This is our first introduction to Anne Ashburn. She has been a firefighter for two years now at Stationhouse 499 in New Brunswick. And to Danny Maguire who is also a firefighter in the same stationhouse.
One of Anne and Danny’s fellow firefighter brothers and also Danny’s best friend and roommate, is getting married. It’s four days before the wedding and all of the pre-wedding chaos has begun.
“From the moment she’d walked into the open bay of the 499 two years ago, she had gotten his attention. Even as a newbie fresh out of the academy, she had had a confidence and competence that had been intimidating.”
Danny might have a reputation for being a ladies man. But that all changed when he met Anne. He’s kept his feelings hidden up until now but what he feels for her is getting hard to keep contained. He can feel that she is drawn to him as well but she won’t give in to it.
Anne knows of Danny’s reputation but she is determined not to be his next one and done. Only, this chemistry that is sizzling between them is getting harder to ignore.
They are thrown together during all of the wedding festivities and the pull between them does nothing but get stronger. Only she has to work with this man, face him every day. Can she give in to this attraction and then face him at work like nothing is changed? Her head says stay away but her body and her heart are saying something else.
I loved this introduction to these two. They already have me pulled in to them as a couple. I have a feeling I am going to love this series and can’t wait for the second prequel, The Reception, to see what happens next.
“He wanted to be more for her. He wanted to be everything for Anne.’
After reading only this first book, I'm eager to continue on. The banter between Anne and Danny swing from funny to heated and everything in between. Not to mention Moose and his soon to be bride....YIKES! What is going on in that mans brain? That woman is scary ....as in you know something bad is about to happen in a horror movie scary, yet you can't stop watching or in this case reading on.
With the wedding from Hell coming soon we have a lot to look forward to in the coming books. Will Moose go through with it? Will Anne and Danny hook up and still be able to work together? What about the bride? I can't even go there. So with this said, I will be placing my preorder for Consumed along with waiting to get the second book in this series tomorrow. This is one of those rare authors that just doesn't seem to have a bad book in her.
Funny, sexy with a great cast of characters. I can't get enough.
I was already anxious for the release of Consumed BEFORE I read Part 1 of this prequel. Now?? I'm beyond DESPERATE for it. Danny and Anne are a slow burning firefighter romance in the making and I NEED MORE NOW!! I'm completely addicted to them already. I want their story. I want their secrets. I want JR Ward's signature storytelling to envelop me in the deliciousness that's sure to come.
The chemistry between Danny and Anne is palpable, their reluctant attraction is on fire. This was the tiniest little taste of what's to come but it packed such a punch! The dynamic between these firefighters oozed sexual tension and complicated emotions straight out of the gate and I WANT MORE. JR Ward hit the mark with this prequel because I am already CONSUMED.

REVIEW: 4.5 stars-THE WEDDING FROM HELL Part 1: The Rehearsal Dinner is the introductory novella in JR Ward’s contemporary, adult FIREFIGHTERS series focusing on the men and women who work and breathe at the 499 firehouse in New Brunswick, Massachusetts. This is fire fighters Anne Ashburn, and Danny Maguire’s story line.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Anne and Danny) THE WEDDING FROM HELL, Part 1: The Rehearsal Dinner reveals the friendships and camaraderie between the member of the 499, as well as the building sexual tension between fire fighters Anne Ashburn, and Danny Maguire. With the impending wedding of fellow fighter Robert ‘Moose’ Miller to his bridezilla Deandra Cox, the members of the 499 embark on a night of fun that spirals out of control when a very inebriated groom disappears, and Anne and Danny find themselves involved in a knife fight between a pimp, a prostitute and the man that she loves. As the palpable sexual tension continues to grow between Anne and Danny, Danny’s past pushes at something more.
THE WEDDING FROM HELL, Part 1: The Rehearsal Dinner is a very quick read; a short, revealing and intriguing novella that introduces the men and women of the 499. A strong start to what promises to be another fantastic series by the amazing JR Ward.
As always, I love her writing, want to be her when I grow up and dig on her character development and writing style. After reading quite a number of stinkers over the last several weeks, it’s been nice getting back to some real writing.
