Isabella is not your typical college student at Hartman College. She is smart, beautiful, wealthy, and just found out she is missing a Philosophy credit. She decides to take an extra class in order to graduate on time. She discovers the Professor, Shane Brooks, is a new Doctorate student and the chemistry between them begins from the start. Shane and Isabella are both drawn to each other, but they try to fight the draw….eventually give in.
Forbidden Heat is more than just a student/teacher love story. The book contains several subplots that all together make for a fun, suspenseful, and steamy novel. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. *Voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy* <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Midnight Heat is an exciting and fun book about Chloe and Grayson. We are introduced to Chloe in the first book of the series, Forbidden Heat by J.L. White. On the night Chloe is supposed to get married, she goes out and meets Grayson. Grayson happens to be the perfect man for Chloe and after an evening of mind-blowing sex, she runs. The connection that Grayson and Chloe have is much stronger than Chloe is ready for. So, she runs out when he takes a shower… leaving no way for him to contact her.
Chloe still thinks about Grayson months later and is shocked when her close friend Sam brings Grayson on a weekend cruise celebrating their friend Isabella’s wedding. Grayson is also shocked to see Chloe and feels caught between Sam and Chloe. Neither tell Sam and it becomes an exciting, suspenseful love story that tests the strength of friendship and love. You are able to read Midnight Heat on its own, but I recommend reading Forbidden Heat first to fully appreciate this story. **Voluntarily Reviewed a Gifted Copy**

Eternal Heat, which is the third novel in the Firework Girls series by J.L. White, tells the story of Ashley and Erik. Ashley is starting her second year as a graduate student at Hartman College. As she prepares to audition for an upcoming competition, she hears the Professor call out the name of the next student. She is stunned to see it is her ex-boyfriend, Erik, who she has not seen or heard from in 5 years. Erik is also stunned to see Ashley as they did not part on good terms.
Ms. White takes us back 5 years to how they met, fell in love, and ultimately broke up. It really helped me understand why Ashley is so quiet, studious, and so taken with the piano. I just loved this story and was heartbroken by what occurred to them both. I loved how it ended and absolutely recommend this series to anyone who loves a touching story filled with a lot of emotions. **Voluntarily Reviewed a Gifted Copy**

Nuclear Heat is the fourth and final book in the Firework Girls series by J.L. White. This is Samantha and Jack’s story, which I have been looking forward to reading! Nuclear Heat did not contain much of a backstory as their story was told throughout the series. You may read Nuclear Heat on its own, but I do recommend reading the series in order.
Jack is close to all the Firework girls, but he and Sam have always been best friends. His feelings for Sam change suddenly after something happens to her, leaving Jack confused as to what to do. He does not communicate his feelings, which causes him to misunderstand how Sam feels. Jack then starts to date another woman, Emily, attempting to move on. Sam realizes that she’s jealous of Emily and has feelings for Jack as well. It takes some time for them to communicate their feelings, but once they get their act together…. wow! This book was so hot, steamy, and well worth the wait! I love this series and a great ending to the Firework Girls! **Voluntarily Reviewed a Gifted Copy**
5.0 out of 5 stars‘Marriage is fine for some people, but it’s got nothing to do with me.’
24 August 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
‘Let’s get one thing straight, marriage is fine for some people, but it’s got nothing to do with me.’ Author J.L. White specializes in erotica - ‘steamy romances featuring smart, sexy women and the swoon-worthy men who adore them. Her sexy love stories are full of passion but don't skimp on the tenderness.’ The market for novels of this nature seems to grow daily, but then just look at what is on television now and on selfies and the appetite of the reading public is evident.
THE FIREWORKS GIRLS is on of J.L.’s most popular series. Four books in all they are easily read as stand alone novels. The books in order of publication are FORBIDDEN HEAT, MIDNIGHT HEAT, ETERNAL HEAT and NUCLEAR HEAT. As a teaser the initial book is referenced. J.L.’s sense of humor comes to the fore in her firsts paragraphs- ‘So here, at Hartman College, I’m Isabella. Just... Isabella. Call me a dork, but it’s almost like having a secret identity. It’s even more thrilling than being surrounded by a bunch of college guys and more alcohol than I’ve ever seen in one place at one time. Yeah, I’m totally enjoying the secret identity thing….My grandfather was Italian and my grandmother was Greek; my caramel-colored skin and dark eyes reflect my heritage. When I was very small, I felt a little out of place. My family’s excessive wealth didn’t help. Even after I matured and grew into what I know the guys consider a tall, Italian beauty, I still sometimes feel a little self-conscious in my own body.’ So we enter the world of Isabella Procopio Caivano Nikas Maddox, her college years, her coming of age and her escapades with her Firework Girls. And as J.L. summarizes her college foray, ‘Don’t Pet the Teacher. They call us the Firework Girls. I’m Isabella. My comfort zone consists of a bank of test tubes and a Bunsen burner. But having to take a philosophy class to graduate from college—well, that’s causing a different kind of burn altogether. I mean, the hottest professor at Hartman is looking right at me. Can you blame me for looking back?’
Playful fun mixed with steamy erotica (though it does take a while to get there) make this a quick evening read and that is just one of the reasons this author has caught on. Grady Harp, August 18
The Firework Girls are a group of four young women who met in their freshman year and have been best friends ever since. The first romance starts in their senior year with Isabella and Professor Shane, then moves on to the post-graduation romance of Chloe and Grayson. The third book has Ashley reuniting with her high school sweetheart, Erik, while the fourth one teams up Sam and Jack, who discover a new depth to their friendship.
Each of these is a standalone romance, but as the girls (and Jack, the only male member of the Firework Girls) are very close so the books overlap a bit, making them perfect for a boxed set. The writing is stellar, the romances are deeply emotional and sizzling with sexy times, and the characters become friends you'll feel you've known forever. I loved each one, and highly recommend them - individually and together.
This entire series is one of my all time favorites. Nuclear Heat being my favorite. Jordyn white always knows what she needs to write in order to captivate her readers. She made me fall in love with all of her characters from page one. You won't regret one clicking this!
