Dirk Krause is an asshole of the first degree. His life is a hell of his own making, and he makes everyone around him just as miserable. When he's injured on the job while fighting a fire, he's nearly unbearable to the hospital staff, and of course no one from his unit cares enough to visit.
Lee Stockton is the new guy at the station, so he gets saddled with the job of bringing Dirk a sympathy bouquet from the guys at the firehouse. To Dirk's surprise, Lee sees through him like a pane of glass and doesn't take any of his crap. Lee's determined to get Dirk to stop being a dick just to push everyone away. When their fighting turns to f--king, will the fireworks shine brightly on a possible relationship or leave them with nothing but ashes?

I picked this book up because.. HELLO, firemen.. However, I was really surprised at how much I ended up liking the characters because of who they were outside of their fireman personas. They were real and I loved them.
Dirk was a jerk, but Lee was the perfect match for him and getting through his hard exterior.
It was short but there was some action with fires, some sexy scenes and the storm from hell all wrapped into it along with one character growing by leaps and bounds while the other one helped him along the path.
The narrator was nice to listen to as he brought the book to life.
I received a free copy of this book to read for Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.
The narration seemed choppy at best. It didn't seem to follow the punctuation and at points I wondered if they read the story prior to recording it. One of the characters voices was just grating and painful to listen too. Read the book - skip the narration.
This wasn't bad and it wasn't anything special. The narrator does a great job but the story is weak. I don't know why I keep expecting anything different from an author that seems to turn stories out like McDonalds does hamburgers and they are all variations of the same story. The story is too short to really be too detail, but it is what it is and I'm a sucker for hot fireman. Not worth a credit, but maybe a sale.
