Summary

A gorgeous new sexual awakening romance with sizzling first times, snarky British banter, and off-the-charts chemistry.

Life doesn’t always pan out as you expect. When it explodes in my face, literally, an old friend offers me a place to heal and a job renovating the kitchen of Burlington’s coolest wine bar.

V&V is a chill fest. Living above it should be a blast. But I’m not built to be a social butterfly. Not anymore. I’m a damaged man.

And I’m not its target clientele.

At least, I think I’m not until I come face-to-face with the most beautiful human I’ve ever seen. Joss is the new chef and my roommate. He has hair like spun gold, and it’s as pretty as the rest of him. Crystal blue eyes. Megawatt smile.

I can’t stop staring. Or thinking about him. He chases my nightmares away. And when he spots my crush a mile off, his solution to our chemical attraction blows my mind.

An experiment of sorts. Science. Is this sexual exploration or sex education?

Either way, Joss is only here for the summer. He’s leaving.

I can’t fall in love with him.

I can’t.

Shame my foolish heart never got the memo.

Wildfire is a heartfelt MM friends-to-lovers hurt/comfort romance in the True North world, with a brooding lumbersexual, a wild-hearted chef, sweet angst, and all the Vermont food. Content warning: contains mentions of depression, ADHD, suicidal ideation, and PTSD recovery.

The mix of the two narrator's didn't work.

The write up about the story really intrigued me, enough to buy!

I enjoy Garrett Leigh books but was unable to finish this one simply due to the narration.
Dan Calley and Tim Paige are brilliant in their own right but i found dan in this case was unable to do a decent American accent and Tim did an awful attempt at a british accent!
It was confusing when they were completing the dialogue for the opposing character and i struggled to understand who was saying what.

Sorry guys it didn't just jel.

Disappointed in this audio

I usually ADORE Ms. Leigh’s books on audio, so I listened to this one…and for the first time ever that backfired on me. I REALLY like both performers, especially Dan Calley, but neither of them could pull off the opposite accents. Tim Page didn’t master the British accent and Dan Calley’s American accent sounded like his regular voice. It was frustrating to listen to when they spoke for the opposite character, and it repeatedly took me out of the story.

I loved Joss and Kai. Kai is recovering from an incident at work and Joss has suffered from his issues his whole life. They’re good for each other and understand each other like no one else. Kai goes through a sexual awakening which is a good distraction from his PTSD. Their organic progression from friends to lovers to partners is refreshing and endearing.

There is a quick reference (almost six degrees of separation) to a character in my favorite book by this author which made me giddier than it probably should have.

Tanner and Jax, who were in Ms. Leigh’s book from the Vino & Veritas series, Heartscape, were major side characters in this book but it’s not necessary to read that book before reading this one. However, I’d recommend it because that story is fantastic.

Sweet, sexy story

Love that both leads are bi!

I do find it weird when these books end with a proposal. Is that supposed to be hot?

Loved these two

This is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed this sweet love story and watching their story develop. Much love for the excellent narrators as well. As I do with most reviews of Garrett Leigh books I mention that my favorite & many-times-read of her books is "Misfits", should anyone be looking for more from this author.

Low Angst. Great story.

This is the kind of book I love. Well developed characters and story line. Great writing. Great narration. Sexy. Lots of feels.

Definitely worth the credit.

Weird story transitions threw me.

I like the characters and the interesting challenges they fade with ADHD,Tourette’s, and PTSD. However, I can’t help but notice the diagnosis of ADHD seems to fall a bit short of explaining the severity of Joss’s behavior patterns. That was a bit disconcerting.

Their respective diagnoses played a huge role in character development, to the point that it felt to me that the writing failed to really smoothly propel the characters from one place/conversation/event to another. One minute there’s a meltdown in the kitchen and suddenly (with only a sentence or do of transition) we are in a completely different location with different characters, or with the main characters having decided to go do some activity together. They would decide to ride bikes home and I’m like, wait, where’d the bikes come from?

I had to back up and re-listen constantly to catch the explanation for their movement from one scene to the next within a single chapter. The writing felt jerky and abrupt a lot, focusing on internal dialogue and circumstances almost to the exclusion of making the movement of the storyline meaningful.

Will probably not listen to the rest of this series, or this writer again.

Acquired Taste

I wanted to love this book. It's hard to tell if it's the narrators or the story, but it took a bit to get used to listening to this. Tim Paige has done better in other books I've heard from him. The other narrator is new to me and his accent is not what I expected. By midway, I had adjusted to combo of these narrators and this author, but I never got as invested as I'd hoped.

I really enjoyed this book so much. It was so sweet and the Dan and Tim narrated this book so so good. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I love books that have a struggle but no break-ups. So.may books find happiness then break up and we havento wait till the end for the make up but this book had some struggles but always moving forward to the HEA
