Adult book review- Feel the heat

Feel the Heat by Lori O'Clare, P.J. Mellor, Lydia Parks

This is an adult romance book. This book is an anthology that contains 3 stories that all have firefighters, love, romance and some mention of high school in them.

The 1st story is called "Fight fire with fire" by Lorie O'Clare. The main characters include Mary Hamilton, a police phone operator, and Nate Armstrong, a firefighter. This story was unique. It starts out with a high school friend and fellow firefighter John dying and Nate feeling like it should have been him instead. Nate and Mary grow closer together as they try to work their way through this tough time. Throw in some fires, a high school crush, an arsonist and other high school ties and you have a really good story.

The 2nd story is called "Heat Wave" by P.J. Mellor. The main characters include Summer Wadsworth and firefighter Thorne Paxton. This story was funny. Whatever could go wrong, goes wrong. Even a few things that you wouldn't think could go wrong, does. It starts off with Summer catching on fire from some explosion outside and Thorne being the one finding her unconscious. Throw in Summers beagle dogs Lola, Thorne's not really motel home, 3 old lady triplets, and a ton more and you've got a story that will have you cringing and laughing at the same time.

The 3rd story is called "Smoldering Lust" by Lydia Parks. The main characters include Hannah Hayward, the city manager, and Lee Evans, the new fire chief. This story was an enjoyment to read. It starts off with a flashback to a high school party where Hannah is abandoned by her ride as he takes off with another girl and getting a ride home from Lee along with a kiss. Then it goes to present day where Lee has come back to become the new fire chief and going to Hannah to ask for money to help get the fire house in shape. Throw in some hot scenes, Sterling Mason (the rich, spoiled, everything goes my way, don't listen to others man who abandons Hannah at the party and thinks that they are an item in the present time), a proposal, budget and fire house matters and you have a really great story.

Overall, this book was good. I'd probably go with a 3.5 out of 5 star review. If you like to read firefighter, high school past references/memories, love, or romance stories, you'd enjoy this book.
