From USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard...sometimes the only way forward is into the flames ...

To his wildfire hotshot crew, he's Rollo. Firefighter, loyal friend, lifesaver. To his family, he's Rollington Wareham III, black sheep and heir to a banking fortune. But now that he's turned thirty, Rollo knows his days of firefighting and freedom are over. He has responsibilities. Duties. Goodbye hotshots, hello boardroom-and a socially acceptable bride. This is absolutely the worst time to realize just how sexy and adorable his good friend Brianna is.

Put her in a garden with some plants, and Brianna Gallagher knows just what to do. Send her on a date with an attractive man and things get awkward. Epically awkward. It's a good thing she and Rollo are such great friends. It would be a total disaster if she started noticing his ripped physique and sculpted muscles. Kissing him is a definite no-no. As for falling into bed ... well, that might be okay as long as they both know it's a limited time deal. She doesn't belong in his world, and he can't stay in hers. No matter how much she's falling for him.

But fate has a way of changing people's plans. When a family crisis follows Rollo to Jupiter Point, he turns to the one woman he trusts above all others. Throw in a disastrous visit to Manhattan, a bride hunt, and the world's most awkward crush, and it will take a miracle to bring them together. Or a shocking event that puts Brianna's life at risk ...

A hotshot firefighter and the lowly gardener that the love web brings together. A normal love story about a rich man tired of the parties and other things expected of him and lowly gardener that citizens of Jupiter Point are setting him up to date. There is a chapter that tests their feelings.

Into The Flames by Jennifer Bernard is a fantastic contemporary romance. Ms. Bernard has provided readers with a well-written book that is loaded with fun, lovable characters. Brianna is a landscaper with a bubbly personality but she's awkward at times. Rollo is working as a wildfire hotshot but is also rich. Rollo and Brianna's story is loaded with drama, laugh out loud humor, sexy bits and a bit of suspense and action. I enjoyed reading Into The Flames and look forward to my next book by Jennifer Bernard. Into The Flames is book 3 of the Jupiter Point Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Rollo and Brianna, what can I say? The book opens with them realizing that they are, for the third time, each other’s blind date. Luckily, they are such good friends that they laugh it off and then go have dinner, completely at ease in each other’s company. They hatch a plan to help each other get the attention of their individual crush, but soon find that the person right in front of them may be the one for them. Unfortunately, there is no future for them, Rollo’s time is up and it is time for him to return to New York and start working on his family obligations, including marrying a suitable woman (yes, his mother is working on that), Of course, Briannah is no where near “suitable” enough for a Wareham. This book was so much fun. I loved Rollo and Brianna, they were both so down to earthand real, I could see being friends with them or hanging out. The secondary characters, especially Rollo’s sister, combine to move the story along and provide more laugh out loud moments. There is so much that is good about this book, I am scared to say too much so I don’t ruin someone’s chance to experience it for themselves. Jennifer Bernard has created a wonderfully fun small town with Jupiter Point, and spiced it up by adding the hotshots to the town. This is my new favorite read of hers, or, at least, until the next one comes out. **I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Copy provided by the Publisher.

Sometimes the me we want to be is not the me we were born to be. Such is the case with Rollo “Ironman” Wareham, or more accurately Rollington Wareham III. To the Jupiter Point Hotshot crew he is one of them. To his wealthy New York family he’s the black sheep that refuses to toe the family line. Brianna Gallagher is much more at home with her garden than she is with people. Despite being “set up” by several members of the Jupiter Point community, she and Rollo are just friends, right? Things change in an instant when he kisses her. Suddenly their uncomplicated friendship is far more complicated. As Rollo tries to navigate the world of expectations, Brianna is his port in the storm. With the support of each other, Bri and Rollo break free of the bonds they’ve created for themselves and figure out how to be the me they were meant to be while still meeting the expectations of those around them. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Into the Flames is the 3rd book in the Jupiter Point series by Jennifer Bernard. We are finally getting a closer look at Rollo, the gentle giant, the hotshot that had appearances in Set The Night on Fire and Burn So Bright! Rollo and Brianne, the local green thumb, have become close friends since the Hotshots set up shop in Jupiter Point and they decide to help each other catch the eye of their crushes. Little did they know by doing that, they would catch each others eye. The strong friendship between these two and how they would do anything to help each other out is shown throughout the book, which made me love them together even more. The flaming hot love scenes was an added bonus to this story.

Into the Flames is the third in Jennifer Bernard’s Jupiter Point Series and might just be my favorite so far. It is a quick read and hard to put down. The story keeps the reader engaged throughout the entire book. This book centers on Rollo and Brianna who are best friends and slow to realize that they are perfect for each other. I loved both Rollo and Brianna but especially Rollo. He might just be my new book boyfriend! This story has it all- a sweet romance, humor, sexy firefighters, and a touch of danger. Ms. Bernard does such a great job giving you background information from the previous books that this can be read as a stand-alone book. I highly recommend both this book and this series. You don’t want to miss it!

