A sexy category romance novella from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
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.

Ten minutes later, he opened the door and Jamie stood on his porch, the moonlight illuminating her. The faint glow of the half-light made her even prettier, her blond hair streaming down her back and over her shoulders. He was about to make a wisecrack about late-night visitors, but she pressed her lips against his in the sweetest kiss anyone had ever given him. In seconds, she’d disarmed him, and a groan escaped his throat. She brushed her lips lightly against his, kissing so softly it was as if she were barely there. But that’s what made her kiss so enticing; it was a promise of more.

They stood like that kissing—only kissing—for minutes, and soon he threaded his hands into her hair, savoring the soft feel of the strands on his rough fingers.
“Hi,” he said when she broke the kiss.
“Hi. I have a late-night delivery for you,” she said, and trailed her hands down his shirt. His breath caught in his throat as her fingers danced across his stomach, and she smiled as she traced the outline of his abs. He grabbed her arms gently but firmly, and pulled her into the house.

“Whatever delivery you have for me I don’t need the neighbors seeing,” he said.

The door was swinging shut as she claimed his mouth again. She kissed harder this time, sliding her tongue across his, searching his mouth as she laced her fingers through his. It was as if she were claiming him, and he wanted that.

“I’m sorry I was worried about Melody,” she said as she pulled away.

“Don’t even think twice about it. I kind of like how you want me all to yourself,” he said, running his finger along her cheek.

“I do. And I want to do something for you.”

He quirked an eyebrow in question.

“You’ve had a long shift. You work hard. And I want you to sleep well.”

“What do you have in mind?” he said, but whatever it was he was sure he’d like it, judging from the way hot tension started to roll through his veins, especially when she wedged herself between his legs, rubbing against his erection. He grabbed her hips, tugging her closer.

She looped her hands around his waist. “You have the sexiest back,” she said, and before he could respond, she’d dipped her hands below the waistband of his shorts, touching his bare ass. “Have I told you how much I love that you go commando?”

“You have not. Feel free to tell me now.”

“It is so hot,” she said, cupping his cheeks and squeezing. “You might have the best butt in the world.”

 Lord have mercy on my pitiful perverted and lustful soul! This book was HOT!!
I am talking ice water to the face, down your shirt, and any other inflammatory part of your body, hot. I don't know why it is, but nothing will sear my steak faster than well done dirty talk. It doesn't have to be elaborate or even exceedingly kinky, just well done. Smith was a effing CHAMPION! I would have knocked that boy down and rode him like a Derby winner. And that is just what my girl Jamie did. But she tried to blow it..... *snort* (pun intended)

She was worried about his serial dating habits and didn't want to screw up the friendship. Understandable, but honey, that's why you have a little "come to Jesus" chat with all those who think to take your place. Clawed out eyes don't grow back and they have a tendency to seep. Not attractive. Anyway, Smith does some mighty fine convincing of his own.

Burn for Me was quick, fun, intelligent, and just an all around great little "start me up" book. I loved it, I loved Smith and I will always include monkeys in my Mad Libs from now on. Great job, Lauren, well done.

LOL! Sebella your review is great. I love your advice to the heroine. Friends to lovers storylines can be fun and frustrating, but obviously hot too. Nice!
