Hot and Irresistible by Diane Castell

Bebe Fitzpatrick's hard upbringing taught her how to take care of herself, how to tell true friends from false, and how to be a good cop. She can also sweet-talk a man like she means it...until she stumbles into the arms of a damn sexy Yankee who's gunning for Savannah's favorite shady entrepreneur...As far as Donovan McCabe is concerned, the main obstacle to his investigation is the one thing he can't help wanting in his way. Bebe's smart, sassy, and utterly oblivious to her own appeal. Add the fact that a Boston cop trying to arrest one of Savannah's best-loved citizens is about as popular as the reincarnation of General Grant. What Donovan needs is a better game plan. What he's about to get is southern "hospitality" that'll make his toes curl... [borrowed from GoodReads.com]

Bebe Fitzpatrick is sassy, funny and a tough cop. She’s this spitfire who has terrible taste in clothes, will run her mouth at the unlikeliest of times, and has no idea how sexy she truly is. In comes Donovan McCabe, tall, dark and handsome - looking to arrest a local do-gooder, but little did he know what was in store for him. He definitely wasn't expecting to find himself partnered with Bebe whose sexiness alone can drive him to distraction. But soon they find that it is up to them to get their heads out of thoughts of each other and into the game - in order to uncover the truths behind several mysteries: an unsolved murder, a missing diamond necklace, and some illegal gambling.

This was a quick read. With plenty of mystery and danger surrounding our main characters - and throw in some spicy love scenes and you are in for the long haul. Although I thought Bebe and Donovan's relationship was moving along very quickly, I thought they were a very likeable couple. Their conversations were fun and witty. I liked that Ms. Castell did not overpower the story with either the action/adventure or the romance. It had a perfect balance of both which I thought made the story flow easily. This is a fast-paced story with plenty of action and flirty romance to keep you interested. If you like mysteries, and/or action-packed romances, you definitely should pick this one up.
