Authentic, realistic and lovable. Served Hot has two of the most well written characters, I've come across. Maya is a pistol. She is not afraid to be who she is. Even in the most emotional moments of her life. She takes life in all of it's glory and pain and makes it her greatest achievement. I love that about her. Dex is the opposite. He knows what he wants, but has to make himself take risks and work toward his goal. They bring out the best in each other, despite the fiasco of how they began. Served Hot is my favorite Marie Harte novels. She dares to speak a truth that we all know, but fail to acknowledge. Love is not about perfection. It's about accepting the flaws they make us who we are and looking beyond them.
