I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Playing with Fire

Playing with Fire - Gena Showalter Loved, loved, loved it! Gena Showalter is such a great writer. Steamy scenes, humor, raw emotions are all infused into this story. I loved the characters that she brings to life. Belle was so interesting. She's not your normal kickass heroine. A little flaky, she's just another girl hoping for better things to come as she works her life away.

The most endearing part of this, to me, was the relationship between Belle and her father. Such love and devotion, sacrifices are made so her father can get the care he needs and it shows. Belle's father was such a fun character when we got to see him too. You can hear the affection for each other in their voices, even if the father is an incurable flirt.

The story was very interesting and fast pace that kept me glued to the book until the very last word. Gena Showalter is just magnificent story crafter, every detail is planned so well that everything flows perfectly. While it has a serious side, there were some very humorous moments were I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Such a great book, if you haven't read it yet, you need to go get it now and sink into this fantastic story!
