I can't express enough just how long I've been waiting for another book by Sarah Grimm, especially another Black Phoenix book. I was quite the ecstatic one when this showed up on my Kindle to read!  I LOVED the first book, so it was a pleasure for me to come back into this world and read Midnight Heat. 

Just like the first, it captured my attention, stole my breath and took me on a ride with plenty of emotions. From the start, I was sucked in. I stayed up way too late, but Dominic was soooo worth it. 

On one of her long shifts, the last person Rebecca expects to see in the ER is ex lover and the man she's barely just begun to get over, Dominic. What a shocker! She's of course concerned about him and she's immediately drawn into his world again. Her heart and her head are telling her two different things. 

Dominic....oh yum. Really, what more is there to say? He made a mistake three years ago, but all he wants now is to have Rebecca in his life. Push and pull, these two have so much to deal with in terms of emotions and conflicting feelings about the status of their relationship. 

I loved that we also get to catch up with the sexy Noah and Isabeau. I loved how much a part of this story they were. They didn't take away from Rebecca and Dom's story, but they were most definitely a big part. I love books that intertwine characters from previous books. 

Grimm's writing is flawless, the story just jumps off the pages and lures the reader into the lives of these characters.  I'm now wondering just how long it'll be before I can get my hands on this authors next book! 

If you're a fan of a second chance story, a sexy musician, and plenty of emotion, don't wait. Pick up Midnight Heat, like stat! 

~ About the Author ~

Sarah Grimm is a wife and mother of two—five if you count her much-loved dogs. She resides in beautiful West Michigan, near the white sandy beaches of Lake Michigan.

The youngest of four, Sarah can’t remember a time when she wasn’t writing. In fact, her siblings believe she began writing in utero to pass the time. As a child, Sarah wrote constantly, littering the house with bulging spiral notebooks and ignoring the ribbing of her mother and sister who routinely said romances? in a somewhat scornful tone. Little did they know, Sarah would go on to win a 2011 Readers Favorite Award for her romantic suspense, Not Without Risk, and her interracial contemporary romance, After Midnight would both final in the 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, as well as win the 2012 Romance Through the Ages Award.

Vivacious and imaginative, Sarah spends much of her day managing the family marine repair business while listening in on the lives of her characters. In the evening, she writes it all down, weaving the story as she goes. She says this method works well for her, except on the days when her hero and heroine insist on a steamy love scene while she’s answering the telephone or doing the taxes!

When asked what he thinks of her choice of genres, Sarah’s husband grins wickedly and answers, “It makes for interesting evenings.” Hmmm.
