Book Description

"Wrong for each other" never felt more right...

Even a lifelong traveller like Harper Summerville has to admire the scenery in Razor Bay, Washington. There’s the mountains. The evergreens. The water. And Max Bradshaw, the incredibly sexy deputy sheriff. Still, Harper’s only here for the summer, working covertly for her family’s foundation. And getting involved with this rugged, intense former Marine would be a definite conflict of interest – professionally and personally.

Max’s scarred childhood left him determined to put down roots in Razor Bay, yet one look at Harper – a woman who happily lives out of a suitcase – leaves him speechless with desire for things he’s never had. He might not be big on talking, but Max’s toe-curling kisses are getting the message across loud and clear.

Harper belongs here, with him, because things are only beginning to heat up...

3.0 out of 5 stars light easy read 19 Aug. 2013
By Sian Louise VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading the first book it was nice to have Max's story, and it was also good to read more from the previous characters and how they were getting on etc.

I did like the character of Harper, even if in the end I thought of views were completely skewed and her bad relationship with her mother was pretty much her own fault. Max was the more likeable of the two, but maybe that's because we had some of him in the previous book and so it was nice to get more of a background on him and his personality, why he was the way he was etc. I also enjoyed the way him and his brothers' (I have drawn a complete blank on his name...oops) relationship had improved and it was nice to read how close they were becoming as brothers and as friends. The third brother definitely is going to introduce a new dynamic to their relationship and its already obvious who his love interest is going to be. I am intrigued by this brother and the relationship he supposedly had with their father and because of this I will definitely be on the lookout for the third book.

Overall I cannot say I loved this book. It wasn't unput-downable and I wasn't desperate to get back to it but overall it was an enjoyable easy non-taxing read. As much as I have always loved this author, I am finding some of the stories and writing a little repetitive but for the moment I will continue reading her new books and hoping for something amazing to come out from her. I do still thoroughly recommend her older books though, as so far her older books remain my favourite.

A heartwarming romance that will keep you smiling from ear to ear, Some Like It Hot is an absolutely delightful addition to Susan Andersen's Razor Bay series. Harper Summerville loves traveling and meeting new people. Max Bradshaw has strong family ties to Razor Bay and has no intentions of ever leaving. Their electrifying sexual attraction brings them together but will Harper's secrets and her wandering feet tear them apart?

Introduced in That Thing Called Love, Max and Harper are very appealing protagonists. Max is a multi-layered character with a surprising amount of depth. In the beginning, he is pretty serious and reserved but once he begins to come out of his shell, he is quite charming. Max still carries the emotional baggage from his childhood, but he uses his experiences to connect with the troubled teenagers at the boys club in town. Max and his half-brother Jake's attempts to overcome their troubled past have successfully mended the rift between them and some of their scenes are the best ones in the novel.

Harper is a breath of fresh air and I found her an easy character to relate to. She has an enthusiastic and bubbly personality and her energy leaps off the pages. Harper is at odds with her mother over her vagabond lifestyle, and their relationship is loving but contentious. She has easily settled in to her (temporary) life in Razor Bay and she is quickly forming close friendships with her boss Jenny and another local Tasha. Although she is quickly growing to love her new life, Harper panics at the thought of settling in one place permanently.

Max and Harper initially harbor misconceptions about one another, and the slow buildup of their relationship allows them to get know each other. Underlying their growing friendship is a delicious sexual tension and in a refreshing change of pace, Max is the one who is hesitant to take their relationship to the next level. When they finally do give into their passion, their sex scenes are sensual yet full of emotion.

While their relationship is progressing relatively smoothly, Harper's departure is drawing ever closer. Max is beginning to become suspicious of her seemingly furtive behavior and when he uncovers the real reason Harper is in Razor Bay, his insecurities cause him to lash out at her. Given his past, Max's reactions are realistic and once his initial shock has passed, he is able to look at their situation more objectively. When Max proposes a compromise to Harper, will her fears keep them from reconciling?

While Some Like It Hot is well-written, some of the dialogue and phrases are a little outdated. I was fully immersed in the story and while it didn't lessen my enjoyment of the novel, it occurs often enough that I kept thinking there was no way someone that age would use that particular saying. It is an minor distraction but one worth mentioning.

A sweet, yet sexy, novel, Some Like It Hot is a perfect blend of family, friendship and romance. The cast of characters is diverse, beautifully developed and immensely likable. The plot is compelling and the conflict that arises between Max and Harper is believable and it is resolved fairly quickly. Late in the novel, the introduction of a surprise character with unexpected (and intriguing) ties to Razor Bay leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next installment in Susan Andersen's fabulous Razor Bay series.

