Author: Samanthe Beck

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He’ll show this good girl the thrill of being bad…

Good girl Melody Merritt is ready to be bad. Fresh out of an unsatisfying ten-year engagement to the town golden boy, she’s determined to make up for lost time. And who better to burn her sterling reputation to the ground than Bluelick’s sinfully sexy new fire chief whose wicked gaze promises complete and utter domination? Yes, please.

Corrupting the prim and proper Little Miss Bluelick is the most action Josh Bradley’s seen since he transferred from Cincinnati to fast-track his career. He won’t let anything or anyone—not even the delectable Melody Merritt—trap him in this Kentucky-fried Mayberry, but when their searing chemistry yields an unexpected result, he realizes he’s started a blaze that’s completely beyond his control…

Quick & Dirty: Sexy and steamy novel with two very adventurous adults. Light Her Fire is a little predictable but the story itself is heartwarming and playful.

Opening Sentence: You’ve hit a new low when the chance to eye-fuck Melody Merritt in Boone’s Market is what passes for excitement in your life.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Light Her Fire is a fun, sexy novel about Melody Merrritt and Josh Bradley. It is the second novel in the Private Pleasures series. Melody is a small town girl and she loves her little town of Bluelick. She also really likes the new fire chief in town. Josh is an ambitious firefighter and he really wants to work his way up the ladder *pun intended* by accepting the job as fire chief, hoping that it will lead to a job as fire chief in a bigger city.

Melody has just come off a ten-year engagement and of course is looking for a fun fling, not anything serious. She sees that Josh has eyes for her and so she decides to do something about it. Plus, it helps that he is great on the eyes too. Josh is impressed the blue eyed beauty just walks up to him boldly and asks him out but he is a little worried she is too good for his bad boy ways. He doesn’t have to worry much, Melody is tired of being the good girl so their initial fling happens really quick. A very funny interruption ensues and because of this Josh decides he wants to take Melody on a real date before they get to the fun stuff.

Melody and Josh have some really hot sex and foreplay. A lot of it happens in public. The sex on her front porch could only happen in a small town but since she lives in a neighborhood I don’t see how no one was at least looking out a window even if they weren’t driving by. They definitely seem to like the high of possibly getting caught.

Josh is a bad boy and he really likes his sex. He never hides his past from Melody but since he isn’t from her town, she doesn’t have previous knowledge of it. Josh definitely has an arrogance to his character but it is tied into his ambitions. He knows what he wants and he gets it. Even with his arrogance I really liked Josh, he didn’t lie about himself or what he wants from Melody.

Melody has always planned for her future with her high school sweetheart but when that didn’t pan out, she decides that she must do something for herself now. Her last ten years were wasted so a fling with Josh will help her do some of the things that she has missed out on. She is a fun girl and entirely devoted to her friends and family. I really enjoyed her bold and sexy way of asking out Josh.

One thing that is brought up a couple times by Melody’s friend is that in a relationship she must compromise but Melody never once gives in. That was a little frustrating but I understand that she did ten years of compromising with her previous relationship but she couldn’t even budge with Josh just a little bit.

The actual plot of the story was a little predictable and not entirely surprising. I don’t want to spoil anything but its not hard to figure out what will eventually happen because of one sexual encounter and the fact that Josh is a firefighter. Once again the sex was incredibly hot, but it kind of fizzles out for the last quarter of the book. I guess there were too many life altering choices happening for the characters to even think about sex.

I haven’t had the privilege of reading Private Practice yet, which is the first book in this series, but with the hilarious glimpses of the main characters during this book really have me wanting to pick up this book too.

Overall, it was a steamy, quick read. I really enjoyed this world and the interactions of the townsfolk in this tiny town. I will return to this series, especially if the next book is about Melody’s friend and “Wolverine”.

Notable Scene:

The sight greeting him on the other side of the open doorframe left him worse for wear in a whole different way. Melody stood there, blond hair tumbling down her shoulders in smooth waves. Her blue eyes danced with pleasure and something else he could only define as excitement. She’d wrapped her traffic-stopping body in one of those little sundresses that looked about as substantial as a butterfly’s wing and made a man thank God for eighty-degree heat and 90 percent humidity. The dress wasn’t particularly tight or short—the women he’d dated in Cincinnati routinely wore outfits consisting of half the fabric—but on her it was straight-up sexy. The pale pink shade should have looked innocent, like ballet slippers or cotton candy. But it wasn’t. Not on her.

The color made him think of her skin. The soft, hidden expanses not kissed by the sun. His mind filled with memories of her round, full breasts, her smooth, flat stomach…the peach-like curve of her ass. Raspberry-red high-heeled sandals strapped to her feet only intensified the effect by highlighting her slender calves and reminding him of another pink destination at the other end of those amazing legs.

He forced his eyes back up and stopped at her face. Her smile washed over him, and for the first time in weeks, the restless, hemmed-in feeling he’d gotten used to since moving to Kentucky backed off.
