Getting Hot with the Scot by Melonie Johnson

This is my first Melonie Johnson book. Most Scottish hero books I see are Highlander style, and I wanted a contemporary, so I grabbed myself a copy of this and here we are.

Needless to say, when I started this and Cassie is in the castle with her friends, and she stumbles upon Logan as a time traveling highlander, I balked. But then it all cleared up.

Cassie, as a journalist on the rise, is apprehensive of anything that might jeopardize her career. So when Logan asks her to sign a waiver on his little stunt intended for national broadcasting, she naturally refuses.

I do love Logan’s tenacity and determination. I think the way to his feelings for Cassie led the story was a great trick on Johnson‘s part (if that was what she intended, and if not… lucky author.) I feel that when the emotional aspect of a story is what drives a plot forward it all feels more natural.

The minor characters, Cassie’s friends and Theo, Logan’s best friend, were all fantastic in keeping things light and fun.

Not to mention Logan’s family, and that Scottish brogue. Love it!

This story is well written, fun and easy read. The Scot and his English mate both make it all more swoony. Always a good thing in my book.

And here’s what it’s about


Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love? 


I read, review, flail and swoon.
