[Amazon Review Tour] I Burned Down His House by Jessica Frances


Title: I Burned Down His House
Series: Love at First Crime Series
Author: Jessica Frances
Genre: NA Romance/Suspense
Release Date: November 28, 2017





She burned his house down, so he lit a fire between them that she could never extinguish.


So, I burned his house down.
It was an accident.
I mean, technically, the dog did it.
Well, the dog helped me to do it.
Did I mention it was an accident?
When circumstances mean I suddenly have a new housemate,
A man who is my ultimate fantasy,
And my entire world is turned upside down by new friends,
And a dog who likes to get me into trouble,
I have to wonder how my life got so crazy.
Add in my neighbor, who is under investigation;
Some unfinished business from the past, which just won’t go away;
Interfering family, who don’t know when to stop;
And mixed signals, making me wonder if fantasies really can come true,
And you have my new, hectic, crazy life.
But, when things take a dangerous turn,
And lives are on the line,
Will we all make it through in one piece?
Or is everything destined to crumble down around us?
Who would have thought that burning down a house would change everything so much?
Then again, as some people say: there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.












Trying not to feel like a loser that I have Joey’s number memorized, I dial, hoping like hell he picks up. It has to be in the incredibly early hours of morning, so there is every chance, if he hasn’t come home yet, it’s because he’s out with someone and won’t answer.
After five, drawn-out, torturous rings, he finally picks up.
“What?” he grumbles. I can’t tell if I woke him up, or if he’s just annoyed to be disturbed.
“Hey, Joey, it’s Teagan—”
“Who?”
I pause, annoyed I’m so forgettable he can’t remember who he gave his house key to! “Teagan Bevon, the woman who lives next door?”
“Oh … Oh!” There is finally recognition in his voice. “Right. Look, Teags”—he sounds so distracted I don’t think he even noticed he gave me a nickname—“I’m kinda busy—”
“But—”
“—so I’ll just see you later—”
“Wait!” I cry out, afraid I will hear the dial tone any second.
“Actually, you probably won’t see me later. I’m going to be—”
“I BURNED YOUR HOUSE DOWN!” I scream into the phone and am finally met with silence. “Joey?” I whisper, fearful he already hung up.
“Can you repeat that for me?” he finally gasps out.
“I …” Now I feel nervous. “I … umm … I accidently”—I use too much emphasis on the word, making me sound extra guilty—“burned down your house.”
“Are you okay?”
My heart skips a beat. I just told this man that I burned down his house and his first thought is if I’m okay?
“Some smoke inhalation, but nothing serious. I’m so sorry about your things—”
“How about Karma?”
“Karma got out fine. She’s with the Glovers,” So … maybe she’s not okay. The almost ninety-year-old couple may not be quite at the same speed as Karma.
As he sighs in relief, my hands begin to shake again. 
“Joey, I’m so sorry.”




4.5 Stars from Brianna!

This book y'all! I'm not sure how I've missed out on this series and this author until now but holy wow was this book so freaking amazing. Sweet. Sexy. Smoking. Fun. Laugh out loud. Unique storyline. Jessica Frances delivered such a fun romance that had tears leaking out of my eyes and me holding my stomach from all the laughs.

She was only there to check in on his dog...not start any trouble and certainly not to burn down his house but unfortunately that's exactly what happened.

I Burned Down His House is the third standalone novel in the Love At First Crime series and what a story this was. From that epic start to the series of events that unfolded next for these two.... completely epic and so very good in a lot of ways. Joey and Teagan were a welcomed different breath of fresh air... in an overly muddled world full of angst and drama.

I'm off to grab books one and two before I do a nice reread of this one....again. If you haven't run across this series or this author yet then run run run and definitely don't be like me... start from the beginning.

I highly recommend this book.




Born and raised in South Australia, Jessica spends her days working in a bakery, afternoons catching up on lost sleep, and nights reading and writing. Writing has always been a passion of hers, however it wasn’t until recently that she decided to put pen to paper and make things official.
