Flirting with Disaster

Flirting with Disaster is the newest book in the Camelot series from author Ruthie Knox. The publisher is Random House Loveswept and the release date was June 10, 2013. From the back cover.~

In the latest eBook original novel in RITA finalist 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.

I’ve been a huge fan of Ruthie Knox since I read her very first book. I was so excited to be approved for a review copy of her latest book from NetGalley thanks to the publisher.

I loved Flirting with Disaster so much! I’ve wanted Katie’s book since she finally told her family about her ex-husband Levi and knew she had to have a special man come into her life to make her happy. Who better than Sean Owens, a stuttering hacker who has loved Katie since high school? I totally fell for Sean from the moment he appeared on the page. I liked that while Katie noticed Sean’s stutter, she didn’t make a big deal about it. She ignored it for the most part, but didn’t have any problem asking Sean about it. The first kiss between Sean and Katie was totally smoking hot. I loved their chemistry together so much.  They worked well together, loved to argue with each other and can barely keep their hands off each other through much of the book. I’ve come to expect some pretty hot love scenes from Ruthie Knox, and she totally delivers once again. Seriously one of the hottest car sex scenes I’ve read in a really long time.

I loved how Katie and Sean both used their strengths to figure out how to track the stalker for their job together. Sean was only supposed to be in town until he finished cleaning out his mom’s house and put it on the market. When he signed on to work a job with Camelot Security, he never planned on staying in Camelot longer than the one job with Katie. Katie recognizes some of the issues Sean has with Camelot and even knowing he will leave, can’t help falling for him. Sean has loved Katie since high school, but it takes him messing up in a huge way to finally figure out what he really wants.

I have to say Ruthie Knox writes some of the most lovable heroes ever! I’ve loved each and every one of them and add each new one to my book boyfriend list (I seriously have a Ruthie Knox book boyfriend list with Nev at the top of my list). I love the Camelot series and can’t wait to visit with some of the characters again with Making It Last – a novella, which is set for release on July 15, 2013. Making It Last will give Knox’s readers a chance to reconnect with Amber and Tony from How to Misbehave.
