Title: TORCH
Series: Take It Off  #1
By: Cambria Hebert
Publication Date: August 13th, 2013

***This is a new adult contemporary novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.***

If you can’t take the heat… stay away from the flame.

Katie Parks has been on her own since the age of fifteen. All she’s ever wanted is a place to call her own—a life that is wholly hers that no one can take away. She thought she finally had it, but with the strike of a single match, everything she worked so hard for is reduced to a pile of smoking ash. And she almost is too.

Now she’s being stalked by someone who’s decided it’s her time to die. The only thing standing in the path of her blazing death is sexy firefighter Holt Arkain.

Katie’s body might be safe with Holt… but her heart is another story.

As the danger heats up, sparks fly and the only thing Katie knows for sure is that her whole life is about to go up in flames.

My Thoughts:

This is it.
The last moments of my life.
I'm going to die alone.

When I heard that Cambria Hebert was writing a New Adult contemporary Romance I knew that I would have to read it. I knew how awesome she does paranormal so I was beyond keen to check out Torch. 

Katie Parks wakes up to find herself tied to a chair with her house burning down around her. Having no idea how these events happened her survival instinct kicks in as she tries to find a way to escape the inferno blazing around her. Fearing she is going to be burned alive in her home, when seemingly out of the flames comes her saviour. 

Waking later in hospital she is surprised to discover that she has had a constant visitor over the last few days. The gorgeous firefighter who saved her life, Holt Arkaine. With Katie having no home to go to Holt makes her an offer of coming to stay with him. The sparks between Katie and Holt begin to fly immediately. But Katie has bigger problems than protecting her heart. She soon comes to the realisation that someone out there is trying to kill her.

Torch was a really quick read and despite Katie's life being in the balance it wasn't too heavily weighed down. The plot was engaging and kept things interesting. The details of Katie's attacker don't really become all that clear until towards the end of the book so you are constantly trying to guess who it could possibly be.

His lips were like a really sinful slice of chocolate cake. You knew if you ate it, you would hate yourself in the morning, but the call of that chocolate was so utterly strong you had to take a bite.

I really Liked Katie and Holt together and since most of their time is spent with each other, as a couple is where their growth as characters centred. We learn a bit about Katie's past throughout the book and it hasn't been an easy ride and she's had to grow up quickly and since she's been by herself for so long it shows how strong she is. Holt's honesty is what I liked most about him. He told Katie exactly how he was feeling and didn't mince his words in regards to what he wanted with her. The heat factor and romance between the two of them was really believable despite everything happening quite quickly.

Even though this is a series, the books are standalone's so everything is neatly wrapped up at the end of this. Cambria Hebert did a fantastic job with Torch. It was a really enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the other books in the series!!

4/5 Sexy Holt Stars.
