Make Me Blaze

Bringing the Heat 3

Dominic Scotto is the heir to the Scotto Empire. He is a complex man who is also hot and sexy. Dominic takes a chance on love only for it to backfire in his face. If his problems were not bad enough he then gets kidnapped by someone seeking answers about his father and their business dealings. I liked Dominic he seemed willing to be honest and not protect anyone.

Smoke is a mystery. I am not sure that anyone outside a couple of people really know him. He is a complex man who is good at his job. He thinks in ways most people would not and wears a mask to cover his identity etc. I loved that shortly after taking Dominic Smoke starts to fall for him. It’s almost like he knew from the start that Dominic was innocent but did not want to be fooled, just in case.

The chemistry between Smoke and Dominic is blistering. While the part of Dominic falling for Smoke still strikes me as unrealistic, I liked how it was handled. With Dominic’s background and family, it was a possibility. The sex scenes were hot and spicy.

Make Me Blaze is the third book in the Bringing the Heat series by Avril Ashton. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would. It seems that Smoke understood a part of Dominic that even he did not want to face.

I found this story to be well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting even if it was unrealistic at times. Overall, this was a great story. I can’t wait to read more from this series.


Book Blurb for Make Me Blaze

Fresh from catching his lover in bed with another man, Dominic Scotto is grabbed off the street and taken hostage. The identity of his kidnapper is a mystery, what the man wants, though, not so much. Shackled and trapped, Dominic’s resilience is put to the test as his captor carries out a carefully crafted plan to divest him of his secrets.

With the heir to the Scotto empire naked and bound before him, the man known as Smoke will do whatever he must to get the answers he seeks. Amid a firestorm of anger and distrust, between pain and pleasure, two men reach for each other in the darkness, but it’s not over yet. Under the sun’s harsh brightness, Smoke remains elusive, a man without a face or name, and Dominic is still a target mired in secrets.
