Hot Water Reviews
A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 starsThis story starts out really entertaining and promising. By chapter four, the men still do not know each other’s names. In their minds, they refer to each other as Hookup and Surfer Boy, and there is a parrot that mostly speaks in curse words and phrases that are appropriately timed. The men have on page chemistry and it is just all kinds of light-hearted fun. Along the way however, there are areas that remain fun, but then others that become less entertaining. We get glimpses of Trevor’s story early on and Clive’s story takes a little longer. His story is sad, but nothing groundbreaking.At the halfway point of the book, I did not feel that much was happening. Some of the narration is simplistic, while other areas offer a lot of detail that is not as interesting. When Trevor wants to go diving, there is a long scene of Clive assessing Trevor’s diving abilities. We get to hear the names of all the different pieces of equipment and what some are used for, and see him take a swimming test. It reads as very dry and did not advance the overall plot. There is also a local folklore story described in detail. While the story on its own is interesting and I understand the parallels and angle the author is looking to achieve, it went on too long for me and did not seem to match up with the tone of the rest of the book. When a stranger comes looking for Clive, it is set up to be a big reveal. It is clear all along who is looking for Clive and the outcome in that area offers a predictable way for Trevor to find his footing again.Read Michelle's review in its entirety here.
Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance"Hot Water by Cassie Sweet was recommended to me for a challenge. Who doesn't love a good vacation romance, right?. Clive and Trevor both have reasons to escape "reality" in a beautiful Island locale. Clive did it years ago when his family disowned him. Trevor did it begrudgingly at the insistence of his boss. They both have reasons that they think a relationship isn't in the cards. They both resist, but their chemistry eventually prevails.

This was just a fun, sexy read. Everything flowed well as far as the writing, I want to vacation there! I really liked the characters and how we found out about their pasts as the story progressed, and it felt realistic, especially how the story ended. I have to say, Jolly Rodger stole the show!I would totally love to read more about these two and what is next for them in their relationship!
Non-complicated and sweet. Just what I was in the mood for. I loved Jolly Rodger the most, though. What an appropriately inappropriate bird!
