ONE HOT DECEMBERA Men at Work Romance
Never mess with a woman who carries a blowtorch in her backpack. Welder and artist Veronica "Flash" Redding's playful sense of evil sometimes gets the better of her. Like when her insanely handsome, wealthy, suited-up boss gave her the most sensuously wicked night of her life…then dumped her. Yep, revenge is a dish best served hot.
Only Ian Asher isn't quite letting Flash get away quite so easily. He's not ready to forget the intensity between them. The searing heat when they touch. And the deliciously demanding control Ian wields in the bedroom. Now he has only the holidays to convince Flash that they belong together…and that even the most exquisite, broken things can be welded back together.
What I thought about One Hot December
I've been enjoying this hot little series of novellas from Tiffany Reisz. They are short on conflict and big on sweet romance between working men and women. In One Hot December, Flash is lusting after Ian Asher after spending a night together. Ian wants more too but there's one big problem. Ian is Flash's boss and that's just not going to work out for anyone.
When Ian tells Flash they can't go out, she has to deal with how she feels about him, and those feelings go deeper than just a fun romp in bed. Much deeper, and it makes working together difficult so she decides she's not going to stay at Asher Construction.
I've got to give Ian some credit here. He doesn't take that as a defeat -- he goes for what he wants, and after they get a few misunderstandings out of the way, they decide they'll be able to date now that Ian is no longer her boss.
I loved that Flash was also an artist, and that becomes somewhat of the final conflict between them when she thinks Ian bought her latest sculpture. It's easy to see the conflicts coming in this novella, but that was okay since the real story is the growing relationships between Ian and Flash.
Overall, this is a sweet little romance that doesn't take long to read. It's a feel good story of two people coming together even though on the surface they are very different. It worked for me.
