Publisher's summary

One night. One bet. And now my world is turned upside down.

Apparently, you're not supposed to fall for the rebound guy.

Guess I didn't get the memo, because the first man I jump into bed with happens to be the one who sparks a flame inside my heart.

With his rakish charm and Irish accent, he steals my sanity and inhibitions. It's not long before I'm dreaming of something more than a quick fling. The problem?

Griffin Gallagher happens to be the one man my brother despises.

A quick easy story that will leave you smiling

NOLA504NERDS BLOG
I was lucky enough to receive this audio ARC from Audiobook Obsessions in exchange from an honest review.

This was my first book by A.K. MacBride, and it will not be my last! This story is absolutely beautiful! Raelyn (aka Rae) works at a retirement home and is recovering from a recent heartbreak. Griffin Gallagher is a firefighter who is starting over in a new place/job after a tragic event in his life. Griffin is a sexy and single Irish firefighter with a thick Irish brogue. (bye-bye, panties) A night at a bar and a bet from Rae’s friends brings these 2 together for an incredible one-night stand. You either love Griffin and Rae or you’re wrong. I fell just as fast and hard for these 2 as they did for each other! Griffin and Rae have an instant connection to each other. They’re powerless against the pull to each other and their relationship quickly progresses. As it turns out, Griffin is Rae’s [overprotective] brother Thatcher’s new boss. The unfortunate part to this is that Thatcher hates Griffin and would never be okay with the 2 of them dating. Will Rae have to choose between Griffin and her brother? This story was steamy, fun, and absolutely perfect!!!

You can’t listen to this book without smiling from ear to ear. Gregory Salinas and Lessa Lamb did an impeccable job narrating it. Lessa brings Rae’s character to life. Her tone and flow are a perfect match for Rae’s quirky and fun character. As far as Gregory as Griffin. Omg ladies, hold on to your panties! That Irish brogue! Sweet baby Jesus! I will now be buying every romance audiobook Gregory Salinas has performed for!

Loving AK MacBride!!

AK MacBride is fast becoming a one click author for me. This is my second listen by her and her stories are fabulous. Instant Heat has those favorite tropes. Love at first sight and firefighters are high on my list. We meet Griffin, who has just taken a new position in the local fire station, He meets Rae at a bar, and their instant connection has them heading home together. Turns out Griffin works with Rae's brother, and there is no love lost between them. Will Rae have to choose between them? Will the baggage that follows them interfere with their new found relationship? FUN! This book has it all. Great characters, an entertaining plot and it gave me all the feels. It will be on my recommend list!

Gregory Salinas comes shining through this narration with another stunning accent. This man is on fire! The Irish brogue flows out as Griffin comes to life. Matching his talent is Lessa Lamb, with a fantastic performance as Rae. She is a master of inflection and nuance creating Rae's personality. This team gave a wonderful performance!

A bet turns to love

Raelynn is trying to get over a breakup when her friends bet her she won't find a hot man in the bar and have a one night stand.

Griffin spotted the hot woman across the bar and to his surprise she approached him and told him of her bet. He was happy to participate.

Rae and Griffin are a great couple. There are past emotions for Griff to deal with and Rae's brother isn't happy with their relationship so there is that but they get over the hurdles and move toward their HEA.

Gregory Salinas and Lessa Lamb are great. Gregory does a really good Irish accent and Lessa is perfect for Rae. Loved listening to both of them.

#Audiobook Obsession and #Pink Flamingo Productions provided a code for me to listen and review with my honest opinion. I really enjoyed listening to this book. It has a good story and kept my attention from beginning to end. The narration is great and I recommend this book.

I love it!!

I started listening to this book this morning, and I couldn't stop listening! Need groceries? Sure, I'll grab those. Anything else I can do for you with my headphones? I'm in. Seriously. I loved this one.

The author and narrators were both new for me, but I'm a new fan of all three! If you are looking for insta love with a hot, tortured firefighter (with a sexy accent) and a sweet girl who could be your new bff, you will love this book!

Love at first sight

Raylynn meet Griffin at a bar when she is dared by her friends to have a one night stand. That one night stand leads to an instant attraction between the two that can not be denied. Complications with her brother and something from Griffin's past almost derails what could be a relationship of a lifetime. I loved the narration and that Irish accent.

Steamy Short Story...Loved the Narration!

Instant Heat is a steamy, swoony story I was hooked on from the start and did not want to stop listening to for a minute. Instant Heat is about Raelin/Rae, who doesn't have the best track record with relationships and who is no stranger to loss, and Griffin, an Irish firefighter who is struggling with his own demons related to loss and in turn is looking for an escape so he leaves his job and finds himself now working at the fire department in Rae's town.

I enjoyed Griffin and Rae's interactions and them getting to know each other. They had some serious off the charts chemistry, but it was clear they also had a deeper connection as well and that it wasn't all just physical.

This was my first book by the author. I enjoyed the author's writing style and I found the story line to be engaging and enjoyable. I really enjoyed Rae and Griffin and characters and am excited to have found a new author. I look forward to checking out more of the author's work in the future.

Gregory Salinas and Lessa Lamb did a phenomenal job with this story. The accents totally made the whole story and made this book highly enjoyable to listen to. I think this might be my first audiobook by both narrators but after this book, I would definitely recommend both, and I look forward to checking out more of their work in the future. #THEFLOCK #PINKFLAMINGOPRODUCTIONS
