Masen Crisfield fell in love with Booth Jones when she was sixteen years old. Booth was the love of her life. The rock she needed to get her through the day. Then she rips his heart out while he’s deployed, leaving him wondering just what he’d done to warrant something so severe as a breakup that neither of them wanted.
Stubbornness is their middle name, and ten long years pass before either one of them try to breach the gap.
Circumstances force Booth to come home, and within an hour of him being back in his hometown, there she is. Right back in the forefront of his mind where he knows she shouldn’t be.
The day he starts his first civilian job at Kilgore Fire Department, his worst fear of seeing Masen is realized. And not only does he see her, but he sees her with another man. A fellow firefighter that he has to trust with his life.
It soon becomes apparent that they are both still just as much in love with each other now as they were the moment they met. But there’s a problem. Booth’s married, and Masen’s in a committed relationship.
They fight the pull with everything they have, but they’re both about to learn the true meaning of flash point as the two of their lives crash together. Their love consuming everything in its path.
I was hoping that after the way we are introduced to Masen and Booth at the end of Shock Advised that Flash Point would be as hot as the definition in regards to a fire would be. While it did have it’s hot and explosive moments I had really been hoping for more.
I wanted Masen and Booth to become explosive together, I wanted that snarky feisty girl we were introduced to in Shock Advised to make Booth work for it and not just only begin to light that fire between them but for it to form into a full on inferno but she tuned out to be a spark that didn’t really ignite. Don’t get me wrong, I did like and enjoy Flash Point but I didn’t feel that soul deep connection between these two that the author was trying to show us that they had. I liked the second chance aspect of the storyline and that they were able to reconnect and get back together but something was just missing. I don’t know if it is the storyline with Booth and his situation with his ex-wife or if it is just me personally but I just didn’t feel that this one worked as well as previous books have.
Overall Flash Point was an enjoyable read that did provide this book whore with more than one laugh, had me feeling emotions from sadness to happiness, and while it wasn’t my favorite it is still one that fans of Lani Lynn Vale should read.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
Taima, a.k.a. Tai, is the last person people come to for help. He’s the fuck up…the bad boy…the guy that only looks out for himself.
Which couldn’t be further from the truth.
He’s fought hard to become the man he is today. He’s a hero in the public’s eye. A firefighter that the young all the way to the old turn to for help at the lowest point in their lives.
What people don’t know, though, is that he’s no hero. He’s the reason his sister is dead, and he’ll spend the rest of his life trying to right that wrong.
Then one split second decision has him coming face to face with Mia Darling. The woman changes his life, making him reevaluate everything he thought he had figured out, and showing him the tenderness he never knew he needed.
Just like always, though, his luck runs out.
When the smoke settles, Mia’s gone, and Tai realizes there’s no way he can live the rest of his life without her. He’ll show her just how hard a bad boy will fight to get his woman back, and he’s not opposed to fighting dirty.
