    Singe 3 StarsSinge featured the story of Stephen and Julia Julia needed to escape her hometown, so she decided to move from California to a small town in Texas And when she meets the sexy, volunteer firefighter and roofer, Stephen, she thinks that she may just give love a chance Sparks fly quickly, till she discover that Stephen is a bit of adrenalin junkie Julia isn t sure if her heart can handle that again, since the man she left in California was a daredevil too But Stephen isn t anything Singe 3 StarsSinge featured the story of Stephen and Julia Julia needed to escape her hometown, so she decided to move from California to a small town in Texas And when she meets the sexy, volunteer firefighter and roofer, Stephen, she thinks that she may just give love a chance Sparks fly quickly, till she discover that Stephen is a bit of adrenalin junkie Julia isn t sure if her heart can handle that again, since the man she left in California was a daredevil too But Stephen isn t anything like her ex or so he wants to show her Bikes, fires, fast cars, and salsa equals one fun ride.Singe started kinda choppy and abrupt, but the flow smoothed out after about chapter Stephen and Julia meet quickly and form a fast relationship, but they kinda have to since it s a novella Their fast love didn t really bother me, and I enjoyed seeing them flirt back and forth But it soon heated up even , and had a lot of hot, steamy, singe worthy sex scenes You may never look at Salsa the same again There was a lot of characters mentioned, and I m not really sure how they added to the story But, Dolly, who Julia was staying with till she finds a place and owns the local bar was a great, fun character She added a lot to this short story Smolder 4 StarsSmolder is the story of Marcus and Rayna Rayna walked out on Marcus and their marriage five years ago Leaving town, she s only now returned because of her grandma s illness and a fire at her grandma s house Marcus is not only works with the volunteer fire department, but he now works at the construction company that is fixing her grandma s home Still angry and hurt at Rayna, Marcus doesn t know what to expect when his ex wife shows back up in town Rayna still wants to run, but the two cannot deny the heat and past emotions that swirl between them.I enjoyed this story a bitthan Singe It flowed well, I didn t feel overwhelm with the characters And the best part about Marcus and Rayna was that they had history Even though it was rocky, it was great to see the simmering passion between the two The sex in Smolder was just as steamy as Singe, covering multiple chapters of moments Also, Smolder had a draw of mystery, because the reason why Rayna left isn t mentioned till the end I kept trying to figure it out through the whole book Smolder gave a better look into the fire department with the men answering a call I enjoyed this even though it was short, and found it realistic.Spark 3 StarsTalia and Dylan both volunteer together at the local fire department Talia has had a crush on Dylan since she started there, and even though Dylan realizes this and has feelings for Talia he refuses to act on them Then a night of passion finally forces the two to confront their feelings Dylan says they can never work, which leaves Talia to hatch a plan that proves that they can.Spark finally delivers in full what the other two lacked I loved seeing the whole fire department interact with each other for multiple chapters This was what I was expectingof when picking up a fireman book I wanted to the relationships within the department, and Spark delivers with some of these moments There is still a lot of characters running around and making appearances, that I wasn t sure how they exactly fit into the story It didn t bother me as much though since it was at community gathering More so though, it was great seeing appearance by Marcus and Rayna.Spark has a nice build, but the so called spark between Talia and Dylan didn t flow as smooth as the previous two Well the author still delivers a lot of steam, it didn t provide the same punch as the first novellas Steam aside, Talia and Dylan have a great plot line and story And Spark would be my second favorite in the book OverallOverall, I enjoyed these short novellas I wish I could have seen a bigger theme running through and interconnecting the three of them However, the small nods here and there were nice The sex as the title says was SMOKIN HOT The actually scenes though were long and drawn out over multiple chapters with a lot of explicitly It was almost overdone, and I wished for a little less heat and littlebuild The characters, especially Marcus, Stephen, Dolly, and Talia will win you over If you love firefighters, give this book a chanceThanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review

