Overview

Kathryn Shay spent five years riding fire trucks with a large city fire department, eating in their firehouses and interviewing hundreds of America’s Bravest. Read the novellas that resulted from her intense relationship with firefighters!

“Shay’s powerful characters and emotional topics strike a chord with her readers and have earned her a well-deserved place among the top romance authors.” Waldenbooks Romantic Reader

IN TOO DEEP is the first novella in Shay’s powerful, new anthology, AMERICA’S BRAVEST. (All six novellas are available in a boxed set.)
In the Hidden Cove Fire Department, Gabe Malvaso is a favorite among firefighters. He’s tough, fair, has a good sense of humor and loves his work. But for eighteen months, he’s avoided a member of his crew, Firefighter Rachel Wellington, despite his knife-sharp attraction to her. She is also drawn to him but is equally determined to keep things professional between them--until they’re trapped in a basement for a day, thinking they’ll never be rescued. Then, their feelings for each other explode like the building around them.
Praise for Kathryn Shay’s Firefighter Books
“Readers will appreciate the powerfully written, tense emergency situations. The Malvaso clan and the other key characters seem genuine in and out of emergency scenarios. Kathryn Shay pays homage to rescue workers with this exhilarating tale.” Amazon Reader

“Powerhouse author Shay follows up After the Fire with another dramatic and dynamic thriller. Her complex and unforgettable characters breathe life into this truly intense novel.” Romantic Times Book Club

“Superb contemporary romance that grabs you in the prologue and won’t let go until you’ve read the final page. Bravo, Ms. Shay!” The Romance Readers Connection

“One of the best running collections on the market today.” Amazon Reader

As a former IAFF member, full time firefighter & a female I was really looking forward to reading this book. It is nothing but TRASH and only amplifies the stereotypes that I had to battle against my entire career. This is degrading to ALL firefighters as it depicts them as being focused on sex, each other and personal matters instead of the job they are trained to do. If I could rate this a ZERO, I would.

I stopped reading this book within the first chapter due to the language. What a shame I was really looking forward to reading this series it looked good.

I do not like bad language it's a sign of ignorance. Where is the romance in that, all I have to do is go outside for that. I want my fantasy to be clean. Deleting without reading

Never any real knowledge of the day to day grind. Real fitefighters dont strip when trapped. Made great people shallow! Pass

This book burnt more brain cells in one sitting than a lifetime of drugs could. This is why women have such a hard time in the fire service. I am thoroughly disgusted.

## This book was terrible. Language and sex don't bother me at all (to be honest, there was very little of both). However, I need chemistry between the hero and heroine which there wasn't. Neither one was very likeable and the writing style left a lot to be desired as did the ending. Don't waste your time!

As a firefighter, terrible book. Unless you want a random sex scene, I can not tell you how horrible this book is.

Its a slap in the face to women firefighters. How unprofessional the two main characters are! Coild have treated the chaaracters wih dignity, but chose instead to make the woman a simpering dolt and the man a pig. Nice job. You've managed to offend a lot of people

Dont stop at just this one! The entire series "Americas Bravest" was wonderful.

Great firefighter story, with a minor love story within. Well written. Kept your interest through the whole book. Somewhat addressed the problems of female firefighters too.

I enjoyed this book!! Too many people are making comments about the bad language and/or the realness of the characters compared to real life firefighters... hello people, this is a BOOK! It doesn't claim to be based upon true events. I've known plenty of firefighters to know that people are people, regardless of their career; and being attracted to someone else is what it is!

Thank you Kathryn Shay!!!!

but it just wasn't my kind of book. I don't believe that two people who were that dedicated to their careers would act this way, nor do I believe that a reporter would spend all her time blogging about the fire department. Better books out there.

The story line was good and I did enjoy it but I don't know if I would spend the money to read the sequels.

It was "okay." And I use "okay" because I've read the author's original America's Bravest firefighter series from 10 years ago, which was much, much better (in my opinion).

The good story line but too short and I thought it could go on for a better plot.

I enjoyed this book. It was a mix pleasure of fantasy and reality and it related to the struggles we face daily in this time.

A novella. Really hooked me. Hated how it ended wanted to see more of what happened. Guess I'll keep reading the series.

A 190 page free story and first in series of a firefighter squad leader and a female member of his team, and their attraction for each other. Rough language and descriptive sex scenes and fantasies. Some story in among the sexual attraction fantasy. Cliffhanger ending.
