Book Review: Hiding In The Smoke by Ofelia Martinez *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of Hiding In The Smoke by Ofelia Martinez ahead of the blog tour.

It's been a long time since I've read anything quite like Hiding In The Smoke. Years, in fact. And oh boy was it a treat.

Although the first part of a series it stands up on it's own and I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for something particularly steamy. I'll be reading on for sure.

Hiding In The Smoke by Ofelia Martinez book cover


One night.
No cuddling.
No sleepovers.

These are the rules I live my love life by. Running a business as a bar owner leaves no time for relationships—or their drama. But when I meet international rock star Brenner Reindhart, he makes me want to break all the rules . . .


Keeping Industrial November at the top of the best-selling charts for over eight years has taken a toll on me, and I’m ready to slow down.

I’ve been burned by love before, and I’m finally ready to try again. I think Sofia Ocampo might just be the one. Only, she has no plans to ever be in a relationship.

Aware she has no interest in it, I still give her my heart.

I can only hold my breath and hope she won’t break it.

This high-steam, contemporary rock star romance contains adult content with some taboo elements not suitable for all readers. Read responsibly. All novels in the Industrial November on Tour series can be read in any order.

5 Word Review: Lust, independence, respect, fame, love.

Well THAT was hot. This book will definitely keep you warm at night.

Sofia is a strong independent woman who doesn't need anyone, and especially any man, in her life. She's got it sorted and is successful in her own right.

Bren is a rock star used to women falling at his feet. He's arrogant and used to being in charge.

Sofia and Bren were such an unlikely couple and yet they worked so freaking well.

From one night of steamy passion it's like their love ignites, even though Sofia especially does her best to deny and avoid it. I think Bren is mostly attracted to Sofia's disdain of him at first. Not being worshipped is new to him. But it very quickly develops to more. The chemistry between them is amazing, and I loved to see Bren compromise and humble himself a little.

“One night. No strings. No repeats. No sleeping over.”

This was an excellent steamy romance and I'll definitely read more by this author.
