Luis Serrano, the unwanted love child of a hotel construction magnate, is determined to reach his father’s level of success. When Luis finds himself pitted against his half-brother for control over their ailing father’s company, sibling rivalry comes to a head. The stakes are high. The brother who best completes their portion of the Caribbean construction project will gain control over the entire company. To win, Luis hires an interior design firm. But the firm will have to perform difficult work under serious time constraints.

Melanie Merritt is used to sibling rivalry. She’s always been second best to her older sister, the “golden child” of their parents’ interior design firm. Melanie’s desire is to be an artist. She works for her family to appease them. Her newest task is to implement a complex project for Luis Serrano under an impossibly short deadline. If she fails, her family’s company may go bankrupt. But Melanie can’t keep her too-creative ideas away from her family, and the client.

Completing work on time won’t be easy. Especially when dual sibling rivalries threaten to destroy the project, and a passion hotter than the Caribbean.

Hotter than the Caribbean is the second book in the Building Love series by author Stacy Hoff. This story is a standalone romance and can be read by itself or after the first in the series, Betting on Love in Vegas. The characters from the first book are mentioned a couple of times for those that have read the first book but it is not confusing for those that have not read the first book.

In this story, Mel (Melanie) has been sent by her family to begin a very important hotel lobby design in Puerto Rico. Her older sister Denny (Denise) was supposed to head the project but had an accident that delayed her arrival. Luis was assigned by his father to oversee the lobby design while his half-brother Raul was overseeing the room designs. Both Mel and Luis have difficult parents and they formed a bond from the beginning.
This story is full of drama, suspense, angst, competition, and a slow building romance full of sexual tension.
