3. Elaine Antonio
Self-proclaimed manang Elaine Antonio is restrained, cautious, and used to taking care of people. Gorgeous Brazilian-Japanese model Luis Inoue is laid-back, impulsive, and totally out of her league. But when they’re thrown together at the same island resort one summer weekend, things unexpectedly heat up.
Elaine knows that once the vacation is over, they’ll be returning to their two very different worlds. Is this destined to be just a summer fling? Or will she finally learn how to take a risk for love?
Hot Like This follows the story of Elaine and Luis, characters who were introduced in the holiday special All I Want for Christmas. This short summer romance is co-written by Chris Mariano, Chrissie Peria and Miles Tan to thank their readers for supporting them. It was written in a round robin fashion, with the writers taking over the various characters and letting them interact, for a fun and sexy summer romp. It is currently available as an Amazon Kindle exclusive.
