I took this out of my Purgatory shelf yesterday to give it another try It now goes into my Mission Aborted shelf The first few pages were okay but this second time around, I was convinced the author wanted to make firefighters look like horny adolescents with not a shred of good sense. Why else would she make her hero have his brain wrapped about the heroine s breasts, in a house on fire Seriously, I do not think ANY firefighter focuses on anything but getting the occupants out to safety and putting the fire out Horny bastard he may be but he won t be ruminating about the softness of the woman s breasts while a fire is raging I not only like my heroes to be disciplined on the job, totally focused and a professional I can trust not to be distracted in a dangerous situation, it s what turns me on I would NOT be attracted to an idiot who can t keep I ended up liking this bookthan I thought I would There are some minor details that could have been better like not using the word shazaam EVER in a romance book but overall it was a fun read The author wrote some very engaging characters and a fast moving story I love the firefighter theme, I wishromances would include them I will be reading the rest of the series, I can t wait to read about the hot Italian Latin stud. I enjoyed this first installment of the Firefighters of Station Five by Jo Davis First off I have to mention that the hero is a 6 6 260 pound hot fireman Can you getfantasy material that that I don t think so It took me a few chapters to overlook the guy s unfortunate name Howard just doesn t cut it I did really like Howard He came from a horribly abusive childhood, and was eventually adopted by a wonderful couple Now at 36 years old, he s starting to have nightmares about his childhood He is not sure if the dreams are memories or just nightmares He s also been celibate for a full year because he was tired of feeling used and empty afterward. Kat is the school teacher Howard falls for when he rescues her from a burning home They are attracted to each other instantly I liked Kat, too She was confident and smart, and gasp cu ☆ Trial by Fire × 5 stars Romantic SuspenseA very steamy romantic suspense, featuring a sexy firefighter hero, Howard Six Pack Paxton, and a feisty female lead, a teacher named Kat McKenna, whose relationship burns hotter than a four alarm fire It s total fluff, but lots of fun, and seriously H O T Get Burned Lieutenant Howard Six Pack Paxton Loves Three Things Being A Firefighter, Riding His Harley, And His Bachelorhood That Is, Until The Curvaceous Kat McKenna Falls Into His Arms At The Scene Of A Fire And Melts The Six Foot Six Tower Of Bronze Muscle But Just As Passion Ignites Between Them And They Explore New Heights Of Ecstasy, A Ruthless Arsonist With A Deadly Secret And A Thirst For Vengeance Becomes Their Worst Download Epub Format ñ Trial by Fire PDF by Ä Jo Davis Nightmare I really enjoyed this book the arsonist storyline was enhanced by getting the arsonist s point of view but it wasn t over done to the point of me thinking reallyfrom the bad guy I loved Howard, and I liked Kat a lot but her corny phrases drove me nuts And to be honest, the firemen were almost true to life, but not one had a potty mouth I m not one for cursing, I never have been, but sometimes men just cuss Now I m married to a fireman, have been for 8 years this month, and every last one of them swears If you ve read JR Ward s BDB, the firemen I ve known sound like her men. But other than that, the story was great I liked how the romance wasn t overshadowed by the mystery action And I really liked how we coul This book had a really good premise, and I did finish it feeling satisfied with the outcome, but I had problems with the book as I read My initial issue was the first meeting between the hero and heroine The heroine has just recovered consciousness after a TSTL moment, the home of her parents friends is burning, and a body has just been found handcuffed to the bed This all manages to be overshadowed by her overwhelming attraction to the firefighter paramedic, Howard Paxton, who is treating her, and she flirts, teases him by calling him Howie, and makes certain that he knows her phone number is listed In the situation they were facing, this lighthearted behavior did not ring true for me, and it set the stage for how I felt about the relationship between the hero
