    Another Scorcher

    Ride the Fire by Jo Davis is much anticipated story of Captain Sean Tanner. It was well worth the wait.

    Fire Captain Sean Tanner is finally on the road back after the tragic death of his family and his battle with alcohol. He is determined to stay clean and regain the trust of his coworkers. One fellow firefighter has Sean seeing her in a whole new light. Eve was always Sean's strongest supporter but he realizes just how beautiful and giving she can be.

    Fellow firefighter Eve Marshall has had a tough road to follow in the department. Being the lone female has had its challenges but her team mates have proven over and over that they have her back. Eve tried to keep her feelings for Sean to herself but now it seems he is feeling the same thing she has been.

    As they start to explore this new side of their friendship someone lets it be know that Sean's family tragedy may not have been an accident. The danger escalates to a level that neither thought could exists.

    Will the authorities be able to find out who has targeted Sean and those that he loves before someone else is hurt?

    Ride the Fire is an powerful and emotional read. You feel Sean's deep pain and his struggles to overcome his addictions. Sean and Eve's relationship is deeply moving as well as tantalizingly sexy. I would highly recommend this book as well as the other books in the Firefighters Of Station Five series.

    Ride the Fire is the 5th in the Firefighters of Station Five series

    Captain Sean Tanner has been fighting more demons than fires in the last two years since he watched his family die in a fiery accident, unfortunately the demons are winning. The only thing keeping him sane is his job and his family of firefighters of station five and one in particular who's keeping him up at night for more reasons than he'd like to admit. Eve Marshall has been in love with Sean since before the accident that took his family, she didn't know what to do with those feelings then and she sure doesn't know what to do with them now. But someone sinister is out there harassing Sean and threatening to undo all the steps he's taken to reclaim his life and Eve will do anything to help keep him on the right path even at the cost of a broken heart. But there's more at steak than broken hearts, will Sean and Eve have what it takes to "Ride the Fire".
    Jo Davis has created a series of larger than life men and women who risk their lives everyday on and off the job. She's done it with dialogue that presents the reader with vivid imagery as she takes us through the rough and ready lives of these characters. She does it with characters that are extraordinarily ordinary and over the top when it comes to sexuality and sensuality. Her hero and heroine for this novel are both firefighters have known each other for years and have held a candle for each other, so she brings familiarity into the romance which creates and at the same time solves many problems. Eve and Sean are both extremely in need of their Happy Ever After, they just need to stay alive to accomplish it. Her love scenes are as hot as any fire and as dangerous as any backdraft and at the same time as endearing as any romance you've ever read.
    If you haven't made a visit to the crew at station five, don't worry you'll get enough background information to have this novel stand on it's own, but I would recommend reading the entire series in order because there's a lot of history that you'll miss if you don't. If you like romance on the sizzle burner, you've come to the right read because this one will blow your socks off.

    The entertaining fifth Firefighters of Station Five (see Line of Fire) is an exciting tale

    The car crash might as well have killed Fire Department Captain Sean Tanner as he has never recovered from the deaths of his wife Blair and their teenage son and six years old daughter. He knows Blair's last words to him turned out prophetically true when she told him to go to hell for choosing his firefighting team over his son. To dull the pain of living in hell, he has become an alcoholic. Recently he took the first steps back when he realized he needed help and so Sean went into rehab.

    Sean has returned to work, which pleases his team as he is considered a great leader. Sean and Eve Marshall begin to look deeper into their attraction for one another until Sean learns the awful truth about his family's death. Instead of a horrific accident, his closest friend at one time killed them. Sean vows vengeance against this predator.

    The entertaining fifth Firefighters of Station Five (see Line of Fire) is an exciting tale that moves forward various firefighter subplots, but the focus is on the Captain who has a second chance at life and love; although he feels he does not deserve the former and detests the latter. Fast-paced, the protagonists carry plenty of psychological baggage that they must overcome if they are to cement their relationship as love and heated sex may not be enough. Although the villain's wrath and thirst for vengeance that matches that of his former best friend never comes across as genuine, readers will enjoy Sean's return to the living and loving; if he can keep his Eve safe from a psychopath.

    GREAT

    THIS BOOK IS THE BEST ONE OF ALL- THIS STORY LINE WAS THE MOST BELIEVEABLE ONE OF ALL. THE SADNESS AT THE CEMETARY WAS HEARTBREAKING. THEN TO REALIZE HIS WIFE WAS CHEATING. SHAME SHAME WE KNOW HER NAME. THE POOR KIDS. I AM GLAD THAT HE WAS FINALLY ABLE TO FIND HAPPINESS AGAIN.

    I enloy Jo Davis books. The hero in Ride the Fire is probably my least favorite of her characters. I didn't like Sean Tanner. I developed a dislike for him in Book 2 - Under Fire for the way he treated Zack. I never got over my dislike and could develop any empathy for him. It's hard to enjoy a book when you dislike the hero.

    a great ending to a great series. this book is not has steamy as the other four, but its WELL worth reading. Especially if you want to have a conclusion to the other characters. dont get me wrong, Capt Tanner and Eve sizzle with the romance and bedroom but its not the peel the paint off the wall as the other 4. A must must read though. I look forward to reading more for Jo Davis, this was my first series and will not be my last

    5 Stars AGAIN

    This is the 5th book in the Station 5 series and Jo Davis has done it again. I was pulled in to Sean's story long before his book was written and I wasn't disappointed. Sean had to overcome so much heartache and addiction that it I wasn't sure he would ever get his happily-ever-after. The family that "Ride The Fire" portrays the firefighters is unparalleled blood or not, this crew took care of each other. Eve is a strong woman that found her man long before he was available to her, but her patience and heart are rewarded. The villain wasn't expected for me, but I enjoyed the flashbacks to Sean's military days.
