Firecracker: A contemporary romance

FIRECRACKER                                         KELLY JAMIESON

Arden Lennox’s charmed life may be in pieces, but she’d sooner get her hoohaw bleached than move back in with her parents. She’s no longer the prom-queen princess married to the football star. She’s a broke, penniless widow, and it’s time she stood on her own two feet.

An under-construction unit in a quaint Chicago brownstone is cheap (free), but it comes with an unexpected surprise. Tyler Ramirez, her brother’s gawky high school best friend, is now a smoking hot firefighter who spends most of his spare time in her unit hammering, drilling and screwing. Usually with his shirt off—a temptation she has no intention of indulging.

Tyler can’t believe his high school crush is living right across the hall, or how fast his fierce lust for her comes blazing back. She’s still gorgeous—a little sadder, a little quieter, but still with the amazing smile and sweet body that fueled his awkward teenage fantasies.

Despite her best intentions, Arden can’t resist grown-up Tyler but the sparks between them send her into full retreat. And by the time she realizes the heat between them could last a lifetime, it could be too late to tell him…


Arden Lennox's life of what she thought was a fairy tale with the football star and a dream life has come to an end with his death. He has left her with nothing as she had to sell most everything because of his addiction to pain killers and other happenings that are explained.
She leaves her life in Phoenix and moves back to Chicago there her brother who is younger and is successful in real a state has an apartment for her to live in. now feeling like her life has gone backward just instead of living with her parents in Florida she is now living with her younger brother.
Once there and moved in she also realizes that also living there is Tyler Ramirez, who once was her brothers’ geeky friend but is now a hunk of a firefighter. He also helps her brother with the fixing up with doing a lot of the work. He, of course, is elated that Arden has moved back for when he was younger, he had a huge crush on her. That now has become stronger, for now, he knows she is a strong beautiful woman. Especially after walking in on her one day by accident when she was exiting the shower. Though she finds herself attracted to him she is still upset with herself in not seeing the problems that were going on with her husband, feeling like she was a bad wife and maybe she could have helped him.
I found this and the little things like her getting a job slowly were helping her but she still doubted herself as a person who lost someone and that what she could have done to fix her spouse. The author does a good job of expressing that and her need to get past that before she could move on. Hopefully when she does Tyler will still want her. Read this good book and find out what happens. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at