I heart Jupiter Point!! This is the third book in the Hotshot series. Rollo has two sides, the wild mountain or the privileged side but he wants to the the mountain side. Brianna has one side, the down to earth side. They have always been friends, now for three weeks they will be friends with benefits but will the three weeks be enough. Rollo is from New York and his mom is out to find him the perfect acceptable bride, which he has a hard time with since his heart belongs to Brianna. Rollo is willing to give up everything with his family to follow his heart. Brianna is a good doer and is happy with her life in Jupiter Point, she has the perfect family. Everyone loves her! This is book that I could not put down, friends to lovers is the perfect read for me. This is a steamy romance that will melt your heart too. I can't wait to read Finn's story next. I highly recommend this book alone with the rest of the Jupiter Point stories.

Wow! Amazing! I absolutely LOVED the way Jennifer Bernard envisioned this novel. I felt as though I was actually "in" the novel at times. I see a lot of Bri in myself. She's funny, quirky, strong-willed, a hard worker, and ALWAYS the friend. But Bri is also very insecure. She wants her HEA, just like her two best friends. So she sets her sights on Finn. Rollo, a hotshot and friend to Bri, informs Bri that he has a crush on Merry. So Bri and Rollo hatch a plan "guaranteed" to get their crushes to date them. What they don't expect, is the jealousy they experience when they are out camping together. Rollo doesn't like Bri's flirting with Finn and does everything he can to avoid confronting his feelings. When Bri's life is threatened, all bets are off! One kiss leads to another that eventually leads to a fling--with an expiration date. Rollo is a millionaire with obligations. He loves the thrill of being a hotshot, but promised his family he would devote his life to the family business after he turned thirty. He's tried avoiding his family obligations because he's NOT a suit kind of guy. When he learns his sister has run away to him, he has no choice but to face his family. This novel has soooo many parts that come into play that it keeps you engaged! There's suspense, romance, teen troubles, family obligations, and more. I loved Bri's sass and vulnerability. She rambles when she's nervous, she's pixie-like in her appearance, but sexy at the same time. She's easy to commensurate with because we've all felt we weren't "good enough" or worthy of love, happiness. I LOVED how patient, kind, and supportive Rollo was of Bri. I could easily picture a big, teddy bear of a man engulfing Bri with his love. I highly recommend this novel! It is the third in the series, but can be read as a stand alone without feeling lost. I read a gifted copy and all opinions expressed are my own.

This is the third installment of Ms Bernard's Jupiter Point series. Rollo did not really jump out to me in the prior two books so I was very unsure about reading his story in Into The Flames. Would I like his character more? Well after reading this book I loved Rollington "Rollo" Wareham III! He is such a complex, caring man! He loves firefighting, but knows he will have to go back to the family business at age 30. And that time is looming fast. Enter his friend Brianna. He is trying to help her get together with another Hotshot Finn. Brianna is another complex character with Finn she is a babbling ackward woman, but around Rollo she is at ease. Their story was so romantic! The surrounding characters added so much to this book. I found one of Jennifer Bernard's books when I got my first tablet. I read that book and was hooked. She is a must read author for me! I have enjoyed each and every book I have read. And this story is no exception. Please take a chance on new authors as I did and you might be very surprised! “I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review.”

Rollingham "Rollo" Wareham is one of Jupiter Point's original hot shots. Brianna Gallagher is his closest friend next to his fellow hotshots. They've been good friends ever since he came to town. They decide to be each other's wingman while trying to set things up with both of their secret crushes. The only problem with that is everyone around them can see how much they belong together, even if they are blind to it. A series of events leads them down the path of acknowledging their mutual attraction. The only problem with that is the fact that he promised his family he would give up his hotshot career and go into the family business, as well as marrying the "right" girl. Bri throws a total monkey wrench into his plans when she makes him want things he never thought he could have. I've loved Rollo since he popped up in the other Jupiter Point books. I couldn't wait to read his story, and this totally did not disappoint. I would recommend it to anyone.

I truly loved Into the Flames by Jennifer Bernard, the third book in her Jupiter Point series. This series feature the Jupiter Point Hotshots, a crew of wildfire fighters. In this story we meet firefighter Rollo Wareham, a gentle giant who is friends with Brianna Gallagher, Jupiter Point native, gardener, and all round do-gooder. The life he enjoys in Jupiter Point is about to end as he is being forced to return to his family responsibilities, in the boardroom in New York and a socially acceptable bride. Brianna is comfortable with Rollo but send her on a date with an attractive man and she starts acting awkward and tongue tied. I loved the how Ms. Bernard manipulated the characters to go from friends to lovers, not wanting to separated. She also illustrated to her readers, and characters that one should not settle just because you believe you are doing the right thing when it’s definitely not. Lessons can often be learned the hard way. It’s okay to pursue your dreams by finding ways to compromise expectations of others. I loved this fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written, authentic and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book, and all others previously written by Jennifer Bernard to all readers and I cannot wait for the next story in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

