USA Today best-seller Kimberly Kincaid offers up a sizzling, full-length firefighter suspense. Enemies to lovers never burned so hot on their way to happily ever after.
Lots of intrigue!
An exciting new series by Kimberly Kincaid! This book took me a bit by surprise because I was expecting a lot of firefighter action, but it actually was more about a police investigation. It was good, and kept us on our toes throughout wondering if they were going to catch the bad guys, I just wanted a bit more on the sexy firemen front!
Firefighter Kellan Walker has a lot of demons in his past that he works hard to beat down. Intense focus on his job keeps the turmoil at bay, but when he stumbles across some possible evidence to a crime at the scene of a fire they fought, he's drawn into more drama then he ever would have thought possible!
Detective Isabella Moreno isn't one of Kellan's favorite people. They have some history going back a few months and he still holds a major grudge against her for her part in placing his sister in danger during an investigation. When she's the one who shows up to investigate what he has found, he puts aside his animosity to walk her through the scene.
What starts as an innocent reporting of info turns into more than Kellan bargained for when he and Isabella wind up reluctantly teaming up to find the bad guy and find the evidence to bring him to justice. Will they be able to keep their hearts in tact as they fight their attraction to each other?
These two were fun to get to know.
They went from casual acquaintance with major irritation and frustration between them but a very sizzling attraction to quite embedded in each other’s lives for one reason after another.
The story focuses on their getting together and the build of their relationship with the reality of their jobs going on around them and through them.
I really enjoyed this story and will be reading the rest!
Skin Deep A Station Seventeen Novel #1. Kimberly Kincaid
The first in a series that will be a must read for me. We were first introduced to the Walker family in Deep Trouble, a novella written about Kylie Walker and her harrowing escape from a killer. Kellan is her older brother, a former Army sniper, now firefighter.
Kellan knew after returning from two tours in Afghanistan that a nine to five desk job just wasn't going to work. He found being a firefighter the most worthwhile and satisfying job an adrenaline junkie could have. On a routine abandoned house fire a few things were very unusual. The doors had locks similar to Fort Knox. It had a few pieces of sparse furniture, and a box of pictures that survived the fire. Kellan knew as soon as he looked at them they needed the police.
Detective Isabella Moreno is a tough cop, known to go alone into places she shouldn't. Her department is called to investigate the pictures Kellan found, and he is not happy to see her. He felt she was at fault for Kylie nearly being killed.
The pictures were of five woman, either being raped or forced into prostitution with abuse. Isabella has a secret very few people know, but those pictures set her off. She wants an investigation and to find these women immediately. Her superiors don't see it because their is no evidence. She and Kellan find themselves agreeing to do some investigating on their own. Kylie has a hand in convincing Kellan that Isabella had gone above and beyond to protect Kylie, and his anger slowly dies. But there's a lot more than investigating going on. Their attraction flames in a fire Kellan doesn't want to fight.
This story is action packed, suspenseful and very sexy. The characters at Station Seventeen are fun and interesting. I'm anxious for the next in the series.
I received this ARC from the publisher and author for a honest review.
