The Heat is On is the latest book in Katie Rose's The Boys of Summer series. This one follows Connor Jackson and Tracy Coleman. Connor has decided to move back to New Jersey for his final year as a professional baseball player and Tracy unknowingly had a large role in his decision. They were in love in college, but ended up breaking up as Connor's professional career took off. Well, now that Tracy is divorced Connor wants to win her back. What he doesn't know is Tracy has four kids that she is trying to raise with little help from her ex. This book had some seriously real parenting moments and I absolutely loved that. It really showed the struggles of dating as a single parent and the judgement that can be heaped upon that parent. There were some amusing problems that arose and had me laughing out loud, but there were also some heartwarming moments that made my heart melt. This book was a fantastic addition to the Boys of Summer series and I look forward to more from Katie Rose in the future. It gets 5 stars and will be read again.
