Casee‘s review of Wild Heat (Hot Shots Series, Book 1) by Bella Andre.

Maya Jackson doesn’t sleep with strangers. Until the night grief sent her to the nearest bar and into the arms of the most explosive lover she’s ever had. Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake. Now her number one suspect in a string of deadly wildfires.

Risking his life on a daily basis is what gets Logan up in the morning. As the leader of the elite Tahoe Pines Hotshot Crew, he won’t back down from a blaze—or from beautiful, lethal Maya Jackson. She may have seduced him with her tears and her passion, but it’ll be a cold day in hell before Logan lets down his guard again. But when Maya’s life is threatened, his natural-born-hero instincts kick in, and Logan vows to protect the woman sworn to bring him down. And as desire reignites, nothing—not the killer fire nor the killer hot on their trail—can douse the flames.…

Is there anything better than a firefighter hero? I didn’t think so.

Maya Jackson grew up among firefighters. Her dad was one, as was her brother. They’re both dead b/c of fire, something that Maya has a very hard time living with. As an arson investigator, her skills are in high demand. When she returns to Lake Tahoe, where her brother died, she’s determined to not only stop the arsonist that is burning the forests of Tahoe, but also to find out what really happened to her brother. She doesn’t realize that is going to be a problem until she gets there and realizes that she knows the prime suspect.

Logan Cain has never forgotten the woman that came into the bar in the middle of the afternoon a year ago and rocked his world. He’s shocked when she shows up and tells him that he is a suspect in arson. He finds it laughable, but knows she has to do her job. What he doesn’t like is that her job might take her right to the door of his mentor.

This book was very well written. It spoke very well to the danger firefighters face every day, without bogging the story down. It also showed the relationships that firefighters have with each other. The camaraderie between firefighters is really amazing. I think that the author did a wonderful job showing what it takes to get the job done.

I just thought everything about this book was good. The story and the characters. It was my first book by Bella Andre. I’m looking forward to reading more of her.

4.25 out of 5.

This book is available from Dell Publishing. You can buy it here or here in e-format.

    I have heard of Bella Andre but have never read anything of hers. I ordered this after the review as it sounds good. Plus i have been looking around for firefighter heros so this sounds like a good start.

    I am interested in her sports books too as I have read a few sports books lately that I have really enjoyed.
