He knows exactly how to make her burn…
Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt.
Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.
Lauren had me at sexy fireman. Didn’t have to force me to read this one. First, its Lauren Blakely, so you know you are getting a great story…great sex…and finish up completely satisfied. That’s pretty much how I felt as I started. But I didn’t expect that it would all happen so fast.
Lauren had me hooked from chapter 1 and that rarely happens for me. We don’t even know these characters and yet I am so interested and turned on already. Who does that?
Gotta leave it to Blakely; it’s in her words. I mean God, best sex ever and we are only at chapter 3? What’s that all about? By chapter 3 I am hooked and totally enthralled by the story. Still so much more to learn about Becker and Megan and yet I feel like I know them so well.
Becker owns a local bar, and is also a volunteer fireman. New to town, he’s looking to start over, forget the ugly past he left behind, the hurt, the pain and guilt and start over in this town. One night he meets Megan in his bar. And when I tell you sparks fly….they fly….these two have some seriously hot sexual chemistry. Not to mention the dialog between them is fucking hysterical and in just one night of tensions, and hotness melting off their skin, they decide to act on it.
“I live two blocks away. Let me undress you. Let me spread you out on my bed. Let me taste you,” he said in a low, raspy voice, his tone conveying his desire.
Excuse me…what??? Did I just drool or did my panties go flying?
Megan is just getting out of a bad relationship and just came home to shoot the fireman’s calendar so this one night kinda thing is just what she needs. Bang and Be out!! Oh and do they bang!!
Megan is such a likeable heroine And she’s HOT…and spicy, feisty and she definitely knows what she wants, especially from a man.
” I never come quickly, so let’s see what you can do.”
This is me “high fiving” Megan. I totally wanna be her!!! Go get your O girl…HOLLA!!
Unfortunately this union is short lived when they find out that there can’t be another romp. Turns out Megan’s brother is best buddies with Becker at the firehouse and he’s forbid Becker from going near his sister. HMM…that should go over well.
Becker has major issues; he’s not relationship material. The closer you get, the further you dig into someone soul, just means that in an instant it can all vanish. So why start one? He’s lost loved ones…he’s hurt and let’s his fear motivate him. He makes me kinda sad. I felt like poor Becker was so alone. I wanted Megan to save him from himself in the worst way.
Megan isn’t alone in this battle of relationships and fears either. She won’t date fireman because her father died fighting fire. She won’t do it…be left alone…God these two are killing me.
This story totally rocks. The back and forth, the push and pull. And the sex!! GOD!! He’s got such a mouth on him…
I just loved how it all came together, how they try and figure it out. Two lovers torn between their lust and their fears. It’s HOT. It’s a pager turner. It’s a one click. It’s classic Lauren Blakely.
Becker and Megan will rock your Mother f’n kindle!
