#Review -Caught in the Flames by @KaceySheabooks

Susi Reviews Caught in the Flames

by Kacey Shea

b1271-cif_frontcover_lores

 

Callie Gordon is more than a little obsessed…

I love firemen.

Heroic. Selfless. Brave.

Not to mention the uniform with those damn sexy pants…I can’t get enough.

Imagine my surprise when local fire captain, Chase Matthews, wanders into my yard on moving day. I’ve hit real estate gold. Hot as sin with that all-knowing smirk creates an instant spark. Welcome to the neighborhood never looked so good.

But dating a firefighter isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Chase keeps me at distance even when I attempt to break down his walls. A friendship with the nosy eccentric woman down the street reveals there’s more to Chase than he’s willing to share. I’m playing with fire and bound to get burned.

Secrets unfold.

Truths are brought to light.

Can I handle the heat? Or will my love for this man prove that sometimes even good girls have to burn down the house?

Caught in the Flames is a standalone contemporary romance and intended for adult readers due to explicit content.

Firefighters… another man in uniform that brings me to my knees. I have to start off by telling you that this is my favorite of all of Kacey Shea’s books. I have had the pleasure of reading her first series, Uncovering Love.  That series was real, heartwarming, sexy and enjoyable.  But this book, it totally rocked!

As a reader, I have enjoyed watching Kacey’s talent as a writer flourish.  This standalone hooked me from the start.

Callie, the female lead is an awesome, independent and caring young woman.  She is one character I really enjoyed reading about.  She wants to find love and loves firefighters. Yeah, I totally understand her predicament.  She even lives near the fire station.  Convenient, eh?  She is surrounded by two amazing, funny and wonderful friends, Jill and Alicia.  They are the ones that help keep her balanced.  All of these women are well written and perfectly scripted into this book keeping the story light, entertaining and fun.

Callie loves chocolate and she meets this gorgeous firefighter named Chase with the rich chocolate colored eyes.  Everything about him is pretty damn perfect. Longing for an ideal relationship, Chase seems to fit the bill until trust issues arise.  (No spoilers)

Callie also meets a new woman in her neighborhood.  Kiki, the cat lady who seems to lose her cat Silas often, winds up becoming one her best friends. Her years, wisdom, mutual love for firefighters and advice, prove to be priceless for Callie.

Then there is Ash.  Oh Ash. I have such a soft spot for this other firefighter hottie.  Don’t be fooled by his full name, Ashley or his choice of cars.  Ash turns out to be quite the man in this story.  Sorry, but you’ll have to read the book to meet Ash.

There is jealousy, a little bit of crazy, and plenty of laugh out loud dialogue to keep you reading this book in one sitting.  The sexual innuendos between Chase and Callie made me giggle and enjoy those initial moments between the characters.  And the sex, well… it is hot!

Just when I thought the story was going in one direction, Kacey totally changed it up and I am so glad she did.

I won’t spoil this review for you if you haven’t read this book yet.  But, Caught in the Flames is a brilliant grab some wine and read in one sitting book.

I gave this book 5 stars!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis

A badass ex-Special Ops officer and a smartass hacker fight a dangerous enemy…and a blistering attraction to each other.

Connor Hughes is an ex-special ops officer, CEO of Metrix Security, and bonafide badass. His private security firm is renowned for its effectiveness. He’s renowned for his lethal precision and iron self-control. But when the former Marine meets a gorgeous young hacker with a mouth as smart as her brain, his control unravels in ways he never could have predicted.

Tabby amuses herself by outwitting the most secure technology systems on the planet. Known in hacker circles as Polaroid due to her photographic memory, she’s as secretive as she is accustomed to working alone. So when Connor decides she’s the only one who can help him catch a cyber criminal intent on taking down one of his clients, she tells him exactly where he can stick it.

