  • M/M Firefighter Contemporary Romance

    Lincoln Reid and Jacob Hartman have known one another for decades. Jacob is the little brother of Wyatt, Lincoln’s best friend. That Jacob had an unrequited crush on Lincoln is not a secret but Lincoln has avoided Jacob and the chemistry between them for a long time. When the two men find themselves on the same fire crew preparing for the next season it is a wee bit uncomfortable for both of them...in more ways than one. Will Jacob wear Linc down? Will Linc be able to set aside the promise he has made to Wyatt in the past? Will the two be able to find a happily ever aver or not? Well, since this is from HQN-Carina the odds are pretty good their relationship will work out just right for both of them. What I liked: * Jacob – a bright, happy, positive man with a goal he wanted to achieve. * Lincoln – conflicted for more than one reason and not willing to take a chance on happiness * The team the two men work with – seem like a good lot to work with * Jacob’s family – there for one another, for the most part * The bits about fire fighting * The dogs – dogs always add to a story * Domestic scenes: cooking, TV, family events * The reminder that a person can have both good and bad – thinking of Wyatt – and how two people who know that person with two sides will not see that person the same way * That the two finally ended up on the same page together What I did not like: * Being reminded just how dangerous being a firefighter is. * The reminder that bigotry and homophobia are a real thing Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? I think so Thank you to NetGalley and HQN-Carina for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

  • Wonderful!

    This is the first book in the Hotshots series. This was a wonderful start to the series, and the author really did her homework on what is involved in fighting wild fires. The characters were wonderful and the pace was excellent. A great start to a new series, I can’t wait for the next installment.

  • I couldn't put this book down!

    I couldn't put this book down! The slow burn between Linc and Jacob became a sizzling heat that rival the fires they put out. Linc and Wyatt have been friends for years and worked together as smoke jumpers but there was one thing that had come between them, Wyatt was always warning Linc away from Jacob, his younger brother. Jacob was ten years younger then Linc and came out to his family nineteen and his brother wasn't to happy about it. This twist to the story was nicely done there was no gay bashing or drunken bar fights, Annabeth Albert shows readers a different side of things that not many people see, how families react to finding out someone is gay when they are on the homophobic side of things whether its because of religion or upbringing or personal insecurities. Linc's promise to Wyatt about staying away from Jacob is what has Linc fighting with himself for the majority of the book but sometimes promises are made to the wrong people and they shouldn't cost you your happiness. The chemistry between Jacob and Linc is something that is worth fighting for, even if you're fighting a ghost. If you enjoyed the OUT OF UNIFORM Series by Annabeth Albert this series is for you. I would also recommend this book to readers that enjoy the Best Friends Sibling Trope or the Hurt/Comfort Trope. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**

  • Very Enjoyable

    This was a great series opener with great characters and a storyline that really drew me in. Linc and Jacob were already connected by the grief they shared and the closer they got the more heat they generated. The relationship between Jacob, Wyatt (his brother), and Linc was just angst ridden, Linc was kept away because of Wyatt's homophobic ass and I felt that Jacob really deserved a better brother. He was such a strong person, going after what he wanted both in his professional and personal lives. All in all an enjoyably series starter. *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by NetGalley*

  • Crackles with tension, conflict, & unrequited love

    Annabeth Albert’s latest novel, Burn Zone, takes place in the fictional central Oregon town of Painter’s Ridge. Burn Zone is a story filled with rugged smoke-jumpers, their families, friends, and lovers. To add to the mix, there are several lovable dogs. The novel crackles with tension, unresolved conflict, and unrequited love. It’s primarily the story of senior smoke jumper Lincoln (Linc) Reid and rookie smoke jumper Jacob Hartman, who just happens to be several years younger than Linc. They’re beautifully written characters who truly deserve each other. Hovering between Jacob and Linc is the memory of Jacob’s older brother, Wyatt Hartman. Wyatt was Linc’s high school buddy and his first and closest fire fighting partner. Linc and Jacob each have doubts and fears about the obvious attraction they feel for each other. Linc needs to learn to trust Jacob. Jacob needs to learn to trust Linc. Unfortunately, trust didn’t come easily to either man. The story is filled with statements such as: Luke was man of his word - to everyone except Jacob. And Jacob’s response: Maybe you gave your word to the wrong guy? And then there's the classic line we’ve all heard and likely used ourselves, ‘You wouldn’t understand.’ Ultimately, Burn Zone is a heart-warming book and an excellent read leaving me wanting even more. I received an Advance Review Copy of ‘Burn Zone’ from NetGalley and Carina Press in exchange for an honest review. #BurnZone #NetGalley
