Desperate times call for desperate measures. And Shay LaCosta is pretty desperate. She's wrecked her blissful marriage of five years by demanding she and her husband Dylan have a baby. What the hell was she thinking? She knows she was wrong and she’s ready to set things right, if only Dylan will let her. Bet he can’t shun her Booty Camp offer: delicious, white-hot sex in exchange for what’s going on inside his brain.

Dylan may be macho and stubborn, but he really does miss his wife. A little of Shay's pushing gets him past their estrangement and into her web of seduction. She seems to have an erotic week mapped out to perfection, and who is he to complain? Their marriage is meant to be, so they'll fight with each other, and they'll fight for each other.

WARNING: Racy Language, Hot Sex, Seduction

Unfortunately, Still Hot for You ended up being a DNF. I am not a big contemporary reader and I just could not get into this one. So many things felt wrong and bothered me.

For starters the blurb turned me off. You can read it yourself. 

Shay feels she has wrecked her marriage of five years by demanding a baby. She knows she was wrong. Really!! It’s not her fault. Talking to her husband about having kids is not wrong. Yes, this is something that can come between a couple. I get that and I can feel for Shay, but it just felt so wrong for her to take all the blame.

From what I gathered by the first two chapters is that Dylan is not against kids, he just wants to be finically secure. Instead of talking with his wife about the issue, well he made it worse by not talking and she feels her marriage is doomed. Not sure why Dylan has distanced himself from his wife. If they love each other as much as was indicated they should have been able to talk the issue out.

She loves her husband and does not want it to end, so what does she do to fix it, yep a Booty Camp. What’s that? A weekend filled with seduction! Dylan will talk about sex, but not the real issue. Now sex, not the issue at this point just turned me off the story.

Still Hot for You was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
