Review: Learning To Love The Heat by Everly Lucas

Learning to Love the Heat by [Lucas, Everly]

What she needs most might be what she least expects…

Living without air conditioning in a Philadelphia heat wave has Claire on the brink of a total meltdown. When she escapes her overheated apartment to spend a day at the park, the last thing she expects—or wants—is for a gorgeous guy to chat her up. But his sweet smile and nerdy charm are impossible for even Claire to resist.

Patience and persistence go hand in hand…

For Ben, Claire is the One, but there’s a small snag—she’s terrified of a man’s touch. But now that he’s found her, he’ll never let her go, even if he never gets to hold her.
Another snag? Her obvious attraction to his best friend.

Sometimes it takes fire to wash you clean…

Ben respects Claire’s firm boundaries, but Andy crashes right through them. He’s arrogant, crude, a total jackass…and criminally sexy. 
Even if she can fix what’s broken inside her, how will she choose between the delicious slow burn she feels with Ben and the explosive inferno Andy ignites in her? 
Can they find their happy ending without three hearts going up in flames?

*This is a STANDALONE novel with a slow burn, a seriously steamy ending, and an unconventional HEA*

Learning to Love the Heat by Everly Lucas

During a scorching hot summer in Philadelphia, Claire Templeton does anything to avoid spending time at her basement, no A/C hellhole of an apartment.  That’s how she ends up at a park and meets Ben Cohen and his best friend Andy DelVecchio, two very attractive and accomplished men that will change life as she knows it.

Claire has some crippling issues that don’t allow her to move on from her past, Ben is a loving, patient man who is sure she’s meant to be part of his life and Andy is a strong alpha ready to take matters into his own hands whatever the costs.

This story is well written and I found it engaging, which I think are favorable points for a debut author.  Unfortunately, that’s where it all stops for me.

I wanted to read this ARC because the blurb caught my attention and seemed like a plot for a good love triangle, but this was not the case and I was rather disappointed.  Still, I think it’s a good story, just not for me.
