New Release+Review: Hot Stuff by Kim Karr

Title: Hot Stuff
Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2017


Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words. 
Ready to score.

I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

You get the picture.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.

He’s meant to be a distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren’t meant to be broken.       

Or are they?​


Lucas Carrington’s life is all about football.  Going all the way to the NFL has been his dream for a long time and what he’s been working for all along.  Now he finds himself drafted into the one team he despised, in the city he wanted to leave behind and with the hots for the head coach’s daughter.  This is definitely NOT the life he expected when reaching for the biggest goal of his life.
Gillian Whitney is determined to enjoy her last summer as an athletic intern with her father’s team before she gets her doctorate and goes after the normal life he’s always wanted for her, but then she met the new quarterback by way of injury.  He’s too full of himself, but so handsome it drives her to distraction and things will just go wrong.
Lucas and Gillian are instantly attracted to each other, sparks are flying like a 4th of July firework display and, though they both know a relationship is off-limits and the cons are way more than the pros, there is no stopping the lust train and they are going for the ride of their lives!
I really enjoyed this book.  Despite the fact that I’m not football savvy, I could follow the way it’s written and all the references to the sport and I could understand how these couple lives and breathes the sport.  Then, there’s their personalities, the relationship they develop and how their feelings grow and evolve.
The story is well written and flows effortlessly.  I liked the characters, their interaction and backstories, knowing how these two were shaped into the people they are and what drives them as well as the secondary characters who somehow affect the decisions they make.
In my book, Lucas and a Gillian are a couple one should not miss.

Touchdown Hot Stuff!  Your life revolves around a football field.  You eat, sleep and dream to be the starring quarterback, nothing will stop you to be the best.  But what happens when you think something of the worst, it usually means that, its you’re greatest gift. 

Growing up on a football field, Gillian Whitney loved the sport.  Her life and passion was football.  So it was no surprise to be work as athletic trainer.   Her last summer as an intern for her father, was definitely a learning experience in more ways the one.  

Lucas Carrington’s goal was to get out of Chicago and to be a hot shot QB for the Patriots.  Chicago was bad memories and he wanted to get out of dodge.  But when Head Coach calls you on draft day and offers you starting line up as the Quarterback.  You can’t refuse.  With a chip in his shoulder, he thinks nothing can stop him. Unless he doesn’t pay attention and falls while looking at athletic trainer while calling her Strawberry Fields.  

Lucas and Gillian are like a moth to the flame.  Instant attraction and chemistry, they can’t stop themselves by being together.  With being secretive and having a secret rendezvous, Lucas and Gillian become stronger.  They both have a painful past.  By being together, they repair their broken souls.  They are stronger together than being apart.

Disappointed, she unwrapped her arms from her body, and then pivoted on her toe in the direction of the open door. “Then it looks like we have nothing further to discuss, Lucas.”
I reached for her and tugged her to me. “I don’t want to want you,” I breathed, my mouth hovering just centimeters from hers.
Gillian tried to pull away, but not whole-heartedly. If she wanted me to let her go, I would have, but I knew she didn’t. “Then stop,” she sighed.
I took her face in my hands. “I can’t. I don’t know how to.”
“Neither do I,” she whispered.
Unable to stop myself, I crashed my lips to hers and drove my tongue into her mouth to retrace every inch that I had explored days ago.
