Read full description of the books Can't Stand the Heat:
The Gibbons sisters, along with their mother, are taking the men of Chesterton, Virginia by storm in Can’t Stand The Heat by Shelly Ellis. Gold digging is the name of the game and the Gibbons family is willing to play. Lauren Gibbons has tried to follow her family’s rules but has a change of heart, which causes a small rife in the family. Lauren’s last relationship with millionaire, James Sayers, turns her off of being a gold digger. The relationship got out of hand when James started using his fists to solve their problems.
Lauren gets away from him and decides she is giving up the lifestyle to have freedom and peace of mind. Lauren wants her independence back not knowing it will be harder than she expected. When Lauren meets retired football player, Cris Weaver, she believes her luck has changed because their attraction to one another cannot be ignored. Lauren believes this could be true love, but Cris and Lauren soon discover their ex’s are not going to make it easy for them.
Cris Weaver relocates to Virginia after retiring and learning that his ex-girlfriend was not who he believed her to be. Cris has dinner at a local restaurant and meets one of the chefs. Cris has an instant connection to her and tries to come up with another way to ask her out on a date since she turned him down the first time. Cris hires Lauren to prepare dinner for a party he is throwing. When Cris confesses to Lauren that the party is fake their conversation ends with them going on a date.
The two start dating and everything seems to be going well until Lauren lets her ego take over and both of their ex’s decide they won’t take no for an answer. Will Cris and Lauren survive?
Can’t Stand The Heat was an entertaining story of one woman’s desire to change her life. Lauren goes against all of her family’s rules to have a meaningful relationship. This book had a romantic feel with a hint of drama that kept me turning the pages. The characters were well-developed which delivered a strong storyline. I was shocked to find this was the author’s debut novel. The author has a wonderful writing style and I cannot wait to read the next book in the Gibbons Girl series.
