A Red Hot Weekend story.

Well, this is an unexpected twist. Jenna Brooks is all set to spend the weekend wallowing in misery, repairing the cracks in the façade she’s maintained for twelve years. Instead she’s…tied to a chair. Kidnapped by her own twin brother and her so-called best friend.

It’s for her own good, they say. She’ll thank them later, they say. But when they re

'Hidden Fire' definitely had some appeal, but personally I just couldn't buy a few things:

- 'The pact' - Frankly, it all sounded so childish and immature. I can see children and even teens doing that sort of thing, for a time, mind you, but adult siblings living their lives hindered by some silly promise not to date each other's friends is just dumb.

- remote, closed off Jenna suddenly running into Gareth's arms simply because her brother broke the pact.

- Garreth screwing Jenna's best friend aka
The day that Jenna Brooks and her twin brother Jackson turns 30 is the day that Jenna finds out that her brother wants to break the pact that had protected both of them, especially Jenna for the past 12 years. At 17, the vicious lies spread by an ex-girlfriend of Jackson who had been one of Jenna’s closest friends had affected Jenna more so than Jackson. The news that Jackson wants out leaves Jenna with a sense of freedom and exhilaration she barely allows herself to acknowledge before she is ma ...more

Blog rating: 2.5/5

Jenna and Garreth have been in love with each other for two years, but never acted on it due to a promise that Jenna and her twin brother had. After horrible lies were told about the twins when they were high school by Jenna’s then best friend, Jenna and Jackson made a vow to never date each others friends. For years they held to this until Jackson fell for Rachel, Jenna’s best friend, while Jenna fell for Garreth, who is friends with Ja

Sometimes, being tied down is the quickest way to become free.

When Jenna is kidnapped by her brother and her best friend, and tied blindfolded to a chair, she is furious at first. When she realizes she isn’t alone, she feels a bit better, until she learns just who is tied to the other chair.

Jenna starts to build her walls back around her heart. Garreth has waited too long for Jenna’s love to give up now. He's determined to make her un

Jess Dee writes some of the best friends to lovers stories I’ve read! Her stories have so much emotion packed into them it’s unbelievable. Unbelievable because the ones I’ve read have been short stories. It takes some mad skills to put so much emotion into such a short story and still keep the story hot!

Hidden Fire actually starts in the Winter Fire book. You really need to read that book before you read this one. You’ll be a bit lost if you don’t. It will also create a stronger emotional attac

I liked this and then I didn't. It was hot and then it annoyed me. I was a bit conflicted and the main reason why was because I felt that this story felt forced. It was forced.

Jenna and her brother Jackson had made a pact not to date each other friends after a bad incident happened with an ex friend that turned crazy. In a previous book Jackson fell in love with Jennas' friend Rachel and couldn't abide by that pact anymore. Now Jenna is faced with the po

Both Jenna and Garreth are “kidnapped” and forced to talk out their difference. I loved reading Garreth with all his dirty words to Jenna trying to break down her wall and let him in. He knew he had to push her beyond her breaking point and when he does things go from HOT to SCORCHING ! Garreth and Jenna have great chemistry and their story is so wonderfully written. Their story is like reading a story about friends. They love each, they can not stand what the o

This is book #2 in the Fire series and it picks up just a few weeks after the last one ends. Rachel and Jackson are a couple but Garret has lost any chance he may have had with Jenna...or so he thought. Rachel being the ever-so-wonderful friend doesn't want to see her best friend give up on an amazing guy just because he...(well, I can't tell you what he did-you have to read it) let's just say he stepped over a line to help a friend.

Both Rachel and Jackson know what they have to do so the kidna

This was a great follow-up to Winter Fire. I'm not sure I could have forgiven Garreth so easily, and honestly, she didn't forgive him easily! It's one thing to have girlfriends because of course Jenna wasn't giving him a shot due to the pact with her brother, but it's another thing entirely for him to fuck her best friend. With her brother. That's a little squicky, lol.

But how Rachel and Jackson got Garreth and Jenna over their little hump of misery was brilliant. First, Jackson "attacked" Garre

OMG I'm so tied up in knots.

It's really well written and I've gone through the story in no-time.
As usual sex scenes are HOT, but that's Jess for you.
But the plot... it got me thinking: what would I do in her place ?
And I don't know if it makes me normal or prude.
I think I could probably get over Garret sleeping with my best friend if I've really loved him.
I could get over him having threesomes with my brother and random girls.
though no effin way I could just look past 3somes with her and my br

Can I just say I loved the 2nd book even more than the first in the series. Jenna and Garreth are dee-liciously hot together, but their getting past Jenna's fears and doubts to get to that point make you love the characters and the chemistry between the two. I highly recommend another winner from Jess :)

This is the second part of the Fire series. I really enjoyed this novella and am glad I read this straight after Winter Fire.

Despite the fab interaction between the H&H and sexy scenes there is a ton of emotion.

4 stars because I really like Garreth.

But I don't like Jenna.

I didn't like her in the first book (even though she was hardly in it) and I just couldn't get on board with her in this one.

But I love Garreth, Jax, and Rachel.

Bought on accident instead of hidden fire. Book was very graphic sexual a Lil to much. Quick read takes place over 1-3 day span.

An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. It might have taken a while, but in December of 2005, she finally got “the call.” Her first book, Photo Opportunity had been co
