review || SEDUCING THE FIREMAN { blog tour } by Jennifer Bonds

Entangled Brazen | May 2, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Risky Business, book 3


He’ll break her three-date rule or go down in flames trying…

Firefighter Jackson Hart is back in Brooklyn and on the hunt for the girl who’s kept him burning for ten long years. The girl he left, in a total prick move, without saying goodbye. Now he’s determined to make it right, to hell with her three-date rule. 

But Becca’s not ready to forgive and forget. In fact, she seems determined to stoke his fire every chance she gets. She wants to avoid sexy distractions like him? Fine. Because what she doesn’t know—yet—is that Jax isn’t the kind of man to give up when he wants something. And he always gets what he wants.

Becca may have a weakness for dessert, but Jax has always had a weakness for her. And after ten long years of fantasizing about the girl he left behind, he isn’t above pressing the advantage to get this sexy spitfire in his bed.
“What do you think you’re doing?” Becca asked, planting a hand on her hip and blocking the entrance with her other arm.

“Coming up for dessert.” Jax held up the carryout bag her mother had given him on the way out the door. “Your mom packed tartufo for two. It’s still your favorite, right?”

“Keep it.” She crossed her arms over her chest. “I’m on a diet anyway.”

“Liar. You’re perfect just the way you are.” His gaze slid over her body, assessing her from head to toe and giving her all the feels in her belly. It was clear he liked what he saw. Lust burned bright, flickering in those blue eyes like a flame greedy for oxygen. She squeezed her thighs tight, refusing to acknowledge her own desire. “Besides,” he went on, “I don’t have any spoons at my place, so if you don’t invite me up, I’ll just have to leave them both here with you.”

Becca weighed her options. Her mom’s tartufo was the best in the borough, and if they stood around arguing about it much longer, there’d be nothing left but a soupy mess. Refusing to forgo a perfectly good dessert, she relented and opened the door for Jax to pass.

Once inside the apartment, she moved swiftly, making quick work of the carryout package. Then she and Jax settled in at the bar, spoons in hand. Only, the way he was looking at her spoke of an entirely different kind of hunger, one she refused to consider any further before dessert.

Instead, she dug into her ice cream.

“Oh, my God,” she moaned, the dark chocolate coating her mouth with its silky goodness. “This is so good, I could orgasm right here.”

Good one, Becca.

As soon as the words were out, she regretted them, but what could she do? He seemed to have that effect on her. Every time she was near him she felt like that bumbling kid again, fifteen and clueless.


The last thing she needed was for Jax to think she had sex on the brain. Especially sex with him.

“Well, isn’t that a sad state of affairs.”

“Excuse me?” She dropped her spoon on the counter and shot him the haughtiest look she could muster. Who the hell did he think he was, anyway?

“I like dessert as much as the next guy, but if you think ice cream can make you come,” he said, his words a smoky caress, “then you’ve never had a real orgasm. I’d be happy to correct that for you any time. Just say the word.”

What a cute second-chance story.

When Jax left town ten years ago, he left behind the one girl who could mean something to him -- but he left her in a pretty young-guy type of move. Frankie's family was the family he claimed as his own, and leaving her and the entire lot of them... He had his reasons, but he hurt the family, and himself, in the process.

Now he's back home to find Frankie and make amends with the girl who stole his heart, even if slightly unbeknownst to her.

Becca... I liked her. She was a woman scorned and she went out of her way to try to put Jax in his place -- even if it were slightly juvenile, considering her age when hurt and her age now. She holds secrets from him at first, but more so to guard her own heart. If she hurts him in the process, so be it. She was hurt once too...

Jax and Becca were super cute and fun. I enjoyed every moment of their story. This series has been a fun one, but Jax and Becca definitely were my favorite couple. Their chemistry, their serious moments, their playful moments... Even Jax and his arrogant moments.
