Review: Playing With Fire

Playing with Fire (Portwood Brothers #3) by Emily Robertson
Published: March 22nd 2016
*I received the book in exchange of an honest review*

Jackson wants the one thing he can’t have, his brother’s girlfriend. He tried to forget her, but even spending nine months in Afghanistan didn’t make him want her any less. Now he was heading home, a home he shares with his brother and the woman they both want. Emma believed that you should never follow your heart. She tried that once, and she ended up alone and broken. After she put the pieces back together, she decided she’d rather forget about love and just have fun. Who needed someone special anyway? Certainly not her. When both of them realize they are on they are on the same page, they embark in a hot, no-strings arrangement that satisfies their needs without getting their hearts involved. But when you play with fire, someone always gets burned.


I was very intrigued with Jax after the last book, with the epilogue where we find he wants Peyton too I was looking forward to reading this and Emily Robertson didn't disapppoint.

When Jax and Emma meet they are attracted to each other and so they decide to start an affair, after all one is in love with a woman he can't have and the other is determined not to get hurt again, so it seems like a good deal.

I love how the interac with each other, Jax is a total alpha male and very protective but Emma can stand her own and despite they didn't want a relationship they easily start a rutine and devolop a friendship that is beautiful. Jax has someone to talk to and who understands him in a way the rest don't. And I love reading how little pieces of Emma's wall broke down while Jax was there.

Their realtionship is fast and hot and I don't think these two could have gotten it any other way but every glimps we get of how much they care or how scare they were made really happy. The depth the author gives, not just to the story but the characters made the book great. While the friends with benefits is very well used, the story behind each character is great and makes it special.

Playing With Fire is a fast hot read with turns and little drama. While you can read it as a stand alone, the book is a lot better if you read the whole series.
