Romance on the Rig by Kara Liane is a story in Risking Everything: A Steamy Anthology of First Responders. Once I started reading this story in the anthology, I couldn’t stop.

Murf has not had luck in the love department but he thinks he’s met his one. Unfortunately, there is a misunderstanding between Murf and Lana that prevents them from being together. Will Murf be able to make it right so they can be together?

This author is new to me but It was such a good story to read, I may have to read more! There are many other great stories in this book i highly recommended giving it a try!

This collection of stories about romance with first responders starts off with an EMT that is quick to jump to conclusions in “Romance on the Rig” by Kara Liane. Murf falls for Lana at first sighting, but he makes some assumptions based on observations. Rather than asking questions to verify anything, he continues acting on false assumptions and hating his own attraction to someone that he considers to be “out of bounds” for him. When they do get together, they’re fun and interesting in how they date. The author does a wonderful job of giving a lot of information that makes the characters real without bogging down the story. Murf continues to assume the worst and almost loses the girl until he learns to truly open up. This is a great story and touches some real issues of how hard it is to communicate sometimes.

“IN UNITY, THERE IS STRENGTH”

RISKING EVERYTHING is an anthology of stories featuring first responders. Some are super sexy and some are super sweet. There are stories filled with angst, romance and friendship.

Each story can be read as a stand-alone, and some have threads that come from a series that I will be adding to my “want to read” list.

Reconstructed Heart by K.L. Montgomery was one of my favorites. Often times in life, things happen that have a domino effect and we don’t know why until we can look back. That is what this story is about and it was heartbreaking and fantastic all at the same time.

5 stars

5-Stars

Risking Everything was an amazing steamy and romantic collection of stories. The stories were well written and entertaining with excellently developed characters. I had a hard time picking which one was my favorite. I did find it easier to relate to female lead character Penelope Justice in “Always Kind Of Love” by author Amanda Seigrest. This story was a second chance Romance featuring a hunky Fireman name Ethan. It was a fun read. I really enjoyed all of the stories present in this collection and I highly recommend it. It is definitely something a varied group of romance readers would enjoy.

This anthology features ten stories by ten authors who bring us stories revolving around the love lives of first responders. Each story features a couple that deals with the drama of everyday life on top of the requirements of their jobs. Each story was well written, and I found myself falling in love with the characters throughout the book. Two of my favorite stories were Reconstructed Heart by K.L. Montgomery and Romance on the Rig by Kaira Lane.

Reconstructed Heart tells the story of Trey Prince, a member of the Collision Reconstruction Unit, called to scene of an accident where he finds himself personally invested in figuring out what happens. Jenna Labato is an officer that responds to the initial scene and tries to help Trey heal as he deals with the aftermath of the accident. Jenna is a strong character that balances Trey as he is falling apart. This story shows the human side of officers that deal with horrific situations on a daily basis. I found myself fully invested in their story and rooting for them.

Romance on the Rig focuses on Lana Royce and Sean “Murf” Murphy. Lana lives with her sister and helps take care of her niece and nephew. Murf is an EMT that has been burned in the past when it comes to his love life. From the beginning, there are misconceived notions and misunderstandings between Lana and Murf that may derail this relationship before it ever starts. Lana is so giving to those around here and Murf wants to be the guy to give her everything she needs, if he could just get out of his own way.

I enjoyed reading each of the stories in this anthology and will be looking forward to reading future books from each of the authors.

One hot steaming hero coming up. In this Anthology!

My review is on
Walk The Line
By Harlow Layne

Gage Walker is one of the men in blue. He is a twin and very close to his family. One night on a call, he finds himself down a cliff helping to keep Claire Blake alert and talking. While the responders cut her out of her car. He has no clue what it is about this woman, but he intends to find out. Read this story to find out if they have a HEA.

Harlow Layne is a new author for me. But after reading this fast page turning story. She has become amongst my favorites. Her story is steamy, hot and well written. You will find romance as well as suspense. My two favorite components in in most romances I love to read. Gage and Claire are just right for this book as well. I will be reading more from Harlow Layne!

Risking Everything: A Steamy Anthology of First Responders is a charity anthology, with all proceeds going to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. So, not only do you get ten superb stories from ten talented authors when you purchase Risking Everything, but you will also be helping out a very worthy charity in the process.
All the stories focus on the theme of ‘first responders’ from Firefighters, to Police Officers, EMT’s to Collision Investigators, and dedicated Emergency Dispatcher- are just a few of the many first responders who play a part in this fantastic book.
We get to see these everyday heroes as ‘real people’ with real issues and emotions. We get to look behind their professional mask, to the person behind the ‘job’. I really thought the authors did a great job of showing their characters vulnerabilities, quirks, and flaws. It made them all quite ‘real’, and entirely believable. It also made for some emotive reading which tugged at my heartstrings.
There is s define spicy element to the anthology too, which will keep you warm while you are reading. So, what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a copy and dive in. I’m sure you won’t regret it.

Thank you to all the contributing authors!

Risking Everything: A Steamy Anthology of First Responders. This was an anthology with ten amazing stories written by some of my favorite authors and also some that I haven’t read before. One of my absolute favorite authors, KL. Montgomery’s Reconstructed Heart was a great read. Trey is called to the scene of an accident and is met with some heart wrenching news. This story had me ugly crying at times but then mended my heart right back up. Ms. Montgomery has a way of tearing our hearts out and fixing them just as easily. This is definitely a must read!!

I knew I had to pick this anthology up as soon as it went up for preorder. I mainly got this for KL Montgomery as she is an automatic one click author for me, no matter what its about!
This review focuses on Reconstructed Heart by KL Montgomery

Reconstructed Heart broke my heart from the beginning and took me on a journey inside the minds of police officers and the emotional turmoil they feel on a daily basis and how hard that is to bring into a relationship. Jenna and Trey sparked from the get go but it sure took some time to get from benefits and comfort to showing the feelings for real. Like all of this authors stories, I was invested from start to finish. I loved these characters as they were different in a way from some of her previous characters in her books.

I will be reading the rest of these stories as i love first responder stories.
