Teased by Fire is a stand alone romantic comedy by Molly O’Hare. This is the third book I’ve read by Molly and I fall more in love with her with every one.

Olive Quinn is an introvert. She doesn’t do people. She loves staying inside the apartment she shares with her roommate, Miranda Parker and writing romance novels. Olive writes about love. She writes about Happily Ever Afters. But her characters are all from her imagination because Olive doesn’t know a thing about real love. H

This Is the first book from this author I have had the pleasure to read. And honestly I read the blurb and it sounded like the type of fun, lighthearted story I was in the mood for. And I am so glad I picked it up.

Molly's writing was great and I loved that the main character was a romance novelist. Olive was such an interesting character. I loved that she had all these kooks that made her, her and she didn't try to cover them up. And as someone who would rather be in my bedroom with my laptop s

Teased by Fire is the third romantic comedy by Molly O'Hare and having read all three, this book quickly became my favorite. Don't get me wrong - I loved Hollywood Dreams and Stumbling into Him but Teased by Fire is simply amazing.

I love the characters this author writes because they are real. If you've read my reviews before you will realize that I'm not about a size 2 supermodel that gets the billionaire most of the time. My most favorite 5 star reads are almost always the normal girl gets the

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been dying to get my hands on Hank and Olive’s story since I was Teased by the blurb. See what I did there? Sorry. I’ll stop. No one does romcom better than Molly O’Hare and this book brings all of her talent right to the forefront. I laughed so hard I cried while reading this but she perfectly balances the hysterical comedy and brilliant banter with true sweep you off your feet, feel it in your soul romance creating the kind of romcom that steals your heart while it k ...more
Olive avoids anything social, she lives in her head and in the stories she writes. Although her closest friend and roommate has decided to move out for her new job, that is not what has Olive in a tailspin. Olive is furious that her new roommate is Hank, her nemesis, her friends brother and bane of her existence.

Hank has his own agenda, he has always secretly had a thing for Olive and he wants to find out if there is something there. He knows he has a reputation and Olive has made it clear she i

Thoroughly enjoyed this read - it was hot, funny, and heartwarming. And as for a cat named Dog, with all her funny ways, that just added the icing on the cake of an already great read!

This is my third book by Molly, and by far, the best.
I went into it not really knowing what to expect, and it had me rolling from the very beginning and swooning just as hard.
First, we have Olive. Who, admittedly, she was a soul sister just from the first mention of a zombie apocalypse. She's a bit of a recluse, who sometimes maybe doesn't shower every day, wears her pajamas a lot and prefers books to humans.
Then we have Hank. Oh, dear LORD Hank. I knew Hank was going to be trouble from the w

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Teased by Fire by Molly O'Hare is the story of Olive Quinn and Hank Parker.
Hank has been attracted to his sister Miranda's best friend Olive for a long time. Never acting on it
because of the unsaid code of not messing with your sister's friends. But he is around 34 years old and when he learns his sister is moving out of her room in Olive's apartment, he grabs his chance to act of his feelings by moving in to his sister's vacant room. Olive is introvert that has a big imagination that writes r
“I’ve been in love with her for as long as I can remember,” he admitted. “Olive’s special. She’s the kind of girl you love with your whole heart or nothing at all. She makes me be a better person, Miranda. When I’m with her, I feel like I can do anything. Be anything. She’s my other half.”

Oh my heart!

I loved this book. This is the second one I've read my Molly O'Hare but not the last.

The H, Hank was UH-MA-ZING! He was just about perfect. Emotional but tough & head over heels for the h, Olive

This was a fast and easy read, I enjoyed but would not reread. The characters were easy and not very deep in my opinion and if their age hadn’t been mentioned through the book I would have guessed them to be at least ten years younger than they actually were. Their actions were more than childish and while I laughed about some of the teasing, most of it was just too much, it seemed too forced in my opinion.
And while I know a few hermits and prefer

Once again Molly O’Hare has blown me away with another sensational book!!!!
Teased by Fire is the perfect story if you are looking for a binge worthy rom-com!!!

Oh Olive! You are the perfect character and if you were real, you would definitely be my best friend! She has weirdness in spades, sass and when Hank moves in, she also gets more than she bargains for in ways of research!
Hank is the perfect specimen! Gorgeous bod, gorgeous heart and it has always belonged to the girl he thought was off lim

I was so excited to read this book when I read the blurb. The book did not disappoint! I love the characters, including the pets. They are so true to life and the story makes sense and flows well. Hank will make you swoon, you'll love Olive, and you'll laugh a lot. I highly recommend this read!!
~4.5 STARS~

Teased by Fire is the perfect combination of steam, romance, and humor!!!!

