Taking the Heat by Victoria Dahl is indeed the perfect steamy romance for all. A passion unlike anything known in our world. One that ignites into flames of sweet irresistible romance. I choose this novel by Victoria Dahl not only because she has the talent to write but because I have read a few of her novels. Novels that lured me into worlds that were too good to put down at night. This particular novel of hers caught my eyes and utmost attention. The story is about a woman writer who took chances to follow her dreams. Veronica Chandler took her chance and was soon headed back home, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Great name for a place to live, which was interesting to me. Veronica has taken a huge low dip in her pride and ego as a writer wanting to make it big. She ends up writing for a romance advice column. Could she sink any lower? A woman has to do what she has to do. Although Veronica like most women in reality have a non-existent sex life. No sex nor romance to speak of until…a very hot librarian makes her come undone. Enters Gabe MacKenzie. He’s most than just a smoking hot Librarian. He has a family legacy that he’s trying to avoid. Something about Veronica makes him want to explore everything there is about her. However there’s his legacy to live up to and he plans to make a few nights with Veronica to always remember. One problem….neither one expected for the explosive yet highly intense passion that ignites between them both.
Taking the Heat is a perfect title that suits Victoria Dahl’s latest novel. A perfect must read for everyone. Readers will be addicted from page one until the ending. Then, they will be looking out for the next new exciting story waiting for them to discover, by this best-selling writer. I definitely enjoyed reading this well written tale. One thing for sure, was that I could not put the novel down until I finished it. Beware, this writer has a power to take you deep into her world of fiction only to leave you taking the heat. Characters are lovable and easy to connect with. Overall, I rate Taking the Heat a five out of five stars.
