Heat of Passion (California Desert Dreams #3) by Pamela Yaye #AARomance

The Blurb
Their affair is this exclusive resort's best-kept secret 

Beautiful, ambitious Robyn Henderson fought hard for her place in the sun. Now Belleza Resort's head event planner is getting ready to pull off the charity event of the season. But when a series of bizarre incidents befall the desert retreat and suspicion points at LA restaurateur Sean Parker, Robyn is convinced he's innocent. And now her boss's brother–and secret crush–is drawing her into a sizzling taboo affair. 

Sean's return to the family fold is fraught with pitfalls, especially when he's wrongly accused. His most passionate ally is his sister's best friend, a woman Sean has crushed on for years. Aching to make their undercover romance public, he fights to clear his name. As a vengeful adversary plots to destroy his family's lasting legacy, Sean must decide where his future lies. But can he also convince Robyn to trust in their love?

My Review
I absolutely  love a friends to lovers romances and Ms. Yaye certainly delivered. From one night where the romance is sparked between the two friends (who’ve been secretly crushing on each other) all the way to the drama that tears them apart and brings them together for the happily ever after.

Robyn isn’t like her two best friends who were born into money. She had to scrape her way through life in order to get to her position as a premier event planner for the hotel. The fact that things weren’t handed to her gave me an added respect for her. Although Sean possesses more than his fair share of pigheadedness, he’s also sweet and knows a good thing in Robyn when he finds it. The sneaking around to be together so that their affair stays a secret adds to the dramatics of the story.

This book can be read as a standalone and I found this series unique because the three books were written by different authors, but they were able to keep the personalities and interconnectedness of the character’s relationships consistent.

I purchased my copy from Amazon.

I give this book five out of five cake shaped chocolate bars.
