Review: Her Hot Number by Talia Hunter / @IndulgenceBooks @taliasromance

Title: Her Hot Number
Author: Talia Hunter
Publisher: Entangled Indulgence
Release Date: October 20, 2014
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
ARC Received From: Entangled Publishing

It’s a travel nightmare for mathematician Caylee Reynolds. It’s bad enough that her luggage was lost en route to her conference, but when she arrives at the Australian resort and learns that she’s also lost her reservation, Caylee’s ready to break down. Then things get even worse. The resort is owned by Blake Sampson—the bad boy who once took everything from her…

Blake thought he’d left his troubled past far behind him. Then the sexy-but-proper math guru he’s never been able to forget walks into his lobby. Hoping to show Caylee he’s changed, he offers to share his suite. Except the attraction between them only grows in such close quarters—exponentially.

Even though Blake’s incredibly successful—and hot—Caylee’s not sure she can risk her heart again. Not after the way he destroyed her trust when he disappeared years ago. But if she’s wrong in her calculations, she could lose everything…

Blake and Caylee were as different as night and day when they were younger. Those differences haven't changed. Fortune has been kind to Blake, and his talent for building has made him an extremely wealthy man. The only thing he doesn't have is the love of a good woman. The only woman he felt anything for was his neighbor mathematician from years ago. One night of passion as young adults was all they had, but it was so much more than that for him.

It was more than that for Caylee as well, but she never had the chance to tell Blake because he was gone when she woke up. And he hadn't just taken her virginity and her heart when he left; he took her diary and her grandmother's wedding ring. She resolved to forget him, and was doing a fine job of it until she walked into him in the lobby of his hotel.

The attraction between them was insane. Years apart hadn't dampened the fire they'd shared in their youth; lack of trust did.

It took time for Blake and Caylee to work through their problems. It took just as long for past events to be completely revealed. The friendship they enjoyed in their youth was strengthened by the end. The love they felt was solid. A second chance between a reformed bad boy and a hot mathematician makes for one terrific romance.


Talia Hunter likes writing about smart, funny women, and the men who set their hearts on fire. Her motto is, If you aren’t laughing, you aren’t doing it right.

A formerly committed city dweller, she’s recently moved to the country. She’s put in a vege garden, learned how to make bread, and is now the proud owner of a pair of gumboots. These days she spends time Googling important questions such as how to cope with a runaway zucchini crop (make fritters), and narrowing down exactly what kind of giant hairy spider might be eyeballing her from the washing tub.
