Overview

Jason Mondy's world is unraveling.

He may be the town hero, but his job is in chaos,
his girlfriend has left him and his nightmares keep him from sleeping.
Even just a simple trip home to find some rest leads his adoptive mother to share a secret she's kept for over twenty-six years . . .

Jason has a brother he doesn't remember existed.

He doesn't remember his life before he was adopted at age seven.
Now the foundation on which he built his world is crumbling.
The life he doesn't remember is lost somewhere and his brother left behind.

Armed with only this stunning new piece of information,
Jason embarks on a quest to find the truths buried deep in his past.
As he searches, one by one the pieces of his life fall like dominoes.
And the more he uncovers, the more everything he thought he knew about himself and his past begins to turn to ash.

His truth isn't true at all . . .

Ok this one has it all! Action, Romance, and Mystery all packed in a book that is just under 400 pages long! What more could you ask for? Well im here to tell you that this one you really cant ask for much. Well other than PLEASE DONT END! I loved it! It was fast paced and a great story!

With a title like this, you know someone will rise from the ashes. An interesting story about firefighters just doing a job until firefighter Jason learns a secret. As Jason does his oh-so-dangerous job, loses and gains girlfriends, loses and gains family, he tracks that secret. The suspense subtly gets tighter until the secret is exposed and everyone has to come to terms with it. Some chapters are written so you see what Jason sees as he moves through the day and other chapters see the station house, which is initially disconcerting. The author does a good job of yanking you along on the roller coaster. You care about Jason and the other firefighters and become intrigued with the secret. Really strong writing and an exceptional story. The ending made me cry. Received free copy for review.

Excellent book.  Highly recommend.  Well written, well developed characters and plot.  Author relies on his writing skills... which are excellent... rather than sex and violence to create the story.  I'll surely be looking for more books by A.J. Scudiere.

Jason is a firefighter. After a day where he rescues two boys from a fire, he comes home and finds his girlfriend left him and took everything. He decides to go see his mother and learns that the fire that in the fire that killed his birth mother, he had a brother that was rescued too. Jason doesn’t remember anything about the fire or before that. So, he goes on the hunt to find his missing brother. I loved all the research that went into firefighters. This book is so realistic that you can easily find yourself right there with Jason. I liked Jason. You felt for him when his girlfriend left yet at other times you just want to pound his thick skull in. The more I read, the more I liked him and couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. This is another great book my AJ Scudiere. I loved her other books and can’t wait for the next one to come out. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Such an easy-to-read book. The characters are realistic and flawed (in a good way), exactly the way that I like them. The story is engaging and has some nice twists that I didn't expect. I recommend this book for anyone who likes mysteries (and maybe firefighters).

I really enjoyed this book. I liked getting to see the first person experience of the main character, Jason, as well as the third person view of everyone in the fire house. The story kept me turning pages and I loved the twists. The author did a lot of research and the true-to-life details really brought the story to life. I think this would be a great book for book clubs. How do you deal with your future when your past isn't what you thought it was?
