Publisher's Summary

Ward - Susannah is the only woman who’s ever tested my control. Fighting fires is my life, but I can’t put out the fire between us. I tell myself I can keep my distance, tell myself it’s nothing more than a little fun. She fills every corner of my thoughts and kicks my control to the curb. Still, I have this. I can handle her. Then I find out she’s pregnant - with our baby. All bets are off. I’ll do anything to make her mine.  

Susannah - One night. Four years ago. We nearly set each other on fire, but I never thought I’d see Ward again. Then he comes walking back into my world - the epitome of tall, dark, and dangerous. I can’t withstand the heat. We take another chance, thinking we can burn this fire to ashes. But that’s only the beginning. It’s a mess - he’s my boss and now…. He’s about to be a father.

Hotshot Firefighters Burn Up This Story

Hot Mess is the fourth book in the Into The Fire series but can be read as a stand-alone book. Narrated in a dual point of view by Brooke Bloomingdale and Lance Greenfield who are both well cast for this couple and the support voices.

Ward and Susannah met four years ago when they were training together as hotshot firefighters. They had a super hot night together that they both remember fondly, but each moved on with their lives. Now Ward has accepted the position of superintendent of the hotshot team and he will soon move to Willow Brook, Alaska as Susannah's boss. For now he isn't her boss yet and their chemistry still burns as strong as ever. They decide to have one more night together but that will be all.

That one night leads to Susannah being pregnant. She has faught so hard and so long to be an equal in a male dominant job that she worries what the changes will mean for her. Ward wants to do right by Susannah and protect her both from harming herself or their baby on a risky job and from small town gossip. They have a lot of challenges to overcome and need to figure out if their hook up can be the start of more or if lust is all they have in common other than the baby.

it's just sex

I gotta say, if you're in the mood to just hear sex scene after sex scene then this is the book for you. if you skip all the sex, you maybe have an hour or two of plot.

If I’d wanted erotica I’d have ordered erotica

The story line could have been pretty good. The frequent explicit descriptions of sex scenes was way over done. There is a few minutes of the story the 15 minutes of sex. I was looking for a good story not raunch.

Entertaining

Nice series. I've enjoyed seeing the characters develop as each book brings more familiarity with the town of Willow Brook and how all the hot shots and their families interact.

Good story,

I enjoyed this book, for me, it's the best story in this series. At least, for the ones I've read so far.
The repetitive issue in writing is still there, but I liked the main characters and their story well enough to step past it.

Ward & savanna

I enjoyed the first two books in this series but this one is lacking. The male narrator voice sounds like a psycho stalker, which probably has a lot to do with my low rating. I would have liked to see a better story development with the relationship, the plot line had potential, but fell very short. Quite disappointed in this book

Ward and Savannah's story is finally up

Not much of a plot, just lots of sex that overshadows the story. I hate to give books a mediocre review but, while I enjoyed the series, this book did not keep my interest...was difficult to finish.

Very good book.

Once I started reading I could not put it down. Good thing I was on vacation or I might have been in big trouble!

Loved the story but

I loved the male narration , but the female read her part too fast. To me, was not like a normal conversation. It was a strain to listen to the book whenever she spoke. Just my opinion.

Can't listen to narrator

Couldn't listen to it the narrator's voice was annoying. Like listening to a kindy teacher.
