A former Navy SEAL and current bad boy bar owner learns to trust a free spirit in this steamy novel of unexpected romance from the bestselling author of Body Shot and the Heller Brothers series.
Marco Solis knows that if he gets too close to people they disappear. His parents were deported back to Mexico when he was fourteen, his fiancée married someone else while he was in the military, and now his business partner’s spending more time with his girl than with Marco. For better or worse, that’s how Marco meets Carrie Garner. She’s legitimately model-hot. She’s also a nut—a wild, artsy, unapproachable nut. So why is Marco so interested in cracking her shell?
Although Carrie Garner is a natural in front of the camera, her dream is to make it as a photographer. Soon she’ll be heading to Spain for design school, and she’ll miss her best friend, Hayden, like crazy. She’ll even miss Hayden’s boyfriend, Beck—but she won’t miss Beck’s partner, Marco. Bossy, brooding, and annoyingly sexy, Marco really pushes her buttons, though he obviously wouldn’t mind pushing her buttons in an up-against-the-wall, hard-and-fast kind of way. The craziest part is, if Carrie lets him do that, well . . . she may never want to leave.

Marco has been interested in Carrie since the night they met at his Tequila tasting. Their friends hooked up and got engaged, but Carrie just doesn’t seem interested in him. As a matter of fact she pretty much seems to hate him, but that won’t stop Marco from figuring out why.
Carrie doesn’t want to be defined by the fact that she’s a model so when Marco tries all the typical lines on her she pretty much runs as far away from him as possible, but when he comes up with a plan for their friends she can’t help but participate.
Surprise party planning causes Marco and Carrie to spend more time together than she would have liked, but when her niece goes and does something that forces them to spend even more time together there’s only one determined outcome…they’ll slowly learn things about each other and closer and closer they will become until they can’t bear to be apart.
Hot Shot is a fun read about fierce determination. Damn, but Marco is one determined man! It’s about insecurities and pasts that continue to haunt their presents. It’s about overcoming preconceived notions and bumbling comments. It’s about love and how it sneaks up when you least expect it to. It’s another great book by Kelly Jamieson and I look forward to book three, Long Shot.
“You’ve deduced my dastardly plan to debauch you.”
“Oh wow. That was a good sentence.”
He choked. “Glad I impressed you with my words.”
“Oh, you’re impressing me with more than just words. Those hands…God.”
