Kendall Grey's Hot Blooded ~ Review ~ JMAC

When an accident claims her mother’s life, Keahilani Alana must take charge of her family or risk losing what little they have. With an underage brother to care for and no education, she has few options. The door to a heavenly hellish opportunity opens when she stumbles upon a valuable secret her mother left behind on the slopes of an extinct volcano—a legacy that tempts the family with riches beyond their wildest dreams. But the secret is much bigger and more sinister than they realize. As reality unravels and exposes eerie truths about the siblings that should have remained deep under the mountain, Keahilani must either resist the call of her blood or risk being consumed by its darkness.

Blake Murphy is an assassin working to infiltrate a new Hawaiian cartel. His investigation reveals that Keahilani, the sexy surfing instructor he pegged as an informant, is much closer to the drug ring than he thought. Passion ignites between them in the bedroom, but their ironclad ties to opposing interests pit them against each other everywhere else.

When tensions reach the breaking point and her family is threatened, the only cure for Keahilani’s hot-blooded fury is a loaded clip with a body bag chaser.

* HOT-BLOODED is a suspense/thriller that contains drug use and graphic sex, language, and violence. The story is intended to entertain, not to condone or glorify illegal or immoral activities. This book is unsuitable for sensitive readers and those under the age of 18

I became obsessed with the wonderful Kendall after reading her Hard Rock Harlots series, so I was super excited to read Hot Blooded.  I must say, Kendall did not disappoint!
Honestly I knew before reading Hot Blooded I was going to love this book.  I mean number one it's Kendall FREAKING Grey, her writing is just genius, and she once again proved it with this book.
Keahilani, the badass heroine, has to be one of my favorite characters ever. 
She has NO shame in her game.  Keahilani is strong, scary, and doesn't take shit from anyone. The story takes place on the island of Hawaii.  After a tragic accident left Keahilani and her siblings alone, to fend for themselves, Keahilani does what it takes to keep her family going.
Keahilani, and her brothers will do anything and everything they needs to do for their ohana.  Legal or illegal.  It doesn't matter.  They will do anything. 
After a discovery of what her mother has kept hidden, Keahilani figures out she has a HUGE opportunity to make a lot of money, and her journey of doing just that, begins. 
I don't want to give anything away in this story, and I feel like just the smallest detail could do just that.  Kendal finds a way to create a story that consumes you until the very end.  The meaning of family was very strong in this book, and I loved that.  I feel like when it comes to family, I would also do whatever by any means necessary for my family. 
What Keahlani hopes can be an easy job, becomes something much more complex.  Especially when you throw a sexy Blake Murphy in the picture, things get even crazier.  At first what starts as a sex fantasy brought to life, turns into a freaking nightmare.  Blake is their on a job, to find someone, and take care of them.  Keahlani is just having fun, being that Blake is the perfect person that can handle her more kinky fetishes, with.   They both get involved with eachother, getting sidetracked from the job they should be doing.  They're both more connected than they know. 
Kendall takes you on a crazy journey of family, love, life and death.  Hot Blooded is the story of going to the ends of the world for your ohana.  No questions asked, you do what you have to do, and you don't complain about it. 
Hot Blooded is an amazing book! A well deserved 5 stars!  Kendall once again you did an amazing job.  I can't wait to see what book two brings!
