Up in Smoke (Hotshots #4) by Annabeth Albert ~ Book Review

Three Men and a Baby meets Backdraft with explosive chemistry and heartfelt feels.

Freewheeling smoke jumper Brandt Wilder thrives on adrenaline. He’s never met a parachute he can’t repair or a dangerous situation he couldn’t wrangle his way out of. He’s popular and fun-loving and not at all looking to settle down or form lasting relationships. It’s a lifestyle that’s served him well…right up until the day he finds a baby on his doorstep.

Shane Travis is used to putting his country music career—and his own happiness—on hold after his sister rolls through his life. Like last spring when she convinced him to try skydiving for his birthday—and she walked away with the hot parachute instructor.

Now he gets to deliver the piece of news that will upend Brandt’s carefree life: he very well might be a dad.

Shane’s niece is safe in Brandt’s strong, capable hands, but too many questions remain unanswered. Co-parenting while they sort it out leads to late-night talks, and soul-bearing confessions lead to a most inconvenient attraction. Still, Shane can’t leave this makeshift family behind—even if it means playing house with the one man he can’t resist.

Annabeth Albert is my favorite MM author and I don't say that lightly, I don't even read the book blurb most times before I dive in because it doesn't matter I know whatever she writes is going to suck me in from the very beginning and not let me go. And that is just what happened with this book.

Up In Smoke is the fourth book in the Hotshots Series, each of which can be read as a standalone, this is Brandt Wilder and Shane Travis' story. Shane is a trying to make a name for himself in the country music world and Brandt is a Smoke Jumper, they first meet on Shane's birthday when his sister talked him into going sky diving for his birthday and Brandt was the instructor. 

Now fast forward eleven months and Shane shows up on Brandt's doorstep with a baby in his arms...a baby that may just be Brandt's if the birth certificate his sister left with her is correct. Is Brandt the babies daddy? Can these two men find common ground and work through their feelings while caring for a baby? So many questions and the only way you're going to get answers is to grab a copy for yourself.

I highly recommend not only this book but each book in the series because they are all great reads. If you enjoy Surprise Baby Romances, MM Romances, Virgin Hero Romances, Close Proximity Romances, Firefighter Romances, or Musician Romances then this book is for you.

Happy Reading!!!
