Hunky fire chief Eric is out of the closet after twenty years of marriage. Can he find true love, or will a spate of arson fires destroy his chances with Tom, the sexy young fire-fighter? Eric is a fire chief in Mesa, Arizona where he’s lived all of his life. A hunky Norse god like man, he has finally come out of the closet after twenty years of marriage. Now his wife hates him, his son won’t speak to him, a town crazy wants him fired, and there’s a rash of arson fires destroying some of the beautiful historic homes in the area. To let off steam, he’s been tempted to explore his long repressed sexuality with his son’s twenty year-old friend. Tom, a twenty-eight year-old fire-fighter from Texas, is desperate to get away from his dad’s prejudice about his sexuality, and an unstable relationship that just recently ended. He takes a temporary position in Mesa where he sets eyes on the most gorgeous male specimen he’s ever seen in the form of the fire chief, Eric Anderson. Convinced the chief is straight, he accidentally catches him one night with a young guy, and is now determined to let the chief know he’s interested. Eric is adamant that they can only be friends, even though he finds the sweet young Tom adorable. The pressures on Eric increase as his ex-wife becomes a suspect, and the town crazy tries to blame the arson fires on him. Will he allow himself to find real love with the sexy Tom, or will his world be destroyed by all of the city’s accusations and his family’s lack of acceptance?

I wanted to like this one. I was rooting for it, despite the low rating. I have to say though that I agree with the majority on this one.The insta-love did not work for me in this. They are together for 2 days (really only a few hours if you take in most of those days were spent apart) and they ar...
can't resist a discounted book:)
Very two dimensional. Way over the top insta-love and man, a whole hell of a lot of other stuff going on. Simply did not feel it. Big disappointment for me. Sad fireman fail!
Thank goodness this was on special for $0.99 on ARe as it was disappointing. The key issue was the whole insta-love, with these men falling in love within a day or two of meeting. Not only did they fall in love, they launched straight into cute nick-names and sweet talk. This was made even more unb...
2.5 stars.While I really liked the blurb, the execution of this story left me wanting. The dialogue was quite stiff and full of soppy endearments (which I normally don't mind at all but there were just too many too fast), the pacing was off, characterisations cliched, and we didn't even meet the evi...
