Set the Night on Fire by Laura Trentham

Release Date - July 31, 2018

Ella and Mack have a turn at romance in Set the Night on Fire. If you haven't read the other stores, you really don't need to. I do, however, recommend the entire series.

Since buying out Ford Abbott's stake in a family garage, Ella has not had a warm welcome. What was first an investment became a setting for some of her best memories of her brother. She doesn't want to give up the garage and hopes she can win Mack Abbott over with her marketing skills.

Mack is furious that his brother sold a share of the family business. It's supposed to stay in the family. Despite his growing attraction to Ella, he must get her share back. To do so, he'll really push her buttons. He never expects her to stand up to her tests, however. He starts to wonder if his desire to buy Ford's share back is really worth it.

I loved the chemistry between Ella and Mack in the previous entry in the A Cottonbloom Novel series. This book is not disappointing. Plus, there's another potential character introduced and I'd like to see her get her own story.

I do have to say that I was a bit let down with the resolution with Ella and her ex-husband. It didn't seem to fit with the character he had been. It's a minor part in the story, however, so it was easy to move past that.

Over all, Set the Night on Fire was another great addition to this very romantic, character-driven series.
