    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.

    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.

    A delightful mix of love, drama and humour

    How does one define this book? Romance? Definitely, but it’s so much more. There is a good helping of humour (just take the odd friendship between Ella and Megan), both in the dialogue and resulting events. The romance built up in spite of the main characters, and the attraction between two strong people had one rooting for them. There is suspense and some drama, but mostly it was a book about coming to terms with the past, reconciliation and a caring community looking after its own. The book is well written and the author carries the reader from one chapter to the next in anticipation and expectation of what is going to happen next. I loved both Mack and Ella and that despite their inner vows, they found themselves thawing. It was a delight to meet up with characters from previous books in the series, particularly the twins. But most of all I was glad to see the resolution of the past. Although this book is part of a series and characters from previous books appear in this one too, it is nevertheless a standalone and can be read as such. The novel comes to a delightful ending with an epilogue that warms the heart. I received a copy of this book from NetGallery and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Set the Night on Fire

    ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars Set the Night on Fire: A Cottonbloom Novel by Laura Trentham is my first book by this author and was given by St. Martin Press and NetGalley. While this is a standalone it is part of a series and I will be getting the other books in this series! Love the Abbott brothers! Mack Abbott and his three brothers are partners in the family garage and restoration business that is until his brother Ford sells his quarter share to wealthy divorcée, Ella Boudreaux who knows how to invest wisely, make money and build an empire. When she steps foot into the garage it takes her to a time and place with happy memories of working on cars with her brother especially when she sees the 240Z that Mack is in the process of restoring. She knows she can help make this business into a major success but she will have to butt heads with Mack every step of the way and try to keep the off the wall attraction between them to a minimum. Can these two learn to be a team, make the garage a major success and find what has been missing in both their lives...a HEA together or will Mack keep pushing Ella to throw in the towel, give up and move on??

    I love the Abbott brothers.

    I really love the Abbott brothers. I hope Ford gets his story too. After Ford sold his part of the garage to Ella, Mack keeps trying to buy it back from her. He wants only the Abbott family to be in control of the garage. Ella does have some really good ideas, but Mack is stubborn and doesn't like change. Sometimes he thinks he is too much like his father in that respect. As he and Ella work together and become closer, he realizes that he needs to make some changes in order to move on. He really needs to reconcile with his mom and his brother. Ella seems to have it all, but she really doesn't. She didn't have a good life growing up and she worked hard to get where she is. The best thing she ever did for herself was divorce her abusive husband. She will never let any man dominate her again. Mack seems like he would be that way, but he also has a softer side. Will they be able to come to an agreement about the garage and move on with their lives?
