4* Review: Pin-up Fireman – Vonnie Davis- Wild Heat#3

23261713Blurb - Coastal

Graci-ella Santana is hired to photograph and produce a calendar of the hunky firemen of Station Thirty-two. Gossip flourishes about the sexy lady behind the camera… and her hands on approach to bring out every man’s best assets! Why, the firemen are practically falling over each other to be the next one posed to her satisfaction.

Boyd Calloway’s having none of it. He’s in the midst of a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife. The last thing he needs is to provide the drug-dealing ex’s unsavory lawyer with a calendar filled with suggestive photographs that might prove Boyd an unfit example to his son.

When the Captain at the station insists Boyd participate in the shoot, passion explodes between him and Graci-ella to a degree neither is ready or equipped to handle. She can’t commit. He can’t trust. Yet, neither can walk away from the other.

Only, Boyd soon finds out that to get the evidence he needs to convict his ex and safeguard his child, he has to ask the last person he wants to for help. And Graci-ella has no choice but to come to the rescue of her one hot hero.

My Review - Coastal

Pin-up Fireman (Wild Heat, #3)There is a definite sizzle, when Graci-ella visits fire station 32 and meets Boyd and the sexual tension grows with each encounter. As with the other books in the ‘Wild Heat’ series, the joking and taunting between the fire fighters is realistic and often humorous, which is why the newest recruit Darryl, stands out and not in a good way.

There is a lot going on in this story and the pacing is fast but the growing passion between Graci-ella and Boyd is worth reading the story for, alone. Aside from this, there’s a custody battle for a Boyd’s charming son, a conflict of interest and a thread of menace that darkens as the story progresses and makes for a powerful ending. You definitely won’t get bored reading this.

The main characters’ development is interesting, as they deal with their emotional baggage and try to build something real between them. The ‘Pin- up Fireman’ calendar photo shoot’ lightens the mood and the vivid imagery, makes you want to see the finished product.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

4* Review: How to Seduce a Fireman (Wild Heat #1) – Vonnie Davis

23347758BLURBCassie Wolford has crushed on fireman Quinn Gallagher ever since he moved to Clearwater three years ago. There’s just one problem: he’s always made it clear dating is out of the question. But once a Wolford sets their sights on someone, that person doesn’t stand a chance! Cassie decides it’s time for Quinn to get a dose of his own medicine… and sets out to show him what he’s missing!

Quinn knows only too well what Cassie’s up to but he can’t give her what she wants. He isn’t good for anyone, much less someone as sweet as his angel. Fighting her off hurts like hell, but giving her false hope of a happy ever after would be damn cruel. That’s why he has to leave Clearwater.

Unfortunately, someone from his past has different ideas and when Cassie’s life is threatened this former CIA operative is staying put, prepared to crawl through hell and back to keep her safe. And it looks like he might just have to.

My Review -1How to Seduce a Fireman: HarperImpulse Contemporary Romance

I enjoyed the seasonal prequel to this sexy fireman story ‘Santa Wore Leathers’ and this story featuring Cassie the baby of the family and Quinn is an interesting read. Einstein the charismatic dog makes a cameo appearance but the animal star is Furball the stray cat adopted by Quinn who provides the comic relief and shows a softer side to Quinn.

Cassie turns twenty one and Quinn misses her party. Tired of being ignored Cassie sets out to prove to Quinn, she is the woman of his dreams. Quinn’s hidden past means he is unable and unwilling to commit to Cassie, even though he loves her as a friend.

Quinn is a fireman with a past, which forms the basis of the story and proves a major obstacle to admitting he loves Cassie. The initial few chapters are light-hearted and full of sexual tension. The culmination is a steamy encounter between Cassie and Quinn. The heat level of this romance borders on erotic. When Quinn’s past threatens his future with Cassie, he abandons his plans to leave her and the story becomes darker and edgy.

This story is a dichotomy; sexy romance versus family values. Humour versus violence, poignancy versus action. The ending is a realistic happy for now for Cassie and Quinn but some questions remain unanswered, to entice you to read the next in the series.

4* Review: Santa Wore Leathers – Vonnie Davis

Continuing my out of season reviews  with this gem from Vonnie Davis a delightful read.

 Take one man-shy reporter, a gorgeous ex-Navy SEAL turned firefighter, add in a thong-stealing dog… and Christmas will never be the same again!

There’s only one thing on Becca Sinclair’s Christmas list this holiday season – her very own column in the local paper. And if she can build a huge blog following, her wish just might come true.

Enter Dan ‘Wolf’ Wolford aka the man-whore next door and the new star of Becca’s popular, post-divorce blog about men. A Navy SEAL turned commander of the Florida Marine Rescue Unit, Wolf’s the very definition of the word alpha – and with an endless rotation of women on his doorstep, this hunk on a Harley has Becca and her female followers all hot and bothered!

All Becca wants for Christmas is her newspaper column, right? But when she finds herself the target of Wolf’s irresistible attentions, her snarky comebacks become less and less convincing and, suddenly, she’s not so sure anymore…

My Review

Santa Wore LeathersThe title and cover of ‘Santa Wore Leathers’ drew me right into this book even though I read it out of season.
Becca, a reporter still hurting from her failed marriage uses her witty blog to further her career. The current subject is her new neighbour an undoubtedly sexy man with the morals of an alley cat. Einstein her lovable German Shepherd dog is a delight. His penchant for stealing Becca’s sexy underwear and notable matchmaking skills appeals to all the doggy lovers like me.
When Becca meets Dan a.k.a. Wolf she feels an instant attraction but is unwilling to set herself up for another fall. Dan is smitten and determined to charm her into his bed. Misunderstandings and interventions from senior neighbours all add to the humour and complexity of this love story.
This not a traditional Christmas romance, the sentiment and goodwill attached to the season are interwoven into the storyline but the powerful interplay between Becca and Wolf as they learn to trust takes centre stage. The plot and characters are well developed and it reads more like a novel than a novella.
‘Santa Wore Leathers’ is a sexy, feel good romance. A recommended read whatever the season.
