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.

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!

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.

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

Firemen and puppies! 💕

I loved this story about Travis and Cara. They have been friends since they were young and both of them are too stubborn to realize that they are really in love with each other. This book is full of romance, hot monkey sex, and a lot of humor. I loved Joe Arden and Erin Mallon's narration!

I love these books! But was only able to listen to the 2nd and 3rd in the series, can’t seem to find the first as an audio book. This series was steaming hot and I couldn’t stop reading until I was finished!

Worth a credit?🤷‍♀️

Consumed By You written by Lauren Blakely is a hot, steamy love story! Cara is the gorgeous, flirty dog trainer🐩, who loves animals and loves to dance💃🏻 , whether it’s with someone or by herself. Travis is Hidden Oaks’ poker playing🃏 , volunteer fire-fighting👨🏻‍🚒, smokin’ hot consummate bachelor. They have had an on again, off again fling since high school. Cara is ready to settle-down, but decides to have one last fling with Travis to “get him out of her system.” Come on! Does that really ever work?😉 The fire that ignites between Travis and Cara will burn🔥up the pages of your book, or what ever device you’re listening with! I would say that they burn up the sheets, except they never use a bed🛏 . Ok. Well, maybe they did...once.

Is it worth a credit? 👍🏻I say heck yeah!! If you’re looking for a fun, light-hearted rom-com, this one will fill the bill.

The Narrators: Joe Arden and Erin Mallon, what can I say that I haven’t already said? They are a great duo! Some narrators just have that knack to be able to emote with their voices. Joe & Erin really have it in spades! I’m a true 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.
