Her job, her family, her love life: everything’s reached a boiling point and Caroline needs to cool off. But when she opens her apartment window for air, she finds herself staring at one very hot neighbor on the fire escape across the courtyard. He’s tall, dark, handsome—and as scantily clad as she is. With fifty feet of night separating them, it’s fun to fantasize. But when she finally meets Brendon up-close…that’s when things really heat up. A SPECIAL SOMETHINGShe’s seen him in magazines. Impossibly good-looking.Jaw-droppingly sexy. He’s the most stunning male model Leslie has ever seen. So when her wealthy brother asks what she wants for her birthday, Leslie points to the man in the ad and says, “him.” Kidding, of course. But the joke is on her when she shows up at her brother’s villa and finds him. Her fantasy man. In the flesh. Hired to keep Leslie company on an island retreat, Oliver Ames is nothing like the picture-perfect model she imagined. He’s better. Because he’s real—and he’s really falling for her…...

    Reviewer: CrystalSource: PublisherCrystal's review was first posted at Romancing the Book's blog. I choose to read Warm Hearts by Barbara Delinsky because I've loved her work for years. Warm Hearts contains two re-releases of older works.I had originally read the first story HEAT WAVE several years ago. I enjoyed reading Caroline & Brendon's story again. Granted there are a few things that are missing for this day and age. The one major thing I think you notice is the absence of cell phones. However the romance is romance and hasn't changed much since this book was wrote in the 1980′s.Caroline & Brendon don't start out with a traditional relationship. They start out day dreaming about each other through their window. Once they actually meet in person things get HOT quickly. Caroline has a lot on her plate not only is she a family therapist professionally, her family counts on her to be their personal family therapist as well. She's not sure she is ready to take on a relationship or at least a serious relationship at this point in her life.Heat Wave was a fun fantasy romance. I enjoyed the aspect of day dreaming about someone & then meeting them and finding they are even better in person then you originally thought.I had not had the pleasure of reading A SPECIAL SOMETHING before, which is the second story and also a re-release. Leslie arrives at the family villa in St. Barts to spend her birthday. What she finds when she gets there is the hunk she has been day dreaming about from a magazine ad, Oliver Ames. She never expected her brother to get her what she told him she wanted for her birthday. But here he is & now what is she going to do with them. Leslie isn't into sleeping around and really isn't sure how to handle the situation. Oliver is happy to explore the island and give Leslie some space.Sparks are not a problem with these two, knowing for sure how to handle them is. I enjoyed watching these two kind of dance around each other not knowing for sure how to handle what they were feeling. It was fun watching them get to know each other and forming a relationship they didn't intend to form. I glad Leslie & Oliver's story was included in this re-release I really enjoyed it.I really enjoyed both of these stories and I would recommend this book if you are a Barbara Delinksy fan like I am. If you don't enjoy taking a step back in time and reading a story that wrote in the late 1980′s then you probably will not enjoy this story. If you are looking to read some of Ms. Delinksy's earlier work then this is a great opportunity for you.

    Barbara Delinsky is one of my favorites, and these 2 stories do not disappoint.

    This book is misleading. It was published in 2012 but the (two) stories were written in the 80's. The problem is that they were 1980's situations, completely outdated. I bet this book would have stroke a cord with 1980's women as they were struggling to find their place in the workforce and were seeking romance romances that weren't bodice rippers, yet still wanted their heroes to just "save" the women.

    Somewhere in the book the perfection is too much of that the male protagonist was described. The book is a bit daydreamish. Somehow I enjoyed reading it, especially when someone is in search of such kind of romance to nurture a heart and soul. Enjoyed it just like eating my favorite sweet chewy junior.

    A set of 2 stories that are easy summer reads. They hold no great suspense and follow a similar pattern but they would make great poolside/beachside accompaniments. This was my first Delinsky book and while I liked it, I don't know that her work is something I will seek out. That said, if another book of hers falls into my lap as this one did, I will most certainly read it.

    Thought I would give Delinsky a try. An OK story, but I didn't really get into it. It took a long time for the hero and heroine to meet, and there was a lot of thinking about each other from afar. Also, all the other characters were quite annoying! Just wanted to day enough already.

    I always love Barbara Delinsky books, I like the way she brings you into the story and you really get to know the characters like they were friends or family. This book was good a story line that was intriguing and mysterious somewhat. Also a love story...

    Disappointing.This is actually two shorter stories, the first of which I forced myself to finish. The second I won't waste my time on.

    Two separate short stories - both were lacking a real story or any depth what so ever. Girl meets boy... they sleep together... the end.

    An enjoyable read. A nice book to read while having tea at home with the music on.

    First story was very nice, the second one was dull and blah. Read for the first one.

    run-of-the-mill romance stories are never my cup of coffee. I'm sure this book will be enjoyable for other people. It just doesnt work for me, that's all!

    I didn't finish reading this book, because it's one of those cheesy boring unrealistic romance story that only provides fantasies for women.

    Very simple, old-fashioned love story.
