It takes a special kind of hero to be a smoke jumper. To take the greatest risks. To live or die in the raging heat of the moment. And it takes a special kind of woman to love him. . .

Where There's Smoke. . .

For Jack Donovan, smoke jumping is a way of life. He lives for the adrenaline rush--the thrill of flying over the burning California hills, the intensity of diving straight into the inferno, the glory of taming the forces of nature. Love is a distant ember compared to the feeling he gets fighting fires--until an emergency call from his hometown brings him face to face with the one woman he can't forget. . .

There's Fire

Lily never got over the handsome rogue who once kissed her senseless--and then left. She vowed she was done with love-'em-and-leave-'em men and small town life. Until a series of malicious fires set by a stalker has her running home to hide. Now, their summer is heating up as Jack fights to save her from the stalker's fiery threats and to convince her to give the passion between them a second chance.

Burning Up
Average rating

Decent attempt
June 1st, 2013
This was a pretty good story on the surface but it was hard to concentrate on it with all the inconsistencies. First the development of the love interest was a little confusing. He left town after kissing the girl once one night, and now when he is back 10 years later she acts like he left her high and dry after making promises or knocking her up or something. It was a kiss- that was it. Not a reason to hold a 10 year grudge. Next, the draw to each other was not well laid out. Why did they pine for each other for so long? Then when she decides to give up the grudge the reason is not explained and an "I love you" comes out of left field. Also, the timeframe is poorly laid out. It seems the whole story took place over a week or 2 so therefore the main characters went from "I missed you" to "I hate you" to "I wanna sleep with you" to "I love you, marry me" with no real idea of how they got to those points so quickly. The story itself was also a bit too drawn out in the beginning and middle and raced through the climax at the end in just a handful of pages. The first part was also pretty redundant, with the same feelings, sentiments and arguments repeated over and over. Descriptive adjectives were also a little off. For example, it seemed that every sentence out of Jack's mouth was "growled" and he never walked anywhere he "stalked" and in a lot of instances those words didn't fit with the current action or dialogue. But again the story line itself was good and decently engaging, it just would have benefitted from a few more read-throughs and better editing.
