Body Heat

The last person Melanie Tucker wants to find herself trapped with on a party boat is her nemesis, Adam Stone. As always, he's too smooth…and a bit too sexy for comfort. But when they both fall overboard—and wind up stranded together—Melanie just can't resist all the delicious body heat smoldering between them….

Caught in the Act

When a robbery goes bad, undercover cop Mick Dawson can't believe Delilah Piper (aka mystery writer Lela DeBraye) was just in the wrong place at the wrong time—and neither do the perps. The only way to protect her while he investigates what really happened is to stick with her 24/7—and try not to fall for the object of his investigation!

I didn’t know that there were two stories in this one book so it was a bit like Christmas to me when I started. 

Body Heat – I really liked the plot involving two people getting thrown overboard and stuck on an island together…especially since they already knew each other and had a rocky past.  Adam was the essential male; providing, protecting, and bothering Melanie until she exploded.  Melanie was not the character I was expecting.  If it were me, stuck on an island, I would be terrified, upset, and worried that I was going to die on the island because no one would find us.  However, Melanie was strong and willing to survive whatever was thrown her way.  Together they were perfect and the ending just made the story even more perfect.

Caught in the Act – This story was the more detailed story, taking about 75% of the book to break down the characters Mick and Delilah.  I really enjoyed the beginning but that is where the actions first started out and the attraction first started to bloom.  However, somewhere in the middle, it lulled for me, making it harder to get through the chapters.  But then came the twist, a twist that was decent and even made me wonder for 0.2 seconds if it could be true.  Working through the twist kept me going and interested in how it was all going to work out.
