I’m not sure exactly why I love Arianna Hart’s books, but I do. My latest read by her is “Spitfire”; the story of a blue-collar tomboy who falls for a geek. Even though the plot wasn’t anything new, and I figured out the ‘bad guys’ early on…I still had a good time reading about this couple.
Shana is the pint sized daughter of a widowed cop. She’s spent her life ‘proving’ to her Dad and everybody else, that size doesn’t necessarily matter. Since she’s too short to be a cop, she decides to go into private security and eventually open up her own detective agency. When she saves a ‘suit’ from an apparent mugging on the way to a job interview, she has no idea that that one act will change her life–and her goals–forever.
Now there were times I wanted to ream Shana a new one! She really put her man Royce through the hoops. I got awfully irritated with that HUGE chip on her shoulder, but when she finally got it I felt all melty…and isn’t that the sign of a good read? The hero is a hot geek (and brains ARE sexy), the sex is smoking, and the heroine is a strong female. How can you pass this up?
