Still bitter about his failed engagement and life on the family ranch, Ian MacKenzie has been cranky for nearly three years. His brother Mack’s married bliss hasn’t helped, and now his pregnant sister-in-law’s airhead best friend is coming for a visit.
Candice arrives to help with the new baby, even though it means swapping her Louboutins for snow boots and her flat irons for flannel. She’s far from prepared for the freezing cold and she certainly wasn’t expecting the sizzling heat of her attraction to a certain green-eyed cowboy. Ian may be rude and infuriating, but he looks sinfully good in those jeans of his.
The two clash at every turn, but there’s one thing they can both agree on—if they do give in to their undeniable chemistry, then it’s just a fling…because he’s a country boy and she’s a city girl, and their zip codes are on opposite sides of the map.

MacKenzie Fire is the sequel book to Shine Not Burn and it was hilarious. I laughed so hard that I had tears running down my face. Any book that can do that for me is a winner In my eyes. Ian is sexy and charming when he wants to be. In the first part of the book Ian is a bit bitter. He let his ex pretty much run his life right down to what degree he got in college and the career he was going to take so when she did him dirty and they ended it left him angry and lost as to what he wants to do with his life. When Candice started to bring him out of his pity party he was very sweet and fun. OMG I adored Candice. She is such a playful goof and maybe a touch ditzy. She is outgoing, sassy, and a little crazy! Loyal and all heart I fell in love with Candice's character. The book is from her POV and she is freaking hilarious. She loves to Google everything and isn't afraid to use her googled knowledge to solve all problems. She is very up front she just tells Ian and everyone else what she thinks. Candice is going on my favorite heroine list because she was so different and flippin Awesome! Candice didn't take any of Ian's grumpy attitude so their bickering was too funny. So was their wars The snow fight, and the repeated toilet flushing while Ian is in the shower had me in tears. The way Ian kept getting busted by his mom OMG so good!! I loved getting to see Andie, Mack and the family some more. I would have liked to get a little bit more of a epilogue since this is the last book in the series, but I still loved the hell outta this series! This book is such a sweet, light hearted, and funny read. I enjoyed it so much. *ARC Kindly Provided By Netgalley In Exchange For An Honest Review* Check out my blog for my full review on this book at http://jessicasoverthetopbookobsession.blogspot.com/2015/08/mackenzie-fire.html
I haven’t laughed so much reading a book in a good while. 4% into it and I already had tears in my eyes from laughing so much. And I loved the fact it kept making me laughing the more I read. I was laughing more and more with every passing chapter. There was one down for me though. It took me a while to feel Candice and Ian’s connection. Candice is a successful hair dresser from Florida who goes on vacation to the middle of nowhere to be there for her best friend’s delivery. She’s hilarious all through the book and she seriously made the book for me. Ian got on my nerve with his never ending self-pity party. I didn’t like him much at the beginning, but he made up for it along the book. I didn’t love him, but I didn’t hate him either. Ian and Candice don’t have that obvious attraction thing. It’s a subtle slow burn while they antagonize each other. Their fights were hilarious. In fact, the whole book was hilarious and although the story didn’t make much for me, I’m still giving it a rounded up four star rating because I haven’t laughed that hard in a good while.
5 - "Some people are just clueless." Stars! This series literally came out of left field, took me for a horse-back ride, it made me cry with laughter, wet myself with laughter, and generally gave me all sorts of good times. I think it takes an author with a lot of skill to write such a character as Candice and keep her entertaining without veering into the annoying. ”Go away I’m unconscious right now.” Her inner monologue alone was the stuff of comedy gold, add into it the escapades she gets up to with Ian and the general mayhem that seemed to follow her around, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this book. ”Whack the kitty.” Elle Casey with this series has moved from an unknown to an unforgettable author to me.
