Review: Naked Heat by Richard Castle (Nikki Heat #2)

When New York's most vicious gossip columnist, Cassidy Towne, is found dead, Heat uncovers a gallery of high-profile suspects, all with compelling motives for killing the most feared muckraker in Manhattan. But Heat's murder investigation is complicated by her surprise reunion with superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook. In the wake of their recent breakup, Nikki would rather not deal with their raw emotional baggage.

But the handsome, wise-cracking writer's personal involvement in the case forces her to team up with Rook anyway. The residue of their unresolved romantic conflict and crackling sexual tension fills the air as Heat and Rook embark on the search for a killer among celebrities and mobsters, singers and hookers, pro athletes and shamed politicians. This new, explosive case brings on the heat in the glittery world of   secrets, cover-ups, and scandals.
My Take: 
This felt like another episode of Castle because of the relationship between Heat and Rook. Castle of course delivers again with another hit and I can't wait to see what else can happen. Like any other crime book you have your murder but what does Castle bring has me buzzing is... murder times 2. Not one murder but two happening on the same night of course when add a little Heat and Rook in the mix its bound to shake up a few lose ends. With Rook back if feels like he never left for Nikki. I loved the fact that even though I guessed most things the final thing was that I guessed wrong on who the killer was and was because I jumped to conclusions faster than I could read so in the next book Hear Rises out Sept. 20th 2011 its sure to have me reading more faster than I call it.

5/5 Stars
