★✩★✩★ 5 – Hot for Teacher – Stars ★✩★✩★
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

“I bet he thinks I'm a mute.”
“Well, even if he doesn't, I'm almost certain he thinks you're the cutest damn mute he's ever seen!”
“Shut up”
“I'm serious, Josie. When I met with him at his office he was all business. Every time I've seen him he's always looking around, taking in his environment. When you're around, you're all he sees. Like everything else just falls away.”

Josie Bennett is as quiet, reserved and shy as they come. The most exciting thing going on in her life is researching fun science projects for her 4th grade class and living through stories from her sister Lorali and best friend Alexa as they try to force her to live and take a chance on someone. Until she meets him.....

Narcotics Detective Kaleb Perez just goes through the motions in life. Sure, he loves his job but aside from the occasional hook-up, he has nothing else. It never really bothered him before, he didn't really know what he was missing, until he met her.....

Ever since they crossed paths, Kaleb has been unable to get Josie out of his head. His attempts to get her to call him are continually thwarted until a break-in at her apartment forces him into her life, and he refuses to ever walk away. Spending time with Kaleb slowly brings Josie out of her shell and what she finds underneath is a sex starved vixen she never knew existed. He shows her everything she has been missing and all she never knew she could have, but can he protect her from the threat hiding around the corner? Will she be able to let him go when the danger has passed, and will he let her?

“What exactly was the hold up?”
“I was busy getting my a** spanked by a hot Puerto Rican sex god!

HASH(0x93cebdd4) out of 5 stars Hot as Hale...my favorite of the series! 8 Sept. 2015
By Melodyslove4books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hot as Hale by Marie James is my favorite book of the series. I absolutely loved Kaleb and Josie together. I was hoping they would end up as a couple and I got my wish. They are so freaking cute together, but hot and sweet at the same time. Josie really surprised me. In the first two books of the series, she seemed so timid, but she definitely wasn't with Kaleb. At first, I thought, are they ever going to get together? Kaleb kept handing her his card and she refused to call first, but he didn't know that...I was so glad when Ian finally enlightened him.

They definitely fell hard for each very quickly and I thought it was sweet how Kaleb was trying to be a gentleman, but once they got past that part, wow...their chemistry was off the charts. Josie seemed so timid in the other books; I didn't expect for her to be so bold when she and Kaleb were together, but I guess that is what love and a hot guy will do for you, right? :) But, even though they had great sex, I knew right away that wasn't what their relationship was all about. Kaleb's protective streak was so sweet and thank goodness he had one because Josie needed protecting. I'm not going to say anymore about the story...only that Kaleb and Josie fulfilled what each other was missing in their lives.

I really enjoyed the whole series by Marie James, but this was my favorite book of the series...and yes, Kaleb is my favorite guy :) In Hot as Hale, she created an awesome story line with complex characters. I enjoyed seeing the characters from the other two books especially because it showed how their relationships had progressed. I recommend Hot as Hale, but also the whole series. The characters are great, the chemistry hot, and the books just hold your attention. I give it 5 stars and think that you should start reading the series now so you can get to this fantastic book. Fabulous work, Marie James!

HASH(0x93912630) out of 5 stars Hot as He$$, that's for sure. 10 Sept. 2015
By Rachel Bound by Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Marie James brings the smut once again. This time it's Josie's turn and boy is she different than we would have thought from the two previous books. She's portrayed up until now as a goody two-shoes...perfect little teacher..well guess what, the teacher is kinky!!! Woo hoo.

This story picks up where Begging for Hale left off.

This one was all about the sexy. It starts off with Josie still refusing to call Kaleb, even though he still gives her business cards with his personal cell number on them. But things are shaken up rather quickly and you're like OH YEAH...lots of conflict, drama....but that part kind of falls by the wayside once Josie and Kaleb get their relationship groove on. So as much as I love a sexy book, I was really looking forward to a little more oomph in the storyline. I loved all the sexy, don't get me wrong..and it's most definitely not too much...but I can see a lot of debate over this one and how Josie acts. But you know...it's those quiet ones you gotta watch out for!

While this wasn't loaded with angst, wasn't overly emotional, it was still an enjoyable read. I just wish for myself and what I like to read, that it would have delved a little deeper into the storyline...it was on the back burner to their sex, then all of a sudden it was the only focus, then it was resolved and we were back to the sexy

HASH(0x93d36414) out of 5 stars Sweet, scorching and loving… the feels are all here! 7 Sept. 2015
By diducky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the third in the Hale series and, while I’ve loved them all, this is my favourite. Josie and Kaleb’s story has been percolating for a while with tantalizing glances and shy smiles between the two offering a taste of what was to come.

“He’s a great detective and I’m sure if he’s given a long enough opportunity he’ll be able to somehow detect the condition of my panties.”

Josie is painfully shy but with a bit of a push from her loving friends she opens up to Kaleb into a world she is excited to explore. Only with him though – his sexy.. everything, has her totally captivated. When danger comes knocking on her door he is the one she turns to and he is more than happy to provide a safe haven for her.

I loved everything about this book. Josie and Kaleb were this wonderful mix of tentative and scorching as their feelings intertwined to make their sheet sessions even hotter (if that’s possible!). Josie is shy but there is nothing hesitant once she embraces her feelings for Kaleb. And the hottie detective is more than just a pretty face, hunky body, sexy eyes… ahem.

When danger turns deadly, everyone jumps into the fray as one of their own is at risk. An explosive ending to a riveting read. I don’t know if there will be more in this series but I sure hope so. Awesome!

HASH(0x93a436e4) out of 5 stars I think this may be my favorite of the series 10 Sept. 2015
By MJBB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I think this may be my favorite of the series.

This is Josie and Kaleb's story, and this was HOT!

Josie is shy, terribly shy, so when Kaleb gave her his card the last three times they met with his personal number on the back, she didn't call.

Kaleb is the detective that Lorali talked to in the very first book, so you have seen him on and off throughout the series. LOL and every time, without fail, he gives Josie his card and she never calls. He is disappointed but he isn't going to give up. One coffee date is all it takes.

A fast paced book with a little more going on than the last book. Kaleb and Josie are a whirlwind of drama, hot sexy times, and had me cracking up at some points. There was a small inconsistency that irked me for a few chapters, but the story ended up distracting me from it.

There were some new characters introduced, not sure if the author is thinking spin off but I will be reading whatever it is. I give this 5 stars.

HASH(0x939128ac) out of 5 stars Reviews from the Heart Review 7 Sept. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hot as Hale is, by far, my favorite in this series. I love Josie and Kaleb. She's this timid, shy little school teacher, and he's this sexy as sin police detective. Neither one knows how to act themselves when they are together.
After Josie recieves several death threats, she finds herself in need of a place to live and Kaleb is all too willing to accommodate her. Quickly, their passion and lust reach a scorching level.
I loved how I found myself smiling very often at their witty banter and playfulness. And Kaleb makes it very easy to love him because he truly cares about her needs.
If I absolutely had to say there was anything I didn't like, it would have to be how often the narration changes between Josie and Kaleb, and I didn't care for how obsessed he was in the beginning about where she was and who she was with when he barely knew her. But those can be overlooked because the story truly is amazing. Can't wait to hear more about the characters in the Hale series.
