Spotlight and Giveaway - Flirting with Danger

Flirting With Danger 
by Claire Baxter

About the book:

To be together is dangerous. To stay apart is impossible.

Firefighter Jasmine Mackinnon has always just been one of the guys. So no one’s more shocked than she is to find herself kissing fellow firefighter and all-around sinfully handsome playboy Aaron Parkes after a friend’s wedding. Jasmine knows she can’t risk an emotional connection with a colleague—a potentially dangerous entanglement when fighting fires together—and nothing's more important to her than her job.

Aaron never noticed how beautiful Jasmine was until he saw her out of her firefighter duds, but there’s something about the fiery woman that tempts him. Though he knows pursuing a real relationship is out of the question for a serial dater like him, when their casual flirtation builds into something more serious, it's not just their jobs or their safety on the line. It's their hearts.

My Rating:  4 Cogs

My Review:
Gracious!  Such a sweet romance that I couldn't put down.  Jasmine and Aaron are a delightful couple and I had such a great time experiencing their gradual romance.  It's nice to read about a more masculine woman for a change!  Jasmine is really one of the guys, and although she has her girly moments, it's nice to read a book that's not overpowered by clothing choices or an abundance of fancy shoes.  Maybe it's just because I've always just been one of the guys, but it's nice to read a story that's romantic without being overly girly.

I actually started this book just thinking I'd read a quick chapter before bed.  That was a silly idea.  This book really grabbed my attention from the start with it's witty characters and cute banter.  Definitely a fun read and perfect for the summer.
