Love wasn't part of the plan, but those gorgeous green eyes and a hose big enough to put out my fire won me over.
I try to keep it physical, my career allowing no time for romance, but I soon learn there’s more than meets the eye with Stone.
And when I find out I’m carrying his baby, it’s clear that if I’m not careful I just might get burned.

Holy Heck. What another wonderful story. Scorchin’ is the second book in the Hot Boys Series. This book can be read as a stand-alone. Scorchin’ has romance and heat, but it also has mystery. I like that so far each book in this series has had an underlying mystery.
The plot of this book is pretty grand. I need me a Stone. This book is a single dad romance mixed in with a firefighter romance with a side of mystery. When fires break out across the city, firefighters do their job. What happens when there seems to be more to these fires than meets the eye? Add in a reporter looking for her big break and you have an amateur detective novel.
Callie is a single-minded reporter. She is determined to find out the mystery behind the city-wide fires. She finds an opening when she has a chance to interview a firefighter. I love how she is determined to make her dreams come true, but I also kind of hated her for how she went about it. Still, I liked her for the most part. Stone is a single dad. I love how he puts his child first. I also love how much he cares about his job.
Scorchin’ is an appropriate title for this book. The heat in this book is definitely scorching. These characters have some real chemistry. Even when they are denying it, they heat up the pages. Add in the sense of danger blanketing this book and that just adds to the heat. I think this aspect is perfect.
I really liked the writing style. The story is told in a dual point of view. The pace of the book is steady. I liked the anticipation and danger. The mystery just adds a layer the book needed. The characters are great. I liked checking in with the other characters as well.
Overall, this is a great book. I cannot wait to see who we get to see next. I love hot firefighters and this series has plenty of them. I like that each story has had a mystery in it as well. That, and each mystery is different. I am interested to see where the author takes this series.
Writing Style: 6/5
Rush has brought back the heat with Scorchin’; a single, hot Fireman with a cute kid in tow. Stone Black, he just sounds bad ass takes on reporter Callie Sullivan. Eager to lose her celebrity ‘who is wearing who’ tag she decides to flash a smile and hope to get some information into some suspicious fires around the area and write the story of the year, what she didn’t count on was Stone’s smarts and quick to the point attitude. When Ethan starts to piece together recent events and he decides that having Callie on his team wouldn’t be such a bad idea. when one thing leads to another Stone tries to get her on his team permanently.
Callie is a take-action kind of woman, she waiting on no man and decides early on that for her to achieve her goals nothing can stand in her way. Stone is keeping a big secret, one that keeps bringing him down into the darkest time of his life, with his son to keep him going he dumps the one-night attitude and focuses on being the best role model he can be for his son, Jason.
Callie and Stone have an instant attraction, they both can feel the magnetic pull and brings them to scorching levels, leaving you hot under the collar. Rush has reeled me in, I could not put this book down, after reading Smokin’ I couldn’t wait to get my next Fireman fix.
I personally loved this book it was the perfect mix of drama, mystery and heat. If you haven’t read book 1 of the HOT Boys series I recommend you do even though this is a standalone you will not be wanting to miss out on Fire Station 128’s finest.
Writing Style: 5/5
Olivia writes romantic suspense with healthy dose of steam. She loves writing about beautiful characters in adventurous tales. She lives with a pain in the ass teen, her awesome hubby, and the world’s coolest cat. Netflix is watched daily in the Rush household and coffee is run through an IV drip.
