9780060739898: Hot Tamara

Tamara Contreras will never again settle for unmemorable sex. Her long-time boyfriend may look perfect to her traditional Mexican-American parents -- something Tamara has never been -- but at twenty-six she wants more from life than marriage and motherhood. So in front of everyone, Tamara does the unthinkable: She turns down her boyfriend's unexpected marriage proposal and leaves home for L.A.

Tamara thinks she's got the single-girl-in-the-city thing down, until she runs into Will Benavides, the former high school bad boy turned firefighter. If Tamara's parents had known how Will lit up her teenage fantasies, she'd have been shipped off to the nuns for sure! Now Will wants to make those fantasies come true permanently.

When an unexpected opportunity lands in her lap and Tamara has to choose between the career and the man of her dreams, she wonders if maybe la familia was right after all . . .

About the Author:

Mary Castillo attenteded the University of Southern California, where she majored in History. During that time she went on medical missions to Mexico (where she helped deliver a baby), and interned at L.A. County Hospital. But when it was time to choose a career, Mary went back to her original love of storytelling and began writing screenplays and novels. She has worked in public relations, advertising, and as a reporter for the L.A. Times Community News. She lives in Orange County, California, with her family.

From Booklist:

At 26, Tamara is sick of doing the right thing. She expects to shock her family when she breaks up with her boyfriend, Ruben, and announces that she's moving to Los Angeles to work at an art gallery, but she doesn't expect that her mother will cut her off completely. Though Tamara distances herself from the close-knit Hispanic community in which she grew up, she ends up running into a high-school crush who's now an L.A. firefighter. Between their unmistakable chemistry, her fire-breathing boss, and the tension with her mother, there's plenty of heat in Tamara's life. Castillo goes beyond typical chick lit by examining the cultural tug-of-war between first-generation Americans and their immigrant parents. And while her strong Latina characters are bound to draw comparisons with those of The Dirty Girls Social Club (2003), even though they're not as jaded, every woman will relate to Tamara's quest to build a life of her own.
