This time, it's a spicy romance ready for review. I am not much used to e-book reviews, always reviewed hard copies. Let me share my opinion on this e-book.
Note: Received free copy for review from author and this is my honest opinion.
Welcome to my stop on the Review Tour of Golden Heat by Ju Ephraime. This is a spicy romance with an intriguing twist of mystery.

~About the Book~
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Native American
Andy Redfield is a hard-nose real estate developer, trying to settle his father’s estate and locate the treasure that was mentioned in his father’s will. Bernie Harp is a no-nonsense, private investigator, and who specializes in locating lost objects. When Andy hires her to find his dad’s treasure, she anticipates working alone, as was her custom. She communicates this to Andy in no uncertain terms, but Andy was having none of it. If anything, he was more determined than ever to lend his assistance. When finding the treasure becomes more than a routine job, and the presence of a suspicious intruder is discovered, tempers flare and sparks fly. While they have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye, Andy and Bernie agree on one thing: They need to capture the intruder and locate his father’s treasure.
Kicking and screaming, Bernie is forced to accept his presence on the job, even though it was distracting as hell. With them rubbing each other the wrong way, before they know it, the friction they generate turns to love’s golden heat, igniting a fire neither expected, and neither could deny. So, when Bernie unexpectedly disappears, Andy realizes she was more precious to him than all the treasures in the world, and he’d give up anything to find her—anything, including the treasure, only is he prepared for what he finds?

As mentioned in blurb, it's kind of Mills and boone's love story, where the hero Andy impresses private detective Bernie in first look itself and there is an attraction between them from the starting. Since Andy is boss to Bernie, she tries to supress the emotions as she doesnt want to have a relationship with her boss, but the desire between them is not that easy to go. So, story is about how they couldn't escape from the attraction and desire for each other.
Of course, its steamy and spicy. So, I would recommend this to teenage readers, who might enjoy. One more thing that impressed me is, it's a quick read. I liked the author's writing style, very easy to follow with medium pace. Characterization is great. Would love to read more from this author.
