Publisher's Summary

Introducing Annabeth Albert’s Hotshots series: the emotions and intensity of Chicago Fire with the raw, natural elements of Man vs. Wild.

Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon’s fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts....

Smokejumper Lincoln Reid is speechless to see Jacob Hartman among his squad’s new recruits. Linc had promised his late best friend he’d stay away from his little brother. And yet here Jacob is...and almost instantly, the same temptation Linc has always felt around him is causing way too many problems.

Jacob gets everyone’s concerns, but he’s waited years for his shot at joining the elite smokejumping team, hoping to honor his brother’s memory. He’s ready to tackle any challenge Linc throws his way, and senses the chemistry between them - chemistry Linc insists on ignoring - is still alive and kicking. This time, Jacob’s determined to get what he wants.

Close quarters and high stakes make it difficult for Linc to keep his resolve, nevermind do so while also making sure the rookie’s safe. But the closer they get, the more Linc’s plan to leave at the end of the season risks him breaking another promise: the one his heart wants to make to Jacob.

Stormy rather than steamy

Storyline was ok but what made it challenging was the multiple voices of the narrator. Somewhat annoying and took away the emotion in the story.

Lincoln and Jacob

Lincoln is a seasoned Smoke jumper along with his best mate Wyatt, 9 months ago he lost Wyatt to a fire, now his younger brother Jacob has shown up as a new Recruit. Wyatt warned Linc to stay away from his brother but that promise has kept them apart over the last 6 years. The smoke is hot around those two, not just at the fires. Another accident sees Linc confessing his love. Great way to start of A new series as this book was Hot af.

Most BORING listenning this year...

This was a drag to finish. This story was longer than need be. It was 95% of MC feeling sorry for himself but yet not being able to help himself by getting involved with the other MC. 3% of firefighter action and talks, and 2% of sudden realization. The characters were meek and uninteresting. The climb to the climax-less conclusion was a snooze fest. Good thing about audio is I just move my cursor to skim thru draggy-chapters. I'm returning for my credit and not continuing with series. The second book's summary sounds as dull.

Excellent - with one quibble

This is an entertaining best-friend's-hot-little-brother story, and I enjoyed it when I read it on kindle. I was delighted when it came out in audiobook format, as I particularly like Iggy Toma. Be aware of one thing though: the story contains flashbacks which are in italics in the text, but except for the first two chapters which are dated, the time jumps are in no way noted in narrative form. As some of them are very short - sometimes as little as a couple of lines of dialog - I found it hard to follow even though I had read the book pretty recently. Really, some producer should have caught this, and somebody ought to fix it. Otherwise, the book is great: well-researched detail about smoke jumpers, an interesting twist on the older brother trope, complications - age gap, family, and being coworkers - and terrific chemistry.

Really good and emotional firefighter story

Story: I loved the emotions in this story. We get a bit of an age gap trope, with best friend's brother and lon time pining for dessert. The characters were soulful, likable and the author input enough angst to make it interesting. I liked all the tidbits about fire jumpers training, they showed a lot of research went into it! Narration: One thing that is easier in writing, than audio is marking flashbacks (italics in this case). As these are not marked in the audio in any way, jumps between past and present get confusing at times and really make it hard to follow the story. I think there should be some mark input into the narration to make up for the lack of italics. Overall though, the voice and emotions all worked very well and it was a good performance.
