The Hotter the Love

After sexy cover model Yushka proposed, life is more turbulent than ever for erotic romance author Andrea. He is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend, who says she doesn’t want to keep it. How will Andrea’s sons take upcoming life changes? To make things more complicated, her ex goes to great lengths to coax her back, and one of her sons’ girlfriend is a tad too interested in Andrea’s young and very handsome fiancé…

On the writing front, Andrea anxiously awaits news on her latest manuscript submission, and she has to decide whether to accept her publisher’s offer to model in a sexy photo shoot—the same kind she and Yushka did in Cannes—in the hopes of making a new “Cover Photo of the Year”. Considering the erotic poses the previous photographer demanded, can Andrea model with another guy other than Yushka?

I’ve loved all three of the books in the trilogy and I’m kinda sad that this is the end of the journey for these two lovers, and what a journey it’s been.
Lea knows how to tear at your heart strings, and to pull you right into the story with her characters. Just fab! Read it, you won’t be disappointed 🙂

I was extremely lucky to receive an advanced reader copy of this final book in Lea’s Trilogy – Hot Model Mine.

A lot happened in Book two – Mine to Love and the Hotter the Love picks up the story. Our sexy cover model Yushka and hard working author Andrea are working hard to make their relationship work even with several obstacles in their path. There are many decisions to be made before this couple can have a chance at a happily ever after but I was rooting for them from day one. The chemistry between these two is off the charts hot and really has been since they met.

Yushka is an amazing character and I absolutely loved the way Lea wrote him throughout this series. He is a truly good, kind, straight forward person and you felt it in every word. He will hold a special place in my heart for a very long time.

You can absolutely read this book as a standalone. Lea does a great job of recapping the first two books to get you up to speed and then finishing out this love story. Go pick it up today!

Sigh, what a sweet end to the story. This book was the hottest of the three and intense with the situations our two lovers found themselves in. So glad to see they have their happily ever after.

Yushka is a sexy cover model that proposes to his author girlfriend Andrea but nothing is going to be easy in this relationship…

I haven’t read the first two books in the series and I think you really need too. I didn’t feel the chemistry between Yushka and Andrea at first. It did slowly build up as I read the book and by the end I really enjoyed them both. There is a lot to follow in this book. The relationship between Andrea and Yushka. Yushka’s pregnant Ex. Andrea’s son’s girlfriend hitting on her fiancé. Andrea’s ex trying to get her back. Working with a new model in suggestive poses. I think it all plays out well, it’s just a lot of story for this short of a book.

I did absolutely love the wedding at the ending! I’d definitely check out more books by this author.
