Publisher's Summary

Fall in love with a Lauren Blakely romance, which New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips calls “The perfect blend of sexy and emotional, with sparks and heat!”

Dog trainer Cara Bailey wants to find “the one,” but fantasizing about her sexy-as-hell client, firefighter Travis Jansen, is getting in the way. Her only option? Get the confirmed bachelor out of her system - in every position possible - so she can settle down with Mr. Right. Starting right now.

Travis doesn't do relationships, so no matter how badly he wants the pretty little brunette, he keeps his distance. Until Cara goes and changes the game. She'll fulfill all of his fantasies if he agrees to walk away when it's over. But when the wildfire between them blazes out of control, it will consume everything - and everyone - in its path....

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another great feel good romance from Lauren Blakely. This is book 3 in the series but they are standalone also. This book was way hotter than the last 2 IMHO. Travis & Cara were high school sweethearts who never really lost that pull when they both moved on. Cara is back and the sexual attraction is off the charts. Their story is sweet and sexy in such a perfect way. As always in all Lauren Blakely books the drama is minimal and only lasts minutes. This is why I love her writing so much.

The narration is perfect cause Joe Arden & Erin Mallon are both amazing narrators.

Not a Fan of Erin Mallon's

Mallon emphasizes the ends of words at the ends of sentences and it really annoys me. Angerrrr. Talkingah. If she could just quit that I'd like her and this book would've been more enjoyable.

annoying narration...

Almost could not finish because of the grating female narrator. She does the this weird, breathy, stretched out emphasis at the end of every, single, sentence. Will definitely avoid her in the future - sooo annoying. Story is ok

Teaching An Old Dog New Tricks

I really enjoyed this second chance friends with benefits romance! These are classic tropes for a reason and Lauren Blakely does them so well! Amazing performances by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon make this a real treat. I will never get tired of hearing these two (individually or together) and they captured the sexy, playful, vulnerable, and electric chemistry between Cara and Tyler perfectly. Consumed by You can be enjoyed as a standalone, but characters from the previous 2 books do appear and that is where we initially meet our characters.

Tyler and Cara have quite the history and though they dated briefly in high school, nothing more has ever come from their scorching chemistry and connection. Tyler has sworn himself off from relationships and love after seeing the aftermath left in the wake of his own father's untimely death. He makes no promises for a future, but chooses to live in the present. Cara on the other hand, has a particular vision for her future and what it should contain. Unfortunately, these two cannot deny the feelings they still harbor for the other and in an attempt to "get them out of their system", the friends with benefits deal is made. But what happens when what started as just fun and indulgence begins to feel like so much more? Although Blakely doesn't reinvent the wheel with this trope, it was still emotional as our characters began to see what was so clear to everyone else. The push and pull drama thankfully occurs late in the book, and though I'm not 100% sold on Tyler's epiphany, I was glad that it resolved quickly. Overall, this was a sexy and fun listen!

Booooooooring

Unfortunately this time Lauren Blakely did not deliver. Boring story and without the least emotion, without anything interesting and just horrible. The narrators are good, but with a story like that, it doesn't work.

Plans ...

Consumed by You by Lauren Blakely pulled me in from the very beginning. How can one not get immersed in the story with two fantastic narrators. Joe Arden and Erin Mallon are so talented! Both in their own right is awesome, but together they are magic. I loved how the main character in this book had plans. I frequently say, plans are meant to be broken, and they are only a guideline and not direction. This book has great humor, steam, and wonderful imagery. I loved how Cara and Travis met. The inner musings had me laughing out loud. Once again, I find myself smiling as I am listening to this book. Lauren Blakely's books always make me feel good when I listen. I am looking forward to listening to more books in the Fighting Fires series. This is a standalone listen.

Couldn’t finish

I wish I could say I listened to this one because I live Lauren Blakely novels but I couldn’t deal with the narrator. His voice wasn’t that bad but hers, she paused every few seconds. When she paused it just broke the story up way too much and I couldn’t follow.

Wanted to strangle the female narrator.

The story was half way decent but every time Erin Malton started reading it was just horrible. I forced myself to finish the book and it seemed half finished. Not a well thought out ending. I will definitely avoid books read by Erin Malton from now on. Such a whinny voice.

Erin Mallon is worst narrator

How in the world does she keep getting hired? Her over enunciation is incredibly annoying.
Also this is not Blakey’s best book and I’m a fan

Performance outweighed the story

The narrators did a great job in relaying the story; and although the characters were interesting, the story itself was shallow.

This is the book for you if you are seeking a (very) romantic novel, as it ticked the boxes for that; however, if you are looking for more substance, particularly with the plot, you might be slightly disappointed.

Nevertheless, a good 'summer' read.

Perfect

I’ve really enjoyed these books and as usual the two narrators Joe Arden and Erin Mallon were excellent as usual.

An engaging read. A good listin

Cara and Travis have been in love for a while but they were both finding it difficult to trust their feelings. I am glad Travis finally realised what he had been feeling. It took losing Cara for him to acknowledge his true feelings. A lovely story, lots of steamy sex scenes and an engaging plot, the characters really drew in.

Wow

Loved this story of how Travis thought he didn’t need love and Cara wanted one last fling with him to try and get him out of her system. Travis found out what his heat had been telling him for ages. Cara found out that she was in even deeper then when she started.
Narration was awesome.
