If you can’t take the heat… stay away from the flame.
Katie Parks has been on her own since the age of fifteen. All she’s ever wanted is a place to call her own—a life that is wholly hers that no one can take away. She thought she finally had it, but with the strike of a single match, everything she worked so hard for is reduced to a pile of smoking ash. And she almost is too.
Now she’s being stalked by someone who’s decided it’s her time to die. The only thing standing in the path of her blazing death is sexy firefighter Holt Arkain.
Katie’s body might be safe with Holt… but her heart is another story.
As the danger heats up, sparks fly and the only thing Katie knows for sure is that her whole life is about to go up in flames.
Katie is a young librarian who loves to get lost in a book. She has lived on her own for many years and wants a place to call her own. She’s never really dated and doesn’t have any close friends. She the poster child for being a loner.
Katie has freckles, reddish hair and is very short and thin. Holt thinks she’s tiny. She thinks Holt is huge. Katie also likes to steal bacon off Holt’s plate and she has to sit on phone books when driving certain cars so she can see out of the window.
Holt was raised in Wilmington, NC by two loving parents. His Dad works in construction. When he was around sixteen years of age he volunteered for the fire department and spent a lot of time at the fire house. When he graduated high school he went into training and then was hired by the Wilmington Fire Department as a fire man.
Holt is a twenty four year old hottie. He has broad shoulders, short, dark hair and drives a candy apple red truck. He maintains that women are not allowed to drive his truck. Holt is a terrible cook and says the only thing he can cook good is cereal.
Oh, and he has big feet.

I liked this book. It kind of reminded me of another book I’ve read about a college student and having to become a stripper to make it. I think that Harlow did what she had to do to get money to finish school. If I had a good body and was able to dance on a pole and I needed the money I would do it to survive. That’s what some people have to do to make it work. This book had some charisma and I enjoyed it. The way Harlow got into stripping was funny. I think that this story could have a little more suspense though. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
