Taken from Goodreads: Rumor has it, that Austin, Texas just got a little hotter! Fans of Tessa Bailey and Christina Lauren will fall for this sexy story of mistaken identity, electric attraction, and irresistible romance. The first installment in Amari Nylix’s addictive new series, Austin Heat , will make you laugh and swoon, while you twist in anticipation. And of course, you’ll need a few cold showers…it gets hot in Texas!
Jake is desperate to rewrite his past with women and leave behind the media storm surrounding his off-the-field antics that cloud his potential. He’s done with the stream of models, actresses and NFL cheerleaders that have warmed his bed since he made a name for himself as starting quarterback for the University of Texas. He desperately wants to meet a normal girl in his hometown of Austin.
After moving to Austin to be the hired girlfriend to one of her long-term escort clients, Rakell finds herself wishing she could live a normal life with an average guy. Turned off by the billionaire clients she’s been serving for the last five years, she longs to get out of the business’ and build a life where she doesn’t live in the shadows of her escort persona. “Just get through this year and then you’re done Rakell,” she reminds herself.
When Jake saunters into her life, with his jet-black hair, cocky sweet bravado and piercing blue eyes, Rakell is knocked off-guard. She finds herself internally buzzing and fantasizing about getting him naked. Can she have a low-key relationship with the guy from the gym without things getting complicated? Will she finally get to sleep with someone she’s chosen? She’s trained to leave her heart out of sexual relationships, but can she do that with Jake?
Their worlds collide and the spice is off the charts. “Pretty boy” Jake Skyler has met his match with saucy-mouthed, sex driven, Rakell McCarthy. Both think they’ve fallen for an average personin Austin, Texas. Both are wrong! What happens when their physical connection explodes, and their hearts take charge? Both are concealing secrets that threaten their future together and things are about to get heated.
My Thoughts: Steamy, sexy, secret lives, friendships, and falling in
love are all words that come to mind when I think of Austin Heat. This book had me turning pages, feeling the
heat, and hoping that Jake and Rakell figure their lives out together.
I love a good sports book and Austin Heat is exactly that, even though it is off-season and no football is played. Jake is an NFL player and Rakell has no clue, but she has her own secret life. The two of them go in circles around each other as they both try to keep their other lives secret. It almost felt like lies to each other at times. They would dance around their truths, while trying to be as honest as possible.
Let’s talk about the heat between them. From their first meet at the gym the heat was off the charts. The sparks were flying just from their looks much less their first touches. I LOVED it all. They both were demanding, they both took, but even more they had so much to give to each other.
Thank you GetRedPR for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Meet Amari Nylix (taken from her website): Amazon bestseller Amari Nylix tells sordid stories revolving around tempestuous love affairs. Inspired by the secret liaisons of old west villains, heroes and the temptress women who lure those powerful men into their webs. She particularly enjoys it when the men’s armor is ripped away, exposing their soft under bellies known as their hearts. She relishes in the men’s pursuit of the soft, feminine kitten, only to find themselves shocked when she turns out to be a wanton minx.
Years of traveling the globe, studying her human subjects as they let their emotions draw them into sticky situations, taking notes along the way, led her to write stories that taunt. Amari delights in sharing her torrid stories of heart-wrenching, epic love that begin with the desires of the flesh and evolve into affairs of the heart.
Amari resides in the finest hotels the world over, enjoying the attention of the men that dare. Little do they know, her motives are to reel them in, then use them for ‘research’ purposes. Her objective is always to dissect the hidden ‘sweet’ motivations of the men she writes about that are often disguised behind their alpha bravados. She makes no apologies for her pernicious ways. Her sole goal is to give all the minxes that follow her writing a fulfilling ride on the provocative, emotional, and often humorous train they bought a ticket on.
She currently splits her time between Austin, Texas and wherever the hell else she wants. She has an affinity for old hotel bars where she can be seen enjoying a cocktail or two, while she imagines all the saucy liaisons that were sparked within those walls. Her favorites are the Driskill Hotel (Austin), Palmer House (Chicago), the Hotel Del Coronado (Coronado Island) as well as the Hotel Rosewood (London). When she’s not writing, she enjoys being served, by hot, ripped men…while doing ‘research’ for future books.
