Won from Library Thing Early Reviewers (Nov) Overall Rating 3.50 Story Rating 3.75 Character Rating 3.25 NOTE: This was a very quick read–I did it all in one setting. The pacing and storytelling were done excellently. What I Loved: Martha Russell was a strong leading lady with a lot of backbone. She knew what had to be done in order to help other people and was willing to do it. How her story played out and the ultimate ending were perfectly within her character’s characteristics. I was very impressed with that. What I Liked: While not as enduring as Martha, I felt that Theo Mirkwood was a dashing leading man. While I knew it would all work out in the end, it took awhile for me to warm up to him. Complaints: I would have liked a little more romance–especially towards the end. It seemed to wrap up a little too quickly

NOTE: Totally irked over cover—don’t describe a guy as long black hair (which I totally pictured) and then have a guy with short hair on the front. Sorry that is just a cover pet peeve of mine.

(I am really digging these Firefighters)

NOTE: I am kind of doing a series review for these so that is why they are so short and to the point!

Read for FUN! Overall Rating 4.00 (I am really digging these Firefighters) NOTE: I am kind of doing a series review for these so that is why they are so short and to the point! Review: This was my favorite story in the series because I felt Sean and Eve were such well constructed characters. Honestly watching Sean go through all his ups and downs since the beginning of the series made his rode to romance beautiful. The action is up in this edition to the series and since Jo said the police officers are getting a series—I was just super excited to meet what I think will be the lead characters in that series. I will be counting down till I get the hot policemen to go with my hot firefighters πŸ™‚ Great Job Jo Davis! Great Job!
