After hurting for so long he is also ready to start living that is the way he is ready to start fighting for the one that got away. The only trouble is Jack ex and his job. Will Shasa accepted Jack with all his good and bad? An interesting love story that I liked that it was not predictable, I loved the humor and wish there would bitt more. Jack and Sasha's attraction is hot and explosive. I liked that we see all the gang and how are they doing. Can't wait to see arsonist to be caught and next love story of Tinman. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
Firefighter romances were my thing when I first started to read e-books, I loved them, I devoured them, the more the heat and angst from the dangers of the job, the better. And Leora Gonzales' books have reignited that fire for these stories in me. I can't get enough of them! Ms. Gonzales has such an enjoyable way to tell a story, the humor and laugh-out-loud moments balance the deep sorrow, angst, and despair. The banter is spirited, the flirting is filled with titillating innuendoes, the love scenes are filled with deep emotions, tenderness, adoration, and hot-hot-hot sexual tension. In Still Burning, the accidental roommates + second chance romance + brother's best friend romance, Sasha Kendall and Jack Turner have all the feels, connection, chemistry - everything that one could think that a relationship requires, yet they have to dig deep to find the courage to trust life to deliver moments meaningful enough to balance the danger of losing each other one day. Add to that mix the serial arsonist keeping all the fire station personnel on their toes, and Jack's mentally unstable ex-girlfriend who comforted him after Sasha walked away -- you got all the feels, heat, humor, threat and danger in a well-twined tale that entertained. Even though I am not a fan of the third person drama in my romance, here it worked, and towards the end made an excellent plot twist. For those sunny, summer beach days, binge reading in the garden, or however you want to do it, Braving the Heat series entertain your romantic mind while providing the best of friends, tight brotherhood, humor, heart, laughter, danger, and swoon-worthy moments in ardent, entertaining romance tales... ~ Four Spoons
