Wild Heat
3.5 Stars

Synopsis:
Shattered by grief following the death of her brother, Maya Jackson has a close sexual encounter with a complete stranger. Six months later she finds herself investigating a series of arson fires and discovers that her biggest mistake is also her prime suspect – dedicated Hotshot firefighter, Logan Cain. Soon Maya and Logan are on a collision course not only with each other but with a crazed killer with a passion for setting fires.

Review:
The arson premise makes for a good plot and reminds me of Nora Roberts’ recent release Chasing Fire, but without the excessive firefighting descriptions.

The characters are likeable even though too much space is dedicated to describing how gorgeous, honorable and self-sacrificing the hero is. He definitely suffers from the “overly perfect hero” syndrome. I was expecting much more anger and angst at his being accused of being an arsonist but he just takes it in stride. Maya is a strong and intelligent character. She has a good backstory and her emotions and reactions are to be expected. Nevertheless, there is something missing from her relationship with Logan – their connection feels forced despite their chemistry.

The writing is iffy with one or two discrepancies such as the hero starting out with brown eyes and ending up with blue. Also, there are too many unrealistic scenes. For example, neither protagonist thinks of calling the police/fire department after Logan’s truck explodes in his driveway. Instead, sex seems to be the only thing on their minds.

The arson investigation develops well even though it could have been more detailed and interesting. There are some good suspects but not enough clues for readers to really work it out for themselves. The villain is unexpected but logical, which is a pleasant surprise and garners the book an extra half star.

In sum, a promising start to the series and I will read the next one. ( )

This book was okay. It suffers from having nothing special about it that stands out. There was mystery, suspense, romance, and sexual encounters, but none of it reaches out and grabs the reader. It is the beginning of a series of books about Hotshot firefighters. ( )

I loved the flow of this novel. In some parts as the fire was raging the pace of the novel was raging, too.

Review:

"Wild Heat" by Bella Andre was the first book in this new series: 'Hot Shots' Men of Fire which was of a hot firefighter who fight wildfires! This novel was of a scorching romantic suspenseful mystery read that once you start reading this steamy read it will be hard to put down until the very end. I loved how this author was able to present to us a good read of an arson investigator and a hot 'Hot Shot' firefighter taking place in Tahoe, Nevada. Now, to get the all and all of the story you will have to pick up "Wild Heat" to see how this author does it and it will be a good read for a beginning of a series. There will be some suspense, along with a hot romance and also a learning part about these brave 'wildland firefighters.' Be ready for a lots of twist and turns as you read to find out who the real arsonist is. I even guessed who it was...can you? This story was able to bring out many adventures as you read through the story. I found the characters were all well developed, likable, believable, and so very colorful only to help make this novel a very captivating read. And in the end will the guy get girl? Well, keep reading to find out! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440245001, Mass Market Paperback)

He's a hotshot firefighter addicted to risk.
She's the sultry beauty he never saw coming.

Maya Jackson doesn’t sleep with strangers. Until the night grief sent her to the nearest bar and into the arms of the most explosive lover she’s ever had. Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake. Now her number one suspect in a string of deadly wildfires.

Risking his life on a daily basis is what gets Logan up in the morning. As the leader of the elite Tahoe Pines Hotshot Crew, he won’t back down from a blaze—or from beautiful, lethal Maya Jackson. She may have seduced him with her tears and her passion, but it’ll be a cold day in hell before Logan lets down his guard again. But when Maya’s life is threatened, his natural-born-hero instincts kick in, and Logan vows to protect the woman sworn to bring him down. And as desire reignites, nothing—not the killer fire nor the killer hot on their trail—can douse the flames.…
