Motorcycle racer Teo Alexiou is challenged by his grandmother to come to her birthday party with a real girlfriend. He has plenty of party girls, and he fears getting roped into marriage so he hires an actress to play the part.
The last thing Amy Suzuki wants is to be a kept woman, but her student loans are piling up and acting gigs are nonexistent. She agrees to Teo’s proposal for one summer, limited to public displays of affection.
When Teo and Amy find themselves caught in love’s grip, their new desires war with their fears. Teo wants to renegotiate, but Amy insists she’s only with him because she is paid. She would never lose her heart to a man who uses money to buy affection.
Their game playing explodes when Teo is injured on the track. Teo needs Amy, but how can she be sure of her true feelings when she’s an actress who can portray any emotion on command? Was her role in the reality show skillful acting or true love?
Roaring Hot was an addicting read! I couldn't get enough. I didn't want to put it down, even when I had to. The setting was very well described and the characters were well done.
Teo, in my opinion, overcame the biggest changes character wise within the story. Teo Alexiou was always the playboy with women hanging on him. His grandmother isn't happy about it and demands for him to bring a girlfriend to her birthday party. Teo agrees because his grandmother is very important to him, since she was the one who raised him. Teo went from having many women to pretending and being with only one. Part of the reason I felt he avoiding being in relationships was because he had abandonment issues. He's willing to do whatever it takes to please the one person who has always stand by him, his grandmother.
Amy was the typical, want-to-be Hollywood actress. Her roommate, who I felt was more using her than being a friend or supportive, helped get her a part where she would try to romance a motorcycle racer. Amy always seemed to over-analyze and be hyper aware of her own behavior. At times, I felt she acted robotic and didn't really know how to be herself or who she really was.
Teo's friend and fellow racer, Ronaldo, drove me nuts. He tried too hard to get drama involved in what was supposed to be a fake show. He seemed like he had his own plans and didn't care who he double-crossed.
Working and living in a world surrounded by acting, it's hard to see what's real and what's pretend. The pretend ending between Teo and Amy frustrated me. I had thought they felt more for each other than that, but Ronaldo played a part in how that went down. I adored the real ending, or more so beginning, for Teo and Amy.

"Love love love love Teo!!! The chemistry between Amy and Teo was off the charts! Although I kinda dislike Amy at first she redeemed herself towards the end when she (spoiler deleted) that for me is one of the sweetest thing a girl can do for someone she says she doesn't care about. =) But Teo I LOVE HIM!!! Yeah he was a douche at times, but it goes with the territory being a billionaire's son, a hot racer but he treated Amy with respect so for me all is good. =) Highly recommended.”
