There's a 12 alarm fire burning in Hellfire, TX
There's a 12 alarm fire in Hellfire, TX and it's burning between Kinsey and Becket. This book, being released initially as part of the 12-alarm cowboys box set, is hot. The author manages to develop a new relationship between Kinsey and Becket while accurately and sensitively portraying the after effects of domestic abuse. I really appreciated how the author includes the emotional reaction of a domestic abuse victim, how the support of other people can help that victim, and other resources available to a victim, all in the context of a contemporary romance. I also loved the firefighter aspects of the story - give me a cowboy AND a firefighter in the same character - yummy. The author also introduces us to other members of the Grayson family, which I could only hope means there are more stories yet to come from Hellfire, TX.
Hot, sexy, suspensful!
Kinsey Phillips is running away from an abusive relationship. Her car catches on fire and Becket Grayson gets her away from it before it explodes. They realize that they know each other from growing up together many years ago. The attraction between Kinsey and Becket can’t be denied even though neither of them is looking for a relationship.
This book has a lot of suspense and kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. The sexy time is hot and steamy. This is a complete story with no cliffhanger (yay!). Becket has several siblings and I hope there will be books for each of them.
Another great story by Elle James!
I purchased a copy of this book in the 12-Alarm Cowboys boxed set but I also received a preview copy from the author.
