Over all the story was good. True to form with the Madame Eve format.
Loved the interaction with his guy friend. Loved the elevator sexy scene.
Later though, the goofy nerd gets all serious and determined to seduce his mystery date on his one night stand courtesy of Madame Eve set up by his friend Jack. Cat, however, is not so pleased that her sister set her up for a one night stand and is not pleased that it is her boss Leo who still doesn't realize she is his familiar and he is a warlock. Sparks fly, literally, whenever Leo becomes excited at seeing Cat's curves or touching her hand. Their chemistry is amazing and the sexual tension builds slowly over the evening as they first get to know each other and later as they decide how the evening should end. Both characters are somewhat opposites as Cat is a very strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and tends to be impulsive. Leo is methodical and particular. As they talk though it is obvious they have more in common than it seemed and much to share. They both have an opportunity to grow a little.
Having read Tara Quan’s Operation Owl, I expected Flirting with Fire to be a semi-serious romantic novel. That’s pretty much just what I got with this second book of hers that I’ve read but for some reason I just liked it much more than Operation Owl.
Maybe it was the fact that both characters are much better fleshed out, even though the book seems shorter. Leonardo is a kind of sloppy bachelor who can’t see things under his own nose, but you get the feeling that his heart’s in the right place. Why else would he care for the cat his crazy grandmother left him? Cat, on the other hand, is a much more vivid character in my mind. She’s stuck in the form of (you guessed it) a cat because she was a familiar to Leonardo’s grandmother and now Leonardo, who doesn’t believe in magic, is in control of her contract without knowing it. So she’s stuck as a cat when she goes out of the house on every night but one: Halloween.
Since this is kind of a romance, you can pretty much guess how the story goes from there when both Leonardo and Cat go out on the same night. Still, Tara Quan does a good job of building up a reasonable amount of suspense by ratcheting up the tension within both characters as well as creating some tension between the two when they meet. And of course, when the romance part finally seems to happen, there’s still the question of Cat’s contract and whether Leonardo is willing to open up his mind and believe her.
The best thing about this book is that it’s emotionally satisfying. There’s no Insta-Love, but rather an instant connection of some sort that in some situations obviously can lead to a one-night stand. So that’s more than believable given the circumstances both characters are in at the time. And by the end, you get the feeling that not only has the main conflict been resolved satisfactorily but that you can guess at what happens next to some degree. It makes for a much better ending than the usual drive off into the sunset with these sorts of things.
So if you’re looking for a good book that’s also fairly light reading with plenty of romance, Flirting With Fire would be a great place to start.
I give this book 4/5 stars.
