This companion novella is hot, sexy, and a little open ended because I'm dying to write a sequel to the couple!

Carina Alyce is the pen name of the Amazon best-selling author and full-time triple board-certified physician who started writing dramatic medical romances after twenty years in the trenches of health care. She promises she never had sex in a call room – the mattresses are not comfortable – or had a fistfight with a patient – though she did work as a fight doc at the Octagon. Her MetroGen romances are sexy, snarky, and real with all the heat and drama of the lives of our first responders.

She writes the MetroGen Downtown series that tackles the personal and professional challenges facing our front line providers. Her stories have the drama of Grey’s Anatomy, the comedy of Scrubs, the sexiness of Outlander, and the medical details of Forensic Files. They feature fast, witty dialogue, strong women with goals, and quirky ensemble casts because the hospital is full of smart weirdos who are willing to save your life.

When not working or writing, she is a brown belt in judo, an avid reader, and an attending surgeon in stuffed animal veterinary medicine for her six kids. (No one trusts her husband’s medical skills because he’s just a lawyer.) You can join her Prescriptions for Love Newsletter here!

~~~Palpitation by Ofelia Martinez~~~

Palpitation is a sweet steamy novella from The Heroes
With Heat And Heart Volume 2 charity anthology.
Your best friend's younger siblings are always off
limits- Leonardo Moreno was no stranger to this rule
but nothing could have stopped the chemistry he
shared with his best friend's little sister. One fainted
night leads them to doing something they really have
no business doing.

And nearly a decade later Leonardo has had enough
with wondering what could have been with Camila. So,
he heads back home with one mission in mind - to find
Camila and make her his. Once and for all, and so
ensues a long overdue whirlwind romance. With all the
feels packed into one sweet little novella.
loved Leo's realism, sincerity and vulnerability.
Camila's headstrong nature and the fact that I picked
up a little Spanish from reading this

***Palpitation by Ofelia Martinez***

This is my new standard for steamy, HEA novellas. I love that Leo & Cami did not have some unrealistic insta-love, but rather found themselves meeting again by chance, and seeing where feelings took them. The story did not feel rushed, like some novellas do.

As always, Ofelia dished up wonderful characters, that fit so well into the world she already created, and added the heat she gives readers in her rockstar romance.

My review is for Palpitation by Ofelia Martinez

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

This is a short story, and I was left wanting more of Camila and Leonardo!

It is a brother’s best friend/medical romance.
It is fast pace and steamy!!!

Can we get Andres’s story? 😜

Every time I read some of the ‘dichos’, is it Wife Old Tales in English? 🤔…. Anyways, I was smiling while reading at them because Lord knows how many times I heard the exact same ‘dichos’ while growing up! 😁 Which I now say them to my kiddos!! 🤣🤣

Can’t wait to get my copy of Heroes with Heat and Heart, Vol. 2 and check out the rest of the stories!!!!

I received an ARC copy of Palpitation by Ofelia Martinez and this is my voluntary review of the story.

Absolutely loved this short story by Ofelia Martinez. Leo and Cami were so cute and loved their chemistry. This quick, second chance, brother’s best friend, forbidden romance is spicy, sweet and charming. Ofelia delivers the same heartwarming, beautiful story and makes you fall in love with the Heartland Metro Hospital world all over again. Definitely recommend.

Finding His Way Home to Her Heart by Heather Scarlett 5 stars
Alex is coming home from war to see that his job, his house, and even his bed belong to another person.
Sam needed a job and a place to live, and she has been happy for a year until his boss arrived threatening her stability.
A very emotional story. I just love when I see the feelings between the characters on their faces, in the way they touch comforting each other and when with just one look they know what they are thinking or what they mean.

Falling for the Firefighter by Tracy Krimmer 4 stars
Blaise is a firefighter who is very popular among the nurses at the hospital, and he flirts with all of them or so everybody thinks.
Alaina is an ER nurse who works hard. She meets Blaise when she had a problem with a monoxide detector one night.
Alaina has problems trusting men due to a previous experience and it is very difficult for her to trust Blaise.
I liked this book. It was entertaining and quick to read.

