My girl left me for a rockstar.
I thought I was in love.
There wasn't anything left of me. So I ran.

She was tattooed and badass.
She was the piece I never knew I was missing.

This book is part of a charity anthology and shouldn’t be passed up! It’s hot stuff! I really do love an anthology! This anthology provides great stories from a plethora of authors that allows me to read favorites and find new authors at the same time.
In Crash & Burn by Kristen Hope Mazzola you get to meet Mitch again and find out more about his story. In the crashing series we met Mitch, but this time we get to know him more and how he rebuilds his life after his girlfriend left him for a

This book is part of the Burn Me anthology as well as Kristen’s Crashing Back Down series. Mitch is starting over after the woman he thought he was going to spend the rest of his life left him. Bryn has just finished her probationary period as a firefighter. While getting a tattoo to commemorate this she meets Mitch. They hit it off and spend the night together.

There's just something HOT about a firefighter... and when you put two of them together... well, let's go ahead and be cliched... because they burned the pages off! I absolutely loved everything about Crash & Burn except that it was too short ;) perfect in the format it was in... but I just always want MORE! I loved the chemistry right off the bat and then the sultry, sexy- correction, smokin' hot tension between Bryn & Mitch. Even though it was a short in the midst of other great storie ...more

For a short read it was steamy. This story can be found in the Burn Me Anthology to raise money for The Hope For Heroes Foundation (a good cause).
Two firefighters wronged and are brought together by fate.
This was a perfect story for the Burn Me Anthology. Two Firefighters burned by the ones they loved and are starting new. Mitch moved to start over and Bryn will be his new co-worker after they hit the sheets hot and heavy. Kristen you have given your characters passion and heart. Your writing

We get a taste of the love story that is Bryn Malloye and Mitch Katz....and I do mean just a taste. This is a novella jam packed with heat, lust, laughs and angst.

Ever have a fight with someone, say things you don't mean and then wish for a do over. There's some of that in here.

I will say what I love about KHM's female characters, they are usually strong and independent with a touch of girlie to them. They have jobs other than nurse, secretary and those other stereo types we sometimes see. And

I received an ARC for my honest review. This story can be found in the Burn Me Anthology to raise money for The Hope For Heroes Foundation (a good cause).

This was a fast read and I got everything I expected of this Novella. It was a good read and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Bryn and Mitch meet and it's definitely like insta-lust-love. They are both wronged by the ones who came before them and wind up working together at the same fire house after they have a passionate night.

I absolutely loved this one. Extremely well written with two great characters. I cant wait to hopefully get so much more from them. This is a novella about Mitch and Brynn. These two characters have very strong personalities and are in a very difficult line of work. Mitch is new to the city and looking to start over after his ex leaves him for a rockstar. Brynn is wanting to start over after her last boyfriend cheated on her. From the moment these two meet it is instant chemistry. You can easily ...more

Crash and Burn is Mitch & Bryn’s story in a short, quick and hot novella. I need more from this couple. They are combustible and exploded when they got together. Kristen Hope Mazzola never disappoints with the characters she brings to life and these two are no different.

Mitch is still nursing a broken heart, so he’s left everything behind to start a new life in a new city at a new firehouse. Bryn is the only woman at the firehouse and has everyone’s respect. But the newest firefighter is to

I loved this story. Both are firefighters. Bryn a sassy and tough, and Mitch is close to perfect and worthy of many swoons, as is anyone who binge watches Supernatural. Their connection felt natural and the sex is about as hot as those fires they put out.
Going in, I wasn't aware this was a short and I was so not prepared for this book to end. I want more!! With that said, very excited to know there will be more Mitch and Bryn in the near future.
What I love most though is the writing. I've read

3.6 from me on this one. ...

Mitch's fiance cheated on him, which of course, ended their relationship. He moves to another city to get away from everything and everybody. He's a firefighter and has accepted a new job in a new town. He seeks out the local tattoo parlor to try to cover over some existing ink. It's there he meets Bryn, who's also a firefighter.

While Bryn is at the tattoo parlor a hot guy walks in and they hit it off. One thing leads to another and know how that goes.

