Playing With Fire by Alison Bliss


5 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

Sometimes you start a novel and you have a good idea of where it is going, but you aren't sure of how it is going to get there. The big point is that you know it is going to be a ride that hooks you. That is this book in a nutshell. I knew from the start where I thought it was going to end, but once I started I had no idea how we were going to get to that point. The story seems like it will be a simple chase type of love story, but you are far wrong. This novel not only has a great suspense plot to it, but it has the love story that keeps you hoping from the start to the end. I had no idea when that big BANG part of the book was going to happen. Each time I thought we were finally going to start to get answers I was wrong. It was like watching a mystery show and guessing what is going to happen as you watch, getting more amped for the big reveal. On my toes from start to end. It was well paced because each time it switched rolls from the suspense line to the love story, you were mad, but hooked even more. A great mix and a story that really leaves you in love. Cowboy and Anna are quite the set of characters. With Anna shy but smart demeanor and Cowboy's woman loving, ever suave personality things were bound to be interesting. Jump into a story that keeps your attention and really gets you in the end. I can't wait for the next book from this author. A sure winner.


Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match… Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian--old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She's just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren't easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love… Especially not with a fireman who's hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire. Cowboy can't resist the fiery little librarian, and he's determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know--if she'd let him. She'll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he's found the one fire he can't control...
