But under his charming, reckless, sexy exterior, Tate's the kind of man who rescues people. Can Emily break her rules enough to learn that she can trust Tate with her heart?

Title: Flirting With Fire - Men of Marietta Book 2 Author: Kate Hardy Publisher: Tule Publishing Published: 3-28-2017 Pages: 166 Genre: Romance Sub-Genre: Westerns; Contemporary Fiction ISBN: 9781945879982 ASIN: B01MUS9SSC Reviewed For NetGalley and Tule Publishing Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.5 Stars When meticulous rule-follower Emily Foster meets adrenaline junkie Lyle Tate, the last thing she wants to do is get involved with him–especially as her twin sister has fallen in love with his older brother.

And will Tate let Emily close enough to learn his deepest, darkest secrets and let her prove to him that he's worthy of love? Emily doesn't have a very high opinion of Tate and Tate is not to sure he wants Emily getting close to who. Each stubbornly believing they know best. These characters are strong willed, intelligent and independent. Showing that they are loyal nearly to a fault. Seeing how previous characters are in an off hand way is always fun. It keeps you feeling as though Marietta, Montana as is in the book is a real place and the characters are real residents. The story presents a place, people and events that you will want to visit often. My rating of "Flirting With Fire" is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. We are back in Marrietta, and we get to meet Charlie's twin Emily, who is the responsible twin. Emily goes to make sure that her sister is doing good, and that Logan is not after her money. She meets Lyle and thinks is shallow, irresponsible and immature. They try to fight attraction and are bickering at each other, until they admit they are going to have an affair. Emily sees a different side to Lyle and she falls in love, but Lyle is scared and does not want to hurt her, and that is what he does. Luckily everything gets resolved.

Lyle Tate is ready to do the sexy calendar shoot as soon as he's asked. Being a risk taker he asks to be Mr. July and volunteers to strip down with only a flag between him and the camera. When Emily Foster hears her sister Charlie is in love and staying Marietta for good she cant believe it and decides to track her down to check it out. When Lyle avoids hitting a dog in the road he splashes through a puddle unintentionally soaking Emily. When Emily shows up to surprises Charlie she is also in for a surprise to find out Lyle is the brother of the man charlie is in love with. Rule following Emily doesn't expect to like Lyle but after they are thrown together she sees a new side to him. This book was a great addition to the Men of Marietta series. I really enjoyed the opposites attract story line. The main character were very likable and easy to root for.

This is the second book in Men of Marietta featuring the sexy first responders. Emily, the rule follower has arrived in Marietta to check up on her twin sister, Charlie, who has met the love of her life, Logan. Emily soon meets Lyle, smoke jumper and younger brother of Logan. Neither are looking for lasting relationship but a fling would be fine in both of their minds. Soon they find they are both opening their hearts with their unhappy upbringings. Are either one willing to make this more than a fling? Loved this story of finding love when you least expect it. Great characters, who are broken but soon are able to help each other. I highly recommend this book. I think you should read the first book in the series first though.

An excellent opposites attract story! Emily Foster arrives in Marietta to check up on her wild and crazy sister Charlie. They may be twins but they couldn't be more different. Charlie was the risk taking wild child, Emily the rule follower, but they love each other fiercely. So when Charlie decides to settle down in Marietta, Emily knew she had to check out the town and the guy her sister was so crazy about. Thankfully she really like Logan. He seems perfect for her sister. His brother Lyle on the other hand has a way of driving Emily crazy. Until he doesn't..... Another entertaining read in this new series. I definitely recommend it.

4.5 - "No regrets and no consequences." Stars! Book Two in the Men of Marietta series; Flirting with Fire gives us Lyle Tate’s story, a man fond of calling the ladies 'Sugar' had me giggling regularly at his sweetness! Ladies man and general good-egg Lyle had me eager to read his story after his inclusion on the first book of the series, his waxing and naked photo-shoot escapades added a few laughs to the story-line his brother took the lead in. But the hints were also there that there is a lot more going on behind the smile with this guy, and I think on the whole Kate Hardy managed to do him justice. "This is just getting something out of our systems. It’s not going to last. It’s not even going to mean anything." The author essentially had the opposite character traits to deal with in this book as her predecessor. Emily Foster is in town to check that the man her sister has fallen in love with, is not just after her money, Logan and Charlotte were the subjects of the first book, and whereas she was free-spirited and he the buttoned up one, we reverse that trend with Lyle being the life and soul, and Emily the glass-half-empty personas this time. Their chemistry again goes from dislike to hot and heavy pretty quickly and again we are left wondering if one of the Foster sisters is going to stay the course. She wanted all of him. The strength of the firefighter, the fearlessness of the smoke jumper, the tenacity of the rancher, the sweetness of the singer… All of him. But for me it was the pasts of the Tate brothers that kept me reading because both Logan and Lyle have a lot of shared past between them, and most of it hasn’t been discussed. I was itching to get to this part of the book because essentially you are looking at two alpha males both trying to deal with things that they went through as kids, and still beating themselves up for their own perceived shortcomings, I was expecting tears, but I didn’t totally get there, mainly because it was dealt with a little too quickly for this readers liking, hence the fact the book was rated half a star less than it’s predecessor. "I don’t make promises." That-said, the first two books from this series have both been read in one sitting, and I have really enjoyed both of them, cannot wait to get my hands on the next book; Daring the Pilot, it’s time for the elusive Jonah Clark to give up his secrets.

