Okay this review is going to be broken into 3 parts ( one for each story) and than given an overall rating at the end.

Too Hot to Handle:

First Line(s): "What the hell is wrong with my image?"

My Review: I wanted more! More! MORE!! I feel this story line and characters had what it takes to be a full length story. Jade adn Quinn feeled very real to me, like neighbors or people I would see in my town everyday. They were endearing. I was bummed when I got to the end of this short but steamy story.

My Rating: 4 stars

"The Firefighter Wears Prada"

First Line(s): Oh. My. God. There he is.

My Review: This was another solid story. I loved how Evan and Delta called each other out from the first moment they met. Made me think of hubby and I because we hold nothing back. But that was it for my love for these two characters. I just didn't feel a connection with them. The story line was awesome and new and refreshing but since I failed to connect with Delta and Evan I was okay with the story ending when it did.

My Rating: 3 Stars

"Playing with Fire"

First Line(s): The acrid smell of smoke rolled through the cracked, second floor window of Lincoln Gabriels townhouse.

My Review: Out of the 3 stories this was probably the hottest of the lot ( who doesn't want hot sex scenes) but this story tried to pack too much in to a short story. Therefore I feel it needed to be a full length book just to get the story out. It felt rush and choppy.

Favorite Line(s): Fighting fires is my passion, but you're my calling."

My Rating: 3 stars

Overall Rating for Men on Fire: 3 stars



Until next time...
Happy Reading!
