All Fired Up by Dylan Newton | Book Review

All Fired Up by Dylan Newton was on my must read list. You see, Newton cemented her way on my list with How Sweet It Is and the whole upstate New York in autumn setting which is my ideal. As it turns out, How Sweet It Is was not a fluke. I also genuinely enjoyed All Fired Up. This book is also set in Wellsville, which is in Western New York, near Buffalo during summer. I won’t lie, I am hoping maybe the book featuring the third brother is set during winter or spring. Give me all the upstate seasons!

Newton’s latest, All Fired Up, follows Imani, a high powered publishing publicist. Imani is hyper organized and always on the go. She is consistently putting out so many fires at once. As she is promoted, the pressures continue to rise. However, this summer she finds herself in Wellsville taking care of her grandmother who will be recovering from surgery. Imani is forced to slow down a little bit.

Kate from the previous book is pregnant and due with her baby over the summer. At Kate’s wedding, Imani hooked up with Drake’s brother, Zander. She had planned to not let it go anywhere — especially as Zander has a more lackadaisical approach to life than Imani does. The chemistry is too intense to ignore, though. And so, Zander and Imani end up exploring the feelings between them.

I fully liked All Fired Up. Dylan Newton had me falling for Imani and Zander. Both characters have their strengths and their charms. I could find things to relate to for each of them. Imani’s care for her grandmother was so sweet – by the way. And Zander was someone everyone in town could rely on and people came to for help. Also, there’s a parrot who is kind of funny in the scenes he is in. The adult scenes were decent too — not too overwhelming and made sense in context. This book is such a fast read and was one I looked forward to winding down with. I cannot wait to see what’s next from Dylan Newton — particularly the book about the third brother.
