Tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she’s already lying beneath him in bed She fails Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charmsAs the summer heats up and tensions between Elle and Cole run high he begins to realize there’s he’s attracted to than Elle’s body and she discovers there’s a lot to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eyeUP IN FLAMES is a New Adult Romance intended for mature readers due to steamy content and saucy languag The most exciting thing was smoke jumping and even that didn't satisfy because the action of it didn't happen until the end Again this was one of those reads where the characterization of the heroine ruined the whole dang experience for me and the hero just wasn't yummy or charismatic enough to camouflage it Elle was a weak judgmental and selfish neophyte who never redeemed herself and certainly made me wonder why the hero and the other guy who btw was a good guy were SOoo smitten with herThe dialogue tried to be uniue and witty but it struggled half the time; yet the storyline that followed a familiar and simple format was a uick and slightly okay read ironically

Up In FlamesS as a smokejumper Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots The only thing he avoids than that is settling down with one woman especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to saveElle Montgomery’s life is going one way And Cole Carson’s is going the opposite There’s no reason their paths should ever intersect even in a small town in central Washington But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole After an awkward run in at the local swimming hole Elle I wanted to like this book so much As a matter of fact when I learned about it it sounded so good I went around telling people This is gonna be SO goodWell it wasn't It was just another piece of smut which seems to have infiltrated the new adult genre The story had potential good girl with a wild streak trying to please everyone and forgetting herself Unfortunately the heroine is a cheater the hero has no personality there's insta love and the story was basically about her losing her virginity to the other guy while still being in a relationship with her boyfriendNobody likes a cheating heroine Even worse Elle is a cheater that makes excuses for herself The way she treated Logan was so low pretending everything is fine while going behind his backActually I don't know what to say about her She was judgmental hypocritical and whiny I wouldn't want her as my friendShe complains about her life all the time but then you learn she never even told anyone what she did want and you just can't feel sorry for herI liked Logan Yeah he was a bitprim? But I'm confident that if she told him how she felt exactly he would have done things differently Instead she lets him live his illusion that they're good the way they are It's no wonder that he is so ignorant to her unhappiness The way she spoke about him safe comfortable and a tad boring was probably what bothered me the most Why are you with him if you feel this way? It's cruel WHY? I didn't care about Cole That's all I have to say about himThis was the lamest love triangle I have ever read I just didn't care about the whole thingThere was no depth to anything no depth to the story no depth to the characters I can't even say if I liked the way it was written because I just didn't care I skimmed the sex scenesIt may be that this just wasn't my kind of story and I think I may be in the minority again I'm just so disappointed because I had really high expectations It's a fairly short read so give it a chance and decide for yourself