But when the cyber criminal turns out to be the Hannibal Lecter of computer crime—and a dark presence from Tabby’s past—Tabby and Connor are drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. They quickly find themselves fighting not only their common enemy, but also an explosive desire that threatens to consume them.

When the stakes are this high and the game this deadly, will falling in love be the most dangerous move of all?

Excerpt

For a moment Connor just examines my face in silence. There’s a strange tension in him, a stillness, like a held breath but in his entire body. Then he abruptly swings around in his seat so he’s facing me, his massive thighs on either side of my bar stool, his booted feet planted on the floor.
Trapping me.
“What do you think you’re doing?” I ask, my voice high with panic.
“Got something to say to you. It’s important, so don’t talk until the end.”
He looks dangerously intense. His dark eyes are heated, drilling into mine. His cheeks are flushed from the fire, or from something else, but I don’t have time to think about what that something else might be because he opens his mouth and starts to speak, and my brain faints dead away, leaving me to fend for myself.
“I want you. Bad. Don’t know exactly why, you’re a complete pain in my ass and pretty much the most contrary, foul-tempered woman I’ve ever met, and you’ve made it really clear what you think about me, but every time I look at you I have an almost overpowering urge to touch you, kiss you, do a lot of bad things to you, and I don’t know how to manage it. Yeah, it might be more prudent for me to keep this shit to myself, but I know that when you don’t talk about shit it festers, gets worse, and if the way I feel about you gets any worse I won’t be able to put my goddamn shoes on in the morning. So I’m putting it out there.”
He takes a breath. Deeply shocked, I stare at him with my mouth open, my heart up in my throat.
“We’re both professionals. We have a job to do. And I don’t mix business with pleasure. Ever. But the way I figure it, we’ve got one more night until the work actually starts, and if I don’t do something to get you straight in my head I won’t be able to do the job at all.”
He stops abruptly. Then he waits, watching me with unwavering intensity as I attempt to digest what just happened.
I whisper in disbelief, “You’re propositioning me?”
His gaze drops to my lips. When he looks back into my eyes, his own are burning. “You liked that kiss.”
He gives me time to deny it, but I don’t. How could I? We both know I’d be lying.
He adds, “And you called me hot, so I know you don’t think I’m a complete troll, even though you act like you do.”
“That was an accident.”
“Yep.” He nods. “And you fuckin’ hated yourself for it. Which is why I know it was true.”
Things are happening in my body. My nipples harden, my breath quickens, there is a distinctive throb and ache between my legs. All because this jarhead I hate just told me he wants to do bad things to me.
Bad things. Dear God, were any two sexier words ever spoken?

 

 

 

#NewRelease -The Revenger by Debra Anastasia @Debra_Anastasia

The Revenger

The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him.

Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.

The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.

I’m Savvy Raine.

I used to be a wife.

I used to be a mother.

Now I am the Revenger.

 

Abstract vintage background


Excerpt

There was very little chatter after the alarming phone call. Savvy looked at the clock. It was only five, but the extra help Tallow had enlisted acted like she was about to disintegrate. When they were finally done, they hung Savvy’s costume from a door, fully expecting her to drop trou in front of all the strangers.

She looked at the silver outfit meant to demean her and classify her as his, just like all his other favorites.

“Yeah, I’m not actually going to be wearing that.” She looked from one shocked person to the other.

Tallow recovered first. “But this is what he told you to wear!”

Savvy laughed hollowly. “Yeah, he can suck his own d*ck for all I care.”

The atmosphere changed. The others now realized Savvy didn’t think it was a huge honor to be a f*ckhole.

“That’s not acceptable. I’ll put you in it myself if I have to, but you’re leaving here in that outfit.” Tallow bravely gathered up the skirt and came into Savvy’s personal space. He obviously thought she was just a regular girl.

In an instant she’d lifted Tallow into the air by his neck. “I’m not wearing it.” She stared him down until he began to turn blue. Then she set him back on his feet.

Tallow was a quick learner and smoothed his fancy shirt. “Okay then, let me see what else we have.”

