Veronica "Flash" Redding, skilled, self-sufficient, and a top-notch welder and metal sculptor artist, is as independent as they come—but when she crosses the line and has a one-night stand with her boss, construction company vice president and COO Ian Asher, she gives notice and prepares to walk. Ian has never forgotten that night, and he's not about to let her go. He plays his trump card—a vintage iron fireplace screen that needs repair at his mountain chalet—hoping it's an offer Flash can't pass up. Sensual, smart, and hilarious, this engaging, fast-paced read touches on class and Jewish cultural issues as it delivers a heartwarming, engaging read.
VERDICT An independent heroine who's not about to let any man control her and a hero determined to convince her that they belong together singe the pages in the last of Reisz's blazing holiday trilogy; sure to make fans rejoice. Reisz (Her Naughty Holiday) lives in Lexington, KY.
