Hot Shot by Karina Halle Review


Hot Shot by Karina Halle

Release Date: January 9th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Hang Le


Delilah Gordon has a secret.

She’s been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old.

And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it’s better this way. She’d rather pretend that they’re just friends, even though her feelings for the moody rugged mountain man are anything but tame.

Fox Nelson has a secret too.

As a wildland firefighter or “hot shot,” Fox parachutes into danger every day he’s on the job, risking all to fight wildfires that threaten ranches, forests and thousands of lives. But while Fox’s job is only for the brave, inside he feels anything but. The more he grapples with his raging demons, the more he realizes Delilah is the only one who can put out the flames.

As the two friends grow closer – and more intimate – than ever before, the more complicated their relationship becomes.

And Delilah has one more secret to reveal.

A secret that will change both their lives…forever.


Oh my gosh did I love this story. The prologue alone killed me! This story packed so much in and I could not put it down, I read it in about 24 hours.
Delilah and Fox have such a long history of friendship and everyone around seems to see how much more there is to the two of them. Delilah is such a strong female character and I loved that about her. She was very endearing and I wanted so much for her. Fox is such a puzzle of a man. I just wanted to hug him at times, others I may have wanted to shake him. I felt so much for him and all that is going on in his head.
I absolutely loved the story and the arc of their relationship. It has so much emotion to it. I really liked how much the characters grew throughout and seeing what they conquered. I just loved the ebb and flow and how deep the story was. I highly recommend!
