  • Small town, friends to lovers

    I have loved both Jamison and Maddie since the first book in this series. He seemed so real. He has flaws and he makes mistakes. But, he learns from them. They help him become a better man. Her marriage ended horribly and she is very wary of ever loving again. She has feelings for Jamison but is trying to ignore them. Jamison and Maddie have been friends since they were children. One night is all it takes for them to realize that they both want so much more! This friends to lovers story is hot from the get go. I read it in one sitting and wished for more when I got to the end!

  • My favorite couple of the series

    Maddie and Jamison are hands down my favorite couple of this series. It’s been fun and interesting to see them start off as just supporting characters in their siblings’ stories to being the featured duo. Even though the books are all set within a relatively short time span, from book one to three, Maddie and Jamison have grown as individuals throughout that period. Their relatively low-angst relationship begins with a funny and sexy whiskey-infused skinny dipping session and immediately blossoms into these lifelong friends dating…but on the sly, as not to upstage their sibling’s upcoming wedding. Maddie is the one who’s more cautious about it, which I love, as often it’s the male lead who wants to keep it a secret. But for Jamison, that shift from friends only to lovers is something to celebrate, not hide, and he’s all in. But even easy-breezy relationships can hit a snag or two, but it’s nothing that these two people, who’ve loved each other for years, in a different context, can’t work out. Every conversation in this book feels real…like the reader is overhearing the couple next door, the sisters in the coffee shop or the co-workers who hang out when the day is done. Lili Valente excels in bring honesty and authenticity to character reactions and emotions in all her stories. Her books entertain and delight and she has become a one-click author for this very happy reader!

  • This series just gets hotter!

    Oh how I loved this story. Jamison and Maddie are a match made in heaven. They have been friends forever and they continue to grow in ways that becomes so much more. This series is just getting better and I loved the banter, the laughter, a little bit of angst, and so much romance all packed with a punch. I couldn't put this book down or get the story out of my mind. I loved these characters who seem like my own fictional family. You will love Jamison and Maddie and a whole lot more!!

  • So Hot

    Playing with Fire has everything I’ve come to expect from a Lili Valente book: a swoony hero, a fierce heroine, heartwarming romance, steamy love scenes, and lots of laugh-out-loud moments. I’ve been looking forward to Jamison’s story since he stole the show at the auction in book one. And it did not disappoint. Since he and Maddie have been lifelong friends, things between them moved pretty quickly. Like the rest of the series, their journey was a fun ride. It was such a joy to be back in Bliss River. And props to my girl Dawn for being a great friend and saying all the things I wanted to say, but couldn’t do through a book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun and hot. Great addition to this series!

    Playing with Fire is a fun, hot and sexy addition to Lili Valente’s Hometown Heat series. We met Maddie and Jamison in the first two books of this series, and finally they get a book of their own. Maddie and Jamison have known each other since they were children and have been friends for as long as they can remember. When they unexpectedly bump into each other on a weekend getaway, with the help of some shots of whiskey, Jamison and Maddie can’t deny the attraction they share which leads to a hot passionate night spent in each other’s arms. When the morning comes, they both admit they’d like to see more of each other. They both agree to keep their relationship a secret for the time being, but the more time they spend together, the deeper and stronger their love grows. But when the past rears its head, is Jamison and Maddie’s love strong enough to survive the unfortunate mistake that comes to light and surrender to the love they feel with one another? Playing with Fire is a perfectly written romance. It has just the right amount of sexy and steamy moments, a tiny bit of angst and lots of fun and entertaining moments. This is a beautifully written love story that made my heart swoon. I love Maddie and Jamison’s story. Playing with Fire is part of Lili Valente’s Hometown Heat series but can definitely be read as a stand-alone.