Palpitations by Ofelia Martinez

In this Novella we meet Camila is a doctor working in the ER and Leo, a paramedic who happened to grow up together. Leo was her big brother‘s best friend who she fell in love with. He went to join the service and left without a word despite the fact that they both shared a kiss before he left. They are both home now and she sees him one night while working in Sparks fly, and they realize they still have feelings for each other.

Ofelia did not disappoint in this story. I highly recommend it.

Running the bar is important to both of them for completely different reasons. Alex wants to feel useful again. Sam is hiding from her dangerous ex.
This was an incredible story and I loved every bit of it!.

This review is for Wildflower by D.M. Davis- review will be updated as I read more.

If you’re looking for a heartfelt, quick read that will make you swoon look no further. Reid is seriously the sweetest guy, like a total heartthrob that made my heart flutter and gave me all the heart eyes. I loved how independent Daisy is and how she was willing to come out of her shell for her own happiness.

After that ending I can’t wait for more.

Wildflower, Wild Duet, Book 1 by D.M. Davis is a swoon worthy, slow burn romance that melts your heart, and your panties, as Reid heats up the fire between him and his Wildflower. Grab this Heat & Heart, First Responders anthology and burn up the pages as you enjoy the heat!!

I read Medic by D Lilac. This book was swoony and steamy my perfect blend of delicious. The H is growly and set in his ways but he is no match for the h's charms.

Army Medic Tank Savage returns home and can't sit still. His life has been dedicated to helping others so he joins the fire department as a medic. Marley, a local teacher with big dreams, is someone that could definitely shake up his boredom, but he isn't sure he's a forever kind of guy. Marley takes him by surprise and makes him want more.

My kryptonite is a big burly soldier who knows what he wants. I love a curvy h that stands on her own two feet and stands up for herself. There are lots of good side characters and love Tanks niece, Peach. So cute.

Age Gap (15 years)
Plus size heroine
Small town
Praise kink (lite)

I was given an Arc of this story for my honest review.

I did only receive Medic as an Arc. But this story doesn’t disappoint. The story has age gap and some self growth. It is a short story. It does take place in Dripping Springs! I hope we get more of Marley and Tank in other stories! I don’t want to give anything away!

Plot: 10/10
Trope: Age gap
Spicy: 6/10

Holy Toledo! Hot Cop Test by Hilary Grossman is super HOT! First of all this book is part of a steamy first responder charity anthology called Heroes with Heat and Heart Volume 2. It will be published on June 28th. Here is what the author told me about the efforts of her and the other authors:

“The team and I are desperately trying to make the USA Today list so we can bring more visibility to the difficulties facing wildland firefighters. Every penny this $0.99 anthology earns will go directly to the Grassroots Wildland Firefighters Organization. The other authors and I are not making a cent.”

I don’t know about you but that caught my interest right away. I went directly to the pre-order link and ordered my anthology. What a better way to help out this organization. If you don’t read any of the books it will at least put your money to a good cause. Order a few of them for friends while you’re at it. The authors and I are hoping you will read them and you might find a new favorite author!

Here is the link to order: https://www.amazon.com/Heroes-Heat-He...

You may have to copy this link into your browser. It is easy to search at Amazon with: “Heroes With Heat And Heart”.

Hot Cop Test was such a fun book to read. Oh my! It is the prequel to Cop An Attitude. I enjoyed that book also and there is another installment called Cop A Plea in July! I mean who doesn’t like hunky gorgeous men especially men in uniform? They are always perfect to throw in between the more serious books. They always brighten my world for a while after finishing my time with them.
Hilary Grossman writes fun books that deal with serious subjects. Her characters are easy to relate to and bring such a lighthearted joy to my life. I always look forward to her next book.

One this Anthology is for a good cause. Two the authors who are contributing are amazing. And, if the stories are anything like D.M. Davis Wildflower - we are in for an amazing treat!

