Publisher's Summary

One desperate night, a rent-boy hot enough to scorch the motel sheets, meets a man doomed to burn for love.

Christian Ryder is a lonely man because of his strange ability: pyromancy, a curse that causes the temperature to dangerously rise whenever Christian grows excited. He has accidentally hurt lovers in the past and has sworn off personal attachments.

Tanner O'Bannon is broke and desperate. The recent loss of his father has thrown Tanner into a tailspin of debt he can't afford to pay. Working as a rent-boy allows him to pay the mortgage and his college tuition, but it's burning away his soul in the process.

Through the machinations of an escort agency these men are thrown together. Smoldering embers of desire fan the flames of love, but will it be enough to make Christian overcome his fear of love, or to save Tanner from the fire?

Nice read, but . . .

This was a sweet novella, but I'm not sure why the author choose to give one of the MC's firestarter powers. It really didn't add anything to the story; it would have been just fine without it. The narrator did a good job. Christian and Tanner are a lovely couple, but not a lot of backstory about them. I enjoyed their story, but probably just worth a sale buy, not a credit.

Unanswered questions

I liked the story but I would have liked to know a little more. At the beginning Christian was all "I can't be with anyone as they will die". But then everything is fine. Also, he blames himself for everything and I think that was kind of stupid. And the whole thing about Nigel was really stupid. Why was he going to kill Tanner? All he does is run an escort service. I could see if the person trying to kill him was someone that his father owed money to or one of his former John's. Also, Tanner was way more mature then Christian IMO. And the final thing I didn't like is that Christian keep referring to Tanner as "the kid". You don't call your lover "the kid". But other then those issues I did like the story.

A little different kind of story

The story was a good one a little too short for my taste and there were places the book could have gone and it would have been great.. The Narration was flat and without any real emotion
