4.5 Stars This is book 7 in the Into the Fire series and it features Donovan and Jasmine. Jasmine is a very fickle woman . At least until she met Donovan. The sparks arcing between them were beautiful! There was no denying the attraction between them. Even though this was a romance between these two and they ended up with their own issues, the conflict in the story was shared between her and Levi. The romance was beautifully written as well as the sibling issues. Great story line! I love seeing some of the other characters from previous books and how well they’re doing. I’m in love with the little town of Willow Brook, Alaska and it’s occupants. I ALWAYS look forward to reading more from this very talented author!

ONE ELECTRIFYING READ!!! Talk about boot scooting. If you like 'em fast paced, action packed, feisty, sassy, steaming hot with more drama than sane person can handle. Good thing I'm not sane. This is one page turning dynamo you don't want to miss. Croix brings out the big guns for this little guy. No holding back, full speed ahead. The characters are complex, well developed and so realistic I felt I could just reach out and touch them. Their personalities are unique with qualities and traits that balance out perfectly. With scenes so graphic and detailed with such vivid insight it paints a fantastic backdrop that really makes the storyline pop. The twists and turns are exciting and believable as Croix's talent and imagination shows us why she on top of her game. Laying it out as the story unfolds with such depths it pulls you deeper into the world she created for our enjoyment. Croix did a remarkable job bringing this read together beautifully. Fantastic job Croix, thanks for sharing this awesome read with us.

Like a box of Hot Tamales, this romance is Sweet and Hot! Jasmine drags her broken dreams back home and attempts to drown them at the local bar. After she punches a guy for getting too frisky, the bartender asks her brother's friend, Donovan, to give her a ride home. These two both have been hurt in the past, so despite their intense attraction, they're careful to guard their hearts and move slowly. But their friends and families start removing the obstacles one by one, until all they can see is each other. Such a sweet, sweet love story, and this author really knows how to write a slow-burning heat with a hot and steamy payoff. I enjoyed the updated glimpses into the lives of the couples from the previous books as well as the familiar cast of secondary characters. This is small town living and loving at its best, and I love every bit of it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

A delightful romantic tale. It was nice to "visit" with other characters this reader has met in previous novels by Ms. Croix. Marvelous characterizations, a strong sense of community and wonderful camaraderie between both sets of male and female friends. Family is very important to both the main male and female characters and they are both lovingly connected with them. Even though this is a really warm romantic tale, there are certainly points of drama, angst and sadness (I cried.). Well done story line. I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this novel and I am leaving an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation with this author.

Returning Home I almost passed on reading this book completely forgetting I had been reading this series previously but was thinking my life was a little too busy to take on another book. SO GLAD I CHOOSE TO READ IT AFTER ALL!! l loved the character Jasmine even when I wanted to smack her because of her insecurities about life choices. Here you have a character that is fiery and sassy but insecure over her choices. Yes, she has done what some of have done in life like bad boyfriends, job choices, and acting before thinking of the consequences but hey she is only human. Now Donovan is hunk-hunk firefighting man and what red blooded woman would not what him? He is not a player but doe not seek a permanent relationship with any woman. The characters were well rounded in the story and descriptive enough that you could fully picture what they looked like which is a plus The storyline was realistic enough to happen in real life with all the issues neatly choreographed in the book. Having read this book in one sitting I deem it a worthy read. This reader felt this book was a complete story without any loose story lines being incomplete. I will admit there is a time jump that I felt could have transitioned a little smoother. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

OMG! I love this series! Jasmine, Levi's sister, blows back into town after her personal disaster. Donovan is at Wildlands when he spies a beautiful woman decking a guy by the pool tables. His first instinct is to protect her, and when he finds out who she is he agrees to take the drunken beauty to Levi's house. The chemistry is instant, but he keeps himself in check, nit wanting to incur the wrath of her brother, his friend and fellow hotshot. They are insanely attracted to each other but they feel their baggage may be too much. Their story is an emotional, sweet and steamy one, I just loved it! You don't need to read the rest of the book to read this one, but it's great if you do because you get to catch up with the characters from the other books!

A great addition to the series Jasmine, a jilted artist, comes home and is taken home by Donovan, a hotshot firefighter and friend to her brother, after an altercation at the local bar. As the story progresses Donovan learns they have a lot in common, Jasmine finds a new path for her life, old wounds heal and love is born. This steamy addition to J. H. Croix's Into The Fire series does not disappoint. A great steamy weekend romance read. I received a free copy of the novel from the author. I had the opportunity to review or not.

Donovan and Jasmine will both melt your heart and also put a tear in your eyes. They both have things in their past to deal with but fate seems to think they can do that better together. This is the best story. There is past hurts that have to heal and burn you up hotness between these two characters. I love how we get to revisit with old friends from previous books but this is a stand alone itself so you don't have to have read the others first but trust me you will want to read them, they are all good. I love how this book shows us that we don't need to carry hurts and grudges with us forever. They are only hurting us when we do. We need to understand that things happen and we sometimes have no control over those things and maybe they happen for reasons we aren't aware of. Basically when one door closes another one opens and maybe that was the door we were supposed to go through all along. I loved Jasmine's spunk. She is a fun character that comes across as all tough as nails but deep down she needs reassurance. Donovan is all sexy southern charm that will melt your heart and heat the rest of you up. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I loved it so much I also bought a copy. I highly recommend it!
