Delilah Gordon has a secret.
She’s been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old.
And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it’s better this way. She’d rather pretend that they’re just friends, even though her feelings for the moody, rugged mountain man are anything but tame.
Fox Nelson has a secret too. As a wildland firefighter or “hot shot,” Fox parachutes into danger every day he’s on the job, risking all to fight wildfires that threaten ranches, forests and thousands of lives. But while Fox’s job is only for the brave, inside he feels anything but. The more he grapples with his raging demons, the more he realizes Delilah is the only one who can put out the flames.
As the two friends grow closer – and more intimate – than ever before, the more complicated their relationship becomes.
And Delilah has one more secret to reveal.
A secret that will change both their lives… forever.
Hot Shot is about a girl and a boy who grew up together. The girl loved the boy so much but never told him. She thought he hung the moon and stars but he was too deep into his own thoughts to realize what was in front of him. They were best friends and she accepted this because if she couldn’t have him any other way she didn’t want to give up the one thing they had.
Fox is the boy and Delilah is the girl. Fox is stubborn, brooding, quiet. Filled with so much hurt and anger that you have to ask yourself what happens when it all comes to a head. Delilah is strong, determined, hard-headed. She tries to turn a blind eye to what’s happening but she can’t when it’s her that is getting hurt.
I loved them both equally. For their weaknesses, stubbornness, strongness. The love, passion, and angst. For how they had to fall before they could climb. When it was hot it was hot and when it was cold it was cold.
Karina wrote another great masterpiece. I didn’t read the first two in the series to compare this one too but I’m definitely going to now. Hot Shot is funny, sad, angsty, hot and makes you wish for a family and friends that you can’t have. I’m so happy I read this book. It’ll take awhile to leave my heart.
