Too Hot to Handle (The Catch Series Book 3) by Avery Scott. This is such a fun read. I love Avery Scott books! This is the story of Georgia ” Gigi” Sinclair who seems to have it all, First Class travel and a TV Star Fiance Chaz. It seems like the perfect life but when Chaz calls off their engagement she is determined to win him make no matter what. One night out she meets sexy firefighter Tony who is the polar opposite of her boyfriend. Tony is blue collar, down to earth, silly and street smart. He brings out the real Gigi and he makes her feel so happy. Happier than she’s been in a long time. Will she choose happiness with Tony or will she still try to get Chaz back no matter the circumstances. This is a great Contemporary Romance!
Too Hot to Handle was a fun 5 star read.
We start the story with Tony, a firefighter who isn’t looking for anything serious. His friends are starting to settle down and he’s not quite ready for that yet. When Tony goes to a reality show premiere with his friend he meets Gigi.
Gigi’s life has been flipped upside down. She snuck into the party to confront her ex fiance and had a few drinks to deal with the pressure. She ends up meeting Tony who helps her leave the party and get somewhere safe. Georgia is heartbroken with how things ended and she needs some closure.
There is something about Gigi that pulls Tony in. Can he help her get over her ex? Is he finally ready for a real relationship?
Overall I really enjoyed this book. Gigi was a great sassy character and Tony is a hot firefighter. We get some steamy moments from them as well. The secondary characters added a great element as well. The bantering between them gave me LOL moments. Avery Scott pulls you right in with her writing. I can’t wait to read more from this series and author.
This is not the first book I have read by this author and while this is “volume 3” of The Catch Series, TOO HOT TO HANDLE can absolutely be read as a stand-alone.
This was a quick and easy read and I flew threw the pages. It had everything I love in a book; Romance, light angst, obvious connection, dual POV, humor and friendship. Oh and of course a hot fireman who can cook.
Both MCs where enjoyable to read and each was quirky in their own way. The flow of this story is very smooth and while there were times I wanted to yell at the female protagonist, I appreciated her dilemma.
I will absolutely read more of this author’s work and wonder what will come next.

Oh holy hotness! Avery Scott you really have nailed this one down to every last detail! I absolutely could not put this novel down from the moment I started the very first chapter. Now Avery Scott is not a new author to me and I have devoured the other two novels in this series, although they are written well enough you can read as a standalone each of them, but this book right here made me a true mega fan!
Too Hot to Handle has it all! All the right pieces of the puzzle are present for a steamy and gripping romance. There is plenty of antagonists at play as well that keeps the reader on their toes the entire time. I adored Gigi (Georgia). She has not necessarily had the best of luck when it comes to men, and when her fiance, Chaz, calls off their engagement she is only set and determined to figure out how to win the man back. What she never anticipated was fate throwing the ever handsome firefighter Tony, into the mix. What will happen when Tony slowly starts to melt her heart? Will Gigi make the right decision and find her perfect match?
I can’t wait to find out what will come next in The Catch series. In the meantime I will be ordering some hard copies of these gorgeous novels to grace my shelves at home. I know whatever will come next from the ever talented Avery Scott will be the first on my next read!
Too Hot To Handle is the 3rd book in The Catch Series by Avery Scott. Each book can be read as a stand-alone although many of the main characters do appear in each book. I had not read the first 2 books in the series before reading this and did not feel like I missed out on any necessary information. Although now I would like to go back and read the previous 2 books as I’m intrigued as to what the stories of these 2 couples are.
In this book our main characters are hot firefighter Tony (best friend of Derron from the previous book) and Georgia (Gigi) former fiancé of Chaz, who starred in TV reality show The Catch which this series of books is centred around. Georgia is trying to win Chaz back and Tony is helping her by playing the role of her boyfriend to make Chaz jealous.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters of Georgia and Tony, although Georgia did annoy me many times. The chemistry between them is hot and Tony will do anything to win Georgia over and make her realise that he is the right man for her and not Chaz. This despite the fact the Tony has always said he would never be committed to one woman. Is Georgia the one to make Tony change his mind?
Too Hot to Handle (The Catch Series Book 3) by Avery Scott
This is book 3 in this series and even though i’ve read the previous books, this could be read as a standalone.
We get to follow Tony, the fireman (yum), and also Derron’s best friend from the previous book. He was sweet and funny but also adamant he would never end up like Derron with one woman for the rest of his life, at least not at his age just yet.
These two were great together but she needed to find her backbone first. Ugh her family, I wanted to scream at them and pull the stick out for them lol.
This is a fast read, took me a little under 2 hours but the story flew by I was so engrossed to see what happened next.
Too Hot to Handle by Avery Scott is the third book in The Catch series. This book can be read as a standalone book. It is a fun contemporary romance book with characters you will just love.
I have become familiar with Avery Scott’s work over the past year and each book has always been good. So when I saw this one I knew I had to try it. And even if I hadn’t been aware of this author the cover would have pulled me in anyway!
The characters in this book are great. They are just so good together. Completely opposite to each other their differences are what made them work so well. They complimented each other found their own rhythm.
I also enjoyed the story that went with these characters. It was easy to read but also a page turner. I found myself to be devouring the book – to the point where I read it in no time at all. This is a great book and one I would not hesitate to recommend.
This book was the perfect balance of chemistry and fun dialogue. It was a quick read for me and I found myself smiling from beginning to end. This book stands alone well but I look forward to going back and reading the other books in this series. Definitely recommend.
Too Hot to Handle (The Catch, Book 3) by Avery Scott was a fun, hot, entertaining read, that had me hooked!
My first read from this author and in this series, I didn’t know what I was getting into. But with it’s enticing cover and raving reviews, I took a chance, and I’m glad I did.
This book was hooking from the start, I love Tony’s voice and his witty sarcastic ways. Gigi, she’s something, and such a wonderful character to read about. Both played off one another perfectly and entertainingly. The overall story reads like a block busting rom-comm, and the detail and steady flow just added to the wonderfullness of this crazy good story. I love how the author took something overused and made it into something new and shiny. These type of books are predictable, so I always love it when authors can take those concepts and make them fresh, and marvelous like a new toy. That my friends is true talent, and love for the craft.
Overall this book is a must read, and if the other book in this series are just as outstanding as this one, I’m going to be binge reading real soon. To end this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

This book is my first read from Avery Scott, and after reading Too Hot to Handle, I’m gutted I haven’t read book 1 and 2, but make no mistake I will be going back and reading the other books in the series. This book was excellent from the get-go. I have absolutely loved this read, this author has created an epic story with even better characters. Georgia and Tony were just perfect in this read, everything about them made this book better. I definitely think they were the perfect match even with the ups and downs they have, the banter and the interaction between them. Georgia & Tony both went through a journey through this read and it just helped them become even more intriguing, real and relatable.
This read flows effortlessly from chapter to chapter, and was captivating from the start to the very end! One last thing – can we can point out how hot this cover is, who doesn’t like seeing a sexy male in a uniform!
This is a book I highly recommend and a story you wouldn’t want to miss out on!