    I ve read LaFleur in the past and have enjoyed her work for the most part Unlike a lot of anthologies where we experience different authors works, this is all LaFleur and reads as a follow up to her Men with Tools series I didn t read any of that series, so I can t compare either characters or plot Unfortunately for me, all three stories in this book areabout the sex than the romance because I didn t see romance in any of them SingeThis was my least favorite story in the series Juli I ve read LaFleur in the past and have enjoyed her work for the most part Unlike a lot of anthologies where we experience different authors works, this is all LaFleur and reads as a follow up to her Men with Tools series I didn t read any of that series, so I can t compare either characters or plot Unfortunately for me, all three stories in this book areabout the sex than the romance because I didn t see romance in any of them SingeThis was my least favorite story in the series Julia Woods had just arrived to town She s recently made the move from California where she broke up with her ex boyfriend the prior month As she s new to the small town, Julia s staying with her mother s friend until she can secure a job and get her own place Stephen McGettis is a roofer and volunteer firefighter Once he sees Julia and her breasts, he s captivated by her beauty I think I might have laughed out loud with the focus that both Julia and Stephen had on her breasts.On her first day in town, Julia sees then meets Stephen and it s not soon after that they re on their first date Julia misses the sex that she had with her ex and Stephen seems like a good candidate It seems that Julia s attracted to guys who likes the fast life But she doesn t want to be because she s afraid that she s going to be hurt when anyone of the dare devil adventure sports that her current partner participates in either injures or kills him What s funny to me with Julia is that she was so focused on the sex, she forget to get to know the guy she s going to bed with I had no sympathy for her when she found out what Stephen did in his spare time I didn t feel any of the attraction between these two Stephen didn t have much of a voice and he didn t start showing a back bone until the last couple pages This story absolutely didn t work for me the sex was too fast and too much without any credible plot Like all readers, I would like at least a modicum of plot with my erotica Rating C D SmolderMy favorite in the stories, this is the story of Rayna and Marcus Holt Rayna walked out on Marcus five years ago after a tragedy that rocked their lives and their marriage Rayna is back in town to take care of her grandmother after she has a heart incident and is hospitalized This is coincidental to a fire that ravages the community and Marcus is one of the volunteer firefighters that battles the blaze During the fire he s injured and while at the hospital tending to his injury he sees Rayna for the first time since she left him These two worked most likely because they history and knowledge of each other As I m not a fan of the quick wham bam that history went a long way with me Their chemistry was there, maybe because we get both Marcus and Rayna s stories separately and their thoughts and actions are well plotted The sex was good but apparently in this town, everyone likes scratching and perky versus non perky breast What I didn t accept was Rayna s explanation for her departure and I think that Marcus should have pushed harder on that because I could see that happening again when the going gets tough I really enjoyed Rayna s grandmother and their relationship, there s a lot of knowledge to be had and gained from their interactions Rating BSparkTalia King moved to town two years earlier and has been in love with volunteer firefighter Dylan Westfield just as long Dylan has had a thing for Talia for the same amount of time but until now he s been unwilling to act Talia has been asking Dylan to go out with her and he s been turning her down every single time I actually felt sorry for Talia for being in love with someone who clearly didn t want anything to do with her in a romantic setting I honestly didn t understand why she kept trying and didn t move on instead I m not saying go to bed with the town man whore but at least realize where you re not wanted Dylan s excuse for not pursuing a relationship with Talia hadholes that swiss cheese It was just plain silly But the way they has sex for the first time was laughable, there s alcohol and a fire truck so cliche and forced Their chemistry was lacking and I didn t feel their love that I should have Even with their previous history, I never saw what they loved about each other because they clearly didn t know each other very well Rating C Happy Reading folks Overall Rating C ARC provided by publisher via NetGalleyReview also posted at www.redhotbooks.com

    3.5 out of 5 Well to bad you re going back in there After reading Hot Shots I wantedhunky firemen and this collection provided just that And again what a cover, I have developed quite a weakness for them.The three stories take place in the same town and all the characters are connected They make reappearances in each other s books, not to mention that we see familiar faces from the anthology Hot Shots The stories were fast paced and full of heat I liked how these stories besi3.5 out of 5 Well to bad you re going back in there After reading Hot Shots I wantedhunky firemen and this collection provided just that And again what a cover, I have developed quite a weakness for them.The three stories take place in the same town and all the characters are connected They make reappearances in each other s books, not to mention that we see familiar faces from the anthology Hot Shots The