It Might Be Hot by Ariella Zoelle (4 Stars)

 Spoiler Alert... It Might Be Hot is definitely HOT!  This is a classic Gay Best Friend pining for his straight best friend who finally, after six years, decides to dip his toe in the water so to speak... It Might Be Hot was originally published as Like It’s Hot for the Red Hot Summer M/M giveaway. A new epilogue has been added for publication.

From the Author:

After another disappointing breakup, Lachlan is tired of dating all the wrong women. Even though he’s straight, his curiosity starts to get the better of him. What would it be like to be with his gay best friend, Alessandro?


I’m sick of wasting my time with women who love my money more than me. The only person who has ever cared about me and not my fortune is my flirtatious best friend, Alessandro. We always joke about me switching teams when I get bored with being straight, but lately, I’ve stopped laughing it off and started considering it as a very tempting possibility.

After breaking up with another gold-digging girlfriend, why shouldn’t I cheer myself up by having a little sexy fun with Alessandro? After all, it might be hot, right?


I’ve always had to joke about my attraction to Lachlan, because I know he’ll never take my feelings seriously when he's straight. But he shockingly asks me to show him what he’s been missing by only being with women. This is my big chance to convince him that there could be more between us than just friendship. How can I say no if it will make my dreams come true?

If he wants me to show him a good time, I’m more than happy to teach him a lesson about why I can be more to him than the women who don’t deserve him. But can I make him fall in love with me for real?

My Review:

Long on hot, short on plot, this novella dives right into the deep end of the pool and sets the scene for Lachlan's bi-awakening.  If you want back stories, character development and angst, you'll probably want to skip past this one, but if you want a steamy, sexy first time romp with some bonus morning sex and just a dash of discussion, than It Might Be Hot will be for you... Everything you need in a steamy bi-awakening in twenty four hours or less!

It Might Be Hot is the first book in the Suntastic Fun duet. This novella features a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, no angst romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and scorching-hot banter that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll adore this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed in order.
