This is a story of lost love and second chances. John and Sammy were attracted to each other as teenagers, but along with fear, bad decisions, and neither of them being honest about their
real feelings, Sammy married bad-boy John’s older, safer, more reliable brother.
And John, not willing to deal with the idea of Sammy “playing house” with his brother Pat, left
20 years pass, and during that time Sammy and Pat divorce. Interestingly, in all the years of their
marriage and even after it ended, Sammy always thought and dreamed about the one
brother she really wanted–John O’Malley.
John and Sammy are reunited at a family reunion, sparks ignite, and they find themselves not only succumbing to their lust, but can they finally admit, love?
I really like the idea of second chance love stories. Even though this is a short story,
the author does a good job at giving the reader enough insight into their back
story to “feel” the longing between the two characters, Sammy and John. The idea
of reuniting 20 years later at the family reunion of your ex-husband might be a
little hard to swallow for some. Especially for some of us who would rather
endure shards imbedded under our fingernails before attending the family reunion
of our ex-husband. However putting that personal thought aside, when you add in
the fact the one man who you want to see might be in attendance, the backdrop
of the reunion camping site is more believable to this reviewer.
The loves scenes are hot, with a few repeated lines such as, “Oh, God,” but for the most part that didn’t detour the reader from the heat between the characters. In actuality, you may end up fanning
yourself a couple of times while reading them. Without giving much more of the story away, I enjoyed reading Hot Spot, and look forward to reading more work from this author.
