About Hot for the Fireman:

 

Ex-Army Ranger Erik Grady lives for the job. So when his chief at the Boston Fire Department offers him two choices—mandated therapy for supposed PTSD or a permanent desk job at the station, he reluctantly agrees to see a shrink. Only this doctor is unlike anything he expected. Female and curved in all the right places? Check. Hotter than a four-alarm fire? Check. The kind of woman that can heat his blood in and out of bed? Check, check. And oh, yeah, he just happens to have first hand experience...

 

Of all the men to walk into psychologist Olivia Jones' office, why did it have to be him? Her one-night stand isn't playing by the rules of just. One. Night. She’s had her heart broken in the past, and no way is she going there again. And now he's blackmailing her into three dates? Well, if that's what it takes to make him see a different therapist, fine. She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She's a professional, damn it. She'll date Mr. I'm Too Sexy For My Bunker Pants. But it won’t end in the fun he expects.

 

It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…

“Unlock this door, gorgeous, or I’m breaking it down.”

 

Okay, screw payback, she’d waited for him long enough. She reached out, threw the deadbolt, and immediately hopped back when the door swung open like a gale-force wind was behind it. She was dimly aware of it being kicked shut, but most of her brainpower was totally focused on taking in the sight of the hottest thing she’d ever seen: Erik, standing in her neat little apartment, larger than life and fully dressed in his bunker gear.

 

Ho…ly…shit. She’d imagined him in his ranger kit before, certain it would melt her panties to see him geared up and ready for battle, but she never thought she’d find his turnout gear so damn sexy. He stood there, massive, like a first-responder god, dressed head to toe in bulky black attire striped with bands of reflective yellow. The coat hung open, revealing a tucked-in navy blue BFD T-shirt, and his helmet dangled from the fingertips of one hand.

 

“Why are you dressed like that?” she rasped through a suddenly dry throat.

 

“Training took for-fucking-ever.” Setting his helmet on the counter, he pulled his cell from a pocket and held it up before tossing it on the counter. “Totally dead, or I would’ve called. Couldn’t wait. Guys dropped me off.”

 

One of her favorite things about Erik was how well-spoken he was. As primal as his characteristics might be, he wasn’t a Neanderthal grunting his likes and dislikes in disjointed phrases. But tonight was obviously no ordinary night. Since walking through the door, he hadn’t uttered a single complete sentence, and his whiskey-colored eyes might as well be saying Me, Tarzan. You, Jane for all the civility she saw in them.

 

“The fuck are you wearing?” he asked, heat flickering in his eyes.

 

Unable to remember, she glanced down. Oh, right. “An oversize sleep shirt I’ve had for years.” She frowned, rethinking her choice. “Not the sexiest thing, I know.”

 

He’d said she shouldn’t wear anything she wanted intact, and this thing was a handful of washes away from dissolving into the ether. The white cotton shirt, which hit her at midthigh, was threadbare and transparent enough that the dusky rose color of her nipples showed through without the aid of special lighting, and the neck was so wide it was forever sliding off one shoulder or the other. Underneath, she wore a white lacey thong. She almost hadn’t worn any panties at all, but she couldn’t bring herself to be quite that bold.

 

“No,” he said, “it’s perfect.” Rolling his shoulders back, he shucked the heavy coat and tossed it over one of the kitchen bar stools, then advanced, ambling toward her…

REVIEW: BREAK THE RULES
Break the Rules (The Flanagan Sisters, #... Break the Rules (The Flanagan Sisters, #1) - Claire Boston

When I discovered that Claire Boston wrote this book, I silently wished that I would be able to get my hands on a copy. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that it was available for request through The Romance Review, I immediately jumped at the chance to get a copy for review. You are probably wondering why I was so excited. Well, after reading Into the Fire, which I enjoyed, I figured, especially after reading the synopsis, that this would a good read. It proved me right; I enjoyed every moment spent reading this installment. 


The premise is intriguing. The protagonists, Bridget and Jack, met in a nightclub. They immediately hit it off. Jack, after spending three years in Australia, recently returned to Texas, due to a lucrative job opportunity that he could not resist. Bridget is not in a good place. The promotion she was hoping for never materialised, and to add insult to injury, an outsider got the position over her. Having been burned by a previous relationship, she threw herself into her job, which proved to be a waste of time. Therefore, meeting Jack at a time when she felt unworthy seemed like the best thing that could have happened to her.

Bridget is a person who lived by the rules and she had specific ones when it came to dating--never sleep with a man on the first date and do not date a co-worker. When she met Jack she was willing to break the first rule, little did she know that this would lead to her breaking the second rule.

The characters are relatable and realistic. The issues are a replica of real life. Bridget is a responsible person who took life seriously. For her, it was all work and she hardly spent time having fun. She is caring, selfless, determined, industrious, dedicated and passionate. Jack is a lovable person. He liked and respected Bridget. He understood her fears and even though it did not help his case, he did not try to push her. However, keeping to her resolve was not easy as circumstances kept putting them together outside of the work environment. Compromise is the name of the game in this situation. Would breaking her rules bring happiness or will it end in heartache?

The dialogue between the characters is funny and engaging. I especially loved the dialogue between the protagonists as well as their interaction with their families. I did not particularly like Bridget's best friend. She is willing to manipulate anyone to get what she wants, it did not matter who got hurt in the process.

This is a beautiful love story loaded with lots of sexual tension due to its forbidden nature. The writing is solid; it held me captive throughout the entire story. I liked that it did not focus solely on the romance between Jack and Bridget. It spoke also to the discrimination that women face while working in an environment dominated by men and safety in the workplace. Sadly, these issues still plague our society, even after years of fighting for equality and the well-being of employees.

