You can't fight what you can't see. And Gabriel Raines can't be sure just who's setting the fires in his new real-estate development. When two fires hit back-to-back, he knows it's personal, but any number of competitors or ex-employees could be the arsonist. The police suspect Angel Ramirez, a local teen who's been in trouble before. But Mattie Baker, a volunteer at the Family Abuse center, just can't believe the kid she's been working with would go back to his delinquent ways. Determined to convince Gabe that she's right, Mattie must get close to him and find out who's putting their neighborhood in jeopardy. And just as the arsonist's flames continue to burn, they find a heat developing between them. It might just turn into a full-fledged fire… if they can survive long enough.

Audio version always better then the print version because I seldom have time to just sit and read. The audio gives me freedom to do other things while I listen to a book.
I loved the background story about Sam and Tracy where Tracy finally trusts Sam not to hurt her.
I loved what Jack brought to the story....he does the story very well.
I doubt I'll bother finishing this poorly written and ridiculously poorly read story. The characterization is shallow, the cliched descriptions never stop, and the misogynistic view is annoying at best and offensive at worst. What a waste of time and a credit.
Mattie is a woman burned and is content to live her life for her job and for the families of abuse organization she volunteers for. Gabe owns a construction business and needs to find the S.O.B. setting fires to his current projects. Their paths cross when a young man Mattie has helped in the past is accused of the arson. He is quickly cleared but Gabe can't quit thinking of Mattie. As they work together to solve this investigation, they begin a very steamy relationship. As the fires continue, Mattie lets her guard down when it comes to Gabe.
I would have loved this book except I do not like the sexual promiscuity of the characters . I love romance not so much lust . The lack of morals is very off putting to me .I realize there is a whole different standard to sexual behavior now ,but, I cannot separate my ideals . I have to acknowledge this is my problem and the book was well written and and I really liked the narration. Did not have a feeling of a romantic lasting relationship between the hero and heroine.
Can't help but like Maddy and Gabe. Then there is the truly evil bad guy wreaking havoc to keep them on their toes. Once again though Kat Martin has a great story but writes in just a few too many sex scenes. Even in the romance genre there really is no need for quite that many. But this is a story well worth buying and listening too never the less.
