Review: Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O'Reilly

Boutique owner Ashley Taylor hates flying. Especially when there's a sugar-fueled little hellion on board. But then David McLean (sexy!) sits next to her, and suddenly Ashley finds herself hoping the delay will last forever—and that David won't notice her comfy pink bunny slippers (sadly, the opposite of sexy).

David does notice Ashley, and when the flight is delayed overnight, they can't get to the airport hotel fast enough. Off with the slippers and in with the zing! Fortunately, America is filled with cities—L.A., New York, Miami—and nothing says "smoking-hot passion" like an intercontinental affair!
There's a reason Kathleen O'Reilly was recommended at Save the Contemporary -- she writes great contemporary romances!

There's so much to this book -- it's not just a romance; there's character development, actual emotion, depth, and real connections, both between Ashley and David and between the reader and the characters. 

[I should note I didn't like the next book in this non-connected series, Midnight Resolutions, as much as this one.  I can't really put my finger on why, though my gut instinct says it's Rose's fault.]

Ms. O'Reilly is on my auto-buy list.
