Review ~ BURN FOR ME by Lauren Blakely

She’s the one fire he can’t put out…

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town—his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.


For a novella that hasn’t the support of a previous full-length novel, Burn for Me is tight and has all the elements I love to find in a Brazen read, i.e sexy guy, feisty lady and passionate extra-curricular activities.  I have to confess that Lauren Blakely is a new author to me, but if this is anything to go by, her novels are certainly on my radar now.

Smith Grayson and Jamie Lansing are best friends.  He is all man; sexy, buff, a little rough around the edges, has a dirty mouth, but is absolutely adorable with it.  And the icing on the cake… he is a Firefighter.  Yes I am one of those women who has a thing for he who saves kitties from trees.

But he isn’t Jamie’s type - she wants the hearts and the flowers and a man who will recite Shakespeare to her whilst they lay in a bath surrounded by bubbles and candles.  But when Smith asks his bestie for a dance at a party she discovers that the Bard’s words are beaten by Smith’s Ode-to-Sex…

“If you take off anything else, I am going to be f****** you.  Got that?  This is your warning.”

And once she has a taste, she wants more and proposes a no-strings week of horizontal and vertical pleasure.

I wanted to shake some sense into Jamie for her stubborn denial and launch myself at Smith as he was such a dirty sweetheart.  Their chemistry was excellent and with sweet touching moments combined with passion, I devoured it in one sitting.  Plus with introductions to various secondary characters, I’m hoping that there will be more romps involving Firefighters.  A steamy seductive short read I recommend.
