The author of Bring the Heat returns to Sugarland, where a firefighter from Station Five will face the dangers in risking his heart...

A near-fatal accident left firefighter/paramedic Clay Montana with devastating injuries. Now, after a year-long recovery, Clay is focused on one thing: getting his body back to form, so he can return to the job he loves. And then a chance meeting with a fiery redhead changes his life...
Detective Melissa Ryan may be the new cop on the block, but she’s no stranger to Sugarland. It’s where she lived with her violent, criminal uncle—a man she needs to see behind bars. But when she meets Clay at a crime scene, the down-but-far-from-out firefighter makes her rethink her priorities.
Getting close to Clay is intoxicating, but Melissa must keep her wits about her if she’s to protect them from a man with deadly intentions…

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 CLAY!! I am so glad that we finally go Clay’s story. As all of the guys/gals start to fall in love Clay finds himself the odd man out. But he is okay with that or he thought he was. There is nothing like almost dying to put your life into perspective. Clay is great. I really liked his grit and determination to get back into the Station house. Throw in the tough new Detective Melissa Ryan and you get fireworks from the word go. I enjoyed the fireworks between these two. But I am thinking these two need to live in a safety bubble. I loved how all the guys/gals of Station Five are always there for each other too. I can’t wait to see what is next in this series for us. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley & Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: 3.5 Stars I’m going to review this book with a little What I Liked/Didn’t like, as I feel it’s probably the best way to really grasp my opinion on this story. What I Liked The Characters Clay is someone that deserves his HEA. He’s sexy, sensitive, sweet and extremely charming. Not to mention the fact that he’s a firefighter (rawr!). Melissa, the female of Clay’s desire, is a down-to-earth, strong and sweet woman. The Chemistry Clay and Melissa had a cute and fun rapport. Their chemistry wasn’t over the top steamy, but they were definitely made for one another. From the moment they met, they knew they were made for each other. The Story Ms. Davis did a wonderful job of bringing Clay and Melissa together. The robbery/hero/rescuer play was brilliantly done, and made their quick-to-fall-in-love romance all the more believable. What I Didn’t Like The Sex I know. This is weird. And perhaps I should clarify… I don’t mean the sex itself, I mean the language used to describe the sex. It was hokey and ridiculous most of the time, and made the sex comical instead of steamy. It was not the usual “sex talk”, and it made me uncomfortable for Clay and Melissa. To the point that I skipped over all of these scenes. The Villain Without giving anything away… I don’t like how the villain was almost forgotten about in the first half of the story. It bothered me that he was just mentioned as “evil”, but wasn’t given any “screen time”, as they’d say in the movies. The villain was such a pivotal part of the story, and should have been given their due. Overall All things aside, I really did enjoy Clay and Melissa’s story. They were a cute couple that were brought together under the perfect of circumstances. It was fun to watch them reach their happily ever after, and while there were pros and cons to this story, it is a quick, enjoyable read. Fans of Jo Davis will enjoy Clay and Melissa’s story. Marie voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are her own.

Face the Flames by Jo Davis is the 6th book in her Sugarland Blue series. We have been waiting for Clay’s story, and it did not disappoint. Almost immediately, we see Clay in a major accident driving the Fire station emergency vehicle. The story then shifts to months later, as Clay is still in rehab, pushing himself to be able to prove he can go back to work at the Fire House, but Clay still has a way to go. While painfully pushing himself doing walking exercises, Clay notices a robbery attempt. He was just in time to save the young boy behind the counter, but the robber got away. It is here that we meet our heroine, Detective Melissa Ryan, as she reports to the scene of the crime. Both Melissa and Clay are attracted to each other from the start, as their chemistry heats up the place quickly. Clay has always been a playboy, and teases his co-workers who have found their mates; but his perspective after the accident changes him, and he slowly begins to see that maybe just maybe he wants to find one girl to spend his life with. Though he is somewhat handicapped, he is determined to court Melissa. Melissa is new to Sugarland and the police force. She has been a cop for years, but decides to return home to help bring her criminal uncle to justice. The focus of this story besides Clay and Melissa’s scorching hot romance, is the tense danger that both Melissa and Clay will be put in the middle of, as her Uncle and his men will stop at nothing to bring them down. Rather than tell too much more would be spoilers, but the story is intense at times, and very sexy other times. I thought that this story did have more sexual scenes then in the other books, which at times did take away somewhat from the other tense story line. I love seeing the other characters from Sugarland play a part, especially Melissa & Clay’s co-workers. Both Clay and Melissa were wonderful together, and Melissa was very supportive in Clay’s determination to be able to go back to being a fire fighter. Face the Flames was a wonderful exciting story, with a great couple, great supporting cast, and a evil villain. I suggest you read the entire Sugarland Blue series.
