    2. I was lucky and got an ARC copy. Barbara Johnson (Bobby-Jean) worked very hard to over coming being raised poor and by the town drunk. She goes into companies and closes them. She is sent back to her home town to close the last factory in town. She hopes no one remembers her.Ryder Bishop is Barbara's high school crush. He is still struggling in the home town. Barbara hires him to fix up her house. They have lots of sparks and people trying to keep them apart.

    3. I received this ARC in return for an honest review. I loved this story. It was a real romance. We get to know the characterse this relationship grow and experience the hardships they go through. The chemical between this is scorching too! 5 stars!

    4. 3.5 stars I enjoyed the story but felt that Ryder was too hot and cold. One minute he can't get enough of her and the next he's angry and says mean/rude things. I understand that she's insecure but I think most women would call him on his behavior. And I don't believe she would really just let him leave after he completely misunderstands something she said. The story was good and I liked the characters, I just felt these things kept me from giving it 5 stars.

    5. Great read I really liked this story about a very quiet rundown beach town due to the economy and how the try survive day to day then get news the factory that houses most the jobs being closed. Which brings violent drama and romance that keeps you hooked from beginning to end.

    6. AwesomeLoved this romance! The conflict and emotions were so real that they pulled you along with them. You truly feel a part of the story.

    7. I received an ARC copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.This was a very interesting story with different perspectives playing out. It is told in both MC POV and that is hard to do but it came off flawless. And the setting, which was Ocean Crest, NJ as a small town was great. I felt like I was completely there and could feel the small town feel. This is a small town slowly dying out , and everyone into everybody’s business. Barbara Johnson had lived here years ago, as BJ and thi [...]

    8. I loved that this story was from both their POV. They were great characters and I had a good feel for both of them from the beginning with an excellent introduction to each of them. The story had good flow throughout and an excellent build with drama and intensity throughout as well. Loved the chemistry and the passion that these two characters unexpectedly find with each other. Ryder Bishop has lived in Ocean Crest his entire life, high school sport jock that all the girls were in love with, an [...]

    9. Finally! A book that I could really get into, and did! Unfortunately, I had been on a bit of a reading hiatus as I had gone through a few books that were more irritating to me as a reader rather than entertaining. Finally, a book that pulled me out of the hiatus. Therefore, I would like to personally thank the author(s) for writing this fantastic book. It has a little bit of everything in this book: transformation, loyalty, intimacy, misunderstanding, stereotyping, suspense, and family drama. I [...]

    10. I was really lucky to get an advanced readers copy of this book. So glad too. It was a great read that had me so hooked I finished it in one sitting. I love the character development and (without giving too much away) there is some miscommunication that breaks them up for a while. The story is written from both his POV and hers, which is difficult to write. But the author does a pretty good job of keeping you up to speed with the events while giving a taste for what both are thinking. It's kind [...]

    13. This was an interesting story. I am one that comes from a small town so I know what small towns can be like and what means to keep businesses going in that small town. Ocean Crest was a small town where everyone knew everyone. Barbara Johnson had a job to do. Her job was not pretty and could hurt a lot of people. How strange it had to be for her to return to the small town of Ocean Crest. She was wondering how long it would take people to know who she was. Barbara was a beautiful plus size woman [...]

    16. I enjoyed reading "Flirting With Disaster" by Ava Catori & Olivia Rigal. These two authors really made an impact on the subject of the demise of small towns. I had no problem relating to these characters. While Ryder seems at first to be the town Ladies Man it soon becomes clear that he is much more than that. Normally attracted to a leaner "fit" woman, he finds himself intrigued by this voluptuous female who has come to town to close the factory. Barbara knows who he is immediately, the tow [...]

    17. A Review of Flirting With Disaster by Ava Catori & Olivia RigalGreat storyline - 3 starsBarbara Johnson dreaded going home. It was a simple job to close a factory. She'd done it several times before. What made this time different was being forced back to the very town she'd fled years ago hoping never to return. Ryder Bishop was strong and sexy. A lady's man who reserved his loyalty to Ocean Crest, New Jersey. The last thing he expected was to fall for the plentiful figure of the enemy. So w [...]

    18. Flirting with Disaster is a quick read that was entertaining at times. I enjoyed the storyline and the dual point of views provided a great insight into the characters heads and their hearts. Barbara comes back to her hometown a changed person. She’s successful and she’s made something of herself. She uses a different name, so no one recognizes her. The reason Barbara is in town, makes her an enemy to most of the town, especially Ryder and his family. Barbara and Ryder’s relationship isn [...]

    19. Spoilers are in this review!!!!! When I opened up this book and started to read it, I feel in love with how the story starts off with Ryder's point of view of being already in the act of doing something. As I read on more seeing the book written in both Ryder's and Barbara's point of views. Learning that the readers get to hear the thoughts of both on what is going on in the story is something that I fell in love with!!! One of my favorite lines in this book so far is one of Ryder's "I stroked m [...]

    20. This was an interesting story about something that is all to common in the world today. Big business wants to make a profit and if they are not they send someone in to access the situation and eventually shut it down. Through out history this has been the cause of several ghost towns as it was impossible to survive without the closed business. Our male and female main characters were written to face over powering obstacles. Barbara has a chip on her shoulder due to her personal history with the [...]

    21. SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMYI enjoyed this story, it keeps the pages turning with the twist and turns as the mystery unfolds. Ryder Bishop is sexy hot but has a reputation of "love them and leave them" with no strings attached. He loves his father and even though the town is slowly dying, lack of business, he has remained in Ocean Crest, NJ. Ryder's mother died when he was young and his younger brother has moved away to California. Bobby Jean Johnson left Ocean Crest and is now returning as Barbara J [...]

    23. The story is about Barbara and Ryder finally finding discovering what could be Ryder is the heart throb of her high years.

    25. Overall this was an ok read for me. I really liked the premise of the plot and felt that the storyline regarding the factory was original. This was told in dual POV which is always my favourite as I feel you get a better feel for characters. My only issue with this in this book was at the beginning each alternating chapter was told in dual POV but it went over the scene from each other which made it feel like there was some repetition. There was some pretty steamy scenes throughout, however, the [...]

    27. I received a ARC to read and give a review. This is my first book I read from Ava Cartori. The storyline was great but it was told in a two person voice and they didn't correspond well going so far as repeating their sentences which made it confusing at times it didn't flow well at all which was a shame because I enjoyed the characters and its sexy and sensual. The storyline was excellent because it's about something that is all to common in the world today and it kept me reading until I finish [...]

    28. When Barbara Johnson goes back home after 10 years, she is there for a job. And that job is to close the only factory left in Ocean Crest New Jersey.
