Book Review: Her Hot Number

Her Hot Number by Talia Hunter: One bad boy billionaire plus one sexy geek equals one hot fling.

It's a travel nightmare for mathematician Caylee Reynolds. It's bad enough that her luggage was lost en route to her conference, but when she arrives at the Australian resort and learns that she's also lost her reservation, Caylee’s ready to break down. Then things get even worse. The resort is owned by Blake Sampson―the bad boy who once took everything from her...

Blake thought he’d left his troubled past far behind him. Then the sexy-but-proper math guru he’s never been able to forget walks into his lobby. Hoping to show Caylee he’s changed, he offers to share his suite. Except the attraction between them only grows in such close quarters―exponentially.

Even though Blake’s incredibly successful—and hot—Caylee’s not sure she can risk her heart again. Not after the way he destroyed her trust when he disappeared years ago. But if she's wrong in her calculations, she could lose everything...

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review**

Her Hot Number provided a simple, fast-paced read for me. The story of Caylee, math geek and introvert happens to bump into Blake, self-made billionaire boy from her past while she’s in the middle of a travel crisis. Boy helps girl with crisis, old feelings long buried resurrect from the depths of their beings, and a push/pull of emotion ensues.

The writing in Her Hot Number engages the reader in a way that makes the story easy to read. This was surface level reading, entertainment only reading – an easy beach read. The emotions from the past I thought would have served greater purpose had they been expounded upon more. Even the depth of the conflict both characters are fighting against could have ran a bit deeper to give the characters a more dimensional feel.

The feelings the two of them had for each other seemed forced based on residual feelings from the past – there wasn’t a lot of present as each kept referring back to the past without really revealing much depth about it. Their relationship progressed rather quickly with Caylee making changes encouraged by Blake. Those parts I loved – billionaire orchestrates a confidence boost because he recognized geek’s inner beauty so innately he exploits an outer beauty she hides.

I never lost interest in their story and felt content to finish until they reached their inevitable resolution and happily ever after - this made the book okay for me. The epilogue gave me a great feeling of satisfaction about the story and probably helped bump up my rating. I think the story was okay but didn’t love it. It’s a shorter book and easy to get through. Contentment is the best way to describe how I felt about it. Not overly satisfied or dissatisfied.
