Blurb: Lights. Camera.
And a whole lotta action…
Globe-trotting fashion photographer Ivy Nelson is home to help her family out of a jam. When she donates her services to a charity calendar, the last thing she expects is hunky firefighter—and object of all her hottest fantasies—Cade Hardesty to walk through the door. Cade is ready to get naked for a good cause, and the heat Ivy feels is anything but professional.
When a sexy dare turns into a scorching kiss, they can’t help but give in to their desires. But Cade wants Ivy in his bed for more than one night. Can the hometown firefighter convince the photographer that her wanderlust should lead her into his arms for good, or will one of them run before they both get burned?
Thoughts: I can honestly say this has been one of the better Harlequin reads that I have come across in awhile. Don’t get me wrong, I love Harlequin books, and have spent many years reading and loving them. For me however, I feel like they have sort of lost something along the way. There are so many Harlequin (and Silhouette, too!) books that I have and that hold a dear place in my heart. Storylines that I remember and that I find myself frequently going back to and re-read over and over again. I haven’t really captured that feeling with the newer titles….sure it’s a decent read while I am in the moment, but they just don’t stand out in your mind like they used to. I miss that old feeling I had when picking up the older titles.
I got to recapture a glint of that special something in this book.
From the very beginning, the sparks between Cade and Ivy had me hooked, and their photo shoot just couldn’t get any hotter! But it also had that emotional hook, and just a hint of vulnerability to the characters that kept me fascinated all the way up until the end.
Definitely a keeper…J
