Firefighter paramedic Mallory "Ice" James commands a crew of smokejumpers - twenty women and men who eat together, sleep together, and parachute into the face of raging forest fires together - and she has thirty days to whip the rookies into shape. Discipline and teamwork mean the difference between life and death on the line, and she's earned her reputation as cool and controlled in the face of danger.
Mallory isn't happy when "Hotshot" Jac Russo shows up unannounced for boot camp along with a reputation for being trouble. Jac is none too pleased about her cold reception, even if the new boss is drop-dead gorgeous and hotter than the blazes they're supposed to be dousing. Mallory and Jac may not like each other much, but lust isn't something either can control - and they soon discover ice burns as fiercely as flame.
So yes, I loved this book. One main reason, I am a former CDF Smoke Jumper stationed in Humbolk County California. I had a ball buster Like Mal. in Basic , but she was also the one who ran with me when I felt like quitting. I remember my very first blister from using the Pulaski with out gloves lol.
I also remember how I felt when I had lost a team member, and I had to be lifted of a deadly hill side during one of the worst fires Berkley California ever had. I could never return due to my injuries. I related to the guilt and pain she went through.
Now, the constant anger in Mal's voice and the craziness of her character was a bit much. it did bother me some. Jack had a lot going on as well. I wish the would of had more of a heart to heart. it would of solved alot between them.
I enjoyed the other sub characters as well. Sarah was a surprise, and I think she could of been developed a bit more as well.
The Narrator .. well I feel she did an ok job. Abby Craden probably could of brought out Jack better.
however all in all a great book for anyone who loves crazy romance.

The characters had potential. Was a little too harlequin romance and cheesy for me. And the narration matched it. Seemed they had more depth than the dialogue they were given.

Would you try another book from Radclyffe and/or Stella Bloom?
I have read most of Radclyffe's books and the Justice and Honor series are a wonderful mix of suspenseful plot and romance etc. But this one is inane, with the plot secondary to the attraction between the two main protagonists. The character development is shallow and implausible and the breathless narration helps little. A potentially great setting that Radclyffe failed to exploit in this one.
Has Firestorm turned you off from other books in this genre?

Radclyffe’s first responders Series is quite good. Stories interesting as the reader gets a peek into unknown aspects of life.
The performance is quite poor. Bloom is good to transmit scenes where fear, stress or rush are present but really bad at dealing with introspection and scenes with a strong emotional content: Love declarations, sex, etc.
As I had read the story I was able to put up with the poor performance.
easily my fave of the series.
great story. i loved the longing and forbidden love
Another great read by Radclyffe. You Always know you're getting a good story From her.
I laughed ... I got frustrated ... I was on edge. I wish there was a follow up book about Jack and Mallory, I couldn't stop listening. I've owned the book for some time but haven't had a chance to read it. I just started using Audible and thought why not get the audio upgrade. Was definitely worth the perches.
The narration was horrible. I so often wanted her to calm down. She out drama in places that didn't need it. Her tone was less than attractive.
The story was classic Radclyffe! Always good to be taken away to the depths of Lesbian love when you need it. I can always count on Radclyffe to do that.
Was a great book though it took a little while to get interesting once it got going I could hardly get away.
The narrator really makes this series. You can't help but love all of the characters.

This is a very typical romance between to woman, both with conflicts to overcome. Iiked this story a lot as it fits the telling I like. I does not include a lot of drama, other then the internal conflicts of the characters, which I like. I loved the strong personalities of the two main female characters, and the romantic resolution. Im not one for erotica persay and prefer novels where this is limited and happens as part of the story line. This one fits the bill. It does not sound like a Radclyffe work as the narrator Stella approaches it differently, with a lot of excitement, She is a good narrator but can be over the top at times, I thought I might dislike the style but in the end it was an change and I enjoyed her narrations. One of the few stories I would listen to again.
