Hot Tamara book cover

For all of her 26 years, Tamara has done what is expected…until now. Tired of being the good girl, she decides the time has come to distance herself from her family, break with her unexciting boyfriend, and move from her close-knit Hispanic community to reinvent herself in Los Angeles. When Tamara bumps into her high school bad-boy crush, now working as a firefighter, she’s sure her fantasy life is welcoming her with open arms. Of course, adulting isn’t quite that simple, as she soon learns.

Light, fun, and sexy, Hot Tamara by Mary Castillo is a breezy beach read that isn’t afraid to depict the tension between first-generation Americans and their heritage yet still keeps hope alive for that happy rom-com ending.
