Title: Hothead
An Irresistible Series Standalone
Author: Stella Rhys
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 3, 2018


He's the hottest player in Major League Baseball, the most notorious playboy in all of Manhattan...

And my fake fiancé for the next three months.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him.

Six-three, sexy as sin and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox "groveling" with a "mystery brunette," his agent presents us both a proposal:

Shacking up as a couple this summer.

It’s an alleged “win-win.” I need to prove to my ex that I'm fine. Drew needs to prove to his team that he's stable. Thanks to his on-field brawling and never-ending lady drama, Drew Maddox has suddenly found himself on the trade block - which means he needs a fast, easy way to show the team that he's settled down.

Hence this fiancé thing. 

Our fights are real, our kisses are fake, and thanks to the nonstop heat between us, I’m starting to mix up all my signs. But whether it’s real or fake, there’s one thing I do know:

I’m already addicted.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was really excited to learn that Evie, best friend of Aly from Dirty Deeds, was getting her own standalone book. I was more excited when the brooding Drew Maddox was going to be her love interest. You might remember he is the best friend of Aly's fiancé Emmett. I just knew it was going to be an amazing ride.

Drew can be hotheaded, he can be a jerk, but you will definitely know where you stand with him. He makes no apologies for his directness. I feel it is due to the fact that life has thrown him some major curve balls which has made him very cynical. But there is still hope for him yet, there is at least one person he can trust, his best mate Emmett. If he opened up his circle of trust just a little more, there would be an incredible woman for him too.

Evie Larsen has struggled most of her life, and it has made her a battler. Even when the odds are against her, she will strive to be positive and assertive. She takes a major tumble when her long time high school sweetheart ends their relationship. A chance meeting with Drew, and her whole world takes on a very different direction. I loved Evie's tenacity! I loved her believe in the good of people, her trust. I also loved the strong family values she held high, even if she had been pushed to her limits.

The chemistry between these two were off the charts from the very beginning. I admired how Evie held her own going up against Drew's smart mouth. The intensity of their passion was engaging and dynamic. To watch Drew become vulnerable with his heart was so sweet and swoony. It may take him a while to catch up with Evie, but he gets there in the end.
