The book tells the story of fire fighter Dade and camp cook, who actually can’t cook, Sarah Jo. Sarah Jo is on the run and has trouble trusting Dade and confiding in him. When her past catches up, however, she has no choice but to ask (well.. holler actually) for his help.
I really liked this book. The characters were great. Dade came across as a sexy dependable hero and Sarah Jo was an interesting independent woman. She was not a standard heroine, but a vibrant colourful woman. I like it when a woman shows character, especially when the male character is an alpha. The sexual tension between the two main characters felt real and I liked the plot. It was a good story.
The world of the fire fighters and the camp was well depicted. I could imagine what it looked like though there were no lengthy descriptions.
It wasn’t a long read, but it felt exactly right. The fact that Dade and Sarah Jo already knew each other and were attracted to each other when the book starts made their love story credible.
Therefore, I advise you to read this book.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Can't get my pen name in, which is JannP

Hot Zone by Anne Marsh is the second book in her Hotshots series.
Dade Johnson is second in command on the Hotshots team and enjoys a solitary life. So when a new camp cook strolls in he can't understand why his hormones won't stay under control. There's just something about Sarah Jo that he can't ignore. The closer he gets the more obvious it becomes she's hiding something.
Sara Jo is on the run and in hiding but despite that, she can't help but be hot, madly in lust with one of the guys in camp. Dade Johnson is the hottest guy in camp and she's not going to be able to keep her hands off him, let alone worry about her secret catching up with her.
Longer than the first book but still in the realm of novella length, this is a fast-paced, cram packed tale of lust, love, secrets and betrayal.

I Also Recommend:
4.5 Star Review – Reburn & Hot Zone
I recommend these books.
I enjoyed these books by Anne. These book include passion, laughs, suspense, heartache, and pain.
REBURN (Hot Shots #1)
Sam is trying to fight a fire but has to find a woman who is hunting down a terrorist. When he finds Olivia he must get them out of the forest without the fire killing them. Olivia just wants to find her man. But what happens when the hunted becomes the hunter. Will they make it out of the woods alive? Or will the hunter or the fire get them first?
HOT ZONE (Hot Shots #2)
Sarah must kiss the first man that walks into the camp. Of course who walks in but Dade the one man that she should not have. Sarah is running from her past. She is hiding in this camp and will move on soon. Hopefully before her past catches up with her. Dade is determined to protect Sarah from her past.
Dade believes Sarah is too young for him. She does not belong in this camp. She is not a good cook so he can't figure out what she is doing there. When Sarah's past catches up will Dade be around to save her? Will he even want to?
Both books contain strong alpha males and stubborn women. They battle through the book but in the end come together as better people. The men are both compassionate and sweet at times but are fiercely protective. You also learn a little about the firefighters that these men fight with. Very good read. Can't wait for the next book from Anne.

Sara Jo's running from her past and sexy, Hotshot, Dade Johnson, wants to protect her. He just doesn't know what he'd be protecting her from.
Hotshots are specially trained fire crews that work for the U.S. Forest Service. Anne Marsh continues her Hotshots series with another fabulous book and these men are smokin' hot! Even though it seemed like their relationship started too fast, we have to realize that we did not come in at the beginning. When the story started, Dade and Sara Jo were already acquainted and there was an attraction between them. There was some dangerous sparks flying in that RV. I truly enjoyed this book even though I wish it were longer. I'm definitely keeping a close eye on this author and her sexy alpha fire fighters.

Sarah Jo is on the run and hiding out working as a camp cook for fireman. She has a crooked cop who is also her ex after her and she wants to stay out of sight. She isn't looking for love or lust just safety. When she is couched into giving a kiss to fireman Dade she isn't prepare for what she started. Dade has had his eye on Sarah Jo for a while. She isn't like the other cooks and he can tell she is hiding something. The two quickly come together after their kiss and the passion between them explodes. When the crazy ex finds Sarah Jo Dade has to see who he believes a man of the law or the woman with his heart.
Sarah Jo is at times to me funny. She wears clothes that don't really fit the area and likes to joke with the other cooks. She is scared and has been hurt before but doesn't give up on love. Sometimes I did wonder if she would just run. Dade is a hello sexy fireman. He really has never took down roots and lived in one spot. I will say in one scene he was on a motorcycle and that just made him so much hotter. He is a very loving man and protects those he cares about.
This is another short quick read but very hot. I love Dade and Sarah Jo from the start and really connected with both of them. There is a great plot as it has a crooked cop and a woman on the run. Sarah Jo runs from him but I will say she shows some backbone and spirit in the end. I also really enjoyed all the other fireman and cooks who stand up for her . Fireman really are like a big family and this book really shows you how much they can be one. The steamy scenes between Dane and Sarah Jo are wonderful and you can see while they may not have been around each other a long time they really belong together. I am really liking both books I have read in this series and my only complaint is I wish they were longer just because for me they are good and I want more.

