“The first in Blackwood’s Flirting With Fire series is a sexy rom-com with a big dose of funny and a dash of drama, featuring a fan favorite friend’s younger sister. With playfully light dialogue, this author adroitly tackles relationship issues of all kinds and does a good job unpeeling the layers of her main players.” —RT Book Reviews
“A hot and sexy story that will bring a smile to your face and show you that true love does exist…An amazing start to a great series.” —Harlequin Junkie

What lost the book a star for me was Erin's stubborn belief that she had to return to California. It monopolized too much of the book to me, when there were lots of things that she could have done to accept that her life hadn't gone according to her plan. The reason for this wasn't readily apparent to me, but there were hints at it, and I hope it will be fully explained later. Ignoring that part of her nature gave me a character that I found both endearing and easy to relate to. I liked Jake as a hero, and especially loved how he took to raising his daughter! Being a firefighter, I liked that he wasn't over the top macho about it, but was really just a normal everyday guy that has a dangerous job. I found that rather refreshing!
The plot was engaging and engrossing, making the book an easy read. I can't wait to read more of the series!
Erin has crushed on Jake Bennett for what feels like forever, and the ten years she was gone have done nothing but make him even better looking and more attractive. But will this even work? He doesn't want to get involved in anything serious and cause problems with his daughter and Erin is leaving as soon as she can find another job back in San Fransisco. But is Portland really that bad? Does Erin really have to run off again to not be heard from for another ten years?
Jake refuses to bring his love life around his daughter - anyone he sees knows off the bat that it's not serious and not permanent. So when Erin comes home looking sexy and delicious he knows he should stay away. One, it's his best friends little sister. Two, she isn't staying around. But the heart wants what the heart wants and his heart (and libido) want Erin!
Well-paced, well-written and humorous and sexy this was a wonderful read. Enjoy!
Jake as a character was great he tried to have self control with Erin for multiple reasons but when those both were out of the way he finally gave in and took a chance on Erin, cue the swoon.
Erin on the other hand kind of drove me crazy with being so determined to get back to California to teach and that it was so much better than Portland and so stubborn about it but I felt like there wasn’t a reason just something that made her wishy washy and just made you want to shake her then smack her on the head.
But the HEA was fabulous and those last few pages made everything worth it.
Jake - a firefighter, a single dad to an almost teenage daughter, and trying to get back in to the dating scene. He struggles with keeping her close to him and also giving her a little more freedom. Like any parent, you want your child to become their own person, but also want to protect them from the real world. Oh and did I mention that he is a firefighter!
Erin - a teacher and a runner. It is so cute to see how Jake's daughter takes to her. They get along right from the start. I just wish that Erin and Jake admitted to their true feelings for each other sooner. But that is what kept up the suspense of the book.
If you like an easy romance book, I would definitely recommend this one.
