A couple ideas:
The sliding caliper isn't sliding causing one side to work very hard with a lot of heat as a byproduct.
Probalby it is just the new pads being worn in. Either the pistons were not pressed in all the way, or the new pads are just a bit thicker than they should be. If the excessive heat does not stop after a few hundred miles, then go back to the brake shop.
Also, note that ceramic pads work better at higher temps and do not disipate heat as quickly as carbon metallic.
Oh, yeah. Don't spray cold water on your hot wheels and brakes. The quick temperature change can cuase warping of the rotors.
