Publisher's Summary

Hear the book New York Times bestselling author Whitney G. called "a sexy, fast-paced read that'll leave you hot, panting, and completely captivated!”

Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he's found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he discovers the woman he wants back in his bed is his best friend's sister, everything comes to a halt.

Megan Jansen has one rule - no firemen. Just out of a toxic relationship, she's only in Hidden Oaks long enough to visit her brother and photograph the local calendar before she slips off on another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he's her brother's friend...and a fireman. She knows she's going to get burned, but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.

Wow

This was a great read. Loved the characters, the scene to begin the story just reels you in. That they both changed their paths for each other just brilliant.
Narration was awesome too.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I'm pretty sure I read this book years ago but when the audio was released I knew I had to listen since Lauren Blakely has the best taste in narrators. I love firefighters in my romance books.
Becker & Megan have the hottest chemistry and they spend most of this book trying to deny it which just makes it even better. This book had an emotion side to it along with the sexy side. Becker has some demons that he's working through and Megan has really only 1 rule and that is no Firefighters. When these two meet they have a great instant connection which I enjoyed very much. I never realized that Lauren Blakley was ALWAYS good at low drama romance, I really thought this would be high drama since it's from early in her career but nope, there is a little but not the drawn out kind that authors add just to give the story drama. I know I say this in every Lauren Blakely book review but I LOVE low drama romance, therefor I love Lauren Blakely books!

The narration was great, Joe Arden & Erin Mallon are both amazing narrators so I knew going in that they would bring these characters to life perfectly.

The Heart is a Fearless Creature

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did a fantastic job narrating this sexy and heartfelt best friend's little sister romance. Though this is book 2 in the series, I had no problem enjoying Becker and Megan's story (even though I have not read/listened to book 1).

The chemistry between fire captain/bar owner Becker and photographer/artist Megan was scorching hot! Becker and Megan both have some heavy baggage that has been influencing their choices and holding them back emotionally, but in each other they find understanding and comfort. They meet a bit unconventionally and things start off hot and heavy right from the start. Even though it's mutual attraction and lust that bring them together initially, it's their honesty and vulnerability that turn things into so much more. The push and pull between them as they try to deny their feelings was fantastic and I loved seeing all their walls come crashing down. I also appreciated that the angst and drama weren't over the top and that both Megan and Becker are all in once things get going. I felt their fears and concerns were realistic and understandable given their histories. Yes, some mistakes are made along the way, but overall, they communicated openly and honestly with each other and there was no mincing words.

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon made this a really enjoyable listen and I felt Joe Arden especially was amazing as Becker, striking the perfect balance of sweet and gentle as well as commanding and sexy. I think I'm so used to hearing Erin Mallon in more comedic roles, it took me a bit to really feel her as Megan. She was just the right amount of quirky, but sometimes during the more serious moments I had a hard time connecting. The performances were still superb, however, and you really can't go wrong with these narrators. Fans of Lauren Blakely are sure to enjoy this one!

Broken souls healing each other

There is something about a firefighter romance that is so appealing and Lauren Blakely heats it up with Becker and Megan. These two meet as a one night stand, but soon find out that Megan is the sister of Becker's best friend. Now destined to be apart, these two fight their attraction until they can't. Both Becker and Megan have walls around their hearts, but will they find a way to break them down? These two are a breath of fresh air. Becker owns a bar and is the captain of the fire department. He has sworn off relationships, so when Megan comes along, he is no where near ready for her. His resolve is strong, his history keeping him from being loved. Can Megan squeeze her way into his heart? Megan has problems with men in dangerous jobs. Will she be able to see past the danger and love the man? These two have their work cut out for them, but together, anything is possible. The ending is so perfect, I can see why Megan would "Melt for Him".!

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon are a team that can do no wrong! These two bring the characters to life with such real emotion, it's impossible not to get drawn in. Each feeling and touch is so well performed, it's like we are watching it happen and experiencing the story with Becker and Megan. I love their narration!

This is a hot one!!

I originally read this book back in 2014. I loved it then, and I love the audiobook even more w/Joe Arden and Erin Mallon bringing Becker and Megan to life. The chemistry between them from the moment they meet is instant, and it gets better as the book goes on. Both of them cautious because of past experiences, neither wants to embark on a relationship. They both feel all they can offer is a shallow, physical (and scorching hot), and brief moment in time. To their surprise, they’re both what each other needs to help heal their painful pasts.

I loved the strong sense of family w/this story, both by blood and by sharing a dangerous profession. I could listen to this audiobook over and over, and I probably will. Great listen!

Sexy, sweet firefighter romance! Perfect narration.

I love firefighters. Talk about sizzle and heat! Lauren Blakely gave me everything I loved wrapped up in six hours of delicious audiobook goodness!

-insta lust
-best friend’s little sister
-firefighter
-great banter
-sweet and sexy hero
-quirky, likable heroine

Overall this was an amazing listen. I loved the push and pull aspect of their relationship between Becker and Megan. They both had walls up that they eventually let down. Then angst is kept to a low amount. Just enough to keep your earbuds firmly in place, but not enough to render you a sobbing mess.

Narration by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon was excellent. Mr. Arden does wonderful work of balancing Becker’s sweet and sexy sides while Erin Mallon can deliver humor, heat, and heart at a snap. Looking forward to more from this narrating duo. 4 Stars.

Good love story

Loved the characters, not just the main ones but the secondary too. Hopefully they will get their story, especially Megan's brother. The narrators were good but Erin, I love your narration, but you are dragging the end of your sentences. And a note to the author Ms. B. I hope you aren't dragging the audio book out by having a looong pause after chapters, because that is happening and I'm not sure why. This audio could have been at least an hour shorter. But in all, great sexy love story.

Emotional, and Sexy Forbidden Romance!

I loved this emotional, and sexy forbidden romance! It has a little of everything that I look for, wonderful characters, moving story line, great banter, and steamy passion! Megan and Becker have a tantalizing meet cute behind the bar that Becker owns. They have an instant connection and chemistry. They act on that chemistry with a night of explosive passion. They didn't open up completely about who they were, since Megan was only in town for a short time. Unfortunately, a repeat night is out of the question, when they discovered the next day, that each is a hard limit they both try to avoid. For Becker, he avoids relationships, especially with the sister of his friend and colleague. Megan avoids relationships with firemen because of the tragic loss of her firefighter father, and seeing how devastated her mom was afterward. But Megan and Becker can't avoid their magnetic pull, no matter how hard they try and fight it. I really liked Megan and Becker as they helped each other break down their walls and open their hearts. Megan was strong and independent while Becker was so sweet and swoony. Ms. Blakely weaved a beautiful and seductive love story with genuine characters, witty banter and explosive chemistry. It didn't have over the top angst, or drama, but still had the emotional ardor that I love. I really loved Erin Mallon, and Joe Arden together. Their voices really complimented each other and they were each absolutely perfect for Megan and Becker. Their comedic timing and heartfelt performances were amazing and they made this romance even better.

Trial by Fire...man

While Megan Jansen a free spirit waits for her BFF to get off work, she dumps her plans for a handsome bar owner/fire Captain Becker Thomas. Both enjoying their own solitude, neither aware of the loss each has sacrificed related to firefighting

Megan has one rule - no firemen. Becker has one rule - no commitments. After photographing the towns firefighters for the next calendar Megan and Becker struggle to go their separate ways after the best sex and conversation ever!

Erin Mallon and Joe Arden do an amazing job giving trepidation and lustful expressions to all the characters in this story.
