My Review

This story is a five alarm blaze!

Part two of The Wedding From Hell brings us to the big day for Danny and Anne’s friend, Moose, and they’re having even more trouble battling the combustion between them.

On the one hand, Danny and Anne are in agreement, they wish there was a way to convince Moose he’s making a big mistake. Meanwhile, Anne is tired of fighting her attraction to a certain hot firefighter and gives in; on the condition it’s for one night only. She’s worked too hard for the respect of her fellow crew to blow it all on an affair.

Danny has been in love with Anne for what feels like forever. When she comes to him with a proposition, he can’t say no, but will it cost him the woman of his dreams?

This #free prequel to the big event- Consumed- coming out in October is a smart idea. As a reader, I’m now fully invested in these characters and can’t wait to see how it all plays out!

I give The Wedding From Hell Part 2: The Reception 5 lovely kisses: One HOT read!


Coming October 2.18



From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed…

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn’t believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again–until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm.
