This was the first time I read a book by this author. Knowing it was part of the Misadventures series I knew it couldn't be bad. Plus I kept hearing great things about it I had to see what it was about. I'm so very happy I did. I love meeting new authors. I got introduced to Julie and she was so sweet. She told me to sign up for the arc and see if I liked it.

I freaking loved the book from the first page. I couldn't put it down one can't go wrong with a sexy firefighter who is so loving and in

So, Julie Morgan is a new author to me, so I didn't know what to expect going into this... and I am glad I got the chance to read this. I love this series for this reason.. I have discovered so many new to me authors that I will go on to read more books by them, and I most certainly will be with Ms. Morgan.

Cara is a kindergarten teacher and after having her heart broken once before, she had focused her time on working hard and building a career for herself. She won't let anything or anyone get

Cara well Kindergarten vixen I guess all things come to those that wait and fight for what they want. A guarded heart helps if you shield it from the right people. What you learned was a lesson of love, friendship, and an open heart. Noah and Marshall taught you that and more. Noah taught you how to never give up and to believe in love and you two as a unit. Marshall taught you that a bond between a parent and child doesn't mean there is not room for one more.

This was my first book by Julie and

Misadventures with a Firefighter by Julie Morgan is smoking hot and incredibly sweet. Firefighter Noah Hughes is a widower and single dad. Cara Murphy is a New York City kindergarten teacher with scars on her heart. But when these two get together it is HOT. I really enjoyed this story but recommend a fan and a tall cool drink.

When the Misadventures series first started, we all knew there would be growing pains. Well seems those pains were all for the good if we can take anything from Misadventures with a Firefighter. Julie Morgan brought us into a relationship unknown and hooked us with whit, compassion and lots of hot sexy action. What else could ya ask for?

Cara is independent, smart, successful and determined. But Cara has been hurt before and has shielded her heart from anything close to a relationship. Teacher or

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. This is the first Misadventure i've read and my girl Julie has me hooked now. These characters are so my people and who doesn't love a hot firefighter who also happens to be a dedicated single father raising a boy on his own. The passion, the attraction and the mutual connection that is more the merely physical between these two makes my heart happy to read and when it is all at risk I just want to shake them and make them see what they have and I want to fight for them to ...more

Cara is a kindergarten teacher with a great future ahead of her. Cara is happy being single and wants it that way after having a rough past. Noah is a firefighter that lives for his five year old son. He doesn't trust easily and has a damaged past. The couple meet at a club one night and end up having a one night stand. The second meeting Cara and Noah have they know they can't be together as it will threaten Cara's career. Will the two be able to work things out? A sexy read that I recommend.

This was my first “Misadventure” and it did not disappoint. Julie did an amazing job creating characters that draw you in and had scorching chemistry.

Firefighters have always been my choice of a man in uniform and holy cow, was Noah one to crush on.

I can’t wait to read more books from this line.

Omg Noah and Cara are one hot couple. I was so happy when they decided to can the whole friends with benefits idea and explain their hearts. I love how Cara embraced being a stepmother and how Noah felt he could finally move on. The biggest blow was Cara's lousy best friend, Erin. Gah what a witch but the sweet Karma she got was amazing. I absolutely loved this story.

Julie Morgan is a new-to-me author, and she did not disappoint.

I really enjoyed the story between Cara and Noah. It was sexy, and full of heart and emotion. There were some moments where I felt like it tried to be angsty but didn't quite pan out that way.

I loved Noah's relationship with his little boy. You could feel the love between them.

The arc and pacing of the story worked well and our characters had great support systems from their families. I also liked how unashamed Cara was with her

Absolutely loved this new addition to the Misadventures books. What a beautifully written love story. Cara has it all going for her. One bad experience has her closed off from finding love. That is until single hot dad Noah enters the picture. Together these two overcome heartbreak. So it seems until Cara supposedly friend turns her back on her. These two just have to let all outside forces go, put love first.

I think one of the most frustrating things about books is when you go into reading one and really want to like it, but you just ....can't. The premise of this book is great.... A Teacher falls in love with the parent of a student and they have to deal with the pitfalls of that along with developing a relationship. Unfortunately, the execution of that promising premise left a lot to be desired for me.

Gorgeous single father who just so happens to be a firefighter, plus a gorgeous teacher!? Yes, please! Julie Morgan is a new to me author and I can’t wait to read more from her. I DEVOURED this book. I couldn’t put it down.

Cara Murphy may seem like a rich, beautiful, club girl. However, there is so much more to that. She is a kindergarten teacher and working her way to her tenure and a major promotion at the school she teaches it. Celebrating one last time before the start of a new school year,

I think I have read all the Misadventures so far and this one is an excellent bonus of extreme heat and strong characters who do not disappoint!
Cara is a determined kindergarten teacher who knows what she wants and how to get it. Her career means everything to her. She is strong, confident, and independent. It wasn't easy for her to start over after a broken heart, living in New York, and starting at a new school, but she did it without apologies.

This is my first book by Julie Morgan but I've read several of the Misadventures stories. To date I've always enjoyed them so I'm sad to say this one just wasn't my style.

While I've always enjoyed the parent teacher storyline, the way the "relationship" here began really hindered my enjoyment. From the beginning, I felt the book was truly a collection of sexcapades. If that's the intent of the book, then it was well done, yes, the sexcapades were hot. I, however, really missed the

This is one fire that you do not want to extinguish and it will just keep burning higher. Cara is a teacher who has had her heart broken and is leery of getting involved again. Noah is a firefighter and father to a five-year-old boy and he is not looking for a relationship. The last weekend prior to the opening of the new school year, Cara is out at a club with friends and meets Noah. Things get a bit steamy but then they go their separate ways after an explosive night.

Sparks that turn into Flames....

I am declaring this book a 5-alarm fire read. Noah Hughes and Cara Murphy are so hot they could start a fiery blaze with the chemistry they have together. Cara is a school teacher who loves her job and doesn't have time for a half decent social life. But all that changes when she hooks up with Noah. Noah is a firefighter who is a gorgeous hot firestorm. He is a widow raising his son, a son who is his top priority in his life.
