The last story in the Men at Work series, this one has been anticipated (by me, anyway) since September.
Tiffany Reisz writing contemporary romance is unexpected and delightful and so so good. Reisz sense of humor shines through every sentence. Even the less funny ones.
After Ian’s Dream Girl got away from him. Well, he stupidly let her go (6 months ago in Ian’s Dream Girl), Flash Redding quits on him. Imagine the shock on my face. You can’t right? Because that’s not the look on my face and hasn’t been. Flash quitting has been coming. But Ian was still a little stunned.
And then he unstunns (that’s not a word) himself and runs after her only to get burned. Not literally.
What I love about Ian is his adorableness. He is an absolute sweetheart, apparently hot as sin and very unassuming. And he couldn’t care less what others might think of his choice in women. One woman in particular.
What I love about Veronica (Flash) Redding is her strength. That woman is fire. She’s determined, sure of herself (in almost every aspect of her life) and won’t sell herself short. Not even for the man she’s in love with.
When they do get involved, all Ian has to do is crack her shell, really understand her. And all Flash has to do is give Ian what he’s always wanted – a little bit of history. His.
I adored the way their story progresses. The plot is very simple, but the emotional arc of both Ian and Flash is subtly complex. It’s beautiful to “see” two people who are already in love with one another, fall in love.
Up until reading this one I was sure Clover’s story was my favorite. But this one takes the first two. It’s an absolute delight to read. Warmed my heart.
Hard as steel…and hotter still!
Never mess with a woman who carries a blowtorch in her backpack. Welder and artist Veronica “Flash” Redding’s playful sense of evil sometimes gets the better of her. Like when her insanely handsome, wealthy, suited-up boss gave her the most sensuously wicked night of her life…then dumped her. Yep, revenge is a dish best served hot.
Only Ian Asher isn’t quite letting Flash get away quite so easily. He’s not ready to forget the intensity between them. The searing heat when they touch. And the deliciously demanding control Ian wields in the bedroom. Now he has only the holidays to convince Flash that they belong together…and that even the most exquisite, broken things can be welded back together.
