London bartender Fane thinks he’s hit the jackpot when he finds a rare and expensive service Bot discarded in a dumpster, and he takes it home to get it working again. The Jo-E brings some much-needed companionship to Fane’s lonely life, but there’s something different about this Bot, as indicated by its odd behavior. Fane’s developing feelings toward Jo-E trouble him, and things go from bad to worse when a robotics engineer arrives on Fane’s doorstep, demanding the return of his property. Fane is forced to choose between a hefty reward and following his heart. Giving in to his forbidden desires might get him killed—or change his life forever.

My View:

Okay, sex with bots is a bit squicky in my book. Sorry, it just is. I mean, just the clean up alone shudder. However, if that is your kink, you will not want to miss this odd but satisfying love story.

Fired Up is truly more than a story of opposites attracting. It is the story of overcoming your nature. It is a story of fighting for what/who you love. It is about finding love where you least expect it and fighting to hold onto it with everything you have.

Fire Up My Heart is a quick read by new to me author, Asta Idonea. I held my interest and was free of red flags. I would be interested to read more from this author.
