Although Becca’s made it clear she has no interest in rekindling the past, Jax is determined to turn up the heat. And when he crashes Becca’s set in the scene below, the sparks fly…
When he finally found her in a supply closet, she was bent over with her rear in the air, her dark leggings showcasing the perfection of her ass. Not quite what he was expecting, but damn if his cock didn’t swell at the sight. The mental picture of taking her from behind was front and center in his brain as he watched her, eyes glued to her backside.
“Stop staring at my ass,” she said, twisting to confirm her suspicions, “and help me find my phone. I thought I left it on the shelf in here, but I can’t find it. Maybe it fell on the floor?”
She continued to rummage through the boxes and bins on the lower shelves, so he joined her, using his own phone to brighten the dim room as he looked under the rusty shelves. Crawling around in a dirty supply room wasn’t exactly how he imagined spending an evening with the sexy woman beside him, but better him crawling around on the floor than her. Spotting a dark lump beneath the shelving unit, he reached under, hoping like hell he wasn’t about to catch a case of lockjaw for his trouble, and pulled out the phone.
When he turned to stand, he found Becca right behind him. They collided, his face going straight to her lady bits as her hands tangled in his hair, holding him tight.
They both froze.
The sexual tension in the room was so damn thick they’d need the Jaws of Life to cut through it.
He gripped her ass, cupping those round cheeks and using them as leverage to pull her close. She remained silent, as if waiting to see what he’d do next. Keeping their bodies flush, he climbed to his feet slowly, savoring the feel of her soft curves against his chest. Their eyes met, and damn if he didn’t want to lose himself in those dark depths. The way she was looking at him, like he was the answer to a prayer she’d never voiced aloud? It nearly stripped him of his restraint. A lesser part of his brain told him to take it slow—the last thing he wanted to do was spook her—but he ignored it, letting instinct take over. Their attraction? It wasn’t cerebral. It was primal.
“Don’t even think about it,” she warned, making no move to separate their bodies, although they stood so close he could feel the rise and fall of her breasts with each breath.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.” She rolled her eyes and shifted her weight. Was it wishful thinking or had she actually gotten closer? “Don’t be coy.”
“Are you seriously going to pretend you don’t feel that?” He smirked. “The sexual tension in this closet is so thick we’re both drowning in it.”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
“Now who’s being coy? One word, Becca.” He paused. “Yes. That’s all you have to say.”
In Jennifer Bonds Seducing the Fireman, book three in the author’s Risky Business series for Entangled Publishing’s Brazen line, firefighter Jackson Hart has returned to New York to not only join the FDNY but to also reconnect with the girl he left behind ten years ago. Too bad Becca Mancini is all grown up and uninterested in his return or his intention to gain her forgiveness.
When this story first started, I wasn’t quite sure what to think about Becca Mancini. She was a strong female character without doubt, but she was also a bit stuck in the past and the hurt she once obtained there. Yet, even though I didn’t agree with some of the choices Becca made in regard to Jax, I did understand her desire to protect herself from more hurt. For this reason, I have to say, Becca’s character both interested and intrigued me. She was strong yet vulnerable, angry yet craving something more, something deeper, more real.
Jax…gosh, I loved him from the start of this one. His arrogance, confidence, and humor were the perfect counterpoint to Becca’s anger and opposition. His character was well-developed and so compelling that he pulled me in from the first line, the first paragraph, and he didn’t let me down in all those that followed it. Which only made me love him even more!
Seducing the Fireman is a well-written, easily engaging, and thoroughly entertaining romance read. I loved both characters and the journey they took to reach their happily ever after. This was a fantastic reunion romance that stands out from the crowd, with two characters I absolutely enjoyed reading about.
If you’re like me and you love a good reunion romance, with the added bonus of an enemies to lovers theme, pick up a copy of Seducing the Fireman. It’s a great romance, and a really great read.
