I Burned Down His House (Love at First Crime Series #3) by Jessica Frances Review Tour with Excerpt

5 Dec

Title: I Burned Down His House

Series: Love at Frist Crime Series

Author: Jessica Frances

Genre: NA Romance/Suspense

Release Date: November 28, 2017

 

She burned his house down, so he lit a fire between them that she could never extinguish.

 

So, I burned his house down.

It was an accident.

I mean, technically, the dog did it.

Well, the dog helped me to do it.

Did I mention it was an accident?

When circumstances mean I suddenly have a new housemate,

A man who is my ultimate fantasy,

And my entire world is turned upside down by new friends,

And a dog who likes to get me into trouble,

I have to wonder how my life got so crazy.

Add in my neighbor, who is under investigation;

Some unfinished business from the past, which just won’t go away;

Interfering family, who don’t know when to stop;

And mixed signals, making me wonder if fantasies really can come true,

And you have my new, hectic, crazy life.

But, when things take a dangerous turn,

And lives are on the line,

Will we all make it through in one piece?

Or is everything destined to crumble down around us?

Who would have thought that burning down a house would change everything so much?

Then again, as some people say: there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.

 

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

*****5 STARS*****

What a great read!!! Jessica Frances had me from the very beginning. What a first chapter! I could tell I was going to love Teagan when I first met her. Her personality and humor jumped right off the pages.

The cover and the synopsis tells you what is going to happen, but the characters and developing storyline pulls you in. Teagan is divorced, and she doesn’t have a huge social life. She crushes on her sexy neighbor, Joey. She adores his dog, Karma. When she hears Karma whining, she goes over to feed her and take her out. What happens…an accidental fire…will completely change her life.

Like I wrote earlier, I just LOVED this girl! She is definitely someone I would want as a friend. She’s cute, sweet, and has a killer sense of humor. I don’t like to compare characters in different books, but she does remind me a little of Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich’s books. But make no mistake, she’s definitely her own woman!
I haven’t read the other books, so I can’t really compare Joey to other characters. He does seem like a player who has commitment issues. However, I couldn’t help but love him. I liked the development of their relationship. He was just a neighbor, then a friend, and then more. They were the cutest couple!!!!

I have to say that the character that had my heart was my sweet Karma. I have two loveable furbabies myself, so I do love a book with dogs. Jessica Frances did an outstanding job of making Karma a HUGE character. She is the one who brought Teagan and Joey together. She also brought a group of friends into Teagan’s life as well. I adored Teagan and Harvey’s friendship!

I highly recommend this book! It has everything I love….romance, chemistry, friendship, family, mystery, action, and one very loveable canine!!!!

Trying not to feel like a loser that I have Joey’s number memorized, I dial, hoping like hell he picks up. It has to be in the incredibly early hours of morning, so there is every chance, if he hasn’t come home yet, it’s because he’s out with someone and won’t answer.

After five, drawn-out, torturous rings, he finally picks up.

“What?” he grumbles. I can’t tell if I woke him up, or if he’s just annoyed to be disturbed.

“Hey, Joey, it’s Teagan—”

“Who?”

I pause, annoyed I’m so forgettable he can’t remember who he gave his house key to! “Teagan Bevon, the woman who lives next door?”

“Oh … Oh!” There is finally recognition in his voice. “Right. Look, Teags”—he sounds so distracted I don’t think he even noticed he gave me a nickname—“I’m kinda busy—”

“But—”

“—so I’ll just see you later—”

“Wait!” I cry out, afraid I will hear the dial tone any second.

“Actually, you probably won’t see me later. I’m going to be—”

“I BURNED YOUR HOUSE DOWN!” I scream into the phone and am finally met with silence. “Joey?” I whisper, fearful he already hung up.

“Can you repeat that for me?” he finally gasps out.

“I …” Now I feel nervous. “I … umm … I accidently”—I use too much emphasis on the word, making me sound extra guilty—“burned down your house.”

“Are you okay?”

My heart skips a beat. I just told this man that I burned down his house and his first thought is if I’m okay?

“Some smoke inhalation, but nothing serious. I’m so sorry about your things—”

“How about Karma?”

“Karma got out fine. She’s with the Glovers,” So … maybe she’s not okay. The almost ninety-year-old couple may not be quite at the same speed as Karma.

As he sighs in relief, my hands begin to shake again. 

“Joey, I’m so sorry.”

 

Born and raised in South Australia, Jessica spends her days working in a bakery, afternoons catching up on lost sleep, and nights reading and writing. Writing has always been a passion of hers, however it wasn’t until recently that she decided to put pen to paper and make things official.

Can two people learn to trust and live free from their past sorrows?

 

Excerpt

Her eyes opened, and in them I saw… shit, determination for some reason. “One night.”

Could she mean what I thought she did?

Christ, I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to deny her what I thought she was asking.

“One night for what?” I asked, my whole body tense from those two words rolling in my head.

She straightened. I saw her hands at her sides fist, but not before I caught them trembling. “I-I want control.”

“Darlin’?”

She shook her head, at what I wasn’t sure. “Will you let me have control, of your body?”

Cover Reveal: Risking It All

by Joyce d’Mot

 

Genre: Romance

 

 

The last three years of Kenya Davis’s love life were rife with false starts and heartaches in her pursuit to get back her ex-boyfriend, Dave. The one bright spot she clung to was her job as a health scientist with CDC. When she received a promotion that placed her in the field, Kenya saw it as the distraction she desperately needed.

 

Simon Washington lived a charmed life before his world came crashing down around him. One fateful night full of confusion and heartache, he found himself accused of domestic violence and the attempted murder of a police officer. The once – affluent businessman was now on the run from the law, leaving behind his wife, a thriving business, and his social status.

 

Kenya’s new position took her under the interstate bridge to the homeless, but among the poor and hungry, she discovered Simon. Their worlds collided in an unexpected mash-up of uncertainty and desire. 

 

Kenya wanted to comfort him, despite the warning bells going off in her head. Was he the dangerous criminal the news described him as or the same guy she knew from college? Should she trust the man who fell into her world and crowded everything else out?

 

Simon felt drawn to the courageous, kindhearted spirit who refused to protect herself from his drama and accept that her trust in him put her in danger. He had to push her away, but the sweetness of her presence was hard to give up when he needed it so much.

 

Risking It All follows Kenya and Simon as they walk through a minefield of emotions and close calls to find and maintain their freedom and maybe even love – with or without each other.

I’m the jokester, the one who pulls the best pranks. I’m the guy in the house who the frat brothers avoid for fear of what they’ll wake up to face the next day.

 

But now, the jokes on me. Literally on me! In BIG. BOLD. BLACK LETTERS!

 

A tattoo, of another guy’s name. I was branded, and no one else can know.

 

The problem is I don’t know how it got there? Who the hell is Blake? Worst of all why the F*ck did I have a guy’s name tattooed on my wrist to begin with? What could have possessed me?

 

I’ve done a lot of things, tortured a lot of my brothers, and I’ve loved every single minute of it.

 

I guess it’s payback.

 

The only things I remember are…dark hair, smelling of sweet honey and maybe something floral, soft hands, and the sweetest laugh.

 

So tell me, how I can get from a memory like that, to waking up in the backyard beside the pool, with a F*ucking tattoo? Of a dude’s name?

Genre: New Adult Romance

Publishing Date: December 5th, 2017

Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.

The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.

And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.

Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me

a reason why.

If rumors at our college are to be believed, he’s dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he’s shielded by secrets he doesn’t trust me enough to share.

Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.

Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.

Though I want him.

And I know he wants me.

His secrets keep me far from his heart.

I should walk away with my pride intact.

I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.

Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.

However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he’s hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?

The British Knight by Louise Bay

 

Release Date: December 5th

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.
