She never trusted unconditional love. He never believed he’d be worthy.
Almost-Olympian gymnast Jordan Beck has coordinated an emergency vacation getaway in Puerto Vallarta for her broken-hearted bestie. Nightly parties, exotic drinks, and sandy beaches are just what she has in mind for her and her friends. She strives for perfection in everything she does and believes she’s found it in the emerald-eyed bartender who doesn’t back down from her challenge.
Zac Durant learned early on that life is a gift and he’s determined to live his to the fullest. Scuba, surfing, tending bar by the ocean, his abuelita’s tamales. He’s content–until a Latina beauty struts across his pool patio and orders his best drink. Zac isn’t the kind to hook up with the resort guests but Jordan changes his mind.
Zac and Jordan know this sensual interlude in paradise is a vacation fling but when sparks turn to fireworks, they are tempted to believe in something real. The illusion of perfection vanishes and Jordan panics, erecting walls around her cautious heart, sabotaging their chance at happily ever after. It is up to Zac to prove that unconditional love is worth a shot at the gold.

The girls of the Sweet Escape Series are back again, and this time they’re headed to Mexico. After Liddy goes through a bad breakup, Jordan takes it upon herself to plan a getaway for them and Sam to one of the beautiful all inclusives of Mexico. Considering how well it worked for Sam when they went away (read Dry Spell), it only made sense to go on another trip when one of the girls was in need.
The resort is full of everything you could need for a girls getaway. Beaches, bars, shopping. It’s exactly what Jordan had planned to make Liddy feel better. What Jordan didn’t plan on was finding the hottest bartender on the resort to catch her eye. In comes Zac. The resort bartender who also happens to have moved to Mexico to care for his sick grandmother. Um, perfect much?
Jordan and Zac were both two amazing characters to read about. Jordan had her fair share of baggage from growing up and Zac hadn’t really found any one that piqued his interest because of bartending and caregiving. The moment they lock eyes, however, the attraction is instant.
I enjoyed the build up of the romance. While ok, yes, it was obviously insta-love because they met on her vacation and the time limit of their being together at the time was short, it was still cute. He never put any pressure on her to ditch her life and stay. They just lived in the moment and enjoyed their feelings for each other.
Mia London and Susan Sheehey know how to write some steamy scenes. There’s a scene in the garden (not a spoiler to anything I swear) where I was like “goddamn girl!” The romance was all realistic and cute. There was no point where I felt like it was too sappy. Except maybe the ending, but what romance doesn’t happy a sappy ending, let’s be real here.
My smallest issue was with one part of the plot. There was a little mystery added into the first half, which I enjoyed. However, there’s one thing that happens near the end where I feel like that really wasn’t necessary. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you read it, you’ll know exactly what part I’m talking about.
Overall, I actually liked Hot Spell better than Dry Spell. Jordan’s story was so much more interesting. The romance was cute and steamy and I enjoyed it.

Mia loves to write!
She’s been reading fiction for years and finally decided that the images and scenes floating around in her head needed to make it to paper.
She’s a huge fan of romance, highly optimistic, and wildly faithful to the HEA (happily ever after). She’s inspired by most anything around her. And her biggest obstacle is not having enough time to get it all down on paper (or my computer, as the case may be).
Her goal is create a fantasy you will enjoy with characters you could love.
She lives in Texas with her attentive, loving, super-model husband, and her perfectly behaved, brilliant children. Her produce never wilts, there are no weeds in her flowerbeds, and chocolate is her favorite food group.
And then she wakes up.
