She can deal, so she resents it when the commander of her Montana smoke jumper unit sends her on a firefighter exchange program in Australia after her unit suffers a double tragedy. Hooking up with a sexy firefighter her first night Down Under improves Dare’s mood considerably until she realizes her hook up is now her station commander and he has a rule book as thick as her arm.
Lachlan Ryker did not make senior station officer as a Melbourne Metropolitan firefighter by the time he was thirty by acting impulsively, but when he meets the sexy, brash American in his favorite pub, his by-the-book, measured approach to life gets kicked to the curb. He and Dare ignite one night of smoldering passion he can’t forget. But before he can call for a second date, Dare strolls into his station newly assigned to him for three months. Lock knows he has to keep his hands to himself. He never breaks the rules. Dare, however, never heard a rule she didn’t want to shatter.Lock knows he has to keep his hands to himself.

Dare is a firefighter and worked as a smoke jumper in Montana. After a heavy loss her commander signed her up for an exchange program in Australia and there they don't know what to do with her. She's being pushed from one station to the next. When she meets Lachlan sparks fly and they have a hot night together. She doesn't know he'll be her new commander for the duration of her stay and that he sticks to the rules, which means he feels he shouldn't hook up with Dare again. However, their chemistry is going through the roof, will they be able to control themselves? Burning Both Ends is a sexy story about a man and a woman in uniform. I absolutely love reading about strong women who are brave enough to face their fears. Dare is sweet and confident. When she loves it's forever and she does it with her whole heart. I admired her loyalty and determination and my heart ached for the girl she used to be. That girl turned into an amazing fierce woman, which is another thing I liked about her story. Dare is a fantastic main character and that made me love Burning Both Ends from the start. Lachlan is a nice guy. He knows what it's like to lose people you love, which makes the bond between him and Dare extra strong. He does everything he can for his family and friends and he's always there to help someone when they need him. He's perfect for Dare. They're different, but they are both passionate people and that's something that immediately connects them. Their relationship is fiery and their bond is strong. I couldn't wait to discover if they'd find the happiness they both deserve after everything they went through and read their story in one sitting. Sinclair Jayne's writing flows easily and Burning Both Ends is a quick read. It's entertaining and hot, but there are also some deep emotional layers. I loved the way Sinclair Jayne describes the feelings and thought processes of her main characters. She writes about what being a firefighter is like in a fascinating way. Her main characters aren't being spared, but she approaches every problem with kindness honesty, which makes her story both raw and sympathetic at the same time. I loved Burning Both Ends and think it's a wonderful romantic read.
Burning Both Ends by Sinclair Jayne, book two in the Hot Aussie Knights series. Enjoyable book with a bit in spice in it and great storyline. Can't wait to read more books in this series.
This is yet another great book in the A Hot Aussie Knights Romances. There are flames a plenty and crazy entanglements abounding. Dare (Darrington) Knight is feisty and fun as she tangles with Lachlan Ryder as they fight attraction and flames of their own. But, she’s only in back in Australia from the States for three months on an exchange fire fighter program and has her own job as a smoke jumper waiting for her on her return. Lachlan has been there, done that, and been burned by love and marriage. Maybe, for him, she’ll be a hot respite from life. But, can he handle her and not let
Burning Both Ends by Sinclair Jayne A Hot Aussie Knights Romance #2 This sizzling sensual story of two firefighters who meet at a funeral, feel immediate lust for one another and then decide to spend one memorable night together definitely does not end after that one night. Nope, Darington “Dare” Knight has been sent to Australia as part of a firefighter exchange program and eventually ends up working under Lachlan “Lock” Ryker, fire station commander. Lock, as you might have guessed, is Dare’s man of the one night stand. With rules in place against fraternization, pasts that impact the present and scorching chemistry it is not long before the two are busy evaluating the pros and cons of spending heir few months together as colleagues or as perhaps more. With a few surprises thrown in to keep things interesting this was a book I could not put down once I started reading. And, I am still thinking about Lock…he’s a keeper…and thankfully he and Dare eventually get their HEA. Oh…Dare is no slouch, either. The two SO deserve to end up together :) NOTE: This is book 2 of Hot Aussie Knights but also book 1 of Smoky Mountain Knights. Prolific Leonard Knight had 7 sons all of whom became firefighters. Those sons had children that will be showcased, I believe, in the two book series. Rocky Mountain Knights will include Dare’s sisters and take place in Sweet Tea, Tennessee while the cousins down under will have their stories told in Australia. At least…that is my guess. Fun thing is that some of the books seem to be written by different authors so though connected a variety of voices will be used to share the stories of at least some of the Knight family. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review.
