I thoroughly enjoyed this novella by Sarah O'Rourke!

Carolina, or Caro, starts a new period of her life by moving from California to the south as a librarian,in hopes of a better way of life. Aiden is the fire chief who immediately takes a liking to Caro!

What really stands out is the humour in this story! Here is an example that is memorable- “Yes,” she retorted, nodding vigorously. “I’m absolutely tempted, Aiden. Tempted to find the nearest butter knife and saw your trouble-making tallywhacker clean off!” (Carolina)
The characters even laugh at themselves making them very real and instantly likeable.

This is an easy to read, fast paced short book that makes the reader feel good!

Favorite Quotes:

He’s already sworn off ever sitting on a hiring panel with Aunt Orla again. Did you know that she asked the male candidates to strip down to their skivvies? She says she wanted to make sure they were bringing the ‘right stuff’ to her beloved town!

Aunt Orla is beyond excited to have found some fresh blood to breathe life into our dusty old library. I think she’s got a list of books a mile long that she’d like you to look into ordering. Of course, most of them are X-rated, but at least she’s reading.

Baby, you’ve got curves that would make an artist weep and any priest re-think his life plan.

You’re still a good girl, Caro. You just got a little carried away with the hunky fireman stud and his super-sized hose.

My Review:

Claimed was a quick and steamy tale with an immediate attraction and fast paced storyline packed with playful and bawdy banter and humorous exchanges and observations. Carolina had moved across the country for a fresh start and a new job. She’d been in town less than an hour and an attractive, and smooth talking man she had just met coming into town was calling dibs on her to other men. Aiden made his moves at the speed of light, an obvious player and initially seemed a bit too glib and cocky to be trustworthy, but their chemistry was undeniably electrifying and high voltage at that, as were the sensual scenes – my kindle sizzled! I always enjoy my trips to Paradise, Tennessee and cherish any chance to catch up with or hear about my favorite resident - Aunty Orla.

Claimed by Sarah O'Rourke was a quick and dirty story, but I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this fasted -paced steamy story. This story is packed with some playful and bawdy banter along with humorous exchanges and some great observations .Sarah O'Rourke didn't disappoint me at all with this story ,her characters are well written and the storyline was smooth and was written well. Carolina has just moved to across country for a fresh new start and for a new job. She was only in town for a short time when a smooth talking man that she had just met was calling dibs on her to some of the only men. And that man was one hot sexy alpha called Aiden James who just happened to be the fire chief and boy he didn't waste no time . The chemistry was totally electrifying and really high voltage . I could go on and tell you more about this great story ,but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend that you read this great story ,you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love all of Sarah O'Rourke's books so far and was ... 16 February 2017
By Sassy Southern Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I love all of Sarah O'Rourke's books so far and was excited to read this one. As usual, Sarah did not disappoint.

Carolina is looking to start over after having a bad experience with men. She knows that she needs a fresh start and what better way to do that than in Paradise, Tennessee. After securing a job as the local library she is ready to to move forward but she actually has to get to Paradise first. A flat tire has her stranded on the side of the road and she wishes just once life would cut her a break. Well it seems the Gods have heard her when along comes the fire chief Aiden.

Aiden has had is far share of one night stands but after meeting Carolina he knows she is it for him. One night is all he needs to convince her that she is it. But when morning comes Carolina realizes she is just another notch on his bed post. Aiden needs time to explain but duty calls.

This book had me hooked from the first page and I could not get enough of the hot fire chief, Aiden. The only is I wish that Sarah would continue a little further with the story, no it does not end a cliff hanger. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved this novella. 12 February 2017
By Barbara - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author has written another wonderful storyline involving the small town of Paradise, Tenn. In Claimed we meet Carolina. She lives in California but jumped at the chance to make a fresh start of life when she was offered the Head Librarian job in Paradise. Leaving behind her current way of life and a douche of an ex-boyfriend.

Upon reaching the outskirts of Paradise, Carolina has a flat tire. She has just finished putting the spare on her car when she is startled by the town's gorgeous and sexy fire chief, Aiden. Aiden takes one look at Carolina and declares her his! But Carolina is having no part of that claim no matter how sexy Aiden is. Men are no longer going to run her life. This is a delightfully funny and sexy story of two stubborn people who are determined to have things their way. Even when fate and the best sex ever fight against you. I highly recommend curling up and enjoying the sparks fly as Aiden and Carolina’s story unfolds. 2 Thumbs Up for an awesome Must Read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Addition! 7 February 2017
By Trish Ratna - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Claimed is a sassy-sexy-novella set in the Passion in Paradise series. It is insta-love and Aiden is alpha as hell, totally possessive and if I was Carolina, I wouldn't bother wearing any panties at all. Although Aiden did get his way into Carolina's panties within hour of their meeting, something happened which made Carolina pushed him away. Carolina has issues and I do think that she was being a tad too harsh on Aiden but in the end they both worked it out. I am so happy to revisit this world and I am really hoping to see more secondary characters getting their HEA especially Slade and RJ.

Can Claimed be read as standalone? Absolutely but I would highly recommend that you read the entire series first to get the entire Paradise experience. You wouldn't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Felt like going home to Paradise... 7 February 2017
By Missy@Bookgasms - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh boy, did I love that quick visit with my friends in Paradise. Aiden James is the resident Fire Chief...and latest resident caveman. He "claimed" the town's new sexy librarian, Carolina "Caro" Mayfair, on sight and wasted NO TIME in letting everyone know just that fact... Caro was just a little bit slower on the upswing--but after a night in Aiden's bed, she knew her heart would never let him go... she just needed to get her head and pride on board.

I loved this quick and dirty novella in the Paradise realm. LOVED both Aiden and Caro--their faults and all. And I loved the Easter Egg regarding a beloved McKinnon sister.

Any book set in Paradise, Tennessee by Sarah O 'Rourke already has so much going for it. But when you take the local Fire Chief and the new town librarian and make them the main characters you have a book almost too hot to handle. I just purchased this novella and read it this evening. As always this nook is written with humor and love. All of your favorite characters from Paradise are there Zeke, Honor, Patience, Aunt Orla and others and they added to the richness of Carolyn or Caro and Aiden's story.

Caroline has left her home in California to become the librarian in Paradise a town she remembers from childhood after her relationship had ended. She wanted a fresh new start. One her way into town she had a flat tire and after changing g it herself she was feeling as if her impulsive move might have been a mistake when she meets Aiden the fire chief as he pulls over to see if she is okay. The chemistry between these two in just their first meeting is off the charts. Aiden knows at first sight she is the only one for him. At 35 he his ready to settle down and no woman has ever knocked him for a loop before. This story written by Sarah O'Rourke is rich with vivid descriptions and even her secondary characters are well written and lend much to this story. How Aiden and Caro work through their issues and find their own HEA will amaze and entice you. I quarantee you will read this book from beginning to end with a smile on your face. It will likely become a favorite of yours I know it is one of mine. You will absolutely love it.
