    Loved it

    I love this little town of Cottonbloom and this fantastic book reminded me exactly why. Fun and maybe slightly crazy characters, strong family bonds, and exciting passionate romances are just a few of the reasons. In this book we meet Ella Boudreaux. The woman who bout a portion of the Abbott's garage. She faces off with Mack Abbott when she decides to move to Cottonbloom for a fresh start after an ugly divorce. He doesn't want her anywhere near his garage and he definitely doesn't want her involved in his business. She may not know a lot about repairing cars but she knows business if she can only get Mack to listen to her ideas. The last thing Mack wants is to actually like Ella but her determination and long sexy legs make her hard to resist. Don't miss this one as things heat up in the garage. I highly recommend this one.

    A sweet, funny romance!

    Set the Night on Fire by Laura Trentham is Book 6 of 6 in the Cottonbloom series. The tagline says “Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home--and falling head over heels. . .” This book is the first time I have visited Cottonbloom, and it stands alone just fine. But after finishing I want to go back to the first 5 books and learn the beginning of everyone else’s story, too. Set the Night on Fire is Ella and Mack’s story. Ella comes back to Cottonbloom to heal and start over. Mack is desperate to retain control of the family business. They each feel they have a lot to prove to family, friends, and foes - that they can do what they set out to do and that they haven’t made any mistakes that can’t be fixed. Ella and Mack are both determined and strong-willed, to put it mildly, and at cross-purposes from the beginning. But the attraction between them is undeniable. And what makes this such a delightful love story is the expert way author Laura Trentham mixes heat and fun. The heat is definitely there. Even though they are constantly clashing and wary of one another, they are also drawn seemingly beyond their control to each other. And just when you think you might explode from the heat something sweet or funny happens. Who could resist Ella’s description of Mack’s unexpectedly lovely, complicated eyes, with the swirl of blues and greens and browns. But who doesn’t smile when those eyes draw her like a bug to a zapper. Who wouldn’t laugh out loud when his glance toward her mouth was like handing her a roadmap with a giant X on Kissytown, and her imagination goes on a pleasurable jaunt down Inappropriateness Lane. And even the heat – you feel it slowly build as Mack checks out Ella’s body in the doorway of his office – but you smile again when he does a check, double check, and checkity-check. The book is full of these moments. As I said, it’s delightful. Full of characters you can’t help but root for, with a solid plotline and some suspense and surprises. I received a copy of Set the Night on Fire from the publisher via NetGalley. I thoroughly enjoyed it and do not hesitate to recommend it.

    What a great read!

    I just love books where characters are so much more than they appear, and Set the Night On Fire delivers an enemies to lovers romance that proves that perception isn’t always reality, especially when the heart gets involved. There is so much truth that you shouldn’t judge someone until you get to know them, and this is just the case for both Ella and Mack. Ella has recently arrived in Cottonbloom and does nothing to dispel the rumors that she is living off the settlement from her divorce, even though that is far from the truth. She’s finally in a good place and has put the wreck of her marriage behind her, grown stronger from the scars it caused, and has learned to stand up for herself. Mack runs the Abbott Brothers Garage with his brothers and is seen as gruff and a bit rough around the edges. He’s felt the pressure of keeping the garage afloat since his father passed and has little time to enjoy life, especially when he feels the weight of his family’s world on his shoulders. When Ella buys a 25% stake in his family’s business Mack can’t wait to buy her out and get her out of his life –and watching these two square up against each other was a lot of fun, especially when it’s clear they are also fighting a very strong attraction to one another as well. One thing I really loved about both Ella and Mack was their giving, caring, and protective nature. They both showed that it didn’t matter who you were or how well they might have known you, they both would go out of their way to help. From the fundraiser that Ella plans to Mack’s protective nature when Ella’s ex shows up, these two were just genuinely nice people. This is the first I’ve read in this series and I have fallen in love with the quirky town of Cottonbloom. From the dual nature of the town to the colorful residents, this town won me over just as much as Ella and Mack did. There is a story behind everyone and everything in town and I can’t wait to read more in this series. I really enjoyed the author’s writing style – the book was easy to read and the plot flowed smoothly. There was great dialogue between the characters and there was a wonderful interplay between the characters, especially when it came to some of the more emotionally charged scenes. Even though this is part of a series this can be read as a standalone – one that I would highly recommend. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the publisher from NetGalley.

    Contemporary Romance

    Set the Night on Fire by Laura Trentham Cottonbloom #6 Ella Boudreaux and Mack Abbott should have nothing in common…I mean…she is wealthy, high society and into designer clothes while he is all about the cars, grease and keeping the family garage going. Their first meeting didn’t go well and the next one, when she comes to the garage, does either. He is a grouch and she is on the defensive. Little do they know that they have more in common and more to offer to one another than either might realize. Ella is a woman with a heart of gold. She ran into the wrong man to be her husband way too early in her life. The fact that she survived the marriage, managed to get away and then thrive afterward is amazing. Her back story, when it comes out, is an insight into even more of what makes her tick. Her ability to empathize and be there for others and see things through and…well…I found her an amazing woman and one I wouldn’t mind being like! Mack is a man who is complex. He is one of four brothers with a backstory that also is fraught with secrets and made him who he is. When he finally realizes a few home truths it is a bit of a wakeup call…the fact that Ella may have helped him see a way through the issues that are blocking him is a testament to her but also the fact that he is willing to make some changes is a testament to him. The chemistry, rapport and growing relationship between Ella and Mack was a joy to read. I have no idea who will star in book seven but can’t wait to find out! Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
