though she runs hot and cold.
He refuses to give up on her, even though his new partner is Dani’s brother.

Dani may be able to put the past behind her and allow Scott to teach her how to trust again, but will the case go cold while their love ignites?
