    Loved it

    Loved this one! Tate is just so yummy and the way he teases Wren just made me laugh. All outward appearances would point to Wren hating Tate but there is a thin line between love and hate. When Tate decides enough is enough and decides to really pursue Wren she is definitely pushed over the line. All his cute names for her drives her crazy but Dove seems to do something funny to her heart. Will she continue to resist him or will she finally give in to what her heart really wants? You definitely want to read this one and find out. I highly recommend it.

    Scorching, sexy, fun!

    I don’t very often give 5 stars. If I do, it’s because I feel the book is something special. I think Torch just had something different, special, good. If you have not read the previous two books in the series, you don’t have too, they are all stand alones. However, I highly recommend reading them. Then go and grab yourself a copy of this book. Briefly, Wren and Tate have a tenuous relationship. He loves to tease and flirt with her, make suggestive comments and drive her crazy. Wren gives as good as she gets and Tate does not get an inch with her. Wren’s two best friends are happily in love with Wren’s two older brothers. Her younger brother is in love. She is the only single on in the group…besides Tate. After a chance meeting at the local bar one night, Wren finds it hard to fight her attraction to Tate. So, here’s the thing. Wren is great. She is sassy, insecure, fun and she is one of the most realistic female characters I’ve read in a long time. She’s not perfect and she doesn’t try to be. Tate is almost too good to be true, but that’s okay, a book boyfriend is supposed to be near perfect. If you have read my reviews of the previous books in the series, you would have read my mention of this pesky arsonist who has terrible timing. Well, his (or her) timing in this book was impeccably perfect. That’s all I’m going to give you on that, because I refuse to spoil. Suffice it to say, the arsonist is still on the loose, but I am ninety percent positive I have figured out who it is. You hear me, Karen Erickson! :) Torch is my favorite of the the Wildwood series book. I love Tate and Wren. The story line is great and the writing is fantastic and real. I highly recommend Torch! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Scorching chemistry

    Ah Wren, she will steal your heart as she struggles to find her place in a world dominated by overbearing men that just want to protect her. She’s always felt suffocated by her father and brothers so it shocks her when Tate appears at the firehouse and she is attracted to him. He is the last thing she wants in her life. Tate is blown away by Wren, her confidence and sass get him every time so he just has to push her buttons to rile her up. The problem, she sees him as a player, can he convince her that he wants something more? When Wren’s world is truly shaken, Tate is there without any judgement to help her pick up the pieces. Will she finally see the amazing man standing in front of her? The banter between Tate and Wren is fabulous as their chemistry just rolls off the page which drove me crazy as I devoured every page.

    I adore these two together.

    Karen Erickson outdid herself with Torch. The title the characters and the whodunit are great assets to this saucy series. Wren puts on a brave face but is really a lost soul searching for her own place. She yearns for a chance to find her happiness, even if it takes her away from the people and places she loves. Tate, is everything she wants but is scared to take a chance on. The flashy personality, his risky career and the turbulent attraction that she craves to let loose. An impressionable home life has left both Tate and Wren with feelings of inadequacy and fear of the unknown. Can they overcome the pain of their pasts, in order to find a future together? The chemistry was combustible between Tate and Wren. It was so obvious that they had a special connection. What I loved most is that despite the animosity Wren showed, Tate was there whenever she needed someone to vent to or just to look after her. I adore these two together.

    3.5 stars-fast paced, sexy read

    3.5 stars-- TORCH is the third installment in Karen Erickson’s contemporary adult WILDWOOD romantic suspense series focusing on the town of Wildwood, California but especially the Gallagher family of brothers, and their sister Wren. This is fire chief Tate Warren, and bookkeeper Wren Gallagher’s story line. TORCH can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but for cohesion and backstory I recommend reading the series in order as there is a continuing plot throughout the series-an arsonist has set his/her sights on Wildwood, California and Wren is the next intended victim. Told from dual third person perspectives (Wren and Tate) TORCH focuses on the building relationship-an enemies to lovers romance- between Wren Gallagher and Tate Warren. Tate wants a relationship with Wren but for some reason Wren continues to treat Tate with vindictiveness and hatred whenever they are together. When Wren’s house is targeted and destroyed by Wildwood’s arsonist Tate offers up his place, if only temporarily in Wren’s mind. What ensues is the jump from enemies to friends to lovers that may be pushed to the side when Wren’s past comes looking for a second chance. The relationship between Wren and Tate is complicated. Wren’s acerbic personality and mean spirited verbal attacks against Tate are confusing when there has never been any reason for the vitriol and hatred that spews from her mouth. Tate’s attraction to Wren finds him verbally sparring with the feisty female that calls to his heart. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive. All of the Gallagher brothers, as well as their significant others, play secondary and supporting roles. Each brother is a member of the fire fighting squad, and in their attempts to protect their younger sister, things don’t go according to plan when secrets are revealed and Wren takes her anger out on the man with whom she is falling in love. Hopefully Lane’s story is next and the arsonist’s identity is finally revealed. TORCH continues to focus on search for the arsonist bent on destroying the town of Wildwood. There are a no suspects but the introduction of a new characters is always considered a possible party. TORCH is a fast paced, exciting and sexy read. The premise is entertaining with humor, romance, suspense and heartbreak; the characters are colorful and animated; the romance is a push and pull towards a happily ever after-for now. There has been no proclamation of love or forever-the story line felt a little incomplete although the hunt for the arsonist is still on the books-nothing has yet to be resolved.
