While enjoying her blend of orange chamomile tea on Aura Beach, California, Slow Pour coffee shop owner Eva Meyer is bored after three years of living in nearby Carmia.  In Manhattan, Eva’s twin Chris, owner of the NYEspresso coffee shop, realizes after three years in the Big Apple she is exhausted.  The sisters chat and agree to switch places for a month.

In New York persistent customer Ames Cooke has been attracted to quiet Chris.  However, eccentric Eva likes him and unlike her somewhat reticent sibling, charges head first into his life.  He knows she is wrong for him, but also is addicted to her taste.  As the days go by, Ames belief he can handle one month of lovemaking with the wrong sister turns into needing a lifetime with this right twin, but to persuade her may prove impossible.

Some Like it Hotter is a wonderful heated romance due to the delightful opposite coastal pairing of two people falling in love over tea and coffee.  The pleasant blending of the lead couple sets a high bar for Chris’ mellow meltdown.
