Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley
Read July 2016
Derek aka Phoenix is a New York City firefighter and has dedicated his life to saving people. When he loses two of his men in the line of duty, he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to see the light again.
However, when an angel in the form of a woman named Fia appears before him, his world as he knows it is turned upside down.
Fia has been working hard to make money so she can finish her last semester of school. A fire in her building sets her back to square one, but the fireman who saves her turns out to be more than she ever expected.
Once he gets his arms around her, there’s no letting go. Because when you’ve got your forever in your arms, nothing else matters.
I liked the idea of this story but after I finished reading it, I was just left feeling meh. It was good and all but it just wasn’t overly great either. I guess I just didn’t really connect with this story unlike some of the author previous books that I have read.

The Other Man #1
Read February 2016
Sex is not ‘routine’ any more.
There are sex shops decorating the high-street, free porn all over the internet and lets not even get started on the new BDSM phenomenon. So when things get a little ‘stale’ in the bedroom, what would you do?
Carly made a suggestion; a suggestion I wanted nothing to do with at first, but she was my wife and I’d have done anything to make her happy. I went along with her plan, even though I really didn’t want to. It actually worked, for a while. Until something changed.
Then I wasn’t doing it for her anymore.
Instead, it was all about secret liaisons, stolen moments and the thrill of getting caught. My life changed overnight and there was nothing I could do to prevent it. Lust is an unstoppable emotion when it takes hold.
Rules are broken.
Mistakes are made.
Lives are destroyed. Be careful what you wish for, because sometimes, that wish can come true. Blake Thomas was her wish…
Until he became mine.

# The Other Man
#2 The Only Man
I don’t know why but this book really drew me in. I mean as soon as I read the synopsis I wanted to know more. Then I read the prologue and I needed to read more. I needed to know how Blake got to where he was in life, hows his story started and why he was asking the reader not to hate him for what he had done. Intrigued? I know I was. Just those few pages alone left we wanting more and more is what I got.
Funnily enough, I didn’t end up hating Blake for what he did and what he put those closest to him through. But his wife; now that is a whole other story. Right from the start there she just something about her and the more the story went on the more annoying she got. She became so self-centered and everything had to be about her. I was so glad when Blake finally realized this too.
Blake and Zach may have meet in an usually way but they are just perfect together. They support each other through everything and share some pretty hot scenes together too. I can’t wait to read the next books in the series.
Fall For Me by JC Emery
Ladder Company #1
Read April 2015
“Just let yourself fall for me.”
Melanie Kincaid is a trust-fund baby with a knack for sassy comebacks and unnecessarily complicating her privileged life. So, of course, she would have to fall in love with a man she can’t have.
Jameson Hayes is a NYC firefighter for Manhattan’s oldest ladder company. He has big shoes to fill and a city to protect. He’s strong, sexy, and not looking for the complications Melanie brings. But he can’t stay away from her either. The attraction between them is immediate, and the pull is crazy powerful. But she’s only home for the summer and long-distance relationships never work.
Unfortunately, Melanie’s beauty and smart mouth are a lethal combination and Jameson isn’t the only Hayes who’s interested. As if his brother isn’t enough to compete with, now the city’s most famous arsonist wants to claim her as his next prize. Jameson can’t stand to watch Melanie get hurt and she can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble.

#1 Fall For Me
I was really excited when I read the blurb for this new series. I haven’t read anything by this author before and was prepared to try something new. Who doesn’t love the idea of a firefighter falling in love and finding the one?
Fall for me started out really strong and I was really engrossed in the storyline. However about half way through it started to fall away for me. I was expecting more romance between the main characters and more drama for a firefighter romance. And because I was left wanting something more, I feel left hanging by this story. I’m happy that they got their happy every after, well I think they did. The ending came to quickly and now I want to see more from Jameson and Mel.
