While the book was good, It is not one that will stick in my mind I would recommend to suspense readers though Oh Also, I must mention the title and cover are gorgeous and adequately fit the story line and characters This book is a mixture of Suspense and contemporary with strong elements of romance The book is told in third person points of view, alternating the focus on several different characters The novel focused predominately on Jessie and Alec with small sections focusing on Annie, Rabago villain , Brett father s partner , and even the father in the first chapter I thought this book worked nice in 3rd person, since there was still that focus on Alec and Jessie and their emotions I did not feel as connected to them as if the novel had been told in 1st person, but as a suspense novel, sometimes it is better being able to view the story from the outside while the detectives are chasing leads and introducinginfo to the case It makes the story a bitfast paced than if it were in 1st person That being said, the book was not particularly fast paced, which made sense since detectives do not solve cases and find missing person s in one day as they do on crime shows That made that aspect a littlebelievable I like that we come into the book with the two main characters having a small working knowledge of each other even if their prospective opinions are not the most flattering We delved into Jessie and got to know the inner workings of her heart and what made her tick after all, this is her story We sort of get a smaller crash course on Alec whose life was basically pleasant in comparison He is a woman lover and he unintentionally aggravates Jessie due to her unwanted attraction to him She just has a problem with relationships in general and has the lowest opinion of him He has always just known her as the hot, hard as steel FBI agent who spent her career slowly taking down Rabago s empire piece by piece But then Rabago finally gets tired of her messing with his plans, he decides to make her life hell He kidnaps her sister, setting off a cat and mouse game where he is always two steps ahead of Jessie With Jessie forced to partner up with the man who gets under he skin and eager to hunt the man who took her only family, her life starts falling apart around her Due to the new intimacy of partnership and the race against time to find Annie, the two are forced to spendtime with each other and deal with whatever the hell it is simmering between them Jessie can t afford the distraction, but at the same time craves it While parts of each other s lives are opened up to each other and they learnabout the other, the reader follows along and builds a deeper understanding of the characters and what drives them as the characters figure it out themselves Although Jessie is a muchdefined character who we know every aspect about, Alec was a great character in his own right and I enjoyed watching his feelings for Jessie change throughout the book I do feel like I wanted a bitof the novel focused on Annie, but I guess I can be content with the little I did get Rabago was a bit of a sporadic villain and I don t understand why he waited years to retaliate against Jesse when she has been a thorn in his side since she graduated the police academy I swear to you, at one point the guy was sitting in a chair, plotting her destruction while stroking a cat I kid you not I had to laugh at the villain stroking the cat cliche I don t think it was meant for comic relief, since the book has a serious note, but I don t care As crazy as he sounded in the book and as master mind like as he was throughout the novel, you would think he wouldn t have made the stupid mistakes he made in the end I can t stand villains who talk and talk giving the victim time to retaliate If you are going to be evil, damn it, be evil lol I know, that is messed up, but come on Did scar hesitate before he threw Mufasa into the stampede of wildebeest NO He did not That is all Aside from the wayward villain I don t really understand what he did Was he a drug lord I. don t get it A Don Some kind of Crime mogul All I got was that he has henchmen and he is rich and he is the bad guy and that he strokes cats. moving on Maybe I just missed that sentence Dang it, Snyder, pay better attention next time and the fact that the book held my attention for short periods of time, but did not keep me glued to it or engrossed in the story too much like some romantic suspense I have read, it was a pretty good read with a well defined lead character

    Review of Playing With Fire by Cassandra Bella I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I was drawn in to the story from the start Chapters One through Four set the stage, providing the back story for the heroine s motivation I actually liked this technique as it helped you to feel the pain and relate to Jessie s determination to avenge her father s killer, rather than thrusting the reader into present day with only a passing reference to Jessie s motivation The remai Review of Playing With Fire by Cassandra Bella I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I was drawn in to the story from the start Chapters One through Four set the stage, providing the back story for the heroine s motivation I actually liked this technique as it helped you to feel the pain and relate to Jessie s determination to avenge her father s killer, rather than thrusting the reader into present day with only a passing reference to Jessie s motivation The remainder of the story focused on Jessie s quest, following in her father s footsteps as a federal agent, to bring down the entire criminal enterprise of the man who murdered her father in the line of duty This becomes very personal, as the killer is determined to take down Jessie as well, along with anyone that is important to her When the villain kidnaps Jessie s sister, she is partnered with her FBI rival, the confident and good looking Alec, who both frustrates and thrills Jessie There is definitely a love hate relationship between these two and plenty of sexual tension, as they work together to find Jessie s sister and take down a killer Jessie is a complex character, thrust into a lot of responsibility at a young age, raising her sister, caring for her mother who is very emotionally needy, and establishing her career as a federal agent This leaves her very little time for relationships and explains her confusion over her feelings for Alec Overall, this was an entertaining romantic suspense read with a satisfying ending after some twists and turns and scary moments I give it a solid four stars The only constructive comment I have is that in the real world, Jessie would not be permitted to actively work the case involving her sister, but it made for an exciting story

    Playing With Fire by Cassandra BellaReview done by Cassandra BrookerI give this 3 stars.I received an ARC for an honest review.It started off kind of slow for me and it was confusing I didn t know where this was going but I kept reading We meet Alec who is cocky and gets shot He thinks he is dyeing but I guess fate wants to intervene.He meets Jessie and she is not happy about her partner He is good looking but that is all he has going for him He wants Jessie and Jessie wants her sister back Playing With Fire by Cassandra BellaReview done by Cassandra BrookerI give this 3 stars.I received an ARC for an honest review.It started off kind of slow for me and it was confusing I didn t know where this was going but I kept reading We meet Alec who is cocky and gets shot He thinks he is dyeing but I guess fate wants to intervene.He meets Jessie and she is not happy about her partner He is good looking but that is all he has going for him He wants Jessie and Jessie wants her sister back home safe.I liked that the book went from Denver to New Orleans and the French quarter which I love Jessie got thrown into a lot of reasonability after her father was murdered but I don t think she would take it back for a second She is taking care of her sister and making money I like that Jessie is doing what she needs to help her sister out.The book moved slow for me and I did not finish this book, it just didn t grab me and pull me in I think it was just lacking something and that is why it didn t pull me in

    I m usually hesitant to read romance novels because they can get too cheesy describing sex I m always reminded of the guidance counselor in 10 Things I Hate about You and her repeated references to his turgid member eye roll However, I love crime stories This book is a whirlwind ride with just the right amount of crime, revenge and naked fun times to meet all my needs I enjoyed the metaphorical and literal fires ignited throughout the story And I found myself cheering the characters on I m usually hesitant to read romance novels because they can get too cheesy describing sex I m always reminded of the guidance counselor in 10 Things I Hate about You and her repeated references to his turgid member eye roll However, I love crime stories This book is a whirlwind ride with just the right amount of crime, revenge and naked fun times to meet all my needs I enjoyed the metaphorical and literal fires ignited throughout the story And I found myself cheering the characters on until the very end The writing overall was spectacular The pacing was just right the transitions between viewpoints were well executed I expected the ending, but loved the way it was written with just the right amount of cheesy goodness I look forward to readingof Ms Bella s work after this
