Getting Hot with the Scot by Melonie Johnson #review #romance


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?


Cassie and her girlfriends are on a trip to Scotland. They are stressing because they have not seen a hot Scot in a kilt yet. I mean, it is one of their ultimate goals. Cassie accidentally strays off course on a castle tour and ends up being kissed by a real live Scotsman! Then she finds out it is all a prank. But, she just can’t keep her hands off this man!

Cassie and Logan have the HOTS for each other. But, Cassie has other ideas. She is career focused and Logan is not up to her caliber. He is a little too laid back. But, there is just something about him that draws Cassie to him. Logan is determined not to let her get away. He even takes a gig closer to her in the states. Things really heat up then!

Well, well, well, I have found a new romance author! I literally laughed out loud at some of the great one liners in this book and the attraction between Cassie and Logan is pure enchantment. With this crew in this tale, there is no telling what will happen in the next installment.

I received this novel from St. Martin’s press for a honest 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.
