Review: Heart on Fire by Brandy L. Rivers
Posted by brriske
One night to be someone else.
Mila Day had plans. When her lover demands she give up her dreams to be a trophy wife, she leaves. Wanting to forget the wasted years, she ends up at a party in the next state, craving one wild night of abandon. It was exactly what she wanted.
But it’s not exactly what she gets. Six years later, she’s a happy high school teacher with a beautiful daughter she will always Cherish.
Kyle Blake is a fireman who has been burned. He’s happy alone until he hears joyous laughter next door. He finds it hard to resist Mila, and her little girl, who steal his heart.
When pieces of her past surface, she’ll question everything.
Can they survive the truth?
I am going to start of by saying that I am not typically into the contemporary reads because they are too sappy for me. I like heat, I like raw bedroom shenanigans, I like mystery in a book.
We are first introduced to Mila who has decided that the way to get over a broken heart is to have an anonymous one night stand. Mila has built walls to protect herself and those she loves from feeling the pain she has endured. The first chapter delivers a scorcher of a sex scene that pulled me in hook, line and sinker. Brink Kyle into the mix, hot fireman, single and the epitome of a gentleman. Is he too good to be true, is he like most men who will feed you any line to get into your pants?
This book has nice guys, jerks, great girlfriends and total b’s. You get pain, heartache, regret, happiness and romance. I read this in one sitting, unable to put it down. While there were a couple minute editing things that were not caught, the story was perfect. 5 fangs
