My Review:


Can Brianna overcome her fear of fire and give in to love with Rafe or is his fire play too much for her to handle? Marie Tuhart is back with the final Wicked Sanctuary novel and it’s the best one of the series. The narration is high on emotion with plenty of sizzle. I connected with these characters, especially with Brianna. There is a blistering kink but it’s so well written, the story flows. Too Hot is a surprising steamy romance I couldn’t put down.

Let’s start with the narration. It’s deeply detailed and immersive. The emotions take the romantic tension to a whole new level. The narration is so detailed, it’s like I’m a part of the story. I really enjoyed diving into the world of kink and discovering fire play.

The characters are well-written with originality and complexities. I connected with both Brianna and Rafe. Brianna’s torment and emotional scars seared my heart. I appreciate how she sticks up for another sub and knows right from wrong. I adore how Rafe takes things slow with Brianna, knowing her hard limits. The characters came alive and became a part of me. The rest of the characters add depth and are interesting to interact with. I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with the other couples from this series.

If you’re like me and love opposites attract romance with kink, you’ll love Too Hot. 


My Rating: 5+ stars