In my experience the most satisfying romantic relationships have the thrill of passion but also enjoy the familiarity of time spent with someone who is also your best friend and confidant. I think it's the number one reason why the friends-to lovers trope remains one of the most popular themes in romantic fiction today. I like to think the journey is like a blindfolded hike on a very crooked path up a very steep hill during a solar eclipse. There will always be some misleading signs and stumbles along the way that cause heavy breathing, sweating and heart palpitations that are symptoms often hilariously misunderstood by both parties before the confusion passes and the sun comes out again. I found this storyline entertaining but I would have liked less emphasis on Brianna's awkwardness and more passion and a deeper emotional bond between them that I found so very compelling between the other couples in the first two books in the series. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

After having read all of Jennifer Bernard’s books, with this being my third Jupiter Point read, I have to say that Into the Flames is my favorite of all. There’s something about both Rollo and Brianna that will just grab you right from page one….although the cover isn’t too shabby, either. Reading about Rollo (or Rollington Wareham III as he was named at birth) and his family obligations, which for the most part he’s kept from his friends in the hotshot crew, will tug at your heart. Yes, he’s a poor not-so-little rich guy hiding in plain sight however he is truly an amazing guy, heart of gold, great friend and just a good person. Brianna Gallagher is JUST as amazing and even with her personal hang ups and all in her head issues? She is still strong and I would love to have her as a friend. This story had me laughing and sniffling and yelling, sometimes all at the same time. I truly enjoyed it and was engaged from start to finish. I won’t tell you much about the story but Rollo’s family? Hooboy. Brianna’s family? So loving and fun. Their friends? Crazy loons, all! Really, grab this read; you won’t be sorry. It is a standalone however it has characters from previous books and having read those books made it all the more enjoyable for me. Rollo’s and Bri’s HEA is the best. In case you haven’t guessed, I highly recommend.

Loved this third book in the Jupiter Point Hotshot series. Rollo Wareham has been dreading the day he turns 30 and has to give up his Hotshot position to return home and take his place in the family business. Leaving his job will be hard enough, leaving Brianna will be harder still. Brianna is his best friend but he wishes they could be so much more. Unfortunately his family would never accept her and he would never expect her to deal with them. Sometimes though you just need to hold on and have a little faith to find the way to have what you really want in life! This one is very well done and not to be missed. I highly recommend it.

"Into the Flames" is written by Jennifer Bernard, and it is the 3rd book in her Jupiter Point series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Rollo Wareham, III and Brianna Gallagher. I found this story refreshing! The storyline might be similar to other books where the hero is wealthy and the heroine is not. But what I enjoyed about this story is Rollo and Brianna's relationship is sincere and genuine. They really were great friends, and while they both were looking for love in other places, they didn't realize what was right in front of them. I think what stood out to me was the beginning of this story when they both realized they were each other's blind dates for the 3rd time! Their friends were really trying to set them up! That right there should have clued them in that maybe they're good for each other! In my mind, that scene set the tone in how this book will be and how they're relationship is. You could see their chemistry! Rollo and Brianna made a great couple. They were hot! They understood each other, and they supported one another. They both had their quirks, which I found endearing. Brianna is clumsy and can get nervous easily, but Rollo loves that about her. That's his Brianna! But Rollo has obligations to his family now. He just turned 30. He has to quit his job as part of the wildfire hotshot crew to fulfill what he promised to his family. He doesn't want to marry who his mom is trying to set him up with, and he's made it clear to his mom that he will be staying in California and not move back to New York. Brianna knows Rollo comes from money, but after a trip in New York, she realizes she wouldn't be able to fit in with his family's lifestyle. But what happens when Rollo's sister runs away? Can Rollo and Brianna look past his wealth and give love a chance? I have nothing, but praise for this book! "Into the Flames" was very well-written, and I didn't want it to end! Really looking forward to reading Josh's story next!

In the third instalment of Jennifer Bernard’s fabulous Jupiter Point series, we get to get better acquainted with Rollo Wareham. Although we had met him briefly in the previous books, I didn’t know what to expect of his story, and Ms. Bernard made it a terrific one. Brianna Gallagher and Rollo have been very good friends for a while, and although Rollo comes to think there could have been more, his family situation makes it just about impossible: Brianna would not fit in, and truth be told, he would do that to a friend; his family is impossible and too snobbish for Brianna. Rollo has a riveting backstory, and sweet, darling Brianna is a hopeless klutz, has no fashion sense, puts her foot in her mouth, babbles ceaselessly, and also has a heart that is as big as the heavens. Rollo and Brianna are friends, they really enjoy each other’s company, but they don’t perceive them as romantic feelings, until they realise that they do, which comes about rather by accident. They both have crushes on other people, which nobody knows about, and friends are always matching them together. After one of those failed blind dates where they’ve been set up, they agree to help each other win over their respective crushes. That’s when Rollo begins to think that maybe Brianna is more than his friend. Alas, there is no place for Brianna in his upper crust family. Rollo and Brianna are both lovely people, and INTO THE FLAMES is a wonderful romance, but at times, my heart broke for Brianna, because of Rollo’s attitude towards his parents. Now, I’ll be even more hard-pressed when the time comes to choose a favourite book in this fabulous series, because INTO THE FLAMES is such a great story with very complex characters. It is very well written, with no boring bits, and there is so much fun to be had. Jennifer Bernard has given us another fabulous book, and now waiting for the next one! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
