And they thought the blowout was hot…
Oil rig blowout specialist Blair Drake is finished with men—especially after her disastrous marriage that caused her family to disinherit and cut all ties with her. But when Nick Robichaud, a handsome, roguishly charming oil well fire expert, wildcats into her life, throwing his devil-may-care attitude all over the place, the real sparks begin to fly.
Forced to work together to kill string of sabotaged oil rig explosions, Nick and Blair discover a plot to cripple the world’s oil supply. Unless they stop the doers, it’ll mean global economic catastrophe. With time running out and their lives on the line, they risk everything to prevent disaster. But nothing can stop the fire between them from burning out of control….
I had really high hopes for this book when I first read the blurb of it. I’m the type of woman that goes “Hell yeah you work in that field for men and show them women can do anything!” And while during this book, Blair did do what the men did, it just didn’t sit right for me.
While Blair seemed to understand that her life was in danger, I didn’t like how quickly she jumped to letting Nick run it while they were on the job site. Even after the job was over, it seemed even though she had stated she wouldn’t follow another man, she fell right back into that role with Nick.
Usually when it comes to sexual tension between two characters, I love that part. The anticipation that will lead to something amazing, however with this book, the tension actually started to bug me and I just wanted them to have sex and get it over with!
Now there were parts of the book that were funny, overall I don’t think that this is a book that I would re-read anytime in the future.
This book is currently on $2.99 US Dollars on Amazon.
