Molly was simply repaying a favor when she agreed to go out with a friend’s brother-in-law. But what’s a girl to do when she finds herself face to face with Butch Labadee, the jerk of the century? Perhaps bite her tongue and anticipate the moment the date is over and she never has to see him again? Wrong.
Trapped in a desperate situation, Molly needs a hero. She certainly doesn’t need Butch. Does she? Was he really the hard-nose he presents himself to be? Or was it possible Butch was afraid of a little feeling called love?
Hot Pants is a short novella (approx. 63 pages) that packs a punch. Well written, the story makes one stop to reconsider that what you see is not always the reality.
Our heroine is Molly, a strong, capable woman who we can all relate to. Butch comes across as the egotistical, crass jerk that we all love to hate. Molly has agreed to go out with him as a favour to her friend. The story is not long enough to go further into the plot without spoiling it , suffice it to say things are not always as they seem.
The plot has enough twists and turns to keep me turning the pages to see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed the conflict between the characters and would recommend this story to others.