From the NYT Bestselling author of The Manhattanites series and for fans of such films as Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Wild Things comes a ménage romance posing the question; can two men share the same woman forever?

They are the best of friends and the greatest of lovers. Two men and one woman, searching for fortune and fame, bound together by an eroticism their money and power can’t buy them. Luigi, the romantic alpha hunk. Rocco, the exotic bisexual. Jemma, the insatiable beauty who possesses them both.

From their first rendezvous in Milan, the three set out on a wicked course, jet-setting from the kinky underground sex clubs of Berlin, to the lavish palaces of Moscow, to New York’s high society in pursuit of pleasure. They have only each other to care for. That is…until a baby comes along and changes their destiny. But which of them is the father? And will they continue their poly relationship or give in to convention?

A Love Poem

 

I’LL…unease you, totally tease you

MEN…look at me, want to make love to me

WOMEN…want to be me, hate me Let’s not dance around the subject

YOU…may lust after me, maybe even marry me, I’ll carry your baby

HOW DID WE…veer this far left, get so fucked up

WE…started the relationship out so right, ended so wrong Let’s try again

PLEASE…warm my heart, try not to smash it, too Let’s mend our broken hearts

FLASHBACKS…to our passionate nights, to when you found me

AS LOVERS…we know no shame, we don’t place blame, we have this secret place in time

NEVER…hesitate to be the one, take my soul apart Let’s set our secrets free

FEELS LIKE…something so right, total submission and satisfaction

THESE DREAMS…like perfume on my wrist, are closer than this

YOU SAY…I’m crazy, that I’m in the danger zone Let’s open the door

I KNOW…I’m loving like never before, we belong together

MANY TIMES…I feel alone without you at my side, I speak of aberrant behavior

ARE YOU…hot tonight, feeling naughty I…want you, gotta have you

YOU ARE MY…devotion, lover

LET’S…be forever

Author Spotlight – Interview with Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers @annmarie_walker @amy_krogers

author interview banner

I am excited to share this interview with you today.  Thank you to Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers, authors of The Chasing Fire Series.  This is one series I highly recommend.  So, if you haven’t read it yet, get to it.  You will love it!  And, you will love Hudson D. Chase as well.  (winks)  The buy links are located at the end of the post.

 

My trip to Chicago over the summer was fantastic and one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much was because I got to visit many of the places mentioned in Remind Me, Release Me and the newly released Reclaim Me by Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers.  As a reader, I love visiting places my favorite characters have had memorable scenes in.  As I explored the city, I thought of some questions for this dynamic writing duo.  These questions sparked this interview.  Enjoy!

 

Susi:  I immediately noticed Hudson News when I landed at the Chicago O’Hare airport.  Of course, I blurted out the name Hudson and my husband told me to be quiet.   How did you come up with Hudson as the name for your delicious male protagonist? Chase?

hudson news image

 

 

Ann Marie: Choosing a character name is always hard but when you have to factor in two author’s opinions it’s even more difficult. After all, you can’t be writing a steamy scene about a character with the same name as an ex or a family member. We wanted our leading man to have a strong, two syllable first name and when we came across the name Hudson we both just knew it was right.

Amy: It was a while before we landed on a name. So for a while he was called Mr. Enigmatic or Mr. E. Finally, Hudson let us know what his name was and it seemed to fit. However, I do have a thing for strong and unique male names.

 

Susi:  I visited the famous Palmolive Building during one of my walking tours.  I stood in the entrance and even took a picture.  I would have gone in had it not been for a fussy man at my side.  Why did you choose this location as Hudson’s home?

palmolive building 2

Ann Marie: As the Chicagoan, it fell to me to choose locations for the books. Hudson’s residence was a no brainer. The Palmolive Building is not only one of the few locations in the city where no street address is needed, it was the original home of Playboy Headquarters as well as the location of the very first Playboy Club. When the building converted to residences, the three story penthouse was purchased by actor Vince Vaughn who restored Hugh Hefner’s office to its original condition.

