Title: Pure Heat by M. L. Buchman
Series: Firehawks #1
Date Read: March 12, 2020
Carly Thomas is a third generation forest fire specialist who has lost both her father and fiance to the flames. She has learned to shut down her emotions to protect herself from further pain. Former smokejumper Steve “Merks” Mercer can no longer fight fires, but he can be a spotter with drones. Together these two fight fires and the heat between them.
This book was ok. The beginning was kind of dry because of the heavy details of fire control and fire jumping. It made it hard to actually get into the book and characters to begin with.
Carly was a smart and capable woman. She knows her job and is excellent at it. I quite liked her. Steve starts out as a jerk and it took me a long while to warm up to him. He got better once we actually started learning about his past and his injury. The romance between them was pretty good and wasn’t drawn out like I thought it would be in the beginning.
Overall, this book was ok. I enjoyed it once I got past the beginning details and into Steve and Carly as a couple.
