Sometimes life leaves a mark.

Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.

Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as

Rachel Reads Ravenously
4.5 stars!

So I am a huge fan of anything Jennifer Armentrout writes. I’ve read all but one of her books, and the lowest I’ve rated her books was a 3 (and that was the Gamble brother’s series which isn’t her best). That’s 20+ books I’ve loved by her so I am not being modest when I say I might be a little biased when it comes to her work, because it just works for me.

Andrea and Tanner do not get along. Most of the time they are trading barbs and insults with each other until the other one gets p

This was a lovely read, but unfortunately didn’t impress me too much. Needless to say I won’t remember anything about it next month. I’ve had high expectations for this one since I’m familiar with this author’s style, which I enjoy and especially since it has one of my favorite tropes – enemies to lovers. "Scorched” is the second installment in “Frigid” series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Andrea has some problems she tries to deal with. Recently she changed her major from Pre-me

Reading romance books lately has reminded me a lot of mushrooms. There is nothing worse than realizing the hard way that the delicious dinner you ordered has mushrooms in it. You want to enjoy the creamy pasta, but you're too busy picking out disgusting pieces of fungus to fully enjoy it.

(Sorry, that probably only makes sense to me.)

I actually thought this was a pretty good book overall. JLA has a fun sense of humor, and I enjoyed a lot of the banter between these characters. Tanner an

Sexy, moving and compulsively readable. A story about friendship, love and redemption.

[4.5 stars]

Jennifer L. Armentrout’s latest novel packs all the feels in just the right amounts. There’s sexiness and steam. There’s wit and banter. And there’s a whole lot of unexpected emotion as our female protagonist, Andrea, struggles to stop her life from spiraling… from being consumed by her insecurities and past transgressions. This is a story with an enemies to lovers feel, which makes the chemistry bet

What a journey! It's true that things felt a little rushed at times, but I truly enjoyed Andrea's story. I especially liked the way she finally stood up for herself, giving us all a lesson that sometimes we do need help and we should not deny it. This book is totally recommended 🤗 ...more

How gorgeous is this cover?

This eagerly anticipated companion to FRIGID does not disappoint!

Once again Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers a poignant story about life, love and friendship, infused with her signature humor, wit and swoon. Andrea's journey is not an easy one, but she's the kind of character you want to champion and see succeed.

And then there is Tanner. Excuse me while I go set fire to something... Just kidding! But seriously, Tanner was awesome. Strong, supportive and exactly what A

Like all of Jennifer Armentrout's books, you can expect a fun and down to earth chick, a sexy as sin love interest, and a romance that will melt your heart and heat your cheeks. I was very happy to get Tanner and Andrea's story, after first meeting them in Frigid a couple of years ago. They have quite the dynamic, since they are constantly at each other's throats, but there's an attraction, too, that has been steadily building. Sometimes antagonistic romances don't work for me, but I

Like I always say after finishing a JLA book.... JLA has done it again!!! But this book I feel is different from her other ones, it really makes you think and it is such an important story that I think we can all get something from, realizing we all have our demons that we need to overcome and push through so we can get to that light at the end of the tunnel that has so much happiness to offer. Find those people in your life that will always be there for you no matter how badly you screw up and ...more

Original review from my blog Julalicious Book Paradise

I won't lie. My rating throughout the book went between 3.5 and 4, but I settled on 4.

I was really happy to hear that we would get a book for Andrea and Tanner, but I was sort of disappointed from time to time with it.

The sexual chemistry is completely there; no doubt about it, but I felt like I couldn't connect them together as much when they were acting all cute and sweet with one another. I really wanted to after I fell for Syd and Kyl

Jennifer L. Armentrout

I have read almost all of JLA's books, so she is, without a doubt, one of my favorite author. Her stories have a way of speaking out to you, her characters are so fun and down to earth, it's like you've known them for ages.

