HOT READ: After the Rain by Renee Carlino

We’ve always had a soft spot for Renee Carlino’s writing, her novels are always tearjerkers and leave you with horrific hangovers and we’re pleased to let you know that After the Rain is no different!

Nate Myers is a heart surgeon, has a sparkling career and an unbeatable arrogance. Until he loses a patient. Then everything starts to spiral out of control and he is sent to his uncle’s ranch in Montana to get some space and time away from the malpractice suit that’s haunting him. It’s there that he meets Avelina, a ranch hand who’s traumatic first marriage has left her isolated and alone. 

As they both try to work out what they feel for each other, their relationship develops and becomes more complex. Nate is such an amazing man, he simply doesn’t compare, and by the time you get to the end of After the Rain you are totally hooked on him. It’s a book you get to the end of and can’t remember the last time you read something quite like it. 

If you haven’t picked up a Renee Carlino title, why not try After the Rain? It’s perfect if you’re a fan of Gail McHugh, Colleen Hoover or K.A. Tucker.

It’s out on 11th November in ebook and 20th November in paperback:

Hot Light: Inside Out series by Lisa Renee Jones


The Inside Out series by Lisa Renee Jones has been one of our favourites here at Hot Bed HQ - steamy, sexy and VERY addictive! There’s two new books coming out this year, so we thought we’d pull together a Hot Light for you all so you can check out these great books!

The series starts with If I Were You; when Sara comes across a storage locker with a woman’s diary in it. The diary entries are intense, but come to a sudden end, leaving Sara determined to find out what happened to the author. However, the more she immerses herself into the diary author’s life, the more dangerous Sara’s becomes. You have no idea who to trust or not - talk about page turner! 

As the series continues through Being Me (no.2), Revealing Us (no.3), No In Between (no. 4) and finally I Belong to You (no.5) you are totally sucked into Sara’s life, and Rebecca’s, who is the author of the diary. And if you want to find more about Rebecca’s life too, you can read Rebecca’s Lost Journals, which is HOT!

Seriously people, pick this series up because you won’t regret it!

Hot Read: Uncivilised by Sawyer Bennett

We saw everyone going crazy about Uncivilised by Sawyer Bennett and so we one-clicked our way to a copy and wow, are we glad we did! This book is hot and steamy, and it is definitely not one for public transport reading (Kate made that mistake)!

When Moira heads to the Amazon to bring back the long lost Zach Easton, she does it for her degree and her studies. So when she turns up at their camp, what she doesn’t expect to find is a rather beautiful man who’s most definitely not afraid of showing her what he’s made of! 

Once back in the US, Moira has to teach Zach how to adapt to life there, thankfully he’s a quick learner, but perhaps a little too quick. Their relationship becomes more complicated as Moira tries to maintain a professional distance, and Zach is more than eager to learn about all aspects of life in the US! 

A great read, a real page turner, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll be packing your bags and getting ready to trek to the Amazon yourself to find your own Tarzan type man! Phoar!

All or Nothing is book three in the Love By Design series by Kendall Ryan, which started with Working It and then Craving Him. However, if you haven’t read the previous books, this one is about a different set of characters so it’s perfect to pick up new.

Ellie and Braydon have always had a tense friendship, Braydon is best mates to Ben, Ellie to Emmy, so when Ben and Emmy hook up and get married, Braydon and Ellie are thrown together more and more. Having sworn off men, Ellie isn’t looking for a relationship, or in fact any male contact, Braydon, however, is very much after Ellie. Unable to resist his charms Ellie and Braydon become friends with benefits (oh, and did we mention he has a piercing? Oh, the piercing! For this alone, you need to read this book!) but Braydon’s hiding something and as Ellie’s feelings develop she can’t stand to be in the dark anymore.

The chemistry between Braydon and Ellie is amazing, and they are very funny together. We’ve wanted to hear Braydon’s story since this series started and we loved it! He’ll steal your heart!

HOT READ: Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton


We are huge fans of the lovely Alice Clayton here at Hot Bed HQ, so we couldn’t wait to get reading the next instalment in the Cocktail series: Screwdrivered.

Screwdrivered is Vivian’s story – who we met in Rusty Nailed – where she inherits a house, horses and a farmhand called Hank from her slightly odd aunt. Vivian moves across the country to decide what she wants to do with her new found property. Rundown and falling apart, it’s definitely a sight for sore eyes, filled with socks, a knight, and many, many freaky dolls. As her initial plans to renovate the place get thwarted by the local librarian, Vivian pulls out the big guns in order to fight for what she wants. The only problem is that what she wants soon shifts from the muscled Hank to the librarian Clark, which ends in a lot of confusion and a lot of sneezing!

