Tantalizing, atmospheric, and steamy!

Driven by Fire is a passionate, alluring tale that mixes the hardworking, focused Piper who’s determined to finally take some risks and put her own dreams and goals first, and the charming, secretive Brandon who after having a years break is finally ready to head back to his fast-paced, high society lifestyle.

The writing is smooth and seductive. The characters are hesitant, kindhearted, and endearing. And the plot, set during the wildfires that ravaged Northe

This erotic romance follows the story of Piper and Brandon–two seemingly simple people at first. As you read through, then you find out that there are more about them than what meets the eye. Brandon is introduced quite fast and detailed - it is easy to identify him. He is a confident man, who knows who he is. In no time, you'll have a crush on him. Piper, though, is a bit different. At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about this character. She seems all over the place, but as I kept reading, the ...more

Today we are reviewing a book that is spicy and sweet at the same time. Eden Rayna asked me to give an honest review of "Driven by Fire," and I picked it up on Kindle Unlimited.

Fun fact, my husband, Mr. Y was a long-haul truck driver for a long time, and once upon a time, I went with him for two weeks to find out more about how it worked. With this added bit of knowledge, the story took me to that memory of my two-week road trip, and I appreciated the memory. However, I need to point out, and t

The beginning was slow for me so I had trouble getting into the story and connecting with the characters. I also didn’t like the inner monologues and felt that they were a bit too long. I actually had to put the book down a few times cause I just wasn’t feeling it. I did think the writing style was really easy to read, but for some reason... there just wasn't enough drama or excitement like I was hoping. I'm just so used to romances that can effortlessly charm me and instantly get me hooked.

This was a good book. I loved the characters in the book. However I feel as though more emphasis should have been on the HEA ending. It was much too short for me. Piper walks in on Chad, her boyfriend for the past three years, with another woman. She randomly throws clothes into her duffel bag and the thing she keeps thinking is how could she let her life get so out of control. She barely knew Chad and followed him to a new place where she knew no one and left all of her own dreams behind. She h ...more

First up Eden Rayna has done a fantastic job with this steamy novel but the fact it's her debut is very impressive!

The story flowed beautifully with a backstory from Piper that unfortunately a lot of women can relate to. And Brandon, well he's just every woman's fantasy written with words! But that being said what follows is a hot, sexy and quick paced love story that weaves its way together to create a book you can't quite put down.

I have never been to Canada but the author did a superb job in

First of all, this is Eden Rayna's debut novel and I have to say I am very impressed.

I very much loved that fact that that it takes place in Canada and that Eden is Canadian. I don't read so many books that take place in Canada so it was nice to be able to read something that takes place in my Country.

This erotic story is a very good one that I have already recommended to some friends and I do recommend to you all who love erotic romance. This book was one I could not put down because the story

I really enjoyed the Canadian Contemporary Romance. This story followed a girl named Piper, fresh out of a relationship with her cheating ex. Stuck in Northern Alberta in a one-horse-town she unexpectedly meets a truck driver, Brandon, who is passing through town. With undeniable chemistry between the two, it is no surprise when they decide to hook up for the night. But what happens when one night turns into two? Then three?

This book is an erotic romance novel featuring Piper and Brandon. It follows their love story and the choices they make whilst being evacuated during a wildfire.
Driven by fire has some great characters and I loved the relationship between Piper and her best friend Danielle. There are lots of obstacles in the way of Piper and Brandon being together so you will have to read this book to see if they can overcome everything

Driven By Fire is a debut novel by Canadian writer Eden Rayna. I was asked if I would be interested in reading it for an honest review. I love discovering new, up and coming authors so I jumped at the chance.

Brandon and Piper’s characters were likeable and well developed. It was a very realistic read and followed both their lives from the moment they met. It was quite a long read but very detailed.

I look forward to seeing Eden’s writing as she explores and deve

Their passion might match the heat of the wildfires if they let it. Piper walked in on her boyfriend and now she's walking on the side of the road and Brandon took long-haul trucking after a messy divorce. They met by chance but life gives them more than one opportunity to be together.
The characters are engaging, titillating and amazing.

Piper and Brandon have an immediate connection, and it is easy to slip into the groove of their story. The threatening wild-fire helps to build a sense of urgency and intensity, which I feel totally fits with Piper and Brandon’s relationship. As the fires draw near it becomes evident some very hard choices are imminent.

Piper meets Brandon on the night she left her boyfriend for cheating. This couple absolutely had insta-lust, but they have many obstacles to overcome if they want to get their HEA. Good story with definitely strong and vivid characters with lots of hot, steamy scenes. Very good read!

Piper and Brandon meet by chance in the small town of Fort Mackay and what starts out as a one night stand turns into so much more. There is a wildfire burning that has kept Brandon in town for longer than expected which means he gets to spend more time with Piper.

What a great story, really enjoyed it. I liked how they were together and how their relationship developed, and the sex scenes were hot and plentiful! I liked how Brandon was gentle and supporting, and how Piper regained self-assurance with him. I understood her decision at the end, after all, he had a year to get over his divorce, she only had one week. I was a bit disappointed with his reaction to it, a bit immature. But a happy ending at last, so satisfying! Few unbelievable details though - ...more

Scorching hot! Sweet! Deeply emotional! Erotic with a capital E!Driven by Fire is everything you could want from a romance read.
Yet, it is so much more. A study of two lovers previously messed up by nasty breakups; an emotional journey into being yourself; learning to trust again.
The chemistry between Piper and Brandon is exceptional. I loved the fact that it was Brandon, who pursued a relationship and did most of the chasing, whereas all Piper wanted to start with was a no-strings episode.
