About Hot Shade:In the tropical Florida heat, a man with deadly secrets falls for a lovely, inquisitive reporter. *** When an Italian journalist's expose of his country's mafia puts him on the run for his life, he hides out in an exclusive Florida Keys enclave. But his defenses are breached by a reporter searching out the scoop of her life. Can he convince her to trade headlines for the passion growing between them … or will her investigation open the gates to peril from his past? *** After Luca Rossi lost everything to the Italian mafia, he used all his skills to write a stunning expose, and managed to put a key don on trial for his life. But now Luca must hide out on the Florida coast until justice is served in Italy. All is well, until he meets a lovely young American reporter who won't stop asking questions about who he is. Soon he's fighting the urge to hush her with a kiss … and much, much more. Skylar Shaw took a job with a small Florida paper determined to make her mark on the journalistic world. She may spend her days writing up alligator scares and human interest stories, but when she meets a handsome mystery man on the beach, she's not afraid to dig into his past, and the danger stalking him from across the seas. There's just one problem … will her efforts help Luca, or bring danger straight to him? Luca knows all too well the journalistic drive to keep digging. Can he trust his lovely Skylar to keep his secrets, or must he push her away to save both their lives?

3.75* read. I struggled to decide between a 3.5 rating or 4 so I went inbetween, hence the weird number ha. This is the first book I've read by this author and I can't wait to read more after this one.
To my knowledge this was originally published in 2015 with a different cover and I have to admit I do love this cover although I don't know what the old cover looked liked so I can't really compare them. Its eyecatching and grabs your attention straight away and for someone like me who reads loads of books I need a eyecatching front cover to grab my attention and make me pick up that book over others.
From the first chapter you are pulled into the story. Skylar is a journalist and by chance meets Luca who is actually on the run from the mafia. This leads to a lot of drama, suspence and love, my perfect mix in a book. I don't want to give anything away about the actually story but the connection between these to was hot and I was addicted till the end. The reason I didnt give a higher rating is that even though I loved the charcters and the suspence, I just struggled to completly connect with the actual story. Apart from that I loved it.
