Getting down and dirty in a limo with rocker Nate Lansford seems like the perfect solution. Plus, she's had a mad crush on him practically since birth. The only problem? Nate is her brother's best friend…and he doesn't see her as anything other than a surrogate little sister.

Bad boy rock star Nate Lansford had no plans to settle down. The only woman who makes him even consider it is his good friend, actress Lily MacIntyre. Too bad she's his best friend's twin sister and therefore absolutely off limits. The two of them have known one another since they were kids and have always protected and fought for each other. After an ill-fated kiss in the back of a limo, Nate hightails it out of there. He's not the kind of guy Lily needs. But when the pair find themselves as co-stars on the same TV show, the sparks are undeniable.
Making an agreement to "engage in a little lust-driven monkey sex to save our friendship," Nate and Lily give a big middle finger to all of the reasons they shouldn't be together and just go for it. They both expected the sex to be epic, and neither of them is shocked when one night isn't enough for either of them. But are their feelings genuine or is it all a PR game?
LIGHT MY FIRE by Kristina Knight is included in the Harlequin Contemporary Box Set, Volume 2 and is a great addition to the set! I really dug this book, a combination of fun and sensual and sexy with excellent characters in a Hollywood setting. They sound like the typical Tinsel Town couple—man-whore musician with gorgeous upcoming starlet. But their banter and obviously deep friendship and love was evident in every move they made and the chemistry was incredible. LIGHT MY FIRE also had some decadent sex scenes, making this last book in the box set a much desired treat.
I appreciated that this book didn't have the typical angsty misunderstandings and hurt feelings and massive struggle to overcome. This was a couple whose feelings were more than superficial and who was determined to keep their friendship intact regardless of how their sexual relationship played out. LIGHT MY FIRE was an excellent read and I'd love more of Lily and Nate in the future!
