If You Can’t Stand the Heat… by Joss Wood

if you cant stand the heat

“Resisting temptation has never been so impossible…

Living on the edge used to make wild-card war reporter Jack Chapman feel alive. These days he needs some time out before he burns out. So what better distraction than delectable pastry chef Ellie Evans? She’s oh-so-tempting…and sleeping right next door! Perfect for a short-term fling!

Ellie knows it would be beyond stupid to fall for a guy with ice in his veins who’s always on the move. But daredevil Jack is even more irresistible than her death-by-chocolate cake – and saying no has never been Ellie’s strong point!”

Firstly I’d like to thank the publishers for sending me this book to read and give an honest review. Modern Tempted (previously known as RIVA) is a fabulous new series from Mills & Boon, these books are fun, flirty, sexy and romantic but with a contemporary edge. I loved the sound of them all and couldn’t wait to dive in.

I quickly became absorbed by If You Can’t Stand the Heat…, Ellie’s business was under threat when suddenly the gorgeous Jack was thrown into her life and things got even more complicated from that point onwards.  Finding out about Jack’s history was fascinating, in fact the whole storyline in general interested me.

The attraction between Ellie and Jack was clear from the beginning, this side of things was well written with the tension building throughout and fizzing off the pages at me.  I loved that their emotional connection was just as strong as their sexual connection because it made the book about more than just the steamy parts.

I finished this book in less than a day, it was such a romantic read that really pulled on my heartstrings.
