Can't Stand the Heat

  • Over three generations, the Gibbons women of Chesterton, Virginia, have built their reputation as a family of shameless--but refined--gold diggers. They even have a strict set of rules by which they operate. But the rebellious, youngest Gibbons is about to break them all...

    Lauren Gibbons is committing the ultimate family betrayal: abandoning the tradition of seducing men for money. Nothing is worth the abuse she's endured from her sugar daddy. Now a sous chef, Lauren is hoping to break from the past for good. And when she meets hot former NFL player Crisanto Weaver, she even lets herself imagine a future. But the small-town rumor mill--and her own sisters--aren't ready for a new Lauren. Between her conniving relatives, her vengeful ex, a mountain of debt, and a whole lot of haters, can she escape her old life, and create something new?

    "Can't Stand the Heat marks the debut of an immensely talented writer whose characters leap from the pages and refuse to let me go. Using humor, deliciously vivid descriptions, and relatable scenarios, author Shelly Ellis has hit a home run. Readers will undoubtedly enjoy this one." 

    --Cydney Rax, author of My Daughter's Boyfriend
