Flirting with Disaster  - Ruthie Knox 3 "it's not you, it's me" stars. If you're into contemporary romance with a high steam level, this will be your perfect book. I'm not hugely into contemporary, and the plot wasn't thrillerish enough to hold my interest, but it was certainly well written, and people whose taste in books leans toward this genre will eat it up.I do really appreciate that the hero was a bit atypical--a computer hacker with a severe stutter (and mommy issues). That said, there was a weird amount of geek shaming going on, with Katie teasing Sean about being a geek, and Sean being really defensive and embarrassed about it. Apparently Ruthie Knox hasn't gotten the memo about geeks being cool these days? I felt like I was reading a book set in the '90s during those bits.In the end this book wasn't for me, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a lighthearted and steamy read.
