Temperature's Rising by Karen Kelley

Very light but fun read
3 stars

Jessica Nelson comes from a family of cops and she's really had enough being one of the guys. But new cop on the block Conor Richmond sees her as all woman when he mistakes her for a prostitute and arrests her!

Their relationship gets worse when they are forced by Jessica's matchmaking police chief dad to pose as an undercover newlywed couple to catch a serial burglary gang. Jessica doesn't want to get involved with another cop but she finds that playing house with the gorgeous Conor is too much of a temptation to resist. And soon the pair must fight both the bad guys and their growing feelings for each other.

This book is essentially a very light read. Jessica and Conor are both fun characters and they are likeable too which means you do become interested in their story. They have the chemistry you would expect from a Brava novel and it is quite a hot read in places - also as you would expect. The secondary characters are colourful and fun and add a little extra to the story.

My main issue with this book was that the plot, despite being fun and interesting, was fairly light in some places and the whole book didn't really ever get into high gear. And despite being a fun, frothy read - it just seemed to be missing that essential spark that would have made it a really good story.

Having said that - this really isn't a bad book and would be perfect for an afternoon in the sun if you're looking for a light, fun, sexy read.
