Deep Burn Review

34382839

Deep Burn is book #2 in the Station Seventeen series but can easily be read as a stand alone book.

I love a good fire fighter story and I also like reading about females that are in male dominated roles and flourish so I was looking forward to this book. I’ll be honest though, it took me awhile to really like Shae. She was just a bit too reckless, impulsive and had very little respect for the rules (even in a job when they are obviously necessary for the safety of everyone). I wish that when she got in trouble for breaking the chain of command she would have given it a little more thought and accepted some responsibility and demonstrated that what she did was wrong instead of instantly justifying her behavior. I didn’t necessarily like her “well it all worked out because I’m a good firefighter” attitude. However, I really liked her interactions with Capelli and her acceptance of his past and non-judgment did a lot to win me over. So although her recklessness bothered me a bit her loyalty and honesty won me over and by midway through the book I was a fan of Shae.

I also really liked Capelli and found him an interesting character and I loved that he wasn’t the typical alpha male hero. He was a very logical, nerdy type hero and I found his role as tech and surveillance fitting and compelling. I also enjoyed watching him loose his completely rational thought process when confronted with his attraction to Shea.

The romance between Shea and Capelli actually worked which was surprising given how completely different these two characters were. The sex scenes were hot and I believed the emotional entanglement between them. I was actually surprised that Capelli didn’t have more of a moderating effect on Shea and vice versa and yet they do balance each other.

The suspense was interesting and it kept me reading to see how it would all play out. Although the identity of the villain was known from the beginning I still found myself on the edge reading to see how they would outwit him.

Overall, intriguing characters, a compelling romance and a great mix of suspense and romance. I look forward to more books in the Station Seventeen series.

4.5 Charms for this firefighting romance!

About afgypsysoul

I have always loved to read. My first memory of reading is winning a stuffed animal turtle for reading the most books in my 2nd grade class. I am a retired Air Force Officer who has traveled around the world with my kindle! I love anything with a romance. I'm a big fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy (as long as there's a little bit or romance), romantic suspense, contemporary romance and M/M. I have over 1000 books on my kindle that I haven't read yet and somehow I keep adding more. I never leave home without my kindle and I love reading challenges. I currently live in Phoenix with my husband and two kids. I also have two wonderful dogs a lovable pitbull and a cute dachshund. I'm still hoping my kids will pick up my love for reading!
