He's a hotshot firefighter addicted to risk. She's the sultry beauty he never saw coming....
Maya Jackson doesn't sleep with strangers. Until the night grief sent her to the nearest bar and into the arms of the most explosive lover she's ever had. Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake. Now her number one suspect in a string of deadly wildfires.
Risking his life on a daily basis is what gets Logan up in the morning. As the leader of the elite Tahoe Pines Hotshot Crew, he won't back down from a blaze - or from beautiful, lethal Maya Jackson. She may have seduced him with her tears and her passion, but it'll be a cold day in hell before Logan lets down his guard again. But when Maya's life is threatened, his natural-born-hero instincts kick in, and Logan vows to protect the woman sworn to bring him down. And as desire reignites, nothing - not the killer fire nor the killer hot on their trail - can douse the flames.

Gripping start to a brand new series centred around the sexy rugged (and, of course, handsome) elite Firemen called Hotshots.
This explosive story has forest fires, murder, intense suspense, thrills, passion and sex as the H/H try to find out who the arsonist is that is responsible for all the fires and deaths that are slowly mounting up - and, from one being a suspect, they soon both become the number one targets. There are a mixture of characters some of whom are thrown in as suspects to keep you guessing and eliminating just who the likely person is (I didn't guess right).
My only very slight grievance was the romance between the H/H was hot yes, and it just happened from day 1 as the sparks of their sexual chemistry led to an instant passionate inferno but, because there was no embers to the romance, by day 3 I felt a little bit robbed of the usual enticing delicious build-up towards the inevitable 'combustion' (but that's just me wanting it all I guess) and it didn't detract from the main exciting story.
It also gives you a good insight into the actual work, experiences and pressures these Teams have when they fight these fierce wildfires - their lives can so easily be lost but their skilled efforts make all the difference.
Worth a credit? Yes a good entertaining romance/thriller, even if there were a few 'as if's' in the storyline and I'm looking forward to book 2 Hot As Sin (Sam's story) and all the others in the series, after all there are 20 hunky red bloodied Firefighters in each Team.
The premise for the book was good - however, the writing came across as amateurish. The main character was whiny and unprofessional. Constantly putting herself in the path of danger - I intensely dislike "too stupid to live" characters. Her motivations for these "too stupid to live moments" were very unbelievable and....stupid.
I've already forgotten their names...that boring....
I love books, it's my great escape.
Bella Andre, has done it again. This one is a hit with me. This story starts out smoking hot and I don't mean the heat from the fires. This story also develops into somewhat of a surprise for me. I expected a great romance, but what I did not expect was suspense or a crazy killer on the loose. I could not put this one down.
Maya Jackson is the female lead who is immediately attracted to the hot sexy Logan Cain. These two have a brief encounter and six months later, they meet again and sparks really start to fly. It was really fun seeing the physical attraction between Maya and Logan turn into to something deeper. I am about the listen to this one again, it’s that good!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Well it has a very interesting start. I’m thinking “Wow” this is going to be good. A little later into the book my mind starts to wander. That’s not a good sign for me. A few more hours and I’ve already rewound this book three times to try to catch up from where I’ve lost track due to boredom.
Now we get to the last 2 ½ hours of the book and they get back into the sexual situations of the book. I wish I could say this is better, but the almost sex at the beginning of the book is hotter. I will admit the one good thing is I do not know who the arsonist is, but at this point who cares? I’d much rather sit through a steamy, hot, BDSM, predictable who-done-it than this.
This is a big NO. In my opinion this is not worth my credit. It is not worth buying it on sale. I just feel like I’ve wasted my credit and my time (and I did double the narration later in the book to try to get through it!!).
I have mixed feelings about this book. I was supremely annoyed by the first 2 1/2 hours as the heroine consistently (and repetitively) questioned her belief in the hero due to her attraction to him. Once she came to the conclusion that he was trust worthy, albeit a strange revelation without a believable cause, the book finally started to get interesting.
As the book progressed, it moved from steamy to action packed and back over and over again. The story happens over a weekend so the timeline felt extremely unbelievable.
Is it worth the time and credit? I'd give this a hesitant yes. If you like other books by Bella Andre, then this is another good addition to your library. For me however, it's not on my list to re-listening to it. When I'm not reading a sci-fi or paranormal book, I like realistic and this story wasn't believable enough for me.
This story has a good concept however it isn't technically factual in the least. No way is an investigator going to let their lead suspect collect evidence nor are they going to drop off "samples" with the wife of the CSI. No chain of custody at all and the samples could easily be tampered with. That leaves a lack of credibility to the story. A little research into correct procedures would go a long way in supporting the story plot.
I usually like the narrator however in this book she seems to have a very breathy tonal quality.
I want to meet just one of the Hot Shot Firefighter, Bella Andre sure knows how to bring romance I want more more more
sizzling, spitting, steaming
Logan's voice is very convincing and makes him what he is: a testosterone-filled man - quite impressive considering the female speaker....
I certainly laughed a couple of times

Bella has done it again! Maya and Logan just sizzle!
Logan - definitely could picture one sexy "Hot Shot" member.
Romance ? mystery? Having read or listened to several of the Sullivan Series by Bella Andre and enjoyed them, I decided to give this a try ... was I disappointed!
I was unable to finish the book and just skimped the last 10 chapters .. at the end I was not too sure if this was supposed to be romance or mystery ... it ended up being neither since the story was unable to keep my interest and it was only my perseverance that got me past the mid-mark of the story.
Unfortunately the narrator only helped to emphasize the poor storyline and the trite phrases.
