Consumed by You contained some of my favourite things:

A firefighter... ✔️
...who talks dirty ✔️
A cute puppy dog...✔️
...fur-baby of the aforementioned firefighter who loves his cute puppy dog ✔️
Second-chance romance ✔️
Plenty sexy-time ✔️


I have to confess Lauren Blakely is a hit and miss author for me, but this series has worked for me and from the start firefighter and pro poker player, Travis and dog trainer, Cara's trip down memory lane was a hit.

Thank you Lauren for writing the sexiest book boyfriends ever! I totally loved Consumed by You, it was an amazing book about second... Not, third.... Not, fourth.... Ok, N-th chances, about finding and fighting for what you want in life, about sexy deals and of course, about how easy is to fall in love with a firefighter as awesome and Travis Jansen, my new addition to the BBF collection.

I have to start this by saying I have strongly suggested (OK... maybe actually harassed) Lauren Blakely to write a book for Travis after being intrigued by him in the previous books Burn for Me and Melt for Him. He is Megan's brother and friends with all of other characters Smith, Jamie, and Becker. And I thought there might be something lurking with him and the local dog trainer, Cara. Travis and Cara have history and current lust between them. But they want different things out of li
All kinds of cheesy but these books just flew by in this series. So I can't be that mad, right?

Consumed by You introduces you to Cara and Travis. He's a pro poker player and she's a dog trainer. At this point, I'm not sure who has the dream job. I feel like both could give you headaches.. but only one can give you dog snuggles and kisses. So.. yeah, dog trainer is the winner for me.

Other than that, it was pretty predictable. I mean I could've read this with my eyes shut and ears closed and I sti

Why did I wait so long to listen to this book?
Low drama, great characters, hot steamy sexy times and puppies!!!

Cara and Travis were hot and heavy in high school but then they went their own ways but now that they are both back in there home town sparks fly.

I love that they both know what they want so they do it. There isn’t any drama; there isn’t any miscommunication its honesty and lust that fuel these two.

It's rare for me to have complete and total trust in an author – to know that each book of theirs that I pick up will become an instant favorite – but Lauren Blakely is one such author. That’s why, when I started the third book in her Fighting Fire series, Consumed by You, I expected to encounter sexy firefighters, playful banter, and incomparably sensual love scenes. It was clear that Lauren Blakely had outdone herself once again when, after being less than ten percent into the book, I was furi ...more

What I absolutely love about Lauren Blakely's books is that she knows how to create a story that is the perfect combination of heart, humor and melt your kindle steam ;)

I have read MANY books by Lauren and I have never been disappointed. Her books have always captivated me, made me swoon, made me blush and yes I have even gotten angry at her characters, but that is what truly

First Lauren gave us the lovable hot shot Smith. Then came the big hearted sexy Becker. With those two incredibly delicious men, what more could you ask for?

Well, Lauren came with a most tempting offering... Travis Hansen.

Seriously, I don't know how Lauren keeps coming up with all these fine specimen of men. Hot doesn't even begin to describe how great these stories are. Be warned, you'll need an ice cold shower after this book, so enter at your own risk.

I really enjoyed this second chance friends with benefits romance! These are classic tropes for a reason and Lauren Blakely does them so well! Amazing performances by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon make this a real treat. I will never get tired of hearing these two (individually or together) and they captured the sexy, playful, vulnerable, and electric chemistry between Cara and Tyler perfectly.

Consumed by You takes us back to Hidden Oakes, a town where the firefighters are smoking hot. This is Travis, Megan’s brother, and Cara’s story and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Travis is a volunteer firefighter as well as a professional poker player. He has a penchant for dirty talk, but will never have a relationship due to his past. However, it doesn’t stop him from wanting some hot times with Cara.

“Does that sweet, sexy way you say my name mean you’re about ready to come on my tongue?” he asked, g

I always enjoy Lauren Blakely’s books. On Audible it’s even better with my favorite narrators.
Travis and Cara dated in high school. She is a dog trainer and he is a sexy gorgeous fireman. They are still attracted to each other but he doesn’t do relationships.
She makes a deal with him that he can’t refuse. And wow what a hot deal 🔥🔥❤️

I remember reading the previous book in this series, Melt for Him, and I was hoping we would get Travis's story and now here it is! Yay! This made me really happy because I couldn't wait to see Mr. 'I Don't Believe in Relationships Because They Only End in Heartache' fall in love.

I really enjoyed Cara and Travis's story. These two have seriously hot chemistry and they have history as well, having dated in high school and having had a few hook ups since then. Naturally, you're rooting

This was a great story of two people who have a history of dating and incredible sex. The problem is that Cara wants the white picket fence HEA and Travis doesn’t. The problem is neither can get the other out of each others system. So they come up with a plan to do just that. They have two weeks until Travis is in the Fireman's Bachelor Auction.

Another hit for Lauren Blakely. And HOT!!

This is the third installment in her firefighters series and it's definitely going to consume you.

Cara and Travis have danced around each other for years. Travis isn't the commitment type of guy so he steers clear of Cara. However, Cara isn't looking for anything long term. And when she offers her Travis something he just can't deny - things really heat up.

I absolutely love Lauren's writing and she's always able to keep things moving along and just as hot

3.5 stars I loved that the main character was a dog trainer and that she credited her relationship with Travis to their dogs. It was a cheesy romance story with the slightly cliche (but still enjoyable) trope of "she admits her love and he breaks her heart only to realise he's still in love with her."

The characters were enjoyable but not overly original, which seems to sum up the book well. Enjoyable but not original.

“This man consumed her. He stole every breath from her lungs. He could have anything from her. This was an undoing. This was him unraveling her stitch by stitch, unknitting all her control, so she was left only this hot, fevered, hungry thing. Needing him.”

Ginny Rose
Lately, whatever Lauren writes is both funny and spicy. In addition, an unexplained emotion builds in the center of my chest. This woman continues to be a verbal guru of story telling.

Travis Jensen is a volunteer fireman and a professional artist in the game of poker. Cara Bailey is the town's dog whisperer. When Travis adopts a dog, he seeks Cara's expertise despite the fact he has a sexual attraction. The funny thing is that sexual attraction is mutual, and in order to get to her life goals,

She was no longer the one calling the shots. He was, and he tugged her against him, aligning her body with his strong and very hard - incredibly hard - frame. Then, somehow they started dancing together. But this was no cotillion style or debutante ball dance. This was two bodies slowly grinding against each other. This was the dance of foreplay, a torturous tease of her swaying hips, and his erection pressed against her waist, and the heat inside her shooting sky high.
