Well, this is an unexpected twist. Jenna Brooks is all set to spend the weekend wallowing in misery, repairing the cracks in the façade she’s maintained for twelve years. Instead she’s…tied to a chair. Kidnapped by her own twin brother and her so-called best friend.
It’s for her own good, they say. She’ll thank them later, they say. But when they reveal her partner in captivity, she shores up her emotional barriers. It’s Garreth Halt. The one man for whom she let her guard down. What a fool she was.
For one electrifying moment, Garreth had Jenna naked in his arms, on the edge of losing her legendary control. Could have kept her there forever, too, if he hadn’t felt honor-bound to tell her the truth. Before she’d heard the whole truth, though, she’d retreated behind the fortress around her heart.
Now they’re knee to knee, with no escape. While he’s irritated he let his alleged best friend get the drop on him, a small part of him is thrilled. With one final chance to show her his love is real, Garreth methodically, wickedly, sets out to dismantle her defenses.
One dirty word at a time.
Hidden Fire picks up right where Winter Fire: A Red Hot Winter Story ends. Jenna’s twin brother Jackson has broken a pact they made 12 years ago to not become involved with each other friends by sleeping with, and finally admitting that he is in love with Jenna’s best friend Rachel. Jenna is shocked to find out that Jackson has broken the pact that was set in place when Jenna and Jackson were the target of rumors in high school that they slept together. These rumors are started by a friend of Jenna’s who is interested in Jackson. Because of the trouble that came with the rumors and the suffering Jenna went through, she completely hides her emotions to the outside world and feels the need to control everything. But once Jackson’s secret is out, Jenna realizes that now is the time to finally admit her feelings for Garreth Halt, Jackson’s roommate and best friend.
Garreth has been in love with Jenna since the first time he met her. When Jenna shows up at his hotel room and finally agrees to be him he can not believe he finally going to get Jenna. Only his happiness is short lived. Garreth must tell Jenna that he not only slept with her best friend Rachel, but had a threesome with Rachel and her brother Jackson. Once Garreth has Jenna in his arms he can not hide the truth any longer and admits to Jenna about sleeping with Rachel. Jenna runs from Garreth feeling betrayed once again by someone she loves.
Both Jenna and Garreth are “kidnapped” and forced to talk out their difference. I loved reading Garreth with all his dirty words to Jenna trying to break down her wall and let him in. He knew he had to push her beyond her breaking point and when he does things go from HOT to scorching ! Garreth and Jenna have great chemistry and their story is so wonderfully written. Their story is like reading a story about friends. They love each, they can not stand what the other is doing and then the realization that if they just work together and be honest they can make it through anything. The inter struggle for Jenna is hard and there were times I felt bad for her and just wanted to hug her and tell her everything would be alright. To be tormented so badly at young age is horrible. I loved watching her come out of her shell and know it was alright for her to be who she wanted to be.
This is wonderfully HOT story about two people over coming a lot obstacles. This is another great story by Jess Dee. Oh, and I love the water gun….you will see.
