Some Like It Hot by Susan Andersen
Some Like it Hot is the second book in the Razor Bay series. I like this series. Their are a couple of love scenes towards the end that I skipped over. A little swearing. characters that I liked. Some humor and mostly dealings with relationships between half brothers, new couple and girl friends and the community.
Max Bradshaw is a deputy in Razor Bay. He has just started the last few months getting to know his half brother Jake as a brother instead of old habits in their youth. His mom still thinks of him as the one who took his father away.
Max does a lot of volunteer work at Cedar Village a group home for troubled boys. He is trying to get support for the fundraiser pancake breakfast.
Harper Summerville is in Razor bay for some working at the resort. She takes the opportunity to help out at the breakfast and after give him some fundraiser tips, she also volunteers to help out at the ranch. Harper is glad to have a in at Cedar Village. She is hiding her past and full name to see how Cedar Village is run and if they are a good charity for her family's charity to support.
Harper has spent her whole moving from one place to another place. Her mother and brother are glad to stop moving. Harper likes her life. But she is enjoying making friends in Razor Bay and getting close to Max. She fits into Razor bay.
Max and Jake get a surprise guest and learns some interesting information.
It is nice to see the different relationships grow and become stronger to see everyone change for the better.
Fast easy book to relax with. Makes me want to go play in the water and have a bonfire. Just have fun with friends. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I have a good guess who it will be about.
I was given this book to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley, and Harlequin.

"Wrong for each other" never felt more right...
Even a lifelong traveler like Harper Summerville has to admire the scenery in Razor Bay, Washington. There's the mountains. The evergreens. The water. And Max Bradshaw, the incredibly sexy deputy sheriff. Still, Harper's here only for the summer, working covertly for her family's foundation. And getting involved with this rugged, intense former marine would be a definite conflict of interest-professionally and personally.
Max's scarred childhood left him determined to put down roots in Razor Bay, yet one look at Harper-a woman who happily lives out of a suitcase-leaves him speechless with desire for things he's never had. He might not be big on talking, but Max's toe-curling kisses are getting the message across loud and clear. Harper belongs here, with him, because things are only beginning to heat up....
