Heat of Passion by Elle Kennedy

Released: March 24, 2009
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Rated: Adult

Carson Scott is the king of one-night stands, so a naughty encounter with a sexy brunette in a nightclub supply closet is right up his alley. When his mysterious seductress disappears, he-s blindsided by an unfamiliar emotion-disappointment. One thing-s for sure-if he ever encounters his lady of the evening again, he won-t let her slip away so easily.
Between her catering business, family issues, and her broken heart, Holly Lawson has too much on her plate to think about committing to a serious relationship. Hot, sweaty, anonymous sex with a Navy SEAL-now that sounds like the perfect appetizer to take the edge off. With no plans to ever see him again, she indulges in a fling. Only to come face to face with him weeks later while working a wedding.
Worse, Carson is hell-bent on the one thing she doesn-t want. The R word. She has no intention of falling for him, but in the face of his seductive, mind-changing methods, her resistance is crumbling...

What I thought:

I liked this novel, it was a freebie from Amazon.  I was glad I grabbed it.  I will probably invest in the rest of the series.

This was a fun read, but I don't think I would classify it was an Erotica.  While it has some nice scenes in this one mostly it focused on the relationships than the sex.  I was really interested in getting to know the characters and I did feel it came up a bit short on that. I never felt really connected to the characters and wasn't emotionally vested in how it would end, but I'm still going to give the rest a try!

I did read it out of order, not knowing (nor was the series order posted) that there is a book before this one, called Heat of the Moment.  Amazon does list it as a separate series, but it is the first with this set of characters.

I gave it 3 stars.