stories were fast paced and full of heat I liked how these stories besides being fun and sexy also had emotional aspects Deeper issues that might have beenat home in full novels but somehow the author made it work for these short stories Another thing I liked was that in all stories I was left guessing what exactly happened in the characters pasts that had caused the hurt Which worked for Smolder and Spark , in Singe I was a bit disappointed Don t get me wrong what happened to her was awful but only her condition was revealed, what about the ex boyfriend in what state was he Did she gave him the chance to apologize, did he even felt sorry Those thoughts wandered through my mind when I read that story But overall what can I say, I can never get enough of sexy firemen, if you can t either than be sure to read this collection Arc received from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Singe 3 StarsSinge featured the story of Stephen and Julia Julia needed to escape her hometown, so she decided to move from California to a small town in Texas And when she meets the sexy, volunteer firefighter and roofer, Stephen, she thinks that she may just give love a chance Sparks fly quickly, till she discover that Stephen is a bit of adrenalin junkie Julia isn t sure if her heart can handle that again, since the man she left in California was a daredevil too But Stephen isn t anything Singe 3 StarsSinge featured the story of Stephen and Julia Julia needed to escape her hometown, so she decided to move from California to a small town in Texas And when she meets the sexy, volunteer firefighter and roofer, Stephen, she thinks that she may just give love a chance Sparks fly quickly, till she discover that Stephen is a bit of adrenalin junkie Julia isn t sure if her heart can handle that again, since the man she left in California was a daredevil too But Stephen isn t anything like her ex or so he wants to show her Bikes, fires, fast cars, and salsa equals one fun ride.Singe started kinda choppy and abrupt, but the flow smoothed out after about chapter Stephen and Julia meet quickly and form a fast relationship, but they kinda have to since it s a novella Their fast love didn t really bother me, and I enjoyed seeing them flirt back and forth But it soon heated up even , and had a lot of hot, steamy, singe worthy sex scenes You may never look at Salsa the same again There was a lot of characters mentioned, and I m not really sure how they added to the story But, Dolly, who Julia was staying with till she finds a place and owns the local bar was a great, fun character She added a lot to this short story Smolder 4 StarsSmolder is the story of Marcus and Rayna Rayna walked out on Marcus and their marriage five years ago Leaving town, she s only now returned because of her grandma s illness and a fire at her grandma s house Marcus is not only works with the volunteer fire department, but he now works at the construction company that is fixing her grandma s home Still angry and hurt at Rayna, Marcus doesn t know what to expect when his ex wife shows back up in town Rayna still wants to run, but the two cannot deny the heat and past emotions that swirl between them.I enjoyed this story a bitthan Singe It flowed well, I didn t feel overwhelm with the characters And the best part about Marcus and Rayna was that they had history Even though it was rocky, it was great to see the simmering passion between the two The sex in Smolder was just as steamy as Singe, covering multiple chapters of moments Also, Smolder had a draw of mystery, because the reason why Rayna left isn t mentioned till the end I kept trying to figure it out through the whole book Smolder gave a better look into the fire department with the men answering a call I enjoyed this even though it was short, and found it realistic.Spark 3 StarsTalia and Dylan both volunteer together at the local fire department Talia has had a crush on Dylan since she started there, and even though Dylan realizes this and has feelings for Talia he refuses to act on them Then a night of passion finally forces the two to confront their feelings Dylan says they can never work, which leaves Talia to hatch a plan that proves that they can.Spark finally delivers in full what the other two lacked I loved seeing the whole fire department interact with each other for multiple chapters This was what I was expectingof when picking up a fireman book I wanted to the relationships within the department, and Spark delivers with some of these moments There is still a lot of characters running around and making appearances, that I wasn t sure how they exactly fit into the story It didn t bother me as much though since it was at community gathering More so though, it was great seeing appearance by Marcus and Rayna.Spark has a nice build, but the so called spark between Talia and Dylan didn t flow as smooth as the previous two Well the author still delivers a lot of steam, it didn t provide the same punch as the first novellas Steam aside, Talia and Dylan have a great plot line and story And Spark would be my second favorite in the book OverallOverall, I enjoyed these short novellas I wish I could have seen a bigger theme running through and interconnecting the three of them However, the small nods here and there were nice The sex as the title says was SMOKIN HOT The actually scenes though were long and drawn out over multiple chapters with a lot of explicitly It was almost overdone, and I wished for a little less heat and littlebuild The characters, especially Marcus, Stephen, Dolly, and Talia will win you over If you love firefighters, give this book a chanceThanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review

