In the latest eBook original novel in Ruthie Knox’s scorching-hot Camelot series, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.

Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.

Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.

Ruthie Knox nailed Flirting with Disaster! I have adored this series since I picked up my first book by her and Flirting with Disaster is no exception, in fact, Sean and Katie have made me fall in love all over again, with one Ruthie Knox. Two thumbs up for this author who has this girl crushing hard on her stories!

I thought Katie and Sean were a wicked fun couple. I loved the whole premises of these two having known each other since their school years, yet couldn't get it together enough to make any sort of move. Sean's big secret has always stood in their way, dictating his reactions towards our heroine. He has crushed on Katie since high school, but never made his move since every time he gets around her his stuttering takes on a mind of its own and he becomes so tongue-tied that he won’t talk for fear she will judge him. Katie is a bit lost after her divorce, and she too is crushing hard on Sean. She is ready to move on, and she is ready to do that with Sean in her bed. However, since Sean never ever speaks around her, like never, Katie thinks Sean hates her and she just doesn't understand it.

Katie is a fantastic leading female character who is strong willed, independent, gorgeous, sassy and in search of finding herself. She needs a place to fit in and her brother's security firm is the one place that she feels safe enough to succeed. Katie doesn't want to be an office manager any longer, she wants to be a field agent within her brother's company. Enter Judah Pratt and his specific request for Caleb to send Katie on her first assignment, which he does grudgingly, however she must take her nemesis with her.

Sean has become one of my favorite male hero's. He is successful, gorgeous, and always in control, but Sean is also flawed and imperfect, which made me adore his character so much more. It was a nice change to read about an alpha male who wasn't down right perfect or emotionally damaged. Sean's flaw was a physical one, one he has control over until he is back in Camelot and in front of his high school crush again. I loved the idea of this gorgeous vulnerable imperfect male who is always in control losing this control around the girl he has always been in love with. Katie shakes him up so much, he has no choice but to acknowledge her, and when he does, the chemistry between these two becomes downright hot.

With Katie and Sean thrown together on this assignment, they are forced to face their issues, let the push and pull begin and watch the sparks and tempers begin to fly! Sean will snag a piece your heart with his vulnerability, and Katie will impress the socks off of you with her patience and the way she shows her love for Sean. My absolutely favorite part of this book was the way Katie handled Sean and his stuttering, that alone cemented this book with a five star read, and she kind of slid her way into becoming one of my favorite read heroines.

Flirting with Disaster wasn't jammed packed with lots of action and the drama wasn't so overly angsty that I had to set it aside or feel the need to throw my tablet, with that said, Sean and Katie have both found a special place in my heart. I appreciated the fact that Ruthie focused more on their relationship and the measures they went to entertain us while overcoming their personal obstacles. This couple has become one of my favorites and I will be revisiting them over and over again.

Thank you to Harlequin for the opportunity to read and review, Flirting with Disaster in exchange for my honest opinion.