After reading Kyler and Syd's story in Frigid, it was a happy surprise to read about Andrea and Tanner's story. They have quite the dynamic, since they are constantly at each other's throats. The witty, smart-ass comebacks are so fun to read. It's obviou
I really loved this story. Tanner and Andrea do not have an easy road to romance. They fight and argue, trading quick witted barbs and insults at each other. There is definitely an attraction between them and neither of them knows exactly how to act on it. When they go away for a week to a cabin with friends Syd and Kyler (YAY for catching up with this couple from Frigid - love them!) Tanner decides to finally make his move. Andrea is a fun girl, always laughing and having fun, having one-night ...more

It's been like a year and a half since I read Frigid and from what I can gather, Scorched is 50x better!!! There's no doubt before I started this, that I wouldn't fall head over heels... I mean comeon, it's Jennifer L. Armentrout, one of my absolute favorite authors and queen of swoon - worthy men. I knew I would fall for this. I've never been let down and I've read a very big chunk of her books! I definitely think this is better than Frigid for sure, so much more happens than what Syd and Kyle ...more

It kind of hurts my heart to give a book 2 stars, especially when it's been written by an author I really like, but this book was just not for me. Don't get me wrong; it's an important story to tell, but it has already been told a thousand times. To be brutally honest this book was just one cliche after the other. ...more

I loved this!!!! It was a great love story and not just the kind of guy-girl love story but more about loving yourself. Scorched deals with some very hard topics and JLA did a great job doing that. Definitely topics that need to be talked about more.

There were some things that irritated me about this book, but for the most of the story it was really beautiful and emotional. Andrea and Tanner's story was not what i expected it to be. Andrea, foremost, had alot of personal issues that hindred their relationship, but she is also one hell of a sexy gurl. Also the different aspects of these issues gave the story a depth which the first book lacked! I loved the "fulfilled" realtistic expectations while reading this story. Their sexy times were cl ...more

Tears, people. Lots of tears.

I have read all but two of Jennifer L. Armentrout's books, so she is, without a doubt, one of my most favorite authors. I like the stories she tells. I like the characters that she creates. And, now I can say that I like her even more because she isn't afraid of the hard subjects, and she certainly does them justice.

It's obvious to anyone that Andrea isn't doing so well. She seems to be lacking direction, and she doesn't handle stress or stressful situations in hea

I’m a huge JLA fan so when I found out that Frigid, Kyler and Syd’s story, was getting a sequel I was over the moon.

Tanner is seriously hot but a major player. Currently helping out in the firefighter station and planning on becoming a police man, Tanner has his future sorted out. The only thing that he can’t figure out is the redhead little devil that won’t stop challenging him.

Andrea is in desperate need of help but she doesn’t know it. How? She has convinced herself that she’s a normal girl w

Andrea/Andy Walters is a 22 year old (Sydney's best friend, Syd being the MC from Frigid Frigid (Frigid, #1) by J.

I honestly can't say that I quite tell you how I felt about this book. First off, I thought that I liked Tanner better, I really did. I mean, he's attractive and is a fireman. But then every single time I heard Kyler I just wished I was reading about him. However, I feel that I did enjoy this book better then Frigid because of the content. It felt more real life, more relatable. It dealt with real life problems, such as drinking and driving, and anxiety. But why did Tanner and A

It's no secret that I am obsessed with everything that Jennifer Armentrout has written, so I couldn't wait to read Scorched. While I haven't read Frigid, the first book in this series, I knew that I had to read this one after my friend Sarah from Words With Sarah raved about it!

Andrea and Tanner have a very interesting relationship. They bicker any time that they're together, but Andrea can't help the attraction she feels for Tanner whenever she's around him. Tanner is hot and he knows it, but h

Why, oh why, did my counselor have to be a dude? “Tanner said –”
“Oh, the dreamy Tanner?” He grinned when I narrowed my eyes on him. “Continue.”

“He said that he loved me,” I told him.

Dave picked up the baseball. It was like had he had a special relationship with the damn thing. “Is this a bad thing?

From what you’ve said, he’s a good guy.” He threw the ball up and caught it. “Or do you not the feel the same?”

My heart did a little jump. Answer enough.

“I…I love him.”

I want to thank Spencer Hill Press for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

I have always been a huge JLA fan. Pretty much there is nothing she would write that I wouldn't read. Seriously, she could write about dirt and I'd be enthralled! So, of course, given the chance to have a copy of this book, I was all over it! And I loved the first book in this series, so I was itchy to get these words into my bra

Scorched is the second book in the New Adult Frigid series. The book features different narrators, however Syd and Kyler from the last book are featured a lot.

The narrators of this book are Andrea and Tanner. Andrea is Syd's best friend (from Frigid). And Tanner is Kyler's best friend.

Andrea is curvy. She drinks a lot, takes sleeping pills a lot, and has changed her major from pre-med to being a teacher. Her parents are doctors.

Tanner is a fireman and has never wanted a relationship. He has know

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.

Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
