Review: Getting Hotter (Out of Uniform #8) by Elle Kennedy

Posted on

A good bad boy is hard to find.

Seth Masterson has been lusting over Miranda Breslin since the moment he saw her on a Vegas stage. Now that he’s been asked to watch out for her as she opens a dance studio in San Diego, he’s all over it, figuring it’s his chance to get her in his bed. Except the stubborn single mom seems determined to deny their crazy-sizzling sexual chemistry. In typical SEAL fashion, Seth makes it his personal mission to prove her wrong.

Miranda got over her attraction to bad boys about the time one of them knocked her up at the age of eighteen. Seth’s mocking gray eyes and military-buff bod, though, are pure and utter temptation. And when a flooded apartment forces her and her twins to move in with him, she can no longer resist the urge to set off some serious fireworks between the sheets.

But give him her heart? No, thank you. Any involvement with Seth will be strictly physical—and temporary. So when Seth decides permanent is what he wants, Miranda must steel her defenses before she does something incredibly foolish…like fall in love.

Warning: This book contains a bad boy SEAL who knows what he wants and will go to any lengths to get it. Expect some graphic language, hot sex, seduction, hot sex, dirty talk, hot sex, a little man-on-man action, hot sex. Oh, and hot sex.

My Review

Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I loved the synopsis of this story and couldn’t wait to dive in. Getting Hotter hit the ground running and had me totally intrigued by Miranda. I loved her dedication to her work and how her children were her number one priority. I thought that Miranda and Seth had some really good chemistry and I loved the tension that sparked between them. However, I did have some major issues with Seth. Seth, while he was sexy and determined, I didn’t really love the way he went about pursuing Miranda. He had the worst attitude when it came to children, and I couldn’t understand why he would bother chasing after a woman that has kids. Like I get that he is hot for her, but if he’s not interested in all that comes along with the woman, he should move on to someone who is more his speed. I should note that after the halfway point, Seth does try to redeem himself. He does try to improve himself and show Miranda that there is more to him than meets the eye; that he wants more from her than just in her pants…

Getting Hotter is the 8th book in the Out of Uniform Series and can totally be read as a stand-alone novel. This book was a quick and easy read for me and is definitely one that you can read in just one sitting. Getting Hotter is one of those reads that is going to be a hit for some and a miss for others. I enjoyed the story-line and really liked Miranda. Seth does try to redeem himself in the end, however, I was just left wanting more.
