Let the Sparks Fly Bliss Russo thought nothing exciting ever happened in her life. Until her building caught on fire and she had to be carried out of the flames in the arms of a gorgeous fireman. Sure, her apartment is now in shambles and she’ll have to start her huge work project completely from scratch. But at least her love life is finally looking up…if only she can find her red-hot rescuer again. Dragon shapeshifter Drake Cameron is the last of his clan, and the loneliness is starting to claw at him. He’s met only one woman who might be able to stand the shock of his true nature. After all, she barely batted an eyelash when her home burned down. And feeling her curves against him was just as hot as the inferno. Just when he thinks he’ll never track her down, she walks into his firehouse—with no idea what she’s about to get herself into…

She stokes his fire and he loves it!

Ashlyn Chase is a guaranteed good read for me. Why? The writing flows, the characters are interesting and I know I’ll be in for a good time while I’m reading. This book was no different. Once I started, I didn’t want to put it down. I had to know what would happen next.

Dragon shifters aren’t new. The dragon being a fire fighter? Now you’re on to something. Drake is a hot guy. Literally. Being a dragon shifter has to be a lonely existence. I mean, he can set things on fire and that’s not always a good thing. I could relate to his loneliness and his need to find that one person to make him whole. I liked reading about him going through the journey. The thread of acceptance running through this book is particularly strong and I thought about it and the characters long after I finished the book.

There were a couple things I had a hard time with. There are a lot of characters. Sometimes it was hard to keep things straight and I had to reread more than a few times. Another thing that sort of bugged me was the different genres at play in the book. I love Ms Chase’s sense of snarky humor. That worked well, but there were moments were this book felt like a couple different pieces placed together. Sometimes the juxtaposition of fantasy and contemporary worked. Other times, I lost interest.

Still, this was a good book and totally full of heat. I recommend Ms Chase’s work. Check it out!
