Book 2 in the Turn Up the Heat series

"Scaled" by Desiree Holt and Allie Standifer is a fun story. Reed and Halli are both hard working people who don't plan on getting serious about each other. Too bad they can't seem to help themselves. This story is short, and I do feel the HEA seems rushed, but the characters are fun to get to know. I smiled through just about the entire story, except for the times I was panting over the hot sex. Every woman deserves a little bit of a man like Reed in her life. And every sexy man should get to enjoy a woman with lots of toys at her disposal!

Book Blurb for Scalded

Reed Brody is head of the geek squad for the local police. At work, he’s intense and driven; after hours, he can’t help but use that same drive in his sex life. Too bad he can’t find a woman interested in a few bondage games.

Halli Wilson is a quiet coffee shop owner who also hosts sex-toy parties on the side. Too bad she can’t find a guy man enough to tie her up and take her down.

Halli only bargained for a month. Reed’s never wanted forever. Two people determined to keep it light make the biggest mistake of all by falling in love.
