Playing with Fire (Blackmore Inc #2) by Rebecca Hunter
Publication date: December 27th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Marianna will do anything to save her father’s company—even hire her ex to help. When old desires catch like wildfire, she won’t let it consume her…but sometimes playing with fire means getting burned.
Following their forbidden teenage romance, Marianna Ruiz never thought she’d see Simon Rodriguez again. So when she does, she feels… Shocked? Angry? Tempted? All of the above? But they can’t get involved again, no matter how much Simon entices her with his rock-solid body…and those penetrating green eyes.
Marianna doesn’t need Simon anymore, or what they shared. She just needs his elite security expertise. A scheming ex and some suspicious dealings at the family business rattle her—and when things escalate, there’s no one else to turn to. When their time together in Sydney leads to some seriously hot hookups, Marianna doesn’t hold back in seducing him into satisfying her other needs.
Although their lust for each other burns hotter every day, Marianna knows she must keep the upper hand. Expose her scheming ex, save her father’s legacy and exact a little revenge along the way. Make Simon want her like she wanted him. Then leave and never look back…
Sexy. Passionate. Bold. Discover Harlequin Dare, a new line of fun, edgy and sexually explicit romances for the fearless female.
First review of 2019, and it’s with a solid offering from the Dare imprint.
Solid is good. Solid hits all its marks. Solid delivers a decent contemporary romance.
As with the first in the series, this isn’t a story chock full of surprises, but it is another character driven story. The back and forth between these two is fun to read, and their chemistry is palpable. Overall, a decent follow up to its predecessor.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Rebecca has, over the years, called many places home, including Michigan, where she grew up, New York City, San Francisco, and, of course, Stockholm, Sweden. After their most recent move from Sweden back to the San Francisco Bay Area, she and her husband assured each other they’ll never move again.
Well, probably not.
