About this ebook

He’s forbidden fruit and she’s a rule follower, but their connection is something to believe in. 

Father Patrick Dooley joined the clergy to fulfill his mother's dying wish. While it once gave him purpose, he not so sure it’s his calling anymore. But it’s all he’s ever known and he’s not sure what he wants to do with his life if he decides to leave the priesthood. How can he reconcile his faith with his growing desire to live a different life?

Sasha Finerghty was content to admire Patrick from afar while she dated men who were perfect on paper and wrong in real life. But with Patrick’s church in need of funding to keep a community program afloat, she’s just the girl to solve their fundraising problem. Spending more time together only fuels Sasha’s crush on him, who finds a kindred soul in her.

The more Patrick gets to know Sasha, the easier it is for him to see a future unfolding for them. But it will take a leap of faith to turn their friendship into something more, and neither of them are quite ready to make the jump.

Sasha and Patrick’s story in Hot Under His Collar, by Andie J. Christopher, is a sizzling, emotional, and wonderful tale of forbidden love. Father Patrick Dooley joined the clergy to fulfill his mother’s dying wish, not because he had a calling. For a while, it gave him a purpose, gave him control over his life, but at the moment he is not so confident about this being his life anymore. He has no clue what he wants to do if he leaves the priesthood and no idea how to resolve this conflict between his faith and a growing desire to live differently. Sasha Finerghty tried to be a good girl and behave the way her mother expected, but there was just something about Patrick that pulled her to him. Knowing she couldn’t have him, she was content to admire from afar. In the meantime, she dated men who were perfect for her on paper, but always ended up wrong in real life. When Patrick’s church is in need of funding in order to keep a community program open, she’s the perfect person to help out. As Sasha and Patrick spend time together working on saving the program, they find their feelings weren’t a fluke, and are only deepening. The electricity bouncing off of them could run the lights of the church and school. The sizzle when they are near is enough to burn anyone nearby. Neither will make a move, although Sasha does her best to stay away instead of encouraging Patrick. Yet, the universe has sent them a message. It is going to take a leap of faith before either one is ready to change up the dynamic and turn their friendship into something more. Ms. Christopher wrote a wonderful, emotional, sizzling story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with emotions, magnetic attraction, strong off-the-chart chemistry, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters giving Sasha and Patrick a chance for that happily ever after. I highly recommend Hot Under His Collar to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
