    4.5 Stars

    The series just keeps getting better. I liked this book a lot.

    Even though this book is part of a series, each book stands alone – no cliffhanger.

    This is Evan’s book and it is hot. Evan is a smoke jumper and he and his brothers own a company that fights wild fires during the summer. Faye Duncan is the ex-wife of one of Evan’s former military buddies. Her ex called Evan and asked him to keep an eye on her when he found out she was heading toward the town where Evan lives.

    Faye nearly got caught in a brush fire on her way into Strong. She’s a photographer who will be taking pictures in town to document the rebuilding of the old firehouse. She snaps pictures of the fire she nearly got caught in and unknowingly photographed the arsonist who started the fire.

    This story is full of hot sexy times as well as mystery and suspense. If you like reading about hot, sexy fireman and their families you should really enjoy this book.

    I was not compensated in any way (no ARC received) for this review.

    This is the second book in the Smoke Jumpers series and the first one that I read from Anne Marsh.
    Evan is my kind of hero, silent, sensuous and hot, all a girl could ask for.
    Faye is my kind of woman ... adventurous and strong, taking in her desires and accepting that we
    all have to live a little, second chances are just around the corner and all we have to do is take them.
    The story revolves around Evan Donovan, smoke jumper and Faye Duncan a photographer,
    that after her divorce decides to buy the car of her dreams and hit the road, find some fun and as I said live a little.
    But between a call from a war friend to check up on his ex wife and an arsonist on the loose, Evan meets the woman
    that will steal his heart and own him for a lifetime.
    Faye Duncan has always been a good girl but now she feels that her life is in a crossroad and now is the time to live
    and risk on a new path. What she wasn't expecting was to find Evan and love again.
    Can she risk her heart again and trust this smoking hot, brooding and sexy smoke jumper ...
    I'm going to start by the cover. For all to see is this hot hot burning cover that was so well chosen and fits perfectly in this story. Loved it !
    I liked the flow of the words, the relationship between the characters and the glimpses of other connections between the the other
    The story was balanced between the awakening of Evan and Faye to each other, the search for the arsonist and the hot hot encounters
    between the main characters.
    If you like a good exciting romance, filled with sexy characters and some suspense this is the book for you and could be read as a
    stand alone.

    Faye Duncan is a photo journalist. She has just finalized her divorce, brought a corvette and took an assignment to shoot Smoke Jumpers in a remote town. Running into a brush fire on the way to town, Faye inadvertently witnesses an arsonist.

    Evan Donovan is a Smoke Jumper and when his ex-military buddy asks him to check up on his ex-wife he never expected the explosive chemistry he finds with Faye. Neither, Faye or Evan expected or was even looking for a relationship but the attraction is very mutual. 

    Things heat up between Faye and Evan, but she doesn’t know her ex has contacted Evan. She also didn’t realize the danger she might be in because she’s the only one to see the arsonist. Can Faye get over her issues of her divorce and see what is in front of her? What will she do when she realizes the person behind her issues enlisted Evan for his help?

    This was an enjoyable story with a very interesting cast. I found the mystery, suspense and romance made Slow Burn a completely delightful read.

    This copy of Slow Burn was given to me by Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book was published March 26, 2013.

    Faye Duncan is free!  Her divorce is finalized.  She is in her shiny corvette and headed to Strong, CA to photograph fires and fire fighters for a magazine shoot.
    Firefighters run toward a fire when normal people run away from it.  That’s what makes them heroes.  Evan Donovan is a smoke jumper.  That means he jumps from a plane into a fire.  That would him a crazy hero but he is all about safety. 
    When Evan & Faye meet things start to smoke and safety is for everything but the heart.
    This is the second in a series revolving around the Donovan brothers and the smoke jumpers but can be read stand alone.  Evan is the “big guy” with a heart of gold.  He is dedicated to the job.  He doesn’t have the social skills that his brothers do so he is sweetly out of his depth when he finds himself falling for Faye.  He makes this story worth reading.