I loved Flirting with Fire written by Kate Hardy, the second book in the Men of Marietta series. This is another heart wrenching story featuring people who missed out on the love from their parents. This is Lyle Tate and Emily Foster’s story, their siblings being featured in the first book. Emily comes to Marietta, from London, to check on her twin Charlie and if her love for Logan is true and it is there she meets Lyle, Logan’s younger brother. As these two spend time together they decide to act on the attraction between them by having a fling. However, these two skeptics towards love soon realize that love is what they feel for each other. Emily realizes that, like her parental neglect, Lyle needs to come to terms with thanking his brother for protecting him from their mean, drunk father. The biggest problems for Lyle and Emily are admitting that they love each other and what to do about the distance between their homes. This story really resonated with me, exemplifying that hope and love does exist. Also that there is more than one way to follow one’s passion. Ms Hardy did an outstanding job exemplifying this in her writing and plot line. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

This is the second story in the Men of Marietta series, the first being Tempting the Deputy by Heidi Rice. It continues on from the Bachelor Bake-off series but you don’t need to have read those stories to appreciate this one, though it does mean you know many of the characters and places involved. The key elements for this new series are the hunky first responders – cowboys, firefighters, medics, lawmen, pilots, etc – who are to pose for a calendar to raise money to help fund the development of Harry’s house, a community driven project to honour Harry who was tragically killed whilst trying to help an elderly couple. The project is to develop a safe place for children to go before and after school, a place where they can have support, activities and so much more whenever they need it. This first story tells how the idea of the pin up hotties calendar started and stars Charlie Foster and Logan Tate . . . this one has their siblings as the main characters! Emily Foster is Charlie’s older twin sister and she’s always been the sensible, rule follower – exactly the opposite of Charlie. When Charlie lets her know that she’s fallen in love and going to be staying in Marietta, Emily just has to secretly go to ensure Charlie isn’t being fooled by a money-grabbing man who is out to use her trust fund, something that’s happened to Emily in the past. When she goes for her first walk in the town a driver goes straight through a puddle, drenching Emily in the muddy water. After this inauspicious start, Em discovers that Charlie seems to be liked and appreciated in the town and everyone seems to say good things about the love of her life, too. She goes out to the Double T ranch to surprise Charlie and then discovers that the driver of the vehicle which soaked her is none other than Charlie’s future brother-in-law, Lyle Tate. Lyle has a reputation for being a charming, adrenaline junky who rescues others but he’s anything but charming to Emily – they clash from the outset! However, both have secrets and their attitudes are used to protect their vulnerable hearts. They’re also very attracted to each other! Can they learn to trust each other and their feelings? Will they reveal their secrets and let their love grown and blossom? This is another brilliant addition to the series with great characters, plenty of back story for both main characters and anguish galore before they can achieve their HEA. I’m looking forward to reading more from this series and can’t help be remain impressed with the way the Tule team bring to life Marietta and its inhabitants whilst having a team of authors completing different books in the series – talk about brilliant collaboration and cooperation! I received a copy of this story via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.

Flirting with Fire: A Men of Marietta Romance by Kate Hardy I just love the Tate brothers! If you have read Tempting the Deputy (Logan and Charlie's story), you got to know Lyle since he was Logan's brother. This is Emily Foster and Lyle Tate's story. Lyle has a reputation for being a fun, flirty, and fancy free type guy. Is this the real Lyle or is he using this as a front? Emily comes across as being unapproachable but is she also using that as a front to protect herself from being hurt? The chemistry between Lyle and Emily was off the charts. Is this just a fling or can they let their guards down and take a chance on true love? I loved the flirty banter, sexy and emotional moments. A great fun and entertaining read! This series is a must read! FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Emily Foster has come to Marietta to check on her twin, Charlotte and her love, Logan. She wants to make sure that Charlie is okay. When Em arrives, she has a encounter with a mud puddle thanks to Lyle. When they officially meet, sparks fly. She thinks that he's shallow and he thinks that she's uptight. I loved watching their interaction. It's a mixture of attraction and irritation. Em enjoys the small town friendliness and caring. It's nice to feel part of the community. Lyle is reckless and a flirt. It made me sad that he felt such guilt that he couldn't stop his drunken father from hurting Logan. I wanted Lyle to put the past behind him and get the chance at happiness that he deserved. Em and Lyle both endured painful childhoods. They have a unique bond. Kate Hardy wrote a very special story. This romance was both tender and passionate. Bronte, the rescue pup, added so much cuteness and humor to the story that I had to smile. I'm loving the Men of Marietta series. It's so enjoyable. I received a copy of this book. I voluntarily read Flirting with Fire and my comments are my honest opinion.
