Bliss Russo thought nothing exciting ever happened in her life. Until her building caught on fire and she had to be carried out of the flames in the arms of a gorgeous fireman. Sure, her apartment is now in shambles and she'll have to start her huge work project completely from scratch. But at least her love life is finally looking up…if only she can find her red-hot rescuer again.
Dragon shapeshifter Drake Cameron is the last of his clan, and the loneliness is starting to claw at him. He's met only one woman who might be able to stand the shock of his true nature. After all, she barely batted an eyelash when her home burned down. And feeling her curves against him was just as hot as the inferno. Just when he thinks he'll never track her down, she walks into his firehouse-with no idea what she's about to get herself into…

"There's never any doubt the heroine and hero will get their happy ending." (RT Book Reviews)
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
I really enjoyed this book! The narrator was fabulous and really made the story come alive. The way that the author wrote the characters had me laughing out loud a lot!
The story is about a woman named Bliss who is trying to win a TV show competition for cards. Her attitude comes out in everyone that she writes (Hallsnark). The male role is played by Drake. He's a fireman with an added bonus of being fire proof because he's a Dragon.
One night Bliss's building catches on fire and Drake is on the scene. After he brings her to safety, she convinces him to go back in and rescue her laptop from her apartment. He does, but gets in trouble for it. While he's on suspension, Bliss drops off one of her Hallsnark cards as a thank you and an apology.
When she takes a job as a part-time cocktail waitress and moves into the apartment above the bar to make ends meet and have a place to live. Drake comes in with flowers for her and gets another Dragon that had her eyes on him jealous. She starts setting fires all around the city so that she can drive everyone crazy and then kidnaps Bliss. Bliss gets rescued by a God and the other Dragon is pissed!
I'm not going to ruin the ending of the book. It made me laugh out loud. I loved Bliss's scene of humor.
I chose this book because I really enjoyed Darynda Jones' Charlie Davidson series and this was recommended as a read-alike. While I can see the "snarky heroine" similarity, it ends there. It seemed the tone of the writing was more juvenile; the hero was a kind of "gee willakers" I hope I get the girl kind of guy.
A good story but does go on a bit. The reader murdered the accents which was annoying but managed to make the sexy bits some what listenable. Not the best book I have ever heard and I was relieved when it finished but okay for filling in time.
