Burn For Me by Lauren Blakely - Release Day Launch, Book Review, Giveaway

A sexy category romance novella from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

She's the one fire he can't put out...

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they've been friends. Yes, he's ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren't for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn't the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town--his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he's not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.

Be ready to get burn!

They were friends, and Jamie wasn’t so sure about crossing THAT thin line that separates friendship from love or lust. She didn’t want to lose him as a friend, but she was so sure that he wasn’t the man for her, or so she thinks. She was all about dating, wine-and-dine, courting, wooing, reading sonnets type of girl and he might be as sexy as hell – but he was a woman’s man. He was a firefighter with an extremely sexy, dirty mouth and talented fingers. They would end up disastrously if she decided to level up their friendship.

It took them ONE wild night to make her crave for more. But how can she possibly have him, and then preserve their friendship?

Smith had only eyes for his best friend, Jamie. But first, he needed to convince her that she was IT for him and they were in for the long haul. If only, she can see through his past, and trust him. When she offered a week of no-strings attached sex, it surprised him – but he took the bait, ready to show her that he can be the ONE for him too. He could be everything she needs, all she has to do was to trust him.

I like Smith, he is a great guy with a stable job, handsome face, sexy body, compassionate heart and very, very industrious. But you can’t blame Jamie for doubting him – her sister just got off from a bad divorce from a man similar to him. And looking at her parents who are completely together since they are enjoying the same things… Yet, Smith will do anything for her – he knows how to woo, in and out of bed, and he’s pretty sweet too. You can’t help but fall in love with him.

Jamie had trusts issues, but they have been friends prior. He had proved himself to her several times. She needed to lay down her trust, give him the chance, and admit that she’s head over heels in love with him as well before it’s too late… she might have done something to upset our guy, but she makes up pretty well in the ending. Her ‘grand gesture’ really brought a grin to my face. Ah, finally, she succumbs to the power of love. It’s about time!

Burn For Me is definitely a short, romantic and steamy read that will captivate Lauren Blakely’s readers and make them crave for more.

Ten minutes later, he opened the door and Jamie stood on his porch, the moonlight illuminating her. The faint glow of the half-light made her even prettier, her blond hair streaming down her back and over her shoulders. He was about to make a wisecrack about late-night visitors, but she pressed her lips against his in the sweetest kiss anyone had ever given him. In seconds, she’d disarmed him, and a groan escaped his throat. She brushed her lips lightly against his, kissing so softly it was as if she were barely there. But that’s what made her kiss so enticing; it was a promise of more.

They stood like that kissing—only kissing—for minutes, and soon he threaded his hands into her hair, savoring the soft feel of the strands on his rough fingers.

“Hi,” he said when she broke the kiss.

“Hi. I have a late-night delivery for you,” she said, and trailed her hands down his shirt. His breath caught in his throat as her fingers danced across his stomach, and she smiled as she traced the outline of his abs. He grabbed her arms gently but firmly, and pulled her into the house.

“Whatever delivery you have for me I don’t need the neighbors seeing,” he said.

The door was swinging shut as she claimed his mouth again. She kissed harder this time, sliding her tongue across his, searching his mouth as she laced her fingers through his. It was as if she were claiming him, and he wanted that.

“I’m sorry I was worried about Melody,” she said as she pulled away.

“Don’t even think twice about it. I kind of like how you want me all to yourself,” he said, running his finger along her cheek.

“I do. And I want to do something for you.”

He quirked an eyebrow in question.

“You’ve had a long shift. You work hard. And I want you to sleep well.”

“What do you have in mind?” he said, but whatever it was he was sure he’d like it, judging from the way hot tension started to roll through his veins, especially when she wedged herself between his legs, rubbing against his erection. He grabbed her hips, tugging her closer.

She looped her hands around his waist. “You have the sexiest back,” she said, and before he could respond, she’d dipped her hands below the waistband of his shorts, touching his bare ass. “Have I told you how much I love that you go commando?”

“You have not. Feel free to tell me now.”

“It is so hot,” she said, cupping his cheeks and squeezing. “You might have the best butt in the world.”
