My review cross-posted from: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/new-reviews/boiling-point-by-mia-watts
Fauna Harper and her four siblings are all half-breed faeries which means that, as a minus, their “gifts” are all “faerily imperfect.” Fauna’s power is the ability to disappear, which always happens when she doesn’t want it to, including when she meets Cooper Blank, Harper Security’s newest hire, and the man she has to work with. Cooper sets Fauna’s blood to boiling, and the fact that he’s not magical makes things even better.
Only Cooper is magical. He’s a salamander (a fire elemental) on a secret mission to make sure certain government research is protected. Working with the sexy Fauna is just a bonus, but her dislike of all things magical and insistence on no-strings-attached sex complicates things. Can Cooper convince Fauna that she could use a little elemental magic in her life?
It’s no surprise that when Mia Watts creates a salamander hero, scorching hot sex ensues. Boiling Point is an erotic, fun read the likes of which I’ve come to expect from the Faerily Imperfect series. Fauna’s dislike of faeries and other magical beings is understandable given the gifts/curses she and her siblings bear. However, it was fun to see Cooper try to win her over, even as he (understandably) attempts to hide his own abilities. Fauna and Cooper were a fantastic fit and I avidly read Boiling Point, delightedly watching the sparks fly between them.
Each Faerily Imperfect story stands on its own and Boiling Point is no exception. Still, fans of the first three books (Mind F*cked, Faery Surprising, and Freeze Frame) will delight in revisiting the Harper siblings and their partners again. I finished Boiling Point a well-satisfied reader and I can’t wait for the final Harper, Willow, to get her story.
