New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton is back with a friends-to-lovers romance sure to melt hearts as one smokin'-hot fireman turns up the heat on love.
It's time to turn up the heat...
Relationships. Firefighter Rafe Donovan avoids them whenever possible. He makes sure the women he dates know up front that he's in it for a good time, great sex and nothing more.
Fun. Carmen Lewis does have time for anything except being an ER nurse and looking after her disabled grandfather. But Rafe has always been there for them both, and he's clearly interested in Carmen. She knows he's a player, but she's very tempted by his charm and incredible body. And maybe a little fun isn't so bad - as long as she guards her heart.
Love. Rafe soon realizes that until now he's only been playing at romance. With Carmen he feels searing passion and heart-tugging emotion for the first time. Now he just has to convince her that what they have together is the real deal.
Want more sexy romance? Look for the first sizzling Brotherhood by Fire novel and the delightful Boots and Bouquets series. Don't miss the Play-By-Play series which began with The Perfect Play. And check out Jaci's gorgeously romantic Hope series beginning with Hope Flames.
There really isn’t another way to say this so here goes… read this book! If there is one thing I love, it’s when a known player falls for the girl next door. LOVE it I tell you! Throw in the mix that said player is a really good guy, a firefighter, and has equally HOT brothers… yeah… SOLD! Add in the fact that the leading lady is kind, sweet, hard-working, oh and equally a relationship-phobe? Absolute perfection!
Jaci Burton is back with another installment of the Brotherhood by Fire series and she absolutely delivers a winner. It’s hard not fall for Rafe and Carmen’s story. They are strong, independent, hard-working people who really are meant to be. They may not realize it right away, but that’s okay, because that is what makes reading this book so entertaining. I am big fan of this author, this genre, and definitely this series, so this book hit the spot.
Raje and Carmen bring a whole new level to the “friends-to-lovers” romance novel… they bring the steamy, sexy side and they bring the sweet side too. Watching (well reading) Rafe fall for Carmen and fight for her to realize how much they are meant to be was my favorite part of the story line. Throw some angst in the mix and you’ll for sure be reading long into the night. This is classic Jaci Burton and I couldn’t have been happier. Definitely recommend!
