Fired Up; Bayside Heroes #3

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This insta-attraction, with a dash of fate sprinkled in, is super cute and perfect for all romance lovers.

Asher is a hot EMT with a huge heart. He is completely swoon-worthy from start to finish. Then add in the single mom, Meadow, with her adorable son and this is probably the sweetest romance (with steamy hotness splashed about) that K.K. Allen has ever written.

Asher’s natural born instinct of serve and protect has been with him for a long time. Having served with the military and now with the fire department, his need to care for others runs strong. He is truly a nice guy, so when his first meet-cute moment goes the wrong way when he comes across Meadow at an accident, needless to say, he feels horrible later.

These two seem to be fated, because they not only meet at an accident, but they continue to run into one another multiple times and at different events. While Meadow isn’t set on meeting anyone new in her life, she has a child to raise, a new career to get off the ground, and her life to get sorted, but it’s really hard to say no to a man like Asher, especially when destiny has other plans for them.

Their meeting seems not only set by fate, but a second chance in the romance department for them both. Neither are masters in this field and both have loved and lost in this particular game before. Could they find happiness in each other’s arms or will the stakes prove to be too high?

This is a standalone in the Bayside Heroes series and while other Bayside characters pop up, it is not crucial to have read the other books to understand this plotline.

Synopsis:

Through smoke and fire, she’s all I see.

Nothing gives me a bigger rush than when I’m responding to an emergency call.
As a firefighter EMT, my mission has always been clear.
Until I arrive at the scene of an accident and a dark-haired vixen, quite literally, trips into my life.
I quickly learn there’s more to the gorgeous photographer than meets the eye.

Meadow Matthews isn’t a woman who needs saving, but she just might save me.
As a single mom to an adorable little boy, she leaves little time for play.
Which is why, when I approach her with a fun opportunity, she instantly declines.
Unfortunately, snapping photos of greased-up firefighters for a calendar isn’t her thing.

Lucky for us, she fires me up just enough to convince her otherwise.

Fired Up is a standalone single-parent medical romance in the Bayside Heroes world.

Blurb:

How far will they go to protect paradise…

From a very early age, I was warned to stay away from the Lawson brothers…

It didn’t matter they weren’t biological brothers or that one had been adopted on a guilt-driven whim. They considered one another family. They shared a bond like any other brothers would.

Except it ran much deeper.

Darker.

Dirtier.

They had all the power, money, and hunger capable of destroying anyone who stood in their way as they trained to become icons the world watched every four years bring home gold medals.

Little did anyone know, there was only one thing the legends worshipped more than their beloved sport.

Me.

*This is a forbidden, taboo, MMF, dark romance novel that includes several triggers

New Release – Loyalty in the Shadows by Veronica Eden

The bestselling Crowned Crows series from Veronica Eden continues with Book II, 𝙇𝙤𝙮𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙮 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙨. Ready to go deeper into the shadows of the dark city full of secrets and power? They say crows have a long memory. Never cross a crow.

𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒅𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒚.

𝑻𝒉𝒆𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒅𝒆𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏.

𝘐𝘴𝘭𝘢

Thorne Point sunk its claws in me at a young age.

I refused to let its harsh truths snuff out my light.

When an attempt to kidnap me is stopped, I know they’ll never give up.

The city’s seedy underbelly won’t let me escape forever.

My only choice is to run into the arms of monsters for safety.

The Crows have a terrifying reputation, and Levi Astor lives up to it.

But my protective monster will never be worse than the ones who buried their ugliness deep in me.

𝘓𝘦𝘷𝘪

𝘓𝘦𝘷𝘪 𝘈𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵.

Our unchallenged rule over this city is crumbling.

We’ll hunt down the ones behind this and make them pay.

𝘊𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘶𝘵, 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘶𝘵, 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦.

Guarding the senator’s daughter isn’t on my agenda, yet I couldn’t ignore her if I tried.

Sunshine might break through the shadows, but it will only illuminate what makes me a deadly monster.

Isla Vonn should run in the opposite direction instead of into my arms.

Because everyone fears the Leviathan in Thorne Point.
