I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. This is the third book in the Combustible contemporary romance series. I loved it! Arianna Nelson is a wonderful character. I really liked her. She is a chocolatier who runs the local sweet shop. When she catches her on again/off again boyfriend Derrick cheating, she decides that enough is enough and breaks up with him for good. Attracted to Isandro, she wasn't looking for love but cupid had other ideas. Isandro Cortez (or Bulldog as his firefighting team mates and friends call him) is a fantastic character. I love his protective and loving heart of gold. He has had feelings for Arianna for years, but didn't act on it as she was in an on again/off again relationship with Derrick. Now she's broken up with him again, Isandro hopes that he can win her heart. I started to read this book and quickly became hooked. The story is told through the eyes of both Arianna and Isandro, which allowed me to see what they were both thinking and feeling. I found myself on a roller coaster of emotion from beginning to end. I am a sucker for contemporary romances with sexy firemen and chocolate in it, and this book doesn't disappoint. I must admit that I enjoyed this book much more than the first two books in the series. I think this is because most of the characters have already been introduced and they have become my friends. Having said that, I found myself not liking Arianna's mother. She comes across as cold and snobbish due to her ambition and lack of compassion towards Arianna; she also belittles her, which affects Arianna's self-esteem. Who needs enemies when you have a mother like that? Arianna's sisters, Cherise and Antionette, are also more like their mother, though Cherise is nicer to Arianna. However, she is rather more tactless/thoughtless and says things that are hurtful without realising it. Derrick is a total douche and Arianna is much better for breaking up with him in my opinion. Marissa, Isandro's sister, however, is a wonderful character with a warm and welcoming personality. There's a lot of heat between the main protagonists and it fairly sizzles on the page. The characters themselves feel lifelike and likable. I love flawed characters, as they come alive on the page. There are a few surprises that I didn't see coming though, and I reached the end of the book with mixed emotions. I felt sad that the story ended, but happy with the way it did. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Backburn, as soon as possible. Brandy L. Rivers has written an entertaining contemporary romance series. I love her fast paced writing style, and the flow is wonderful. Her characters are lifelike and likable. With her ability to write in both the paranormal and contemporary romance genres, she is one of my go to authors when I'm in the mood for a sexy read. Due to explicit scenes of a sexual nature, as well as use of bad language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 18. However, I do recommend this book if you love hot erotic contemporary romances full of sexy firemen and determined women. - Lynn Worton

Sweet Tooth (Combustible Volume 3) is the latest installment in Brandy L Rivers contemporary romance series. Isandro is a hot fire fighter with a big sweet tooth. And it just so happens that the local chocolatier happens to be the candy Isandro has been eyeing for years. One night is all it takes for Isandro to become addicted to his sweetest candy yet. Arianna has finally had enough of the lies and cheating. After years of putting up with her ex’s infidelity she is has decided to kick him to the curb for the final time. Following an incredible evening with Isandro, Arianna realizes what she has been missing out on. Overall I found this book to be sweet. The storyline is well written and the characters are likeable. I enjoyed seeing the cameos from characters in previous books. This book can also be read as a standalone which is great because you don’t miss anything from the prior books. I am looking forward to the next book

* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. * This is the third book in the Combustible series, however, it can be read as a stand alone and be understood with no problems. I recommend reading the prior books, only because they are amazing, I loved them and because some of the characters from the previous 2 books are mentioned in this book. The reader will instantly fall in love with the characters, the town and the author! This series will instantly become one of your favorites and the reader will be hooked and want more and more! This book focuses mostly on Arianna and her cheating jerk ex-boyfriend Derrick, as well as her true love, Isandro....it also focuses on family and how family may be family but they may not always be what is best for you. Arianna has never felt like she fit in or that she was good enough for her mom and sisters, so she settles for whatever she can get - it takes a lot of break-ups with Derrick, some fights with her family and Isandro to show her what her true worth is! The author does a great job of making the reader feel like she hits all of the self-esteem issues that women have but she does it in a respectful and informative way. The author creates an amazing storyline that captivates the reader and holds their attention to the very last page - and even farther. The reader thinks about the characters long after they have finished reading the story. They become friends to the reader and they make the reader crave more! I am already looking forward to the next book in the series and can't wait to see what author Brandy L Rivers comes up with next! If you haven't read anything by this author, then you should!!! You need to add this one and her others to your TBR list and add them now!! Sit back and enjoy these amazing books!

Five Feel Good Stars! Arianna was always told she was no good that is until Isandro came into her life. Isandro saw Arianna as beautiful and wanted to make sure she felt that way. Can Isandro convince Arianna that she is beautiful even though her family tries to convince her otherwise? The author writes a well written story full of mystery, danger and sexiness. I fell in love with the characters and especially felt what Arianna was experiencing. I was engaged from the first chapter and read it in one evening. This is the third book in the Combustible Series and can be read as a stand alone novel. Must read Series and I recommend it! I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club. Plot: 5 Chemistry: 5 Pacing: 5 Ending: 5 Character Development: 5

Isandro and Arianna’s story is another wonderful journey in the Combustible series! This story combines mystery, a dose of danger, and a flourishing romance to keep readers glued to the pages. I like the way this author builds a history into the characters that helps the reader understand how they have become who they are and see how they meet challenges and learn to love and be loved. Doesn’t hurt that Isandro is totally hot either! This is a stand-alone entry in the series, but I recommend reading the previous entries and you get a glimpse into these two characters earlier in their relationship and tie together their friend’s perspectives. I highly recommend this author.