Crash & Burn by Kristen Hope Mazzola is short, sexy novella centering around firefighters Mitch and Brynn. Both of which have been hurt in the past.

From the moment that Brynn and Mitch meet they have an intense chemistry, a strong attraction to one another. What was only supposed to be a fling develops into more!!!

This story is EVERYTHING I LOVE about about insta-lust. This short story is SEXY AS HELL!!! Another thing I LOVED

So far I’ve had the pleasure of reading Crash and Burn by Kristen Hope Mazzola and let me tell you, this story is HOT!

I mean who doesn't love a man in a uniform? Especially a firefighter!

Bryn and Mitch’s relationship starts out like fire and gasoline, hot and passionate. But like all good things, they have their rough patches.

Their story had just enough drama, twists, turns and a whole lot of heat! If you're looking for a 'quickie’ (see what I did there ;)) then this story and the other twelve

This book was just enough, just enough to make you want more of Mitch and Bryn.

Mitch and Bryn are both fire fighters, and they have one night of passion that will knock your socks off, but what they don't realize till after the fact is that Mitch will be working in the same house as Bryn and she does not mix work with pleasure. But Bryn is not able to stay away, how is this going to work between her and Mitch???

I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of Crash & Burn by Kristen Hope Mazzola. Bryn and Mitch are such explosive characters. It's an emotional and hot story. I could not get enough of them. I wanted this book to keep going. The chemistry and connection between Bryn and Mitch is magnetic. It's nice to read a book where the male character is the softy and the female is the harder one. I highly recommend reading this book.

Another quick, steamy read from Kristen Hope Mazzola. I have read almost every and have loved everyone of them. This is the story of Mitch and Brynn. Both are firefighters and are attracted to each other from the first time they saw each other in the tattoo shop. They hit if off automatically and it didn't stop there. If you like badass females and super sweet males then this is the book for you. Little drama, some secrets, and some sexiness all wrapped in one book.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. This is a quick steamy read with a HEA ending.
Bryn is a sassy tattooed girl who just finished her probation period and is now a firefighter. She knows how to hang with the guys and put them in their place.
Mitch just transferred to a new firehouse. But he never expected to see the sassy girl from the tattoo parlor again.
I absolutely loved this book and definitely need more from this couple. Definitely a must read.

Mitch moves to a new city. He needed a new start after his girlfriend ran off and left him. Bryn’s last boyfriend cheated on her. So they both are wary. They meet at a tattoo parlor and go out for drinks having an amazing night.

When they find out later they both work at the same firehouse they decide to keep their friends with benefits relationship to themselves.

This Novella is the perfect steamy love story and another hit for Kristen Hope Mazzola!

Crash & Burn - What a tease KMazz is. This was such a good story. If you are a fan of the Crashing series, then you know that Mitch is a spin off, but after he was dumped, the universe owed him and he definitely gained by snagging Bryn. Destiny just put the two of them into the right spot at the right time. This was a fast read with sass and heat! Loved it!

Crash & Burn by Kristen Hope Mazzola is one of my favorites from her to date. Mitch and Bryn's story is a perfect mixture of sweet and sultry. Both characters are so relatable, with wonderful strengths. Bryn fights to stay the strong woman she's worked so hard to become and Mitch is the tough exterior with a heart of gold. I absolutely loved their story.

Ah Mitch. I love Mitch in Crash & Burn. He is finally getting what he deserves in love. Bryn is one of those girls who can be one of the guys yet is strong in her own way. She is everything Mitch needs and just wow do they heat up the pages in this one. Crush & Burn is a hot read. I mean come on who doesn't love Firefighters. I can't wait for more Mitch and Bryn to come.

Great short story that was so hot, I was afraid to get burned. They are both firefighters, I love storylines like that. I only wish it were a full length novel instead of a short story. Short stories are rushed through. But I would love to get to read the full story when it’s written. I recommend it.

Who doesn't love a man in uniform let alone a fire fighter? Let me tell you this book is so hot your kindle may catch on fire. I love the sexy and sweet chemistry these two had right from the start. Some things are just meant to be or are they? Mitch and Bryn are playing with fire and somebody might get burned.
