4 Stars for All Fired Up by Vivian Arend and Elle Kennedy





All Fired Up (DreamMakers #1)

By: Vivian Arend & Elle Kennedy

Welcome to the DreamMakers trilogy. A new collaboration from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Vivian Arend and Elle Kennedy, author of the bestselling Out of Uniform and Killer Instincts series.

What are three ex-military best friends supposed to do when they’re back on US soil permanently? Parker Wilson, Jack Hunter and Dean Colter considered establishing the typical security company, but a glut on the market forced a change of plans.

After listening to a friend bemoan not knowing what to do for his girlfriend’s birthday, they realized their set of job skills left them uniquely positioned to assist the confused male masses. Any idiot can plan a perfect date if he knows his woman well enough. And anyone with recon skills can fill in the missing gaps.


  DREAMMAKERS: HELPING YOU WIN THE BATTLE FOR HER HEART

Got an event coming up with that special someone? Looking to make a first impression guaranteed to move you to the top of her dating list? Or…god forbid…did you forget her birthday and need to make up some serious cred? Let us help you.

A fun thrill ride of hot sex and sweet emotion. Vivian Arend and Elle Kennedy held me spellbound with the escapades of these three exciting alpha males who know their way around a woman’s body—and her heart. I can’t wait to read more! ~ Jaci Burton, New York Times Bestselling Author


Blurb:

He’s ready to lead the way

Parker Wilson never thought he’d go from battle-hardened soldier to romance expert, but after his stint in the Rangers, that’s exactly what happened. As the owner of DreamMakers Inc., he helps other men win in the love department, using every resource available to plan the perfect date. When a routine recon turns into an unexpected night of passion, Parker’s mission becomes more personal—and he won’t give up until Lynn Davidson is all his.

She’s more than willing to follow

Lynn is a goner from the moment she lays eyes on the delectable Parker. She’s just ditched her boring almost-boyfriend and is tired of sticking to the straight and narrow. It’s time to walk on the wild side, and what better way than in the arms of the most irresistible man she’s ever met? But when their red-hot affair is threatened, it’ll take a team effort to make their dreams come true.

What I thought about All Fired Up



A solid four stars. Sometimes you just want something a little bit lighter, where characters act like adults and conflicts are resolved quickly. All Fired Up was that for me, and I really enjoyed this. 

There's a charming and fresh premise here with three buddies from the military getting together to run a date-planning service for men using their exceptional military skills to plan the perfect date for their clients.  And they know how to use their reconnaissance skills well.  All Fired Up focused on Parker, but I felt like I got a good look at Dean and Jack, too. These guys working together to do what they do just worked for me in a more light-hearted way that kept me reading.

When they get a contract that brings them to stalking, oops I mean learning about Lynn to craft a perfect date for her at the request of Phil, her creepy boyfriend, Parker falls  hard and fast for Lynn.  

I really liked these two together. There was just the right amount of drama to keep things interesting and lots of hot romance.  When I got to the end, I wanted the next story in this series, and that's why I'm giving this a four-star rating.

 
About the Authors:

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of both contemporary and paranormal stories, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well entertained.
