James Compton is a man of two worlds. For half the year, he’s Seth’s oldest boy, working with his family and the horses on Compass Ranch. The other half, he’s Jamie, a daring smokejumper on the West Yellowstone Squad. Those two halves make him feel whole, happy, satisfied. Until he meets his boss’s daughter, Ivy…
Ivy Wagner’s life should be complete. College degree in hand, she’s excited to embark on her career as a large-animal vet. Add in the attention of one very sexy James Compton, and her future should be all sunshine and steamy shared showers. However, a shattering loss in her past ensures Ivy will never date a smokejumper…no matter how perfect for her James may be.
As the couple grows closer, it’s clear they’re headed for a day of reckoning. Ivy can’t lose someone she loves to a raging wildfire, and James may be incapable of giving up a vital part of himself, of living half a life.
When James faces his own loss, the pair are forced to confront their individual demons. What will they willingly let go of…and what will they choose to fight for?
LOVED this book!!!!
**Received ARC for a fair and honest review**
Into the Fire is the second book in the Compass Boys series, this could be read as a standalone, however it is best read in order IMHO. I'd rate this book at 5 stars!! I loved this book, from beginning to end it kept me interested, no lagging, and no unnecessary extra filler or repetition. This book has just the right amount of storyline, little bit of humor, action, drama and romance. If you are familiar with the other Compass series, you will get to see some of those characters in the book, which I love! This book will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, you may want a box of kleenex handy also. I really enjoyed the characters. Loved Ivy/Scout/Doc and James/Jamie/Cowboy, they had great chemistry and there was definitely just the right amount of hot and steaminess going on! Loved the sub-characters in the book, and really liked Ivy's dad Roscoe. I had a hard time putting this book down. I'm thinking it will probably be my favorite of all of them, but will have to see when the next stories come out, which I can't wait for!!! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!
