You okay?"
"I'm not sure. I think I just had an out-of-body experience."
"That's funny, 'cause I just had an in-your-body experience."

Now where do I find me a dirty talking Fire Chief to put it out? Because I know the dirty talking Fire Chief that caused the fire to begin with. Josh Bradley. Pervy dreamy sigh But I digress...

A) I really liked Melody in PP and after what she went through with Roger, she deserves some happiness and a man of her own.

I admit it... I am easy when there is a hunky, Alpha male and he happens to be a dirty talker... nothing pleases me as much when I am in the mood for these types of tales. I have found Samantha Beck has come up with just the right combination of steam, humor and heart in her books. She places people in situations which are not difficult to relate too... they are not so out of the realm of reality for us to actually be able to place o

There's a fire inside me, and I can't put it out on my own.

For months Fire Chief Josh Bradley and resident good girl Melody Merritt has let the fire between them build, with stolen glances it's enough to make any one burn. Melody, Miss Bluelick, has ten years of making up to do, fresh out of a ten year engagement with a man who loved her but loved the other sex more. She's ready to let loose, putting her good girl front aside and do something for her...casualstars

5 - "Titwank" & "A-play" Stars!

After reading the first book in the Private Pleasures series and really enjoying it, I settled in with Light Her Fire expecting much of the same. Samanthe Beck has a really great voice when it comes to the male POV, and the humor and lightheartedness of the situations that her characters find themselves in make for a really enjoyable read.

”You ready to make your move Chief, or are you just going to stare all night?”

And that was pretty much it; this book pulled me in hook, line, and sinker. I loved the whole thiread.

I wanted something sweet, fun, fluffy, and sexy, and that's exactly what this was. Not as good as book one, I don't think, but still a great romance and a nice palette cleanser between intense reads.

4.25 stars! I really enjoyed this 2nd book in the Private Pleasures series. Josh is the newly appointed Fire Dept Chief in Bluelick, Kentucky. He thinks the job is just a stepping stone to a Fire Chief position in a bigger city.
He meets Melody (great supporting character in book 1, Private Practices). They have sparks of sexual chemistry After some false starts, they starting see each other & have encounters & some are near public places- I kept expecting them to get caught with th

Wow! This was a hot one! Melody just got out of a 10 year relationship and the whole town is saying that her fiance dumped her because she was too boring in bed. She has the reputation of being a good girl. Josh moved to the small town of Bluelick from Cincinnati to be the fire chief. He's sexy and has a dirty mouth. The sexual chemistry between these two was off-the-charts HOT! The steamy scenes in this book were smoking hot! My only complaint would be that I really didn't feel a real connectio ...more

“You’re not on vacation, Bluelick. No sitting still while I do all the work. I’m going to give you my tongue again. This time I expect you to use it. We’re going right to the edge, but not over. Understand?”

I was on fire through the whole book!

Such an irony, because the cause of fire was not paper and match but a HOT FIRE CHIEF named Josh Bradley!

Melody Ann Merritt was a fully fledged Bluelick, Kentucky inhabitant. She adored the town, having grown up there, having ticked all the memory boxes and still had the Pom poms to prove it.

She had recently established her independence following a failed ten year engagement to Roger. Being a close knit community, the reason for their break up suggested his proclivities didn't a

Light Her Fire by Samanthe Beck was SMOKING HOT!!!! What's not to love about this book that was burning with sexual chemistry with a sexy fireman that loves to get hot and dirty...and let me just say this fire chief is blazing hot!!

This book was one of those books that you don't want to put down. It was fun, sexy, steamy and passionate. Ms. Beck did an amazing job showing what an amazing person Melody is after her failed engagement. What I love about Melody's character is that she do

Couple of things you can count on with a Samanthe Beck book.  Hot flashes and you get to learn new words.  It's sexy AND educational!

Words like "fuck-lust" and "Titwank".  Take my word for it ok?  You'll be laughing and running for a cold drink while inserting your head in the freezer.

Good times.

So,we met Melody and Josh (ahem) in Private Practice in quite an interesting way.  Luckily, Ms. Beck fills us in on how that "situation" came to be and how things between Josh and Melody "evolve".  Josh, holy cow, is one intense dude and Melody is. It's

Josh is 5-alarm hot and Melody was just perfect for him.

You know I'm going to fuck you. But I'm also going to warn you, I'm not some polite country boy. If you put me in your mouth, I'm going to fuck your mouth. We clear on that?

Both were first looking at a casual relationship. Josh didn't want to lay roots in a small town like Bluelick while Melody just came out of a 10-year engagement. What happens when they start feeling like they want more?

This is my first time reading anything by Samanthe Beck, and I know it won’t be my last. This story has everything you need for a steamy read. A sexy fireman, the good girl with a hidden wild side, and just enough town drama to keep the readers guessing. The story was just full of fantastic characters and our hero and heroine were steamy HOT! Add a little suspense with the arson twist and you have yourself a

This one is erotica with a great story and great characters .The whole thing was believable ,they met ,they set fire to the pages ,there was believable development in their relationship and they had some real conflicts . I didn't roll my eyes even once and that's a rare thing for me !!

Loved this book, loved Josh's playfulness, "he smacked her very tempting a**. "I'm no gentleman." Melody she isn't afraid to speak her thoughts, "this isn't fair. I'm spread out on this table like Sunday supper, and I can't see you at all." Josh learns quickly of what his woman needs, "okay. Lesson learned. No effing with patience. The woman needed a decent meal. What he had planned for them tonight required energy and stamina." Josh is an honest boy and doesn't mind sharing his thoughts as well ...more

Light Her Fire is the second book in Beck’s Private Pleasures series. I didn’t think the sequel could top my love for Private Practice, but never have I been so happy to be wrong. Beck brings back the heat hotter than ever, adds in an intriguing arsonist on the lam in Bluelick, and made me fall head over damp panties with one delicious Chief Josh Bradley, a man who doesn’t just put out the fires in the small town of Bluelick. . . he’s the culprit of many, especially the ones starring good girl M
