Sunny Shelly’s Review: Hotshot, by Robin Bielman

He believes in fate…

Hotshot, an all-new slow-burn second-chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Robin Bielman, is available now!


Here’s my plan: Crash through the ceiling of my family’s business to become the best hotelier on the West Coast. Nothing rattles me when it comes to a challenge and hard work, but when I spot my almost one-night-stand in my lobby, I’m thrown totally off my game. Alejandra is my dream girl. The one I can’t forget who got away—literally. Which might explain why I blurt out to my meddlesome, matchmaking grandmother that Alejandra is my date for her fast approaching and highly choreographed eightieth birthday party.

She’s been on pause…

Some decisions are harder than others, but agreeing to a date with Drew isn’t one of them. He’s a charming and gorgeous curveball I didn’t see coming, but the more time we spend together, the harder it is to remember to play it safe. I’ve made a promise, and even though I’m now torn, I have to honor it in order to move on from the past.

Drew feels like my future, but I’m about to put everything I want in jeopardy.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

She’s the one who got away…. Months after a quick meeting, Drew cannot believe his eyes when he sees Alejandra in his hotel restaurant. He hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind, and has sworn off casual dating until he finds the one who gives him all the feels. Alejandra’s put her romantic life on hold while her ex is working in New Zeland for a year. She agrees to some casual dates with Drew (and is kind of tricked into attending his grandmother’s 80th birthday party as his date in a few weeks). But Allie doesn’t let herself totally let go, because her ex, Matthew, is still on the back of her mind.

But Drew is determined to show her just how good they can be together in the few weeks that they have, so he jumps at the chance to move her into his hotel suite when her house is flooded. Their relationship is a sweet slow-burn, yet Robin Bielman does a great job of making the reader understand why Allie is so conflicted when she starts to fall for Drew. There’s also a nice contrast with his position of wealth versus her needing funds to save the senior center where she works that causes some trouble for Drew and Al to work though. Drew had been badly burned by a girlfriend in the past, so his insecurities come into play nicely when it comes to Alejandra’s date to meet Matthew upon his return.

The story is full of heart and humor, sweet family moments, a zany nosy grandmother and the conflict between letting go of the past and not letting it affect your future.

This is a standalone within the American Royalty series, but if you’ve read the others, there are some nice moments between Drew and his brothers Finn and Ethan, and a update on the other couples in the epilogue. And nosy Grandmother is a hoot as she plays matchmaker! I somehow missed the middle book in this series featuring Ethan and Pascale, and now I need to go track it down! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
