I’ve read all previous books in this series and love reading this author, but this one just wasn’t for me. I couldn’t really connect with characters and I constantly felt like something is missing. Also, there was lots of repetition. Harlow’s inner monoluge was just running around in circles about the same thing. There were many things that could have been used for creating more drama between Max and Harlow, but in the end is was just about Max convincing Harlow to give them a chance. I still recommend this series and look forward to reading the next book. This one just didn’t keep my attention and interest. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This is book 8 in the Into the Fire series and it features and Max and Harlow. Harlow is still mentally dealing with things from her past. Max really has his work cut out for him. The steam factor is OFF THE CHARTS with these two. I love it when the man appears to falls harder and faster. This is another fabulous story set in Willowbrook, Alaska. As usual in this series, ALL the characters are amazing and the story lines have a natural flow. I can’t wait for more!
Lord have mercy... Have mercy on me because I want more time to read. I've been devouring books non stop and I can't get enough. And guess what? I have a new book... A new book... Oh boy. I was waiting for a book from this author for a while now and I couldn't start it fast enough. J.H. Croix is the best. Her writing is raw and intense, full of love, desire and so much more. I can't possibly explain the good it feels to read a book from her. Melt With You is her latest release and it's the eight book from the Into The Fire series. But I need to tell you something. Despite the fact that all books are standalones I totally advise you to read all books in order. By doing so, you will be able to know every character and understand this series better. In case you don't want to read all books, a shame if you ask me, read Harlow and Max first and them dig in. This new book explores the lifes of Harlow and Max. Harlow is a hotshot firefighter that lives and loves her job and her friends. She's sassy and doesn't take shi*** from no-one. She was hurt in the past and that made her not trust that easily. One night stand with a stunning man was all she was looking for but one year later... Max is the ultimate playboy. He's a one night stand kind of guy but one look at a stunning woman at his best friends wedding and he almost changed his mind... One year after this encounter these two meet again and now... Jesus... Jesus... What was that? The plot is perfect, very well written, super engaging and detailed. The interaction between the characters is super intense and hot as hell. Dayum.... The way this story progressed left me wanting to read non stop. Each chapter ended in a way that made me keep reading and reading. This story gave us love, friendship, desire as well as distrust, lies and so much more. And girls... We are presented with some steamy scenes... Oh boy. It was amazing to read form other characters from previous books. It was amazing to see a bit more about them. It made me want to read this series all over again. J.H. Croix... You nailed it. I loves this book and I can't wait to read a bit more. Please say that we will have more... Please... I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

starsHe asks "What do you do?" she responds "I'm a hotshot firefighter" I received an ARC and am voluntarily reviewing it. Another melting story for this series. I love that each book can be read alone but I find the whole series so enjoyable I recommend reading them all. In this one, Harlow is type daughter of a rich investor but chooses to be a hotshot firefighter, for which her father cuts her off. Max is a successful businessman who has learned that girls only want him for his money, so he is not into relationships. They meet because their best friends, Owen and Ivy, get married. Owen and Ivy invite Max and Harlow to stay at their house while they go on their honeymoon, but fail to advise either of them that they were both invited. Max makes a popistion to Harlow which she takes a chance on since he says no expectations. This is a must read to find out what happens afterwards when they don't see each other for about another year.

Harlow is a firefighter and a little gun shy when it comes to men. Max is a billionaire that has worked hard to get where he is. They meet at a friend's wedding and share an amazing night together. They never expected to run into each other again but a few years later sparks are still flying between them when they run into one another again. Neither is interested in a relationship however they can't seem to stop thinking about each other. Can Harlow show Max that she is different from the other women he has known? Will Max finally admit he has feeling for Harlow? This is a great story once I started it I couldn't put it down. The chemistry between Max and Harlow is off the charts hot. This is a well written and very entertaining story. I would recommend this book to any book lover. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

SIZZLING!!! Wow! Talk about one hot number. This is one action packed, fast paced, hard hitting, heart pounding, pulse racing, smooth flowing, page turning tale that's as riveting as it is captivating. The drama, steam, heartache, fear and suspense increases and tension soars as the plot thickens. All the twists and turns, unexpected circumstances and unpredictable surprises around every corner make for remarkable experience. The two main characters chemistry is white hot, off the charts explosive. The characters and scenes are written with such realism it really pulls this bad boy together beautifully. Fantastic job Croix, thanks for sharing this little guy with us.

