Romantic Times BOOKclub
"When you think of passion, drama and heartwarming stories, think Susan Mallery."

The term “sizzling” doesn’t even describe Susan Mallery’s third book in her Buchanan series SIZZLING. It’s personally my favorite, a hard choice to make but her two main characters Reid and Lori are amazing. Spirited, smart mouths both of them in a battle of wills testing each other each step of the way. The chemistry between Reid and Lori is sensual and then throw in a terminally ill sister, a cranky old grandmother, a difficult mom and a strong family with so many dynamics........It's hot, passionate and full of is simply a wonderful story.

Reid an ex-professional baseball pitcher, and knock down gorgeous male with a reputation for being a ladies man is faced with a problem…..a reporter who is after his hide and reputation so she states that he falls short in the bedroom. Because he’s a celebrity and also owns a Seattle sports bar, he is faced with the press hounding him and the embarrassment it’s created. On top of everything, he has to hire nurses to care for his impossible grandmother who has the reputation of a barracuda and is simply an old and angry woman.

Enter, the sweet and smart Lori who gives both Reid and his grandmother a run for their money. Lori doesn’t let him get away with a thing and gives him plenty to think about. However, she has a horrible crush on Reid and fights it every step of the way. She doesn’t want to be another “notch”.

This was such an entertaining book. It was so full of warmth and the characters wormed their way into my heart. The Buchanan family series has been such an entertaining series set in Seattle with each family member being unique and full of depth. Again, Susan Mallery brings such enjoyment to her readers especially with this book, SIZZLING.

Book Description

A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper's just the first bad news. Reid's grandmother Gloria's broken hip means she needs constant care--but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with him. So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm. Lori's never wasted her time with amoebas like Reid Buchanan. So why are her well-fortified defenses starting to crumble under the force of his sexy smile--and the kindness he shows her at every turn? There's only one explanation for the feelings flaring between them--chemistry. Chemistry so hot, it's sizzling!

Lucky you to get this one early. I've been eagerly waiting for it for a while now. I loved the first one in this series and found the second one a tad disappointing so it's good to see that the third one is good!
