Can past hurts be forgotten to make a future together?
Jaqueline Pennington once had the world at her feet, but she threw it all away for a man from the wrong side of the tracks—handsome, smart and the love of her life, Logan Forrester—only to find that she'd dropped everything for him to abandon her.
Logan wanted one thing out of life—to be with Jackie and give her the life she deserved. When that plan went to hell, he walked away and applied himself to becoming a prosperous security software engineer. A job that, years later, brings him back to Jackie.
They haven't seen or heard from each other since that fateful night, but the chemistry that still crackles between them is too good for either one to pass up. So Jackie and Logan reach an agreement and burn off the sexual tension, getting closure during their time in St. Lucia.
But what happens to their plans when the truth about their separation comes out? Can they get over the past to build a future?
Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of voyeurism.

I think I might be a masochist, since reading about a tropical locale when there's 4 inches of snow on the ground and no vaca in sight is dreadfully painful (but I loved every minute of it)!
Once upon a time, good girl Jaqueline Pennington was in love with bad boy Logan Forrester. Their love affair was on par with a fireworks detonation, but alas, their teenage hearts exploded just as intensely.
Fast forward to present day, and the once hot and heavy couple unexpectedly reunites on the beautiful island of St. Lucia for the wedding of mutual friends. Logan was heartbroken when Jackie left him, and now he has a chance to remind her what she gave up all those years ago. Jackie remembers their parting the other way around, Logan walking away from her and not looking back. Both agree to a vacation fling, but neither expect the strong emotions that threaten to crush them both. When the truth is revealed about their shared heartache, will either still be willing to give another shot at love?
I really enjoyed this second chance romance FUEL TO THE FIRE, part of the Totally Five Star series. The chemistry between Jackie and Logan was palpable, and add in the sexy and exotic locale, the romance of a wedding and the irresistible temptation of first love's reuniting, and FUEL TO THE FIRE becomes one steamy and sultry read! Logan and Jackie were both terrific characters and seemed made for one another, though it was frustrating that they kept putting off talking to one another in any serious way regarding their pasts. I wanted to smack Caroline, the bride, because Logan was right - she seemed to do everything she could to discourage his reunion with Jackie. That said, the anticipation of finding out what REALLY happened all those years ago held me glued to the pages and flipping furiously to find out.
The setting was stunning, and if there really are resorts out there that have aquariums built into a mountain, then sign me up! I felt like I was there with the couple, experiencing the sand between my toes, the oil-filled messages on my body, the decadent food on my tongue. Ms. Gamble did a fantastic job with FUEL TO THE FIRE, and I definitely want more of the Totally Five Star series!
Bottom Line: Sexy and sweet read that was frustrating and erotic and fun all rolled into one. Put this one in your TBR pile!
