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.

Definitely a “Hot & Heavy” Read
*Received an ARC of Hot & Heavy from the publisher via Netgalley. This is my honest review, no compensation was given.*
Hot & Heavy is the second book in the Lightning Series, although I didn't read the first book, Down & Dirty, I did really enjoyed this book, which I feel can be read as a standalone. But now I will definitely go back and read the first book.
The title of this book is pure perfection, Hot & Heavy is a smokin hot read. This is Sage and Shawn's story, and ohh my what an explosive one it is. These two are both broken souls. They meet in a bar and have a frenzied sexual encounter....In the back of the bar, in an alcove, against the wall. After this encounter Sage, always the good girl, that doesn't do even one week stands not alone a one night stand, literally runs out of the bar, leaving a very stunned Shawn. Shawn who is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL can't believe that this girl just ran out on him. Girls just don't do that, they chase him.
As chance would have it, or actually more like mutual friends would have it, these two are thrown together again. These two characters have very different personalities, Sage is spunky, but also a bit of a fuddy-duddy who likes to have everything in her life under control and leave nothing to chance. Shawn is a risk taker and an adrenaline junkie always looking for his next high. I did enjoy the ups and downs of their courtship, and did love the way Shawn had to do some serious chasing, but it did seemed a little rushed at times. I guess I just wanted more. I loved the intense chemistry between Sage and Shawn, and Ms Wolff has definitely perfected the wickedly naughty scenes. This is a very hot read and I totally recommend it.
As fun as it is hot!
This is such a fantastic follow up in the Lightening series. The characters are exciting and fun. While these characters appear to be complete opposites they are very much alike. They are both kind of lost and trying to find their places in the world. Even though the places they are right now seem to have almost been chosen for them if they weren't there then they would have never connected. I know which character I'm hoping comes next in the series but I know that wherever this adventure takes us it's going to be a wild ride!
I enjoyed reading this captivating story. It is the second book in the Lightning series and each book follows a different football player on the San Diego Lightning football team. Since I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, I was excited to read this book chronicling Shawn and Sage’s story. It is witty with a lot of sexual tension and great dynamics between the characters. In fact, the characters were a big factor in what makes this story so good.
From the moment Shawn sees Sage, he is taken in by everything about her. Sage is like a breath of fresh air and different from the usual girls he meets. She is low maintenance and easy to be with and she keeps Shawn on his toes. For the first time, Shawn has to work to get a woman to go out with him. I loved these two together and fell in love with Shawn. He has been in the NFL for eight years as a wide receiver. He is charming, kind and genuine. However, he also has demons that make him reckless and emotionally closed off.
When Sage first meets Shawn she has no idea who he is, but the intense feelings he brings out in her make her uncomfortable. Sage is feisty and vulnerable but she lacks confidence. When she discovers who Shawn is, she doesn’t understand how he could possibly be interested in her. Sage is the opposite of Shawn. She is an accountant and is cautious and doesn’t like to take a risk. She tries to keep her defenses up around Shawn but finds it hard to ignore him. Shawn is not the type of man Sage wants to be attracted to.
Shawn and Sage have an instant attraction and sizzling chemistry. They are both flawed and vulnerable and suffered from childhood trauma. They are great together and I loved all their interactions. This enthralling story is fun and incredibly hot.