The book opens with Olive steaming mad that her bestie, Miranda, is moving out. She isn’t mad that Miranda is leaving. She is sad, but she would never ask her friend to turn down her dream job. No, she is mad that Miranda’s brother, Hank, is moving in. She has worked hard to maintain her anti-social existence, and Hank is the complete opposite. This girl is clueless about what’s coming her way….see Hank has alw

This was my first book by Molly O’Hare and I throughly enjoyed it. It’s a quick book but I thought it was a wonderful mix of laughter, sassiness, and lust/love.

The story follows Olive Quinn and Hank Parker. Olive is quirky, antisocial, and all around fantastic. I love that writing was her profession. It’s always fun to read about authors in books. I found Olive to be very relatable because of her quirky mind and her love of books. She had a horrible upbringing and God awful pare

Olive is in hell. Her best friend is moving out with only two days notice and told her brother about it. Now Olive is stuck with Hank the Tank as her roomie. Hank has been in love with Olive for a long time. Too afraid to make a move, he sees this opportunity as a sign to go after what he wants. Olive just wants to avoid him and any other human interaction at all costs. But Hank isn't called the Tank for nothing and before she knows it Olive is enjoying Hank and his company, just not the cat he ...more

Someone get me the fire hose, Teased by Fire is scorching hot!! Molly O'Hare brings us sweet, saucy, and hot all in one book! Hank had my pulse thumping, while Olive had me laughing my butt off. No, seriously. Hank is a firefighter, yum, who has been in love with his little sister's best friend. He takes advantage of a situation and puts himself front and center into Olive's life.

Teased By Fire is a romantic comedy. Olive is super PO’d that her best friend and roommate has to move out and has her hot, firefighter brother her move in as soon as she leaves.  (Not to mention he brings his huge Maine Coon cat named Dog)  Hank has been in love with Olive for years and sees his sister leaving as his chance to make Olive his.  A pretty funny story ensues with different pranks and how their personalities clash. On a more serious note it also shows how some familial relationships ...more

Teased by Fire is the third standalone by Molly O'Hare and it's definitely one of the best. The book had my jaw hurting as I was smiling throughout the book and laughing out loud numerous times. I love Molly's characters and all the animals involved with them and this one was no different. I loved Hank and Olive and I am specially in love with Dog. She's the best. If you want to read a rom-com, this is definitely for you! I definitely recommend this book! Can't wait to read more of her works!♥️

Olive and Hank’s story is hilarious, fun and entertaining from the very beginning. This is a well written story, which is steamy and filled with many laugh-out-loud moments, and I was captivated throughout this addictive page turner. I look forward to reading more from this talented author, and I highly recommend her work for all readers!

Olive knows how to get a reaction out of Hank, “I wouldn’t have forgotten you.” He placed his hand over his chest like he’d been shot. “Do you not have any faith in your man?” Olive is a saucy little thing, “oh, for effs sake, is this what I have to look forward to? A jealous Hank Parker is an annoying Hank Parker.” I liked this book, I really liked Olive and Hank.

Molly O'Hare has such a talented, addictive, and original writing style that she's already on my list of go to addictions. I never thought she would top Stumbling Into Him on the humor front, but I was completely wrong, as Teased by Fire had me spitting out my drink from laughing so hard. This story follows Olive, who is young woman who really doesn't like human interaction, as she stays locked up in her apartment writing erotic romance under a pen name.

I'm a sucker for sister/brother's best friend romance novels, so when I read the summary for this one, I was all in. The book was good, but not great.

This book! It was a stinkin riot! Hilarious!

Olive is somewhat of a recluse, she has a defensive personality, she write romance books, not just romance, its erotica pretty much. Only her best friend Miranda knows about it. She has a pseudonym name she goes by as an author, so she's safe there. She dislikes being around people, she likes being around on her own with her thoughts with the exception of her bff, Miranda who lives with her.

Teased By Fire was a funny and sexy book about a sexy fireman and an author. I believe this is the first book I have read from this author but it will not be my last. Teased By Fire had me giggling more than once especially when it came to Dog, because I had a manecoon once and yeah she was something else just like Dog. If you are confused about what I am talking about read the book to find out.

When Olive’s best friend and roommate lands her dream job, she has to move across country. Not wanting to leave Olive with all of the rent, the roommate subleases her half of the apartment to her brother Hank. The only issue is that Hank is Olive’s high school crush, and the idea of spending any time at all with him is not appealing at all. But she can’t afford the apartment alone. So she grudgingly accepts him as a roommate.

Firefighter Hank has been attracted Olive ever since she hit puberty. S

I received a review copy of the book before release for an honest review.

This book was soooooooo good. It features a forbidden best friend brother romance but it also features a hot fireman who has been in love with the heroine for YEARS and he becomes roomies. It features a little insta love but it also has everything , laughter and tears and a happy ever after storyline but the getting there was so fun.
