Up In Flames by Jennifer Blackwood-Release Blitz

It takes one little spark for enemies to ignite into lovers in a searing-hot novel by USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackwood.

Sloane Garcia has butted heads with Reece Jenkins ever since he was a colossal jerk of epic proportions on a night she’d rather forget. So what if he’s overconfident, ultramasculine, and hard muscled? When she finds out he’s on the auction block at the annual firefighter’s charity event, she decides to give this cocky firefighter a dose of his own medicine. Now that she’s won the hunk, he’s on call—to do whatever Sloane wants.

Sure, Reece and Sloane had a rocky start, but he had his reasons. None of that matters now that he’s the bachelor at her beck and call, tasked with granting her four wishes in four weeks. He runs into burning buildings for a living, but nothing will be as tough as dousing the flames Sloane ignites in him. What started out as just a game might end up with Reece losing the one thing he swore he’d never give up: his heart. 

Reece and Sloane had all the elements to really make the story work: friends who had an attraction to one another, a messy past involving a rebuffed advance and great chemistry.

They also had a plot that was believable and an author I really enjoy.

So, why 3 stars? I'm going to be honest and say I really don't have that answer. I never connected with them or their story. I've thought about it, and other than the idea that he's dated (not totally positively) all of the nurses Sloane works with, there was nothing about this I can pinpoint as less than well done.

So, I'm going to say it's a little like mushrooms. I don't like them. I don't have any specific negative feelings or reasons...I would just rather not find them in my food.

In all seriousness, I'm sure this is just me and that everyone else will love this book and I'm going to get "what's wrong with you???" messages for this one.

Overall, I recommend this title. Enjoy it.
