Verne was with the U. S. Coast Guard and flew helicopter near areas on fire. He was six years training with the Coast Guard with four more years of flying to fire. Now Vern’s helicopter was malfunctioning. Vern managed to override the problem and land safely but then he had to deal with Denise who was the chief mechanic for Mount Hood Aviation. Denise wasn’t really mad at Vern but at herself as she had sent Vern up in a machine that broke down even though Vern landed safely. Vern called Denise “ Wrench”. Denise was determined to not get involved with a pilot again. Denise had been involved with a pilot a long time ago. But “Slick”- Vern made Denise want to laugh and that wasn’t usual for Denise. Vern was attracted to Denise but he felt he didn’t have a chance. This story was a pretty good story. But a lot of fire fighting language that didn’t particularly interest me. Also the story was slow at time and at other times it was pretty intense so i didn’t hate the story but didn’t love it. I did like the ins and outs of the stories.I also liked the characters. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

What does a sexy helicopter pilot named Vern, and master helicopter mechanic named Denise have in common? M.L. Buchman writing a great story for them in the Firehawks series! Although each story has its own beginning and ending, this is a series you won't want to miss. There is romance and suspense in abundance. I have read about some of the other people in this book back in the Night Stalkers" series, and I love how some of them pop up at the best of times or are continued in this series. I have followed Mark and Emily since the first Night Stalker's book. Or how about Michael and Claudia anyone? It is like visiting old friends, and there is always a "Hot Point" to the story as well. Highly Recommend!! 4.5 Stars!

This was one of the best books in the series. You could easily connect with both Vern and Denise. I especially loved Denise's intelligence and mechanical skills. The two of them were made each other. Along with the romance there was plenty of action. Things happened that I wasn't expecting. It was a fast, fun read.

This was a wonderful book. We sometimes forget that there are people who are fighting forest fires and they have lives that are so intertwined with each other and they fall in love and fight the good fight and sometimes we don't understand the ways of our government and doing things that can't be traced. This was a wonderful love story and a very interesting ending. I love the interactions of the characters.

How did this series get to #10 before I found it? Unreal--but hey, now my TBR's gotten considerably longer (because as long as I still have a TBR going on, I can't die, right? Right??) I did feel a bit as if I came late to the party starting out with book ten--Vern especially alludes to previous events in his thoughts a lot, mostly reflecting on how other couples in the group came together. It wasn't enough to significantly alter my enjoyment of this one, though. There really wasn't anything I HAD to know ahead of time, I just felt as if I should know some of the people as well as he did. But, yay--Emily Beale and Mark Henderson (from The Night Stalkers series) are back. With their daughter. :) (Would readers of the rest of the series book be in on the "secret" that Vern and Denise discover together in this book? I'm guessing they probably would--I did like finding out right alongside our hero and heroine, though. It made me feel more like I was right there with them.) Vern and Denise are an adorable couple. Vern's just brimming with self-confidence, and has absolutely no qualms about admitting when women can do something better than he can. He has all kinds of respect for the women on the team who can out-fly him, and for Denise's mechanic prowess. I found this trait in him to be unbelievably sexy--and obviously, so did Denise. ;) Denise's insecurities did get to be a bit much after a while, but when we understand her history a little better it does make sense why she would feel like that about herself. My heart broke a little for both her and her father. The romance was sweet, and most of its roadblocks came from the characters themselves and were relatively minor. The biggest drama and suspense came from the firefighting and the secret project they embark on in the second half of the book. Mr. Buchman did a good job of immersing us in the world of the firefighters without inundating us with technical jargon and details. Overall I really enjoyed this one and am looking forward to reading more from this series. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

I love Buchman’s writing. He invites you into the world of his characters, bringing each aspect to life in a big way. I love the technical aspects of the novel. It made everything so much more real for me. The action and firefight was unmistakable. His vivid descriptions bring everything to life in an unforgettable way. The plot also intrigued me and kept me guessing. Buchman did loose me a little with the main characters in this one. Denise’s perpetual insecurity contradicted with her career on the front line. I felt as if she went from one extreme to the next within moments. The relationship between her and Vern was a sweet romance. His genuine caring drew me to him. These two did complement one another throughout the tale. Once again Buchman has created a fast paced, action intensive novel that takes readers deep into the lives of his characters. It was a unique addition to the series and one that I enjoyed reading. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Good book for the series. I'm proud of the author, he only used 'hammer' three times. He does have a habit of over using the word. I really liked Vern but Denise not so much. More sex than is normally in Mr. Buchman's books but not done in a raunchy manner. In the future I would like to read about both main characters having a normal happy relationship with their family.
