Hot As Hell by Julie Ann Walker is a fairly short read, a perfect choice for those with limited time available for reading. Ms Walker has furnished this book with lovable characters, action, suspense and sizzle. Harper and Michael's story is a fast paced and has a bit of humor to lighten things up. I enjoyed Hot As Hell and look forward to reading more from Julie Ann Walker in the future. Hot As Hell is book 0.5 of the Deep Six Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
