The only fire he can’t put out…

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.

Is the torch he carries for her...

Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan’s biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.

Kassiah: I put this on my TBR way back in March. We had an interview with Sarah Humphreys then, and I totally loved her after that.

I love reunion stories, and this one had a twist that I don’t usually see: she left, breaking his heart. It’s usually the other way around! So, about this story. Ten years ago, Jordan left her high school sweetheart, Gavin. She went to NYC, tried her hand at acting, got married and had two kids. She’s back in town (recently divorced and caring for her dying father) and quickly reunites with Gavin, who is now the fire chief and hotter than ever. At first, she just wants to be friends, but you know that doesn’t last long.

The characters are funny and realistic, and I loved their history together. I love that Gavin wasn’t a jerk to her, and I loved seeing him with her kids. He was so sweet! Even though this story is relatively fluffy, there is some suspense and a little bit of drama. The story didn’t feel rushed or unrealistic, and I liked pretty much everything about it. It wasn’t very steamy, and that’s really my only complaint.

If you love second-chance-at love stories and hot firemen, you’ll really like Brave the Heat!
