Jameson and Ryan deliver a totally swoony romance

wickedflameebookcoverWicked Flame by Ella Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That was so swoony 😍

Jameson is now my fave Ella book boyfriend but Ryan’s a very close second and together they’re a dreamy pair who are absolutely perfect for each other.

There’s very little angsting in this instalment, which I appreciated, a little drama which fits within the narrative and also provides an element of humour, and insanely hot chemistry between GQ and his fireman.

There are a few overall story threads which weren’t closed completely but there’s another duo to come in the series so I’m expecting they’ll be wrapped up there.

Ella writes incredibly romantic men and these two are no exception. It’s just a feel good story from start to finish.

It’s only not five stars because I still think it could have been one book rather than the duo.

But then again, other people might like the idea of getting more than just the one 😁

Either way, it made me happy and I loved how it came together. We also get some guest appearances from Alexander and Sean, as well as Gabe and Marcus, so that was a bonus too.

The heat is definitely on with this scorching romance

59089442._SY475_Wicked Heat by Ella Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ella Frank writes totally engaging stories which draw the reader in and this book is no exception.

This story is told in dual POV and ends not quite on a cliffhanger but at a point in the relationship between Ryan and Jameson where decisions have been made that have led to some soul-searching and a fair bit of upset.

Not that it’s deliberate angst, it’s perfectly in keeping with the narrative and I had the utmost sympathy for Jameson at the situation he finds himself in. Thankfully, there’s no dramady here, he and Ryan don’t immediately miscommunicate or have a big tantrum.

There’s some wonderful dialogue and then the book ends on a hopeful note which I am sure will be picked up immediately in book two.

Up until this point, the slowly unfolding friendship and attraction between the two men had been steadily growing more and more solid, with some really sweet moments and some incredibly hot ones.

I loved the whole fated narrative that Ella was spinning where the universe seems to be conspiring to put these two complete opposites in each other’s orbit out of the blue.

This is definitely going to the top of my list of favourite Ella couples, there’s something absolutely delicious about the contrast between Ryan’s suited competence and Jameson’s rough around the edges firefighter.

As with most of her recent works, it’s also a two-parter (in a four part series, books three and four are about Olsen, the firefighter who was Kieran Bailey’s roommate and best friend).

I do get that there’re marketing reasons for splitting up books, a lot of readers don’t like overly long text – personally I love a chunky read that I can get deeply into – and this one is a good length at almost 270 pages. If the second book is as long, that’s going to hit around the 500 page mark which I know people do pass up.

But, for me, I’d much rather have both together so I can indulge in the wonderful romance being played out on the page 😁

Blurb

Lieutenant Kieran Bailey never saw his life anywhere but the bustling streets of Chicago—but then again, he never saw his life with a boyfriend, either. That all changed when he fell in love with bombshell CEO Sebastian “Bash” Vogel.

But it’s one thing to fall in love. It’s another to try to build a life together when you live hundreds of miles apart.

How do you choose between everything you’ve ever known and everything you’ve ever dreamed of?

This series must be read in order.
