Annabeth triumphs with this first in a new series about hotshot firefighters

49897760._SY475_Burn Zone by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fabulous start to this new series from Annabeth.

It combines the camaraderie of her Out of Uniform series with the small town vibe of her Rainbow Cove books and I loved it.

Lincoln needed a shake or a good talking too so he got his head out of his backside but I totally got him.

Jacob is an honest and direct guy, he wants Linc, always has. But his dead brother’s ghost hangs over them both.

There’s angst, but it never becomes overwrought, Linc is struggling with his own feelings for Jacob and guilt about his best friend’s death.

I loved how Annabeth wound their relationship around the Smokejumper team’s first season following Wyatt’s death and how they tried to come to terms with his little brother taking his spot.

The chemistry between them is incendiary, touched with a sense of the forbidden, as Linc does his best to push Jacob away.

With danger on the edges constantly, this is a romance rollercoaster that ultimately leads to an explosive finish.

Grab it if you love hard-headed men with a soft centre and a feeling of family among a group of men who literally put their lives in each other’s hands.

An impressive opening to this new series

50629425._SY475_Powder & Pavlova by Jay Hogan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This wonderfully evocative New Zealand setting book from Jay gives the reader a really beautiful age gap romance.

I loved the way the passion between Ethan and Tanner was so strong, while at the same time, both were fighting the deeper emotions and fears over the complications falling in love would bring.

With a whole cast of fantastic secondary characters, a real sense of place, and a perfect blend of steamy sex and fairly low intensity angst, this book was another hit.

I’m really excited with where the series goes next too.

Shay Maloney is living his dream—on tour with his pirate/folk-rock band. But you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’re from, and that’s where moody filmmaker and researcher Ollie Pietruska comes in.

The band’s management persuades Shay to let a television company film a documentary about his roots beyond his adoptive Irish family, and Ollie comes into his life knowing more about Shay than Shay’s ever known about himself.

But while Ollie holds the key to Shay’s past, he’s also hiding deep scars. Even as the hardships of the tour bring them closer, Ollie’s demons threaten the blossoming romance. They might both reach the breaking point before Ollie realises he’s been standing on the edge of the world for too long, and it’s Shay who holds the key to his future.

A friends-to-lovers, rock star, road-tripping romance, with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

Promise v2 400

Blurb

Leo Byrne is a cop, Jason Banks is an ex-con. Even after one stolen kiss, something has to give before Leo can convince Jason that falling in love is even an option. 

Adopted at a young age, Leo is part of the sprawling Byrnes family. With his dog Cap, three siblings and a whole mess of nieces and nephews, he is never lonely, and his life is full. Love is the last item on his to-do list, but seeing his best friends Sean and Eric happy and making new families makes him want things he doesn’t think is possible.

Kissing Jason at an event to honor his bravery was one thing, but anything other than that is off limits. Until Jason has no one left to turn to, and it’s Leo who helps him at his lowest. Taking Jason and his daughter into his home is one thing, but falling for the ex-con is something else altogether.

Jason made a deal to keep his daughter safe and spent years behind bars as a result. Volunteering as a convict firefighter was as much about helping the community as saving his sanity, but now that he’s out, he doesn’t even have that.

He’s lost his future, his self-respect, and has no friends or a place to call home. Worst of all, even after rescuing his daughter he still can’t keep her safe from the man who wants to use her as a bargaining chip for money.

Meeting Leo might give Jason a way to keep Daisy safe, but falling for the stubborn cop means the truth has to be revealed, and he could lose everything all over again.

Leo and Jason made my heart happy with this lovely single dad romance

Promise v2 400.jpgPromise by R.J. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so much. It was the one I’d been waiting for right since we were first introduced to this set of best friends and emergency service personnel and RJ didn’t disappoint at all.

Leo and Jason made my heart happy and I absolutely adored Daisy, a precocious almost four-year-old who we are introduced to almost immediately when Jason appears looking for help from firefighter Eric whose life he saved while working as a convict fireman.

I won’t spoil the plot, but suffice it to say, that watching these two radically different but utterly determined men fall in love was a delight.

I’m seriously pleased that the series isn’t over though and I’m very much looking forward now to finding out more about the rest of the characters RJ is introducing us to in more detail.
