Give Me Books Promotions: Paige Tyler's Dallas Fire & Rescue Kindle World Release Blitz (Review)



Good morning and happy Friday everyone! So I decided to dip into Paige Tyler's Dallas Fire & Rescue Kindle World. Basically it's a group of authors writing within Paige's Dallas Fire & Rescue series. It's a pretty neat idea and gave me a chance to try several new to me authors through their novellas. I'll be reviewing each book separately and today I'm starting with Slow Burn by Ripley Proserpina. But first, a little more info on Paige's Dallas Fire & Rescue series.

Dallas Fire & Rescue:
New York Times Bestselling Author Paige Tyler's DALLAS FIRE & RESCUE is part of Amazon’s Kindle Worlds, which means some of your favorite authors are now adding their characters and stories to her World.

It’s an amazing world filled with the action and suspense of fighting fires and the drama of saving lives, combined with the intimacy of those moments when the heroes and heroines are brought together amid the danger. From battling huge blazes all across the city to saving accident victims to working with all forms of law-enforcement, Dallas Fire & Rescue explores every facet of heroic action and romantic adventure.

With heroic firefighters and life-saving paramedics, the possibilities for stories are limitless!

The flame has always been smoldering.

If Daisy Zoffler has to choose between losing her best friend or pretending she isn’t madly in love with him, she’ll be the best damn actress who ever lived. Mase Ramirez, a firefighter with Dallas Fire and Rescue, has supported and encouraged Daisy her whole life. No matter what, she could count on him.

But what if Mase’s feelings are deeper than friendship?

An out-of-control arsonist with an obsession for Daisy suddenly ups the ante, spurring Mase to step in. Despite her belief they’re only friends, Mase has been in love with Daisy for years and when she is threatened, he refuses to waste a minute more.

With their emotions finally laid bare, will Mase and Daisy survive the looming danger? Or will the flames consume their fragile relationship?




What’s it About? Mase and Daisy have been friends since they met in high school but neither suspects that the other wants more until an arsonist starts gunning for them both. Now Mase and Daisy are fighting for the chance to turn their solid friendship into something more.



Overall reaction to the story? Slow Burn is such a short story but in that short time I felt I was able to grasp Ripley Proserpina's writing style and I highly enjoyed it. Both Mase and Daisy are professionals and aside from having years of a close friendship between them, they also shared a common goal which was to save lives. I enjoyed both characters but I loved that Mase didn't mess around or tiptoe around telling Daisy his feelings. He went straight to the point and laid out all his cards. That is something I rarely see in a friends to lovers romance. The chemistry between Mase and Daisy was hot (No pun intended), and the transition from friends to something more went pretty smoothly since they had been in love with each other for quite some time.

My only real complaint lies with Daisy. She started off this pretty neat, strong, sassy character but when she was around her "family" (Because really, people that bad shouldn't be called family) she turned into a dull as paste doormat that let herself be manipulated and controlled by people who didn't know what was best for her. I just didn't care for that side of Daisy at all. It was a big letdown for me.

However, I did like this author's style so I'm definitely going to be checking out some of her other work.


Click It or Skip It? Click It. Proserpina makes the most out of a novella but this would have been an amazing full length novel.
