Meet the Smokin' Hot Reads Team

I'm Krista. A 36 year old married mother of two boys. I currently work in healthcare even though my degree is in restaurant/hotel management (it's a long story). I've always been a reader. I had gotten sidetracked and brought back with the Twilight series quickly followed up 50 Shades. I am generally quiet and shy unless I know you, but if I see someone reading I often find myself asking them what they are reading. I love to offer out suggestions and add books to my TBR list and bond over fictional characters. I read just about any genre always in search of a HEA.

Hello All, I am Jamie!  I am 36 years old, married for 10 years this January and have 2 beautiful kiddos... one that loves to take selfies.. hence my picture. I live in St. Louis, MO. and am a huge baseball fan.. go CARDS!  I do currently have a full-time job in healthcare but my passion is reading and of course my kiddos.  I have to admit I did read some when I was a teenager but fell off the wagon for a while but when Harry Potter books came out I jumped right back in to the reading world.. and then we can't forget Mr. Grey who brought on a whole new meaning to reading for me.  After 50 I jumped and bought a kindle and dove right into Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and I was a goner in the Indie world after that. I have been blogging for now about 3 years and love every minute of it!  I love almost all romance genres or really any story that can grab me from the first page and not let me go till the last page... or series cause we all know the dreaded cliffy's.  I look forward to working with some amazing authors and fans! Thanks for giving our blog a chance! 

Hi y’all. I’m Maria and I love books. Writing, reading…it doesn’t matter. I love several different genres and am willing to give almost anything a chance. In 2015, I released my debut novel, Another Chance, and I’m not stopping there because I am still writing away. For reading, I love Julie Garwood, especially her FBI series, and have been reading her books since I was in high school. I wholeheartedly believe that you have to live your life, smell the roses, and never take for granted the little things. You never know when everything will change. As a Navy brat, I have moved all over, but now call Missouri home…for now. I seriously miss Texas. LOL. I love sports (especially hockey) and hanging out with friends. Life is for living!

Hi! I'm so happy to be a part of this blog! I'm a mom of three boys. I teach middle school Reading and English, so I get paid to read sometimes! I'm from a suburb of St. Louis, but on the Illinois side. I'm a huge Cardinals baseball fan. I've always been a huge reader. I was reading Stephen King novels by the time I was ten! I will read just about any genre, and frequently do. One of my main rules is that I never put anything in my classroom unless I've read it first, so I often read middle grade novels as well as the adult novels! I read quickly, but form attachments to the characters, so I love good series!
