I loved the chemistry between Josh and Melody. Seriously, they had some pretty smoking chemistry together and it just seemed to jump off the pages. From their first encounter to the last their relationship felt fresh and I just found myself not only rooting for them but unable to put the book down.
Coming off a ten year engagement, Melody is looking for some fun and excitement with no strings attached. When she catches Josh looking at her with want in his eyes at the market she figures it's finally time to make her move before she looses her nerve. What occurs after between these two will leave you panting for more.
I really liked these two. Josh is a sexy alpha fire chief (seriously can't get any hotter) and Melody is the sweet girl next door with a naughty side. Together these two were explosive and I really enjoyed watching them fall for one another.
I hope that Samanthe Beck decides to write more stories set in Bluelick because I'm loving this small town. Plus there was mention of a sexy Wolverine that I'm super intrigued by and definitely want more of. Light Her Fire was a super sexy story and I highly recommend you rush out and get a copy now. You won't be disappointed at all.

She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier.

Torn picks up after the shocking events in Connected, and the reader quickly finds out more about where the cliffhanger left off. Now that we know Ben is not really dead and has returned home, River and Dahlia are both left to wonder what the future holds for all of them. Dahlia thought that Ben was the one for her, but after his death she reconnected with River and they discovered a connection unlike anything they had ever felt before. Even though Dahlia needs to know about what really happened with Ben, she is committed to River and determined to show him that Ben being back changes nothing between them. But even though River knows how Dahlia feels about him, he is also scared that now that Ben is back things will change. With Ben determined to get back everything he had before, including Dahlia, will River and Dahlia be able to get through everything and have a future together? Or will the obstacles in their way tear them apart?
River and Dahlia are some of my all time favorite book characters. I really love both of them, and I love how perfect they are for each other. They are so different from any other characters I have ever read before, and I really loved seeing the narrators continue to bring their story to life. This book is so much more emotional than the first, and both River and Dahlia are struggling with what their new circumstances mean for their relationship. I felt like Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox did such a great job of really showing the emotion and turmoil that these characters are feeling. Their narration made everything so realistic, and listening to the audiobook almost felt like you were really a part of what these characters were going through.
I really thought that Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox were great narrators for this story. They were clear and easy to understand. They were also able to do multiple characters well so that they listener always knew who was talking. I thought that Christian did a great River, but he also does a really great job at Ben as well. Veronica Meunch continued to show that she is great at Dahlia as well, and I really thought that she was one of the better female narrators that I have listened to so far. I am really enjoying these two in this series, and I really hope that they will continue to narrate the audiobooks for the Connections series. They do such a great job of bringing Kim Karr's fabulous books to life, and I really think that they are the perfect pair of narrators for these books.

Let me tell you that this book is HOT and some of the things that come out of Andrew's mouth had me blushing and fanning my face because oh my sexy! He's raunchy and cocky and kind of an ass but despite that I still really liked him. I knew there just had to be more to him than this nonchalant front he puts off. I found myself turning the pages to see what made him tick and to see more of him.
As for Aubrey I really liked her and I liked the fact that she stands up for herself. Yes she still seems to always give in to Andrew but she's not compliant and a pushover. She gives as good as she takes.
I really liked these two together. They are hot, sexy and the chemistry between them is explosive. I loved watching these two come together and realize their true feelings for one another.
I seriously loved this book and hope to read more from this author in the future.
