Summary: WHERE THERE’S SMOKE…
For Jack Donovan, smoke jumping is a way of life. He lives for the adrenaline rush—the thrill of flying over the burning California hills, the intensity of diving straight into the inferno, the glory of taming the forces of nature. Love is a distant ember compared to the feeling he gets fighting fires—until an emergency call from his hometown brings him face to face with the one woman he can’t forget.
Lily never got over the handsome rogue who once kissed her senseless—and then left. She vowed she was done with love ’em-and-leave ’em men and small town life. Until a series of malicious fires set by a stalker has her running home to hide. Now, their summer is heating up as Jack fights to save her from the stalker’s fiery threats and to convince her to give the passion between them a second chance.
Thoughts: Jack Donavan is a smoke jumper, meaning he jumps from planes and puts out fires. He lives a life of adrenaline and danger. He is on a job, when he get a call from his adopted mother to come back home to help the local fire chief for the summer. Jack agrees but is very reluctant to go back to his home town of Strong, because it means there is a chance he'll run into Lily Cortez.
Contemporary Romance is not my favorite genre to read - but the cover was quite yummy, so I had to give it a go and it turned out to be a good read. Burning Up is pure adrenaline rush with a side of sexy. It's filled with romance and suspense. Jack Donavan will make your temperature rise. Marsh writes alpha males beautifully, they are just too hard to resist - for both the heroine and reader.
Score: 3 Stars
