Playing with Fire by Kat Black

What They Say:

The steamy story of Annabel Frost and Aidan Flynn continues … Can you handle the heat?

Before Aidan Flynn had swept into her life with the destructive force of a wildfire, Annabel Frost had thought she'd had all she needed from her life. A successful career, financial independence, emotional restraint. Things that were safe, secure, steady. Everything her childhood hadn't been.

Aidan represented none of that. Reckless and risky he'd been the red hot flame that melted the icy layers of her long-frozen heart. Having run from him once, Annabel should have learnt to leave trouble well enough alone.

But now Aidan is back, turning up the heat. And regardless of the danger of getting herself badly burned, Annabel can't seem to resist the temptation to play with this particular fire.

What I Say:

I would like to thank the publisher Avon for approving me to read this book on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

After leaving Aidan at the end of Melting Ms Frost, Annabel's life went back to some kind of normality but far from getting on with her life, she finds herself missing Aiden.  Annabel is also confused as why he just let her walk away when Aiden returns Annabel must make the biggest decision of her life.

This is a great follow-up to Melting Ms Frost but for me I found the in some ways it lacked the intensity steaminess of the first book.  I can understand why Kat choose to 'fade to black' rather than repeating the same sex scenes over and over again.  Having said that the story moves along at a great pace.  With this book, Kat decides to go more into Aiden and Annabel's feelings and we also get to find more about both Aiden and Annabel.

Again familiar characters from the first book are back, in the form of Annabel's mum,  Annabel's mum even has a love interest that Annabel disapproves of but this time she has found a keeper.  We also get to see Balthazar Hunt and Damien Harcourt.  Kat introduces Aiden's Irish relatives and I can see there be future books around his family.  A great follow up to Aiden and Annabel's story.  Aiden is still as sexy as hell.

About The Author

Kat Black is the author of prize-winning, pulse-pounding, adult fiction. Born and raised in Australia, Kat was labelled a daydreamer from a young age – but never quite understood why that was considered to be a bad thing.

At eighteen she donned her backpack in typical Aussie fashion and set out to see the world. She got as far as London (her very first port of call) before running into a six-foot-one, solid British obstacle that stopped her in her tracks. Years later she’s still in England, penning steamy tales to help counteract the effects of the infamous weather, and enjoying plenty of adventures with her husband and children.
