ARC Review: Flames of Passion by Kayla Perrin

Nya's jerk of an ex cheated on her and is now dating the quasi starlet she suspected he was sleeping with while producing his first film. She runs into him at a charity event and has to come up with something to keep from feeling like such a loser, so she grabs the closest guy to her at the bar and lays a hot kiss on him when it looks like her ex and his new girlfriend are on their way over to her. Luckily for her it was handsome and sweet firefighter Tyler who plays along with her game. He plays so well, in fact, they have tickets to the premiere of her ex's movie at the end of the week.

What happens next is a sweet roller coaster of circumstances and falling in love. Nya and Tyler have some great chemistry. Tyler is hot, adorable, a gentleman, and sexy! Nya is a class act but suffers from some serious self esteem issues, especially after her last break up. She was so hot and cold with Tyler it gave me whiplash! However, the overall premise was cute, funny, and a page turning read. My only comment is that with a Harlequin Kimani read, I would expect a little more descriptiveness with the characters. I totally understand the need to make the characters more relate-able to a broader audience, but there was only one reference to Nya's skin color towards the end of the book. I think it's an incredible talent to write a whole book where the character's race is irrelevant, but in this case I was expecting it. In any case, I enjoyed it.
