    Free on Amazon!Besides writing about sexy vampires, J.R. Ward apparently can also write about sexy fire fighters.I loved the beginning of Anne and Danny's story and I looking forward to seeing what happens next for these two.The reception: Wedding from Hell 3: Consumed:
  • katwiththehat
    This was a neat free! novella that introduced Anne and Danny, the characters who will feature in JR Ward’s new firefighter’s series, Consumed. Basically, one of the other firefighters is getting married in what looks to be a disaster of a wedding, and Anne and Danny are dragged along for the festivities. There are definite sparks between them and Ward’s signature writing style is there for sure.Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered...

    I am a huge fan of anything JR Ward, so when I saw she had a free novella as sort of a prequel to her new release out this October, Consumed, I downloaded it right away. This novella took less than an hour to read and I have to say, after finishing it, I can't wait for more! I am completely invested in these characters and can't wait to see what happens next!
  • Nicola
    3.5 stars.I predict potential in this series. Lots of delicious potential.Definitely recommend grabbing this and the next novella whilst they're FREE!
  • Maria Clara
    La Ward es mucha Ward y este avance promete mucho, pero es tan corto que poco más se puede decir.
  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    FREE novella from JR Ward!!!It's the beginning of her new series coming up. I was lucky enough to get an arc of Consumed from Netgalley, so I snagged the prequel novellas to get prepared to read it. This novella was a great little escape from reality, a perfect Sunday afternoon short read. It follows coworkers Danny and Anne and the events leading up to the rehearsal dinner for their friends.I gotta say, this novella has me excited for what is to...
  • Auntee
    Ahhh...the missing prologue that should've been included in Consumed.It gives a little more background to the characters and answers a few questions.Not sure if this was edited out, or recently written to fill in some holes. But I still enjoyed it.
  • Natalie The Biblioholic
    Serving as an introduction/warm-up to Ward's latest novel, Consumed, this novella introduces us to the heart of the story - its characters. There's Anne, who wants to be a guy's gal and so is treated like one. She's the newest firefighter in the company and instead of being part of the bridal party, she's a groomsman. There's Danny, her potential love interest, a true hero and one of the best firemen in the company. Then there's a couple of sid...
  • ♥Rachel♥
    A good, hot build-up between Danny and Anne. I wish the best of luck to Moose, their firefighter brother, because Deandra is a piece of work.

  • Marta Cox
    This quick read is setting up the full length book that's coming soon about fire fighters . Anne and Danny work together and this novella is about the days leading up to a friends wedding. The chemistry is there for all to see but buttoned up Anne has no wish to become another notch on the bed post of always foot loose Danny or does she ? If you've enjoyed this authors paranormal stories then you will be very happy to hear that these new characte...

    Si con esta primera entrega del avance de su nueva novela, Consumed, la Ward quería ponerme la miel en los labios, lo ha conseguido. Pero es tan corta que no sé qué puntuación darle.
  • Fabi
    well...that was really good! It's just a little part of a story and I don't know the characters because I haven't read any others, but I really liked the MCs here. I'm continuing for sure.
  • Tanja ~ T's Book ~ KT Book Reviews
    Oh this is just fab!
  • MissCherry
    Por lo que he podido conocer de la historia de Anne y Danny en este primer aperitivo de Consumed, tengo claro que esta nueva serie me va a gustar. Que hype por leer la otra parte de este relato introductorio este acaba justo en el momento más álgido.
  • Carvanz
    What a great start for the upcoming book Consumed. This is a wonderful introduction to Anne and Danny as well as the crew they work with. It covers a bit of their history as well as how they have worked together, thought about each other and feel about one another. It’s definitely leading us down an interesting and steamy road. There’s a tinny hint of trouble on the horizon from a past liaison of Danny’s so I’ll be looking out for that bu...
  • Ali
    Seriously??? 48 pages!! Yes, you read it correctly FOURTY EIGHT PAGES. This is some kind of con job or something.This must be the shortest book ever. And it ends before anything even starts! It's like "watch episode one for free and subscribe to watch episode two"...I never really look at the page count, but I will be in the future.And no, I will not be reading anything else by this author ever again.
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    This was a great little teaser to the up and coming new book Consumed. It's crazy how quick the author hooked me on Anne and Danny. One of their firefighter buddies is getting married and the whole team are groomsmen, even Anne. The bride and groom seem like a complete disaster and watching everything unfold between those to and the growing attraction to Anne and Danny was pretty riveting. I can't wait to see what happens in the next prequel.Ther...
  • Jessica
    I love J. R Ward she can definitely write some steamy scenes. Yes this is different from her norm no paranormal but so worth it. I mean when I got to the last page I was so upset it was done. I could have kept reading for hours it was so damn good.Anne is a female firefighter surrounded by men. She feels the sexual attraction with Danny but is trying not to get burn. He is so tired of wanting her from afar. This series is a must read and enjoy th...

    It was great to get a glimpse of things before Consumed and how Anne and Daniel's relationship started!
  • Λίνα Θωμάρεη
    OOOOOOOOOh come on..... really????Now I want desperately read "Consumed".... I think 2,5 stars it's pretty good rate about this 45pages book....
  • Jessica (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
    The sparks are already flying in part 1 of this prequel and we've barely scratched the surface of this storyline. The chemistry between these firefighters is scorching hot, their chemistry is electric. The Rehearsal Dinner has me SO DAMN ANXIOUS for more of what's shaping up to be one SMOKING HOT romance!!I was already anxious for the release of Consumed BEFORE I read Part 1 of this prequel. Now?? I'm beyond DESPERATE for it. Danny and Anne are a...

    The Rehearsal Dinner introduces us to the men and women of the 499 firehouse in New Brunswick, Massachusetts. This is a short story that quickly introduces the crew and our heroine Anne Ashburn and hero Danny "Dannyboy" Maguire. Robert "Moose" Miller's wedding nuptials are days away and his fiance aka "bridezilla" is upset that Anne is a groomsmen. While the story is short, we gain history on Anne and Danny and bear witness to the begins of their...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    I love the hell out of this author. I doubt there is anything she could write I didn’t like to a great degree. I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of Consumed. I am also not a re-reader. So this prelude is an expansion what I already know. This took the wind out of my sails. I know had I not read Consumed already, this story would be killer.So my rating is not really author based and really for the reasons I mentioned above. I didn’t enjoy i...
