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.

OMG, love it

I really enjoyed listening to Instant Heat. Griffin and Rae was an insta-love, they fell in love so fast. Rae wasn't sure if she should give Griffin a chance because of her failed relationship before him. You will be hooked at the very begiinning, and boy Gregory Salinas Irish voice was hot. Highly recommend.

Hot Irish Fireman! 🔥🔥

Hot Irish Fireman! 🔥🔥 I loved the relationship between Raelyn and Griffin! It was instant love, even though Raelyn had bad experiences with men in the past. Griffin was trying to heal from something in his past and it was an emotional ride through that. Raelyn's brother didn't like Griffin so it made things harder for their relationship. This was such a wonderful story and this is a must listen! Narration was great!! Gregory's Irish brogue will make you swoon and Lessa was also fantastic! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer #PinkFlamingoProductions

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.

Fabulous combo of narrators and amazing story

This is a fabulous insta love story that is filled with heat, passion and love. I adore the combo of Lessa and Gregory and Gregory's Irish accent is fabulous. A wonderful story of a woman looking to heal her heart and finding a man who is trying to cope with his own set of losses. Together, they heal each other and find their path to love. Absolutely recommend this quick listen. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer #PinkFlamingoProductions #Flock

On Fire

Title: Instant Heat Author: A.K. MacBride Format: Audio Narrators: Less Lamb, Gregory Salinass Genre: Romance, firefighter Standalone: Yes Part of a Series: Book 1 of the Breathing Hearts series POV: Raelyn, Griffin Steam Level: Steamy 4.5/5 This is the second book I've read/listened to by A.M. MacBride. I really like her writing style. I loved Raelyn and Griffin. Instant Heat was just that - instant sparks. I like that their was not a ton of drama between the characters and that they talked out whatever issue they had at the time. Favorite Quote: If I kept erring on the side of caution was I really living? I listened to this audiobook for free for Pink Flamingo Productions. This is my honest and voluntary review.

great narrative by the narrators. RAELYN is newly single and not wanting to get back into the dating scene after her horrible ex. GRIFFIN is Irish and new to town. They meet at a bar when Raelyn was dared by her friends to approach Griffin. They have one hot night both feeling like its not just one night but more. But these two don't realize they have a connection, Raelyn brother isn't a fan of Griffin. Will these two get more than one night? What will her brother think? Will there be a HEA?

Instant Heat, Instant Attraction!

A. K. MacBride certainly brought the heat to Instant Heat. The storyline pulled me in immediately. I loved the connection between Griffin and Rae, and the other characters in the book. Lessa Lamb and Gregory Salinas brought the characters to life with their voices. I loved the Irish accent that Gregory conveyed. Audiobook Obsession and Pink Flamingo Productions thank you for this great listen! I loved it and look forward to the next book in the series.

sexy irish fireman

Loved this steamy, sexy, romance! who knew when Rae's friends made a bet at a bar would become her forever? It was only supposed to be a one night stand, the rebound guy. Griffin Gallagher, the fireman with the Irish brogue rocked her world. I loved how AK McBride developed the characters in this story, Rae's overprotective brother, her friends, and Rae and Griffin's steamy relationship. Gregory Salina’with his sexy Irish brogue was swoon worthy. Lessa Lamb was amazing too! Both really brought this story to life! Every emotion, every voice , every character was perfection! they flawlessly transitioned from one character to another. Thank you for the great listen! 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧 #flockVipreviewer #pinkflamingoproductions

Sweet and Romantic!

This was my first A.K. MacBride's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Breathing Hearts Series, a Contemporary Romance. Griffin and Rae's story is beautifully written, sweet and romantic. Griffin is a hot and sexy firefighter, caring and protective. Rae is sweet, and supportive. I loved to follow them in their journey. Gregory Salinas and Lessa Lamb did a great job with the narration. Gregory Salinas's Irish accent is sexy! I love their voices together. The audio quality is perfect! This is a great team author and narrators. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the Series, #AudiobookObsessionVIP

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! 5 There’s-A-Fire-In-My-Pants Stars! NOLA504NERDS BLOG

Loved the narration, loved the story

Instant Heat was my 1st AK MacBride novel and I loved it. This romance was sweet yet hott with a bit of family drama included and I was hooked from beginning to end. There was no denying the instant, intense chemistry between Rae and Griffin and the author did a great job of making them both likable and relatable and bringing out the emotions in the story. This was a short quick read but there was a lot in the story and I absolutely loved it. The audiobook was narrated by Gregory Salinas and Lessa Lamb and they were perfect for these characters. They brought out the characters personality and Gregory's accent was amazing. Their voices blended well together and the narration was clear and understandable. These two brought the story to life and it was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel. Pink Flamingo Productions

hotttttt

I wasn't sure what to expect. This book started out hot and ended the same way. A bet becomes so much more for Ray. She fights her feelings for him. She a dilemma when she founds out his job. Her brother is a helicopter brother. so much intensity and heat in this story. Gregory and Lessa are amazing narrators both are new to me and nailed it. #flock #audioobsessionreviewer

Loved it!

This is my first book by AK MacBride and I’m an instant fan! Griffins story is sad. He’s filled with guilt that doesn’t belong to him, but when he meets Rae, things don’t seem so dark. The guilt eases. And Rae becomes the fresh air he’s so desperately needs. After Rae’s last relationship, she’s hesitant to get seriously involved with anyone. But then she meets Griffin and she can’t help but fall and fall quickly. Griffin shows her it’s okay to fall fast and hard. The chemistry between the two is 🔥 from the start. I can’t wait to see what happens with the rest of the series! Lessa & Gregory did a fantastic job narrating! 🎧AudioBookObsessionReviewer 🦩PinkFlamingoProductions

An Irish firefighter 🔥

Rae is out to the test when she has to pick up a guy at a bar. Griffin is new in town and lets himself being picked. Their instant attraction is hot and so is their chemistry. They have a few bumps but their romance is fast and furious, but true and lasting. This short story is fun and sweet. The narration very on point. Lovely! Audiobook Obsession reviewer

Rae and Griffin!

After the way Rae’s last relationship ended she is questioning her judgment when it comes to men, but during a girl’s night accepting a bet could be the best decision she ever made. Griffin has recently moved to town looking for a fresh start and trying to heal from a tragedy when a beautiful woman approaches him at the bar. There is no denying the chemistry and connection between them but will Rae have to choose between her love for Griffin and loyalty to her brother? I listened to an audio copy of the book and thought that the narrators were a great choice for the characters, especially Griffin's sexy brogue. Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Hot firefighters, be warned!

These firefighters are so hot. They are very Alpha, demanding but have a beautiful soul that will have you on your knees. It’s an emotional storyline with fantastic characters and just the right amount of heartache. A brilliant performance from both Lessa and Gregory, fantastic accent from Gregory. Great job guys. #pinkflamingoproductions #audiobookobsessionreviewer #flockreview