Great characterizations. A whole case of characters were very well depicted. The main female character does have an unusual job. She also has very interesting self-chats with herself. This reader felt they too were a part of this close knit community. Good story line, well organized and well paced. I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this novel and I am leaving an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation to this author.

Max and Harlow have a hot one night stand and don’t expect to ever see each other again. His business is in southern California and she is looking to relocate to Alaska to take a job as a hotshot firefighter. Imagine the surprise when a year later they end up in the same hotel during a snow storm. I wish Harlow would have had more confidence in herself. She apparently was sure of herself in her job just in her personal life that she needed a boost. This was such a fun read. I loved the characters and the author did a great job of making me feel for them. Each book in the series is a standalone and you get enough information to read easy by itself. This is the first book I have read by J.H. Croix and I am looking forward to more.

A hot and sexy-as-hell billionaire + a strong and sassy firefighter = one well-written second chance romance story with a great storyline, interesting characters, angst, conflicting emotion, obstacles, explosive chemistry, and plenty of heat.

Another wonderful addition to the Into The Fire series. In this one there are so many walls to knock down! I eagerly volunteered to read an advanced copy of this book. I leave my voluntary and honest review. Just when I think I've read my favorite one in the Into The Fire series, J.H. Croix blows me away with another story in the series. I swooned, sighed, and fanned myself through most of this story. Max worked his way up from middle class family to billionaire who doesn't do emotional attachments in his relationships. Harlow is a hotshot firefighter who grew up with wealth but with a father who was cold and distant. Harlow has been burned from previous relationships and doesn't want to be emotionally vulnerable. Harlow and Max meet at a wedding, have one night to remember, and go their separate ways. Max comes back to town a year later right before Christmas and they meet up again. Their chemistry and attraction is off the charts and their intimate scenes will set your bed on fire! Max rethinks his no emotions philosophy. Harlow makes him think of forever with her. But Harlow has a lot of emotional walls built around her heart starting with her father. Max has his work cut out for him. Can 2 people so drastically opposite but the same at the core of it all find their HEA? This is more than a love story. It's about personal growth, putting the past into perspective, and trusting love to lead the way. I loved this story and this series! I highly recommend you download it today.

Another great book to the series. This is a well written book with Harlow and Max betting a second chance together after a one night stand one year ago .. a night neither could forget. The author does a great job building the story and moving it quickly and smoothly. I loved seeing past characters and enjoyed this book. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

This is an amazing series of all Standalone books. Your going to love the emotions in this one. Harlow has always been the girl in love with the wrong guy, even her father walked away. After getting burned one to many times she calls it quits on men. Then Max walks into her life. Max is the rich playboy now but he didn't start that way, and Harlow has really thrown him for a loop. He's ready to go all in but she won't even try. Can she give him a shot or will her past keep her to scared to try? HEA no cliffhanger and a great ending. I read this as an ARC for my honest review.

Wow! Into The Fire just got hotter! Max and Harlow had a one night stand at a mutual friends wedding (love that H.H.'s other characters from another series made an appearance). They figured their paths would never cross, but they should know to never say never! Harlow is a hotshot firefighter and Max is in Anchorage on business. Their friends don't know they spent that night, so they scheme to get them to run into each other! This is a great story, fabulous characters...just get it now!

