About the book:
Hard as steel…and hotter still!
Never mess with a woman who carries a blowtorch in her backpack. Welder and artist Veronica "Flash" Redding's playful sense of evil sometimes gets the better of her. Like when her insanely handsome, wealthy, suited-up boss gave her the most sensuously wicked night of her life…then dumped her. Yep, revenge is a dish best served hot.
Only Ian Asher isn't quite letting Flash get away quite so easily. He's not ready to forget the intensity between them. The searing heat when they touch. And the deliciously demanding control Ian wields in the bedroom. Now he has only the holidays to convince Flash that they belong together…and that even the most exquisite, broken things can be welded back together.
My Thoughts:Veronica "Flash" fell hard for her boss Ian after months of crushing led to an unparalleled night of passion. Both body and mind were engaged that night, but Ian broke it off the next day and Flash has spent the last six months trying to get over Ian.
Ian had to break things off with Flash, but he never explained why. He, too, has had a difficult time getting over Flash, but their was situation impossible. Circumstances have changed and now he hopes he can convince Flash to give them another chance.
I think One Hot December had to be the most scorchingly hot of the series. Seriously flipping hot!! Man Tiffany Reisz knows how to push my buttons, making me a hot mess! Wth that said, I think Flash was the character I related to the least in this series, though, just because I'm not the really edgy type. Not saying I didn't like her, though, because she was a very likable character, just saying that being a welder in a male dominated construction job, having tattoos of women on my biceps, and short, flaming red hair is completely out of my comfort zone. I don't like to stand out so much. Luckily for Flash, Ian, the man she fell hard for, completely dug the whole package. It's a total "opposites attract" situation with Ian the classically handsome, straight-laced bachelor coming from privilege, and Flash the blue collar girl with a poor background, and Flash frets over this a bit. Their roles were completely tossed out in the bedroom, though, Ian was very dominant, bossy and in charge, just the way Flash craved!
I love that there was no lengthy unreasonable relationship drama, instead we get Ian and Flash all hot and totally into each other! I love the wintery setting, perfect for this time of year. A chalet at the top of the mountain, surrounded by snow sounds perfect! Ian and Flash warmed themselves up in all kinds of interesting ways!
