Adam, a serious cinema nerd, has no idea that he is the Hot Guy – a man so ridiculously attractive there’s a Facebook group dedicated to seducing him. Cate, a sports publicist who loves to crack a joke, is feeling down about her newly single status when her friends suggest the perfect pick-me-up: a night with the Hot Guy. But that one night leaves both Cate and Adam wanting… Is a genuine connection possible with a guy this phenomenally smokin’? Written by film critic duo Mel Campbell and Anthony Morris, and packed with movie-related humour, The Hot Guy is a funny, warm, savvy, and genuine rom-com, with characters you won’t want to kick out of bed.
I read this book on a recent holiday and really enjoyed it. It was such a light and funny read and the perfect thing for relaxing by the pool or on the beach. There were a lot of pop culture references, which I was unsure that I would get with this being from an Australian publisher and sometimes humour can be regional, but if I missed any then it didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the book. I think having seen every episode of Kath & Kim helped. Otherwise, I never would have known what a doona was. (It’s a duvet).
If you’re looking for a good beach read and like your rom-coms light and funny then I’d definitely say give this one a go.
