    Fire & Desire

    Summer Jones is a steadfast and feisty college student trying to balance a full plate both on the job and off. As she works part-time as a waitress she runs into Lance Munroe of Munroe Productions. While dealing with Lance's stuck up and rude artist, Monisha, Summer is on the verge of getting fired, losing her apartment and not being able to graduate because of lack of money. Tired of dealing with the likes of rude customers, Summer turns to her ill mother, who ultimately talks sense into Summer about her quick tempered attitude. <BR/><BR/>Thinking that her life is doomed, Lance gives Summer the opportunity of a lifetime to work as his company's PR Consultant. Knowing that this could be the one and only chance of doing what she loves in life, she jumps at the chance to only find herself in love with this self-centered, arrogant man. Should Summer give this love a try? Is it worth the pain she knows will eventually come? <BR/><BR/>Lance Munroe has dealt with snobby and mean people in his business. The wild tempered Summer Jones is one of a kind though. Thinking that she could be an asset to his company, he challenges Summer into dealing with his not so mild tempered artists. Not one to toss his feelings into the fire, Lance keeps his persona cold and businesslike, all the while confused by why he can't keep his mind off of Summer. Can he tame the fire building inside of him or will it erupt into a powerful love volcano? <BR/><BR/>Ms. Powell entangles you into the ecstasy of romance that takes place in both Chicago and Jamaica. If this romance doesn't make you tingle I don't know what will. <BR/><BR/>Reviewed by: LaDonna

    Skip it

    This book was somewhat annoying. The description of the main character was a contradiction of her behavior. The dialogue was immature for the age group of the characters. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    Ok

    Pretty good storyline. I really liked Lance, and the characters were pretty well developed. I had trouble liking Summer, she was such an immature brat. I understand the whole 'need to be independent' thing, but when you're a 24 year old woman with years of college behind you, you should be mature enough to handle situations without the childish temper tantrums. Her attitude just didn't sit right with me. Still an ok read.

    Very good read.

    Summer Jones is a young, serious college student striving to finish her thesis for her Masters. Bad luck befalls her and an unlikely ally swoops in to help her, and sweep her off her feet. They are a combo of spicey and serious, spitfire and control hungry. All in all, a great read. At 500 pages it is a good length with plenty of plot so that you feel the characters personalities.

    I couldn't finish this book. It was so boring in the beginning. I couldn't get into it to stay with it. maybe it gets better as it goes but it is 500 pages I just couldn't go any farther. I got to maybe 200 waiting for something to grab me. I was left bored and not really caring about the characters.

    Boring

    The main character acts like a child. I couldn't get into this story or bring myself to like any of the characters. Deleted this waste of time and space.

    Bad! The book overall was written from the point of view of a very immature person. The descriptions of Summer did not match her actions....I just don't understand how a book worm who didn't even know who the hottest musical bombshell of the time was could be so good at her PR job at a music production company! What is up with that attitude....it came from nowhere and got her nowhere. The characters all were very flawed and the author went through situations so FAST that you had to re-read just to make sure you didn't overlook something. This book was very weak at best. I am glad that it was free. I am not going to purchase the other books in the series. I regret writing this review in such a negative manner because I know everyone has a dream and I know what it takes to write, but wow this was a big disappointment!
