Some Like It Sizzling (Entangled Select Contemporary)

Title- Some Like it Sizzling

Author- Robbie Terman

Release Date- January 12th, 2015



Former model and restaurateur Jenna Rawley has a plan. Marry the man who looks best on paper, and live the secure life she craved as a child. But when her fiancé runs off, with her money, Jenna’s left with nothing but the past she’s spent years outrunning. With no other options, she’s forced to move back home, find a second job, and come face-to-face with a man who has every reason to distrust her.

Firefighter Luke Kearney never forgave Jenna for leaving town after he proposed in high school. So, he’s not especially happy when he’s forced to plan their fifteen-year-reunion with her. Jenna is the last person he can trust. But the more they work together, the more Luke realizes that the girl who broke his heart might have become the woman he could love forever.


There are a lot of second chance books out there and it’s a type of book I really enjoy reading. During this book I was able to see both main characters Luke and Jenna grown and change, and that is something I love seeing. I also loved Luke! Well, I loved him until he turned into a jerk toward the end! I’m not really sure how I felt about Jenna, she was very frustrating and I just wanted her to explain why she left all those years ago. I had my suspicions and I ended being half correct!

It was very interesting to have Luke’s wife’s POV while reading the story, not sure it was to set up the next book in the series or just to get more perspective on Luke. It did allow me to realize how much Luke loved Jenna, even if he didn’t see it himself. Olivia was a very likeable character but having her point of view showed how she wasn’t really there to break anyone up.
