Blurb:
Dani Moore has been burned.
Still recovering emotionally from a recent assault, Dani spends her days blogging and riding around with her brother, a homicide detective. She's going through the motions with no real hope of ever getting back to "normal life." But when she meets Scott Walker, the city's new arson investigator, the heat between them is undeniable.

Scott's the nicest guy she's ever met. And it doesn't hurt that he's so attractive she can barely breathe.

Finally out of school and working his first big arson and murder investigation, Scott hasn't had time to get involved with anyone. But when he meets Dani he's convinced that the gorgeous girl who lights a fire in his heart will be his.

He's unable to resist her, even though she runs hot and cold.
He refuses to give up on her, even though his new partner is Dani's brother.

Dani may be able to put the past behind her and allow Scott to teach her how to trust again, but will the case go cold while their love ignites?

Hot and cold is an all new CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC stand-alone collaboration between Mikey Lee and Amy Briggs and is now live. Features cops, firefighters, crime and sex...you want it!.


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 "I got to see Seth Lane again" stars!!

The story starts of with us immediately being thrust into a crime scene, which I really enjoyed. There's a fire with an obvious murder victim and Scott, an arson investigator, and Clayton, a homicide detective, are called to the scene. These two have to work together to solve the crime because one scene turns into two and they've got to stop a serial killer before more bodies pile up. This made for an interesting plot because I'm such a sucker for a mystery/suspense/thriller.

However, there was a romantic theme throughout the story as well, which involved Scott and Clayton's sister, Dani. Having recently dealt with a trauma that had left her scared of her own shadow, Dani wasn't prepared for her immediate attraction to Scott. Luckily Scott was just as drawn to her and with the help of her brother, he helped her feel safe and comfortable in his company. Their relationship strangely blossomed in the midst of the murder investigation.

The reasons I didn't' rate this book higher were:
❧ the lack of details re: Dani's assault. It was mentioned and there was obviously a fallout, but the details were limited. The fact that it was brought up in the first place, I thought it would hold more of an impact.
❧ the writing wasn't completely fluid. There were POV changes within the same paragraph which made it a bit difficult to keep up with.

In the end, these issues were pretty minor and only slightly detracted from my overall enjoyment of this book. If you're looking for a fairly light and suspenseful read, give HOT AND COLD a read.
