Burn Zone (Hotshots #1) - Annabeth Albert

Jacob has been in love with Lincoln for a while.  They have had to live apart, since Lincoln would not give them a chance and hurt his best friend.  Jacob being his best friends little brother put a kink in the works.


Lincoln is not sure what to do when Jacob not only comes back to town, but works with him as a smoke jumper as well.  He has paid his dues.  The only issue now is can Lincoln let Jacob run in danger and not blow his cover?  His feelings have been hidden and now they may come to light.


This story was so HOT!  I mean that in both the figurative & literal ways.  I loved that this was a second chance story.  The job is dangerous, but so is loving someone forbidden.  These characters made losing sleep worth my while, as I could not put this one down until I finished the whole thing.  Lots of sparks a flyin'!  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Hot Zone (Hotshots)
Hot Zone - Anne Marsh Hot Zone is the second novella in Anne Marsh’s Hot Shot’s series. This novella is a quick read romance focusing on the men of the Big Bear Rogue firefighters. These men are adrenaline junkies spending their time in the field fighting the fiercest of blazes only returning to camp to rest their bodies enough to get their strength back to put them back into the heat.

Dade Johnson is one sexy Rogue that embraces his time in the heat with little distracting him from his job. Sarah Jo is a new camp employee whose fresh looks and free spirit has caught the attention of Dade. A traditional bet amongst the ladies of the kitchen puts Sarah Jo in the hot seat literally as she playfully plants a scorching kiss on Dade igniting everything in him. Sarah Jo is in for quite a surprise when Dade’s response is willing and filled with true desire for her. Now the chemistry has been created and the chase is on, but Sarah Jo isn’t looking to explore anything with Dade since she is running from her past, hell bent being alone. When her past shows up in the form of a deputy set on vengeance, she finds her new found “relationship” with Dade gives her protection and a real sense of security. Dade just needs Sarah Jo to open up and learn to run to him instead of away.

Review: "Hot Zone" by Anne Marsh
Hot Zone - Anne Marsh

Anne Marsh's "Hot Zone" will probably be either hit or miss for a novella of its length. I was able to read a short blurb of it in the Winter release snippet for Kensington Books, then requested a galley of it. The story revolves around a woman on the run named Sarah Jo who happens to come upon a group of firefighters while working for a group of cooks. The cooks have this thing each year where they randomly kiss the firefighters, and Sarah Jo just so happens to pick Dade to plant a steamy kiss upon.

Dade's caught off his guard (in more ways than one), and there's a bit of an insta-lust between them after the said kiss and some romantic interludes. But Sarah Jo carries a secret and much of it has to do with a deputy (Thad) who's hard nosed about pursuing her.

I honestly think that if this had been given novel treatment, it would've had a little more standing for the story it presented. (There were a few ick points with me, such as Sarah Jo's drive by kiss meeting with Dade and also Dade's reluctance to untie Sarah Jo after a rough encounter. But there may be some people who aren't as bothered by that as I was.) It's a decent effort for a mystery/suspense/thriller with romantic interludes, but it felt just a touch too quick for me to digest. I felt that even for the major characters established - Sarah Jo, Dade, and Thad - something was missing, and I couldn't put my finger on it until I realized that there could've been more development.

Still, quick read and a decent effort for what it provided. I'd read more from Anne Marsh in the future, notably to see how her longer work comes across.

Overall: 2.5/5 stars

Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher Kensington.

Reading progress update: I've read 7 out of 78 pages.
Hot Zone - Anne Marsh

Uber short read that I was just approved for on NetGalley.  Might as well finish and write a review on it.


Is it bad that this book is making me want to randomly walk up and kiss a firefighter? (Basically, this is what the heroine and her friends are doing at the start of the book.)


I think in my case, it'd be a kiss of thanks for all the hard work the men in uniform do, though.

Reburn (The Hotshots, #1) - Anne Marsh Reburn (The Hotshots, #1) - Anne Marsh Book InfoebookExpected publication: July 18th 2013 by Kensington BooksSource:Netgalley EARCBook Buy LinksAMAZON>B&NBOOK SYNOPSISNot every man knows how to put out a fire. Fewer know when to keep it burning. . .He Battles The Flames. . .Nobody messes with Sam Clayton--or his territory. The big bruising ranger is the last line of defense in forest infernos and he'll go up against anyone who gets in the way of putting them out. Even the FBI tracking a terrorist through the heart of a blaze. But when Sam discovers the agent is ex-lover Olivia Albert, saving himself will be more dangerous than any fire he's faced before. . .She Lives For The Heat. . .Olivia needs Sam's help to survive the heat, but when it comes to keeping her quarry from detonating a major strike, this Bureau agent is calling the shots. Except when Sam's hard body and expert hands are reigniting a second chance that could be hot enough to burn forever. .My ThoughtsU.S. Forest Service firefighter Sam Clayton is not just some average alpha male hero he is a man whose dedication to protecting the Sequoia National Forest is matched by his singleminded devotion to the only woman to ever capture his heart Olivia Albert, and the ex-lover who walked away 10 years prior, when Olivia turns out to be the FBI agent in charge of a team tracking a terrorist in the middle of a raging inferno Sam and his team are fighting Sam knows that he has to find her at all costs before either the terrorist or the fire do so.Like all of author Anne Marsh's work read to date this one starts off with intensity and it never slows down the pace. Set in the midst of a massive forest fire one feels the heat, smells the smoke and ash and right along with Sam the tension that builds as he and Olivia find themselves caught in the heart of the fire with only a few options that may or may not see them live through the night.The rush of adrenaline that comes when Sam must battle the crazed suspect that followed he and Olivia to the rocky gorge that gave them shelter from the forest fire is almost as big of a rush as the one you get when Sam and Olivia's mutual lust blazes across the pages! The confrontation is short and turns deadly for the terrorist when he flees into the flames of the fire, it is almost a let down that one feels that the manhunt ended so abruptly but the fact that neither Sam nor Olivia perished in the same fire but instead made it out was compensation for the end of the suspense.Like all good romance stories there is conflict in this case the fact that Sam lives and breathes best in the territory he returned to once he did a short stint as a Marine, also fighting fires just on soil other than the US, and the fact that Olivia left to become part of the FBI with the intention of it being her full time career. These two have lost 10 years and when they realize that those years in between never dimmed either the blaze that one touch can ignite or the love that has only matured with time the obstacles they face become something to work around rather than something to keep them apart.Thoroughly enjoyed the novella, although it felt much too short as it went by too fast, the characters were given just enough of a fleshing out to connect with them and their back story was revealed just enough to make their rekindled romance believable as well as keeping it from feeling too rushed. So even though it would have been nice to have read a full length book as the beginning in the spin-off from the author's Smoke Jumpers series, which showcases the importance of our real life firefighters as well as gives us a glimpse into the authors characters dedication to their chosen profession, it truly read well in the short span of time that it covered. I could not put the Kindle down!Anne Marsh's firefighters are among my favorite characters and the women who win their make believe hearts are beyond lucky![EArc from Netgalley in exchange for honest review]
