ARC book review: All Fired Up (DreamMakers #1) by Vivian Arend , Elle Kennedy
Ebook provided by publisher
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.
In a unlikely premise we have 3 bad ass ex military guys running a dating help business. They help clueless guys set up awesome dates for their girlfriends or wives. Kind of a interesting idea really. The guys get a new customer who is a real scumbag. He knows nothing about his girlfriend but wants them to help him set up awesome date so he can propose. They really don't want to help him but go ahead with it and start doing a little surveillance of the girlfriend Lynn since they get no info that's helpful about her from the boyfriend. Parker makes contact with her at a yoga class and likes her. Little later Lynn who works at the same place as her boyfriend catches him cheating on her and she decides she is done with him. Lynn and her friends go out to a club and Parker and Dean ( one of the other partners in the business) are there still doing surveillance on her when they find out she's broken up with the boyfriend. This opens the door for Parker and even though he feels funny about it he walks on through that door. This was a overall interesting read. I liked the idea of the guys helping other guys with date the kicker is that they are ex military alpha's. There is actually a menage in this story which was a surprise to me but done well and there is even some suspense when something happens to Lynn and Parker has to find her and rescue her. The secondary characters were all interesting and i am excited to see what comes from those characters in the next couple of books in the series. Definitely look forward to revisiting this series.
