Tara Janzen is giving us a new series for all those that like their men tough as nails on the outside but a big teddy bear on the inside. Just donít let them here you say that. This series starts off with us getting a glimpse of all the members of this elite Special Defense Forces (SDF for short). We are introduced to Quinn, Christian, Dylan, Kid, Creed, and Skeeter Bang the only female in this all male office and home at 738 Steele Street.

In walks Regan from Quinnís past. Well, walks in is too tame a word as she has brought the bad guys to Quinn and Kidís hideout in Cisco. She just wants to talk to Quinn to find out if he knows where he grandfather is. It seems her grandfather is missing and the only clue she has it a note on the calendar about Quinn.

Regan is way in over her head. She has no idea what trouble is lurking around the corner. But Quinn does and he is hoping to put a stop to whoever is after Regan to find her grandfather. This also means that someone has to be the watchdog over Nikki, Reganís younger sister. Well, none other than Kid gets this assignment and it is funny to hear Regan say that Kidís needs to watch himself around her.

Kid is a former sniper for the military. He can take care of himself but letís just say that Nikki has an affect on him and so does the subject matter of her paintings.

Can Regan who has had a crush on Quinn ever since he worked on her grandfatherís historical dig finally have the All American Hero? What about Quinn will he finally be able to live out the fantasies he has had of her?

Crazy Hot is one fast paced, exciting story that will have you turning the pages to find out what happens next. Whether it is someone on the trail of Quinn and Regan or Kid and Nikki. We canít forget that the attraction between these coupleís leaps off the pages, the sexual attraction sizzles; there is no amount of water that will put a damper on them.

Ms. Janzen has given us a story that is filled with danger that seems to be around every corner. There seems to be a mystery around 738 Steele Street and the guys that work there as well as just what has happened to Regan and Nikkiís grandfather. The story has several twist and turns that leaves you wondering just how they do it all and are still alive. Even though we only learn a little bit about the secondary characters, they are ones you would like to have around you if something happens. We do learn a little bit about these secondary characters and almost every one of them we will see again in a later story.

If you havenít read Crazy Hot yet, what are you waiting? The story will leave you with wanting to learn more about 738 Steele Street and the other members of SDF.
