Hot Mama is a fantastic, fun and very imaginative read. It's not a perfect book but none are. There were some minor issues with pacing but not enough to make me want to stop reading. I loved the character of Fiona and Ms Estep did an excellent job with characterization and showcasing Fiona's growth as well as her vulnerabilities. For those who haven't read Karma Girl about Carmen Cole, I highly recommend that one as well as this one for a great read. I can't wait for the next one in this series.
