ARC Review! Hot On His Heels by Margo Bond Collins

He’s exactly who she’s looking for…she just doesn’t know it yet.

Sadie Quinn is at the romance readers’ convention for one reason only: to find editor Jocelyn Dellarivier. Which she could do if she didn’t keep running into the most frustrating, gorgeous man ever. To make matters worse, she just won a contest and a date with him is the prize.

Jake Blaine could kill his boss for rigging the contest, but now he’s face to face with the one woman who could expose his alter ego. He’s not about to leave, but he can’t tell Sadie he’s the editor she’s looking for. But even though he’s playing with fire, Jake can’t seem to stay away. And after a night with the raven-haired beauty, he’s not sure he wants to…
I wanted to like this. I wanted to like Jake and Sadie. Unfortunately, you do not always get what you want.

The pacing was awful, and the book was balanced as this odd juxtaposition of feeling sorry for her and then for him. At least, I think you were supposed to. I found both of them whiny, annoying, and immature. So, really, perfect for one another. he is 30, but afraid his career will impact his brother, so keeping what he does a secret...she is looking to be a tenured professor, yet she walks around like a timid mouse...because she can speak in front of people, and in class, just not one on one...which, ok...fine...but this does not translate to being unable to say "excuse me" when passing by someone.

The book was slow to get going, 50% in before they even spend any real time together, and I never bought into the attraction between the 2 of them. I probably have a lot more to say on the reasons that this did not work for me, but to be honest from 1% to 100% there was nothing that appealed or drew me in. At all.
