Review for Flashpoint by Brooke Blaine

The first time I saw her, I knew I’d have to kill her. 

It’s been five years since the brutal death of her mother, and Katherine Shaw still relives the nightmares of that night. 
She escaped. 
The danger should’ve been over. 
She couldn’t have been more wrong. 
When her father, a prominent Justice, receives a chilling death threat, her past comes hurtling into her present. 
The warning is clear: They’ve got unfinished business, and they’re coming for her. 

Katherine Shaw. 
Rich girl? Check. 
Spoiled and obstinate? Check. 
A beautiful fireball who pushes every button he has? That was not listed on the dossier Jason Garrett receives when he’s assigned as one of her bodyguards. The last thing he ever expected was that his tempting client would prove to be more dangerous than those he’s protecting her from. 

Their attraction would be forbidden even under the best circumstances. But as the threat draws near, the tension between the two of them rises, culminating in an explosive flash point that will blindside them both. 

Flash Point is a standalone romantic suspense novel.

OK let me start off by saying, the first line of the blurb really had me confused. I am such a sucker for romantic suspense books. I read A LOT of them and when one catches my eye for one reason or another I always give it a go. Ok so now onto this book. I mean honestly I took that first line (The first time I saw her, I knew I’d have to kill her) and really tried to figure it out. What did it mean? Who was saying that? And then the more I read the more confused that line made me. So I decided ok I'm not going to think about that at all and trust that the author will reveal what it means in time. And boy did she ever! I was completely thrown for a minute and then it all made perfect sense. Little things in the book that I was like hmmmm, what does that mean? Who did it? And then like a light bulb came on and I said OHHHHHH, CRAP it totally makes sense now. How did I miss that? I'll tell you how, because the author did a fantastic job leading me around and making me second guess my thoughts. Honestly at first, I felt like it started out kinda slow, but then it sort of just took off and the next thing I knew I was at the end. I loved Jason's character from the very beginning and even though Katherine annoyed me at first, she was quickly redeemed to be a great heroine. I personally wanted the ending to be a bit more definitive, I understand why the author did it the way she did. This book for me was 4 AMAZEBALLS stars!! A copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.
