Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.
Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.
Move over Molly Harper, there is a new author going on my auto-buy list (or rather, Molly and Ruthie can now share shelf space, since its fairly open up there, I have very few auto-buy authors). She just keeps getting better and better – while I enjoyed Along Came Trouble and gave it a solid 3.5 stars, Flirting with Disaster topped it significantly – it was a 4.5 star read for me.
I loved Katie from when she was introduced in How to Misbehave (albeit briefly) and even more so as her character was developed in Along Came Trouble. I just knew that her story when it was released was going to be a firecracker and man, I wasn’t wrong. And then there was Sean – who doesn’t love the geek who overcame adversities to become the guy he is as an adult. And at the same time, I loved how he wasn’t total macho-man, but that he was still a bit unsure of himself (for reasons that I won’t disclose, because it might be considered to be a bit spoilerific).
I can guarantee (or at least I hope so) that there is at least one scene that will cause the windows to steam up and anything cold to melt into puddles 😉 Everyone seriously needs to run, not walk, to Amazon (or your chosen retailer) on June 10th when it is released and buy it – I don’t think you will be disappointed (but if you don’t, its not my fault – and my disclaimer says so… 😉 )
