She's a Spitfire - Chloe Liese

She’s a Spitfire
Chloe Liese
(Tough Love #2)
Publication date: June 24th 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
One fiery-haired, sexy scientist finds her perfect complement in a dark and handsome soccer star. Opposites attract, and they’ve got chemistry that’s explosive—literally.
Physics calls it entropy. Philosophy calls it Murphy’s Law: If something can go wrong, eventually it will. Professionally and personally speaking, Zed’s familiar with the principle. After a decade of trying to alter the atomic makeup of the mafia from its nucleus, now he’s set on leaving The Life and pursuing his heart. Problem is, the sassy, hot-headed spitfire he can’t quit is meddling in his slow burn escape plan, and turning it into full-on combustion.
Not to mention, Nairne’s got a painful history she won’t talk about and more secrets than she has lab instruments—which is really saying something. In an ideal world, the bad boy footballer would follow the brainy beauty overseas and they’d live happily ever after. But Murphy’s Law is proven true, as Zed finds his world imploding and his escape plan foiled. These enemies turned lovers end up discovering how costly it can be to meet the right person at the wrong time.
A present he can’t escape.
A past she can’t forget.
A future they won’t stop fighting for.
They say all’s fair in love…and war.
Book Two in the Tough Love Series—an enemies to lovers, suspenseful romance, full of sexy Italians, feisty heroines, globe-trotting action, and an ending that’ll both satisfy you and leave you ready for more!

Author Bio:
Chloe’s always been a sucker for a suspenseful steamy romance, ever since she managed to find the one saucy mystery series hiding in her high school’s prim little library. Nothing drives her crazier than a story that cranks up the heat, then closes the door on the reader’s face, so don’t read her books if you don’t want to know what actually happens when the lights fade to black…
When she’s not writing, Chloe’s busy reading books of all genres, rereading Harry Potter (which she can’t help but make her characters similarly obsessed over), and playing catch-up with her bad@$$ little girls. She’s also been known to scramble around the pitch for a pick-up soccer match and run along the river while dreaming up her next book.

My Review 

This is the second book in the Tough Love trilogy, in some cases, you can read books that form part of a series as stand-alone stories but with these books, you really need to read He's A Brute first. 
This second book picks up from more or less where the first one left off. Since they first met, the relationship between Zed and Nairne has intensified. Not physically, it was pretty intense in that way, to begin with, but their feelings have grown and the idea of being a short term partnership is clearly not going to work any more.
I'm really enjoying reading about both Zed and Nairne. I like their relationship and the way that their characters complement one another. It does appear that they might be too headstrong and stubborn to work, but if anything, that's what makes them work so well.
There's a lot for them both to deal with in this book. I did wonder if it would leave anything for book three, although something that happened towards the end of this book set that up. I do like the way that Nairne's disability is portrayed and the way that she copes with it.
I'm interested to see what will happen next for this couple. I think they deserve their happily ever after, that I assume they are going to get.
