It’ll take more than a fire hose to cool down this attraction…

Fated, Book 1

Rain, rain, go away. That’s Jenna’s mantra as she suffers through yet another rain-soaked walk home from work. At least the tight butt of the guy walking in front of her offers some distraction. When he turns around and asks to share her umbrella, she realizes his front view is as smokin’ as the back. What better way to get up close and personal with the object of her ogling?

Brett noticed his hot little neighbor weeks ago, but until now hadn’t worked up the nerve—or found the opportunity—to approach her. Too many hours at the fire station has left him longing for something more out of life. Like the company of a sweet, sexy woman. Maybe, if he’s lucky, kindling a relationship.

Jenna surprises herself again when she offers to let him dry off in her apartment. One minute he’s toweling off his hair, the next their chemistry explodes in the hottest sex either of them have ever experienced. And suddenly they’re both wondering if he’s the match to her tinder, or if it’s too much, too fast…

Product Warnings: Contains smokin’ hot sex with a delicious stranger who turns out to be her neighbor who turns into the hottest firefighter she’s ever met. Grab a glass of ice water to cool these flames!

The Review:

In Karen Erickson’s Under My Umbrella Jenna and Brett’s chance meeting leads to pure, unadulterated sex. Is it just hot sex? Or will Fate guide this couple to love?

Under My Umbrella is a delicious mix of erotic sex and romance. The sexual chemistry between Jenna and Brett is scorching, and their sex scenes are delectably steamy. Brett is undeniably hot and I love how he loses control when he is with Jenna. Jenna is supremely self-confident so I will admit her moments of self doubt caught me off guard. Luckily her good friend Morgan talks some common sense into her when she needs it!

Under My Umbrella is an engaging story about love at first sight and believing that Fate plays a hand in our lives. I must confess I am usually not a fan of “insta-love” plots, but Karen Erickson pulls it off with Jenna and Brett. I am really looking forward to the other books in the Fated series.
