Avery Syracuse is a New York transplant with the Skeenville Fire Department. He’s a little rough around the edges, but loveable and loyal. Down on his luck in the romance department, he could use some help with the bills and is looking for a roommate when Luke Turner arrives.
Luke is one of the best firemen Avery has ever seen, and it doesn’t make sense for Luke to be wasting his time in Skeenville. The two men have an instant connection both men know is worth exploring. As they set about igniting the fire between them, at home, at the station, up against the engine—it really doesn’t seem to matter—a connection far deeper than physical begins to emerge. However, these two men are going to have to trust each other enough to move beyond old hurts and buried secrets if they want to maintain a partnership—both at the station and at home.
Well, wasn’t this a pleasant surprise! Two firefighters (who actually fight fires!), one gay-for-you, some hurt/comfort, a nice, big lover’s quarrel and some sheet melting sex. All in one book! Practically out of no where! Fucking Christmas in October! Just what the doctor ordered.
MC Avery Syracuse is a member of the Skeenville Fire Department, minding his own business. Just getting out of a 6 month relationship with his cheating boyfriend and at the age where he is ready to settle down with a nice guy. Along comes super firefighter and sexy as all get-out MC Luke Turner, who joins the Skeenville Fire Department after a mandatory 3 month leave-of-absence from his old station. Luke is keeping his past a secret, which is fine with Avery. Everyone deserves their privacy. While Avery is gay as the day is long, Luke is keeping his sexual orientation hidden, but that doesn’t stop Avery from offering the extra room in his home to Luke to rent, which Luke gladly accepts. The two men become fast friends and their story is light and fun and the friendship is relaxed and easy. After a few months, situations force the two men to reveal secrets to one another, and the sexual tension kicks into high gear. Now we find ourselves at the top of the roller coaster and the rest of the ride is absolutely exhilarating. You’re gonna have to read it and experience it for yourself. I’m not giving it away.
I loved this firefighter romance and can highly recommend it to all M/M romance fans, even those who have no interest in the firefighter genre. It was sweet, exciting, romantic and HOT. With a cherry on top.
