Publisher's Summary

He sets women ablaze, but the only one he needs may be fireproof.

Humiliated by her cheating ex, control freak Mel Thompson has resolved to avoid sex and romance. But her plans skid off the rails on her birthday, when she overindulges in champagne and tries to seduce her best friend, Adam Caras, exposing her long-repressed attraction to him. She's determined to remain just friends, but her erotic fantasies have other ideas....

Firefighter Adam Caras has seduced more women than he'd ever admit to, earning the nickname "the Arsonist", thanks to his explosive sensuality. Unfortunately, he realized he's in love with his best friend, Mel, five minutes after she hooked up with her sleazebag ex. For two years, he's kept his true feelings a secret. His libido, on the other hand...not so easy to rein in. Now that she's free, he has a plan of his own. He'll win her heart the only way he knows how - in bed - by employing every weapon in his lady-killer arsenal.

As best friends become lovers, they must risk everything for a chance at happiness. If they can overcome their past mistakes before it tears them apart....

Fired Up is an award-winning, best-selling contemporary romance from Anna Durand, author of the Hot Scots series.

Mel & Adam deserve 5 stars!!

Best friends to lovers romance. So damn good!
Probably my favorite book of Anna's right now. I absolutely loved Mel and Adam's friendship. I loved how much they care for each other so much that they are afraid to take that leap and screw up their friendship even though they want each other so desperately. Adam is very protective of Mel and that shows in the very beginning of this book after Mel's birthday celebration. Oh man, when the walls come down, the heat level is off the charts! I loved this book so much I listened twice!
Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton were perfect for Mel and Adam!

Friends to lovers worth the risk!

I listened to this book with the previous narrator last year and gave it 4 stars. Mel has been burned and is very hesitant to embrace her feelings and risk losing her best friend. She is confused and afraid. The story is well written and I was engaged in the outcome. I identified more with Adam, who is an excellent book boyfriend - Who doesn’t love a sexy fireman who is attentive, fun, funny, head over heels in love, and determined to satisfy his best friend! Friends to lovers is a favorite trope. Once again I enjoyed the story.

While the previous narrator was definitely not bad at all, Teddy and Mackenzie are simply amazing! It was like listening to a whole new book this time! In fact, I forgot I had listened to it before until I referenced my #faveylist & Goodreads. This refresh has elevated the book to 5 stars - I really enjoyed their performances and found I was much more immersed in the story. I am definitely #NarratorMotivated!

I received an #AdvancedListenerCopy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

not her best writing

I don't like YA romance for the same reason I didn't like this story-immature people trying to find a HEA is sooo tiresome. If you are near 30, you should be a bit aware and consider other people. This story lacked a cohesiveness to the plot; why wasn't the other friend pulled in more? what made Mel such a workaholic? etc. It seemed a formula designed to frame the sex - which wasn't bad to be fair.

Great Friends to Lovers Romance!

Mel and Adam's best friends to lovers romance is fun, sweet, steamy, and heartwarming. Mel is sassy, and smart. Adam, a handsome firefighter, is sexy, and charming. They are opposites attract. They share an undeniable and sizzling hot chemistry. The supporting characters are great. Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton did an amazing job with the narration. This is a great best friends to lovers romance, and I enjoyed it.

Love those firefighters!

Firefighters make the best book boyfriends, and Adam is swoony! Mel and Adam are best friends. After being burned by her cheating ex, she has sworn off men. But Adam has had feelings for her for a while and has different plans for their future. This friends to lovers romance is everything I love. Adam is nothing short of persistent in his mission to win Mel’s heart. With his playboy reputation who needs mount the obstacles Mel has put in their way, and I love their romantic journey. Anna Durand’s style of writing always keeps me captivated and wins my heart. Adam and Mel’s blazing story is found it’s place immediately and I couldn’t wait to see how long it would take to finally win her over!

Durand always finds the perfect fit for her narrations and her picks of Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright were spot on! Hamilton has a warm, conversational style that always has me falling for his characters. He knows exactly how to win me over with inflections and emotions. Cartwright is a favorite of mine, and she plays Mel to a tee! A little angst, a lot of passion and incredible love, she knows exactly how to make her characters come alive. It’s a fabulous performance!
