The volunteer firefighters of Lanville, TX know how to heat things up in this three story anthology by Lynn LeFleur.
Eve Van Den Bergh sucks at relationships. After two failed engagements, she's got no desire to even date anymore. That is, until sexy school counselor Quade Easton starts asking her out. The two of them ignite a flame that burns hot and fast, but Eve's been burned before and isn't willing to risk her heart again. Can the charismatic volunteer firefighter make her believe in love again?
Although volunteer firefighter Paige Denslow has dated half of Lanville, she's still looking for her HEA. When her dream man rides into town in leather and chrome, Paige won't be denied. Colt Brennaman is only in town for a short time working undercover to find out who's robbing gas stations. He didn't expect to find love, but keeping Paige in the dark about his true identity could cause their burgeoning relationship to go up in flames.
Kirk Wilcox has been searching for that perfect person for a long time, but being so deeply in the closet makes it tough. When Joshua Stafford comes looking for a job at Wilcox Lumber, the two of them fall in lust immediately. But Kirk knows that Josh is only in town for a short time and wonders if it's worth finally coming out to his family for a man who won't stick around.
FLAMING HOT is an anthology of three stories featuring the men and women of the Lanville, TX Volunteer Fire Department. I really didn't care for the first two stories in this book, FIERY and FLARE. The chemistry simply wasn't there between any of the MC's and the sex was uncomfortable, awkward and forced.
In FIERY, the two wouldn't stop their completely inane dialogue during sex while the whole story of FLARE was inconsistent at best. At times it feels like Ms. LaFleur is using slang and dirty words simply for shock value that never comes. The writing feels gratuitous and not naturally flowing at all. I wouldn't give either of those stories more than a 2 rating, and that's being generous. I did enjoy FLASH, as the two MC's actually had some decent chemistry between them. Their sex scenes were well done and very erotic, though at times Ms. LaFleur tilted perilously close to crossing the "sexy" line into straight up smut. Alone, I would rate this story a 3.
As a whole, this is one threesome that I wouldn't recommend participating in, though there are spots of solid writing during FLASH that allows me to keep Ms. LaFleur on the "would read again" list.