I received a complimentary copy for review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Geat Addition to the series! 30 July 2013
By Sharon Redfern - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read Susan Andersen since she started writing and she never disappoints. Her latest book, Some Like It Hot, is the second one in her Razor Bay series. This book tells the story of Harper and Max a couple who are definitely looking for different things in life. Harper grew up in a world traveling family and cannot imagine putting roots down in one place. Her desire to be a rolling stone has put her at odds with her mother and brother who prefer a more grounded life after years of moving for Harper's late father's career. Harper has come to Razor Bay to evaluate a non-profit for troubled boys that has applied for a grant to the foundation her family administers. As part of the foundation guidelines, no-one in town knows who Harper really is.
Max has grown up in Razor Bay and his childhood was not a happy one. His father dumped Max and his mother for wife number two and proceeded to create a new family as if the first one never existed. Max has worked hard to connect with his half-brother Jake after years of animosity. Max's mother still harbors bitter resentment of Jake and her ex-husband. Max is looking for the white picket fence life that he never had as a child. He finds himself hotly attracted to Harper and turns into a big brick of stiff when he is around her.
I really loved how both of these characters were so secure in their jobs but so insecure about their worthiness to be with the other person. When they finally melt the ice and hook up it is pretty sizzling but also really sweet and funny. Their interactions are so realistic on many levels with each other and with the other characters in the book. The growing relationship between Max and Jake continues from the previous book and is heartwarming but not soppy. Ms. Andersen has done a great job of integrating the fact that Harper is bi-racial into the story in a way that doesn't hit you over the head with it but acknowledges it subtle ways throughout the book. There is miscommunication and mistrust on both sides of Max and Harper's love affair but it is dealt with and as one expects it all ends well. The signs are all there for a romance for Tasha with a late coming new character and I'm excited to read all about it!

I think I'm done with Susan Andersen. I discovered her when I read PLAYING DIRTY and loved it. However, this series just isn't quite working for me.

SOME LIKE IT HOT picks up right after That Thing Called Love (Hqn). Life in Razor Bay is moving forward. Jenny hires Harp Summerville to help out at the resort for the summer. However, Harper is there "undercover" for her family's foundation to investigate a local charity. This brings her in close company with deputy sheriff Max Bradshaw who sends all his free time at the charity.

Again, I feel like the characters are living in the past. I found myself wondering (once again) with the author's choice of words, style of dress, etc. There are several teenage boys in the story, yet these teens tend to use language from the 90's. When the gang goes out dancing, Max wears a silk shirt (90's again) and just acts like any man who wants a woman should love to dance.

I really wanted to LOVE this book, but found myself only feeling so-so about it. I know this series continues since Jake and Max met another half-brother they had no idea existed, but I find myself content to just let it all go. I'm not even curious enough to pick up the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good read with a surprising twist! 5 Aug. 2013
By The Book Reading Gals - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Title: Some Like It Hot

Series: Razor Bay

Author: Susan Andersen

Genre: Contemporary

"Wrong for each other" never felt more right... Even a lifelong traveler like Harper Summerville has to admire the scenery in Razor Bay, Washington. There's the mountains. The evergreens. The water. And Max Bradshaw, the incredibly sexy deputy sheriff. Still, Harper's here only for the summer, working covertly for her family's foundation. And getting involved with this rugged, intense former marine would be a definite conflict of interest--professionally and personally.

Max's scarred childhood left him determined to put down roots in Razor Bay, yet one look at Harper--a woman who happily lives out of a suitcase--leaves him speechless with desire for things he's never had. He might not be big on talking, but Max's toe-curling kisses are getting the message across loud and clear. Harper belongs here, with him, because things are only beginning to heat up....

When I picked up That Thing Called Love the first book in this series I wasn't sure what to expect. I've tried reading Susan Andersen over the years and have never been able to get into her books. However there was something about this town and this man I had to read.

However as I read Jake's story I found myself drawn more and more to his older brother Max and what drove him. I've waited a year to discover who Max is and what drove him. And I have to say I love Max. For me this book was all about Max. While I knew he had a heroine, I didn't care to know about her. Not like I usually do. So long as she took care of the enormous heart that Max has I didn't care who she was or what she did.

This is a guy who as a small child had his life ripped apart and never put back together. That is until he joined the Marines. Now he's a deputy in the Razor Bay Sheriff's department and having a relationship with his brother for the first time in his life. All through out this book you see how the events in his childhood effected him, and still effect him as an adult.

One of my favorite scenes is Max's birthday. I may have teared up a bit at this scene.

When Max reaches his breaking point and tells Harper for once he wants to come first in someone's life, that just once he wants to someone's number one priority my heart broke for him.

This is one of those books that will fully engage your least when it comes to Max. Like I said before Harper wasn't really on my radar as far this book was concerned.

Not that she wasn't a great character, she was. She managed to see to the heart of who Max was and what he needed. Most of the time she was great at it. However when it became serious she panicked and hurt him. BUT she immediately knew how much she hurt him and set about making it right.

This was a good read. It kept me engaged in the story, wanting to know how Max and Harper were going to have their HEA. Then there's the twist that comes along in regards to Max and his brother Jake. A twist I can't wait to see resolved in the next book. I will say to truly understand the relationship between Max and Jake you need to read his book.

Grade B+

4.0 out of 5 stars What Fun! 6 Aug. 2013
By Janet - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Great fun from Susan Anderson. She really delivers the heat and romance in this latest installment from her Razor Bay series. The book stands alone quite well, but why not treat yourself and read the series. Her characters are multi-dimensional, not only the primary, but the secondary as well. The setting almost becomes another character. The sex is sensual and passionate. The happily ever after is satisfying, and the pacing is even throughout. Her dialogue is witty and original and this was a fun, great read.