Kindle Unlimited: Yes
Stand-alone: No
Author: D.M. Davis, Wildflower (Wild Duet)
Rating: 5/5 ⭐️
Spiciness Rating: 3/5 🌶
POV: First Person Dual Perspective
Main Couple: Reid and Daphne
Trope(s): Protector, Friends To Lovers

Wildflower is the first book in the Wild Duet. Dana is participating in the Charity Romance Anthology Heroes With Heat and Heart Volume 2. Book does end in a cliffy. If you have read Dana’s books you know she brings some angst. This book, however, is low angst, with a H to drool and swoon over and the h couldn’t be sweeter if she tried. OhmyholygrandmaJean, this story had me. I read it in one sitting and smiled, giggled, and swooned the entire time! This book made my weekend! Reid and Daphne are going to be couple goals I can just tell. I know I said this is a low angst read, but it does end with a heart pounding cliffy.

Daisy owns Blooming Flower Shoppe and Reid visits every Tuesday buying her flower creations. Daisy has been crushing on him since day one. Guess what, he’s doing the same. Thanks to his mom trying to play matchmaker- Daisy is on his radar, only she isn’t biting.

When Reid comes to her rescue it changes everything. Reid is a legacy fireman so saving people is in his soul. Reid is playing the long game so he gives Daphne the space and incentive to settle into the idea of them.

I just finished Wildflower, Wild Duet Book 1 by DM Davis and wow! Loved it! Reid and Daisy are so sweet together after a year of dancing around their attraction. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down! My only complaint is that I have to wait to find out what happens after the cliffhanger of cliffhangers… with this story alone the price of the anthology is a bargain! Looking forward to reading the other stories included.

Wildflower by D.M. Davis

What an amazing story! I am ready for the continuation and to find out what happens next! Reid is a fireman and Daisy owns a flower shop. Reid has gone into her shop for flowers, but for whom, for the last year. Right from the beginning, you can feel a connection between the two. It seems as they continue hang out, they definitely enjoy each others company. Just when their relationship may be getting deeper, something unexpected happens. But what? Wait til you see! I just wanted to scream and cry. That ending was like what did I just read and I need the next book asap lol 😂. Definitely a page turner!

Wildflower by D.M. Davis (part of the Heroes with Heart and Heat Anthology)
Overall Score ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level 🔥🔥🔥

Gahhh!!!! I was sucked in from page 2. You can't help but crave Reid. He's a hot alpha male allllll the way, who just so happens to he a fireman as well. He is ridiculously protective of Daisy, his Wildflower, and it's everything a girl could ask for. This is book 1 of a duet and does end with a cliffhanger. BUT the 2nd book is coming out soon. Grab your copy today!

Alaska Flame by Lolo Paige
Angela joined the smoke jumpers and while training caught up with Gunnar, one of the instructors. They had met briefly years before.
I loved this. It was dramatic and intense but also really romantic and a little steamy.
I loved Angela as she was a go getter who knew what she wanted and worked to get it which worked for Gunnar.
Their chemistry was simplistic and strong. Which only added to the story. This war a great story and only makes me want to read Heroes with Heart more now. Great book!
This was an ARC and this is my honest review.

I read this in one sitting, no stopping for anything( including my boyfriend and dog...the boyfriend had to walk the furball). It caught me withing the first few pages and didn't let up. The characters are wonderful and easily relatable so you can put yourself in their shoes which makes it way to easy to get lost in the story! I have read a few books by D. Lilac and honestly I would recommend her to just about everyone I know who reads romance!

I read Medic by D. Lilac
A short steamy older man/younger woman romance. Tank is home after years of serving his country, now about to start his new journey as an EMT. Picking up his niece from preschool is where he meets and is attracted to her young teacher Marley. Love it, especially the as it was put the grand gesture and the epilogue.

Hot Cop Test was a phenomenal read and a great warm up to Cop a Plea.
When Randi is a teenager she is involved in a shooting at a local mall where she manages to escape unhurt, her boyfriend at the time abandons her, however, she meets a handsome rookie cop, Alex, whose face is one she will never forget. She vows to leave New York and never come back, until she has to. The rookie cop gave her some pretty solid relationship advice in which she called “The Hot Cop Test”.

Told in dual POV’s from Alex and Randi, both equally afraid of getting hurt again, will Alex pass his own test?

I’m definitely looking forward to reading the whole anthology.
