About SWEET FIRE:
Charlie Lane doesn’t have time for fairytales. Jesse Franklin might be handsome, and perhaps dangerously sexy, but she doesn’t have time.
Jesse finds Dr. Lane uptight and oh-so-professional, yet he can’t help but be drawn to her. He’d love to see her with her hair down—in more ways than one.
Charlie’s life is complicated. She’s taking care of her ailing mother and stumbling through a crash course in parenting a teenager. Her niece has spiky purple hair and an attitude for days. The last thing on Charlie’s mind is romance. Most especially not romance with her neighbor Jesse whose a hotshot firefighter and has the side effect of practically setting her on fire.
The first time Jesse sees Charlie with her guard down, he’s hooked. She’s brilliant, gorgeous, and challenges him in ways he never expected. He knows her life is complicated. He doesn’t do complicated. Or so he thought.
Jesse ends up surprising Charlie again and again. He’s much more than a hotshot firefighter who’s too handsome for his own good. She finds she just might want him to rescue her. Yet, she’s independent and has pieced together her small family’s life in the aftermath of painful, unexpected losses.
She finds herself falling for Jesse—hard. Passion burns hot and fast between them, threatening to burn her defenses to ash. All the while, she’s facing painful choices as she tries to take care of her mother and learn how to be a mother to a cranky teenager who tests her emotional limits daily. She’s not used to depending on anyone, much less believing in happily-ever-after.
Meanwhile, Jesse is fighting to prove to Charlie he can be the man she needs—when she doesn’t even believe she needs anyone’s help. Charlie fights against letting herself be vulnerable. All the while her heart is in so deep with Jesse, she doesn’t know how to protect herself.
Jesse’s strength is intoxicating, so much so, Charlie can’t help but fall a little harder for him.
FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
Aptly named Sweet Fire was a wonderfully sweet steamy read that I couldn’t put down! I definitely shouldn’t have started it right before bed, but to be fair I didn’t plan to stay up all night reading it. Worth it! This book has sweet, swoon, and feels in abundance! I couldn’t help but love every little bit of Jesse and Charlie’s story.
Jesse and Charlie both made it easy to fall in love with everything about them. Jesse’s confident and easygoing yet sweet ways paired perfectly with Charlie’s opposite of being wound tight and needing the freedom to just simply relax. With the weight of the world on her shoulders Charlie was so determined to do everything on her own. Jesse’s patient understanding, but still relentless drive to show her he was there no matter how many complications her life had completely melted my heart.
