On such dangerous grounds, the trick will be to live long enough to keep the flame alive.
What I thought:
I was in need of a nice light romance. Not sure if this counts as light, but it definitely was what I was looking for! Normally I'm all for alpha men who pursue the women they want. In this, while we get the alpha male, we also get the alpha woman who is pursuing the man she wants. Definitely a nice shake up from the norm.
Maddie and Gabe were wonderful characters. I just adored them. I'm such a romance junkie, I loved watching Gabe try to resist and I loved watching Maddie go after what she really wants. Maddie was strong, independent and also vulnerable where it counted. Great writing!
