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 contemporary romance from number-one New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood.
Peyton and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with conditions: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit - only then will they own it.
A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic after rightfully accusing her boss of sexual harassment. Out of work and in a bad place personally, to Peyton a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. Peyton dives into learning the resort business but is quickly derailed by an escalating chain of events that puts her life in danger. She refuses to be intimidated - until she’s nearly killed. Then she calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. Finn is more than happy to do a favor for Peyton, but he doesn’t plan on dealing with the beautiful, passionate woman she has become.
There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop Peyton and her sisters from succeeding. Among them are their contentious cousins and a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property. And it also becomes apparent that her old boss holds a serious grudge and believes in payback.
While the attraction between Peyton and Finn flames bright enough to distract them both from their dangerous situation, a happily ever after ending seems all but impossible. But the well-trained lawman never loses focus: He saved her life once; now he must do it again.

I've been reading and rereading Julie Garwood books since 1998. These days, I sit in wait for the next publication. Hot Shot was good from the first listen! The story gripping and entertaining. Strong female characters and eqully strong, sensitive male characters. If only we didn't have to wait a year between reads!
What can I say...I'm a true Garwood fan.
This was a fun summer book that I enjoyed. I liked the plot and characters in this book.

Perhaps I'm being a little liberal with the five star rating but I was so pleased to have a book that had all of Julie Garland's special touches found in her earlier works, that perhaps this rating was an obvious, blatant attempt at bribery. I laughed at several of the passages where Garland's oh so believable characters were starting to imitate Moe, Curley, and Larry in deeds and in repartee! I was equally incensed at the villains, leeches of the first order, and wished I could hurl some rotten cabbage and tomatoes at them. But after clever deduction and quick actions, our heros came thru and the bad guys were going to get all they deserved, especially the womanizer! A stay in the big house was going to teach him how it felt to be powerless against unwanted physical relations, a true "shoes on the other foot"! I enjoyed this book tremendously, confirming that my favorite author still had that punch!

I've never ready anything by this author. Although I have heard great things about her. This book was a great intro to her style of writing. highly recommended.
Great characters and the story keeps you guessing with different twists. I was shocked by some of the cluelessness of a few characters. I really enjoyed this book.