Amy: Ann Marie and I also investigated the building as well. Okay, we may have stalked and tried to bribe our way in by making friends with the doorman. The building seemed perfect from the start. It’s strong, dark, and architecturally beautiful. Kind of starting to sound like our leading man himself.

 

Susi: Out of all of the cities, why was Chicago selected as the main setting for this series?

chicago skyline

Ann Marie: So many books are set in New York, and we wanted to do something different. I started tossing out Chicago settings and Amy was hooked.

Amy: Exactly what Ann Marie said. We wanted a completely different setting. Oh yeah, I love the city!

 

Susi:  Why was the name Alessandra Sinclair chosen?  I recall a street named St. Clair near my hotel and wondered if this had anything to do with “Sinclair.”

Ann Marie: Just a coincidence. We mainly wanted a name that could sound slightly pretentious while at the same time offered a nickname that reflected the girl she was with Hudson.

 

Susi:  I know the inspiration for Hudson was David Gandy.  And, sigh…. he is simply perfect.  

david gandy wow

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who was the inspiration for Allie?

For Harper?  For Nick?

Amy: We knew what Allie looked and to us she was an older Esti Ginzburg. However many of our readers have suggested Blake Lively. As for Harper, we clearly saw her as a feisty red head so Jane Levy seemed to fit her perfectly. For Nick we have a clear picture, literally, of the model. But we have no idea who he is.

 

 blake livelyjane levy

 

Susi:  Psst… I think I may have found Nick.  What do you think?

marlon teixera

 

 

Susi:  With so many amazing places to drink and dine, what made Tavern on Rush your location of choice for Allie and Harper to enjoy drink?  For the record, I had dinner there and it was a delicious experience.

tavern on rush

 

 

Ann Marie: I have always loved the bar at Tavern and with the cozy VIP area and the fabulous cocktails, it seemed the perfect location for Allie & Harper’s night out. Side note: The owners of Tavern hosted the REMIND ME launch party in April, even serving mini sucker punches in honor of the event!

Susi: Did you visit all of the places when writing the series?  Somehow I can picture Ann Marie jotting down details for the books.

Amy: Ann Marie sent me picture, after picture of every single location we mention in the books, which really gave me a clear picture of the venues. When I went out there after we have finished writing the first book we did what we now call the “Remind Me” Tour and I visited them all. It was a blast. Did I just date myself by using the word blast?

 

Susi:  Now for some questions on the writing process.  Had you written before, solo or as duo?

How do the two of you write?  I imagine lots of back and forth via email.  Did you outline the story first or just write?

Ann Marie: Amy and I spend a lot of time on the phone talking through ideas and brainstorming. When we write it’s in google docs so we can make changes and leave comments. Since we divide up the chapters, me writing Allie’s and Amy writing Hudson’s, we need to outline so we both know where the story is going…but don’t even get Amy started on my excel spreadsheets! haha.

 

Susi:  What obstacles did you encounter when writing this series?

Amy: For me the biggest challenge was time. I don’t think I’m alone with many authors who juggle careers (day jobs), family, kids and life.

 

Susi:  Did you ever imagine the series would be such a success?

Ann Marie: We have been overwhelmed by the response to Hudson and Allie’s story. From the tweets and facebook posts from all over the world, to the role play accounts and the fan sites, to the amazing support of bloggers like yourself, we are unbelievably grateful.

 

Susi:  When did you decide to become writers?

Ann Marie: I’ve always loved writing and worked for a newspaper a lifetime ago, but the idea to write a novel took root about seven years ago.

Amy: I’ve been writing since I was a kid, then even as an adult working on my craft as a screenwriter. I didn’t seriously consider writing a novel until Ann Marie said ‘Hey, let’s write a book.’ and I said ‘Okay.’

 

Susi:  Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?