Verdict:
A great start to the series, and one which I recommend. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.

The Train Derails in Boston
The Train Derails in Boston - Jessica McHugh This one is fun for the whole family - Ghostly gangbangs, haunted mahjong tiles, eHow exorcisms and gallons of blood and Stoli raining down over the halls of Cherrywood Lodge. Nice.

A wild ride full of violence, disgrace, domination and indulgence. And no shortage of ghost cock. Yep, that's right. Ghost cock. Told you this was fun for the whole family.

[Rezension] Aurelia Velten - Gekittete Herzen (Boston Berserks 7)
Gekittete Herzen (Boston Berserks 7) - Aurelia Velten
Beschreibung:
Vor fünf Monaten floh Ella Rossi aus Boston – mit gebrochenem Herzen und allerhand Selbstzweifeln im Gepäck. Zu Hause warten nur ein Medienskandal und Freunde, die sie plötzlich verachten. Das hat man wohl davon, wenn man mit einem Profisportler wie Marc Dean zusammen ist. Obwohl er Mist gebaut hat, liegt die Schuld in den Augen aller bei Ella. 
Um ihr geliebtes Café weiterzuführen, kehrt sie schließlich zurück und muss schnell feststellen, dass sich ihr Leben komplett gewandelt hat. Manche Dinge ändern sich jedoch nie: Marc hat es sich in den Kopf gesetzt, alles wiedergutzumachen. 
Als seine Freunde Wind davon bekommen, was vor fünf Monaten wirklich passiert ist, stehen sie hinter Ella und machen Marc das Leben schwer. Einst hätte Ella das sicher nicht so sehr genossen, aber genau das ist es gerade – sowohl sie als auch Marc sind nicht mehr dieselben wie früher …
 
Details:
Taschenbuch: 352 Seiten
Verlag: Hippomonte; Auflage: 1 (31. März 2017)
Sprache: Deutsch
ISBN-10: 3946210074
ISBN-13: 978-3946210078
Größe: 12,1 x 3,5 x 18,7 cm
 
Eigene Meinung:
Das Cover zu Gekittete Herzen ist wirklich schön bunt und stimmig gestaltet, man sieht im Hintergrund eine schöne Häuserfront und eine angedeutete Strasse und Bäume. In Vordergrund sieht man eine Frau, die schon mal vorausläuft und den Leser an der Hand mitzieht, was wirklich mal ein anderes Cover ist, aber wirklich schön gemacht. 
Ella kommt nach Bosten zurück und ist voller Selbstzweifeln, weil das, was in der Vergangenheit passiert ist, hängt ihr immer noch sehr nach und auch ihre Freunde finden das Verhalten von Marc echt nicht okay und machen ihm das Leben schwer, aber Marc will eigentlich alles wieder gut machen, was aber nicht so einfach ist, weil da lief schon einiges schief...
Ella und Marc sind zwei Charaktere, die Aurelia Velten sehr vielschichtig präsentiert, Ella ist sehr zerbrechlich und voller Zweifel, die einfach durch das, was sie erlebt hat, noch verstärkt werden und trotzdem ist sie so warmherzig und so lieb, man schliesst sie einfach ins Herz. Marc hingegen war zunächst wirklich unsympathisch, aber das wird im Laufe des Buches immer besser und man merkt auch, dass sie einfach zusammen passen. Natürlich muss man auch sehen, dass sie die gemeinsame Vergangenheit verändert hat, den sie stehen zunächst einfach vor den Scherben einer grossen Liebe, die einfach nicht spurlos an einem Menschen oder besser Buchcharakter vorbei geht, was aber sowohl Ella wie auch Marc wirklich sehr nah am Leser und sehr authentisch macht. 
Aurelia Velten hat einen wirklich schönen Stil, die Seiten lesen sich einfach so weg, auch wenn man dann aus der Boston Berserks - Reihe bisher keinen Teil gelesen hat, da die Geschichte zwischen Ella und Marc trotz der Vergangenheit gut durchkommt und man da keine Problem mit anderen Teilen hat, die man vorher aus der Reihe nicht kannte. Aurelia Velten holt den Leser wahnsinnig ab und nimmt ihn mit in alle Emotionen, die sie in das Buch gepackt hat. 
 
Fazit:
Gekittete Herzen ist wirklich ein schöner Roman, den man auch unabhänigig von der Boston Berserks - Reihe lesen kann, da er in sich abgeschlossen ist. Durch die Spannung, die man schon aus dem Klappentext mitnimmt, die tollen Charaktere und den schönen fliessenden Stil von Aurelia Velten liest sich das Buch weg wie nichts und die etwas mehr als 350 Seiten fliegen nur so dahin, das man das Ende erst bemerkt, wenn die Seiten ausgehen und so sollte es bei einem Buch immer sein.

Hold me
Thank You For Holding (On Hold Book 2) - Julia Kent,Elisa Reed

This is the 2nd book in the On Hold series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Ryan has been in love with Carrie, since the first day they worked together.  She was dating someone else, so he waited patiently for his chance.  Now that it is here - he is afraid she will turn him down.

 

Carrie has been disgusted with her life lately.  First, her ex dumps her over the phone.  Then, she has to attend her best friends wedding, where her ex will be there with his new man.  Can she pretend her way out of this?

 

This book felt a little whiny.  I loved the characters.  I enjoyed the humor, heat, and pace of the story.  I was just very frustrated that the characters let so many things come before the love they supposedly have for one another.  Just my opinion.  I enjoyed the book overall.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
