Flirting with Fire by Piper Rayne

Blue Collar Brothers, Book 1

Synopsis: Everyone knows that if you play with fire you’ll end up getting burned…

What happens when you attend a first responder’s bachelor auction with your best friends? Well, if your name is Madison Kelly like me, your friends end up bidding on a date for you with your high school crush.

That’s right. Even back when I was ‘Fatty Maddie’ to all my classmates, I had eyes for the quarterback of our football team. Not like I was the only one.

Mauro Bianco may fight fires for a living, but he still sets my heart ablaze. One look at the rugged, muscular man he’s turned into and I want to slide down his pole.

One date. That’s all I’m committed to. A few hours and I can tuck him back into that tattered old shoebox in my closet.

As always, the universe has other plans. I never would’ve predicted that in a matter of days he’d turn from my dream guy into my business partner-and that’s when things got interesting.

Review: I had heard pretty great things about Piper Rayne and I’m finally glad to be able to discover her with this brand new series. How to resist a romance with a firefighter? Well I can not!

Maddie always had a crush on Maurio Bianco and if one evening he kissed her after drinking too much, he never remembered her… But now for an auction she finds herself with a date with him. He who does not even know who she is. But fortunately for him, his brothers know her perfectly. After a catastrophic rendezvous, Maddie and Maurio did not think to see each other again until they coincidentally become partners to remake a house together.

I had a good time with this story. Maddie is an interesting character: she tries to be nice to everyone and she seems to have trouble assuming her new body. So, when she finds herself in front of Maurio, the boy who has always been her crush, it’s a little complicated. Maurio is a determined guy, he has changed since they were young, but at the same time our heroine is suspicious!

It was a pretty cool story and I must say that I had a good time with the characters. I loved Maddie’s girlfriends by the way too and I’m curious to discover their stories. I also really enjoyed seeing that there is a story spreading over the other volumes as well and not just going to another couple.
