Keeping It Hot was a sweet, sexy, and charming friends to lovers romance! I was desperately in need of a light and fun story, and Sydney Landon delivered with this book.
Zoe Hart has been best friends with Dylan Jackson since they were kids. And Zoe has has a crush on him for as long as she can remember. But she’s been placed firmly in the friend-zone. Dylan just doesn’t see her that way… But she has a plan to change all that. With her other best friend Dana’s help, Zoe gets a bit of make-over to catch Dylan’s attention.
Dylan Jackson is the owner of a resort and a busy guy. No matter how busy he is though, he always makes time for Zoe. Zoe is one of those friends that is always there for him no matter what. She’s pretty much one of the guys and the most dependable friend he has. One night when meeting Zoe for dinner, Dylan can’t believe his eyes. What is this Zoe is wearing? Is this his best friend? When did she become so attractive? It’s safe to say that his attention has been caught.
Dylan and Zoe were both lovable characters, and Zoe’s friend Dana was a hoot! She had me laughing out loud in almost every scene she was in! I liked Dylan’s brother as well. I felt a little spark between him and Dana and hoping maybe they’ll get a book down the line.
Zoe and Dylan’s story was low on angst and drama, and had loads of laughs. It was an all around light and sweet story. A nice summer read!