    I ve read LaFleur in the past and have enjoyed her work for the most part Unlike a lot of anthologies where we experience different authors works, this is all LaFleur and reads as a follow up to her Men with Tools series I didn t read any of that series, so I can t compare either characters or plot Unfortunately for me, all three stories in this book areabout the sex than the romance because I didn t see romance in any of them SingeThis was my least favorite story in the series Juli I ve read LaFleur in the past and have enjoyed her work for the most part Unlike a lot of anthologies where we experience different authors works, this is all LaFleur and reads as a follow up to her Men with Tools series I didn t read any of that series, so I can t compare either characters or plot Unfortunately for me, all three stories in this book areabout the sex than the romance because I didn t see romance in any of them SingeThis was my least favorite story in the series Julia Woods had just arrived to town She s recently made the move from California where she broke up with her ex boyfriend the prior month As she s new to the small town, Julia s staying with her mother s friend until she can secure a job and get her own place Stephen McGettis is a roofer and volunteer firefighter Once he sees Julia and her breasts, he s captivated by her beauty I think I might have laughed out loud with the focus that both Julia and Stephen had on her breasts.On her first day in town, Julia sees then meets Stephen and it s not soon after that they re on their first date Julia misses the sex that she had with her ex and Stephen seems like a good candidate It seems that Julia s attracted to guys who likes the fast life But she doesn t want to be because she s afraid that she s going to be hurt when anyone of the dare devil adventure sports that her current partner participates in either injures or kills him What s funny to me with Julia is that she was so focused on the sex, she forget to get to know the guy she s going to bed with I had no sympathy for her when she found out what Stephen did in his spare time I didn t feel any of the attraction between these two Stephen didn t have much of a voice and he didn t start showing a back bone until the last couple pages This story absolutely didn t work for me the sex was too fast and too much without any credible plot Like all readers, I would like at least a modicum of plot with my erotica Rating C D SmolderMy favorite in the stories, this is the story of Rayna and Marcus Holt Rayna walked out on Marcus five years ago after a tragedy that rocked their lives and their marriage Rayna is back in town to take care of her grandmother after she has a heart incident and is hospitalized This is coincidental to a fire that ravages the community and Marcus is one of the volunteer firefighters that battles the blaze During the fire he s injured and while at the hospital tending to his injury he sees Rayna for the first time since she left him These two worked most likely because they history and knowledge of each other As I m not a fan of the quick wham bam that history went a long way with me Their chemistry was there, maybe because we get both Marcus and Rayna s stories separately and their thoughts and actions are well plotted The sex was good but apparently in this town, everyone likes scratching and perky versus non perky breast What I didn t accept was Rayna s explanation for her departure and I think that Marcus should have pushed harder on that because I could see that happening again when the going gets tough I really enjoyed Rayna s grandmother and their relationship, there s a lot of knowledge to be had and gained from their interactions Rating BSparkTalia King moved to town two years earlier and has been in love with volunteer firefighter Dylan Westfield just as long Dylan has had a thing for Talia for the same amount of time but until now he s been unwilling to act Talia has been asking Dylan to go out with her and he s been turning her down every single time I actually felt sorry for Talia for being in love with someone who clearly didn t want anything to do with her in a romantic setting I honestly didn t understand why she kept trying and didn t move on instead I m not saying go to bed with the town man whore but at least realize where you re not wanted Dylan s excuse for not pursuing a relationship with Talia hadholes that swiss cheese It was just plain silly But the way they has sex for the first time was laughable, there s alcohol and a fire truck so cliche and forced Their chemistry was lacking and I didn t feel their love that I should have Even with their previous history, I never saw what they loved about each other because they clearly didn t know each other very well Rating C Happy Reading folks Overall Rating C ARC provided by publisher via NetGalleyReview also posted at www.redhotbooks.com
