Hot-Blooded by Kendall Grey [SBM Review]


'Ohana is everything...
When an accident claims her mother's life, Keahilani Alana must take charge of her 'ohana(family) or risk losing what little they have. With an underage brother to care for and no education, she has few options. The door to a heavenly hellish opportunity opens when she stumbles upon a valuable secret her mother left behind on the slopes of an extinct volcano-a legacy that tempts the family with riches beyond their wildest dreams. But the secret is much bigger and more sinister than they realize. As reality unravels and exposes eerie truths about the 'ohana that should have remained deep under the mountain, Keahilani must either resist the call of her blood or risk being consumed by its darkness.
Blake Murphy is an assassin working to infiltrate a new Hawaiian cartel. His investigation reveals that Keahilani, the sexy surfing instructor he pegged as an informant, is much closer to the drug ring than he thought. Passion ignites between them in the bedroom, but their ironclad ties to opposing interests pit them against each other everywhere else.
When tensions reach the breaking point and her 'ohana is threatened, the only cure for Keahilani's hot-blooded fury is a loaded clip with a body bag chaser.
They don't call her Pele for nothing.
* HOT-BLOODED is a suspense/thriller that contains drug use and graphic sex, language, and violence. This book is unsuitable for sensitive readers and those under the age of 18.
This 1st edition paperback is the original, "Director's Cut" version of HOT-BLOODED. The 2nd edition (with new cover and slightly different content) is only available in ebook format. Those who've read the first version do not need to reread the second.

This story was so full of twists and turns and kept me on the edge of my seat. Grey's writing was dark, suspenseful, and heartbreaking. I became invested in these characters right from the start. I just loved this book and can't wait to read more from Grey.