FIGHTING FIRE IS HIS NATURE
To Dade Johnson, fire is a danger he can handle. But the blaze he feels from the moment he lays eyes—and hands, and mouth—on Sarah Jo is too hot to handle. Something about the free-spirited camp cook has him throwing caution to the wind. Little does the hotshots’ second-in-command know he’s cozying up with a suspected arsonist...
SHE CAN’T HELP FANNING THE FLAMES
Sarah Jo knows she should steer clear of Dade. A bona fide hero who battles wildland fires every day deserves better than a woman on the run. But their five-alarm attraction has Sarah Jo too weak in the knees to resist playing with fire—until her past catches up with her. Soon, she’ll have to choose between surrendering her secrets—or taking them both down in flames..
With every romantic suspense book that I read written by author Anne Marsh it is impressed upon me how much fun the stories are to connect with. Both the main and secondary characters leap out of the pages and worm their way into your affections quickly, the plots that center around the mystery and danger as well as the firefighters themselves never fails to intrigue the reader as just enough information is given to whet your appetite for more.
The attraction between Dade and Sarah Jo was hinted at at the beginning of the story, the chemistry that the two find between themselves after sharing a kiss that was the result of a dare soon burns hotter than the flames from the wildfires popping up over the countryside!
The fact that this was a very quick short read did not in any way detract from it’s intensity or it’s appeal to those who love the pairing of Alpha male lead characters with unconventional females whose independent spirit matches that of her chosen partner.
Even though this is only a novella the story of how Dade and Sarah Jo become a couple is a marvelous addition to the series, really enjoy the companion books to the Smoke Jumpers and looking forward to more sizzling tales from the author. In comparison to the full length books written by the author this shorter glimpse into the world of these hardworking men and women never falls short but rather sets the stage for future works to come.

My rating: 4 of 5 ¿¿
She is only 300 miles from where her trouble started, but Sarah Jo feels pretty safe in the fire camp near Strong, California, where she had landed a job as cook in a diner. Not that she could cook really, but she was trying to make it look good and there was a lot of eye candy to keep her occupied. In particular Dade, second in command at the camp, was a big hunk of a man. But looking was all she would do, because men were definitely off the menu for her.
Walking into the diner after a jump seemed to brighten smoke jumper, Dade Johnson's days even more than normal. He had a feeling it had something to do with the arrival of one Sarah Jo at the diner. Couldn't cook to save her life, but she tried with gusto and had looks and attitude that put a smile on his face. So when he walks into the diner frustrated to have been called off a fire for a forced break, he doesn't hesitate to respond in kind when Sarah Jo suddenly plasters herself against him and kisses the living day lights out of him.
She took the dare and kissed him, but Sarah Jo hadn't expected him to kiss her back like that! nor had she expected to lose all sense of where she was while he was doing it. Determined to keep trouble from finding her in the camp, she tries to keep her distance from Dade, but he has had one taste and apparently that is not enough. Now that the sparks have flared, there is no holding back the fire.....
A hot little number!!!!
As always with Anne Marsh books action and steamy romance is abundantly present. The story is fairly short and fast-paced, but despite that we still get a decent amount of necessary backstory and context.
Sarah Jo is a plucky and slightly unconventional woman hiding from an ex who has a long reach and it makes her a bit mistrusting of men in general, but those in any kind of uniform or position of authority in particular. She isn't so willing to share her troubles after having the tables turned on her the first time she tried doing that. Keeping her secrets to herself seems safest, except Dade seems to catch on to things easier than most.
Never needing more than a place to put his head at night, a good meal in his stomach and spending his days doing what he loves, fighting fire, Dade's needs aren't that complicated. So he is a bit surprised to find himself feeling protecting and territorial when it comes to Sarah Jo. She is making him want things he had never considered himself in the market for. Always a dominant man, he even felt quite comfortable playing on equal footing and respecting her boundaries.
The heat is on in this book for sure! Once these two have had a taste of each other, they can't seem to get enough. Playing it off as temporary physical release seems to be the easier label to give it, but both can sense that there is more bubbling under the surface.
Great speed and flow in the story, never a moment's rest for the reader. Anne has the ability to compact a complete story into a limited number of pages. Of course the development of events is therefore faster than might commonly occur, but that is to be expected.
¿Fast, fiery, roaring and racy!!¿
