Rikki’s first love was a firefighter and after he died, she decided to protect her heart by pouring her desires into the novels she writes. When research on her latest book brings her to a firehouse, she’s determined to keep it professional, but these men are too hot and charming to resist. And when firefighters Simon and Carter make it clear they’re willing to help her fulfill her steamiest fantasies, Rikki realizes she’s going to lose more than just her cool.

As Simon and Carter help Rikki unlock her desires, she finds herself falling for both men. But how can she give them her heart when they can’t promise she won’t lose them too?

Heat is an erotic romance from bestselling author Opal Carew.

What’s better than 1 fireman?

2 firemen!!!

Rikki is new to town, after losing the love of her life to a fire and his occupation she decides to search for a change. She finds herself in the small town that her best friend Cassie resides in. Cassie mentions to Rikki about a fireman calendar that would be a perfect start project for pursuing photography. Rikki being the shy closed off woman she is has her doubts she would be good at photographing half-naked men but decides to do it anyway.

She then meets Simon and Carter.

Simon and Carter have been best friends for years. They do everything together and that includes EVERYTHING. When they see Rikki walk through the doors of the bar they know they must have her. But the question is…Which one gets her? Rikki has other plans though, she isn’t going to pick one.

She’s going to choose both.

Opal Carew is amazing when it comes to writing hot steamy sex scenes. The hot factor of this novel was extreme and did not disappoint.


I did have a few issues with this novel. I was intrigued through the first half. I loved how Rikki was sheltered and a tad bit naive, she was the classic virgin. But then somewhere through the novel I started to lose sight of who Rikki was, he character started changing and became wishy-washy. I also disliked how predictable this novel was.

Even though I had a few issues I loved Simon and Carter. They were extremely caring to Rikki and not only her physical needs but also her emotional needs. They also helped her see that the past is able to be left in the past and moving on is not a crime.

Overall, I liked this novel but didn’t love it.

Peace Love and Happy Reading,
