I couldn't put this down until I finished it in one reading. I knew that Jerry had more to him and this really put it out there. His growing love with the mysterious Sarah, or Brooke or whoever she is was a great plot for this one. I was so caught up with them and their journey and the corrupt officials at really high levels that it was an excellent story. Bringing back Emma, Craig, Vivian and Hawk was an excellent touch too. Great friends that work as one to help each other, wow, it's a must read. I am seriously waiting on "Heat 6", Ms. LaDew has done some great work here with this group of characters and I would recommend them to anyone. Each single one makes a good story in itself, but really, to appreciate the authors work and thought line, and appreciate the characters involvement with the story and each other, you should read each one in order. It's a wonderful journey.
What a refreshing setting this book has. I've liked Jerry since the book one, and was looking forward to his story, and this didn't disappoint. Jerry is fun, easy going guy. And when Sara is in trouble, Jerry tries his best to save her, rescue her, even though Jerry feels he's way over his head with the mission. Without giving away anything on the plot, that is full of surprises, twists and turns, the man hunt in the story is grueling. The suspense, tension of the danger is constant, and will keep you absorbed in the story. The attraction, love, Sara and Jerry have for each other is so sweet and endearing. The way Jerry fights for their relationship made me want to cheer. The story is interesting, and like said, with so many new aspects in it from chapter to chapter, it is hard to say much, without giving something away and spoiling the element of surprise. But this whole series is something that has just gotten better by each book, and I can warmly recommend it to all fans of romantic suspense! Four spoons for this story and the whole series!!

Another great book by Lisa Ladew! I love this series. I cannot wait to start book 6. This might be my favorite of the series so far. I was hesitant to read Jerry's love story. While I adored Jerry in the previous books, I felt more of a brotherish love for him. I didn't know how I would respond to reading the steamy scenes with him in them. And admittingly they did not do as much for me as the previous book, I still enjoyed the book. Sara was a badass. Pure and simple. Loved her.
I'm still having a hard time believing that this book was written by the same author as 1 & 2. This was also a great read (like #3). I was completely shocked by Sara. Talk about best kept secrets..oh my! I absolutely did not see any of that coming. I seriously was on the edge of my seat more than 1/2 of this book. The tear. Her tear got me. Something about it made her not who she thought she was. The journey was crazy.
I just finished reading the fifth installment in this series and all I can say is Wow! Thanks Lisa Ladew for another great tale of suspense, intrigue and just enough romance to keep all the senses enthralled.
It really seems with each new twist in the series, the author is really just building an epic story line that would make an awesome movie. ( of course the movies never live up to the books though ).
Can't wait til next month when she is expected to release the 6th book in the series - it looks to be just as exciting and full of intrigue, drama and suspense.
Holy smokes! I love this series so much! I swear it just keeps getting better and better with each book. Who knew people could be so evil. And I loved how the bad were caught this time, it was so awesome. So now I am on to the next book to see what happens with the triplet. See ya.
I have read all five books"EDGE OF HEAT" and enjoyed everyone. Each book makes you want to read the next. I can hardly wait until the sixth one comes out in September. I love the characters and the way the story lines weave together. If you like stories ABOU firefighters, M.T.s and FBI agents, I highly recommend these books.
