The Wedding From Hell: The Rehearsal Dinner & The Reception by J. R. Ward

These two novellas are a prelude to Consumed, the first book in the new Firefighters series, coming soon to the Blue Mood Cafe!




Interesting prelude to the series.

Anne Ashburn and Danny Maguire are both firefighters in the same company, now having to be part of the wedding party for Moose Miller, his best friend and roommate and her firefighter brother. Unfortunately, he’s marrying Bridezilla who’s also got some shade in her background. Adding to this toxic mix is Anne and Danny’s strong attraction to each other that they’re fighting hard to resist.

This was a nice tease, especially as I’m jumping right into the next novella. I like Anne, like Danny but that wedding and reception promises truly to be the wedding from Hell.





Firefighters Anne Ashburn and Danny Maguire are now at the wedding from Hell, still struggling with their now explosive attraction. The day of reckoning is upon them.

There’s a lot more going on in this second novella and I felt like I had a better sense of Danny and somewhat more of Anne. Things progressed rather quickly with some interesting tangents (and steam). It was a nice set up for their upcoming story because it is certainly to be continued. And the wedding couple is probably going to end up being in the marriage from Hell. Classic J. R. Ward!

  1. Have you read consumed? I really enjoyed her other non-paranormal serious and I cannot remember the name at the moment!
    This looks really interesting I love reading books about people that don’t get along with each other, LOL!

  2. I love Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, so I may have to add this one too! She’s a one of a kind author…I love her writing style! Great reviews, Jonetta, you’ve definitely piqued my interest in these!