Ann Marie: I’m more of a binge writer. Some authors can divide up their day but for me it’s more “all or nothing”.

Amy: For me it’s when I can, so many weekends I spend at my computer. And I’m much more of a method writer, I let the characters talk to me and guide me.

 

Susi:  Do you aim for a set amount of words/pages per day?

Ann Marie: Not really. I’m not much of a “sprinter”. I tend to write and edit as I go so while my daily word count might be low by some standards, it rarely requires a second pass.

Amy: I’m a write and don’t look back type. I let what’s happening in the scene/chapter guide me.

 

Susi:  What is the hardest thing about writing?

Ann Marie: Interruptions of daily life. Once I get into a groove, I hate being pulled out of it for laundry or cooking. Let’s just say that deadlines mean take out menus and dirty socks.

Amy: Interruptions of just life in general, especially when you’ve hit a wicked awesome groove.

 

Susi:  What is the easiest thing about writing?

Ann Marie: Plotting, at least with Amy. We love to play “what if” with our characters, especially over lemon drop martinis.

Amy:Plotting by far is the easiest. Ann Marie and I get going and it’s game on.

 

Susi:  How long did it take you to write each book?

Ann Marie:We wrote the first book at a slower pace but after the series sold we had delivery deadlines so book 2 & 3 were written in about 3 months each.

 

Susi:   Who are your favorite authors?

Ann Marie: Sylvia Day. Not only for her writing but for her overall career as well as the support she gives other authors and the way she interacts with her fans.

Amy: J.R. Ward “The Warden”. Her characters are magnificently developed, each with their own personality, even down to her “evil” characters. However, besides her writing she really takes the time to connect with her readers on a daily basis. And Like Ann Marie, I’m also an admirer of Sylvia Day.

 

Susi:  What book/s are you reading at present?

Ann Marie: I hate to admit it but I haven’t read a book in months! My kindle is packed with fabulous books but between the writing deadlines and launching 3 books in 6 months there hasn’t been much time.

Amy: Likewise, I haven’t read in way too long. My kindle is jammed with a TBR pile, but there hasn’t been much time.

Susi:  Is there another series in the works?

Ann Marie: We just might have a few surprises up our sleeves…stay tuned 🙂

 

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule ladies for this blog interview.

I am certainly looking forward to reading more of your writing in the future.

Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’

And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.

The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.

Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate.

No. That will never be me.

Because I’m completely imperfect.

And … I hate myself.

I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

Excerpt

“Are you nervous right now?”

I nod.

“Tell me why.”  His demand, steady and calm, gives me the courage I need to tell him.  To open a vein and bleed my insecurities.

“I’m not perfect,” I whisper.

“And neither am I, Willow.  I don’t want perfect.  What so many see as perfect, to me, is fake.  Perfect isn’t achievable naturally.  No one, and I mean no one, is perfect.”

I’m shaking my head before he’s even done speaking, but one long finger comes up and presses against my lips before I can speak.

“No, let me finish.  There isn’t beauty in perfection.  It’s as fake as the image the word projects.  Beauty is found in imperfection, Willow, because to admit you’re not perfect means you’re admitting you’re not whole and absolute.  When I think of myself, I see someone willing to admit he’s as far from complete as it gets because, in order to get to that perfection, I need to find the other part of me who will make my life better.  To take all the faults I have and fill them, and only then will I be there.  You see, the way I see it, the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”

When he stops, I swear I might have stopped breathing.  How am I supposed to respond to that?

“Do you trust me?” he asks, his voice strong and sure.

“Yes, Kane.  Nerves or not, I do.”

“Then let me show you what I see when I look at you.”

He brings his hands up, framing my face once again in a way I’m quickly becoming addicted to the feeling of.  His warm eyes implore, begging me without words to let him continue.  I do not intend to stop him, regardless of the butterflies currently taking over my system.  I’m all in.

About the Author – Harper Sloan

harper sloan author pic

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

 

 

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
