Darren Bridge is living a bachelor’s dream. When he’s not running into burning buildings with his crew, he’s training the flavor of the week at his brother’s gym. Few women have ever been off limits...until Vanessa. Smart, beautiful, and legs for days, she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met. Too bad he’s sworn to leave her alone.
Overworked with no end in sight, Vanessa Hawkins hasn’t had a vacation in nearly two years. When Cameron and Maya’s destination wedding takes her out of the office for a much-needed break, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to the best man. Darren is dangerously good-looking with enough charm to make any hot-blooded woman want to drop her panties and enjoy the ride, no matter how long it lasts.
When they return to the city, Darren realizes the single life has lost its glimmer. But with everything else on her plate, Vanessa doesn’t have room in her life for a man, let alone a player. Can Darren find his way into her heart and convince her that he’s worth the risk?
The Bridge Series follows Cameron, Darren, and Olivia Bridge, three siblings living in New York City. Desperate to break away from the crushing expectations of their wealthy and privileged and equally broken family, they carve out a new path together. But can they find real love along the way?
Each book follows a different sibling’s journey and can be read as a standalone.
This was my first Meredith Wild and totally understand why people love her so. I did not read On My Knees before this book, it is not necessary to follow along but I will pick it up soon just to see how Cameron and Maya’s relationship played out. I did enjoy them very much in this book a secondary characters.
Into the Fire, readers are introduced to Cameron’s older brother Darren Bridge and Maya’s close friend, Vanessa Hawkins as they travel to Cameron and Maya wedding getaway.
Darren is consummate bachelor living a life free of commitment or relationships. The only thing he is committed too is being a firefighter. Now ladies are never a problem for Darren until he meets the sexy, Vanessa.
“The physical connection had blown me away, making it easy for me to believe her when she’d admitted it had been the same for her. We had chemistry. That was undeniable now.”
Vanessa is a work-a-holic trying to climb her way up the ladder in the financial district. With a overbearing, dick of a boss a getaway to the Cayman Islands for her best friend’s wedding seems like the way to go. She is aware a of Darren’s manwhore ways but decides a week in the sun should call for some fun, right? What is the harm going against her normal nature of not being a booty call and enjoying it for what it is?
Well feelings get involved of course, so when they return to NYC Darren is not so easily pushed aside and they both find it hard to leave their island romp…on the island.
“Vanessa was different. Everything about her revved me up. The way she moved, the way she brushed me off because even if she might have wanted me, she didn’t need me….She took every inch of me, over and over. It was an erotic sight. Satisfying and arousing. Enough to push me over…Her hands were everywhere. Every desperate touch spread fire over my skin, tugged somewhere in my gut as I fought the urge to bring our bodies closer. It was all too much. Something triggered inside of me.”
But as in every story, the real world is not always so easy. Real life has a way making everything that much harder.
I really enjoyed Darren and Vanessa, they were funny, honest and full of passion in and out of the bedroom. Many things happen that throw obstacles in the way of their HEA but it was nice to see them come out the other end.
“Maybe I could lose the man I’d once been. The one who’d wasted time with too many others who weren’t her. I could just be hers. Pleasure her, comfort her, and show her things about her body that no one ever would. I wanted to be that man.”
I must say that I am excited to read Olivia’s story and see where their sister ends up. The synopsis say it involves Ian so it should be a fun ride.
