Claire Daniels is good at a lot of things, but dating isn't one of them. Although she enjoys men of all different shapes, colors, and sizes, she has one requirement: they must have a job on her approved-occupation list. It has to be safe, so they can come home every night, which means no cops, pilots, doctors, ranchers, and absolutely no firefighters.

She’s kept to her rules thus far—as long as you ignore the tiny crush she has on Trevor Allen, a crush that cannot move toward anything physical because Trevor is a firefighter and a rancher. Not to mention, he’s four years younger than she is and the brother of her two best friends.

Still, it sure would be nice to have him put out her fire.

Trevor Allen also has a few rules when it comes to Claire Daniels: no staring, flirting, smokin’ hot fantasies, or touching of any kind. He's been lusting after Claire his whole life, but with a steady stream of willing women and two demanding jobs to hold his attention, he's somehow managed to keep his hands off her.

Until they end up in a bathroom together—a small bathroom with very little room to move, leaving him pressed against Claire’s lush curves. What's he supposed to do when she looks up at him with those big, green doe eyes and licks her lips? The only thing he can do: kiss the hell out of her, then convince her it can’t happen again.

Too bad he can't convince himself.

My Review

Crazy Hot Love by K. L. Grayson is book two in the Dirty Dicks series. It is a friends-to-lovers romance.

“Life is one big gamble, Claire. You can either play with the cards you’re dealt or you can sit out and watch, and I’d rather play. I will always choose to play. I want to do more than play, I want to win. I want the jackpot, and that’s you.”

Woohoo!   I fluffing LOVED the beginning of this novel.   Right from the start, awkward descends in and we can feel every molecule of the uncomfortable as it settles and gives us an out-of-the-gate setup that is too funny not to burst with raucous laughter.

“Life is short. There’s only one thing more precious than our time, and that’s who we spend it with. And I’d really like to spend my time with you.”

Who doesn’t swoon for affection that is mutually felt from far away?  Claire and Trevor have had a distant infatuation with each other for several years.  There’ve been secret glances, hidden innuendos, and silent ogling on both sides of the line.  But crossing that line was ALWAYS a no-no. And lust-filled passion can’t get any hotter than with two people who dare to cross a line.

“When you’re around, I feel like I’m standing on the edge of a cliff. I can’t think, let alone form words, and I’m seconds away from hurling myself off the edge, and that’s terrifying. What if you’re not there to catch me?”

This story was so good.  It made my heart swell and burst wide open for all of the characters.  I loved Claire and Trevor. Reading their story, I knew without a doubt that they were it for each other.  Their relationship may not have been easy to get to, but once it began, there was a symbiotic flow to it that seemed to make the universe happy. Getting another glimpse of familiar family and friends also provided more moments to cherish and hold close.

“I would rather love you and risk losing you than not have you at all, because my life doesn’t work without you in it.”

Sweetness dripped from the pages of Crazy Hot Love. Hot cowboys and a fireman packed the heat, while happily-ever-afters flowed through the pages.
