Jim Crawford was born wealthy, but he turned his back on it to become a police officer. Add to that his being gay, and he’s definitely the black sheep of the family.
Dr. Barty Halloran grew up with lessons instead of friends and toys, and as a result, became a gifted psychologist… with only an academic understanding of people and emotions.
When Jim’s pursuit of a serial killer goes nowhere, he turns to Dr. Halloran for help, and Barty thinks he can get inside the shooter’s mind. In many ways, they’re two sides of the same coin, which both scares and intrigues him. Together, Jim and Barty make progress on the case—until the stakes shoot higher when the killer turns his attention toward Barty.
To protect Barty, Jim offers to let Barty stay with him, where he discovers the doctor has a heart to go along with his brilliant mind after all. But as they close in on their suspect, the killer becomes desperate, and he’ll do anything to elude capture—even threaten those closest to Jim.
Anymore I have started to expect all of this authors books to be great. He is one of my favorites. But Playing with Fire went beyond great and I would say even went beyond amazing. I loved this book. It had passion and I am not talking the uncontrolled lust of the animalistic sort. I am talking about the kind of passion between two people with a deep connection and innocents mixed with deep wanting. It builds and builds until they can't help themselves. The book also has suspense! It keeps a reader on the edge of their seat, never knowing what will happen next. And it has some unique characters. I loved and seriously understood and even saw a lot of myself in Barty. Jim is what any one would want for a partner, male or female. He is understanding and takes the time to figure it out. I absolutely loved them both. The writing was exceptional and highly descriptive. The characters were so well developed I felt I knew them by the end. I would highly recommend this book to all who love a suspenseful romance with a bit of spice.
