Book Review: Dante's Fire by Jennifer Probst

Dante has been both blessed and cursed with his superhuman abilities since he was a young boy. He has honed his skill over time in order to help those in need. However, it leaves him to live a very lonely life. He has found it impossible to maintain a relationship so he just stops trying. Masquerading as a low level employee in his own company, Dante finds that he has silently fallen in love with an executive. He plans on keeping his feelings to himself until everything changes the night she is the one who needs his help.

Selina has worked up from absolutely nothing to the top of the New York City property world. Determined to have a successful career, she has little time or desire for romance. She may be attracted to her very handsome coworker, but that is all it can ever be - attraction. It's not until she is in desperate need of saving that she realizes how truly lonely she is. Now she must reconcile the feelings she has for both her nighttime savior and daytime flirt. And what will happen when Selina finds out the truth about who Dante really is?

Paranormal romance is not something I am used to seeing from Jennifer Probst and I am still fairly new to the genre myself. So I was a tad bit nervous going in. Which was totally unwarranted because this was fantastic.

I really liked Dante a lot. There are the obvious reasons being that he is quite sexy and all, but also because I found his gift intriguing. I didn't fully understand his abilities at first, but they are explained as the story unfolds and what he does just made me respect him even more. Plus there is a sadness to him because he feels he can't be with the one he loves and it made we want to just hold this tough, yummy man in my arms.

Selina has fought her way to the top in a male dominated profession and she  has a take no prisoners attitude. Seeing her broken was heart wrenching for me. But the beautiful part was watching as Dante slowly helped her pick up those pieces and build her confidence again.

Jennifer Probst is a go to author for me because I know without a doubt that I will enjoy everything that she writes. Dante's Fire made me cry and made me smile and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

Favorite Quotes
"Every move I make, every touch, is because you allow it. Your body and surrender is a gift to me. You have all the power, Selina."

"Lay back, baby. I've been dying to know how you taste."
