Burnin’ Up Memphis (Firehouse 69 #1) by Delilah Devlin


 She’s the one fire he may not be able to control.When a roof collapse kills his best friend and his girlfriend clears out his apartment and leaves, firefighter John Cooper knows he shouldn’t sit alone in his empty apartment. But when he accepts an invitation to Club LaForge, his feet get colder with every step he takes inside.

The sights, sounds and smells of the BDSM club make him sweat, and not because he’s turned off. Yet he can’t bring himself to admit—to himself, or to his luscious guide, Moira—that this lifestyle might just be what he needs.

An experienced BDSM trainer, Moira senses that Coop is not only a Dom in the making, but exactly what she’s been looking for. A man to be her lover and her Dom. The only problem is, Coop isn’t looking for anything complicated.

Moira’s willing to start slow and easy, but even once there’s enough trust to bring Coop into her world—and to her Dom—she’s still worried he’ll look for the nearest exit.

Warning: Do you smell smoke? Don’t worry, it’s just a hot and sexy firefighter getting down and dirty. Contains BDSM scenes, ropes, floggers, some spanking, some sharing, and some five-alarm sex.

I have mixed emotions about this book.  I loved how it was a quick read for me personally, and I thought that the smut factor was right on with the story.  The characters were really well written, and it was very easy to connect with them.

 

The only thing that I didn’t really like was how Moira seemed to be pushing John into a BDSM relationship, even when she knew that he wasn’t ready for one.  I felt like she just didn’t care about how he felt about it, and just kept pushing for what she wanted.  That didn’t take away from the story completely for me, but it did bug me.

 

I will say this though, this book does make me want to go and read some other books by Ms. Devlin because she hints enough about what had happened in them in this book.  I do plan on reading more from this author in the future.
