Title: Feel the Fire
Author: Annabeth Albert
Series: Hotshots #3
Fire behavior specialist Luis Rivera has been assigned to an arson investigation in Central Oregon. Unfortunately this is where he had his heart broken 20 years ago and knows that the man who broke it is still there. Tucker Ryland is nothing like the boy he remembered and is even hotter than before. It’s going to take all Luis’s control not to fall for his childhood crush all over again.
Twenty years ago, Tucker promised he would move to LA with Luis so they could have a life together, but life got in the way. Now he is a divorced demisexual father to twin boys who are preparing for college and is struggling to deal with them leaving. I really loved Tucker and his sons. Tucker was so sweet and caring with Luis that he just melted my heart with every interaction. His sons were surprisingly great side characters. They were supportive and encouraging of his choices, even when they struggled to deal with all the changes going on in their lives.
Luis loves Tucker but struggles to get over their past break up. It takes some heartbreak and some words of wisdom to get him to realize he can’t give up the one person who is ment to him. I loved that this book shows how important compromise is in a relationship. You have to be willing to give up everything sometimes to find true happiness.
I really enjoyed this book. I can always count on Albert’s to create an emotional and moving story. I loved that this book featured a demisexual because it was a first for me. I love that she tries to write a variety LGBTQ stories. Overall I really enjoyed Tucker and Luis’ story. They had a steamy and emotional relationship that I just loved. I also loved the little glimpses of previous couples from this series.
