Title: Up in Flames (Flirting with Fire #2)
Author: Jennifer Blackwood
Stars: 3 1/2
Jennifer Blackwood tries hard to create sexual tension between Sloane and Reece though snide remarks but instead it comes off childish and a little immature. The story isn't any special and the many times I flipped though the pages because the story didn't seem to be moving forward.
The princess dog was a nice touch and brought some fun moments to the story.
All in all it is a typical romance with two people who act more like children in adult form.
The side story about who is setting the fires and the people who are found in them was interesting.

Sloane Garcia has butted heads with Reece Jenkins ever since he was a colossal jerk of epic proportions on a night she’d rather forget. So what if he’s overconfident, ultramasculine, and hard muscled? When she finds out he’s on the auction block at the annual firefighter’s charity event, she decides to give this cocky firefighter a dose of his own medicine. Now that she’s won the hunk, he’s on call—to do whatever Sloane wants.
Sure, Reece and Sloane had a rocky start, but he had his reasons. None of that matters now that he’s the bachelor at her beck and call, tasked with granting her four wishes in four weeks. He runs into burning buildings for a living, but nothing will be as tough as dousing the flames Sloane ignites in him. What started out as just a game might end up with Reece losing the one thing he swore he’d never give up: his heart.
