When a daredevil football stud tries to get into your yoga pants, you know class is about to get interesting. The New York Times bestselling author of Down & Dirty returns with Hot & Heavy.
Sage: Although I come from a long line of free-spirited yoga teachers, sometimes I wish my life could be just a little more normal. More ordinary. More boring. Easier said than done, especially since it’s on me to keep my family’s studio up and running every time my mother wanders off to find herself. But that’s when my best friend sends me a sexy new student: Shawn Wilson, a slick wide receiver with a death wish and a chip on his broad, muscular, irresistible . . . wait, what were we talking about again?
Shawn: They say I’m an adrenaline junkie. The truth is, I only really feel alive when I’m risking my life: Snowboarding, parachuting, BASE jumping . . . the kind of fun team management considers breach of contract. When my coach orders me to take yoga to “center myself,” I’m pissed—until I get an eyeful of delectable, flexible Sage Kaufmann. Unfortunately, she’s determined to keep things between us strictly business. But if Sage can get me to enjoy downward dog, maybe I can convince her that scorching hot sex could be the perfect shot of adrenaline.

“Is it wrong that I want to lick him?
Hot & Heavy is a standalone, though each book focuses on a different player on the Lightning football team. The first book in the series, Down & Dirty features Hunter & Emerson which happen to be the best friends of Shawn & Sage which are the H/h in this story. So, you can expect to spend some time with some sexy players and some fun friends in every book. What’s not to love about that?
One of the things that I love about this story is the broken characters. They are both running from demons and their pain is reflected in their lifestyles. They seem to be polar opposites, him being a daredevil in the spotlight and her being an OCD buttoned-up control freak. But when they accidentally run into each other there’s no denying their #InstaLust for each other. Personally, I think that even if she hadn’t broken her #TwoDrinkRule she would still have noticed him. “—Let’s be honest—I’d have to be dead not to notice this guy. Notice him, hell, just knowing he’s in the room is suddenly taking up all the oxygen.”
Shawn is very likable. He’s not rude, cocky and arrogant like many of the celebrity athletes I’ve read before, but he’s also used to women flocking to him. He’s not ever had to make the first move, he just shows up and they come to him. But when he sees her for the first time she makes eye contact, but she doesn’t approach him. They eye-fuck each other, but she doesn’t take it any further. It’s driving him crazy.
Sage is not looking for trouble, but she finds it. “—the moment our gazes lock, I forget about normal. Forget about usual. And instead try to keep my panties from dropping straight to the floor.” She’d never had that kind of reaction to a man before and doesn’t quite know what to do with it. He doesn’t approach her, but she feels the heat in his stare. And let me tell you, I felt the heat too! My Kindle was almost too hot to hold while reading this story, but you couldn’t have pried it out of my hands if you tried.
Yup, I’m addicted to reading Tracy Wolff romance. I happened upon the first book by accident, then I devoured her backlist, and now I get excited with anticipation with the announcement of each new title. She never disappoints. The line forms here…
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
