One-night stands have rules for a reason.

All Danielle wanted was one night with the cowboy. One night of fun to get her through until her next day off when she could come back into the city and find another distraction from the quiet life she leads in remote Northern Alberta. How she ended up eating breakfast with the cowboy and making plans to spend the day together was b

This is a NEW to me author & books! I am grateful for receiving an ARC. This is a Novella, the story of Danielle & Kirk, it's one hell of a way to start a series I'll tell you that right now!!

Danielle is a short, spunky, happy go lucky fun girl! On a mission to supply her friends with endless stories of her hook-up's. When she meet's Kirk, it's a hair-raising sizzling kind of feeling, for her. When he not only buys her a drink, but also is close enough for strangers not to be, tracin

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Just a Fling by Eden Rayna is a novella in her Driven by Fire series. It is a prequel to the other book in the series but is a standalone story.

"There's something about a cowboy in the city that makes women go wild."

I really liked a lot of aspects of Just a Fling. I really enjoyed the characters themselves. Danielle doesn't let her short stature hold her back from holding her own. She is sassy, smart and funny. She enjoys going out dancing with he

This novella was cute! I was hooked since I read the synopsis of this story. Any romance with a cowboy is going to be a sexy read. This novella followed Danielle and Kirk. Danielle was hilarious. She was spunky and sassy in a good way. Kirk was sexy as hell from the very beginning of this short story. He was confident without being cocky. He was overall charming and I’m wondering where my cowboy is?? The only thing that didn’t seem right about Kirk was his name, just because I didn’t think his n ...more

Wowsa! This is one hot and spicy romance! 💞💓🔥💞

Danielle is not a very trusting person and she has her reasons for it. So when she meets Kirk while out clubbing, she sets her sights on him as her hookup for the evening because she doesn't do relationships. But she hadn't counted on the emotional connection with Kirk and now it's turned into more than a hookup.💖

This is an interesting read about friendships, love, and trust that will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.💗🔥💕

It seems she has a long list of rules for her fun. But she still intends to let loose. He wants her and is ready to bust through her rules. He wants her and plans to get her. Exciting, hot, enjoyable, humor and so much more. I recommend it. I was given a review copy and voluntarily review it.

Kirk and Danielle certainly seemed like they belong together, but because of insecurities and inexperience they really have a bumpy road trying to achieve their HEA. I enjoyed these two as very well portrayed characters and found the story to be interesting. Good read!

What a great introduction to a series. This book was a great read and hit home reading about the forrst fires at Fort Mac. This was a great introduction to so many characters that I cannot wait to read their stories this book was about Danielle and Kirk. A small town girl goes into the city for a night of clubbing and wrangles herself an honest to goodness cowboy. Even though this is not an easy road for either of them, time works its magic and fate steps in to assist.

This was fantastic!

The perfect closure to my other favourite couple from “Driven By Fire”

If you have not read these, you really should. Eden’s writing will have you lapping it right up and wishing there were more men like this in the world!

I was given the privilege to get the ARC. I really enjoyed this book. Danielle and Kirk are so cute together. They clicked immediately and are fire. Danielle is quite a stubborn lady and afraid to change her ways. It's Kirk who change her. Kirk is a really charming man. Pretty much swoon worthy. There's no huge drama or any "bad guys" that will separate them. It's only their own decision due to emotions. I would actually like it if there's an epilogue. I want to know what holds for them in the f ...more

I received an ARC of this book and I voluntarily give my review.

This book snuck up on me and swept me away! I fell hard for Kirk and Danielle. Dannielle is a strong independent woman who is in no way looking for a relationship (can you say foreshadowing?) but even knowing that when she meets her hero she would be a goner, I was not prepared for the perfect blend of sweet seductive romance and dirty sexy man. Kirk was the perfect blend of romance and kink and was infatuated with Danielle. I staye

Just a Fling, Chapter Two

Disclosure: I am NOT a romance fiction reader. In fact, I think this is the first ever romance I have read to completion (and not just the first three pages of) in my entire life. So, this review should probably be taken with a grain of salt. Being the adult that I am, I am no stranger to rated R bedroom content, but the romance novel is something new that I have brought to bed with me…

Very well-written novella! Exquisite writing with fun characters. Danielle and Kirk are perfect for each other; they seem to have each met their match. The scenes are described in lustful detail that is believable

Eden Rayna brings us Danielle and Kirk’s story. This is a prequel novella to book 1 Driven by Fire.

I enjoyed seeing Danielle’s story as she was such a great secondary character in Driven by Fire. The chemistry between Danielle and Kirk is hot. I love Danielle’s sassy, happy go lucky and I know what I want attitude. She is such a spitfire and I liked that she isn’t helpless and is super Independent. She is the life of the party where as Kir

I read this as the fist in the series, and enjoyed both of the characters and their story. A bit slow around the middle, but then it picked up. I feel there should be a bit more detail about how they got out of the town before the fire, but otherwise it was coherent and enjoyable.

A sweet and sexy quickie!

I enjoyed reading this novella.
The characters - Danielle and Kirk - which are introduced in Driven by Fire - are likable, and their chemistry is sweet, sexy, and sometimes scorching hot.
I would have loved to see this novella being made into a full-blown novel, because I would love to know much more about this pair.
Having said that, though: as far as novellas go, this one is a read you won't want to miss.

This book was just what I needed to give me a short break from the chaos life had going on. I did find some editing errors in words just an fyi in case you choose to update the book. The changes in language usage stuck out to me too like the word centimeter as an example. This was a great read and how could you not love the characters. Strong woman and strong man!
