High Heat (Hotshots #2) by Annabeth Albert ~ Book Review

Annabeth Albert’s Hotshots series continues—the emotions and intensity of Chicago Fire with the raw, natural elements of Man vs. Wild.

Smoke jumping is Garrick Nelson’s life. Nothing, not severe injuries nor the brutal physical therapy that follows, is going to stop him from getting back with his crew. But when a lost dog shows up on his front porch, he can’t turn her away, and he can’t take care of her on his own. Thankfully, help comes in the form of his new sexy, dog-loving neighbor. As they work together, trying to re-home their little princess, Garrick can’t resist his growing attraction for the other man, even though he knows this guy isn’t the staying type.

Rain Fisher doesn’t take anything too seriously. He dances through life, one adventure at a time, never settling in one place for too long. When his hot, conveniently buff, neighbor shows up on his doorstep, dog in tow, Rain’s determined to not just save the adorable puppy, but her reluctant owner as well. He never expects their flirtation might tempt him into stay put once and for all...

Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon’s fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts. Don’t miss the Hotshots series from Annabeth Albert: Burn Zone, High Heat, and Feel the Fire.

Listen to the Playlist for HIGH HEAT here:

Annabeth Albert delivers a HIGH HEAT, Hurt/Comfort, May/December, Romance that is sure to have readers rooting for Garrick and Rain right from the start.

I was looking forward to Garrick's story after Annabeth Albert told me a little about it in our Author Interview for BURN ZONE, once I heard there was a matchmaking dog involved I was all over it! I mean seriously I know I am going to have a great read because of whose writing the book but once you throw in a dog that somehow gets two guys together it's like catnip....or puppy chow for me. ;)

Garrick was severely injured in a jump during BURN ZONE, he is recovering but things aren't going the way he planned, he has to use a wheelchair or crutches to get around right now but he's determined to get back to smoke jumping the next season. 

Garrick finds a hurt dog and wants to help him but the dog is afraid of the wheelchair so he goes to his neighbors house because she has two dogs so he figures she'll be able to help him with the dog, what he didn't expect is her grandson, Rain, answering the door and sparking an interest that he hasn't had in a while.

Cookie is one heck of a matchmaker because she definitely worked her magic with getting Garrick and Rain together. Rain is what his family and friends consider an adventurer, never one to settle down for to long always looking for the next thing to do but he may just have found something or shall I say someone worth sicking around for.

I really enjoy age-gap romances when they are done right and this one definitely was. So if you enjoy age-gap romances, MM romances, Hurt/comfort romances, or are just looking for a good read I would recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
