Sweet Heat by Zuri Day is book three in her Blue-Collar Lover series. I’m new to this author, but I really enjoyed this novel which reads as a standalone.
Marvin Carter and Naomi Carson both love to cook and have entered a cooking contest where the prize is a food truck and $50,000 to start their business. The two hit it off immediately. The relationship should be simple and straightforward, but there are surprising twists in store for our lead characters.
Sweet Heat is very well-written. The dialogue is humorous and engaging. The characters are fully relatable. The plot held my attention from start to finish. I loved the ending. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author. I rate Sweet Heat 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers of urban romance. The explicit sexual content may be offensive to some readers.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
