Publisher's Summary

Only total desperation could reunite Dianna Kelley with Sam MacKenzie, the irresistible bad boy she walked out on ten years ago. But the fearless firefighter with the awesome wilderness skills is the only one who can take her where she needs to go. It's a gamble-tracking down her endangered sister while keeping Sam and their undeniable attraction at arm's length. Not easy when they're trekking into a remote corner of the Rockies, where she's got to trust her former lover with her life.

Despite their past, Sam never could refuse a damsel in distress, especially one who has haunted his dreams for years. He'll help find her sister and get Dianna out of his system once and for all. But soon it's hard to tell whether the greatest threat is from the rushing rapids, the deadly enemy on their trail, or the passion that's sending them straight into the line of fire...

    Story
    "Standard"

    This was a completely standard romance novel. Nothing special in my opinion. There wasn't a good "meet que" because the characters had a past. Some of it seemed a little unrealistic and I was especially bogged down with her constant thoughts. I finally had to skip through some of the later parts of the story because I was irritated with the female character. The story is OK but its almost two stories going on at the same time past/present and neither one is really well developed. I'm saddened that this was a feature book on audible and will not make the mistake of assuming something is good just because it's featured!

    "AN EMOTIONAL ACTION PACKED STORY"

    A good follow-up to book 1 (but I did feel it wasn't quite as good) about a super sexy handsome Hot Shot fireman and what he goes through for love and that lucky lady needs him bad - in more ways than one. But a word of warning - you have to put away your reality gauge and enter knowing that this is total fiction with some implausible acts and situations (treat it like a Willis or Cruise film).

    This one's about second chances as the h/h had been engaged briefly 10 years previously but a heartbreak had torn them apart. Now Dianna needs Sam again and he's right there but neither want to get their heart's broken again and try to resist the sexual chemistry that's pulling them together but, (as we all know and eagerly wait for) eventually it snaps. Tense, thrilling plot about revenge, kidnapping, human endurance and forgiveness not only for the lovers but for family members too as terror for one another brings some home truths and insight.

    There was romance and sex scenes but they weren't hot - just loving passionate moments, and even though I felt this was a more diluted listen than the 1st one, I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment. Although there were slight references to something that happen in the previous book this could easily have been a stand alone listen.

    Worth a credit? Well, if you're a romance lover and can overlook the implausible to get to the happily ever afters then press the Add To Cart button now.

    "Not as good as the others in the series..."

    While the narration is as good as the rest of the stories in the series, this story spends too much time going over and over the same remunerations. I skipped a lot of it beginning with the eighth chapter. Don't know if it's worth the credit. Looking forward to the next one.

    "Another "Hot" novel from Bella!!!"
    Where does Hot as Sin: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top along with Bella's Sullivan Series!


    Which character – as performed by Eva Kaminsky – was your favorite?

    Sam.... Eva does such a good job with her sexy male voice. Definitely reminded me of a "hot" fire fighter.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Sam and Dianna finally realize their true feelings for each other!


    Any additional comments?

    As always... another great book by Bella Andre! Just love her writing!

    "Ok for light reading"

    These hotshot books don't have a lot of depth but they are ok when you just want a light romance with the predictable HEA. I think I liked the first one better. The female character had more spice but again there is nothing wrong with this one

    What I especially enjoyed from this novel....it was a well written and steamy romantic with some suspense with this firefighter Sam MacKenzie and television host Dianna Kelley along with her out of control sister April. This author does a very good job at bringing this story it all out to the readers. Will Dianna except this second chance at love in this fiery relationship? What will happen to Dianna's sister April? I loved how this author was able to give the reader a story with an interesting plot that does come together in the end and definitely will keep your attention till the end. You will be definitely left saying wow in the end.

    "Great Story - As Real As It Gets"
    What did you like best about this story?










































    .
    The 2nd in the series was SO good. It continued in feeling like a realistic story. I know nothing about firefighters and/or hotshots besides what little I've read here, so I cannot critique the authenticity of that portion. However, this story was not so much about the profession as it was about Dianna and Sam's relationship.

    The storyline was really believable and hooked me right from the beginning. I did listen to this all in one setting and I am on to book number three.

    Of course, while feeling 'real' things like this happen to less than 1% of us in the real world but it is fiction and fantasy and I really enjoyed it.

    The narrator was really good though a bit slow. I have a tendency to want to speed up the books which I did with this one (only a little 1.25X DMT) The soothing voices of this narrator would have eased me into sleep. Because the story was so intriguing I wanted to listen to it all in one setting.

    Notes: Descriptions of sex & strong language


    Credit worthy/$: Absolutely, but as I've noted before, I'm pretty sure I collected these books through sales over a year, they are reasonably priced. I am a credit cheapskate so it has to be a really long book by someone I really know well to use one. I would save my credit for a more expensive book.


    Thank you for reading my review, if you find that it was helpful please select yes directly below this line.

    "Great Story"

    This is the first book I've listened to by Bella Andre. I really enjoyed it. I was a little weary because of the publishers introduction. Too many romances start on the premise of a lost love come back around a decade later. It's been done to death. However, it really worked here. The narration was excellent.
    The characters are believable and likeable.
    I bought it on the 2 books for one credit offer, so yes it was worth the credit.
