He wants seclusion. She craves the spotlight. The deal they make could give them both what they need . . . if they don’t kill each other first. Home renovation has never been hotter!
Navy SEAL Clay "Dirtman" Hagan's retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.
TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word--CANCELED--sends her crashing. Now she's looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show, if they can get around the obnoxious buyer standing between her and the perfect property.
When her competition turns out to be none other than the a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults--and the sparks--fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too and the concept for "Hot House" is born.
If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he gets to walk away with the property in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the house with the Neanderthal control-freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back.
It shouldn't be hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do both agree that they pretty much hate each other and neither one wants a repeat of their one night together . . . So why does it keep happening?
Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini is a full length, standalone enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy with an HEA and NO cliffhanger. It is part of the SEALs in Paradise series world but you DO NOT have to read the other books to enjoy this one.

Hot Opposite Attraction
Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini by Cat Johnson is part of the SEALs in Paradise series but all these books can be read in any order, as they are all stand alone books. This is the first book, by this author, I have had the pleasure to read and review. The book was well written with interesting and exceptionally entertaining characters that will have you laughing one minute and fanning yourself the next.
This is Clay and Tasha’s story—two complete opposites. Clay is a newly retired SEAL who has lived his life in the shadows and plans to enjoy his retirement the same way in a bungalow on the beach. Tasha enjoys the limelight, she is the host of a local daytime television show. Through a series of unfortunate or maybe fortunate events, depending how you look at it, Clay and Tasha are thrown together, as hosts, in a home improvement reality cable show. That is, after they have a pseudo one night stand. Let the fireworks begin. Two complete opposites living, together, working together and of course “listening” to one another… all in 1,000 square feet. They bring arguing to a whole new level, the more they argue the more attracted they become to one another. Who knew arguing could be the best foreplay EVER! I just love these two together, they were fun, entertaining, scary and very hot (Clay mostly), and extremely explosive together. I will definitely be doing some arguing with my husband tonight! So, if you are looking for cute, funny and very steamy read, look no further, you have found your next indulgence. Happy Reading!
