Into The Flames
Absolutely fell in love with this story! I was thrilled when the characters hooked up but my stomach was in knots about their future. I related too easily with Brianna and it kept me praying for a HEA.
By Great super duper book!!!
The synopsis sounded great, but the results sucked. The characters were so shallow and there wasn’t really a plot. There was no real resolution either. Really lacking in this book.
Thoroughly enjoyed it
Into the flames
The story line is good. This should have a “Mature” rating. I had to skip the graphic sex scenes. I don’t need to read all that crap.
Into the Flames
This is a fantastic story! Brianna, Jupiter's Point landscape designer is absolutely adorable. Her clumsy, awkward and "ordinary" way is so sweetly complimented by Rollo's tough, rough mountain-man hotshot persona. Their story is sweet, tender, electric and has you hoping for a HEA even when their social status is a big bump in the road.
The other residents of Jupiter Point play important roles in this book as well. You catch up to what is going on with everyone especially, ninety year old Old Man Turner. Brianna's friendship with him gives her some much need solace when things go haywire around her, until he goes missing and a strange man is in garden shed.
In this book, you are introduced the Rollington Wareham the Third's family and his NYC life. It is a life that he doesn't want but can not deny his responsibility to them, the family company and his past mistakes. His younger sister, Sydney stirs up trouble as she also pushes back against the family. Brianna sees that the fourteen year old girl is troubled and befriends her during her unauthorized visit to Jupiter Point.
This story tugs on you on your heartstrings with many of the characters so be prepared. I consider this book a must read!
Up in Flames
By TR / Blonde Betty
Sometimes the me we want to be is not the me we were born to be. Such is the case with Rollo “Ironman” Wareham, or more accurately Rollington Wareham III. To the Jupiter Point Hotshot crew he is one of them. To his wealthy New York family he’s the black sheep that refuses to toe the family line. Brianna Gallagher is much more at home with her garden than she is with people. Despite being “set up” by several members of the Jupiter Point community, she and Rollo are just friends, right? Things change in an instant when he kisses her. Suddenly their uncomplicated friendship is far more complicated. As Rollo tries to navigate the world of expectations, Brianna is his port in the storm. With the support of each other, Bri and Rollo break free of the bonds they’ve created for themselves and figure out how to be the me they were meant to be while still meeting the expectations of those around them.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
The third book in the Jupiter Point series follows Rollo and Brianna. Both are interested in other people, and while they try to help the other gain the attention of their respective crush, they start to fall for each other. I enjoyed the banter between these two, and how they were friends first before they were anything else. I recommend this book, and can't wait for what's next in the series.
Hot Firefighter Loves Pixie
Wow! Amazing! I absolutely LOVED the way Jennifer Bernard envisioned this novel. I felt as though I was actually "in" the novel at times. I see a lot of Bri in myself. She's funny, quirky, strong-willed, a hard worker, and ALWAYS the friend. But Bri is also very insecure. She wants her HEA, just like her two best friends. So she sets her sights on Finn.
Rollo, a hotshot and friend to Bri, informs Bri that he has a crush on Merry. So Bri and Rollo hatch a plan "guaranteed" to get their crushes to date them. What they don't expect, is the jealousy they experience when they are out camping together. Rollo doesn't like Bri's flirting with Finn and does everything he can to avoid confronting his feelings. When Bri's life is threatened, all bets are off! One kiss leads to another that eventually leads to a fling--with an expiration date.
Rollo is a millionaire with obligations. He loves the thrill of being a hotshot, but promised his family he would devote his life to the family business after he turned thirty. He's tried avoiding his family obligations because he's NOT a suit kind of guy. When he learns his sister has run away to him, he has no choice but to face his family.
This novel has soooo many parts that come into play that it keeps you engaged! There's suspense, romance, teen troubles, family obligations, and more. I loved Bri's sass and vulnerability. She rambles when she's nervous, she's pixie-like in her appearance, but sexy at the same time. She's easy to commensurate with because we've all felt we weren't "good enough" or worthy of love, happiness. I LOVED how patient, kind, and supportive Rollo was of Bri. I could easily picture a big, teddy bear of a man engulfing Bri with his love. I highly recommend this novel! It is the third in the series, but can be read as a stand alone without feeling lost. I read a gifted copy and all opinions expressed are my own.
Into The Flames
I loved this story so much!!!!! It has everything a great story should have, there is humor, a little mystery, great friends and family and a happy Ever After!! Brianna and Rollo are the best of couples, he is a hotshot hero and Brianna is quirky and goofy and made just for him. He loves her with all her quirks and crazy fashion sense. He will even give up his inheritance if that's what it takes for Bri to be his true love for a lifetime. I loved Brianna, she was just like me a little awkward and clumsy but oh so lovable!! She would do anything for anyone, she befriended everyone she met! And Rollo was this tall handsome guy who always made her feel special and loved. I loved how there story unfolded, how they went from friends to lovers!! Jennifer Bernard has an amazing gift of telling a love story that you can believe in, I am a fan for life!!
Rollo & Bri's story
By Eileen A-W
I truly loved Into the Flames by Jennifer Bernard, the third book in her Jupiter Point series. This series feature the Jupiter Point Hotshots, a crew of wildfire fighters. In this story we meet firefighter Rollo Wareham, a gentle giant who is friends with Brianna Gallagher, Jupiter Point native, gardener, and all round do-gooder. The life he enjoys in Jupiter Point is about to end as he is being forced to return to his family responsibilities, in the boardroom in New York and a socially acceptable bride. Brianna is comfortable with Rollo but send her on a date with an attractive man and she starts acting awkward and tongue tied.
I loved the how Ms. Bernard manipulated the characters to go from friends to lovers, not wanting to separated. She also illustrated to her readers, and characters that one should not settle just because you believe you are doing the right thing when it’s definitely not. Lessons can often be learned the hard way. It’s okay to pursue your dreams by finding ways to compromise expectations of others.
I loved this fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written, authentic and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book, and all others previously written by Jennifer Bernard to all readers and I cannot wait for the next story in this series.
