He’s ready to lead the way
As the owner of DreamMakers Inc., Parker Wilson takes the skills he learned as a Ranger to help men win in the love department, using every resource available to plan the perfect date. But when a routine recon turns into an unexpected night of fiery passion, Parker’s mission becomes personal—and he won’t give up until Lynn Davidson is all his.
She’s more than willing to follow
Lynn is a goner from the moment she lays eyes on the delectable Parker. She’s tired of sticking to the straight and narrow. It’s time to walk on the wild side, and what better way than in the arms of the most irresistible man she’s ever met? But when their red-hot affair is threatened, it’ll take a team effort to make their dreams come true.
After leaving the Rangers, Parker and two of his fellow Special Ops soldiers created DreamMakers, a company designed to help clueless men plan the most romantic dates that said clueless men aren’t able to conceive of on their own. Forgot your wife’s birthday? Fiancé thinks you don’t have a romantic bone in your body? Turn to DreamMakers. They’ll use their recon skills to create the perfect date for your perfect lady.
But when douchebag Phil enters their office wanting to hire them for his planned proposal to his girlfriend, Lynn, they sense that something’s not right. And when Parker starts tailing Lynn, he questions how any woman could be with a guy like Phil. When he finds out from Lynn’s own mouth that’s she’s newly single, the job is called off and Parker wastes no time making his move. But when Phil becomes desperate and learns the truth about who Lynn is now dating, it’s up to the DreamMakers to use their recon skills for more than just planning the perfect date.
I’m not really a fan of books written by more than one author, but I’ve read books from both these authors before so I thought I’d give ALL FIRED UP a try. Being free didn’t hurt either. The biggest letdown in this book? The threesome between Parker, Lynn and Dean. I would barely call that scene a threesome. It started out hot and with so much promise, but then it’s like the authors changed their mind and backed off at the last minute. Talk about anti-climatic. I’ve read threesomes written by both these authors before and those scenes were scorching hot. Panty melting hot. So to say I was quite let down with this one is an understatement.
I thought the characters meshed well and I loved the banter between Parker, Dean and Jack. I loved Dean and Suz (Lynn’s best friend), who are so alike it’s scary. There are POVs from both Parker and Lynn, as well as a couple from some of the other characters. They were just little ones, but it was nice to get a small glimpse of what they were thinking. Overall I thought the story was a little cheesy and obvious, but it was fun to read and it came with a HEA, so I was happy.
