In She’s a Spitfire, the second book in the Tough Love  series by Chloe Liese, the attraction between Nairne and Zed is still as strong as ever.

I’m still as in love with this couple as I was in the beginning. There is just something about Nairne and Zed that speaks to me. And I can’t wait to read the conclusion to their dramatic and engrossing journey.

Nevertheless this book didn’t captivate me as much as He’s a Brute did and I can’t really put my finger on it.

One thing is for sure, I was missing a little bit of their banter which I loved so much in the first book. Nairne’s sassy attitude and her habit of pushing Zed’s buttons was missing and it did make a big difference to me. Especially for someone that loves banter as much as I do.

And I would have loved more relationship growth between Nairne and Zed, and for them to have more time as a couple instead of all the many plot lines. There was so much going on, I had the feeling as if some of their love story was swallowed by all the drama happening around them.

Unfortunately because of this, I wasn’t as invested in She’s a Spitfire as I was in He’s a Brute. And I think that’s mostly because Nairne and Zed’s relationship was overshadowed. For me their relationship was what made me fall in love with them in the first place, and I felt it took a back seat in She’s a Spitfire.

Besides a couple things that didn’t make as much sense to me, She’s a Spitfire was still a solid performance by the author. There is no doubt in my mind that I’ll be reading whatever the author is writing next.

She's a Spitfire - Chloe Liese

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!



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.

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 badass little girls. She’s also been known to scramble around the pitch for a pick-up soccer match and run while dreaming up her next book.
