    Awesome

    Once again Kimberly Kincaid has brought us a story from Station Seventeen filled with heat, heart, and passion. In this fourth book in the series we get the story of Ian Gamble and Kennedy Mathews. As with all the books you can read this one standalone but do yourself a favor and read this entire series. There is a wonderful twist of romance and suspense that will keep you turning page after page. Gamble is a firefighter at Station Seventeen who is looking for one night to drown his sorrows and memories. All of that comes to an end when a fire breaks out at the bar Kennedy Mathews manages and Gamble is currently occupying. Gamble gets them out safely but the real trouble starts when the fire is determined to be the work of an arson and Kennedy is not being as truthful as she should be. Caught in the middle Gamble works with arson investigators and Kennedy to get to the truth about what happened that night all while fighting the attraction that is smoldering between him and Kennedy. Can they get to the truth without getting burned? I highly recommend this one.

    Bonus points!

    Ian Gamble had every intention of getting royally drunk, as he did every year on that particular day. And he was well on his way to oblivion – and home – when coming out of the bathroom, he heard a commotion. He had spent a good part of his evening lusting after the bartender, the luscious Kennedy Matthews, who was being harassed by a customer. He knew Kennedy was no wilting flower, but he did not expect her to handle the customer all by herself! And Gamble’s lust – and other things – rose even higher. Kennedy had also been eyeing Gamble all evening, and after her ordeal in the bar, things were about to get steamy, when Gamble smelled smoke … Once again, Kimberly Kincaid has written a carefully plotted romantic suspense, and as always her vivid descriptions of fire and firefighting had my stomach in knots. Kennedy and Gamble are both very engaging and complex characters, and I loved reading their backstories. Kennedy’s brother Xander is at the heart of the intrigue; he’s a pretty wonderful character himself, although it seemed to me as if he were eighteen instead of twenty three, this compounded by how Kennedy treated him. The arson plot has been an ongoing on, but it’s not necessary to have read the previous books to understand what’s going on. DOWN DEEP features a most fascinating villain, and it was enlightening and scary to peek inside the mind of an arsonist; that horrible man nearly stole the show, and this is what you need to make a compelling suspense novel. Apart from an overuse of “yeah” in the narrative, and to some extent in the snappy dialogues, the writing is smooth, dynamic – dare I say explosive! – as Ms. Kincaid gets all the tension across without missing a beat. Gamble, a man of action, but also a man of few words, and sometimes this sort of character can come across as a bit flat, but the author worked her way around it beautifully: Gamble is an active listener, and it makes all the difference in the world. Kennedy is a tough cookie, but never comes across as abrasive or defensive. The romance progresses organically, and as quick as it happens, I believed in it: both Kennedy and Gamble are straightforward, passionate people who don’t beat around the bush. And wasn’t that refreshing! Now, this is something I seldom do, but I give Ms. Kincaid bonus points for not having an obvious trope, and for Kennedy behaving like a rational human being when she could have done the stupid thing (and also for not being the damsel in distress!).

    A fiery suspenseful read, Kimberly K

    A fiery suspenseful read, Kimberly Kincaid scorches the pages with Kennedy and Gamble's story. This shows the ties that bind and just how easily combustible they can become when twisted just so. You get the full gambit of emotions on a ride that starts with his annual observance of the day he was the onlynmember of his team to walk away from a watch while deployed and Not getting the whole marriage thing. Things shoot upward when a patron of Kennedy's bar gets a little overly aggressive the further into his cup he gets. Her years growing up on the rough side of town kick in and she quickly shows him he's about as tough as his hipster pants. But not before Gamble witnesses it just as he's readying to walk home. He sticks around just in case and she puts him to work helping close up. Just when they get revved up in the pantry, the dumpster behind the building blows and puts them and the bar in jeopardy. When Kennedy's little brother turns up the next morning after a year or so of silence, the ride ratchets up the next windy incline. Seems little brother know something... about the fire but isn't talking. Always his protector, big sister bear jumps in, sure there's more to it; defending him to Gamble. They plummet down again, only to rocket to the next plateau, working together to find out more before Gamble turns him in to the cops. They ply a lady selling tricks with a bit of cash to help locate lil bro. That's downright funny. Turns out. Xander has gotten himself mixed up with a serial arsonist, who threatens his life if he tries to back out of the plan to torch some building as part of a job. But the artistry of the flame and path of destruction consume him, what are a few casualties here and there. That just feeds his desires for more sooner. This rollercoaster of suspense peaks as the arsonist's plan and need to claim past conflagrations become known, and the race is on to stop him before anyone else gets hurt or killed. These characters learn to trust and lean on one another, and themselves. They overcome their past and learn to live not just today but to look forward to the future. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    Scorching Hot

    Loved this book! The romance and suspense were scorching as I turned the pages until the end. This is a book that I could not put down. Gamble and Kennedy both have undesirable pasts. Gamble is a firefighter at Station Seventeen and Kennedy is the bar manager at the Crooked Angel Bar and Grill. When Kennedy finds her brother is in a mess, she teams up with Gamble to find the arsonist. But soon they can't fight the sexual chemistry that they share. Loved, loved this story. Shows the true brotherhood of firefighters and what you do for family. This book is part of series but can be read as a stand alone.

    Romantic Suspense

    Ian Gamble has ghosts and every year he pays tribute to them with a drink…well…quite a few drinks. Kennedy Matthews is bartending the night Ian settles in to drink to his lost comrades and though she keeps the drinks coming she also keeps an eye on him. By the end of the evening the two have walked through fire, almost literally, and are soon to be on the case looking for an arsonist. This is romantic suspense with an arsonist to find, a brother to help and ghosts to lay to rest. There is action and suspense, an evil villain to thwart, a brother to save, secrets to share and some things to overcome as Kennedy and Ian find their way to a HEA. Station Seventeen still has a number of people needing to find their happily ever after so I see more books in the future to read and enjoy. Did I enjoy the book? Yes Will I read more in the series? Yes Did I learn anything? Yes What did I learn? Well, I thought eidetic memory only referred to visual input but found out that it can be auditory or kinesthetic after a bit of time with google ;) Thank you to the author, NetGalley and InkSlinger for the ARC – This is my honest review.
