Up in Flames by Jennifer Blackwood

It takes one little spark for enemies to ignite into lovers in a searing-hot novel by USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackwood.

Sloane Garcia has butted heads with Reece Jenkins ever since he was a colossal jerk of epic proportions on a night she’d rather forget. So what if he’s overconfident, ultramasculine, and hard muscled? When she finds out he’s on the auction block at the annual firefighter’s charity event, she decides to give this cocky firefighter a dose of his own medicine. Now that she’s won the hunk, he’s on call—to do whatever Sloane wants.

Sure, Reece and Sloane had a rocky start, but he had his reasons. None of that matters now that he’s the bachelor at her beck and call, tasked with granting her four wishes in four weeks. He runs into burning buildings for a living, but nothing will be as tough as dousing the flames Sloane ignites in him. What started out as just a game might end up with Reece losing the one thing he swore he’d never give up: his heart.

M/F Romance

Sloane and Reece's story was somewhat disappointing for me. The history that Sloane and Reece have is not well developed or deep. It was an encounter that left one embarrassed and because of that, somewhat vengeful.

Sloane doesn't like Reece. She believes that he was cruel and is just not for her; despite his attempts to mend their relationship, she is immature and annoying about it. When she sees a chance to get her revenge, she jumps at it.

Reece is a risk taker and he knows it. But when a risk almost costs him his team and injures him, with his captain already disliking him, Reece is coerced into an auction to raise money for a good cause.

Sloane and Reece dance around their attraction and the history they have – their immaturity is rampant in this story.

I was very disappointed in how the characters handled the situation. Even the fire captain was immature in this book. I am hoping in the next installment that there is a little more adult romance and less young adult behavior.
