Still grieving the loss of her sister who died two years ago, the last thing Veronica "Ronnie" Locke needed was to lose her job at one of Chicago's finest restaurants and have to move back in with her parents. So when a window of opportunity opens for her - running a kitchen at a small Hawaiian hotel - she'd be crazy not to take it. The only problem is, the man running the hotel drives her crazy: Logan Shephard. It doesn't matter that he's got dark brown eyes, a tall, muscular build that's sculpted from daily surfing sessions, and a deep Australian accent that makes your toes curl. What does matter is that he's a grump, and he gets under Ronnie's skin like no one else. But the more time Ronnie spends on the island of Kauai, falling in love with the lush land and its carefree lifestyle, the closer she gets to Logan. And the closer she gets to Logan, the more she realizes she may have pegged him all wrong. Maybe it's the hot, steamy jungles or the invigorating ocean air, but soon their relationship becomes utterly intoxicating. There's just one major catch: the two of them together would incite a scandal neither Ronnie, nor her family, would ever recover from. Contains mature themes.

I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
Karina Halle is one of my favorite authors because she delivers the goods and in Heat Wave, she delivers the heat. From the first scene where Veronica approached Logan in Chicago until the very last scene in Kauai you feel the chemistry and pull between these two and know that time, distance nor family ties are going to stop this wave. I was so enthralled with these characters and the description of the scenery that I almost felt like I was there at the resort with them. I love that once Veronica and Logan gave into their feelings all that heat and chemistry turned into explosive hot sex.
Emma Wilder did an amazing job as narrator of Heat Wave. This is my first narration by her and I'm looking forward to listening to her narrations in the future.
Most definitely worth the credit. Maybe we will visit Moon Water and its staff again for another hot installment.
