Attending Boston University was something we were supposed to do together, until Shaw Masters, my brother’s best friend, broke my heart and chased our dream without me. 
Choosing bromance over romance, Shaw is now living his best life, playing hockey for the Boston Terriers while I’ve wasted a year letting my shattered heart rob me of my future.
 
But not anymore. 
 
Now, also attending B.U., I’m determined to forget he exists. 
 
Who cares if he’s everywhere I turn with his familiar, lingering gaze drawing me in? 
 
Who cares if his presence stirs up old feelings best forgotten?
 
He might be the goalie, but it’s my turn to block him from gliding back into my heart.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Blocked (Boston Terriers Hockey, #3)Blocked by Jacob Chance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Boston Terriers Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this fun series in order intended.

Maddie is finally done with high school and on to the rest of her life. A life she has been waiting and hoping for. Along with Shaw giving her a chance at a future, anyway. Only he has no idea.

Shaw has been feeling something new for Maddie for a while. Not really sure how to approach it, he wants to feel her out without her overprotective brother in the way. Little does he know how poetic those thoughts are going to be.

The series continues with the latest couple being my new favorite. I love how their friendship builds with somewhat ease. They were already connected, so it was only a matter of time. The characters were a pleasure to read. I was rooting for them right from the very start.

Audiobook Review: Controlled Burn (Boston Fire #2) by Shannon Stacey (Narrator: Tatiana Sokolov)
Controlled Burn (Boston Fire) - Shannon Stacey

 Controlled Burn
 Boston Fire #2
 Shannon Stacey (Narrator: Tatiana Sokolov)
 Contemporary Romance
 Harlequin Audio

Rick Gullotti lives the good life. He fights fires, dates beautiful women - though none long enough so she casts wistful glances at jewelry stores - and has great friends. And thanks to helping out the elderly couple who own his building, his rent is low. But when concerns about their health lead him to contact their only son, his life starts getting away from him.

 

Jessica Broussard has no interest in leaving sunny San Diego or her cushy corner office for Boston, but her father - who happens to be her boss - dispatches her to deal with the grandparents she's never met. She's unprepared for the frigid winter, loving relatives who aren't the monsters she's been led to believe, and the hot, scruffy firefighter who lives upstairs.

 

At first Jessica is determined to get back to her comfortable life as quickly as possible. All she has to do is talk her grandparents into selling their monstrosity of a house and moving to a retirement community. But she underestimates Rick's dedication - and his considerable charm. Nobody's taking advantage of his friends on his watch, even if that makes the tempting Southern California girl with the long legs his adversary. Unfortunately for them both, the only thing more urgent than the matter at hand is their sizzling chemistry, and it's quickly becoming too strong to resist.

Sexy Yummy Firefighters!!

 

Controlled Burn is book two in the Boston Fire series by Shannon Stacey and narrated by Tatiana Sokolov. 

 

I relished this audiobook. It’s a sweet light-hearted romance with almost no drama. This novel worked for me on so many levels. It’s easy and fun, but I really liked was the mature romance in that our leads are in their late 30’s early 40’s. 

 

Jessica is a VP of Financial Services at her father’s company. She’s never meet her grandparents on her fathers side. For some reason her father cut them out of his life and hers. After receiving a call from her grandfathers doctor she decides to go meet them and help them out, but her plans and life soon change once she meets them and their tenant Rick.

 

Rick is our sexy firefighter and such a sweet man. He’s taken such good care of the Brussard’s that he’s pretty much family. The son they never had. He looks out for them and makes sure their property is taken care of. 

 

I adored Rick and Jessica. They are likable, relatable, realistic, kind and down to earth. You can tell at the beginning that they don’t trust each others motives, but as time moves along they see that both want what’s best for the elderly couple. 

 

As for the romance. It’s a nice sweet build up with lots of sexual tension, flirting, and stolen kisses. They both fight this attraction and they keep thinking how can this work when they live miles away.

 

The only complaint I have is the end. It just ends and left me with some question’s. 

 

Narration: Tatiana Sokolov did a superb job in her narration. All the voices where distinctive and she brought out the romance and realistic life of our characters.

 

Controlled Burn was a feel good romance. I can’t wait to listen on in the Boston Fire series. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars
