Hank’s had a thing for Olive for as long as he could remember. When he realized she needed a roommate, he jumped at the chance. Why wouldn’t he when annoying Olive had always been his favorite pastime? Then one day when Hank let his curiosity get the better of him, he discovered Olive had a whole other side of her she kept hidden away.
Now, all Hank had to do was convince Olive life was a heck of a lot more fun when you add some fire to it. Honestly, what could possibly go wrong?
Teased by Fire is the perfect combination of steam, romance, and humor!!!!
The book opens with Olive steaming mad that her bestie, Miranda, is moving out. She isn’t mad that Miranda is leaving. She is sad, but she would never ask her friend to turn down her dream job. No, she is mad that Miranda’s brother, Hank, is moving in. She has worked hard to maintain her anti-social existence, and Hank is the complete opposite. This girl is clueless about what’s coming her way….see Hank has always had a thing for her, and he is about tired of keeping those feelings secret.
Can I just say that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Olive!!!! She is one of the most likeable and unique female lead characters I’ve had the pleasure to meet….and she owns that uniqueness which made me love her more. This woman has a Christmas tree in her room all year long! I would love that!!!! That’s not to say she doesn’t have insecurities like most women do, but she does not let those insecurities determine the direction of her life.
Hank is one of those guys you can’t help but love. Yeah, he’s pretty easy on the eyes, but he is much more than his looks. He loves Olive for who she is even if he thinks she needs to get out more, but he accepts that about her. He challenges Olive which she needs sometimes. And, who couldn’t love a guy who has a cat named Dog? Speaking of Dog, she was a character herself! I LOVED HER!!!
This wasn’t just a fantastic romantic comedy. It was about accepting who you are as a person and owning it. That is a lesson I think a lot of us could learn. This is my first book by Molly O’Hare, and I’m so thankful and excited that I found her. If you want a book that just brings a smile to your face and makes reality slip away for a bit, you can’t find a better book than Teased by Fire.
Also, she loves Fun Facts. New ones are at the end of each of her book. If you look close enough, some are hidden on her website too.
