  • Christy
    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!
  • 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...

    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.

  • 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...

    This is a short little novella that sets up the beginning of the Consumed book by J.R. Ward that releases 10/09/18. I've already read that book and its a 5 star read for me. I'm not posting my review this early for it but you need to check it out! Even though this is a very short book as far as novellas go, you still need to read it! I love these characters! I can't wait for more from this new series from J.R. Ward.

    5/5 — it’s a great teaser and I’m invested...the Main Characters are extremely similar to, two BDB characters. •••••••••••• there aren’t any spoilers in this reviewOk this part 1 of the novella is called The Wedding From Hell, yeah that’s going on but that whole situation is a vehicle to get the main characters together in a non-sexual way so their “relationship” can begin to flesh out. The story is written i...

    :::Overall Rating :: 4 starsSeries :: Novella one of The Wedding From Hell series, which is prefacing her Firefighters series.Hero/Heroine :: Danny/AnnePOV :: Alternating.Cliffhanger :: YES!HEA :: (view spoiler)[Not yet. (hide spoiler)]:::I will read anything J.R. Ward writes. Sure, most of her stories all have the same tone. The characters generally all speak the same, regardless of the series. But still. I AM ADDICTED. And this is all I get to ...
  • Up All Night Book Addict
    As soon as I first saw an ad for Consumed, I knew I had to read it. I may not have read Ward's fantasy and vampire books, but I did read her Bourbon Kings series, and I loved it. Then when I saw she was doing this three part prequel, I jumped on it. I pre ordered all three.This is a quick read. A glimpse into what is to come in the future. I really enjoyed getting a first glimpse of what could either be a budding relationship or a cataclysm of a ...
  • Elisha Blade
    Firemen and firewomen This novella is well written, but it doesn’t draw me into the main characters. I love the WARDen, but not sure i will continue this series. Will have to see what other reviewers have to say before making a purchase. I’m more interested in a side character. The WARDen is good for that forcing you to read all her writing so perhaps I’ll be pleasantly surprised and continue. But again based off this I wouldn’t purchase ...
  • Wendy Jenkins
    Give me more , Hot short story!! 🔥🔥🔥🚒Another scorcher from the Goddess J R Ward!!! Great introduction to her new series about firefighters. Hot connections... Anne and Danny's story starts off with electricity that is hard to deny. The chemistry is erotic. I can't wait for the next installment. Left me drooling for more!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🚒💕
  • Melvena Asa
    The Wedding from HellHoly Crap on a Cracker. If this is the prequel for Consumed it's going to be Hotter than the Firemen that are in it. Means we will be needing fire extinguisher close when we read it or it will need a warning label on it. So hot it might explode in your hands. Wear protective gear while reading
  • Ana
    Tiny teaser...but great nonetheless! This is part 1 of a 3 part novella so it's quite short. But, it's definitely enough to fall for Danny and to begin to see the sexy romance that will develop between him and Anne. I've already got part 2 preordered...this is just such a juice little story and I can't wait for the new series to become available in October!
  • Renee
    Surprisingly I'm intrigued I had no intention of reading this new series by J. R. Ward. Now don't get me wrong, J. R. Ward is one of my favorite authors, but this is not in my genre of reading. I rarely read thrillers, but this novella has changed my mind about this upcoming series! I most definitely will be reading this!!!
  • Yessenia
    4 stars I like to read all at once and not by parts but I couldn't wait!. This was just too funny. Oh Dannyboy, you're just to cute. Anne has her moments but I still like her. With Danny's reputation you can understand her doubts but she can't deny she wants him. Next!
  • Raven Black
    Introduction to a new world I really enjoyed reading this novella. I was nervous because I heard Jr ward was writing a series outside the Black Dagger brotherhood world but now that I have read this I cannot wait to pick up the first book in this series. Anne is an amazing character, and the chemistry between her and Danny is through the roof.
    Wedding hellI've read all JRWards brotherhood books and was excited to spot another book by this fantastic author. I was not disappointed with this novella even though it is nothing like her other books I've read. It's funny in places, the tension between the two not yet lovers is not and I can't wait for the next installment!
  • Barbara Preziosi
    Loved it! This short novella definitely wet my appetite for the next novella installment and the full book in her new series. Waiting to see if my prediction about the engaged couple pans out and the relationship between the two main characters.
  • Kristina
    White Hot Fire of AttractionI cannot wait for the second part of this prequel! Anne and Danny’s story is just starting to heat up, and there is no fire in sight. But the attraction between the two is white hot.
  • Jasmine M.
    She does it againYou can’t go wrong with anything from J.R. Ward. A quick intro into the characters in her new Consumed series. I didn’t want it to end. I can’t wait to the second installment.
  • Darcy
    This short story did it's job. I find I'm intrigued about Anne and Danny. Want to know more about the firefighters that all work together. I'm also intrigued whether this wedding will actually happen. At this point I'm hoping not.
