Sunny Shelly’s Review: Getting Hot With The Scot, by Melonie Johnson



The first in a new series, a journalist focused on her career and a sexy Scottish comedian turn a one night stand into forever.

Cassie Crow leaves for vacation with two goals: fill up her empty charm bracelet and have a one night stand. For once, she wants to have fun instead of obsessively checking her work email. And kissing a man in a castle who’s dressed as a Scottish Highlander is the perfect solution.

Except when that man turns out to be Logan Reid, the host of a popular sketch show—and Cassie has just been roped into his latest prank. She wants nothing to do with his antics, but that was a really great kiss, and one night together couldn’t hurt.

It’s clear that one night isn’t enough and when Logan’s show brings him closer to Cassie, they decide to give dating a try. Can the woman who’s focused solely on her career and the man who refuses to take life seriously make it work?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

What an absolutely charming book! Melonie Johnson is a new-to-me author, but I’ll definitely be checking out more in this Sometimes In Love series.

Cassie and Logan are both dedicated to their careers and have no time for relationships, but their personalities were quite opposite. But opposites attract, and these two brought out the best in one another. He’s the last thing she was looking for on a European vacation with her friends, and he had no idea that she was all that he’d ever wanted until she was right in front of him.

These characters are charmingly endearing, and their one-night stand (turned more!) was full of sass, sweet and swoony moments and frisky fun. The greater group of friends are just as charming, which is good when the rest of the series will be based around them!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


A Star Wars junkie and Shakespeare groupie who quotes both Yoda and the Bard with equal aplomb, award-winning author Melonie Johnson—aka #thewritinglush—is a two-time RWA Golden Heart® finalist who loves dark coffee, cheap wine, and expensive beer. And margaritas. And mimosas. And mules. Basically any cocktail that starts with the letter m. She met her future husband in that most romantic of places—the mall—when they were teenagers working in stores across the hall from each other. They went on to live happily ever after in the suburbs of Chicago with two redhead daughters, a dog that’s more like a small horse, and a trio of hermit crabs. After earning her Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago, Melonie taught high school English and Theatre in the northern Chicago suburbs for several years. Now she writes smart and funny contemporary romance and moonlights as an audiobook narrator under the pseudonym, Evelyn Eibhlin.
