Emma has been burned badly and she is not looking for that happy ever after either. She has many issues from that past relationship and is looking more for a friends with benefits relationship.
I loved how they meet, how that attraction just takes over and though they have both convinced themselves that this is just for fun, love finds its way into their hearts, long before they even realize it.
I give huge extra points for the glimpses into Josh and Payton's lives. I just love it when the story flows seamlessly involving characters from another book. After reading book one I found myself wanting more of them, needing to know how their relationship developed and where they went from here. It added so much to Jackson and Emma's story as well.
Emily writes a strong, true to life story. I found myself wrapped up in Emma's feelings about Jackson's job and the choices she made in the past. Jackson has some of his own hang ups and Emily does an exceptional job of writing them true to a mans perspective.
I loved this book so much, the only complaint is the end...I wanted it to keep on going like the never ending story. This reader hopes to see more of these characters in the next book and is anxiously waiting for it to come out. I highly recommend both of her books!
Jackson will soon return home from yet another deployment and part of him dreads it. He has been unable to forget the person that he cannot have, his brothers girl, Payton. She has been one of his strongest supporters since his deployment and not a day has gone by that he hasn't thought of her. To say going home will be a struggle is an understatement. Upon his return home, Jax meets Emma, a school teacher, who is just as strange as she is beautiful. When life throws them together a few more times, they strike up a friendship, that becomes more friends-with-benefits. Neither one has plans to settle down, or so they thought.
Emma has sworn off men. She has been burned more than she would care to admit. When she meets Jax, she feels a connection to him, but rather than truly explore it past the physical level, she buries her feelings, not wanting to let him in. Jax pushes her to slowly let those walls down, but will they ever completely fall or will she be left heartbroken and hurting once again? Protecting herself is all she knows how to do. I loved Emma's character, she is witty, smart mouthed, stubborn, thoughtful and funny rolled all into one crazy, messed up lady.
Robertson has the ability to draw the reader in from the first chapter and have you reading until you can't keep your eyes open any longer.Read more ›
Playing with Fire can be read as a standalone without the reader being completely lost but I would recommend reading in order if you want to know where these guys got their start, I will be going back and reading book one as soon as I have time.
Jackson is home from a tour overseas for the first time in 9 months. While he was gone he struggled with his attraction to his brothers girlfriend Payton. Once home he realizes the time away did no good, that he's now home and sharing a home with the woman he loves and the man she loves, his brother.
Emma is a bit hardened towards love. She's had her heart broken an while she doesn't want a relationship she decides there's nothing wrong with having fun.
Jax and Emma meet and it doesn't take long for the attraction between them to have them settling into a friends with benefits situation.
Jax figures it's a great way to forget about Payton, start moving on, what he doesn't expect is to start feeling something more than attraction towards Emma. And when he does she's not as receptive as he'd hoped.
Emma gives him a run for his money. She's dead set against getting her heart broken again, and with Jax's job it's bound to happen. When she realizes she wants more from him she fights it, even if he's on the same page emotionally she's just not ready to go there again.
And Jax, that woman he loves? Well he comes to an important realization thanks to Emma, one he didn't expect but makes this story so great.
Loved each and every character in this story, I adore a strong heroine and Emma was that. Though she's been through hell she worked hard to keep from being the victim again, sometimes maybe a bit too hard but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to protect her heart.
Playing with Fire may have been my first book from the author but it won't be my last.