Written in classic Alice style, it will have you hot under the collar and laughing out loud from one minute to the next. Vivian is hilarious, from her anger to her mishaps; we wish she were real as we’d love to be friends with her! And Clark is, well… hot! We can’t wait for the next instalment, Mai Tai’d Up, to come out in December.


If this has tickled your fancy, you can buy Screwdrivered here:

Just One Night by Kyra Davis

Kasie heads to Las Vegas with best friend Simone to celebrate her last weekend before her engagement to future fiancé, Dave. Always ‘steady’ Kasie prides herself on her business sense and reliability. However, one night in Vegas changes all of that when she meets Richard Dade. Businessman, professional and mysterious – instantly the connection they feel pushes all else to the side as Kasie finds herself transformed into a completely different person when she’s with him.

Things soon start to spiral out of control for the pair when business and pleasure get increasingly mixed and Kasie is forced to make the decision to commit and submit to Richard, or leave and save what is left of the person she once knew. Gripping from start to end this is a book you NEED to read.

Alice Clayton in the Hot Seat

Capital City: Sacramento, Motto: Eureka (“I have found it”), State Flower: Golden Poppy, home of some very nice wines, it’s obviously California… and that means one thing … LA! 

While we’re here in Hollywood, we got the chance to speak to the fantastic Alice Clayton. Here’s what she had to say to us.

Did you get to visit Hollywood or any studios in order to get an idea of where you wanted to set the Redhead series? Was there any really fun research involved?

I was very lucky to have lived in Los Angeles right after college, and boy did I have a blast! Los Angeles and Hollywood are two very different worlds, and I definitely enjoyed more of the LA side of life, which is wonderful. Having spent a few years there when I was in my early twenties, I drew heavily on those experiences when writing The Redhead Series, especially the backstory between Grace and her bestie Holly. As an adult, I went back to LA a few times, more so in the last few years, and I was so happy to see that much of what I loved about LA is still the same…the gorgeous neighborhoods, the lovely climate, the not knowing who you might run into while on a late night hot dog run…it’s magical.

When writing a book about stardom, there’s nowhere better to set it in than Hollywood and Grace spends a while acting on Broadway in New York, but did you ever think about setting the series anywhere else?

No, The Redhead Series was always going to be set in Los Angeles, it couldn’t work anywhere else. In many ways, the city itself is almost like a character, much like NYC was to Sex and the City. There’s a certain DNA to Los Angeles that you just can’t replicate anywhere else.

Do you think you’ll ever revisit Grace and Jack?

I actually revisit them all the time, in my head! I think about what they might be up to, how they might react to certain tabloid stories I see playing out, whether the paparazzi is still hounding them…but for now, their story is told. I have no plans, at this time, to take their story any further.

Did you ever fancy yourself as a Hollywood star and if so, what Hollywood produced film or series, would you star in and why?

You mean I’m not a Hollywood star? 

Yes Alice, you are!

Have you read the Redhead Series yet?

Hot Read: Rogue by Katy Evans

The Real series and Remington ‘Remy’ Tate had us practically drawling, so when we know that Katy Evans was writing Rogue we couldn’t wait!

Rogue is the story of Melanie and Greyson. Melanie is Brooke’s best friend, bubbly, cheerful, she’s the one that always looks on the bright side and is obsessive about making sure everything and everyone in her life is happy, even if she’s not. Greyson is the son of the man who runs the Underground boxing scene, of which Remy is a part. He’s shady, dominating and a very powerful man.

They’re not right for each other in so many ways and Greyson’s hiding more secrets than he is telling truths, but they are possibly one of the steamiest couples we’ve read in a long time! Melanie knows he’s no good for her, but she just can’t seem to say no, and to be honest we can’t blame her for that – Greyson is something else! Who would have thought someone would compete with Remy?!

We fell in love with Melanie in the previous books in the series, she was such a vocal character, so being able to read her story was the perfect addition to the Real series. It will keep you gripped right until the end - definitely a one-click buy! And we can’t wait til Ripped comes out this December – did you catch our exclusive yesterday?

If you would like to win the ENTIRE Katy Evans Real series to date (yes, that’s: Real, Remy, Mine AND Rogue) all you have to do is answer this question: 

Who would you cast to play Remy?