Harlow and Max couldn't be different - in both background and temperament. Harlow was raised in the lap of luxury by a cold, distant father, while Max grew up in a middle-class home with loving parents. Max built his highly successful business from the ground up, while Harlow walked away from her dad's business and ventured into firefighting instead. Max has always avoided emotional entanglements but finds he can't resist the undeniable chemistry he has with Harlow. Harlow, on the other hand, has always found herself investing more in a relationship than her partner deserved, or even requested. Just as Harlow is determined not to continue making the same heart-first impulsive risks as before, Max is equally determined not to let Harlow walk away from what could be a wonderful romance between them. This romance is fueled by internal conflicts and personal growth. It's a hot and sexy love story, with charming characters and the nostalgic setting of Willow Brook, Alaska. The HEA was just perfect on all points, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this terrific series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This story is about two people not trying to get a relationship started … at first. Both are cautious, Max Channing having been hurt before and in no hurry for anything serious. Harlow May wanted love but felt she would not find it. So a one night stand, no strings, would be all they needed. But when they saw each other a year later and those sparks were still there, Max started to think they had a chance for more. He wanted to convince Harlow that it seemed like they had something that was worth fighting for. Will she and Max give in to their attraction fully this time? Will they allow each other to bring the healing and strength they need to trust each other with a deeper relationship? I loved this story! Both main characters were incredibly likable and very realistic. They made a great couple, if only they could believe in their feelings and see where it took them! Grab your copy and experience this wonderful story line! You’ll be very glad you did!

Enjoying this Series Immensely Melt with You, Into The Fire Series, by author J.H. Croix continues the proof that this is a romantic series that needs to be on everyone's bookshelf. This storyline continues to take place in and around Willow Brook, Alaska. Harlow is a hotshot firefighter who met Max a year ago at a wedding where they both were a part of, had a one night stand then Max took off the next morning never to contact her again. But, they constantly think of each other. As luck would have it Max and his friend who lives in Alaska partner on a deal which brings Max to Anchorage at the same time Harlow go to Anchorage for supplies. They run into each other and all bets are off as they now must deal with old wounds from previous relationship and what they want from each other. It's a tall order. Are they up to it? This is a great read and one I enjoyed immensely. Old familiar characters reappear just to give a sense of continuity which I liked. Like all the rest before, I'm recommending this book for your reading pleasure and enjoyment. I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book.

From the moment Max lays eyes on Harlow, he feels a pull to her. She is the best friend to his best friend's fiancé and the daughter of their investor. Harlow wants nothing to do with her father's business and in fact becomes a hotshot firefighter in Alaska. She and Max connect during the wedding and have an erotic night together before departing but they constantly think of the other. One year later they reconnect and the feelings are just as intense. Can Max break through the barriers Harlow has around her heart for a chance at happily ever after? I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of tis book for an honest review.

When Max, the strong and resilient businessman, and Harlow, the HotShot Firefighter meet, the connection is instant and hot! One night, no strings are all it was supposed to be, when they meet again a year later- the sparks are still there, maybe even hotter than before! Max, has not been open to the idea of relationships or settling down, now that he has Harlow back in his sights his mind and heart are thinking all sorts of different things. Harlow has been tossed around by the people who were supposed to love her in the past, so her insecurities are many, and emotional walls are high. Conflicted with her feelings on Max and her life, she keeps pushing away the one man who could be good for her heart and soul. * Sighs & Swoons * I LOVE THIS SERIES SO HARD! This story had me all over the place! Max was a swoon-worthy, heart melting alpha, that I loved, while Harlow- that ooh that girl, I understood her trepidations, but for the love of my sanity- she drove me mad with her constant roadblocks, saying she was ready to move on, and then doing the opposite! Argh. So, much back and forth I could not get enough!! I am glutton for punishment! Pictrquesge detailing woven throughout the pages along with relatable well-defined characters are the icing on their passionate witty romance journey. I cannot wait to see what's next.
