Under a burning sun more than a thousand miles from home, Lynn Stevens is trying to get her life back on track and leave memories of that one fateful night behind. She meets Dan, a young man with strangely erratic behavior and smoldering brown eyes, who is on an involuntary vacation with his parents. In him, she sees her own struggle reflected every time she is starting to get too close.
Dan doesn’t like being touched. But when he sets out to uncover Lynn’s secret, it means he’ll have to tell her some secrets of his own.
‘Heat’ is Lis Lucassen’s New Adult debut novel. This book puts her on the map in the Netherlands as the first-ever NA author from her own country.
(Blurb from Goodreads)
I am honored for being able to read the first New Adult book published in Holland. How amazing is that?! And Ms. Lucassen did an amazing job on her debut New Adult book as well.
Heat is the perfect beach read. It’s about two young adults at a resort; Dan is a guest and Lynn works there. Both have their secrets, and both of their secrets are pretty dark. Lynn is working there to get away from her past, and in a way, so is Dan and his family.
This is a contemporary romance and a bit on the dark side. But still, it was a fast and unique read. So if you’re looking for a new summer read, check out Heat.
My Rating: 4 stars
***I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.***
