Ignited – Kimberly Van Meter
Alexis Matheson wakes up in her bed to discover a hot, naked fireman beside her in bed. He’s Layton Davis, her brother Erik’s best friend, and he mistakenly thought she was out of town when he stumbled sleepily into her bed. During the ensuing chaos when Alexis is chasing him out, she sprains her ankle, which means she’ll be unable to drive her best friend Emma to Colorado Springs. Layton, being the gallant man he is, offers to stay behind and watch Alexis while Erik drives Emma.
After a breakup with her last boyfriend, Alexis shouldn’t be ready to hop into a new relationship with another man, but being around the hot fireman has her ready to jump his bones. Layton is there to take care of Alexis, but they’re soon “taking care” of each other. Both are afraid of what will happen if Erik finds out his best friend is boinking his sister, so they decide it will end when Erik returns. Or will it really end?
A sizzling start to this Wrong Bed tale, Ignited has Layton and Alexis getting ready for Christmas while they’re enjoying the pleasurable company of each other. Readers will certainly feel the pleasure as they fall in love.
Where There’s Smoke – Liz Talley
Erik didn’t expect his sister to be there when he arrived home after a late night fighting a fire and certainly didn’t expect to find her best friend Emma Rose Brent sleeping in his bed. Emma has always been the sweet friend of Alexis, so he didn’t look at her much the past few years. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t take a peek or two…
During the snowy drive to Colorado Springs to take Emma to her parents’ house, Erik’s car slides off the road, leaving them stranded on an isolated stretch of highway. They manage to find an abandoned cabin and proceed to make themselves at home. The closeness stirs up the desire between them and soon they’re making love. But once morning arrives, will Emma and Erik call it only a one-night stand?
Emma has been attracted to Erik for several years, but he only has seen her as “little” Emma, his sister’s friend, and as such, off limits. She’s proving to him she’s very much grown up and sexy. Erik is the hot man of her dreams, but is he “commitment” material? With no one else around, they start to get to know each other and it amps up the desire that was bubbling underneath the surface. Erik can’t promise Emma anything more than tonight, but is that enough for her?
Stranded in a snowstorm is one of my favorite themes and in Where There’s Smoke will provide readers with a real treat.
Everyone ends up in the “wrong bed” at first in A WRONG BED CHRISTMAS, but by the end, everyone is exactly where they want to be. A sizzling hot read for the holidays, grab this gem of a book.
