He saved Peyton Lockhart’s life when they were kids — but now she’s all grown up and he’s a seasoned FBI agent who comes to her rescue again in the new. When a woman’s dream for the future turns into a nightmare, a handsome FBI agent makes her vulnerable to more than she ever imagined in this novel. I don’t know what it is about Julie Garwood that keeps her at the top of my eagerly awaiting list. Her heroines typically are gorgeous and naïve.

Her heroes are handsome alpha males and possessive.
I would compare her writing to a recipe that includes many of the staples in a ggarwood. When the ingredients are listed individually, they seem rather bland and are typically included in numerous other recipes in the cookbook. However, when hotwhot are all mixed together there is a resulting dish that tantalizes the taste buds and has the diner coming back for seconds.
He was constantly in trouble and anytime a neighbor came to call, they automatically assumed there was trouble afoot and Finn was the cause. When Finn was 14 and their new neighbors brought their daughter Peyton to the door, Mr. MacBain assumed that Finn was once again in trouble.
They were shocked and relieved to find that Finn had just rescued 6-year-old Peyton from drowning and literally saved her life. That experience seemed to be a turning point for Finn and from then on out, he excelled in everything he did: Olympic swimmer, law school and his current occupation of FBI agent.
Peyton Lockhart is the middle child of three sisters.
After Finn MacBain saved her life when she garwoox a child, she started a ritual that she would carry on throughout the years. Each year on her birthday she would write to Finn and thank him for saving her life.
The age difference discouraged a true friendship, but that contact kept them connected over time. As an adult, Peyton is still trying to find herself in love and in her career.
REVIEW: Hotshot by Julie Garwood | The Good, The Bad and The Unread
After working in restaurants during college she discovers a love for cooking. When an opportunity to work for a cooking magazine in Minnesota arises, Peyton packs up her beat up Toyota and leaves Texas behind. Unfortunately things do not go well with her new job and in less than a month she finds herself back in Texas and the target of a would be murderer.
With Peyton in danger, she calls on Finn to come to the rescue. I really liked both Peyton and Finn.
She felt realistic, even as some of her individual characteristics did not. As did Finn, despite his almost godlike attributes. He has some baggage and while frustrating for both Peyton and the reader, the baggage is believable.
REVIEW: Hotshot by Julie Garwood
After a broken engagement, Finn has decided that marriage and children are not for him. His fear of commitment was frustrating but did not quite reach the level of wanting Peyton to hit him in the head with one of her non-stick pans.
What kept this book from DIK status for me was there was just a little too much going on. A cousin is brought in as another evil character and she may have been hotsnot one evil character too many.
Hotshot by Julie Garwood | : Books
They are coming out of the woodwork in this book. I think this made the storyline just a little too jumbled especially since the real evil character was never really in doubt. There are also just too many setting changes.
Despite these quibbles, the book works. Overall Hotshot is an enjoyable read that I would recommend to Garwood fans and is probably one that I will read again in the future.
