Synopsis: Annabeth Albert’s Hotshots series continues—the emotions and intensity of Chicago Fire with the raw, natural elements ofMan vs. Wild .Smoke jumping is Garrick Nelson’s life. Nothing, not severe injuries nor the brutal physical therapy that follows, is going to stop him from getting back with his crew. But when a lost dog shows up on his front porch, he can’t turn her away, and he can’t take care of her on his own. Thankfully, help comes in the form of his new sexy, dog-loving neighbor. As they work together, trying to re-home their little princess, Garrick can’t resist his growing attraction for the other man, even though he knows this guy isn’t the staying type.
Rain Fisher doesn’t take anything too seriously. He dances through life, one adventure at a time, never settling in one place for too long. When his hot, conveniently buff, neighbor shows up on his doorstep, dog in tow, Rain’s determined to not just save the adorable puppy, but her reluctant owner as well. He never expects their flirtation might tempt him into stay put once and for all...
Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon’s fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts. Don’t miss the Hotshots series from Annabeth Albert: Burn Zone, High Heat, and Feel the Fire. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was a great addition to the Hotshots Series. I enjoyed myself. It's a romance with some personal things that have to be overcome. Garrick Nelson was severely injured and must heal before returning to the things he loves most, Smoke jumping. He has injuries that need to heal and needs the motivation to put up the with grueling physical therapy.
This also features an age gap romance. Garrick is older, while Rain is young, and a little more free-spirited. I do think they fit well together though. The age didn't break their romance.
There's also a sweet, lost dog. I always love a book with a dog.
High Heat was cute and I enjoyed being back in the Hotshots world. If this book calls to you, I'd definitely recommend giving it a read.
