Chase Fisk spends his days teaching new recruits how to become EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) Specialists. A new group every eleven weeks, and even in his private life he exhibits the calm reserve that you'd expect from someone in that role. When Vivian Brooks crosses his path however, sparks begin to fly.
Right from the first chapter you can sense the explosion that's coming, making the title, perfectly apt.
Told third person, which I'm not usually much of a fan of in romance novels, Caisey Quinn piles angst upon tension as this forbidden romance inexorably works it's way toward a breathtaking conclusion.
With a diverse array of vibrant characters, helping to build a vivid sense of depth for such a short story, I was drawn in and held captive right to the ending where things are set up perfectly for the first full length novel in the series. One I'm already waiting eagerly for.
