Firecracker: A contemporary romance by Kelly Jamieson


Will you give in to the spark?

Firecracker by Kelly Jamieson is now available!


Arden Lennox’s charmed life may be in pieces, but she’d sooner get her hoohaw bleached than move back in with her parents. She’s no longer the prom-queen princess married to the football star. She’s a broke, penniless widow, and it’s time she stood on her own two feet.An under-construction unit in a quaint Chicago brownstone is cheap (free), but it comes with an unexpected surprise. Tyler Ramirez, her brother’s gawky high school best friend, is now a smoking hot firefighter who spends most of his spare time in her unit hammering, drilling, and screwing. Usually with his shirt off—a temptation she has no intention of indulging.

Tyler can’t believe his high school crush is living right across the hall, or how fast his fierce lust for her comes blazing back. She’s still gorgeous—a little sadder, a little quieter, but still with the amazing smile and sweet body that fueled his awkward teenage fantasies.

Despite her best intentions, Arden can’t resist grown up Tyler but the sparks between them send her into full retreat. And by the time she realizes the heat between them could last a lifetime, it could be too late to tell him…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, so here’s the thing about this story … it’s a lot more than just a romance journey. It’s a journey of self-discovery and second chances and growth for our leading lady, Arden Lennox. She captured my heart from the very beginning and just stayed there. Life can side-swipe you when you least expect it and her life pretty much got hit head on by a semi-truck. But she picked herself up and went looking for her new path. And in looking for that path she meets, or rather notices, our leading man, Tyler Ramirez. She knew him as a boy but he’s a man now and may possibly be the man she holds hands with to walk this next path in her life *shrug* You’ll have to read the story to find out 🙂

This is a *happy sigh* kind of story. It’s not action packed or unpredictable, but it’s full heart and will put a smile on your face. Or maybe that’s just me LOL I should also point out that the secondary characters add not only humor to the story but depth. It’s a great group of family/friends I’m hoping might get their own stories in the future!
