Reid Buchanan was always a fan favorite on the baseball diamond. But between the sheets? 
A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper’s just the first bad news. Reid’s grandmother Gloria’s broken hip means she needs constant care-but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with him. So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm.
Lori’s never wasted her time with amoebas like Reid Buchanan. So why are her well-fortified defenses starting to crumble under the force of his sexy smile-and the kindness he shows her at every turn? There’s only one explanation for the feelings flaring between them-chemistry. Chemistry so hot, it’s sizzling!
The author did a wonderful job with giving this book the title Sizzling.  The between the sheet action with Reid and Lori is not only hot and sexy, but it is touching and romantic.  
At first, the impression I got of Lori was cold and stiff. Reid came across as egotistical and selfish.  I quickly changed my mind about both of them though when they came together as a couple. They both had a knack of getting on each others nerves and not backing down from the witty remarks.  I also loved Gloria in this book.  She is one of those characters you love to hate.  As the story progresses though, Gloria changes and starts to grow on you.  
We still get to see the rest of the family in the book and I loved that! I love how Ms. Mallery made sure to include them in it.  I will say though to have some tissues handy for the last half of this book. It has a tear-jerker snuck in there and will leave you with tears in your eyes.  A great book that could be read as a stand alone book, but it is better to read the others first to get a feel for the family. 


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf

For Rereading!

    Thank you for the lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed SIZZLING. I was thrilled when HQN decided to reprint the Buchanan books. I’ve been getting lots of email from readers who are discovering the Buchanans for the first time, which is so fun!
