Flirting With Disaster, By Ruthie Knox

In the latest eBook original novel in Ruthie Knox’s scorching-hot Camelot series, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.

Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.

Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: How to Misbehave, Along Came Trouble, and About Last Night.

I did enjoy reading this story even though there were some parts that just seemed to go on and on. The story was quite predictable as well in certain parts of it. The characters were written well to a degree, but I was also left wanting for more from them during the course of the story.

Katie’s character, I did enjoy her because she showed a large amount of strength during the book. She knew what she wanted and she had focused herself enough to go after it. No matter what anyone else believed. For that reason, I give her mad props. Even after a failed marriage, she still pushed herself forward and made something of herself, she only wanted to improve.

Sean’s character, although there was something about him, I do think that the author went a little overboard with his stutter. The reason why I say that is because all the time that he was away from Camelot, his stutter was fine and almost non-existant, however it comes back to the point where he can’t even talk to Katie without it coming back out.

This story had a good bit of romance and suspense that kept me turning the pages on it. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next and I am completely glad that I did finish reading the story.
