To save one lucky gal’s life, this Texas angel will break all the rules”

“Working the night shift at the sheriff's office has given Deputy Raine McCandless more than enough time to fantasize about the kind of man she'd like to take prisoner, so when she arrives home to find a sexy intruder waiting for her, she's pretty sure she must be dreaming.

But Dillon Taylor, with his stunning blue eyes and killer tan, is 100% real, just not 100% human. Half-man, half-angel, he'd love to answer every naughty prayer Raine has ever had. But Raine is in serious danger, and Dillon can only fulfill her every desire if he can keep her alive.”

Raine McCandless has given up almost everything to come back home to Randolph, Texas and take care of her aging Grandfather, materially, physically and emotionally.  She now spends her days trying to maintain an aging ranch and provide everything the ranch, her and her grandfather need financially and physically. 

Dillion’s boring, but safe and uncomplicated life has just gotten complicated, the minute he decided to get back on the horse so to speak and start answering prayers again, something him and his Nephilim brothers decided to start doing many years ago.  Raine McCandless however was something he never ever imagined happening to him.

Smoking Hot was a great story, with great characters.  Sock & Tilly are mischievous little buggers, all the Nephilim are mysteriously enticing, and I’m dying to know more about their fathers, the Angels.  I really identified with Raine and her loyalty to her family and her determination to take care of everything and everyone on her own.  Raine is a strong independent woman, a Deputy and has a mean punch.  Dillion is a studly Nephilim who comes to want the one thing in the universe he cannot have, Raine, forever, it’s just too dangerous, or so he tells himself.  This was a fun really quick read however; while I really liked this book the ending was very anticlimactic.  I really wanted to know what happened during the time Dillion was gone and how he made it back to Raine and so on.
